Meet Dr. Brad Weiss of Performance Health Center in Metrowest

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Brad Weiss.

Ever since idolizing his childhood pediatrician, Dr. Weiss always envisioned himself as a doctor helping others feel better. He was first introduced to chiropractic health care at age eight.

As an active kid and athlete, Dr. Weiss used chiropractic care growing up to stay healthy and recover quickly from injuries.

Dr. Weiss chose to become a chiropractic physician and began his solo practice in Williston, Vermont, in 1984. He committed himself to helping his patients obtain optimum health, while defending their right to access chiropractic as a health care choice. He rose up the ranks of the Vermont Chiropractic Association, serving as President from 1995 until 1999. He was named Vermont Chiropractor of the Year in 1997. As his practice and reputation grew, Dr. Weiss continued to expand his treatment skills and became certified in Active Release Techniques (ART).

In 2002, Dr. Weiss and his family moved to Massachusetts where he took over the leadership of Chiropractic Healthcare in Natick. The practice became energized with Dr. Weiss’ enthusiasm and grew as he attracted a patient base of active families, athletes and musicians.

Performance Health Center is the epiphany of Dr. Weiss’ prior experiences. It is a premier multidisciplinary outpatient facility which meets the health care needs of all those who want to perform better in their lives.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Starting a chiropractic practice was not easy, especially 33 years ago. I graduated, started a practice and then have to learn how to attract patients. When I first started, chiropractic care was usually the last resort for people in pain. The good news is that today chiropractic care is usually the first resort for people looking for a solution for pain-relief and optimum function.

This is my second practice and growing a patient base was much easier than the first time. Over the last 15 years, I have become a much better communicator and have developed excellent relationships with the medical community. As a result, many of my patients are referred medical doctors who understand what I do and are interested in what is best for their patients.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are specialists in getting people out of pain and on with their lives without drugs or surgery. We encourage and motivate our patients to stay healthy with wellness care which keeps them feeling good, maintains their mobility and finds and corrects health problems before they become symptomatic. This attention slows the damaging effects of aging such as arthritis. We offer the best chiropractic care available, we tell it like it is, and we treat our patients as if they were family. We use a multidisciplinary approach and help our patient achieve their health care goals as quickly as possible.

We do it one person at a time. We provide a clean and inviting environment. We ask the right questions and perform a thorough functional exam. Then we explain what is wrong and what it will take to get them where they want to be. If our recommended action plan is accepted, we proceed with treatment which is mostly hands-on.

Our staff is very warm, caring and welcoming. Everyone is greeted with a smile. We discuss treatment options with our patients and make sure they understand what is wrong and what we have to offer. If we cannot help someone we tell them that and we refer them appropriately. We accept insurance assignment and help patients in financial need with payment plans. We let patients try ergonomic supplies before they buy them.

Our patients come first and we believe that attitude is well-recognized by our growing patient base.

What were you like growing up?
I grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y. in the days when after school you would play outside until you got called in for dinner. I was always active and curious. I participated in sports from archery to skiing. When my old brother would wonder out loud if it was possible to jump off the garage roof, I would volunteer to find out. This often necessitated a visit to the ER for stitches or a few extra visits to our family chiropractor! These experiences made me interested in a career in health care.
