Douglas L. Giles, DC

CEO/Clinic Director

Dr. Giles is originally from Richmond Virginia but has made his home in the Athens area. He graduated from Madison County High School and attended Georgia College in Milledgeville and the University of Georgia in Athens. Originally, he was a Business major at the UGA Terry College of Business but a car wreck led him to alter his path to healthcare.

As a nontraditional student, Dr. Giles worked nights in local manufacturing facilities to pay for school. He and his wife, Elyse raised their three children while working and sacrificing for 10 long years. By 2002, he had earned his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees. Since that time, he has owned and operated two successful practices. He has integrated his practices to offer family medicine, physical therapy and chiropractic care. Dr. Giles is a sought after medical practice consultant and enjoys developing practice management systems for the healthcare industry.

“Dr. G” as he is best known around the office has been a mentor and coach to dozens of young DCs around the State of Georgia. As Extension Faculty for Life University, his offices are utilized by the University for Senior level Doctors to complete outpatient clinical requirements.

He was honored in 2013 with the distinguished Chiropractor of the Year award by the Georgia Chiropractic Association after serving as the Association's President.

Dr. Giles is an avid private pilot, divemaster, outdoorsman and struggling golfer. With all that he does in Athens and around the State of Georgia, his favorite activity is enjoying time with his family and friends.
