Dr. Stephen Gillis
“After being misdiagnosed with arthritis at age 17, and told to stop exercising, I decided to try a chiropractor as a ‘last resort.’ After becoming pain-free after eight treatments, I started to think ‘maybe there is something to all this.'”
After graduating from UNBSJ with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1990, Dr. Gillis started to look more into chiropractic, and after three years of research, decided upon the Canadian memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto, based upon its reputation for academic and research excellence.
During his four years at CMCC, he took courses including biochemistry, a primary emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the CMCC Public Clinic.
After graduating in 1997, Dr. Gillis returned to the Saint John area to establish his practice. “I always wanted to help people the way I was helped with chiropractic".
