“The most significant reason why I chose to become a chiropractor over any other type of health care provider is because I wanted to see people through all stages of care as they were getting better, not only when they were at their worst. The non-invasive, yet effective care provided by chiropractic treatment allows for a specific, patient-centered approach that is rewarding for both the patient and the doctor.”
