Dr. Paul J. Gordon, a Louisiana native, knew as a child that he wanted to be a doctor. It was not until he suffered a shoulder injury playing high school sports that he knew he wanted to be a chiropractor. After undergoing surgery and enduring months of rehab, he realized that he still had limited range of motion and limited use of his shoulder. A chance meeting with a chiropractor helped him learn how to heal his injury and regain strength and range of motion. With a renewed spirit and focused mission, Dr. Gordon decided he would become a chiropractor.
He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, while minoring in Chemistry, from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1998. He then received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, Texas in 2001. While at Parker, he also earned a second Bachelor of Science in Anatomy.
