Brian R. Hall, D.C.

Brian was born and raised in Bay City, Michigan. He graduated from John Glenn High School in 2007 as Valedictorian. After high school, he attended the University of Michigan where he graduated with distinction with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a minor in Philosophy. Following his undergraduate degree, Brian moved to Iowa to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic where he graduated as Valedictorian, too.

Brian is an advocate for health and wellness. As a young athlete, Brian sustained numerous concussions and head injuries causing recurring headaches. He wasn’t interested in taking pills every day to mask symptoms or submitting to a life on the couch. His discovery of chiropractic allows him to be virtually headache free while reaping all the other health benefits associated with being well adjusted.

Jerod Bradley, D.C.

Dr. Jerod Bradley uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Bradley takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Bradley will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

Pediatrician

Frederick Ogwara, M.D.

Frederick Ogwara, M.D. is a pediatrician with MidMichigan Physicians Group in Midland, Michigan. He specializes in treating babies and children ages 18 and younger.

Philosophy of Care

“My philosophy is simple: Treat others as you would want to be treated. I have three young children and I want parents to feel confident that I will treat their child as well as I do my own.”

“I try to develop a very cordial relationship with parents, to always be available to them and to earn their trust. I will always put families and patients first.”

Dr. Fred grew up in a community where there was no plan for caring for sick children, and he chose pediatrics because it enables him to be an advocate for their care. “It gives me great satisfaction to watch children mature, from being small and vulnerable to growing well and hitting milestones.”

One of Dr. Fred’s professional interests is working with children with autism. “In the past if a child wasn’t fitting in, you didn’t have a clear path to figure out why. Now we have tools like MCHAT that help identify children at risk and help with intervention. Common interventions for autistic children are one of the greatest innovations in pediatrics. You find out what they are good at and make them chase it, and they come out excellent.”

Dr. Fred’s hobbies include soccer and spending time with his wife Hussaina and his three young daughters. His family has also enjoyed visiting farms in Michigan.

Odoma Achor, M.D.

Odoma Achor, M.D., specializes in pediatrics. He sees patients from birth to age 18.

Dr. Achor practiced family medicine for several years in his native Nigeria and has also taught medical students and pharmacy and medical technicians.

A tragic experience prompted Dr. Achor to study medicine. At age 11, he was in a motor vehicle accident with his mother. Sadly, she passed away. “At the hospital, I was struck by the dedication, passion and effort the people working there put into reviving her and others,” he said. “I thought, ‘What a beautiful life, to be involved in helping people who need help, to make people healthy and whole again.’ Even though I was grieving for my mother, I made up my mind at that point that a career in medicine was what I wanted, and needed, to do with my life. Even though the road was not easy, I have no regrets.”

Philosophy of Care

“I love practicing pediatrics,” Dr. Achor said. “I love the honesty and straightforwardness of kids. They don’t feign anything. What you see is what you get.” He admires his patients’ openness and resilience and considers it an honor to help children get a good start in life. “My goals are to help those who are healthy stay on that path, and to help those who are ill quickly recover.”

Dr. Achor believes in developing good relationships with his young patients as well as with their parents. “I work directly with the children as soon as they are old enough to interact, usually around age six,” he said. “I chat with them and ask questions about their day-to-day life in order to gain a picture of the household and possible health risk factors. I talk to the kids about the importance of healthy eating, exercise and any specific health issues they may have. I have them repeat back to me what we’ve talked about so I know they understand. They are learning lifelong lessons and I want to make sure they learn to make good choices.”

He makes a point of letting children know that they are the patient. “I make the child the center of the visit and make the child aware that they are the one coming in for a health care visit and that they are in charge,” Dr. Achor said. “Eventually, they will grow up and be in charge of their own health and their own health care so I prepare them early.”

Dr. Achor is kind and gentle and he shares his jovial personality with one and all. Patients and parents alike cannot help but return his ever-present smile. “Part of my success is due to the fact that I relate well to kids,” he said. “I have been around children all my life and can identify with them. When they talk, I hear and understand.”

He also relates well to parents and respects their vital role. “They are critical to the health of the child,” Dr. Achor said. “I treat my patients’ parents the same way I treat my siblings and friends, with courtesy and honesty,” he said. “I am always there for my patients and their parents. I don’t have to be on call to be available.”

Dr. Achor and his wife, Situ, have two young sons. Whether they are enjoying a planned outing or just hanging out, he treasures spending time with his family. He and his older son share a passion for soccer.

Dr. Achor enjoys playing chess and is a self-confessed news fanatic.
