Describe the most rewarding experience that you have had working with a patient?
One of my most rewarding experiences treating a patient occurred in 2000 when a mid 30's gentleman came in to see me out of desperation and looking for a solution to a scheduled neck surgery. After reviewing his chart, readings and MRI, I had little to no hope to give him as far as where we could get with him. I took him on as a patient with great hesitance and under his insistence and admiral persistence. His body responded favorably to my treatment protocol. After working and keeping his surgeon up to date, his surgeon determined that surgery was no longer necessary for the neck condition with severe herniations at multiple levels. 13 years later, this man remains fully functional, symptom free and has now been my accountant for the past 12 years, bicycling riding partner and friend.
What does living in the Portland community mean to you?
Recently moved after practicing for many years in South Florida, living in the Portland community means being an active member in this community for the community. Adopting the sense of preservation, conservation and respect for our environment. I am welcome as to the level of education by Portlanders with regards to their health, questioning and taking responsibility for their own health and going back to the basics which has been around a lot longer than pills have.
What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
People are beginning to realize that suppressing symptoms is not the answer. There is more obesity, toxicity, childhood diseases now than ever in the history of man. Putting more toxins in the body is abused. To avoid truly reaching a point where your body cannot recover and heal, we must return to basics considering biomechanical techniques and natural products and proper diet. Avoiding the necessity of synthetic drugs that later add toxicity to our bodies. Now more than ever, even when healing technologies such as mine were not looked at and even ridiculed, Now more than ever, people choice for handling lower back pain, Neck pain and other spinal conditions are now natural methods and particularly Chiropractic. But Chiropractic has advanced tremendously. To be a Chiropractor today and being cutting edge with the profession gives me purpose.
What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?
treating acute herniated discs with radicular symptoms with my knowledge on how to treat them. Also the post acute phase or multi facet conditioning is also my forte. Treating both acute or recent whiplash injury and the chronic where the patient is now experiencing long term effects of a poorly managed whiplash injury.
In a perfect world, when would you like to retire, where would you go and what would you do?
I cant ever see myself retiring from Chiropractic. I may in the future reduce my hours but treating patients is a treat.
