My own personal chiropractic experience without a doubt altered the course of my life.

Choosing Chiropractic as a career initially started after a spring high school football scrimmage. The lower back injury I sustained was not responding to conventional medical treatment. After much persuasion from friends, I was taken to see a chiropractor. Wow! The relief I got from my back and leg pain was immediate. With about a month of care and a few follow up treatments I was able to again play and finish out my final season of football in South Florida. I could not help but be grateful for this doctors’ incredible knowledge, caring and skills. The next six years I worked at a plant nursery and construction company. Although the money was good I found myself becoming less and less enamored with starting my own business of loading trucks, pulling weeds and pushing loads of dirt. My heart and temperamental back were a constant reminder that this was not the right path. After all, I have a natural aptitude for helping people and I have always been a physical person. Becoming a chiropractor seemed like a perfect fit for me. I was now finally headed in the direction my life needed to go.

In 1989 my education odyssey began with premed studies at the University of Miami and culminated in the fall of 1996 at Life Chiropractic College in Georgia with a B.S. Nutrition degree and Doctorate in Chiropractic. The education I received was as interesting and challenging as the human body is complex. The intensive core science classes of human anatomy, neurology and physiology were in respects comparable and often exceeded the curriculum at most medical schools. At present time, the annual continuing education courses, seminars and workshops pertaining to chiropractic and general public health issues are very much the norm for myself and my colleagues. My education left me with a greater confidence in my skills and knowledge as a physician to care for the many people I see each day who suffer from acute or chronic pains and conditions.

Our practice is quite diverse in that we care for people of all ages and circumstances. It is always a surprise to anyone unfamiliar with chiropractic that we can treat safely and effectively persons that are elderly, the infirmed, infants, post surgical spinal patients as well as an array of common ailments. Since every patient is unique, a variety of adjusting techniques are made available as well as the different protocols utilized to help stabilize patients to include and not limited to physiotherapies ,massage therapy, nutritional counseling, orthotics and computerized gait scan analysis. My most important consideration in caring for a patient is to always do what is best for that patient. This means assess the patient’s problems accurately, use available diagnostics and specialist referrals as clinically necessary, get the patient well as soon as possible and educate them about their current and future health. This clinic’s reputation for exceptional chiropractic care has been solidly built over a 25 year span from the trusting relationships formed with the community and local medical facilities that include hospitals, orthopedists, neurosurgeons and general practitioners. Rest assured the doctors, superior staff and therapists at Citrus Chiropractic Group are collectively focused on providing the very best in personal patient care and service. We truly are committed to “teaming up to keep you in the game of life!”

I was born November 1963 in the Philippines. My family lived in various South East Asian countries until the age of 10. We then moved from Vietnam to the Unites States. Parts of my childhood were spent in Michigan, Tennessee and South Florida. We lived in small towns and large cities as well as on farms growing vegetables and raising chickens and cattle. I feel quite fortunate to have experienced many diverse people, cultures and lifestyles. My parents and brother mean the world to me. I lost my Dad in 2001 and this year our 17 year old Jack Russell Terrier, Wiley . l miss them both dearly. My mom is living in “Gator Nation” country and is an incredible person, cook and gardener. My brother and his wife are Assistant Attorney Generals in West Virginia with two beautiful children. In 1989 I met a beautiful music major and amazing photographer named Rebecca . She has since that day been the Love of my Life. My wife has been my life support and my best friend through the years. We both love the peaceful natural beauty of the outdoors with activities including yard work, hiking, camping, travel or just sitting on our lakeside pier listening to the songs of the sand hill cranes and watching other wildlife. I cherish times spent with family and close friends. A few other things I enjoy are watching sports, hunting , fishing, music ,reading and I am a Pittsburgh Steeler fanatic. I am a passionate and active Life member of a conservation group dedicated to obtaining and preserving our diminishing North American wilderness areas benefiting the future of both wildlife and people.

I take a daily dose of multivitamins, flax seed oil and glucosamine sulfate. Despite any activity level, I love to eat and enjoy all types of foods from around the world. Therefore, it is important that I monitor my weight closely. In order to stay healthy, working and enjoying life. I get regular adjustments, proper rest and regular stretching exercises keep me productive and enjoying life. I feel strongly that one must be very pro active in order to achieve the best health possible. What you put into it, is definitely what you will get out it! However there will be times when common sense dictates and if absolutely necessary, that you will need more aggressive measures such as medications, antibiotics or surgeries.
