WVCG WELCOMES DR. JANICE OLDHAM
We are thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Janice Oldham, Doctor of Chiropractic, to the WVCG Family! Dr. Oldham joins us with more than eight years of chiropractic expertise and has been working in clinics across the GTA. She is excited to bring the same high quality care that our patients have come to expect over the years. Some of you may already be familiar with Dr. Oldham as she has joined our clinic during Dr. van der Mark’s recent summer business trip and family vacation.
“In looking to grow our clinic, while continuing to meet the needs of our current and new patients, it was important to find a chiropractor who complemented our practice focus and one who would provide the quality of care our patients have come to expect,” says Dr. Cheryl van der Mark. “Not only does Dr. Janice bring those qualities to our clinic, but she is a local mom, active in the community. It is a perfect fit. We invite you to come on by and say hello to our newest team member!”
Please note that Dr. Cheryl van der Mark is still offering her same weekly hours, but the addition of another chiropractor allows us to expand business hours and better serve our community.
