After 31 years in practice and under advice from his physician, Dr. Torkko has decided to retire. The clinic will be closing and seeing patients for the last time on May 19th, 2017. He is thankful for all the years he has been able to faithfully serve his community and improve his patients health and lifestyles. He is excited and comforted to highly recommend Dr. Ryan Fisher, whom all his patients will now be seeing. Dr. Fisher has been in practice since 2002 and has the same passion for chiropractic as Dr. Torkko and utilizes the same techniques, treatment tables, and arthro stem adjusting tools that Dr. Torkko has utilized for 31 years.
