Dr. Jose Barcelo

Dr. Jose Barceló was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  At a very young age he started to develop passion about how the human body works and functions, thanks to his father, Dr. Andrés Barceló- Miller, an Internal Medicine Specialist. Every weekend, he used to accompany his father visiting his patients at the hospital, acquiring, through this experience, not only knowledge in the clinical field, but, most importantly, compassion and understanding about the patients’ conditions and needs. Dr. Barceló spent his childhood and adolescence staying active in sports, such as basketball, soccer and, later on, he also incorporated his interest in extreme sports, such as mountain bike and surfing. Dr. Barcelo also enjoys music. He plays drums and studied several years at the Music Conservatory in Puerto Rico. Dr. Barceló completed his bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico.

When the time to decide on which health career he wanted to follow, Dr. Barcelo already clearly understood how the health system in America works, and how, in most cases, it is not providing real solutions. Being injured multiple times doing sports and exercises, Dr. Barceló went through multiple approaches to address his conditions. Multiple failures in care happened, from getting treated with medication to physical therapy; but it was not until Dr. Barceló was sent to visit a Chiropractor next door to his father’s office, that he started to experience a real difference. He got chiropractic care and felt a powerful and quick recovery in just a couple of sessions. He understood how amazing and strong the body is, as long it keeps working all in harmony, and how vital is the nervous system and how perfectly coordinated every function of the body is, as well.  Developing a high interest in chiropractic, Dr. Barceló quickly started to learn more about chiropractic and the different school programs the nation offers.  He decided to enroll at Parker University College of Chiropractic. Dr. Barceló did not waste any time, successfully finishing his academic career and approved all his board examinations without failing, staying focused and determined. During his time in chiropractic school, he was involved in the Parker Gonstead Club to develop a very high-level skill of palpation, motion palpation and, of course, the very fine art of specific adjustment, which only Gonstead Technique offers. He was also involved in shadowing two of the best Gonstead doctors in the DFW area for the last two years of his academic career learning much more in the technique, radiographic analysis and interpretation. Currently, Dr. Barceló continues to enrich his knowledge by staying updated with the latest research and working on his Chiropractic Biophysics certification, knowledge in corrective care, functional movement and functional neurology.

Dr. Barceló fully understands the scope of the chiropractic practice. His compassion and absolute knowledge can precisely guide patients on the right path to reach a better health and wellness way of living. If the case is not suitable for chiropractic, his clear clinical and ethical vision will also point you out to the right referral in order to get the right answers.  Being in practice, nothing fills more Dr. Barceló’s heart than knowing that he is aiding his patients to correct and heal their conditions, and, most importantly, keeping his mission of giving them hope of a better quality of life without prescription or chances of surgery. That’s the core point!
