Dr. Ian K. Yamane, DC
Dr. Ian Yamane grew up in a small community in San Diego County. At home, his mother battled illness for over 20 years. He witnessed a high spirited woman who was held back by a sick body and was relegated to her bed. She had no vitality and was always sick. He watched his father pick up the slack in the household to care for his sick wife while working full time and raising a family. It was painful for Dr. Yamane to experience his parents return each time from a doctor's visit as he had high hopes that the large bag of pills would somehow cure her. At times there were some glimpses of hope that she was cured, yet gradually over time she would end up right back in bed. Unfortunately, after visiting with many of the top healthcare specialists she passed away at a premature age. From that moment on, Dr. Yamane had a burning desire to start his journey in finding a way to help people with chronic and difficult to treat conditions in an alternative and natural way. His desire for all families to enjoy optimal health drives his research and development of patient care so that no individual within families will have to suffer the same life-long debilitating heath that held back his family from the joy they could have had.
Dr. Yamane graduated with honors from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in 1993. He then moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to create his dream of starting his own practice. For the next 25 years his practice had blossomed into multiple clinics spread throughout the Las Vegas valley. He currently owns and operates his clinics out of 4 locations.
Dr Yamane has developed a wellness clinic utilizing a multidisciplinary approach which offers family medicine, functional medicine, chiropractic, naturopathy, massage therapy, weight loss, and body sculpting services.
