Why Winding River?
We decided to name our practice Winding River because we view life as a river. A river moves forth, carving its own pathway through the world, sometimes there are opportunities, sometimes there are obstacles, sometimes you have to change direction, or sometimes things don't go according to plan.
Our job is to help keep you on course by providing you with the highest quality healthcare possible.
