Dr. Handt thinks family health is so important that he has established special family care plans to offset the rising costs of modern health care.
A STRONG EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND
“I know that a chiropractor’s education forms the cornerstone of his care. Combined with the inborn healing ability of the body, modern chiropractic is bringing back the personal touch to the health care profession. For this reason, I attended one of the top chiropractic colleges in the nation. I continue my quest to better serve my patients by attending numerous post-graduate seminars, workshops, and trainings. I feel that on-going learning is essential to bringing together the mind, body, and spirit in the healing process.”
