My road to Chiropractic Medicine began when I was 19 and injured my lower back while playing baseball. I tried so many different treatments under the traditional care model, but none truly got to the heart of the problem. At the recommendation of a friend I went to a chiropractor. This was the beginning of my health transformation. After leaving Albany and my baseball career behind, I attended New York Chiropractic College.
After graduation I had the honor of serving at many different facilities; including Village Chiropractic in West Palm Beach, Florida and Park Avenue Chiropractic in Manhattan. I’m also proud to have been awarded the NY Chiropractic Council’s Beacon Award, which is given to Chiropractor of the Year. I’m board certified and a member of the New York Chiropractic College Alumni Association and President of the NY Chiropractic Council in Manhattan. I also enjoy giving back to the community and the world through charitable organizations such as Team Continuum, City Harvest, Gay Mens Health Crisis, and Holy Apostles.
My biggest inspiration and the reason I believe in Chiropractic and the philosophy of helping the body to heal itself continues to be my late mother, Lila Fishel. She passed away from breast cancer in October of 2002. I watched the greatest medical minds in the world be defeated by cancer; it changed my world. Since then I have made a commitment to educate the world about the holistic approach to health and well-being – Chiropractic Medicine.
