Dr. Ross' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ross "Developing a back problem at age 14 from a trampoline accident I was helped by a chiropractor. This chiropractor urged me to consider chiropractic as a profession. In my senior year at Mercer University, Macon, GA, I applied and was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa. It was there that my counselor suggested I go straight thru Palmer without taking summer vacation. I followed his advice, along with hundreds of my classmates, and finished a 4 year program in three years. At the same time of studying for my doctorate, I pursued a second Bachelor of Science degree, graduating cum laud in 1975. Since that time I have been practicing full time with licenses in Georgia and Tennessee. When I began my practice in Rossville, GA there were 7 chiropractors from Fort Oglethorpe, Ga to Cleveland, TN. Now there are hundreds. During this career in chiropractic I have always tried to provide the services required by each patient including referral to other specialties when necessary. To this day I appreciate being able to restore pain free mobility to my patients so they can have a better quality of life."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ross "Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy; Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope. Because I choose to care for the patient with the disease, not the disease. Because I wish to assist rather than intrude; to free rather than control. Because I seek to correct the cause, not its effect. Because I know doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself. Because I have been called to serve others. Because I know it is right."
