Our Doctors

Ross Batiste, DC

Dr. Ross Batiste

A graduate of Marshall University, Dr. Ross studied Psychology and Exercise Physiology. He earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic (Florida campus) in 2014. He is also a Certified Medical Examiner (CME) which allows him to perform Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, one of the few chiropractors who has passed the rigorous certification examination.

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.

Dr. Ross has studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and is certified in Acupuncture. He has received a Fascial Movement Taping I & II certification through Rock Tape in 2014, allowing him to stabilize, support, and enhance the musculoskeletal aspect of the human body.

When Dr. Ross isn’t in the office, he enjoys cooking with his wife Amy and playing with his two kids, Savannah and Joe.

Dr. Jake at Back N' Balance

Dr. Jake Schalles

Dr. Jake studied Kinesiology at Temple University and worked as an Exercise Physiologist at a physical therapy clinic in Philadelphia prior to chiropractic school. He graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in December 2023. During his time at Palmer, he worked as a Clinical Rehab Assistant helping with exercise rehabilitation in the clinic.

Dr. Jake was introduced to chiropractic care in early high school when it helped him recover from a neck injury. This sparked an interest in holistic forms of health care to treat conditions without unnecessary drugs or surgical intervention.

With a patient-centered approach to care, Dr. Jake adjusts the full spine using Palmer Package adjusting as well as utilizing the various services and modalities in the office to provide comprehensive treatment to help the people in the Dunedin area get out of pain and return to doing the things they love!

When he’s not at the office, Dr. Jake enjoys weightlifting, riding his bike, and going to the beach. 

Pat Sinclair, DC

Dr. Patricia Snair
