As I sit to write this verse,
I think of the blessing and the curse,
That we may climb this slippery slope,
Between rational thought and offering hope,

To make the care our patients receive,
Based on more than just what we “believe,”
To search for the best approach to care,
And all the decisions doctors/patients share,

The gentle touch, the caring hand,
Coupled with knowledge to clinically expand,
As patients recognize the new approach to health,
The rewards will be measured by more than wealth,

A changing paradigm, refocused on need,
Making patients our interest and eliminate greed,
The world will see chiropractic anew,
And patients will believe in what we say and do,

For up to now a profession torn,
By silly disputes old and worn,
By refocusing on patients’ needs,
Chiropractic will be certain to succeed.

    Hi i read your blog often and thought i would say all the best for the New Year!

  • When the voice on the inside is greater than the opinions on the outside, then you build your destiny!

  • So powerful! Giving of yourself raises you up along with those who’s lives you touch. When you give and expect nothing in return you reach a point where any problems that you may have no longer carry the weight that they once did. And when your load is lighter…so is your spirit!

    Please consider mentoring a chiropractic student or recent graduate. It is a great way to give back to a profession that has given us all so much.
