Dr. Damir Matic
When he is not in the OR or at the clinic, we would like to say you would find him shredding the slopes but you wouldn’t be able to unless you made your way to the backcountry, unmarked, un-patrolled areas. He has skied in some of the most beautiful & secluded areas! When you also visit our clinic you will be able to see his other passion which is art. Our clinic is decorated with Dr. Matic’s passion and creates a great modern vibe for our new space.
