Meet Dr. Galen Politis

Dr. Galen Politis and his wife Pat.

Hello, I’m Dr. Galen Politis. My father founded Politis Family Chiropractic PC in 1946, two years before I was born. In 1975, it was my turn to run the practice after graduating Palmer College of Chiropractic in the same year.

I knew since I was four years old that I wanted to be a chiropractor. I grew up with chiropractic attitudes and the lifestyle. I was brought up as a vegetarian on homegrown, organic food and was not vaccinated. I have had very little medication in my life and have only ever taken one aspirin. I am passionate about living holistically and caring for the body naturally because I have experienced the benefits firsthand. I want my patients to enjoy the same health and happiness.

My Wife, Pat Politis

I met my wife, Pat, when we were 14. We had a solid friendship during school, started dating after high school and got married when we were 20. I still remember to this day, thinking when I was 14, ‘I’m going to marry this girl someday.’ I couldn’t be happier to have been right!

Pat is my partner in life and also the office manager of Politis Family Chiropractic PC; she is the glue of the practice. She is the biller, bookkeeper, insurance coordinator and much more.

Living and Working in the Pittsfield Community

Pittsfield is in western Massachusetts and is culturally vibrant. It is the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and home to several theater productions. I am involved in the town myself and helped “birth” a new coffeehouse in the past year. I also appreciate live music and try to promote opportunities for musicians.

In the chiropractic community, I was on the board of or involved in some way or another with the Massachusetts Chiropractic Society for 27 years. I also taught the Grostic Upper Cervical procedure for a number of years.

Family Values Are My Practice Values

Pat and I have two kids and four grandkids. These days we enjoy going to our grandkids’ activities, supporting them and simply being there for them. This is our philosophy with our practice’s patients, as well: We are here for you, to support you and help you through life.

Contact us today to join our practice’s family. I look forward to meeting you!
