Where did you grow up? How long have you lived in the area? Tell us about your family. I was born in New Jersey and attended college in Iowa where I met my wife, Charlene. We lived and practiced chiropractic in Iowa until 2002 when I was asked to lead the academic program of a chiropractic college in South Carolina.
What is unique about your practice (what sets you apart from the rest)? Our practice provides the highest quality family care. We’ve listed our values on the office website:
Precise — The highest quality in chiropractic means a precise vertebral subluxation correction service.
Gentle — Chiropractic done right is far more exacting than most people think. The exact adjustment on the specific vertebra, at the right point on that vertebra, and at the right time can be a life-changing experience.
Meticulous — Monitoring a person’s spine properly to know just when, where, and how much to adjust is important. We use state-of-the-art equipment to be able to know when our adjustments are successful.
Affordable — We are committed to making the best of chiropractic available to the community. You are free to choose between a regular and a cooperative fee system depending upon which is best for you.
No insurance required — our practice has a no financial barriers policy. To keep quality high and fees affordable, we do not go under contract with insurance companies. People wishing to use their insurance are able to do so, and they are reimbursed directly by their insurance company.
Open — Your health care should be a comforting experience. Our family adjusting suite is a reflection of our approach. No closed doors or intimidating, uncomfortable cubicles.
Given your business expertise and the nature of what you do, what advice (whether general or specific) can you offer to the residents? I think the single most important step is to teach your children the value of good function and performance by starting them on chiropractic care early in life.
What else we should know about you, your family, or your practice? Myron and his wife Charlene reside in Rock Hill. They have two children, Arianna who resides in Knoxville, Tennessee and Jarred, residing near Easley, South Carolina.
