Dr. Payne obtained his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Logan University in St. Louis, Missouri in 1992. He has worked on the medical side assisting in hundreds of surgeries, used to practice acupuncture, and chose the chiropractic industry above all.
Payne has obtained advanced certifications through Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) and this is what he bases AVANT's practice around. He is a certified Scolicare Provider. Having adjusted patients for 29-years, he still comes into the clinic with the biggest smile and enough enthusiasm for all.
"We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”
