Clinic is owned and staffed by UWS alums and faculty
Willamette Week recently released the Best of Portland 2016 list – as voted on by readers. A big winner was Equilibrium, an integrated health care clinic, that provides chiropractic services as well as acupuncture and massage. The clinic is owned by University of Western States (UWS) class of 2000 alums Nicole Bhalerao, DC, and Shireesh Bhalerao, DC, MCR, CCSP. Class of 2015 alum, Cydney Keller, DC, also serves as a staff chiropractic physician.
Dr. Shireesh Bhalerao, associate professor at UWS, teaches chiropractic and clinical sciences. He believes that the clinic’s focus on a more evidence-based model has helped differentiate Equilibrium from other integrative health clinics.
“We strive to incorporate the best available research evidence into our clinical decision-making. Many patients have complimented us on our efforts to do so. They appreciate the extra effort our practitioners make to find relevant, high-quality research and apply it to their care,” said Dr. Bhalerao. “This approach has also led to a strong referral network with local medical physicians.”
Dr. Bhalerao believes there is a more important differentiator.
“Our patients have always been our central focus. Winning this award means that they recognize this,” said Dr. Bhalerao. “They appreciate the care they receive at Equilibrium. This means a lot to me and the rest of the staff.”
