“I have been a chiropractor for over 15 years. I started my Brecksville practice in 2002. At that time it was my vision to establish a one of a kind practice where Chiropractors and Medical Doctors would work together to provide optimal patient care. Over this past year that dream has become a reality. My goal has always been to teach people to be well. A patient may come in needing sick care and my goal is to transition that into well care, through chiropractic, exercise, acupuncture, massage, nutrition, and education; an overall healthy lifestyle. My message has always been that it is better to prevent something than to wait until it is broken.”
