My mission is to help people be well without the use of drugs or surgery. I like to help people understand that health and healing are a normal and natural part of everyday living.
Personally, I live and practice by a set of values that are the bedrock of my life and business. I treat everyone with honesty and integrity. I never give a person more treatment than they need or mis-represent the value of a treatment. If I can't help you, I'll tell you and, where possible, recommend other professionals I trust. I won't give up on your health. As long as you are working with me, I'll continue to give you my best treatment and support. From me you'll get the same high level of care and attention that I give my own family
I'm a 1979 graduate of Palmer Chiropractic College. Chiropractic was not my first career choice. While serving in the Navy I was a pretty good diesel mechanic. After the Navy I came back to Green River Community College in Washington State where I was studying to become a physical therapist. While there I met and became friends with a chiropractic student at Palmer College who got me excited about how chiropractic would give me even more skills to help people. So I was off to Palmer in Iowa.
Before coming to Crystal Lake in 1992 I practiced in Rock Island, IL and South Beloit, Illinois.
In addition to my chiropractic training, I'm also an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), a Brown Belt in Judo, and I like most sports and exercise.
I have been married since 1980, and have a daughter who has a Special Education degree from University of Illinois. She is also married to a great guy and they have a new baby (my first grandchild). I also have a son, who graduated from Columbia University of Chicago with a degree in animation arts. I am continually amazed at what he can do with computer animation.
Each Tuesday morning at 7:30 you'll find me meeting with the Crystal Lake Chamber Business-2-Business networking group, and I'm active in a number of chamber and community service organizations.
