Doctor of Chiropractic David Mason believes that patient education is a crucial part of the health-care process. The licensed chiropractor behind Mason Chiropractic always takes the time to explain the science behind chiropractic care to his patients before beginning any treatment plan. And he blogs about health and wellness topics to help keep the public informed and up-to-date on his industry.

Adam Roberts first delved into traditional Chinese medicine as a means of helping his wife cope with the symptoms of an idiopathic blood disorder.
