After more than 15 years practicing in downtown Minneapolis I have decided to close Downtown Chiropractic Clinic. Friday February 10th, 2022, will be the final day I treat patients downtown. Following that date I will be practicing full time at Chiropractic Specialists in Carver MN.
I have immensely enjoyed my time practicing downtown and the many relationships I have formed over the past 15+ years. While I am excited for the new opportunity, I will miss the downtown community and all of you I have gotten to know over the years. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your trust in me over the years.
Below I have tried to answer the questions I imagine many will have, including information on my new practice location and information on other chiropractors in the downtown area.
Why are you closing?
I am at a point in my career where I would like to spend more time focusing on patient care and less time dealing with business management, admin etc. Unfortunately, with the environment downtown post pandemic, I was unable to find a situation here that would allow for this. However, I was able to find a great opportunity at a clinic near my home that is a great fit for me in terms of practice style, will allow me to make this shift to more of a strictly treating doctor, with the added bonus of eliminating my daily half hour plus daily commute . Ultimately this is a better fit for me where I am both personally and professionally.
Where are you going?
Of course I would love to see as many of you as possible at the new location. I will have your files and will be able to continue your care at the new location if you choose to continue care with me there.
Below is the information for the clinic I will be moving to. I will start seeing patients part time in January and as stated above will be practicing there full time after February 11th 2023.

Do you have any referrals for chiropractic care downtown?
I understand that for most of you this new location will not be practical. Below is the information for some of my colleagues in the downtown area.
