Meet The Team

Dr. Stanley Dombroski
Doctor of Chiropractic

drstan-225x300Balanced Health was formed in November of 2003. Many ask why we picked Zeeland of all places. The truth is I grew up in rural Ohio on a farm and wanted to be in a small town atmosphere.

There is nothing better than walking down the sidewalk on a spring afternoon and having people yell “Hello, Dr. Stan” from across the street.

After high school, I went to Ohio University where I graduated with a degree in Exercise Physiology. From there it was off to Palmer College of Chiropractic, where chiropractic was discovered and developed. Prior to graduation, I traveled to Vietnam for 2-3 weeks, with a group of approximately 20 other chiropractors, to help the Red Cross set up clinics in rural areas of the country.

I completed my requirements for graduation one trimester early and qualified to spend the last trimester of school as an intern with the past president of NUCCA, Dr. Milton Steele, on Whidbey Island near Seattle. (like to read more)

Dr. Rachel Babbitt
Doctor of Chiropractic

IMG_1534-1-e1436900043493Dr. Rachel Babbitt was born and raised in Grand Haven, MI. She completed her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at Michigan State University. She originally wanted to attend Medical School upon graduation, but instead found a passion for chiropractic care. After seeing a Chiropractor for neck and shoulder issues and finding great relief, she found that the Chiropractic philosophy of treating the whole person, instead of the symptom resonated with her.

She moved to Atlanta to attend Life University College of Chiropractic. Dr. Babbitt graduated in June 2011 Magna Cum Laude. Her qualifications include : National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) Parts I-IV certifications and Physiotherapy certification. Dr. Rachel has taken additional coursework in pediatrics, pregnancy, women’s health and family chiropractic care. 

Dr. Rachel now heads up and runs our Grand Rapids, MI Chiropractic Office. Click here to read more about Balanced Health of Grand Rapids.

I’m Deedra. I am the lead Chiropractic Assistant. I have been with the office for more than a decade and can’t imagine working anywhere else. The doctors have helped me and my children with many health issues over the last many years. Recently my oldest son moved to Tennessee and my second son became a Marine! (OO RAH!) My youngest is still at home and is going to enjoy being the only child for several years before he goes to college. Balanced Health opened it’s doors for the first time when my youngest was almost two! I have been lucky enough to be able to watch both grow to be big and strong and healthy! I can’t wait to see where the next decade takes us all!

Rochelle Coppersmith
Chiropractic Assistant

I joined the Balanced Health team in April of 2015.  I have always enjoyed working with people and I like the feeling of making a difference in their lives.  This is a great place to be for that!  Working with the staff here is like being a part of the BEST team!  We have great doctors, and we couldn’t ask for better patients.

I grew up in Holland and consider myself extremely blessed to have grown up in such a beautiful place.  In my free time you will most likely find me curled up with a cup of tea and a good book, spending time with my family, or watching movie classics.  I also enjoy teaching Sunday school for the 7-10 year olds at my church.
