I believe that the healing process starts with patients feeling comfortable with their doctor. That is why I would like to share a little bit about myself.
The most important thing to know is that I am a person who gets excited about helping people get healthy, and keeping them motivated to create an active and vibrant lifestyle.
The decision to become a Chiropractor was therefore a natural extension of who I am. I have always been very active and interested in biology and health. I spent my youth raising and training horses, often tending to their injuries and health needs.
I was first introduced to Chiropractic by my sister in 1992, who at the time was studying to become a Chiropractor herself. I graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1998 and then did a 3-year residency in Radiology at Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier, California. After practicing in Connecticut for a few years, we decided to make the move back West to raise our son here in Central Oregon.
I believe that doctors are at their best when we care for the patient and not merely treat their symptoms. If you are looking for a physician who is willing to listen to your concerns and help you design a care program to restore your health without drugs or surgery, you will feel right at home at Miner Chiropractic.
Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you in the near future!
