Dear Patients,

It is with gratitude for a wonderful career and fond memories of all of you that I announce my retirement as of October 31, 2022. The wear and tear on my shoulder after 33 years as a chiropractor and 43 years as a physical therapist is sadly forcing me to retire from the profession that I have so greatly enjoyed.

It has truly been an honor and a privilege to work with you toward your health goals over the years. Getting to know all of you has greatly enriched my life. I’m struck daily by the kind hearts of the many people whom I have been able to call my patients since I opened my practice on 24th Street in Noe Valley in 1990.

It is of utmost importance to me that during this time of transition that I offer you support in finding a new chiropractic home. I have gathered a list of chiropractors to choose from that provide quality care. There are many experienced chiropractors in San Francisco, so this is certainly not a comprehensive list of qualified providers.

I will be available by phone, text and email until November 1st, 2022, and after this date, my email address will be the best method through which to contact me.

I look forward to hiking the trails of the Marin Headlands, spending time with my family, and discovering new pursuits.

I wish you all the best in the years to come, and very much hope that we connect down the road.

To your health,
