Meet The Doctors

Dr. David Gilligan, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Walnut Creek

Dr. David Gilligan has had the awesome and rewarding position of clinic director since 2018, when he began serving Walnut Creek at The Joint Chiropractic’s family of local healthcare providers. It’s exciting work for him.

“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is definitely hearing the loud pops during the adjustments,” he says. “The second-best thing is seeing the big smiles on our patients right after.”

Dr. Gilligan spent his summers in New Jersey while growing up, and it was there that he heard many great things about his uncle, who was a well-known chiropractor.

Dr. Gilligan enjoys spending time with his family, which often includes taking his three children to the Oakland Zoo to see their favorite animals. When he’s not at the zoo or laughing at his wife’s great sense of humor at home, Dr. Gilligan likes to spend time with his family at the beach or golfing with friends.

He was pre-med at Arizona State and got his doctorate of chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Services in Whittier, Calif. He worked previously in Scottsdale, Ariz.

It was in college that Dr. Gilligan realized chiropractic was his calling. “I met two chiropractors at a career day at my undergraduate university,” he says. “I had a great conversation with them and learned that I had the qualities necessary to become a successful chiropractor. In my very first year as a chiropractor, I discovered the power of chiropractic when a patient told me she didn’t get sick with pneumonia for the first time in 10 years. That continued the entire time she was under my care.”

He is proud of the Walnut Creek location and the opportunity it presents to make the experience pleasant for everyone who enters. “We have a large adjusting bay that fits four tables,” he says. “It’s very comfortable and inviting. We’ve also got a table to keep kids occupied while we adjust their parents. It’s been kind of magical; the kids don’t want to leave.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Gilligan says he always has black tea stocked in his cupboard: “It keeps me feeling good.”

If he could bring together any four people from history for his ideal dinner party, Dr. Gilligan would send invitations to chef Emeril Lagasse and entertainers Jim Carrey, Jimmy Fallon, and Bruno Mars.

His wedding day and the births of his children were really exciting days in Dr. Gilligan’s life, but any list of extraordinary experiences would be incomplete, he says, without “storming the football field after ASU beat Nebraska in 1996.”

And if you really want to get a feel for Dr. Gilligan, all you need to know is what he would title his autobiography: “Mr. Enthusiasm,” he says. “I'm pretty enthusiastic.”

Dr. Camille Marzan, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Walnut Creek

Dr. Camille G. Marzan became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s Walnut Creek team of local healthcare providers in 2021 when she began serving residents in the East Bay, where she continues doing the work she finds so rewarding.

“Helping people is my biggest passion,” she says. “I used my hands and body for the passions I had throughout my life, such as kickboxing, taekwondo, wrestling, MMA, and piano. Seeing how hands-on and physical that chiropractic was, there was no question it was for me.

“It’s the next step in medicine. People are looking for preventative care and overall wellness, which is what we can provide when it comes to physical medicine. I have met plenty of patients who are sick of being told to take an anti-inflammatory for two weeks and told to stretch and be more active without any real guidance. Chiropractors can provide that weekly guidance to wellness.”

Dr. Marzan -- rhymes with Tarzan -- is a California girl; she was born in Oakland, grew up in American Canyon, and worked previously in Manhattan Beach, Calif. She enjoys spending time with her young family, which includes her dog Charlie, “my first kid who got me through chiropractic college.”

“Being a chiropractor and a mom, I have developed so much more appreciation for my patients who are pregnant or mothers. Being a chiropractor gave me the knowledge to understand my pregnancy and my daughter’s development, and I am more than willing to share that information with moms, especially first-time moms.”

Cooking has become a hobby, and her kitchen casts a wide net that should provide some relevance to her patients. “I cook for a wide range of diet limitations,” she says. “My household includes my mother with diabetes, my brother who is strictly keto, my husband who has gout, and a brother who has a nut and fish allergy. All of that, plus the food has to be toddler friendly. Pinterest is my new best friend.”

Dr. Marzan has a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Sacramento State and her doctorate of chiropractic from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier.

“I got into chiropractic care because it wasn’t as restricted as other physical medicines,” she says. “I have worked for multiple physical therapy clinics in my undergrad, and they are restricted not only by insurance but also the MD, who gives the prescription for the patients.

Chiropractors have the option to work with an MD or not, with insurance or not, allowing the patient to seek chiropractic care how they want and when they want.”

Dr. Marzan remembers one particularly gratifying moment that made her really appreciate her approach to doctoring. “A patient was referred by an orthopedic surgeon and I was going through the regular history questions and performing the appropriate exams,” she says. “When I ended the treatment, she told me that she appreciated the time I took listening, treating her, and answering her questions and giving her take-home care with a clear plan. She cried, which then made me cry.”

In Case You Didn’t Know

Dr. Marzan says the one thing she always keeps stocked in her kitchen is coffee. “My grandmother would have coffee every morning with her husband before waking her kids,” she says. “My mom told me stories of how her and her very smart sibling would be woken before sunlight and given coffee and bread so they could study before their big tests. My mother started doing the same with me at the tender age of 9. I won’t introduce coffee that early to my daughter, but she will definitely wake up to the smell of it every morning just like I did.”

Given the opportunity to have a coffee klatch with anyone from history, she would include an eclectic group.

  • “Robin Williams seemed to be the definition of yin and yang. He was a hilarious wise man who made people happy and tried to understand happiness. To pick his mind about his journey of that would be nice.”
  • “Not a lot of people know that Bruce Lee created his own martial art of jeet kune do. He was a philosopher -- it was his major at San Francisco State -- about the body and martial arts. I would like any advice he would give a female Asian American who loves the art of fighting.”
  • “I read Michelle Obama’s book and the two passions that stood out to me were her family and helping others. I know how to take care of my community by providing health care, but I wouldn’t mind talking about how to get started going beyond that, along with some motherly advice.”
  • “I would very much like to meet the Dalai Lama. I grew up Catholic and my husband grew up Mormon, but neither of us is practicing. Having a child together, we just want her to be a good person and Tibetan Buddhism seems the route we are gravitating toward. Knowing the Buddhist way, I know he would not try to sell his religion to me but be very willing to educate without any malice toward other religions.”

The greatest thing Dr. Marzan has done is break the mold. As a daughter of immigrant parents, she did the things she had to do to make their move to the states worth it, but she also wanted to distinguish herself from other high achievers. “I wrestled all four years in high school, went to state and nationals,” she says. “My parents didn’t think much of it, just something to put on my college application, but I knew it was more than that when I found myself to be a sponsored fighter at age 20. I told myself, ‘I’m good at this. I understand the body, I can turn it into a career.’ When I got sponsored is when I switched from chemistry/pre-pharmacy to kinesiology.”
