A note from your Doctor
Like many physicians and patients, I have spent a lot of time looking for the answer to make my patients feel better. After 12 years and countless hours of therapies, adjustments, rehabilitation, exercises, seminars, patient stories and more, I have found the answer: be open. There isn’t one answer. There are many solutions. I firmly believe we can make you feel better than you ever have. You can recover, become more flexible, take strides to being more athletic, rehab an injury completely, live longer, and have true wellness.
This Care Center Network was formed from those ideals. Here you will find me and the other doctors, therapists and trainers discussing how we can combine our knowledge, skills, equipment and techniques to reach your goals for health and wellness. It is a true team philosophy practice. We wanted to create a place where all your medical, health, fitness and wellness needs are met.
