Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Bob Leonard brings his down to earth personality and lifestyle into everything he does, including chiropractic.

His philosophy towards his patients is simple: "I treat my patients the way I would want my family to be treated at any other health care provider's office." He has instilled this in each doctor he hires which has allowed him to stop seeing new patients and focusing on growing his practice and helping even more people in the community.

What Our Patients Are Saying
- 2018 Cleveland Marathon Winner
"Regularly seeing a chiropractor keeps my body moving efficiently! If a runner's body is out of alignment, it can negatively affect their stride. Chiropractic adjustments correct imbalances, which as a result helps to prevent injuries and make me a better runner! A quick rock-blading session relieves tightness in targeted areas. I usually focus on my traps, lower back, and IT bands. Regular massage therapy also has extreme benefits. Running 60-70 miles a week leaves me with fatigued and tight muscles. Massages help loosen up and elongate my muscles. Afterwards, my movement feels much more fluid. Massages also help reduce inflammation, and of course, provide much needed time to relax!"
- Owner Of Coca Crossfit
"Not all chiropractic offices are created equal and Great Lakes Health and Wellness has made my pregnancy and postpartum journey much smoother. And to top it all off...... they take care of my son as well. Over his first year they kept his spine aligned, helped with teething and poured so much love into his life. BEST part.... you’re in and out in 15min so even the busiest of moms can squeeze it all in."

"An outstanding place to go and receive the proper care for your back, neck, etc. The staff welcomes you when you arrive and the care you get after you arrive is wonderful. I would highly recommend this place. I am a senior and have suffered from back and neck pain and Dr. Lydia (pictured on the left) has made it possible for me to walk without pain and to feel better overall. I can't say enough about this practice. They are truly professionals with a heart!"
- Coach At Orange Theory
"I used to feel pain in my left lumbar spine/oblique area because of an injury while I was performing the exercise with my right arm. I'm pretty sure it's from a minor car accident from a couple years ago in which I was rear-ended. That pain is gone now! I can thank my chiropractor Dr. Bob‼️ The weekly adjustments and constant therapy that I can do at home has helped my back tremendously. I have had a few x-rays since the original appointment, and there is a major improvement in the degree of my spine‼️
