Clancy Medical Group
Clancy Medical Group in Vista, CA, is a family-focused practice—both professionally and personally. Led by spouses Drs. Tara and John Clancy, the team at Clancy Medical Group specialize in osteopathic medicine, which includes treatment of diabetes, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and auto-immune illnesses such as arthritis. They treat patients from six years of age to geriatric.
A cornerstone of their philosophy is taking a holistic approach to medical care. To effectively heal and maintain optimum health and wellness, the Clancys believe it is vital to embrace the whole person—along with their family—by treating both the body and mind. They also encourage patients to live a healthier lifestyle through diet and exercise, which is also the key to remaining independent as we grow older.
