DR. ROBERT V. DiMONDA, DC, FICPA
PASSION, AND VISION
Dr Robert V DiMonda was born in Brooklyn, New York, and since a child, had always desired to help others. He would always comfort family and friends alike. He was the kid on the playing field that would run to the injured player -- with 'band-aids' in his back pockets! Soon he would come to realize that
he had a healing gift inside, and that this desire would grow and mature into a journey to discover what path to take. His vision for the natural health pathway would be the focus -- only after the outcome of his own personal health crisises.
At age 16, his shoulder and scapula were paralyzed from a swimming pool injury. Orthopedic and neurological doctors failed to give help, and he was
told to consider a dangerous surgery that 'might' help him. Thanks to Marie his mom, she said no to the surgery. One Sunday, at the dinner table, eating pasta, Dr Rob's uncle, Dr Caselli, a chiropractor, examined him. The next day, x rays of his shoulder and spine revealed "pinched nerves" causing the paralyzed muscles. Dr Rob was "miraculously" healed from this paralysis, by a chiropractor! This event had strongly impacted his life.
While attending the University of Buffalo, (taking pre-med classes), Dr Rob had a head-on automobile collision, causing him severe neck pain and
migraine headaches. Once again, after chiropractic treatments, he was cured! No more missed classes due to severe head pains. He then decided
against medicine as a career, (even as many in his family members wanted him to). He honestly did not believe in drugs or surgery. After prayer, and
soul searching and being honest with himself, he began pursuing his study of chiropractic health science, at National College of Chiropractic, Lombard Illinois.
After graduating professional school, and completing a Residency in Chiropractic Corrective Therapy, Dr DiMonda, in 1978, then began a second Residency in Gonstead and Activator Chiropractic, at So. Elgin Chiropractic Associates. He was chief clinician and Associate Clinic Director of So. Elgin Chiropractic Associates for six years. His passion for serving the community in a cooperative effort resulted in the formation of Advanced Family Healthcare Center, in 1984. This center provided the disciplines of medicine, chiropractic, optometry, podiatry, dentistry, and physical therapy, all under one roof. This "first
of its kind", multi-disciplined health care center served the communities of Lisle and Naperville.
