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 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.

They all love attending sporting events.

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.
