Care Philosophy

As a chiropractic physician and acupuncturist, I want my patients to feel comfortable with the plan of care that is presented to them. To do this I explain what the diagnosis is and the treatment plan that is suggested. I also let them know how long I anticipate before they will achieve the goal they are looking for with the treatments. I feel it is important all the patients questions are answered before care begins.

Biography

Born in Slayton, MN, Dr. Van Dam grew up in a small farming community in southwestern Minnesota. Dr. Van Dam earned a B.S. in Biology from South Dakota State University.

He loved the people and his practice in Illinois but the need to be closer to family in the region prompted a change. An opportunity for another doctor to manage his practice in Illinois became available to allow Dr. Van Dam to relocate to Fargo. He started Van Dam Chiropractic in July 2005.

    Dr. Van Dam says...

    As a chiropractic and acupuncture physician for the past 19 years I have had the opportunity to treat a variety of health conditions for families. From ear infections in newborns and toddlers to breathing problems and stomach conditions in adults. I would be glad to have the opportunity to sit down and discuss your condition to see how my care can help you.
