Farewell Letter to My Patients

Due to my ongoing illness, I have made the gut wrenching decision to retire from my full time practice and sell the clinic. It was the toughest, but most important decision I have had to make thus far in my life. My health and the health of my family has to remain my number one priority, so my last day in the clinic will be November 1, 2019.

Having said that, I have found the most amazing team to carry on the Vitality Clinic legacy and continue to provide the standard of care my patients have come to expect.

This decision was so hard for so many reasons….
1. I have created some of the most memorable and long standing relationships with patients over the last 18 years.
2. I LOVE providing care to patients knowing it will make a difference in their lives.
3. I have the BEST team to work alongside with; Lucas, Jenny, Rob, Clarissa, Natalie, and TJ. You inspire me and I have learnt so much from each and every one of you, both professionally and personally. I would be remiss if I didn’t include all the past practitioners who chose to work in the clinic and then went on to create their own legacies.
4. I love coming to work again because Bri and Christine make it fun again. Thank you, thank you, thank you for always having my back and working SO IMMENSELY hard to ensure we have smooth days! I love hearing about your lives and being able to be a small part of it.

Writing this I have tears streaming down my face… Vitality was the first “baby” I had and after 16 years, it’s now in its adolescence. I know it will continue to grow as the new owners have so many exciting and positive changes to look forward to.

I wish you all the very best and hope you never forget me, as I know I will never forget each and every one of you.

Smile, laugh, and love freely; life is too short!
Dr. Crysta Serné
Chiropractor and previous owner of Vitality Clinic
