Dr. Troy Dreiling – Chiropractor with Zenaptic Chiropractic
Chiropractors like Dr. Troy Dreiling of Zenaptic Chiropractic lead busy lives. Between consulting with patients, performing adjustments, and operating a business, there isn’t much time during the day for anything else. Add to that a wife and children and you’ve got a man who his on the go.
We were able to sit down with Dr. Troy and ask a few questions about his business and how he’s been able to build it into one of the leading chiropractic practices in Vancouver, Washington. We hope you enjoy!
What are your favorite books and why?
I like success books, they keep me motivated, focused and they help me learn from people’s past mistakes and successes.
What’s your favorite film and why?
I like Bad Boys 2 with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. It has a lot of good humor, fun, a lot of action. It’s a cool, make you feel good movie.
What do you do in your spare time?
I like to hang out with my kids, play in the yard, and go to the beach.
What’s the best advice you ever received?
It was from my grandfather, he said “buy bonds and keep your overhead low”.
What are your aspirations in life?
The biggest thing would be to take care of my kids, make sure they get a good education. Also, keep my wife happy, keep my patients happy, and just have fun. Save money so we get to enjoy it as we get older.
What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
I have been in practice for 22 years and still going super strong. I have one of the biggest practices in the state of Washington and I am rewarded for that. So, my biggest thing is keeping focused on that.
How could you improve your business?
Being more organized and more efficient. We are constantly working on that. When you work on efficiency and organization you feel better and you become more organized, creating vacuum.
What’s your favorite thing about working in your industry?
My favorite thing about working in the chiropractic industry is that we see results very quickly in people. It’s an amazing thing that happens.
What motivates you every day?
The drive to get sick people well, to see them happy. That’s what gets me up in the morning. I want to get new patients that are sick and suffering and see them change.
What can you look forward to in the future?
My kids growing up, having fun, a little more free time. To do all of that while still getting patients well just not on such an intense scale.
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
If you can’t afford it in cash don’t buy it.
What’s one piece of advice you can share with others?
One piece of advice, especially in business, is keep your overhead low and keep organized.
What’s your biggest pet peeve?
People that you have to tell over and over again, how to do the same thing.
