ABOUT OUR COMPANY: 


Our founder, Logan Chierotti, nearly lost his hearing when he was a teenager.  When it seemed that modern medicine ran out of answers, Logan found a solution in natural supplements.  After a short period of taking a natural supplement, his hearing was nearly completely restored. That experience kicked off a life-long appreciation for the capability and role of supplements in one’s health. 


Not long after that experience, Logan went on to build several successful companies in various industries. In late 2017, Logan pursued his passion for building a supplement company. He started Physician’s Choice on the premise that high-quality supplements can and should be a trustworthy part of your health regimen.
