In 2012, Dr. Juarez-Drew opened a second clinic, Vida Hermosa Chiropractic in San Juan Capistrano, California. She chose this name because it projects the essence of how she likes to practice. She enjoys helping her patients help themselves to live a “Beautiful Life” through proper diet, exercise and chiropractic care.
