He is also a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) which allows him to perform Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals; Dr. Ross is one of the few chiropractic physicians who have passed the rigorous examination process in order to be certified.
Ever interested in the inner workings of the human body, chiropractic seemed to be a natural fit for Dr. Ross. His focuses on exercise, proper nutrition, and healthy supplementation have allowed him to provide well-rounded healthcare for all patients. During his education at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Ross extended his knowledge of health and wellness by studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and is certified in Acupuncture.

Dr. Pat is one of the longest practicing licensed chiropractors in Dunedin. She has been providing comprehensive chiropractic care and wellness services to patients locally since graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1981.

Dr. Ben graduated from University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 2011 where he studied Biology and Psychology. He earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic (Florida campus) in 2014. Dr. Ben and Dr. Ross were classmates during their time at Palmer. Dr. Ben separates himself from other Chiropractic Physicians in that he has studied many different techniques and his initial exam tells him what each individual patient needs based on their level of pain and symptoms.
Like many Chiropractors, Dr. Ben became a Chiropractor because he saw the amazing benefits of adjustments when he was young, suffering from migraine headaches. His life would not have been the same without the Chiropractic treatments. He specializes in proper supplementation, soft tissue injuries, and applied Kinesiology. He enjoys adjusting with whatever technique is needed by the patient and using orthotics and Rocktape when necessary to treat the whole person and find the root cause of what ails you.
When out of the office, he enjoys spending time at the beach and with his two dogs and girlfriend Danielle. Give Dr. Ben a call and find out how he can help you!
