In our practice for the past 30 years or so we have helped literally thousands regain health. I have never hesitated to add a new technology when it proved, after testing, to be of benefit to helping people get and stay well. My goal has always been to put the patient first and value the Universal Intelligence that resides in everything.  We do not limit who we see and trust that they visit us for help in maximizing their health potential.  We begin by trusting our patients and want our patients to trust our team and myself for we are here to help and do so honestly with common sense.  We work with other health professionals and do not hesitate to call upon them if that dimension of care will assist in reaching the patients goal.

Knowing that Chiropractic care is Turning Spinal Motion into Body Energy for health maintenance and repair makes what we do very powerful and valuable to those who understand Chiropractic’s potential.

Our primary goal is to provide care that addresses the patients primary complaint or health interest then provide the most logical common sense approach to apply care to address the patients goal.  With experience, keeping up with the very latest advancements in health care and utilizing technology to speed and refine our analysis and diagnosis treatment is individualized for maximum results.

A very important aspect of our services includes patient education.  Understanding Chiropractic should be an important part of everyone’s life for the nervous system controls everything directly or indirectly in the body.  Our web site is designed to educate those who wish to know more about the body with over 70 videos covering most of what anyone would need to know relative to the worlds largest natural healing art.  We do not require those who visit out office to know everything about Chiropractic but we certainly encourage you to self educate yourself as it will be beneficial in understanding why,  how and when relative to your personal progress.

I am a Doctor of Chiropractic 24 hours per day,  no matter where I am and what I am doing.  From childhood I have helped those in need.  I still hold the value of a handshake as an honorable commitment, I do what I say and am a man of my word.

If a person wants me to do what is right rather than just tell them what they want to hear I can help.

We have always accepted new patients and  will continue to do so.

We are here for the welfare of the public. Everyone at any age can benefit from Chiropractic care as it maintains and improves the function of the nervous system.

By utilizing the best in administrative technology to proven methods, techniques and health care technological advancements we will provide the best available care to who requests it.  If further evaluation is needed from other health care providers we do NOT hesitate to refer to other specialists or for needed tests.

By only accepting those we feel we can help and to those who are cooperative we will do everything in our power to provide care at a reasonable fee.  We wish  to help as many people as humanly possible and educate those who care about natural health care.  My life has been dedicated to making a difference and delivering the future. You get to decide if we pass or if we fail.
