Buffalo – D’Youville College will open a chiropractic clinic in Buffalo to serve the general public as part of its chiropractic education program. The grand opening of the clinic will be Thursday, February 8, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. at 2900 Main Street (Across from Bennett High School) and will be open to treat patients. (Local officials have been invited to the opening ceremony.) It will serve as one of the college’s clinical training sites for chiropractic interns and also provide a variety of clinical health services to the public, according to college officials. “It is the only such chiropractic health center in the City and features full handicap accessibility,” said Dr. Stephen J. Zajac, associate professor and coordinator of clinical services for the chiropractic program at D’Youville. The 6600 square foot clinic houses examination and treatment rooms, a rehabilitation suite, conference room, patient waiting area, x-ray suite, and faculty and administrative offices. There is a lighted parking lot for 35 cars. “ Our certified chiropractic interns will provide services under the direct supervision of our chiropractic faculty who are licensed doctors of chiropractic,” Zajac said. “We will provide consultation, evaluation, diagnosis and digital imaging x-rays, EKG, lab diagnosis, and spirometry along with chiropractic manipulation, physiotherapy, treatment, rehabilitation services and wellness counseling,” he said. “The fees will be affordable and in some cases there will be no cost.” “Office hours will be by appointment and we plan to be open five days a week and eventually on Saturdays,” Zajac said. The clinic has state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment including direct digital radiography that allows a patient’s x-rays to be recorded on a CD for the patient to take to their primary physician or specialist if needed. The college is one of the first standard accredited multi-disciplinary colleges in the State to “mainstream” chiropractic education by offering the Doctor of Chiropractic degree as a part of its curriculum. Introduced in 2004, the seven-year chiropractic program currently enrolls 80 students. D’Youville, a private college based on Buffalo’s West Side, was chartered in 1908 and today has approximately 3000 students.
