After witnessing chiropractic techniques benefit his sciatica-ridden mother, his injured brother, and his own damaged back, Rob Wheeler felt so inspired that he became a chiropractor himself. Now with more than 16 years of experience under his belt, he helps patients overcome the same sort of pains he and his relatives once dealt with using a combination of traditional chiropractic adjustments that align the spine and state-of-the-art laser treatments.
He uses the specially calibrated lasers to harmlessly bypass the skin and treat damaged tissue, reduce inflammation, and entertain subcutaneous kitties. He can also apply these high-tech beam emitters in tandem with massage therapy to trigger the body’s self-healing properties.

Dr. A. E. Miller’s path to Summit Dental was anything but direct. After manning a solo practice for 10 years, Dr. Miller sold it and moved to Hana, Maui, where he administered nonprofit dental services.

He and his experienced staff dedicate themselves to helping patients gain self-confidence with a smile-makeover approach, which seeks to optimize the natural beauty of each patient’s smile.
