Meet the Doctor:
Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, Dr. Zach participated in numerous sports. With his athletic background came injuries. He firmly believes that chiropractic care makes a tremendous impact on athletic performance as well as general health. His chiropractic wheels began turning when he was only 15, while watching his sister get chiropractic care, which allowed her to continue her athletic career. He was fortunate enough to have had this monumental moment take place in a Gonstead practitioners office.
He continued to pursue both his athletic as well as academic career at Baldwin-Wallace College located in Berea, Ohio. There he began becoming very serious about his studies and started developing skills that allow him to be the physician that he is today. Upon graduation from Baldwin-Wallace he went on to attend Logan College of Chiropractic in Chesterfield, Missouri. Here he became the president of the Gonstead Club. He was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to mentor under Dr. Jeff Lawlor and Dr. Richard Cranwell. Prior to his final semester of chiropractic school, Dr. Zach had a life-changing opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic to provide chiropractic care to underserved areas. During this 10-day mission trip, Dr. Zach made lifelong memories as well as friends, whom he continues to stay in touch with to this day. During his final semester of chiropractic school, Dr. Zach was fortunate enough to do his internship with Dr. Craig Ditzler. While performing his internship, Dr. Ditzler took Dr. Zach under his wing and provided a great foundation for his development in becoming a chiropractor here in San Diego. Also while in school, Dr. Zach attended numerous Gonstead Seminars with the Gonstead Methodology Institute (GMI). When Dr. Zach is outside of the office, he can be found playing sports, exploring San Diego, and relaxing with great company of friends and family.
My name is Wella and I am so thrilled to be a part of Gonstead Family Chiropractic! I have been a chiropractic assistant for 20 years and still going strong! I look forward to seeing all of our wonderful patients and their families each day, supporting Dr. Zach and helping the office run smoothly and efficiently. When I’m not at Gonstead Family Chiropractic, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two amazing children. We enjoy camping, hiking, going to the movies and getting together with great friends. I look forward to welcoming you to Gonstead Family Chiropractic and serving you and your family for years to come. See you soon!
