Dr. Charlie

Hello, I hope you're enjoying the website. I'd like to share a little about myself with you here. I grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and have been involved in sports for as long as I can remember. I graduated from Archbishop Ryan High School in 1998 where I played both lacrosse and football. After High School, I went to Lock Haven University where I played lacrosse and graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Health Science in 2002. I had initially enrolled at LHU as an athletic training major, but when a friend changed their major from athletic training to pre-med for chiropractic and explained why, it was enough to make me reconsider my major too.

After learning more about the profession and its history, I was quickly drawn to the combination of the natural principles that chiropractic is based on and the active role that many chiropractic patients took in their care. I shared a strong belief in the wellness paradigm that focuses on of utilizing chiropractic care when you are healthy and without any outward pain or symptoms to maintain your health rather than the sickness paradigm, that unfortunately is what many of us have grown up with, in the belief that you only see the doctor when you're sick. I think chiropractic has it right when it comes to the saying 'It's easier to stay well than to get well'.

After LHU, I went on to New York Chiropractic College. After three and a half years of an extensive cirriculum that included chiropractic technique, anatomy, neurology, pathology, radiology, nutrition, clinical assessment, rehabilitation and a fourteen month internship, I received my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree and graduated with honors.

I absolutely love what I do! There is nothing quite like the feeling I get every day from seeing my patients get well, recover from their injuries and helping them learn about the role that chiropractic can play in their pursuit of optimal health. From adults, teenagers and seniors to children and infants, blue collar and white collar workers to athletes and everyone in between, I truly believe that chiropractic can benefit anyone and everyone!

Outside the office, I'm a very family-oriented person and enjoy spending my free time with family and friends. I'm always more than willing to help both my patients and anyone else interested in learning more about chiropractic and how it can benefit them. If you would like to contact me, please feel free to visit the office or call or email me. Have a great day!
