Dr. Ferris graduated from Bowling Green State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. Thereafter, he began a career with Johnson and Johnson selling pharmaceuticals. After many successful years with JNJ and looking for a new challenge, he accepted a position with Tyco Medical Division. With Tyco he sold medical devices in the operating room to surgeons and hospitals. Having a unique, up close and personal perspective on a medical model largely dependent on “drugs & surgery”, Dr. Ferris began to become disillusioned with a healthcare system heavily influenced by enormous marketing efforts by “Big Pharma”. It was at this time that a friend recommended he visit a Chiropractor for low back pain. This decision sprouted a turning point as Dr. Ferris personally benefited from complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM). Awakened by the fact that the human body was designed with an inherent recuperative power capable of healing without the use of drugs and surgery most of the time, he reevaluated the direction of his career and life. In January 2002, he enrolled at New York Chiropractic College.
During his time at NYCC, Dr Ferris served as Vice President of his class. He was also the Vice President of the CBP club. While in college, Dr. Ferris challenged himself by completing over 150 hours of “post graduate” training.
