DC Interviews Dr. Patrick Delamere of the N.Y. Guard

When Patrick Delamere graduated from the Atlantic States Chiropractic Institute in 1962, the chiropractic profession was in a place quite different than it is now.A handful of states, including New York, which was home to Atlantic States, had yet to have licensing laws in effect for doctors of chiropractic.New York was the location of not one, but three operating chiropractic schools: Atlantic States, the Chiropractic Institute of New York and the Columbia College of Chiropractic.And the American Medical Association was in the process of embarking on its conspiratorial plan to "contain and eliminate" the spread of chiropractic.

Chiropractic survived the turbulent times of the 1960s, and so did Dr. Delamere.Since his graduation 44 years ago, he has become a symbol of the profession's progress in the state of New York, maintaining private practices in the Bronx and (later) Mahopac while furthering his education and training.Since 1998, he also has served as a member of the all-volunteer New York Guard, providing care to troops at Camp Smith, a training center in Cortland Manor.In 2005, he was promoted to the rank of commander of the 244th Medical Clinic at Camp Smith, making him the first doctor of chiropractic to be in command of a military unit in the United States.
So, how does it feel to be one of the highest ranking chiropractors in the military?This is one of the many questions Dynamic Chiropractic posed to Dr. Delamere in a recent interview.
Dynamic Chiropractic (DC): How did you get involved with the New York Guard?
Dr. Patrick Delamere (PD): In 1998, I visited the headquarters of the New York Army Guard at Camp Smith in Cortland Manor.I met with the chief surgeon, and after reading my CV, he decided, based upon my years of experience and because I had taken some postgraduate courses at the New York Medical College, to place me in the medical unit at Camp Smith.I was commissioned as a captain in the Medical Services Unit.
