Dr. Robert Ehlers: A Holistic Inspiration

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

VACAVILLE — When asked what led him to pursue a career as a chiropractor, Dr. Robert Ehlers says he found his inspiration early in life. “My mother had a practice doing holistic medicine and therapy, and she was introduced to chiropractic through networking with other professionals in that realm. Growing up, chiropractors fascinated me to no end. I think what intrigued me the most was how they were able to heal their patients without conventional medicinal means—no nasty smells or painful procedures. It just lit a fire inside of me, and from then on, I knew it was what I wanted to do.”

Despite the young age at which he experienced his epiphany, Robert managed to stay focused on his vocational goal all the way through to adulthood. Even when presented with other opportunities, he knew he had to stay true to his heart’s desire. “After high school, I had people offer to pay for my schooling if I chose to become a medical doctor, but it wasn’t what I wanted,” he recounts. “After earning my degree at Life University in Georgia, I moved back to my hometown of Vacaville and started my practice in 2001.”

Today, as owner of Ehlers Chiropractic Center, Dr. Ehlers says his favorite part of his job is seeing the results of his work. “I treat a lot of patients whose health has been stuck in a downward spiral, and it’s very rewarding to turn things around for them. When someone is suddenly able to do things they haven’t been able to do for a long time, you see the spark return to their eyes. Basically, I get to see little miracles all the time.”

A resident of Vacaville, Robert spends his free time taking advantage of everything the regional setting has to offer. “Living in the Bay Area, we have an amazing outdoor playground at our disposal,” he says. “I do a lot of outdoor activities like motorcycling, dirt biking and boating. I’m also a bit of a foodie and enjoy sampling all the great local cuisine, especially in the Napa Valley.” Additionally, Robert likes keeping up with his three grown children, Anna, Grant and Kailey.

In regard to a professional philosophy, Dr. Ehlers references a lesson gleaned from a previous livelihood. “During college, I worked as a server in a fine dining restaurant, where I learned the value of service,” he explains. “I realized when people go out to eat, it’s not because they can’t cook at home—it’s because they want to have a nice experience. If the experience isn’t good, they probably won’t return, even if the food is great. That really stuck with me, and today I make it a point to give my patients both helpful treatment and a great overall experience.”

When asked about his future retirement plans, Dr. Ehlers says he doesn’t have any. “I feel like I’m already retired,” he laughs. “I enjoy treating patients and interacting with people, so I don’t think I’ll ever stop doing that. After all, you get no enjoyment out of life by keeping things to yourself—true fulfillment comes from helping others.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: Have you ever read a book more than once?
A: I’m a big fan of Zig Ziglar and I’ve read a couple of his books more than once.

Q: What’s your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
A: Ride my motorcycle.

Q: Music or talk radio?
A: Music.

Q: Do you collect anything?
A: Testimonials from patients I’ve helped over the years. I have a folder of them that’s probably an inch and a half thick.

  • What To Ask References
    What to Ask Previous Customer of Chiropractors in Solano County

    It’s best to choose a Diamond Certified chiropractor because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can’t pass. If you want quality from a chiropractor in Solano County and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company. Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you’ll never be fooled by fake reviews. That’s because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

    If you can’t find a Diamond Certified chiropractor within reach, you’ll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it’s wise to call some references provided by your chiropractor. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the chiropractor are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. That’s because references given to customers from companies are cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers. So the contractors will likely give you a few customers to call that they know are satisfied.

    If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company’s ten most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

    Here is a list of some questions to consider when speaking with references of chiropractors:

    1. Did the chiropractic clinic listen to and communicate with you?
    2. Does the staff take time to make sure you understood your chiropractic treatment?
    3. Were you confident about the results of the complete chiropractic examination?
    4. Were you confident of the doctor’s recommendation for you?
    5. Would you recommend this chiropractor to your friends and family?
    6. Are you happy with the training and treatment you are receiving from the chiropractic clinic?
    7. Was there a payment plan that worked well for you?

Q: Are patients adjusted the same ways?
A: No, they aren’t. The chiropractor evaluates each patient’s spinal problem and will develop course of care just for them.

Q: What exactly is chiropractic care?
A: Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that will focus on treating causes of physical problems, not just symptoms. It works off the premise that with a normal functioning spine and nerve system, your body can heal itself. Your spine is the lifeline of your nervouse system and controls the movement, feeling, and function of your body.

Q: Can chiropractic care be addictive to people?
A: No, it isn’t. If it was, there would be many more healthy people, and chiropractors wouldn’t get patients who saw a chiropractor years ago when their back went out.  Regular care will make you feel more balanced, less stressed, and more energetic. Good health is addictive, not chiropractic care.
