Originally born in Detroit, Dr. Covault spent most of his childhood in the river city of Marietta, Ohio.
While attending The Ohio State University and working on his Medical School pre-requisite courses, Dr. Covault decided that instead of pursing his Medical Degree he wanted to take a more proactive route into health care.

With his back ground of Nutrition and Exercise paired with his education and training from New York Chiropractic College, Dr. Covault focuses delivering his patients not only with Chiropractic but also total body health and wellness. Dr. Covault believes that nutrition, exercise and Chiropractic is a three fold route to help patients maximize living.
