Who knew that 30 something years ago, a take your daughter to work day (even before there was an "official" one) would have such an impact on so many people? I just adored my father (and I still do), and I couldn't wait to help him in his office when he first opened up. I was his helper for the day. I got to schedule patients, answer the phone, and greet patients as they walked in. I will never forget seeing patients walk in into my dad's office bent over and walk out standing up straight with a big smile on their face.
Back then, seeing what my dad did, using no drugs, no surgery; he didn’t cut anyone open, no shaking or baking; and yet, people were getting healthier, just by my dad’s own two hands, I knew, that someday, I too would do the same thing. I too, would become a chiropractor. In fact, I am the 7th chiropractor in my family, along with my brother and four cousins. I have one daughter, Jennifer, who is a senior in college this year. What family would be complete with out a pet? We got our dog, Angel, as a puppy 17 years ago for Christmas (that is the only reason she is named Angel). You would think she would mellow with age. Oh well.
I have been too. Let me explain. When I was younger, we had a dog named Spunky who lived up to his name. He was always getting into trouble. One of his favorite things to do was to escape our back yard and go visit the cute toy poodle down the street. One day, I went riding my bike and wasn't paying attention and left the back gate open. Well, Spunky escaped to go visit his girlfriend and was tragically hit by a car and died. Spunky died because I left the back gate open. To say that I was devastated was an understatement. I still feel guilty about letting Spunky down. As you may recall, I grew up knowing that I wanted to be a chiropractor. I always had this thing in the back of my mind that the day I became a chiropractor I made a pledge NEVER to let anyone down again. Now, I don't know what prior experience, if any, you have had with Chiropractic. One thing I am not okay with is attempting to live up to your previous expectations. You will be disappointed in me and I will be frustrated with you. This simply does not work with me in my office. I will educate you every step of the way so you will be in the best position to make the best decision for you and your family. Hi. I am Dr. Joanne Buettner. If you want someone you can trust who won't let you down, call our office to see if chiropractic can help you live the life you were meant to... to give up the "Yeah buts" for the "What if I too could be healthy". This is our way of introducing ourselves and creating a relationship with you and your family. You are not in this alone. I won't let you down. I keep my promises. Call today!
