Dr. Maurice Cephus | Aloha
Undergraduate work at Patton College...right down the street from Oracle area where Steph Curry handles his business (for the time being).
Graduate work at Palmer West Chiropractic in my hometown of San Jose, CA
I'm passionate about seeing my patients improve their health and quality of living through chiropractic care. I can't put into words how gratifying it is to be apart of their recovery to health and wellness!
Becoming a partner with Centro has given me the freedom to focus all my energy towards my strength... patient care.
I enjoy eating good food...I know, I know everyone likes to eat, but I'm talking about the kind of eating where you grab a pillow and blanket afterwards. Food and spines communicate with me, we have conversations together you understand; a bond! lol
Dr. Richard Hill | McMinnville
Undergraduate degree: BS in Military History with a minor in Systems Engineering from the US Military Academy. DC from Western States Chiropractic College (now University of Western States). Graduate of the Whiplash Biomechanics and Traumatology course from Spine Research Institute of San Diego (2013, 2018).
I'm passionate about understanding individual injury cases to make sure that patients not only get the best care and rehabilitation right now, but also make sure they have all the tools they need to ensure the fullest recovery possible for the future.
Working with Centro allows me to meet so many people who would otherwise live and work in pain and help them recover from their injuries and equip them to remain pain-free. When your not helping people get better, what do you enjoy doing? Riding my motorcycle and target shooting.
Dr. Daniel Hubbell, DC | Gresham
I studied at the University of Western States and received a Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Biology. I also earned a Masters of Writing in publishing. What I learned earlier in my life taught me other important skills. The most important skill I learned as a patient is the true value of being treated and cared for by a chiropractor.
This idea of helping others was already ingrained in my mind and I had a passion for helping others already before becoming a chiropractor. How much greater in the importance of helping someone learn how to become pain-free? It’s priceless.
Centro has given me the opportunity to provide excellent service to a variety of people. It allows me to hold to the basic rule that all people deserve to be treated the same as I would want to be treated. I’m not a Chiropractor all the time but I am a father and husband all the time. When I’m not adjusting then I’m playing with my daughters, hanging out with my wife, and writing my novel.
Dr. Jason Kennedy | Salem
Dr. Kennedy was born and raised in Southern California. His first experience with chiropractic was as a senior in high school when he took a field trip to the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) in Whittier, CA. He was so impressed with the facilities and all of the things a Chiropractor could do, that he signed up for their weekend course to become Certified Chiropractic Assistant. It was during this course that he fell in love with the profession and decided to devote his life to it. Many years later, while in his first years of practice, he felt a call to service and enlisted in the United States Army. After 4 years in the service he decided to further his education and enrolled in the Acupuncture program at his alma mater, now called Southern California University of Health Sciences (LACC). After he graduated with his Masters degree he moved to Oregon to experience all that life in the pacific northwest had to offer. (This was an easy decision as he had been visiting Keizer for about 5 years and just fell in love with the kindness of the people and the natural beauty of the area.)
Dr. Kennedy learned about Centro Chiropractic from his colleague, Alex Alcaraz. He and Alex both attended the same Acupuncture school and after Alex moved to Keizer and started working for Centro as a massage therapist he recommended that Dr. Kennedy meet with the owner. Centro Chiropractic allows Dr. Kennedy to care for his patients with compassion and to provide the kind of high quality health care that people deserve. He is able to give them his full attention and the best experience every single visit. Every day is a reminder that chiropractic care is a wonderful and powerful way of restoring function to peoples bodies and lives. At home Dr. Kennedy has a very neurotic Australian Shepherd named Snickers that loves to go on walks and get a little too excited about other dogs. Dr. Kennedy also loves to hike and just be in nature. He enjoys table top and card games and loves to spend time with friends.
Dr. Eric Kim | Beaverton
University of Western States: Doctor of Chiropractic., Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (C.C.S.P).
Helping people improve on a daily basis with pain management and correcting Biomechanical default. It's very rewarding to see a patient go from not being able to move very well to seeing them back to doing things they enjoy.
Working with Centro has allowed me to serve and touch many people lives who need help with acute and chronic pain. It has helped me to stay on top of my clinical knowledge and always looking for better ways to help people.
I like to live an active lifestyle and enjoy activities such as: snowboarding, weightlifting, hiking, Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and running. I also like to relax and enjoy cup of coffee and dessert.
