Meet Dr. Brian Parkhurst DC

In the next six months, he totally recovered from his injuries due to the chiropractic care he received.

She always wanted to be a doctor and at the age of 12, after being bucked off a horse, she had her first encounter with a chiropractor. Because of the treatment she received - and his personalized attention - she made the decision to be a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Dr. Karla's interests focus on women's health concerns such as balancing hormones, neurotransmitters and proper nutrition. She also helps patients with many conditions such as healthy aging, managing fatigue, fibromyalgia, hormone imbalances and weight management. This interest led her to further her education by obtaining her diplomate through the American Board of Academy of Anti-Aging Health Practitioners.
