Dr. Richard Gorman
Dr. Gorman was raised on Oregon’s southern coast in Bandon. He graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1972. While attending law school in Washington, chiropractic was used to remedy a health problem. As a result of this very positive encounter, his interest grew and lead him to pursue training as a Doctor of Chiropractic. After 4 years of additional schooling, Dr. Gorman graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1977.
Dr. Gorman has owned Garden Way Chiropractic for over 40 years. He’s heavily involved in the track and field world - treating many world class athletes. Greatest of all, is his passion for treating his family and helping them stay healthy and active in all they do.
