September 2016 – Brian Leaf

My first chiropractic miracle occurred when I was in 9th grade. My parents took me to a chiropractor following a football injury and I was amazed at how quickly it got me back in the game. I remember telling my mother on the way home from my first visit, “that is what I want to do when I grow up.

I am proud to be a graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. In fact, I didn’t know how prestigious this honor would be until entering practice and seeing how other doctors provided care. The clinical skills that were instilled into us at Palmer allow us to take on even the most challenging cases with a degree of confidence that boosts our success rates. Much credit goes to Dr. Valero, my physical diagnosis professor. She was so hard on us that most students prayed that they’d get someone else for that class. A group of us actually requested her and even though she could be a bear at times. I know in my heart that by the grace of God she made me the doctor that I am today.
