MEET OUR CHAMPION WELLNESS CENTERS DOCTORS

VALRICO OFFICE TEAM

Dr. Kyle Mullan

From as far back as he can remember Dr. Mullan was always extremely active. He participated in football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, swimming, golf, and even racquetball. Born and raised in the Clearwater area, Dr. Mullan loves being on the water either fishing or relaxing on the boat. Having an active and health conscious lifestyle, he knew the healthcare profession was his calling. He started his undergraduate education with the intent of going into the medical field. Dr. Mullan strongly agrees with a non-invasive approach to healthcare, and chiropractic care fit well with those beliefs. He never understood why so many patients jump right to intensive surgery before even attempting conservative care. The idea that dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system can affect general health via the nervous system just made sense to him.

Education

Dr. Mullan went to high school here in the Tampa Bay area at Clearwater Central Catholic High School. After graduating with Honors, he decided to move to Gainesville to attend the University of Florida. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree with a major in Biology and minor in Business at UF, he moved to Port Orange, FL to study at the oldest and first chiropractic college, Palmer College of Chiropractic. During his time at Palmer, the majority of courses included in-depth information on the nervous and skeletal systems, chiropractic techniques, and patient care. Dr. Mullan took a very high interest in Spinal Neurology so he decided to become the tutor for 2 years while attending. During Dr. Mullan’s last semester at Palmer he left school for the opportunity to intern at a chiropractic clinic that allowed him to build upon academic knowledge and clinical experience.

Outside the Office

On his days off, Dr. Mullan loves to be outside, especially with activities involving the water or his dog, Riley. He enjoys taking her to the dog park a least once per day. Growing up in a family who prides themselves on athletics, he always wanted to be outside with his friends playing football in the street, basketball in the driveway, or simply throwing a ball against a wall. Dr. Mullan intends on continuing his education and become the chiropractor for a professional sports team. When he has time off, he loves supporting his Tampa Bay teams by going to Rays, Lightning, and Bucs games as often as possible.

Dr. Mike Risoldi

When I was just 16, I witnessed how effective chiropractic care could be in changing someone’s life. All my life, I had watched my mother suffer with debilitating migraine headaches. She would spend days resting in her dark bedroom, unable to move due to the severe pain she experienced. My mom tried a number of different types of doctors and every medication possible but nothing helped. Finally, it was a chiropractor who turned her life around.

When my mother started receiving regular chiropractic care, not only did her headaches subside, but her ulcerative colitis also began to heal. After I saw these positive transformations in my mom, I knew that I wanted to be a chiropractor. I wanted to help others find their way to a healthier and pain-free life.

Background and Education

I grew up in Trenton, New Jersey and completed my undergraduate studies at Montclair State University. In 1996, I graduated from Life University School of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia. After graduation, I moved to Florida. I have been practicing here in Clearwater since 1998.

My Approach to Healing

My main goal is to empower my patients to maximize their life’s potential. While some chiropractors may choose to focus on neck and back pain, I offer my patients a well-rounded, holistic approach to healthcare. I work closely with my patients to offer continuing education in the areas of exercise, nutrition, supplements and maintaining a healthy mindset. With personalized, gentle adjustments, I can get you on the path to healing from a number of health concerns.

“The power of the human body and its ability to heal never ceases to amaze me. Every day, we witness small miracles in the lives of our patients. These changes fuel my passion for helping others.” – Dr. Mike Risoldi

Corinne Ermacor

I grew up in a small city in upstate New York with a chiropractor as a father. From an early age, chiropractic was a part of my daily life. Aside from building great relationships with patients and understanding the daily routine of a chiropractic office, I grew to understand the importance of chiropractic care. Lives were improved each day and experiencing this firsthand showed me that helping others was something I aspired to be a part of.

I attended Saint Leo University, where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. Being a part of the Champion Wellness Centers team is nothing but a pleasure. To witness each patient overcome their pain and illness is the greatest experience. I am grateful to work with phenomenal doctors who are truly passionate about the overall health and wellness of others.

Outside of the office, I enjoy reading, shopping, spending time with my family and friends, and working out. Most importantly, I love to go on adventures with my dog, Akela!
