Celebrating 75 years


Visalia Medical Clinic is excited to celebrate 75 years of helping people of
all ages Be Well.

Much as changed since Dr. I.M. Lipson and his son-in-law, Dr. William S. Neal, with Dr. J.H. Brady, formed the practice in 1941.  Today, we are better equipped than ever to diagnose and treat illness and VMC is pleased to offer the best technology and the finest physicians and staff in the region.

Watch for news about how we will celebrate our 75th throughout 2016. Thank you for being part of our history and our future.
