Dr. Joseph Fortunato, D.C.
Originally from West Long Branch, NJ, Dr. Fortunato, actually attended his first year of college in the mid-west at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, where he received a wrestling scholarship. When asked about his wrestling career he admits he was good in high school, but got his butt kicked in college. This however proved to be an early lesson in perseverance. Admittedly, after his first wrestling season he became home sick, moved back to NJ and completed his undergraduate degree at Seton Hall University.
It was at Seton Hall, from a fraternity brother that he learned about Chiropractic. It was after visiting his fraternity brother at chiropractic college that his decision was made to join the greatest profession in the world. When asked why, he states, "what we can do with our hands is absolutely amazing, and I was blessed to be able to do so." When he is not at the practice he enjoys spending time with his wife Lisa boating, hiking and traveling.
He loves to read and he exercises regularly. His favorite places to travel are St. Thomas Virgin islands, where the sun and the water are the absolute best, Italy, from where he is first generation Italian and the Pacific northwest which he describes as being as close to nature as possible.
