Dr. Austin Panter
Dr. Austin Panter’s philosophy and practice goes hand in hand with the evidence-based assessment and treatment model that is redefining the manual medicine world. He believes in the ability to live pain free for a better quality of life while maximizing human performance and minimizing injury.
Dr. Panter received his bachelor’s degree with extensive studies in human biomechanics from the University of Michigan. While attending Michigan, he was a linebacker for the Wolverine football team before a career-ending shoulder injury led him to chiropractic college.
Dr. Panter received his doctorate from Logan University’s College of Chiropractic. While at Logan, he attended multiple postgraduate courses on performance care and rehabilitation to complement his chiropractic studies and help better serve his patients.
When out of the office, Dr. Panter enjoys spending time with his wife Maggie Viefhaus Panter and their children, A.J., Frankie and Daisy. His wife Maggie went to Eureka High, but they met in Ann Arbor where she played softball for the Wolverines. His hobbies include golfing, snow skiing, reading and staying up on current treatment protocols and research.
Dr. Rebecca Furlano
Exploring the potential disease triggers that manifest into conditions such as chronic pain, hormone imbalances and autoimmune issues represent some of Dr. Furlano’s areas of interest in her functional medicine practice. As an early adopter of the functional medicine movement—which is largely based on effective communication between the doctor and patient and treatment of the patient’s body as a whole, from the inside out—Dr. Furlano helps patients figure out the root cause of their conditions so they may enjoy restored health and prevent future chronic disease.
A native of Wisconsin, Dr. Furlano has worked in the health care field since 2006, with a unique background that includes manual therapy, holistic nutrition and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Most recently, she studied at National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Ill., where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, which gives her the ability to treat patients as a pioneer in modern health care offering a holistic care approach rooted in evidence-based medicine.
“People are ready for something different, something with substance, something other than just feeling average in their bodies, minds and lives,” Dr. Furlano states. “The external world of the body greatly reflects the internal world of the body; my goal is to hold up the mirror for patients to see that connection, and help them make choices about how to change it.”
