Office of Dr. Gary McLeod, Chiropractor in Three Rivers, MI
Greetings and thank you for visiting our web-site...we hope you find it unusual. The internet has allowed patients to become better educated consumers. To that end, this site contains research articles (pro and con), links to evidence based articles, and Gallup Poll information.
Upon graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1981, I took over a struggling practice. My wife, Dara, (a Speech-Language Pathologist) was not employed at the time so she ran the front desk and we both learned and grew with the practice. Things have worked out splendidly and we could not have made a better choice.
Being a chiropractor is as much fun now as it was then. Patients are unique people with their own set of concerns. The repeating theme, however, is NOT the pain-it is the "I CAN'T" the pain causes, such as: I can't work, I can't care for my children, I can't sleep, I can't sit in the bleachers, I can't walk/golf/exercise/bowl/play cards...you get the idea. The challenge that each patient brings is what keeps our heads in the game, making each day a new adventure.
Technology is the biggest difference between practicing now and in 1981. Computers are used throughout the office from the front desk, to note taking, texting of appointment reminders and portions of the spinal exam (we have not yet taken the plunge to digital x-rays.)
There are two doctors in the office, Dr. Sarah Kirn and myself (Dr. Gary McLeod.) For over thirty years I was the only chiropractor in the office and thought it would always be that way. That is until my wrists went bad in 2011, causing me to rethink things. As a result, an Associate Doctor was added to share the load. When you recieve care in our office, you will be seen by either Dr. Kirn or me, depending on who is available.
We strive to make each appointment convenient, enjoyable and respectful of your time. We look forward to meeting you someday.
