To be quite honest I don’t know where I would be if I didn’t have chiropractic in my life. 7 years ago I had a huge near death experience. I had a severe allergic reaction to a medication that was given to me which placed me in a coma for over two weeks. Doctors were baffled by what happened to me and did not give my family and friends much hope for me to live. Thankfully God did wake me up but with that came challenges. I was in a position where I had no balance or coordination, I wasn’t able to walk on my own, my short term memory was affected, I had trouble with my speech, tingling and numbness in my hands and last but not least complications with my vision. From here my new home became Health South Rehabilitation Center. I would be here for another 2 weeks to work on these handicaps I developed. All the things that we can easily take for granted, were taken away from me! I was 26 years old at the time and I literally had to learn how to live again! As soon as I got out of rehab, I began to receive regular chiropractic adjustments and with just one adjustment the tingling and numbness in my hands subsided! Continuing with these adjustments gave me back my speech, vision, balance and coordination and my memory was restored. After my Doctors told me I would never be able to practice as a Chiropractor again nor would I fully recover I found myself running in the foothills of Albuquerque in less than a month and I started practicing within two months after being released from rehab.
Chiropractic works and you can rest assured because it gave me my life back, allowing my God given Innate Intelligence to work optimally by removing the nerve interference in my body! This developed my passion for Chiropractic even more so.
Chiropractic care not only helps with all the symptoms that I had but it helps with so much more, it has no boundaries. Chiropractic is designed to work with your body. The adjustments remove any interference to your Central Nervous System that can alter your body’s ability to heal from the inside out. With a strong sense of faith in God and chiropractic, I will give patients hope, from hope we have happiness, and through happiness we have wellness, which is a way of life we should all have and live.
Surrounding yourself with individuals who have the same mission when it comes to optimal health makes the journey that much more enjoyable. I have a beautiful fiancé that has worked her way through nursing school and shares the same drive as me! We have been a part of each others lives for over 15 years and
we plan on being instruments of God’s healing. Today we are both fortunate to serve the Albuquerque community. Being able to serve patients of all ages and play a fundamental role in helping them reach their health potential has been such a blessing! I would love to be your chiropractor!

Health Quest Chiropractic may seem like just another business to many, but to me this is my family. I started chiropractic care in late August as a last resort to extreme pain in my lower back and leg. I was nervous about what to expect and if this could work and be the answer I have been searching for. Entering the office, I immediately felt as if I had stumbled upon a gem of a place. The staff was incredibly helpful but I also felt a sense of care that I have never experienced before, especially at a chiropractic office. Flash forward to four months later, and not only has my quality of life changed immensely for the better but I now get the amazing opportunity to impact our practice members in the way I was impacted.
Health Quest means more to me than just my place of employment and where I get regular adjustments for my scoliosis that was diagnosed. It means I will always have amazing support around me who are gentle, experienced, educational, and caring. At Health Quest we truly care about the wellness of our practice members and their families. We look forward to enriching practice members lives through chiropractic care as we are enriched through the moments we share with each and every one of our members on a daily basis. I am no longer just existing, I am living a beautiful life and I owe it to Dr. Adrian, Summer and Lindsay who woke me and my body up for the most exciting adventure I will ever take called, “My life.”
I started receiving Chiropractic care when I was younger for an accident I had been in. I never knew that Chiropractic could be much more than a place to go when you are injured. Since working for Health Quest, I have learned that it is more of a Wellness practice, like a gym, to maintain your body in proper alignment so that it may function the way that it is intended too. I believe a more natural approach is the best approach.
I have suffered from headaches and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Since starting Chiropractic care, and maintaining care through regular adjustments, I have seen and felt a difference in my body. I no longer suffer with headaches. I have since been able to lose the weight from my hypothyroid condition. I have been able to fight common ailments such as allergies and colds during the cold and allergy seasons naturally than with the use of chronic medicine that only masked my symptoms. I feel my body is working at its best when I know that everything is communicating and functioning the way that it should.
Health Quest has changed my perception on health care. I look forward to going into work each day and hearing and seeing results in patients from when they first started care. It is absolutely amazing how Chiropractic can change your life!
