Dr.Alexander (AJ) Pacis
'I've always known that I wanted to be a healthcare practitioner. My introduction to Chiropractic was after a horrible lower back sports injury that sidelined me for three weeks straight. Chiropractic not only naturally helped me move pain-free but also helped with a number of health issues I was dealing with at the time. Most importantly, I understood that my poor health was taking me away from things that were most important to me, such as school, sports and quality time with my family and friends. Being under the influence of Chiropractic to improve my health and quality of life, I wanted to help bring that same amazing experience to those around me and decided to study to become a Chiropractor. I absolutely love what I do, and look forward to the positive changes that I get to see my patients go through and the goals we get to achieve through the power of Chiropractic adjustments.'
