Dr. Plese has been under the guidance of an award winning practitioner and 36-year veteran in chiropractic, Dr. John Priester. The combination of new and proven techniques at Priester Chiropractic Clinic provides comprehensive pain relief and quality health care to all patients.

Dr. Plese has continued his education by completing over 150 hours in a post-doctorate program in the field of functional neurology.

Staying current with advances made in the treatment of all conditions and dedication to education to provide the best care is the cornerstone on which Dr. Plese and the Priester Chiropractic Clinic is built.

“My patients deserve individualized care and sometimes require a referral to another specialist (i.e., Primary Care Physician (PCP), Radiologist, Orthopedic Surgeon or Neurosurgeon). Having gained respect and trust with the medical community has allowed me the ability to easily refer my patients to these practitioners if needed.”
