Dr. Desiree D’Alessandro
Dr. Desiree Abraham received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, graduating with honors. Before going to chiropractic school, she received her Bachelor of Science degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.
Dr. Abraham has always been interested in the medical field ever since she was very young. She was actually pre-med at Tulane and planning on going to medical school, before she discovered chiropractic. Dr. Abraham did not change her mind to become a chiropractor until the summer before her senior year in college. She had a summer job as a chiropractic assistant and started getting adjusted regularly. She soon realized that the headaches that she had every day were gone, she no longer needed to take medicine for her seasonal allergies, her neck and back pain were completely gone, and she no longer suffered from Fibromyalgia. It was truly amazing and changed Dr. Abraham’s life for the better. She is a walking testimonial about the wonderful benefits of chiropractic and a natural healthy lifestyle!
Dr. Abraham has been in practice for 6 years and recently joined her husband, Dr. Andrew D’Alessandro, in practice in January, 2011. Dr. Abraham has spent a good deal of time taking post-graduate classes, learning new chiropractic techniques, nutrition, radiology, sports medicine, rehabilitation and more. Her number one goal is to help the body heal itself through chiropractic adjustments which remove nerve interference caused by subluxations. She also places a huge emphasis on nutrition and exercise.
