Joe O’Tool, D.C.


Chiropractor tells about private practice and community leadership

His Facebook page says “Life is short. Live well, live full.” Joe O’Tool, D.C., is living his Facebook motto as he partners with his brother Sam O’Tool, D.C.; his wife Angie, who helps with marketing and bookkeeping; a nutritionist; and massage therapist.  Together they strive to be “The Trusted Leader in Health, Prevention, and Performance” in Des Moines,  Iowa. He’s achieved early success in his private practice by improving his patients’ health and providing leadership within his community.

Dr. O’Tool graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2013 and has already expanded his private practice to three locations around the Des Moines area.  He says Palmer College set him up for success through the business and leadership programs available on campus. While at Palmer, he served as president of the Palmer Campus Guides and was active in the Palmer Student Alumni Foundation,  the Iowa Club and was instrumental in starting the SACA Sports Council. He was also chosen to represent Palmer as a student at several political round-table discussions with local, state, and national politicians. He says it was opportunities like these that set him up to succeed in private practice.
