Meet the Team

  • Kathleen

    Kathleen has been a part of our practice since 2005. She is our office manager, but most of us refer to her as ' Office Goddess'.  She is the bright cheery face that greets you at our front desk. She takes pride in her job and feels blessed to be a part of a practice that truly helps others live a healthier, more fulfilling life. After you have met her you'll realize how easy it was for her to beat out the other 20 applicants that had applied for the same job. She is a caring person and makes everyone feel welcome. It was her caring ways that led her to be a surrogate for cancer survivors, not just once but five times. She'll be the one holding a crying baby, assisting our handicapped patients, or lending an ear. There isn't anything she wouldn't do for our patients. She is one of the biggest reasons our practice is so special. 

    She has a strong belief in the benefits of chiropractic care. So much so that husband Mike, her daughter Ana, and her sons Michael, Nick, and Anthony are all patients at Chiropractic First.
    Kathleen resides in New Market with her family including her dogs, Ember and Bella (which she adopted from Tails of Hope) and her cats  Nittny and Tigger). But you're most likely to find her on a ballfield  cheering on her sons as they prepare to enter their sophomore year, because not only is she a wonderful part of Chiropractic First , she is a devoted mother.

  • Diane

    Diane joined our happy family in 2006 and if you hear her voice or need to take a double take, it's because she's Kathleen's sister. Diane has two jobs that keep her busy, one as a Vet Tech and here as our front office assistant.  It's her love of people and animals that makes her such a caring person. She has even gone out of her way to go to our patients houses to take care of their pets.  There is nothing she wouldn't do to help a person or animal in need. Diane has four beautiful children, Billy, Joey, Victoria, and Meredith. Diane and Nick, live in Frederick where they live with their posse of pets, four dogs, two cats, two birds, fishes, and horses.  It's like Noah's Ark.  So as you can see, Diane has a big heart and will make you feel right at home, here at Chiropractic First. Diane's rich and warm spirit makes all of our patients feel at home!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Andrew is wonderful to work with! He truly cares about the patients he works with and caring for the issues they have. He doesn’t just try to get you in and out- he really gets to know you. Kathleen Lucian who works at the front desk is also wonderful to work with when setting up appointments and rescheduling!"

  • "Dr Andrew is the best. Knowledgeable and has helped me so much. Had so much pain in my lower back I couldn’t handle anyone touching it and now I’m able to handle my husband & kids touching my back with tears coming to my eyes. Thank you so much."

  • Smart Shoulders

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
