Meet Dr. Julio Cruz Gonzalez

Chiropractor Indianapolis, Dr. Julio Cruz GonzalesBorn and raised in Puerto Rico, Dr. Julio moved to Virginia at 13. After completing high school in the states, he moved back to PR. There, Dr. Julio attended the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico on a full ride. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Initially, Dr. Julio wanted to pursue a career in medicine as he had a desire to help people. He didn’t like that the medical approach involved opioids and surgery. Dr. Julio wanted to do something different.

Discovering Chiropractic

Not sure what path he would follow, Dr. Julio contacted a good friend of his who was in chiropractic college. After she told him more, Dr. Julio started doing some research on this type of natural health care.

I fell in love with the idea of helping others through the use of my hands only.”

Deciding then to pursue a career in chiropractic, Dr. Julio applied to New York Chiropractic College in upstate New York. Not knowing anyone, he arrived on a snowy day with four pieces of luggage and three backpacks. Though he didn’t know anyone there, he wanted to achieve his goal and dream.

Education and Experience

While he was working toward his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Julio served for a year as vice president in the Student Government Association. At the end of his ninth trimester, he applied for a clinical internship. He had two options: Washington, D.C. and Indianapolis.

Though his mom lived in Virginia, he wanted to be spontaneous, so he chose Indianapolis. He applied for the internship and got it. He worked at the VA hospital downtown. After graduation, Dr. Julio worked for a chiropractor, but it wasn’t an ideal fit for him.

He came across Dr. Lucas and applied here at Eagle Creek Chiropractic. “It’s the best decision I could have ever made.”
