It’s been a while since I’ve shared one of my local loves. I have 3 sitting in queue that I have been looking for the time to post. So, finally I’m sharing this guy.
This is Dr. Dennis Da Ponte from Chiropractic Solutions in Harrisonburg, VA. If you are anything like me, personality counts for a lot when it comes to working with any doctor. There has to be trust, knowledge and respect. Luckily, I just so happen to know this guy personally and I just so happen to know that he is wonderful to work with. He is knowledgeable, easygoing, trust worthily and fun, who doesn’t want to work with someone like that.
I internet stalked Dr. Da Ponte and found out he has quite the resume. I should have known by all the framed paper on his office walls (see photo below lol ;-). Here’s a little bio from his website: http://www.qualitychiro.com
“Dr. Dennis Da Ponte is the Chiropractic Physician at Chiropractic Solutions in Harrisonburg, VA. He is a long-time resident of the Shenandoah Valley, having graduated from Broadway High School in 1996. His professional education was completed at Life University in Marietta, Georgia where he received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology and a Doctorate in Chiropractic on an Elective Advanced Neurology Track. Throughout his education and practice, Dr. Da Ponte has been committed to the advancement of the Chiropractic profession. He served as President of his class in the Doctoral Program and three other University Clubs on Campus, involved with Chiropractic technique and philosophy. His passion for Chiropractic also inspired Dr. Da Ponte to be a regular published author in the University Student Newspaper and earned him two distinguished scholarships from the Life University Alumni Association for his writing. Due to his academic proficiency and clinical excellence, he was awarded an opportunity to complete his Internship with Dr. Richard Rosenkoetter of Atlanta, GA, who was the Director of the Atlanta Sports Chiropractic Clinic charged with the care of the 1996 Atlanta Olympians.
These days, Dr. Da Ponte is happy to be back serving the residents of the Harrisonburg area with the most advanced quality of Chiropractic Care. He enjoys hunting, fishing, playing tennis, golf, working out and jogging. He is also a HUGE Washington Redskins fan!!!!”
