Curriculum Vitae for David M. Salse, DC

As a chiropractor who testifies in court  in med-legal cases, and is contracted with major insurance companies, my reputation and professional background is routinely and thoroughly reviewed.  Attorneys wanting to refer their clients to me need to make sure the doctors they use have a clean record and experience.   In addition, I am licensed and in good standing with the California State Board of Chiropractic Examiners.

But don’t take my word for it.  Be sure to do your own research and find out  why so many people seek out my services for their chiropractic needs.  I’ve included my curriculum vitae for your review.  If you have any questions before using my office, feel free to email me or give me a call.
