Dr. Gary Dillon
I was told surgery was the only option!
Well, at first, my wife asked me not to write this. We had a big discussion about it. Finally, she understood what I was trying to do, and actually helped me write this letter to you. Here's the thing. In my office, most of the people that come in to see me tell me they've "tried everything."They've had "every" test, wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they've been subjected to medications that have only served to temporarily mask symptoms. That's not what most people are looking for. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That's what I'm going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me…
Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell you my story.
"Back then I was a flight medic for the U.S. army, but I developed a painful lower back condition known as 'sciatica'. In my case it came on suddenly. The pain in my legs was so intense that I couldn't clinch my toes, climb stairs, and sometimes I couldn't even get out of bed. I was afraid that I'd lose my job if the disability continued. After considering surgery (that was the only option, according to the surgeon) I decided against it.
But, there's more…
A friend of mine convinces me to give their doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then 'adjusts' my spine. The adjustment doesn't hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and I can use my legs again. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? It works so well for me, and I'm so impressed with the other 'miracles' I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that's how it happened!"
After leaving the army where I was a flight medic and orthopedic specialist I attended University of Louisville and Morehead State University where I majored in biology with a minor in chemistry. Upon completing my undergraduate training I attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis. There I was immersed in the chiropractic curriculum for four years. One of the many things that surprised me was that my education was longer than traditional medical school, with more than triple the education in anatomy and physiology that medical doctors obtain. After graduation I worked as an associate for a long practicing chiropractor for two years. After gaining valuable experience in patient treatment I opened Dillon Chiropractic in November of 2002.
Dillon Chiropractic's philosophy revolves around the premise of Total Health. Not only do we deal with low back and neck pain but with chronically ill patients who wish to regain their health and their lives. Dillon Chiropractic was founded for the restoration of health to those for whom medical treatment or ordinary chiropractic adjustment and care have proved to be insufficient.
I have been married to my beautiful wife Gretchen since May of 1996. We have three wonderful children; Rachel, Jennifer, and Mathew. I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids when I am away from the practice and am also an avid golfer.
I truly believe in what I do because of the results in my own life and the patients that I treat. My personal health was declining until I started following the programs that I use for my patients. I receive chiropractic care monthly, work out four days per week, and eat an organic diet. Poor diet, overuse of medication, and lack of knowledge about chiropractic care is killing our nation. We use more medication and have more chronic sickness than any other country in the world. There is an answer if you are willing to find it.
Thanks for visiting our site. If you are tired of living on more and more medication, and want to improve your quality of life, or you just want to fix that disc bulge without surgery; give us a call. I look forward to serving you.
Healthgrades does not collect malpractice information for Kentucky.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct.You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
Healthgrades reports non-disciplinary board action history from for the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
