When I was a young boy and attended school at St Lukes in Flint Mi, I was in the second grade and leaned over to pick up my books and felt a pain in my neck. For the rest of that day my neck was bent to the side, stiff and sore. Later that night, when my father came home, saw me and said “son you need to see the chiropractor.” He promptly took me to see the doctor who gently adjusted my crooked , sore 7yr old neck, to the right, then to the left.
For me that was a life changing moment . I think from that point on, my goal in life, my passion, was to become a chiropractor. The following years to come I graduated with honors from Hamady High School, the draft for Vietnam had ended and almost joined the navy. Keeping chiropractic in my sights I attended the University of Michigan, Western Michigan University – joined Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity and survive it and was ultimately accepted to and graduated from the National College of Chiropractic.
Mission accomplished!! Over the ensuing years I have maintained professional license in the state of Michigan and Florida. I’m a member of the Knights of Columbus, 4th degree, and the sons of Italy.
I have also been the team doctor for the Mount Morris High School athletics since 2003. I have been in practice for 28yrs. Restoring and maintaining health through chiropractic is my mission in life.
I welcome you to come to my office and meet me personally.
