On Thursday, LivWell Health officially opened its doors with a ribbon cutting held by the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce.

LivWell Health is a multidisciplinary wellness collective dedicated to helping individuals achieve their ideal health, appearance and overall well-being.

Ryan Gatens said it has been exciting putting together the LivWell vision with partners John Veal, Jordan Martinec and Abayomi Oshinowo.

“It’s been fun working with those guys, getting this thing going and creating something new — something to be excited about in medicine that’s away from the COVID world. We’re blessed for sure,” Gatens said.

Gatens said the idea of bringing LivWell to LaGrange came from the want to create some excitement in medicine from a patient perspective.

“A lot of people have been afraid of hospitals and clinics settings because of COVID. In medicine in general, we thought it was bringing a negative connotation as we went through COVID. We wanted to find something that gave excitement back to people in medicine — things that made people feel good,” Gatens said.

“Through urgent care, we saw some gaps in the community, particularly in the primary care world and wanted to come up with some creative things that we can offer the community and small businesses in the primary care realm. LivWell is a lot of concepts into one. We want to be a one-stop shop for the citizens of Troup County.”

LivWell offers primary care, weight loss, and esthetics including Botox, lip fillers, hydra facials, waxing, eyebrows, eyelashes and more.

“We’re bringing multiple modalities into one space so that people don’t have to shop around,” Gatens said. ‘We’re also going to offer a direct primary care model that will be for the small businesses in town. Employers that are in that small business realm can have the opportunity to give their employees a benefit if they can’t afford insurance for them.”

Gatens said he feels the quality and variety of what LivWell offers will set them apart and bring in potential new clients.

“We are a one-stop shop. A lot of the things we do are connected, and we want to put a positive vibe back into healthcare and allow people to be excited about their bodies and lifestyle. One of the staples of LivWell and what it’s about is self and seeing yourself in a positive light,” Gatens said.

LivWell is located at 210 W Broome Street.
