Chiropractic and Massage
My practice is all about the patients I serve. No appointments are necessary for established patients. There is no hard sale for long treatment plans. It is my goal to give the patient what they want and to serve them the best I can.
Additionally, I have training in the diagnosis and treatment of those involved in automobile accident and slip and falls. Please check out the educational area. I am a Qualified Medical Examiner with the state of California which qualifies me to perform medical-legal examination and produce medical-legal reports that rates patients impairment. This helps settle disputes and settle cases faster.
I graduated from the Southern California University of Health Sciences in 1992. Upon graduation I moved to Michigan and practiced there for four years. I came back to the Escondido area and practiced and eventually found myself back in the L. A. area. I owned a practice with three other doctors for a couple years and then decided to strike out on my own.
I bought my current practice in December of 2008, and I have been here ever since.
