At Intero Chiropractic, we do things differently.
DR. JERRY HSIEH

Prior to a series of life-changing experiences and beginning his chiropractic career, Dr. Hsieh worked a successful career on Wall Street, where he was a top performing associate at J.P. Morgan and completed the prestigious Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program. He received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York, NY where he received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering and Management Systems and a Minor in Economics.

DR. ADAM MARTINEZ
Dr. Adam Martinez received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Parker University in Dallas, Texas. Originally from Amarillo, Texas where he was heavily involved with sports his entire life, thus, graduating with a bachelor's degree in Sport and Exercise Science.
Dr. Adam's first experiences with chiropractic prior to attending college were underwhelming, to say the least. The combination of his sports background, past experiences and overall lack of chiropractic knowledge led him to believe that he would go into chiropractic school with a focus on exercise and rehab. However, he saw the amazing physiological healing abilities we all possess and how Chiropractic can affect these processes. So, he wanted to find the "Gold Standard" of the 250+ chiropractic techniques when entering graduate school and quickly focused in on the Gonstead System dues to its scientific and systematic approach to health.
So far, Dr. Adam has accumulated 200+ hours of Gonstead Techniques outside of the curriculum, has been certified in Upper, Lower and Advanced Gonstead Extremities, 20+ hours of Gonstead Pediatric Care and 400+ hours with Chiropractic mentors ranging from 17-36 years of experience in the Gonstead System.
Spending time with his wife and 2 young children is Dr. Adam's favorite past time (along with watching the Philadelphia Eagles).
DR. ANTHONY LAI
Dr. Anthony Lai received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA with a full scholarship.
Though he was born in Canada, Dr. Anthony spent his early childhood in Hong Kong. He then went on to study abroad in the United Kingdom and graduated from Durham University with a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences. The human physiology has always fascinated Dr. Anthony, but it was not until discovering chiropractic that he truly understood what the innate body is capable of.
Dr. Anthony has been practicing the Gonstead system for over 3 years. He has accumulated over 200 additional hours in Neuro-Structural chiropractic. He loves to give back to the community and has been on volunteer mission trips to serve underprivileged patients all over the world!
Aside from spending time with his family and friends, Dr. Anthony loves to travel and explore the world whenever he has the opportunity. He believes that food is the gateway to culture. When you come to the office, ask him where he's been!
DR. CHRISTOPHER CUCULLU
Dr. Chris Cucullu received his doctor ochiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA and graduated Magna Cum Laude. He was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska where he got to experience the outdoors and being involved in many sports growing up. Playing competitive hockey his whole life took a toll on his body, even at a young age, and led him to seek conventional palliative care from his family doctor, but led to no avail. It wasn’t until he got under consistent chiropractic care that he experienced true correction of the problem and was able to break through to a new level of health.
Chris went on to play collegiate hockey at Iowa State University where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology and Health and a Minor in Business, knowing the whole time he was going to pursue chiropractic as his purpose for serving people. Dr. Chris loves watching hockey (his favorite team is the Pittsburgh Penguins!), going fishing, camping, golfing, reading and spending quality time with his friends and loved ones.
After passing an extracurricular written and practical exam to assess his proficiency, Dr. Chris became an intern in this specific Neuro-Structural technique system, known as the Gonstead system, while attending chiropractic school. This meant he earned the privilege to help teach his fellow students this amazing system which the other doctors at Intero Chiropractic specialize in. Dr. Chris has dedicated himself to over 200 hours in Neuro-Structural chiropractic outside of the regular school curriculum and continues to strive to do more to better himself for his patients!
