As a practicingChiropractor for more than 40 years, I have always strived to provide a remedy for patients in pain or suffering. After owning and operating my own clinic for more than 35 years, I just needed a break. I soon became bored and wanted to once again treat patients. I applied for a job as the clinic director for a large facility that treated peripheral neuropathy exclusively. My time there was insightful to the treatment and management of such a horrible disease. By following their established treatment plan, most patients responded very favorable, but what about the ones that did not. I have always prided myself in treating difficult and non-responsive patients, so my natural instincts were to try and improve on what was already working. A "Systems Approach" is my method of evaluation when dealing with chronic conditions. In other words, the skeletal system when altered from injuries or posture, soon developes into a musculature problem. Muscle tension progresses to the point of depriving muscles of normal blood flow. Then the Circulatory System becomes involved. Poor diet and excessive habits soon become a complicated Digestive System Disorder. Acupuncture Meridians require a free expression of of the flow of "CHI", your bodies way of balancing energy, again hugely important, the Acupuncture Meridian System becomes imbalanced. Therefore, a "SYSTEMS APPROACH' in my analysis completed many parts of the puzzle.
The result of choosing health care as a profession came about as a result of a childhood illness. At seven years old, I was subjected to the polio vaccine. Shortly afterwards, I became symptomatic and was diagnosed with spinal meningitis. I made a full recover, after a two week stay in the hospital. This was a very scary ordeal for a child to endure, but made a significant impact on my life. Maturing into a sense of how I would choose a lifetime career, I explored the different types of health careers available.
I have worked extra hard for the knowledge, and talent, for people to give their trust in me, as their doctor. I still possess that desire, and will strive to prove myself to you.

Why It Matters: Dr. Motley's Board Certifications
Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

What is medical malpractice?
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 my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
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.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?
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.
For which states does Healthgrades collect malpractice history?
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.
0 Board Actions
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.

Please refer to my website NeuropathyFix, for videoed testimonials of patients that experienced relief immediately. These patients were asked to comment just minutes after AURICULOTHERAPY was implemented. Maybe you can be the next success story.
