About Dr. Smith

My chiropractic education began with undergraduate studies at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, after which I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. While at Palmer, I was certified in several chiropractic techniques in addition to those taught as Palmer’s core curriculum. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in February of 1999, as well as being inducted into Pi Tau Delta, the prestigious chiropractic honors society.

After graduating from Palmer, I worked for over three years as an associate doctor with Salvatore Gennero, a prominent chiropractor in Highland, Michigan. There I gained valuable clinical, as well as practical experience. When Dr. Gennero opened a satellite office in Grand Blanc, Michigan, I went there to run that office. I was in Grand Blanc for five years when I decided to start my own practice. My wife, Brenda and I purchased Chiropractic Health Center in February of 2008 and we have been caring for the fine people of this community ever since.

I have been married to my wife Brenda for 20 years and we have three children, ages 12, 13 and 14. Brenda and I enjoy working in our yard and garden, volunteering at our children’s school activities, gourmet cooking and various other artistic endeavors. I find that family life, with all of its varied characteristics, closely parallels a family chiropractic practice. Both have many challenges and rewards and both make our lives happier, healthier and more fulfilling.

Thanks to you, Dr. Smith for making the world a better place by sharing your valuable expertise with the public through social media – we salute you.

As a patient, or someone needing an appointment, one of the greatest frustrations is the wait for an opening, yet openings happen all the time when reservations and appointments are cancelled last minute or businesses have no-shows. The problem is they are usually same-day, and coordinating people into newly opened-up appointment slots is not possible. We know getting appointments when you want can be challenging, and we believe we have found a way around this.

As a doctor or other business owner dependent on appointments or reservations, these no-shows and cancellations are cause for a large source of lost revenue. Click here to learn how much these cancellations cost a solo practitioner per year. Schedgehog can fill these empty slots in your schedule, generating more revenue for your business.

Schedgehog was created by doctors with the busy urbanite and suburbanite in mind. When an appointment opens up, the receptionist (or hostess) easily enters it into Schedgehogs database. If a patient is driving around and realize, “hey, I really need an appointment with the doctor” they go to Schedgehog on their mobile, type in their zip code or the doctors name, and voila! a list of all the appointments available same day within a certain radius of your location appears. Version 2, which will launch in 2 weeks will include a module in which patients can can opt in on an email blast on a particular day of the week that they hope to score an opening based on a cancellation. This frees your receptionist from the duty of keeping a list of people who request a call when an appointment opens.
