Dr. Andrew Slater or "Dr. Drew" holds a BS in Exercise Science from Central Michigan University and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic. Dr. Drew has practice chiropractic care in Seattle, Washington and most recently Portugal. When Dr. Drew and his wife decided to return to the United States they had read about The Joint concept and immediately knew this was what the business opportunity for them as this was the way they had practiced chiropractic care in Portugal. Dr. Drew says, "We we not able to take x-rays and there was no insurance coverage available so we were able to have a low-stress practice and offer great care at an affordable price." He goes on, "We had so much less to deal with from an administrative perspective that our patients got all of our attention, this is exactly what The Joint concept offers." After looking at several areas all over the country they found out Dr. Rob was retiring and selling his practice they jumped at the opportunity to operate a practice in such a beautiful place. He looks forward to helping and healing the community of Colorado Springs.

The Joint is located at 3272 Centennial Blvd. For additional information please go to thejoint.com or contact the clinic at 719.268.1424.
