I have been a Nationally Board Certified Chiropractor for 29 years. I graduated from Life Chiropractic College (now Life Univ.) in 1983. After graduating I worked for one year as an Associate Doctor in the Washington, D.C. area.
It was during this year that I began exploring Applied Kinesiology, Eastern Medicine, Nutrition, Homeopathy, Naturopathy and other “Natural” health protocols as I began to be on my way to becoming a “Holistic Chiropractor”.
In 1984 I opened my own practice, also in the Washington, D.C. area, where I remained for 21 years. I became a Certified Applied Kinesiologist (similar to a residency in medicine), a Certified Chiropractic Sport and Rehab Specialist, and a Diplomate in Disability Ratings.
During this period of time I also became a Certified Practitioner in the following Chiropractic Techniques:
- NET (Neuro Emotional Tech)
- Body/Mind Tech
- SOT (Sacral-Occipital Tech)
- Nutrition Response Testing
- Extremity Adjusting Tech
- Cranial Respiratory Reflex Tech.
My practice began to evolve over the years moving away from patients who just wanted a fast adjustment for their neck or low back pain, into a full “Holistic Total Body Practice”.
As both a Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist, I was able to help patients with all types of health problems. People came to see me for Fatigue, Digestive problems, Malaise, Fibryomyalgia, Migraines, TMJ, PMS, Peri and Post Menopausal symptoms, Irritable Bowel, ADD/ADHD, Autism, Autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome to just name a few.
In 2004 I was nominated as a “Top Chiropractor in America” by my peers, an honor I do not take lightly. During this same year my family and I moved back to the New York area where I was originally from.
Rather than opening up a large practice incorporating other Chiropractors, and other “Natural” healthcare practitioners as I had done in the past, I decided to have a small office totally dedicated to helping patients regain their health. Most of my patients have not done well either with traditional medicine or other “Alternative” healthcare practitioners. They have usually been told that there is nothing really wrong with them or they will have to just learn to live with it. When they find me, they are so relieved that someone can finally tell them what is wrong with them and then help them get well and begin living a full life again!
As I enter my 29th year of practice, I continue to be excited about adding all the new protocols I continually learn, so that I may provide my patients with the best possible care. By continuing to broaden my techniques and skills I keep learning more and more about how amazing the human body actually is and all the wonderful things it capable of achieving.
