I started as a pre-med major at SUNY Binghamton, but while my classmates went on to medical school, I took a different path. I was the family rebel as a ‘nature girl’ who grew up in Brooklyn in a household with 2 heavy smokers and a freezer filled with an assortment of TV dinners. Chiropractic intrigued me as the thought that I could help people just by using my hands without invasive intervention was very appealing. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic and running a family practice with my husband for 10+ years, I knew that to provide truly comprehensive care, it was time to seek further education. I earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Nutrition and also became a Certified Nutrition Specialist, a credential that required advanced-degree qualifications, a rigorous examination, and substantial nutrition experience. I’ve attended hundreds of hours of advanced continuing education, lectured extensively on many topics, but I’ve learned the most from listening to my patients. They continue to be my best teachers. After twenty five years of practice in the same location, these patients have become a part of our family. There is no other work I can be doing that can have a more profound impact on someone’s life, including my own. I am happy to say that the majority of our practice builds from patient and physician referrals. We have a link you can review that shows many testimonials that we are quite proud of.

Julian and I met when he became my patient during that time, and I am still in awe of his discipline and insatiable quest for knowledge, which he has turned into a career devoted to helping others. He lives it for sure, which my patients find very inspiring. Julian’s system is based on the fact that all of us are different and everyone requires a unique approach, which is why his approach works!
