Dr. Donald J. Bretz D.C.

Chiropractor & Nutrition Healer

Dr. Bretz was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska where he graduated from Creighton Preparatory High School, a college preparatory Catholic High School. He continued his education for three years at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa studying exercise sports science and taking pre-chiropractic classes. Dr. Bretz moved on to an education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa where he graduated on October 24th, 2003. Dr. Bretz has been practicing chiropractic in the great State of Michigan for over 12 years now......time flies when you love what you do for a living!

Dr. Bretz became interested in chiropractic from a college buddy who at the time was studying and taking classes in preparation for entrance into chiropractic college. His friend talked of all the miracles he had seen and heard from visiting his hometown chiropractor and Dr. Bretz knew in that moment "chiropractic" was what he wanted to dedicate his life too! "Honestly as I listened to my friend speak of chiropractic something began to stir within me and I knew this was my calling." I will never forget that moment when I was introduced to Chiropractic! I than sought out my first chiropractor and almost overnight my allergies, asthma, chronic runny nose, acne, and chronic tiredness disappeared. "I also noticed a change in my outlook on life, my attitude, and everything just seemed to function better in my life and body!" "Chiropractic literally changed my life and I just want to be a vessel to help it change others’ lives as well!" Upon graduating I was told by a practicing chiropractor that "Chiropractic is a calling and you have been called to serve your community by helping them save their own lives through your chiropractic care and views on health and the wellness!" I truly believe this statement with all my heart & soul.

Dr. Bretz enjoys reading about health and wellness, chiropractic, running, lifting, UFC fighting, movies, Nebraska & Notre Dame football, Lions Football, Tigers Baseball, traveling, going to seminars, self-improvement, biking, jet-skiing, boating, cooking, grilling out and spending time with his lovely wife Liz!   He also loves playing and walking his cute little dog "Lexi."
