Meet the Doctor

Bill Linacre started his career as a PE teacher and especially enjoyed working with children with disabilites.  Life steered him in a different direction when he learned of chiropractic.  After becoming a Licenced Chiropractor, Dr. Linacre opened his first practice in   Poughkeepsie, NY in 1988.  There, he built a loyal following and today has many of the same practice members he did when he first started.  A devoted and loving husband and father, he was thrilled to find a home with attached office space previously occupied by a dentist.  Dr. Linacre converted this into his current practice space and loves his new "commute!"

Dr. Linacre is committed to promoting health and living a life drug free.
