His political ambitions were set aside when he found his calling as a military reservist. The field medical training inspired Dr. Curtis to change his undergraduate major at UCLA and focus on becoming a doctor. He attended medical school and trained in general surgery at UCLA.
Thereafter, he attended law school at UC Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. He did this not only to gain a broader educational experience, but to attach himself to two disciplines for the benefit of his patients and clients.
This is something Dr. Curtis feels is a major pillar of his practice at the Medical Center of Marin Urgent Care Clinic & Health Care Clinic.
Prior to joining Medical Center of Marin, Dr. Cipa was the Director of Rehabilitation of a large medical center in San Francisco where he managed a multidisciplinary team of acupuncturists, physical therapists and massage therapists, all while working with orthopedic surgeons and clinicians on patient care. His chiropractic techniques include diversified, Activator and ART™ (Active Release Technique).
Dr. Cipa’s main focus is in orthopedics, rehabilitation and exercise as an adjunct to utilizing evidence-based chiropractic care at the Medical Center of Marin Urgent Care Clinic & Health Care Clinic. During the winter, Dr. Cipa is an active member of the National Ski Patrol and patrols Sugar Bowl in North Lake Tahoe. During the spring and summer months, you will often find him riding his hardtail 29er with a large group of local mountain bike enthusiasts in Marin County.
