Dr. Joseph Kurnik medical crisisDr Joe with his son & dogs
Last Wednesday June 2, 2021, Dr. Joe suffered a sudden unexpected medical crisis and is in the ICU at a Torrance hospital. Audrey has verified this is true & she is swamped with calls. We hope that with help from all of us, that when he recovers he will not have to deal with all the financial pressures of catching up with maintaining his office, living expenses and medical expenses. You know Joe would give you the Hawaiian shirt off his back.

His patients are very aware of his gifts of healing and of him ALWAYS putting his patients first. Now it’s our time to do something for him. Please share this news and please donate whatever you are comfortable with, knowing you are giving to a sympathetic healer who has been there for all of us when we needed him.  News & Updates at the GoFundMe link below.  Thank you so very much

You can also help by buying his book: The Coiled Nature of the Spine (kindle version)
