“I worked on weekends in the family pharmacy from the time I was eight years old until I turned eighteen in 1968.
In the 1960’s the paradigm for pharmacy changed from the intimate neighborhood setting to a more corporate type of interaction.
Off to pharmacy school I went until I was forced to withdraw after three years due to an acute low back disc problem.
At twenty-one, after a myelogram and hospital stay, my only medical alternative was a spinal fusion surgery.
Even though my parents were in the medical world, we chose a chiropractic route. My condition abated and I was cleared to return to my studies.
As I had all the prerequisites, in light of my own personal experience, as well as the opportunities that the chiropractic profession had to offer, I was accepted to and decided to attend Chiropractic College near Chicago.
I worked diligently from 1972-77, matriculating and participating as a lab assistant. I earned a six month research fellowship in Geneva, Switzerland, at the Institute for the Study of the Statics and Dynamics of the human body.
I studied walking as a dynamic reflection of posture. I was fortunate to find a mentor in Dr. George Goodheart, DC who provided direction and offered me a job upon graduation. After a few years of practicing in Detroit, I sought a location to live which I concluded would provide a balanced lifestyle for work and recreation.
Meeting my wife and deciding to move to Asheville were two of the most important decisions of our lives.
We have been quite successful at creating a nourishing personal and professional life in the mountains of western North Carolina.
It amazed me have that I have been in practice for over forty years.”
