Dr. Monte Hessler is a 1985 graduate of Southern California University of Health Sciences. He has practiced chiropractic in the Phoenix area for over 25 years. He has always carried out his chiropractic practice in multidisciplinary offices with surgeons, internal medicine doctors, and pain management physicians.
Dr. Hessler has been the team chiropractor for the NBA Phoenix Suns and WNBA Phoenix Mercury since 1999. Since 2002, Dr. Hessler has provided chiropractic services to the MLB San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers. Additionally, he has been a member of the traveling PGA Tour sports medicine staff since 2004.
Along with a busy office patient practice, Dr. Hessler provides consultation services in the medical-legal arena, as well as to the State of Arizona Board of Chiropractic Examiners.
National health services organization IASIS Healthcare, the Phoenix Suns, and the Phoenix Mercury basketball teams have joined forces to open a multi-specialty clinic.
The $7.9 million, 28,000 square-foot clinic is located inside what was formerly the Phoenix Suns Athletic Club at 230 S. 3rd St. in Phoenix.
The clinic is the cornerstone of a partnership between the three organizations. It will provide access to healthcare in the same place where the teams’ athletes will have their own services performed.
Carl Whitmer, CEO of IASIS Healthcare, says the clinic “fills a void… bringing vital healthcare services to those who live, work, and attend school in downtown Phoenix.”
The clinic will offer diagnostic imaging services that include downtown Phoenix’s only MRI machine, equipped with Ambient Design lighting and sound technology that aims to make patients more comfortable and relaxed during their procedure, as well as CT and digital X-rays.
The facility will also offer medical specialties such as cardiology, dermatology, primary care, women’s care, dentistry, podiatry, ophthalmology, chiropractic care, sports behavioral medicine, orthopedics, sports medicine, and physical therapy, essentially making it a one-stop-shop for most healthcare needs.
Phoenix Suns President Jason Rowley said in a statement that patients will sometimes undergo treatment alongside some of the team’s star players.
