After graduating from RMIT University he worked in various Chiropractic Clinics around Melbourne before settling in Point Cook. “Each year,” continues Brian, “I enjoy attending various seminars and workshops to keep up with the latest in research and developments in the chiropractic profession.”

There is a strong sense of community in our practice. As a local resident of Point Cook himself of over 15 years, he has seen the area blossom and has enjoyed being a source of quality natural health care over the years.

He has special interest in Sports Chiropractic as well as Paediatric Chiropractic and takes great joy in assisting these groups. He has attained an advanced training in Sports Chiropractic gaining his International Chiropractic Sports Science Diploma which allows him to treat at international sporting events such as the Olympic Games and World Games. 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 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.
