On Being a Chiropractor
“I especially like meeting new people,” says Dr. Mark. He can really get to know his patients and feels getting to know them will make him their best doctor.
I think it’s important to establish a safe, comfortable, family atmosphere, where a person can relax knowing they’re in great hands.”
“Patients come with different levels of understanding of our human anatomy, and I’ve found that one of the biggest challenges in my work is to educate each person to the level they need so they can remain healthy for a lifetime.”
Getting Started With Chiropractic
Dr. Mark attended Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge where he met his wife Dr. Vanessa Aucoin. They attended Louisiana State University and then Texas Chiropractic College together. “I’ve had my best friend with me since high school and she is still with me now. She has been by greatest secret to success.” Dr. Mark was able to join Dr. Nelson in 2004 learning from his 25 years experience at that time.
The most surprising thing about Texas Chiropractic College for Dr. Mark was the rigor of the classes. “Before chiropractic school, I was the guy who didn’t have to bring any books home. I just listened in class and got straight A’s, so it was a shock having to finally study.”
Outside the Office
Dr. Mark likes to stay active and get outdoors with his family. He and his wife share a passion for running and have taken the kids along in local 5ks, they zip around with the kids on their moped, and enjoy growing fruits and berries at their home. “Fresh air, sunlight, plenty of water, and a little TLC is usually all they need to bear fruit. They’re a lot like us.”
“The kids take piano and flute classes, and we stay busy with the kids’ baseball and gymnastics events.”
Dr. Mark is a member of the Chiropractic Association of Louisiana, and the American Chiropractic Association. He attends various health conferences and enjoys speaking at churches regarding current health topics.
