Our New Clinic Is Open!
As my avid blog followers are aware, I am a Baltimore Chiropractor that spends the majority of my clinic time treating patients with headaches, neck pain and back pain in Baltimore. Typically these patients present for care after having been involved in a Baltimore auto accident, but that is certainly not always the case. For this blog post I decided that I want to share a bit of my professional history with everyone.
I began my career as a Chiropractor working for the Neck & Back Clinics in Las Vegas, NV. I worked as an associate chiropractor in that clinic for about three years and I have to say, I really enjoyed my experience there. I got to learn to see thousands of patients and I got to hone my clinical skills at a rate that far exceeded what I would have been able to do on my own in my own clinic. I also got to see “behind the curtain” as to how the clinic was owned and operated and I was intoxicated with it. However, in the three years that I worked there, I found myself not really enjoying the environment of Las Vegas. The weather was too warm, there was no baseball or football team to root for, and all of my family and friends were back on the east coast. I pledged to myself that I would move back to the east coast and find a city with a young and active population, great football, great baseball, and great healthcare for when I get older. I also wanted a community of an under-served hispanic population as I learned to speak Spanish. All across the board it became clear to me quickly that Baltimore would be my new home.
I moved to Baltimore in December of 2011 and quickly began scouting locations for my new clinic. I drove all around the city looking for good locations with great visibility and parking. I stumbled upon our current location at 2001 Eastern Avenue in Fells Point and I knew it was perfect the moment I saw it. I still remember the sign in the window “Will build to suit, call Vic” So I called Vic. I said “Vic, my name is Marc Gulitz. I am trying to open a Chiropractic clinic and I really like your space.” We met shortly thereafter and a deal was struck in less than thirty days. I still remember Vic asking me about my experience. He asked if I had ever owned my own business, or managed people, and I said no. But he believed in me because I believed in myself. Several months later the clinic was constructed and opened and we began serving the Baltimore community in Southeast Baltimore. The beginning was very slow as expected. I had no friends, no referral sources, and no history in the community. At the time there were two employees in the organization, me and a medical biller who has since been discharged. I remember my first patient who walked in the first day and I remember it like it was yesterday.
In the nearly four and a half years that followed my professional life has become a rocket ship. Each month the number of new patients we were able to help grew in the clinic. We just finished our best month ever in terms of new patients and total patient visits and we are pushing the edges on the number of patients that we can comfortably serve in Fells Point…So what better time to open a new clinic?
One of my many dreams has always been to own a series of clinics, not just one. The boss that I used to work for did that and I loved the pride that he had in building his infrastructure. When I asked him why he wanted to open so many clinics his response really resonated with me. He said that as much as he loves being a chiropractor and serving the population, he can help more people by opening more clinics than he can by his hands alone. And that response really stuck with me to the point where I agreed with him. If I can’t get another segment of the population to come to my clinic due to traffic pattern issues in Baltimore, then I owe it to the population of Baltimore to bring my brand of fast, casual, chiropractic care to them.
It is with great pride that I announce the grand opening of my second clinic, Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic in Northwest Baltimore starting tomorrow, Monday February 20, 2017. We are located on the corner of Park Heights Avenue and Fallstaff Road at 6810 Park Heights Avenue, Suite C4, Baltimore, MD 21215. We are going to provide the same great service at a new more accessible secondary location. We will still offer walk-in appointments, evening appointments, and digital x-rays on site. The phone number is the same that you’ve come to know over the years, 443-842-5500. Now we have a hosted phone system that can direct your telephone call to the office of your choice.
So if you are in Northwest Baltimore and are in need of chiropractic care for headaches, neck pain, or back pain, whether or not you have been involved in a Baltimore auto accident, please contact Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic at (443) 842-5500. We would be happy to help you, as always!
Finally, I would like to say thank you to my fiance Kristin, my staff members, referral partners, doctors, lawyers, friends and family that have helped my dream continue to become a reality. There is no way we could have gotten here without everyone’s help and support.
