My home life is with my wife Kathy and our pets. I truly enjoy the outdoors, backpacking, hiking, bicycling, snowshoeing, all season camping, canoeing, scuba diving, fishing and hunting. Other interests include woodworking, blacksmith/welding, motorcycling, gardening, cooking,  the arts, reading, and just about all types of music!


Dr. Mandel was able to alleviate both upper and lower back pain. In particular, he was successful in getting rid of a large knot near my left shoulder. I had been to several other chiropractors and physical therepists, and none of these professionals were able to help me. Dr. Mandel ranks far above any chiropractor I have ever had. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of chiropractic care and I do so without any reservation.
