OUR WIN HEALTH TEAM

History

The Startup

Our WIN Health Team is a group of licensed health care professionals that are focused on helping you move better and feel great.  We offer health services to the Niagara Falls and Fonthill communities and have been supporting the health of people in the Niagara Region for nearly 20 years.

Dr. Ernie Bagnulo and Dr. Laura Imola started the clinic in 2006 after merging their vision and passion for health.  With Dr. Ernie’s experience as a Chiropractor and Dr. Laura’s experience as a Naturopathic Doctor, they grew to what we know today as WIN Health.

The clinic started small and had humble beginnings. WIN kept its focus on providing quality treatment and individualized care with a warm clinic setting and friendly health care providers.

Over the years, the clinic has grown and we are proud to offer a dynamic range of care at two clinics, located in Niagara Falls and Fonthill, Ontario. In this time, we have remained focused on continuing to offer these services with the same care we established in the beginning.

Our team includes chiropractors, physiotherapists, a naturopathic doctor, registered massage therapists and a personal trainer.

After many years of working together, listening to our patients and staying current in the health industry, the WIN Team continues to support the growth of their original goal of providing exceptional health care. It is through this vision that we work with individuals to find their truest and best expression of health.
