Since before I can remember, my parents began taking my siblings and me to the chiropractor for ear infections (brother) and projectile vomiting (myself). A few visits are all it took for us to be able to avoid taking medications or having tubes placed in our ears. Needless to say, I have been a lifelong chiropractic patient ever since, which is what led me on this journey of becoming a chiropractor myself. I grew up in Rochelle, IL and graduated from Rochelle Township High School in 1995. From there, I attended Kishwaukee Community College for 2 years and then transferred to the University of Illinois and graduated in 1999 with a B.S. of Biology. I pursued my chiropractic aspirations at the fountainhead of chiropractic, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. I attended Palmer from 2000-2004, which is when I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. My wife and I moved to Rockford, IL in 2004 and opened up Cater Chiropractic Clinic, PC on June 1, 2004. My family (wife and 3 kids) are actively involved at and regular attendees of City First Church. What a blessing this journey has been, to be able to utilize the abilities God has given me to expand my opportunities and my impact and help a multitude of people for His glory. I consider it pure joy to be chosen to be a witness to hundreds of changed lives (physical/mental/emotional/social/spiritual) directly in front of me on a day to day basis. My hope is that a multitude of people will make the decision to transform their lives and follow along with us on this journey toward TRUE health.
