Meet Dr. Christopher Calarco of Accident Treatment Centers

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Christopher Calarco.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Dr. Christopher. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I graduated from National University of Health Sciences in Chicago with the class of 2010, earning my Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine. Eager to start practicing, my first job was at a clinic near Millennium Park. I quickly realized that, although I was making a positive impact in patients lives, there was a limit to how many people I could treat. I was not satisfied with the practice and needed to help more people.

That was about 4 years ago, I started my first medical network which has evolved today into Accident Treatment Centers. ATC supports about 28 clinics that I hand-selected in the Chicagoland area and 4 in NorthWest Indiana. We tailor our healing services to those who have suffered from auto accidents, work-related injuries, and sports injuries. What we have come to understand is that accidents are frightening, you need assistance with your health and legal guidance, we are here to help you with both. Our goal is to get you back on your feet in the quickest amount of time while providing the highest quality of care.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Usually, when something is worth it, it won’t be easy. There have been a lot of learning experiences along the way but every obstacle has made me stronger in business. The biggest struggle is probably the ever-changing realm of marketing, really transitioning to Digital Media and launching a new website this month has been exhilarating and exhausting. Another important aspect of business I’ve learned from my medical network is that you have to run a tight ship, you need a team that believes in what you are creating as much as you are. Staff you can trust is very important and I’ve been lucky enough to work with what I believe to be the best team out there.

Please tell us about Accident Treatment Centers.
Accident Treatment Centers is a healthcare network that helps you deal with the steps that follow after a car accident, work-related injury or a sports injury. The most important way we help is by providing quality care to those who are in pain, getting the treatment you need quickly is important to cure immediate injuries and prevents long-term damage to your body and mind. Our team of specialists includes physical therapy, chiropractic, and primary care physicians with the region’s best specialists and imaging centers (MRI, CT, EMG/NCV, and Diagnostic Ultrasound).

If our patients have a legal case on their hands we also will work with their lawyers or assist them with finding the right legal team to settle the case really getting our patients the compensation they deserve.

When I think of what I’m most proud about ATC for accomplishing it would be the seamless care we provide our patients, our case managers care for our patients from the start to settlement and beyond.

If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
Nothing. It’s all about learning, every day we get to start over with a fresh mind. The goal is to keep improving each day, growing with the flow and if something feels like it needs to start over we do our best at ATC to rework it until it feels right.
