September 3, 2019
When he’s not healing his patients he’s usually in Jordan’s office giving tips on the stock market, or trying to make a putt on the makeshift course. Scott Greenapple’s attention to detail is almost as impressive as his dedication to his practice. We get to know Scott a bit more in this Thriver Spotlight.

Dr. Scott Greenapple
What is your superpower at Thrive?

Why did you choose the field of Medicine
My first degree is in hospital administration. When doing my internship at the Venice Family free clinic in Los Angeles the director suggested I go into practicing medicine instead of the administration role as he felt my ability to help patients with passion and compassion was very good. Having always been more interested in “non-traditional” medicine, I went to Chiropractic school and became a doctor of chiropractic and specialized in sports medicine. Getting to work with professional athletes and teams and being part of the Team USA medical staff for Triathlons led me to investigate more and turned my attention to eastern medicine and philosophy and led me to study in-depth acupuncture/Qi Gong and Mindfulness Meditation.
Bachelor of Arts in Health Care Management/Administration. Doctor of Chiropractic, International Academy of Medical Acupuncture, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician

If you could recommend one thing to someone new coming to thrive it would be?
Let go of the “attachments” you have to your diagnosis. You are not your named disease or condition. Learn how to pause, listen, breathe and take in the information. Come with an open mind and learn how we can empower you to take your healthcare in your hands with guidance, medication if necessary, mind/body practice and turn on the healer within.
What is your definition of Functional Medicine?
Looking deeper into the root or cause of your possible malady. Going beyond the so-called normal parameters of blood work and matching symptoms with low or high of your blood work even if in the normal range. Looking at your body as a holistic network and not the reductionist view of traditional allopathic medicine.
The best part about an appointment?
We listen without rushing you or judgment.
What’s on your Netflix Que?
Dog Kisses on the mouth?
What does Jordan do that annoys you?
Nothing, I love Jordan
