Dr. Lily Friedman joined the The Joint Chiropractic family of healthcare providers in 2019 when she joined the staff at the Weston location. A graduate of Yeshiva University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and an associate degree in Judaic studies, she earned her doctorate of chiropractic from University of Bridgeport Chiropractic College.
You can call her Dr. Lily if you’d like.
“The thing I most enjoy about chiropractic is having a front-row eat to the amazing journey that my patients embark on as they go from acute care to pain-free wellness care,” she says. “It’s gratifying and humbling.
“I also enjoy meeting different people from a variety of backgrounds who enter the office for treatment. I love getting to know who they are, where they came from, and what their story is. I’ve met some of the most remarkable people throughout the years, each and every one unique in their own way and always adding something of value to educate and enlighten.”
A product of Toronto, Canada, Dr. Lily worked previously in New York City and Hollywood, Fla.
Her teen son and daughter are the loves of her life, Dr. Lily does have a 17-year-old Lhasa apso named Zoe who preceded them both. “I attribute Zoe’s longevity to the manual therapy I have been doing on her since she was a puppy,” she says.
In her spare time, Dr. Lily enjoys travel, sports, reading, music, painting, and spin class.
“I fell into chiropractic medicine by chance and knew that this was my calling from the first moment I entered graduate school,” she says. “The body is an amazing machine and I have nothing but awe and respect for its natural ability to heal itself.”
She loves working at the Weston location. “My favorite part of working at The Joint Weston has to be the people,” Dr. Lily says. “From the supporting staff with our own dynamic relationship to those who walk in our door every day, it’s a blessing.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
When it comes to must-haves in the kitchen, Dr. Lily is fond of a root vegetable. “My go-to snack that is always in the fridge are cut-up radishes,” she says. The crunch and taste is always satisfactory.”
If she could invite celebrity guests to her ideal dinner party, she would include a tennis great tennis great, a music legend John Lennon, a movie star, and a late night TV host.
“Rafael Nadal can teach me some tennis moves, and John Lennon is the greatest songwriter of all time,” Dr. Lily says. “I’d have George Clooney there to lighten it up, and Stephen Colbert to be funny and moderate the conversation.”
As for the coolest thing she has ever done, Dr. Lily set a bar that’s more healthy than it is high. “I do cook things every day,” she says.
Dr. Gabriel Martinez joined The Joint Chiropractic’s family of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began working at the Fort Lauderdale and Miami Gardens Square clinic locations. A graduate of University of Puerto Rico with a bachelor’s degree in biology, he earned his doctorate of chiropractic at Life University.
Dr. Gabe -- you can also call him Dr. Martinez -- says the best thing about being in the chiropractic field is the simplicity of what he does: “I love being able to help people with just my hands, to be able to provide the care that they need and desire without the use of medication or surgery.”
He worked in the Georgia cities of Atlanta and Marietta prior to North Miami, Kendall, and Plantation.
A product of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Dr. Gabe is married to another chiropractor, and in his spare time enjoys running and drone photography.
Dr. Gabe was influenced to become a chiropractor when he was a young boy.
“My mother has scoliosis and goes to chiropractors regularly. Growing up, I went with her frequently and saw up close the advantages and benefits of what chiropractic can do for your health and the impact it can have on the quality of life,” he says. “”I always liked helping people, and being a chiropractor looked like a great career to help people like my mother get pain relief in a safe and consistent way.”
He is happy to be working in South Florida. “I love living close to the beach, the people are generally active and highly energetic in their daily lives,” he says.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Gabe says the one thing he always keeps in his refrigerator is orange juice: It’s not a Florida morning without a hearty cup of OJ. If he could fashion the dinner party of his dreams and bring together any four people from history, Dr. Gabe could enjoy quite the conversation. “I would include inventor Nikola Tesla because he was one of the most brilliant minds in history and I would like to know how he saw the world,” Dr. Gabe says. “My other choices would be President Abraham Lincoln because I believe he was a special leader who was able to unify people with different views; BJ Palmer, because he was the founder of chiropractic; and the Dalai Lama to learn more about living a healthy life.”
According to Dr. Gabe, the coolest thing he has ever done was scuba diving in Mexico. “Being able to spend an hour-and-a-half underwater and seeing all kinds of wildlife was eye-opening,” he says. “When you see the water from above, you don’t realize how full of life it is.”
