Episode 32: Dr. Dennis Fiorini
In this episode, host Dave Fiore speaks with Dr. Dennis Fiorini of Fiorini Chiropractic Center, a practice he founded with his wife, Kim, in 1992. Dennis grew up in Detroit, the youngest of five children, and learned to love sports and music, playing the trumpet in jazz bands with dreams of studying music in college.
All that changed when he was injured in a car accident and received care from a chiropractor to help with severe neck pain. He finished high school with a flurry of science classes, got his prerequisites from a nearby university and then headed to Georgia for chiropractic school.
While there, he received an adjustment from a fellow student for a headache that did not go well, and that led him to the door of the man who would change his life. More than 30 years later, Dr. Fiorini is helping people with the same treatment he received that day and built his professional life around.
The year he graduated, he also met and married Kim, also a chiropractor, and they soon settled in Tallahassee with the idea that it was a place they could be successful professionally and would enjoy living for the rest of their lives.
He and Kim have raised their three children here and seem to have made the adjustment pretty well.
Dennis did not give up on his musical dreams, however, as he taught himself to play guitar and had quite a run performing Garth Brooks music, complete with the trademark shirts and big hat, at local events and festivals.
Don’t miss the bonus content at the end as Dave and Dennis discuss the similarities of their names and the confusion it can cause.
