The Team

Dr. David Dolberg

As a full time practicing Doctor of Chiropractic since 1982, I have been witness to many changes and the evolution of health care delivery. Personally, I have enjoyed the natural approach of Chiropractic as a drugless healing art. My patients have always thrived through the process of learning how the body can heal itself through lifestyle changes, exercise, and healthy eating.

When my wife, Joan, brought her skillful counseling techniques to our facility in Springfield, although a separate practice, I saw an interesting transformation develop. We have many common patients who benefit, both mind and body, from the Chiropractic and Counseling services we offer. In 2014, Joan brought to my attention this really terrific weight loss protocol, offered through Ideal Protein.

Weight issues have a significant impact on both mind and body. Sadly our abundant culture suffers from numerous health issues directly related to a vast selection of unhealthy food we consume. What a great idea, what a great fit. Now, with Ideal Protein, we offer one more way for our patients to regain control of their health and enjoy life as they should.

Having struggled with obesity my entire life I decided to give Ideal Protein a try at the turn of the New Year in 2020. I was skeptical, sure that this was just another diet fad that might work well in the beginning but would lead to more weight gain in the end. As one who not only lost 85 pounds in 7 months and kept it off, but has also gained vibrant health and stability in the ways that I respond to life through food, I have become a great advocate for the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol. Not only does Ideal Protein supply a method and tools that work predictably and repeatedly to achieve safe weight loss, it also educates you in how to maintain all that you achieve in your health and weight loss journey. I consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to coach others in this Protocol and to encourage them on their own journeys to better health and lifestyle transformation that endures!
