Dear Patients:


Following much thought and prayers, I have decided that the last date that I will be treating patients will be Friday, September 15, 2023. It is both with some sadness but mostly a grateful joyful spirit that I will be retiring after 35 years in the chiropractic and nutritional services. I feel completed!

I started my practice with three patients and a five-year rental lease. I am humbled by my tenacity and dreams to succeed. I am more humbled by your belief in my skills to help you feel better in your body.

In my time in practice, I was driven to learn as much as I could in state-of-the-art skills and technologies in chiropractic, soft tissue and nutritional techniques to help as many people as possible. I learned that there are many ways to the mountain top and that we have choices to do so.

Were it possible, I would tell each and every one of you face-to-face how fortunate and honored I have been to help you feel better in your body. With your help and inspiration, I have grown as a doctor and a human being by this special experience of being a part of a healing community. Each of you, beautiful souls have helped me create a healing environment so that you could be more productive and functional. You have been a gift to me and I will always be grateful for and cherish our shared memories.

Most patients have told me the same thing over the years: that this area of pain is my “bad shoulder, or back.” There are no bad body parts, just the right amount of TLC necessary to get you on your life path once more to teach you how to care for your beautiful bodies. Always remember to love your body.

In everything I have advised you, I have been reminded to look in the mirror and take better care of my body just as much as I have taught you how to do the same. Sometimes it has been a challenge and at the same time you inspired me to practice what I preached.

With much gratitude and an opportunity to give to others, much has been given to me by each of you.

Remember, those among us who are standing survived a pandemic!

I invite you to make an appointment with me to say goodbye face-to-face and give you a heartfelt grateful hug. I appreciate our paths crossing.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Dr. Karen Kartch, DC
