For over 20 years, Dr. Tinsley has stressed that the word "doctor" means teacher. After regularly achieving the Dean's list and receiving three separate academic scholarships, Dr. Tinsley felt that it was important to share his knowledge with his patients. He has always taken time to educate his patients and promote physical activity, proper nutrition, stress management and emotional well-being, and adequate rest. He has emphasized treatments and therapies which promote independence, encouraging his patients to take an active part in their care, and not only to get better, but to keep getting better.
Dr. Tinsley put himself through school by working in sales, where he was a district and regional sales leader. He also worked as an office manager to pay for his full-time undergraduate and professional graduate education. He then opened his own solo practice within months of graduating, starting from scratch, and practiced for two decades. During that time he was an active member of the community participating on several boards of directors and serving as president of many business groups.
Dr. Tinsley was born and raised in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. A career in health, fitness, and wellness was a natural choice because of his interests in chiropractic, orthopedics, neurology, physical therapy, fitness, sports medicine and nutrition. He attended undergraduate school in Pittsburgh and received his professional graduate degree in Lombard, Illinois before returning to his hometown to practice. Since 1997, he has been married to his incredible wife, Connie, a group fitness instructor. He is also the proud father of Monica and Kevin.
After speaking to his patients one-at-a-time for over 20 years, Dr. Tinsley has taken that same teaching philosophy and applied it to audiences of several hundred. More than 95% of audience members commit to making positive lifestyle changes as a result of his presentations. These changes make it possible to achieve excellence in their personal and professional lives.
