Dr. Bob Vaughn, DC is Lead chiropractic physician and lifestyle practitioner at HealthSource of Blaine a chiropractic and rehab clinic in Blaine, Minn.
We recently asked Dr. Vaughn to share about his experiences in chiropractic. Here’s what he shared:
Tell us about your practice. What sets you apart from other practitioners in your area?
What sets us apart from other providers in the area is our focus on the cause of peoples’ pain and symptoms not just covering up symptoms. We use a cutting edge mix of chiropractic adjustments, progressive rehab and lifestyle to eliminate pain quickly and effectively. I am also the only Certified Chiropractic Wellness and Lifestyle practitioner in the Twin Cities.
We’d like to talk about a patient success story you’re especially proud of. Tell us about the patient. How did they learn about your practice?
One of my favorite success stories is a mom who learned about my practice through a friend at the local Crossfit box we both work out at. She had headaches every day and thought that it was normal.
I performed a thorough examination, with a consultation, X-rays, as well as a detailed lifestyle assessment.
She no longer has headaches and is able to fully participate with her kids with out pain.
What advice would you give Chiro students today? For instance, looking back at your own career is there anything you would do differently?
Looking back there are many things I would do differently.
1. Get a good accountant right off the bat and pay more attention to the business aspect of running an office
2. Look into return on investment (ROI) more closely with marketing ideas.
3. Never have gotten a business credit card or line of credit. (cash flow practice)
Please talk about any ways you are trying to impact the community you’re a part of:
We give back to the community in many ways. I speak at the local high schools healthy living class. We go out to numerous events to help educate people on the truth about their health and the role they play in it. I have had several interns and student shadows looking into the health care field.
What is the funniest thing, if any, that has happened to you in practice?
The funniest thing that has happened at the office is having a new team member resign over email and then leave her binder at the back door and pretend that she left it with us. (Not funny at the time but funny looking back).
