I had a career in a more traditional healthcare business in my early 20's. Then I hurt my neck and my wife took me to her Family Chiropractor who fixed me up in no time and I was truly impressed. I was very nervous because the pain was severe and traveled down my arm and I couldn't turn my neck. He made me so comfortable and was reassuring that I would be fine after his recommended treatments. And I Was! This experience changed the course of my life because I chose to go back to school to become a Doctor of Chiropractic and graduated from NYCC in 1986. I came out to the Riverhead area to start my own practice. I arrived with a dollar and a dream and have been here ever since. It was a great move coming to the east end of Long Island. I love the area and the people I have met and been able to help. In 1996, my wife since 1976 joined me in my practice as a Licensed Massage Therapist. She graduated from the New College of Health Professionals. Then we integrated Nutrition into the practice. We feel that we are able to help so many people in so many ways with not only Chiropractic but with Laser Pain Management, Nutrition and Massage. We have a passion for helping people who are interested in staying well in a natural, non-invasive way rather than the common way of drugging and cutting out our problems. If this approach appeals to you give us a call we would love to have a conversation with you to see if we feel we can help you. Tune into 'Health From The Inside Out'. We discuss various topics on health, chiropractic, laser for pain management and nutritional strategies that can be tried at home and when you need to see an expert. We talk about specifics such as thyroid, diabetes, heart heath, weight loss, etc. testimonials, guests may join us from time to time.

Dr. Sears is the most caring and most competent chiropractor I know and I have known many. Regardless of what my problem is I always feel significantly better after he treats me. The reason why is he listens to my concerns and skillfully addresses them. I could never considere going to another chiropractor
