Dr. Teri Stockwell
As Faculty Clinician at the Center for Health and Optimum Performance (C-HOP), Dr. Teri Stockwell instructs and mentors chiropractic students in their first experience with outpatients – through supervision of their patient care, adjustment delivery, electronic record keeping and many other facets of clinical experience. Stockwell notes that she is also the lead instructor of a technique that she proudly speaks of – Chiropractic Bio-Physics (CBP) – and says that it is the most researched technique in Chiropractic.
For many years, Prita Patel knew that she wanted to work in health care but couldn’t quite seem to land on a specialty. At the same time, she knew that she did not want to attend medical school. Unfortunately, that did not leave her with many choices. She went on to attend the University of Georgia from which she graduated with two degrees – one in psychology with a pre-health track and another in communications studies.
Dr. Robert Rectenwald
C-HOP Faculty Clinician Dr. Robert Rectenwald holds a bachelor’s degree in business and even taught for several years in technical schools and community colleges. But, he says, his true passion at that time was motorcycle racing, and he thought he would be the “world champion of motorcycle racing!” However, 10 years and 22 crashes later, his chiropractor recommended to him, during one of the many times Rectenwald was there to “get put back together,” that he really should think of another line of work.
