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. Having adjusted patients for 25-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.”
Heike is our Administrative Office Manager. She's an integral part of AVANT, handling daily operations, behind-the-scenes work, and projects around the clinic. You may notice her German efficiency and subtle Southern accent – always with a smile.
"Don't sweat the small stuff.”
