Dr. Bruce Rippee, DC
Dr. Bruce Rippee purchased an existing practice in Gladstone, Missouri in 1992 and immediately renamed it to Chiropractic Life Center. After working as a solo practitioner for 8 years, Dr. Bruce hired Dr. Chris McClenney as an associate in the year 2000 and Dr. Chris has been a wonderful friend and valued colleague since then. Three years later, Dr. Jim Wyllie joined his Liberty, Missouri practice with Dr. Bruce's practice which eventually created the five doctor clinic that they have today. Dr. Bruce and his colleagues have been honored to be part of practice-based research, perennial participants in corporate health fairs, and sought-after motivational and educational public speakers. He is married to the love of his life, Valerie Rippee, and they have three active and awesome children. He is an avid martial artist and loves to scuba, and plays golf, disc golf, tennis and anything that his wife and children want to do outside.
