In a Fall Know Your Neighbor feature, CEO of Body Structure Medical Fitness, Kevin Balcirak recalled the car accident that changed his life and inspired him to create Body Structure, a place that provides a path from medical conditions toward a healthier life.

It happens to all of us and is normal. The key is to work through those thoughts to get back on a positive path.”
Family Practice Associates founder Dr. Jeffrey Foxx contracted COVID-19 early on in the pandemic. His team says, “Dr. Foxx’s motto has always been ‘Do the Right Thing’ and that’s what FPA has been doing throughout this pandemic.” Adaption to services has been key for FPA, as it has been for many businesses who’ve had to pivot their business model to meet current safety protocols.

“While we have grown in size, our patient-first philosophy and family-like atmosphere have been maintained; we love developing a relationship with our patients,” says Dr. Jacqui. “We take pride not only in the results we achieve for our clients, but also in the way we care for everyone.”
