Celebrating 30 Years in Practice!
I graduated chiropractic school 30 years ago on April 18th. Wow! What a ride! When I graduated, the internet hadn’t yet revolutionized medical education and practice management. Our appointment books were actually paper! We used land-line telephones, photocopiers and fax machines. We used x-ray machines that took images on film and had to be run through processors. My how things have changed!
Over the course of my career, I’ve owned and operated practices on Nantucket Island (15 years), and Asheville, North Carolina (3 years). My wife, Tina, and I took ownership of Healing Frontiers in 2010 and have been happily practicing here for the last 12 years.
I never could have guessed how rewarding and fulfilling a career in chiropractic would be! In these amazing places I’ve been fortunate enough to live we’ve treated many thousands of patients and seen too many miracles to mention. I’ve been blessed to be part of a profession that truly makes a profound impact for good in our communities.
By far, the most rewarding part of my career is the time I’ve spent in Wolfeboro. This is a great place to live and work. I love walking down the street and being greeted by this patient or that with a smile or a joke and a happy word. It’s a great way to make a living knowing that you spend your days helping your friends and neighbors experience less pain and greater health and happiness.
