Cleaning Up Our Skin Care

When I was in naturopathic school, one of my favourite classes was herbal medicine lab where we would make tinctures, creams, balms etc. out of wild-crafted herbs.

Here’s a little bit of trivia for our longtime patients. Did you know that we had a name before Brio? Does anyone know what the original name was?

When we agreed to move forward to open a clinic, Dr. Lee had mentioned he had a clinic name registered and a logo to match. Long story short, Dr. Lee felt all due diligence was completed to register the name.  When we opened the clinic […]

In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, Dr. Jeffrey Lee and Dr. Neetu Dhiman have shared some of thoughts looking back at the evolution of Brio over the years.
What were you doing before Brio?

Dr. Neetu:
