Gina M. LehmanDC, FASADoctor
In 2009, Dr. Lehman received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Her undergraduate studies were completed at Iowa State University. While at Palmer, she received in-depth experience in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal conditions of the spine and extremities, and regularly performed physical, neurologic, and orthopedic examinations.
In October 2008, before receiving her degree, Dr. Lehman traveled to Hyderabad, India to participate in a clinic abroad program offered at Palmer. Over the course of 3 weeks, she and 40 other students of Chiropractic gave over 5,000 free adjustments at schools and hospitals throughout the community. This opportunity provided her with hands-on experience treating many complex symptoms and conditions.
Dr. Lehman opened this office after being an associate doctor in 2010. It has been one of the best decisions in her life. She has had the opportunity to work with a lot of great patients in the Quad City area. She loves coming to work each day and considers each patient an extension of her own family.
Dr. Lehman and her husband have lived in the Quad Cities since 2005 and have come to call it home. Her husband is the Assistant Tournament Director for the John Deere Classic Golf Tournament. Dr. Lehman enjoys spending time with her family and watching her son, Ethan, and daughter, Ellie grow. Dr. Lehman's children are active in sports and activities so in her free time she is usually at the ball field or on a court somewhere. Dr. Lehman and family are Iowa Hawkeye and Cub fans. They all love attending sporting events.
Dr. Keeli Farley, a Fort Dodge, Iowa native, attended the University of Iowa where she became an avid Hawkeye fan while studying Athletic Training. She then went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Buena Vista University. Keeli continued her education at Palmer College in Davenport where she received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in February 2015. While at Palmer, she learned the latest in diagnostics, spinal adjustment techniques, and physiotherapy.
As part of her educational experience and training at Palmer, Dr. Keeli had the opportunity to travel to Nadi, Fiji, where she participated in the clinic abroad program. In Fiji, Keeli practiced chiropractic care while treating hundreds of rural natives. She gained an abundance of experience while offering free adjustments and treatment in the schools and community. Most of her patients in Fiji were under-privileged families and children who had never seen or received any type of care from any health-care provider.
Dr. Keeli enjoys spending time with her husband, Seth and son, Knox, along with family, friends, and her loyal, crazy yellow lab, named Rocky. Her hobbies include running, working out, and watching Iowa Hawkeyes football.
She feels very fortunate to be working alongside such caring, compassionate people and is extremely excited to join the Bettendorf Chiropractic Wellness Center team. Dr. Keeli would love to talk to you about how chiropractic care can benefit you and your entire family.
