For the past eleven years, Dr. Randall Gates, D.C., Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist, has dedicated his life to helping people discover and deactivate the causes of their chronic health conditions.
Earlier in life, Dr. Gates enjoyed athletics and excelled at football and the discus throw. While in college, Dr. Gates even aimed to make the Olympics in the discus throw!
Throughout his life, his passion for understanding the body and human performance has remained unchanged.
Shortly after graduating in 2006 with a B.S. in Biology, Dr. Gates started his doctoral program in Chiropractic. During chiropractic school, he was introduced to Functional Neurology. When he learned about functional neurology, everything clicked! He became fascinated/obsessed with neurology and spent much of his free time studying the brain in-depth including it’s dysregulations and rehabilitation.
In 2009, Dr. Gates graduated from Life Chiropractic College West receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine, as well as being Valedictorian of his class. Simultaneously, he was completing 350 additional credit hours in the field of neurology and in 2010, Dr. Gates passed the rigorous American Chiropractic Neurology Board Examination.
At 28 years old, Dr. Gates attained his designation as a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist- one of five hundred in the world.
Dr. Gates has since completed 250 hours of additional training in Traumatic Brain Injuries, Vestibular Rehabilitation and Movement Disorders. He continues to spend countless hours researching conditions that are not well understood, as well as conditions that are treated primarily through pharmacological medications. When the rest of his team goes home, he is often working well into the night.
Not only is Dr. Gates committed to broadening his knowledge of the human body and how it works and heals, he is personal and very caring. He remembers details about individuals that even those individuals forget. You will rarely find him multitasking, as he believes his patients deserve his full attention. Though his main focus is putting together the pieces of his patient’s health puzzles, it is also healing the patient as a whole. He is often found spending many hours on the phone with both local and distance patients, just checking in to see how they are doing.
In his personal time, Dr. Gates loves to sing karaoke. If he were not a doctor, he would own a Karaoke bar and grill. Never half-hearted at anything, his love for karaoke is equal to his love for healing patients.
