Dr. Kevin Priestley, D.C.
“My entire family is involved with helping people.”
A Family Tradition of Serving Others
As a teenager, Doctor Priestley spent his summers working as a lifeguard on Long Island. His father worked for the New York City police department for 45 years, and his younger sister is also a police officer. The other two sisters in his family and his mother are registered nurses. Dr. Priestley realized early on that he wanted to help people and decided to major in premed.
Everything changed when a friend invited him to a lecture presented by a chiropractor. The information given was so simple but made perfect sense to Dr. Priestley. ‘’How can someone get healthy by taking drugs? The idea that you could restore people’s health without medicine by adjusting their spine was a revelation to me.” It was that evening he decided to become a chiropractor, and he continues to be thankful to the friend who took him to that lecture.
