Meet the Team

 

My name is Dr. Ryan N. Russell. As you’ll read, the story of how I came to be a Doctor of Chiropractic was no mistake. My journey from discomfort, pain and fear to wellness, relief and happiness is a very personal story.

For a long time I’ve known that I wanted to be in the world of health and wellness. I have always enjoyed helping others and learned how fulfilling that can be through observing my father as he restored people’s health in his medical practice. I envisioned bringing something to the community that no one else had or was able to offer when it came their overall health and well being. For the last three years I have been patiently building my brand and the vision I have had in my mind for many years!

With the help of my father, Dr. Gary Russell M.D. and the combined efforts of Domenic Iacovone that dream is starting to flourish into something that is going to influence and change the world of healthcare as we know it! I am proud to say that after many years of sacrifice that my dream has become a reality. We have built an integrative company that is brining the most cutting edge health care protocols and we are able to truly give the community the care and treatment that it needs to optimize their health!
