CV19 UPDATE: Oak Clinic closed, we are planning to reopen in June but are waiting for more clarity from the Government & HSE regarding laws and advisory notices. However, we are taking names of patients who want to book appointments for themselves or children.

The Oak Clinic was established in Killaloe, by Gideon Seth Ries & Paula Seth in 2002, where it has thrived, attracting patients by word of mouth from all over Ireland to their waterside location on the banks of Lough Derg where it meets the River Shannon. The Oak Clinic is a family-orientated Complementary Medicine Clinic that maintains friendly relations with GP’s and other Health Professionals.
