Arianna Contreras

While we are sad to lose our beloved RN Barb Berry who had been with us for almost 3 years, she was offered an incredible position in Women’s Health at Providence that was simply irresistible. Good luck to Barb! (who will be back on occasion as a “casual” employee when Gabby and Arianna need a break!) and WELCOME ARIANNA!

Why Healthy Connections?

We can help find the missing pieces for your personal healthcare puzzle!

After 20+ years of practicing traditional Internal Medicine in an increasingly challenging healthcare system – and suffering his own mysterious, unremitting symptoms- Dr. Jeff Horacek knew there were pieces of the healthcare puzzle that were missing for many of his clients (and himself). He saw too many people who – despite strong motivation and dedication to resolve their health conditions – simply did not improve. When he discovered the exciting research and practice of Functional Medicine and a systems-biology, root-cause, holistic approach to healing, he knew this provided the answers to these previously un-resolvable cases! He wanted to open a clinic that not only helps clients improve their overall health, but also provides healthy connections, hope, empowerment, and personalized lifestyle practices to continue their progress for the rest of their lives.
