I was born in Three Rivers, Michigan, and then, at age 7, moved to the province of Ontario, Canada. I was very sickly and underweight, always getting a cold, flu or strep throat. Yet, at the same time, I was very athletic, so I was prone to every sports injury there was! Since my father, uncle and cousin were all medical doctors, so I received the best medical care. However, I continued to get sick and injured, and I couldn’t gain any weight. My parents got divorced about this time, and my mother sent me to a chiropractor. After that, I was hooked! Not only was the chiropractor able to fix every sports injury I got, but I stopped getting sick, and I gained 30 pounds with no dietary change. It was then that I decided to become a chiropractor myself. I went to 4 years of university as a biology major, and then 4 more years at the Canadian chiropractic College. They required an 8 year doctorate because they wanted you to know everything a medical doctor needed to know, as well as everything a chiropractor needed to know. I’ve been in practice in Santa Barbara for 30 years now, and I still love it. I truly look forward to the interaction with patients on a daily basis. Because I believe that getting your spine aligned on a regular basis helps keep one’s immune system functioning optimally, I personally practice what I preach and get adjusted weekly. If you are reading this and have any health concerns, I would encourage you to take advantage of our new patient special to see if I can help. It would be an honor to win your trust and become your doctor. I look forward to meeting you! ~Dr. Bob
