Dr. Ray Saeedpour

(Chiropractic Physician)

Nashville native Dr. Ray Saeedpour (Chiropractor) developed an interest in chiropractic after seeing firsthand how it was able to improve health concerns that weren’t being addressed by traditional medicine because of its focus on symptoms. As a pre-med student at UT Knoxville, he interned at a integrated MD and chiropractic clinic and it was there that his skepticism about chiropractic dissolved. While seeing hundreds of patients who were seeking relief through chiropractic care Dr. Ray embraced that fact that integrated care among health professionals was the best way to provide truly comprehensive patient care.

In 1994, Dr. Saeedpour graduated from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville with a BA in Administration and a BS in Science. In 1998, Dr. Ray graduated from Life University School of Chiropractic with a doctorate in Chiropractic.

After practicing in another integrated Atlanta Clinic, Dr. Ray returned to his hometown of Nashville. Partnering with Dr. Gary Dunn, he became part of the Dunn Clinic team in 2000. Since then, the clinic has become one of only a few in Nashville to offer the latest cutting edge chiropractic technology.

Dunn Chiropractic was voted Nashville’s Best Chiropractic Clinic by the Nashville Scene in both 2007 and 2008 as well as the 2009 Toast of Music City readers poll. In the very near future, Dr. Saeedpour plans on finishing his goal of providing a HealthCare Center where Chiropractic Physicians, Medical Physicians, Physio Therapists, Massage Therapists, Acupucturists, Nutritionists, and Behavioral Health specialists can put their differences aside and focus on patient care.

Dr. Ray also enjoys motorcycles, fresh water and deep sea fishing, traveling abroad and golf.
