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. (link to read more)

Deedra Rittersdorf
Billing Administrator

IMG_1460-1-e1436905465303Hi. I’m Deedra. I have been with Balanced Health for 10 years last September. Over the years I have seen many changes with the practice. While some of the changes have been challenging they have helped us to learn and grow the practice to what it is now. I was offered this position just months after completing my schooling to become a Medical Administrative Assistant. I received my diploma and acceptance into the NTHS two months after accepting the position. I am working towards completing my associate’s degree.

I have three children that take up every minute that I am not here. Between work, bowling, track and school projects I seem to always be moving. The long trek from home gives us plenty of time to catch up with what has happened in our day.

Melissa Baker
Front Desk Chiropractic Assistant

IMG_1507-1-e1436905551743Melissa joined the Balanced Health team in October of 2012. She was raised in Zeeland from the age of 10 and graduated from Zeeland High School in 2002. When Melissa was in high-school, she and her family started seeing Dr. Paul and his care has made a big difference in their lives. Melissa attended Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids for Elementary Education. She enjoys involvement in theatre and choir in her spare time and is involved in Barnabas Ministries here in Zeeland.

“Even though I have been on staff just a short while, it has been a great joy to become a member of the team at Balanced Health. Chiropractic has been part of my life for as long as I can remember and I have always appreciated the care I have received from Dr. Paul. Since coming to Balanced Health I have been welcomed in warmly and have loved getting to know the doctors, staff, and patients here. I look forward to meeting you, too!”

Laura Arens
Chiropractic Assistant

IMG_1531-2-e1436905661936I have been working at Balanced Health Chiropractic since October of 2011. In total, I have six years experience working in a medical setting. I love working with patients and getting to meet new people. I enjoy working with the staff here at Balanced Health. They all are great to work with and I look forward to coming into work!

I have lived in Zeeland for six years and love it here. I have four kids, and my husband and I enjoy spending time outdoors with them. We love to go for hikes, bike rides, and go camping. I currently have my associates degree in Child Development and hope to go back to school in the future.

 

 

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 my self 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 family, or watching movie classics. I also enjoy teaching Sunday school for the 7-10 yr olds at my church.
