Q: Where are you from and what did you do before opening your business?
A: I was born and raised in Rice Lake, Wis. I am a United States Army veteran who served eight years in the Army Medical Corps as an EMT and physical therapy assistant. I recently graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic with both my doctorate in chiropractic and a master's degree in sports science and rehabilitation.
Q: Why did you open your business in this community?
A: My primary focus in the practice is to help as many children and families as I can through chiropractic care. Ahwatukee is a wonderful community full of active families and health conscious individuals; therefore, it seemed like the perfect place for me to start my practice.
Q: How did you get the idea to open your business?
A: Dr. Dionisio has been an amazing mentor in helping me discover how to be a great chiropractor. He has helped me realize my true passion to help children and families through chiropractic care, and I have decided to practice here because of his help and guidance.
Q: What type of merchandise/services do you sell?
A: I offer full chiropractic services, including on-site digital X-ray. In addition, we offer complimentary services such as conjunctive therapies, massage and muscle therapy, nutrition counseling and weekly in-office health workshops on various health and wellness topics.
Q: What does your business have in store for the future?
A: I plan on providing monthly community events at our office such as natural health seminars covering topics like exercise, preventing sports injuries, nutrition, children's health and pregnancy. In addition, I plan on doing monthly spinal screenings and talks for local businesses and participating in community sports events.
Q: Anything else you want the community to know about you or your business?
A: I believe people are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health. I hope the Ahwatukee community will utilize my services and find better health and a higher quality of living.
