I understand that a large percentage of health problems can be helped without the use of drugs or surgery. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, my passion is helping the sick, the hurt, and those that have lost all hope. I understand that health care is a team approach, and that the patient's input is just as valuable as the doctor's. My goal is to help my patients to be able to live their lives to their fullest degree of function, just as God intended it.
