Matthew Goodrich, DC

As a child, he suffered from a number of health problems including allergies, asthma and chronic sinus infections. As he grew older, he also witnessed many of his family members suffer from chronic health conditions as well.
Traditional medicine didn’t seem to improve his own ailments or the conditions of his family. But what did he discover was the profound impact that chiropractic had on his own life and overall health. With the combination of Chiropractic, eating quality foods and regular exercise, he saw the change in himself and was excited to share his knowledge and experience with others.

Yeonjoo Lee, DC, AP-C, RMSK
Dr. Lee is a chiropractor who practiced in New Mexico for 24 years before coming to the Rogue Valley. She has spent the last 16 years in integrative medicine allowing her a unique opportunity to be part of a team approach. This approach allows tailored care for each patient to have the most optimum outcome. This also allows the providers to address the patient as a whole instead of a fragmented approach that ends up not only in more expensive care but also less satisfying for both patients and providers.
Her practice has evolved from taking care of large population of soft tissue injury cases in Albuquerque to focus on chronic fatigue patients with nutrition and herbal medicine in Santa Fe till 2000. She moved back to Albuquerque in 2001 to join the first Integrative Medicine group in New Mexico to function as a Chiropractor, a holistic primary care provider, and later to focus on pain medicine with broader scope of practice employing various types of injections and become certified in diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.
She is excited to bring her experiences to enhance and complement the care given Complete Care.
When outside of the office, Dr. Lee enjoys hiking, rock climbing, and backpacking and looks forward to exploring the nature of Oregon.
