John is an expert in the management of spinal dysfunctions and orthopedic problems of the extremities. “My 36 years of experience treating patients with musculoskeletal problems has taught me that listening to the patient’s concerns is one of the key elements to providing a successful outcome,” explains John. “I listen actively, so that I understand the problem from the patient’s perspective. Then, using my advanced training and their input, I can accurately assess the extent of the injury and what needs to be done to correct it.”

Nate's most surprising discovery has been how fulfilling it can be to help someone else. He has had experiences where patients will come in with pain that they have had for years, and in one visit he is able to change that pain for the better. The feeling that comes with convincing someone that they don’t have to live in pain and that they can manage their problems without expensive medications or surgeries has been surprisingly rewarding.
