Wow. As I look back into my patient records I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to help thousands and thousands of patients with their journey to better health. In my 30-plus years of practice, I have seen such transformational change in healthcare, both in relationship to the shift in type of ailments that cause ill health, and in the diagnostic tools available to detect and help these hurting people.

I have found that many health conditions have increased in complexity and are occurring at younger ages. There are many factors for this occurrence including genetics, poor diets, environmental toxins, increased stress, and lack of physical activity. Every day is an adventure with the variety of conditions and ages of patients that we are able to help. The joy a mother has when her newborn is now not crying through the night; the elderly man who can now travel to see his family because he does not have to be in close proximity to a bathroom; or the school-aged child that is now able to sit in class and concentrate without being disruptive to others, and off his medication. These are the outcomes that I have a passion for. I look at myself as a health detective, a treater, and a coach.

Michigan State University, my alma mater, was my undergraduate starting point in engineering. Then I received my Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic. I completed 400 hours of post-graduate Chiropractic Orthopedics through Los Angeles Chiropractic College, and post-graduate Functional Neurological programs including learning disabilities at the Carrick Institute for Neurological Studies. I have followed the field of Functional Medicine for the past 15 years as the basis for diagnosis and treatment.

Mary Claire, my wife of 36 great years, and I have 4 children and 8 grandchildren (so far!). We enjoy traveling and just being together. My hobbies include skiing, kayaking, cycling, and building furniture.
