Dr. Valere Beeck, D.C. 

Vice President


“I am not exactly sure what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ Rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?’” 
– Mother Teresa
