The new paradigm of healthcare delivery
I am a dual doctorate (M.D. & D.C.) Chiropractic Physician whom has had a lifelong passion of providing a unique type of healthcare service which will differentiate me from any other type healthcare provider. I firmly believe that my distinctive approach in the delivery of healthcare is conforming towards the "gravitational pull" regarding the current trending of the healthcare community.

My approach is to perform a detailed investigation of every anatomical and physiological system of the human body. By approaching healthcare in this manner, this allows me the opportunity to perform a detailed investigation of these systems to determine which one's requires prioritizing.

Personally, I feel that this is the ideal method to practice healthcare delivery as it addresses the three components of any effective strategy. Practical, Logical and Universal. "Practical" because it essentially corrects the root cause of the problem. When this is performed across the board with every system and the abnormalities are then corrected accordingly, then the desired result is attained consistently. "Logical" because providing healthcare in these terms makes perfect sense. When I venture out to brainstorm and exchange thoughts and ideas with physician's from the different disciplines, together, we then formulate common algorithms of the more common disorders. These algorithms mainly focus on the presentation, assessment, investigation, treatment and long term management of these disorders.

And last, but not least, this paradigm must be "Universal" in that it must be be functionally applicable to each and every physician and all of their patients across the board irrespective of all the diverse variables. We understand that when each pathological process is carefully assessed and analyzed, this allows us determine what steps can be undertaken to achieve the "process of normalization" of these physiological processes and ultimately achieving the state of perfect equilibrium.
My passion is to provide the finest quality, patient-centered and cost effective Chiropractic healthcare to the surrounding communities of the Santa Maria and beyond. To have the opportunity to collaborate with my fellow healthcare professionals within the Pierce Chiropractic is truly an honor and a blessing. Our clinic is located in the city of Santa Clara, California. Our office not only provide chiropractic care, but infuses the many other parts of "holistic healing" by the incorporation of sports injury, functional medicine, spinal rehabilitation, rehabilitative exercises, nutritional counseling and therapeutic massage . I am also a firm believer that true healing can never be accomplished unless the physical, psychological and the spiritual components of the human psyche has properly been addressed.

Our healthcare team not only specializes in musculoskeletal related disorders, but the many disorders and diseases of the human body outside the realm of "chiropractic-related disorders. The primary focus of our practice is to provide our patients with a better quality of life without the intervention or need to be dependent on strictly medications or "Traditional Medicine". This is accomplished through our continuing education, detailed knowledge of our respective profession and a keen understanding of the structural/functional components of the human body and how these various components correlate with one another.

The paradigm of our practice has always been to stay with in the realm of Chiropractic and having a dual MD/DC background, I believe that has given the opportunity to approach each and everyone of my patients with a more comprehensive understanding of the diagnosis, treatment and management of the chiropractic related disorder versus the more traditional medical cases.
