Ronald A. Avard, D.C.

6/18/1932 - 11/21/2001

With love and devotion to my father, Ronald A. Avard, D.C., who introduced me to the wonderful field of chiropractic, and acted not only as my father, but as my friend, my mentor and my colleague, I present this brief history of his career.  After ten years practicing at his side I have grown to share his love for chiropractic and for our patients and their well-being.   His spirit will continue in our thoughts, prayers and practice.
