Dr. Roger Owens, Chiropractor

Dr. Roger Owens, D.C.

With an uncle and cousins who were chiropractors and an osteopath grandfather, Dr. Owens grew up around natural health disciplines. “It intrigued me that they worked with the body to get people well, relieving all types of sickness without the use of drugs or surgery.” He wanted to help others enjoy their body’s full healing abilities and decided to become a chiropractor. Dr. Owens attended Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri. There, he learned several different adjusting methods, including the Thompson Technique. He often utilizes this method today as a diagnostic tool that indicates precisely where an adjustment is needed. Read more about Dr. Roger Owens… divider-grey

Dr. Ted Tang, D.C.

Dr. Ted Tang, Chiropractor
A lifting injury when he was about 19 sent Dr. Tang in search of a solution. His persistent low back pain didn’t respond to medicine, and that’s when he went to the chiropractor. “A combination of chiropractic and rehabilitation exercises brought me back to health. It was my first experience that showed me the world of alternative medicine, and led me to attend chiropractic school.” Though he was unfamiliar with chiropractic care, Dr. Tang’s father worked as a surgeon, and it piqued his interest early on in health care. He would shadow his father and even observed surgeries when growing up. To this day, Dr. Tang’s passion is learning, and he enjoys working with multidisciplinary practitioners every day at Health Quest Physicians Group that he can gain knowledge from.

Dr. Brandon Lehr

While pursuing his undergraduate education, a lower back injury from playing sand volleyball led Dr. Lehr to pursue chiropractic care. His lower back pain eventually turned into severe migraines while sitting in class and were greatly affecting his ability to focus. His stubborn demeanor let the issue linger for more than 3 weeks before having his first chiropractic adjustment. He was immediately hooked on the idea of natural healing through spinal care! That chiropractic physician eventually became a mentor to Dr. Lehr. He identified his strengths and began to push him to pursue a chiropractic education.
