WICHITA — Five employees of Riordan Clinic (formerly known as the Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning International) have left to form their own clinic.
“We’re going to be doing a lot of what we were doing before,” says Jan Revard, a biochemist who handled marketing and public relations for Riordan.
The new business, which will open in a couple of weeks, is Vis Clinic.
“Vis is the healing power of nature,” Revard says.
The clinic will open in 3,600 square feet of a building south of Il Vicino and Gessler Drug Co. near Douglas and Oliver.
It will have two doctors: Rebecca Kirby, a family practice doctor and registered dietitian, and Chad Krier, a naturopathic physician and chiropractor.
Registered nurses Marsha McCray and Michelle Swift also left Riordan to form the new clinic.
Revard and Angela Krier, Chad Krier’s wife, will handle marketing and PR as well as the office and reception at the new clinic.
“It’s going to be a nutritionally based clinic,” Revard says.
