Personal

"I was born and raised in Southeastern Minnesota. A personal experience with chiropractic as a child fostered a desire to pursue my dream to become a chiropractor. After graduation from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1996, I was fortunate to return to my hometown to join Northgate Chiropractic Clinic. My wife Shelly and I now reside in Byron with our daughter Raquel and son Nash."

An Educator

"I pride myself on educating the public regarding the many benefits of chiropractic care. Increased knowledge often leads to less apprehension when it comes to discovering chiropractic care. I am often found leading workshops and presentations for the public at our clinic, the health club, or other local businesses. I feel combining chiropractic education with treatment leads to increased compliance and, therefore, faster, more complete results. It is this formula that contributes to Northgate Chiropractic Clinic's success."

Personal

"I have lived in Minnesota my whole life , spending my childhood in Isanti, MN where I enjoyed fishing, hunting and was active in football, motocross and track and field. My first experience with Chiropractic was after a car accident in High School. I suffered whiplash from a head-on collision and Chiropractic treatment helped greatly through the recovery process. After experiencing such a positive impact, it was then I decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic. I studied at Minnesota State University, Mankato where I completed my Pre- Chiropractic schooling. In 2015 I graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University and received a warm welcome at Northgate Chiropractic Clinic from Dr. Buchanan. I currently utilize manual adjusting techniques such as Diversified, Activator, Gonstead and Motion Palpation. I have been trained in instrument soft tissue mobilization, and flexion distraction techniques. I am fascinated with the natural healing capabilities of the human body and am excited to begin my journey meeting new patients and helping the Rochester community live healthier lives through Chiropractic care." I currently live in Pine Island. In my spare time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, being outdoors along with spending time with my wife, two boys and our dog Kiah.

I was raised in Spring Grove, MN so Rochester is very familiar to me because it’s one of the closest “big cities” to my hometown. I became fascinated with chiropractic at a young age and made it my goal to go to chiropractic school and become a chiropractor. I attended the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse where I completed my undergraduate requirements. After that I moved to Minneapolis to attend Northwestern Health Sciences University and will be graduating in November. While in chiropractic school I also completed training to become certified in chiropractic acupuncture and I am excited to begin treating patients with that certification after graduation. I utilize manual adjusting techniques including diversified, activator, SOT and Thompson/drop. I currently live in Rochester with my fiancé, Derrek and our cat, Arlo. Some of my hobbies include crafting in my art room and endless wedding projects!
