Thank you for coming to our website. I would like to tell you why I am a chiropractor. As a child, my mother took me to her chiropractor because I had a lot of health issues. I suffered from chronic respiratory disorders, I got sick easily, I was not very coordinated, my eyesight was poor in one eye and while I did well at school, my physical body was a bit of a mess.
My spine was adjusted over a period of time and my health improved dramatically as a result. By the time I was a sophomore in high school, I no longer needed glasses to play sports, my coordination improved, I was able to fight off illness quickly and I completely recovered from a severe fever and mononucleosis in one week with the help of my chiropractor. At around that same time, my older brother who had chosen chiropractic over dentistry was a big influence on me.
My guidance counselor asked me what I would like to do after high school to which I replied “I’m going to be a chiropractor”. I was told it was not one of the choices in his counselling book and maybe I should consider medicine. I stuck to my original goal and he closed my file and told me not to come back. I took a lot of flack from people I respected over my choice, but I persevered and was put on a fast track to graduation with a chiropractic degree at age 21.
My purpose as a Doctor of Chiropractic is to restore health naturally to the suffering, to educate my patients about the importance of the spine to their health, to maintain the highest standards of care, and to continue to learn and upgrade myself so that I can better serve my patients. I am proud to say that my son has chosen the chiropractic profession as his career path.
