Our Wellness Clinic

MaraCare Solutions provides patients with a variety of services to help restore balance of mind, body and skin.  Whether you are looking for a more youthful appearance with facial injections or are seeking resolution of bothersome veins, Lauren will individualize a treatment plan right for you.  Dr Jeff Mara has teamed up with BioTE medical to provide bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) to help solve hormone imbalances in both women and men. He also sees patients who qualify for medical cannabis to provide state mandated recommendations, as well as guidance and support that can rarely be found in the medical cannabis field. MaraCare also has an infrared sauna and a massage therapist in office.  We will soon be adding additional services and treatments to our practice including IV therapy, dermal fillers, medical grade peels, platelet rich plasma (PRP) facials and hair loss treatment.  We are available by appointment and offer flexible hours for patient convenience including early mornings, evenings and weekends.
