Dr. Wagoner's Profile
Dr. Gary L. Wagoner grew up in southern California and has always enjoyed the wide variety of outdoor activities that beautiful year around weather provides! From the 2nd grade, until joining the United States Navy immediately after high school at the age of 18, he spent almost every day in a very large chiropractic rehabilitation center that his mother managed, along with an orthopedic surgeon. He was developing x-rays, helping patients with physical therapy equipment and activities, participating in rehabilitation sessions and assisted with the daily chores of maintaining an office.
While serving in the Navy he was deployed overseas and was trained in emergency combat trauma and first-aid skills. He then completed 4 years of under-graduate studies in 2 1/2 years because he was taking classes at 2 different colleges full-time during the day, at night and on the weekends.
He graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in December of 1999, however in his last year of school he was nominated for, and accepted, a position as Secretary of the California Chiropractic Association, San Gabriel Valley Chapter. Dr. Wagoner was the very first student ever to hold an official office title in the history of the California Chiropractic Association. He maintained his position as Secretary for 3 years and fought many legal battles for the chiropractic profession and the people of California.
Dr. Wagoner has been honored with numerous awards and commendations for his service to the community by the United States Congress and the United States Army for providing no-cost chiropractic care to troops being deployed to, and returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. He was made an Honorary Member of a U.S. Army Logistics Unit in recognition for his service to our military. Being a military veteran himself this recognition by the Army holds a very special place in his heart.
