Meet the Doctor

Thomas J. Field is a determined man with as explosive a capacity for work and life as his Chiropractic profession has for the people it serves. He believes you can’t cut corners to success and that there is no substitute for a thorough evaluation so as to determine the cause of the health condition and the appropriate recommendation of care. Dr. Field relates his most satisfying experience in Chiropractic is having success when other health sciences and doctors have failed. Dr. Field was raised on a farm near Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, the home of the world famous Gonstead Clinic of Chiropractic. He attended a country elementary school and high school in Mount Horeb.
