I am a second generation Chiropractor to the area. I attended Fort Myers High School, Edison College for a portion of my pre-med, Florida State University for a portion of my pre-med, and Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia where I obtained my Doctorate Degree in Chiropractic. I practiced for 5 years in the area surrounding Atlanta, GA, and then moved back to southwest Florida to be closer to my family. I have practiced in the Fort Myers local since 1997. I have enjoyed raising my family here in my hometown of Fort Myers, Florida. My approach to Chiropractic Care is to first listen well to the patient’s needs, and note their issues. Sometimes doctors can disconnect from their patients and become absorbed with the operation of their practice, and don’t listen as well. I want to understand what my patient is going through. I have personally experienced migraine headaches, whiplash, and sciatica and therefore can relate to the patients suffering. This experience helps me to diagnose what their issues are and what would work best for their condition. So, as a Doctor and a member of the community I understand there are many choices for Chiropractic Care and health care in general. It is an honor when patients choose our office for their Chiropractic needs. We love to give our patients the highest quality care. We provide massage, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and other therapies to compliment their treatment care for a conservative approach to their health.
