OUR DOCTORS AND STAFF
Dr. David Lovsin
Dr. Lovsin established his practice in Kanata in 1987. Along with his Doctor of Chiropractic he holds a Masters degree in Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo where he specialized in biomechanics, the study of the interaction of forces on the body. His undergraduate degree was completed at the University of Ottawa.
His interest in chiropractic stems from his youth when he saw the amazing results experienced by his father, uncle, and grandmother under chiropractic care. His grandmother, in particular, after three days in the hospital with excruciating back and leg pain, was told nothing could be done. She was literally carried from the hospital to the chiropractor, under whose care she experienced complete relief and return of mobility within a number of weeks.
Dr. Lovsin's interests include personal health and fitness, and he has competed in numerous races, including running, triathlons, and duathlons, and cross-country ski events. He enjoys recreational activities and family life. He lives in Kanata with his wife and two daughters.
Dr. Lauren Guerrero
Dr. Guerrero is a 2012 graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and started her practice in Kanata in 2013. She was raised in Kanata and completed her undergraduate degree in Health Sciences at the University of Ottawa.
Dr. Guerrero has been a chiropractic patient since she was just two weeks of age and was a patient of Dr. Fefferman's from the age of three. As an active and athletic individual, Dr. Guerrero has always valued the role that chiropractic has played to keep her functioning well. Her interest in becoming a chiropractor began in high school and continued with encouragement from Dr.'s Fefferman and Mahoney, who both mentored and supported her through college.
Dr. Guerrero is living in Kanata with her husband and fellow chiropractor, Dr. Rodrigo Guerrero, and their son Hayden, who happens to have been born on the "birthday" of Chiropractic - September 18th. She is happy to be back in Kanata and is very excited to be in familiar surroundings at the Family Chiropractic Centre.

Lynda has been a member of our team since 2007. Lynda came to us as a young mother with a back problem in 1992. As her family grew, she and her husband have appreciated the value of chiropractic care as it has greatly benefited their overall health and aided their three active sons with various sports injuries.
