CLÍNICA JAKTER

Founded in 1982 and is directed by Dr. Isaac Jakter.

MISSION

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our patients, either by treating their diseases according to their pathologies or by preventing them through the AgeWellness program. 

VISION

Our vision is to get people to start connecting with medicine from the place of prevention and to avoid resorting to it only when they are already suffering from a physical disease.

We want to expand this vision from Uruguay to the world, placing special emphasis on our AgeWellness program created by Dr. Isaac Jakter
