Dr. Mark started out as a roofer after graduating from high school, a trade he had learned from his father. Fortunately it was a job and a skill he could use to put his wife through Chiropractic College! While his wife was still in Chiropractic College he was in a bad motorcycle accident. Soon the road scrapes, bruises, and other external injuries were healing nicely but he began experiencing sharp pain with breathing and was steadily developing more pain and anxiety. He had never experienced anything so disabling. He received his very first adjustment from one of Dr. Marla's professors and had relief within minutes. He could take a deep breath again. Dr. Mark continued to support the family with his roofing job. Dr. Mark was soon witnessing how much his wife enjoyed helping patients and recalling his own "miraculous" results with chiropractic care. Dr. Mark decided he would pursue this passion and join his wife in their practice in Modesto.
Dr. Clay was born and raised right here in Modesto and if you haven't guessed by now, is Dr. Mark's son. He has had chiropractic care from the day he was born and has first hand knowledge of the many benefits that chiropractic care has to offer. Dr. Clay has always excelled at sports, primarily baseball. He has always played above his level beginning at 7 years of age playing with 10-year-old division and played 4 years of varsity baseball while attending Downey high school and went on to play 2 years of college baseball at Merced College. He then completed his bachelor of science degree in mathematics at CSU Stanislaus and ultimately transferred to Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward California and graduated in December 2019. He received his California state license to practice chiropractic in February 2020 and has hit the ground running.
