My name is Dr. Lawrence Ross and along with my family, I would like to personally welcome you to our site, and hopefully, to our practice. I hope you find our site informative, easy to understand, and a little more enjoyable than your average medical snooze. I would like to start off by giving you a little background on myself and our practice. I have been a Chiropractic Physician on the Treasure Coast for over 30 years and I am happy to say that we are both family owned and operated. We believe in treating our patients as members of our family. You and your loved ones are not a number to us, or a name on a list - we are not here to wrap you up in lengthy treatment plans with assurances that only three times a week treatments will make you feel better. No two individuals are alike and thus, no two individuals will heal or progress identically - your care will be based solely on your individual needs. We know that deciding on a health care provider can be an extremely daunting endeavor. You see advertisements promising reduced fees or free services; promises of treatments for everything from headaches to the Ebola Virus. At Orange Avenue Chiropractic and Healthcare, you will never experience that kind of marketing. 


We do not employ bait and switch tactics to get you to come to our office - we provide you with educational materials and information so that YOU can make an informed decision about starting on the road to better health through chiropractic care. I have been in practice for nearly thirty years and over the course of that time, I have had patients that have greatly benefited from chiropractor care, ones that swear by chiropractic care, and the occasional patient that does not benefit from this form of care whatsoever - and that's okay, not everyone benefits from the same thing. If we cannot help you, we will tell you. We will refer you to someone that may be able to help you in a way that our office cannot. I have worked with many of the doctors and diagnostic centers in the area and after being in practice in both Saint Lucie County and Martin County for as long as I have, I am confident that any outside referral I may give you will be the right one for you.


Needless to say, we are here for you. Whether chiropractor care is right for you or not, we are always here to help. We offer convenient office hours, appointments before and after hours, on weekends, and during holidays; and we are more that happy to make special arrangements for you should you have the need for them. You will receive our personal phone numbers so that you can reach us at anytime. Accidents do not only happen between the hours of 9 and 5, however convenient that may be. Life happens and when you need someone, you should have someone you are able to call night or day. We will always come in to help you.


It is my dearest hope that after getting a glimpse of who we are as people and practitioners that you decide to start your journey to a healthier life with our family. I am always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have and please, feel free to stop into our office at 5420 Orange Avenue in Fort Pierce, FL at any time to speak with me. 

I look forward to meeting you, 

Lawrence Ross, DCPA
