At Life Care, we have worked hard to create a helpful, respectful, and friendly team. We have a positive culture where everyone enjoys working together, as well as spending time together outside of work. Our team recently got out some frustrations by throwing axes and we had a great time painting while sipping some wine. Our team is led by Dr. McKenna Guettinger, who appreciates and respects work/life balance. To round out the group, our practice manager, Jeff, keeps our practice running smoothly and is constantly looking for ways we can improve.
Our practice is open Monday – Friday, 8 am to 6 pm, and Saturday, 8 am to 12 pm.
