THE BEST SELLING AUTHOR
While working in the surgery unit at John Muir Medical Center, the young, future Dr. Gazdar had the firm intention of eventually applying to medical school. Some friends suggested that he investigate the chiropractic profession as well, so he enrolled in Life Chiropractic College West for a couple of quarters, just to get a feel for it.
Dr. Gazdar had never had any chiropractic experience, so he quickly arranged to start on a regular program of adjustments. Much to his delight and surprise, the asthma that had plagued him all of his life completely disappeared — and has never returned! He opened his practice in Walnut Creek, California in 1990 and is celebrating 30+ years of service to the community.
THE CHIROPRACTOR FOR THE SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Over the years, Dr. Gazdar has helped many celebrities and sports stars. Dr. Gazdar is honored to be the official chiropractic physician for the San Francisco Giants baseball team since 2008, and owns three World Series titles and rings as Team Chiropractor.
Dr. Gazdar has also been awarded the prestigious Alumni of the Year award from Life Chiropractic College-West, twice (in 1995 and 2011). The award is given out to one Alumni per year, based on service to the college, the chiropractic profession, and the local community.
His first book, Taking Your Back to the Future, was first published in 1995 and went on to sell over 60,000 copies.
In 2007 he published his first novel, The Lost El Dorado, a thriller about a hunt for the Lost City of El Dorado up the Amazon River. He has since written the sequel, The Return to the Lost El Dorado, in 2020, and is currently launching his newest book The Lost Treasure of the Jamaican Pirate, the third book in The Lost El Dorado Series.
Dr. Gazdar has coached youth baseball in Walnut Creek from 1999-2016. He is also a big supporter of law enforcement, including the Sheriff’s Posse and The One Hundred Club, an organization dedicated to protecting the welfare of families of peace officers and firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Since 1991, he has also devoted time and effort to a yearly toy and food drive, donating his services in exchange for food contributions to the local food bank and the collection of toys for underprivileged youth.
He has been married to his wife Teri since 1991 and they have three children.
