Along with her team of highly trained doctors, she has helped thousands of women and men achieve optimum health and balance. She also set up our own compounding pharmacy, Specialist Pharmacy, where each prescription is prepared to the unique specifications of the patient. It is this personalised approach that has always put the Marion Gluck Clinic at the head of the pack and enabled her to offer the best possible care to the patients treated.
