He has completed advanced studies in Paediatric Chiropractic.

“We love sceptics,” says Brian. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”

Brian is married to Dr Fabiola, who has many roles at the practice. They work tremendously well as a team and their patients really appreciate the personal attention they receive at the practice.

Brian and Fabiola are great proponents of healthy living and when not joyfully caring for their patients, they can often be found exercising at the local gym, jogging in the streets or walking their dog. They understand that health is a lifestyle choice.
