David Harrison, or 'Doc' as most know him, graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in December of 1985. Upon graduating, he worked with his uncle, Dr. Wellman, where he was a sponge for knowledge. He learned by absorbing not only the ins and outs and do's and don'ts of chiropractic care, but also how to run and manage the business side of the practice. These traits, coupled with his witty, outgoing personality, have made him a stand out Chiropractor for 28 years where he has been named “Best Chiropractor” by GR Magazine multiple times.
Doc is a proud father of three and cherishes the time he spends with his children. He is very involved in the Forest Hills community including coaching 8th grade football at Forest Hills Eastern. Doc is a sports fanatic and a diehard U of M fan, although we are starting to see a little more green and white around the office (they do say with age comes wisdom). He also enjoys spending time at his cottage on Lake Michigan, reading, watching movies, listening to music, being around friends and family, and going for walks with his number one, four legged buddy, Indy.
Robert Harrison graduated cum laude with a degree in Education from Michigan State University in 1976. He returned to school at the Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1982 and graduating magna cum laude in December of 1985. Robert trained under his cousin, Dr. John Wellman, in Lowell for a year. Following that he purchased an existing practice in Byron Center where he ran and operated Harrison Chiropractic Office from 1987 through 2014. He then joined forces with his brother, David at Harrison Chiropractic Center in 2015.
Robert has 4 children and 12 grandchildren whom he loves dearly. His hobbies include golfing, hunting, reading and watching action movies. As a Spartan graduate, Doc bleeds GREEN and enjoys anything MSU. It makes for a great sibling rivalry between him and his brother Dave, who is a Michigan Fan.
