Dr. Michael Jerez -- Palm Desert Office

Michael Jerez, DC was raised in Brooklyn, New York.

Working at an early age at his father’s deli or helping his mother sweeping up at her salon, he learned strong work ethics and the importance of serving people. 

He was always attracted to exercise and working out and soon found his passion for fitness.

Continuing his desire to serve people and love for his country, he enlisted in the United States Military, becoming a Navy Corpsman attached to Several Marine Corps Units with numerous deployments and a tour in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom, 2003.  

After suffering several injuries, which left him with neurological deficits to his right arm, he began receiving Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatments. The relief he found with complimentary medicine gave Dr. Jereza better appreciation to the Holistic Approach in caring for patients after noticing major improvements and a decrease in his symptoms. 

With this new awareness, Dr. Jerez knew that he had to evolve in order to become more effective at service to his patients. This evolution led him to begin the journey to his degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic in 2009. 

Even during his studies Dr. Jerez was already working with patients, helping them with rehabilitation workout routines and weight management.

Dr. Jerez successfully graduated with a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Whittier, California in 2014 and is now practicing at the Center for Health in Yucca Valley.

Besides seeing his own patients in the Hi Desert, Dr. Jerez is in charge of the Cellular detox as well as the exercise rehabilitation department at the Center for Health.
