Dr. Kevin Anderson and his wife, Sue Ellen, grew up in the same home town of Brazil, Ind., began dating while working together in the same medical office, and celebrated 25 years of marriage in June. It also marks 25 years of serving the Zionsville area with their business, Anderson Chiropractic.
The recommendation to open a practice in Zionsville came from a resident who was a patient of Anderson’s while interning in Indianapolis. With the precision of a pollster, Anderson went door-to-door and interviewed Zionsville residents to determine if it was the right area for them. “As newlyweds and not knowing much about Zionsville, we considered first, where we want to raise a family, then we had to decide if it was the right place to open our business,” Anderson said.“We wanted a hometown feel with friendly people and values similar to ours.
As a high school football player, Andersontook a hard tackle and began to experience pain in his knee. Perplexed that doctors could not find anything wrong; his uncle, also a chiropractor, witnessed him icing the knee and told him to come to his office. He found a vertebrae in his nephew’s lower back was pushed out of line. After his treatment, the pain in his knee was gone and Anderson’s career path established.
“I am very fortunate. I married my best friend, see a variety of people, from student athletes, patients of all ages and my Zionsville patients are generous with their referrals so I welcome patients from many other areas,” Anderson said.
