We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves to you.

Drs. Robert and Danielle Kauffman came to the region in 1989 after graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic. After opening our first office in Merrillville, and practicing together for 6 years, Kauffman Chiropractic branched out to Lakes of the Four Seasons in 1995. The practices and the area experienced tremendous growth during this time.

In the year 2000 Drs. Robert and Danielle Kauffman built a building at 7620 East 109th Ave, in the new town of Crown Point, on the corner of Randolph and 109th. Kauffman Chiropractic in Merrillville followed soon after in 2002, building a twin building on 84th Drive off of Broadway, between Applebee’s and Meijer. Whether you’re on your way to or from work, or have some time during the day, there is always an office conveniently located for your needs.

The Kauffman’s have managed to balance family and careers staying actively involved in school, church and their kid’s sports activities. Their children Nick, Kristina and Michael have decided to follow in their parents’ footsteps and become chiropractors. Nick and Kristina are presently attending Palmer College of Chiropractic, and Michael is finishing his undergraduate studies at IU Bloomington.”Our offices and lifestyle are family friendly, and all of our children have been treated with chiropractic care since they were little.”

Dr. Robert H. Kauffman

Chiropractor – Merrillville
Dr. Kauffman is a native of the Detroit area and was introduced to chiropractic care at a young age through effective treatment of numerous sports injuries. After getting good results with chiropractic care and some good advice from his father, a chiropractic patient himself, he chose chiropractic as a career. He was enticed by the challenge of getting people better, especially athletes, without the use of drugs or surgery. He excelled in the sciences and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from Michigan State University, in their Pre-Med program.

He was accepted into Palmer College of Chiropractic, the oldest and largest Chiropractic College in the world. It is at Palmer where the two chiropractors met.

Chiropractor – Crown Point
Dr. Kauffman is a native of Quebec City, Canada. While pursuing a degree in pre-med at Laval University in Quebec, she was introduced to a life long friend of her mothers who had a small chiropractic practice. This woman took the time to explain chiropractic to her and how she could have a great practice but also a home life and family, the seed was planted and Dr. Danielle soon was applying to Palmer College. The challenges the awaited her in coming to a new country, learning a new language, graduating from Palmer and eventually becoming an American Citizen helped her become the excellent chiropractor that she is today.
