I was raised by parents and grandparents who routinely visited chiropractors. When I was about 4 years old I was taken to the hospital because my leg would give out and polio was feared at that time. I hated being in the hospital and still remember being in a crib in that ward of screaming other kids. After determining that I did not have polio, I was taken to my family’s chiropractor and he discovered that I had a pinched nerve in my hip. The problem was solved!
During my late teens and early 20’s I suffered from severe migraines. Once again chiropractic care gave me relief and my newest chiropractor urged me to go into the field saying that I had the hands for it. I had already obtained my Bachelor of Arts in biology and chemistry as premed, tried retail sales, real estate sales, and even worked as page for George Ryan who was minority leader of the Illinois House of Representatives at that time. Even after all of these experiences I was still not satisfied and knew I had to continue my education. In 1979 I finally gave it a chance and enrolled in chiropractic college. Eight years later in 1987, I opened on Diversey Avenue and have been at that location ever since.
As far as what I feel my mission is??? I wish to provide good chiropractic care to as many people as possible while still being affordable in this time of self pay and high deductibles. I strive to provide goal-oriented, as well as quick relief, for neck and back injuries from over use and accidents. I also provide routine care to maintain mobility and health. I do have X-ray available but only use as needed, as I never push high pressure sales tactics.
