Meet The Team
Chiropractor Susan Cosgrove D.C.
I was born in Chicago and grew up in Evansville, Indiana.. I graduated from Indiana University in 1973 and from Logan Chiropractic College in St Louis Missouri in 1981. I've been practicing Chiropractic in Steuben County my entire professional life, for a short time in Wayland NY and since 1984 in Hornell NY.
I've had had over 3000 hours of continuing education in nutrition, children's chiropractic and shoulder, hip and knee injuries.
We, my husband and I, ( Dr Robert Smith, also a Chiropractor), have two daughters and three grand-dogs. In my spare time I play golf, badly, and ski only a little better. I have a special interest in healthy cooking and eating.
I was a very sick kid. I was allergic to everything. I coughed, sneezed, wheezed and slept. Slept.I could have slept 20 hours a day. I was pretty sick, in fact until I got out of college. I hurt my back, and was finally persuaded to go to my friend's doctor. He did a very gentle examination, took x-rays and adjusted my spine. Not only did it not hurt, it felt good, and I started to feel better. I started to feel better than I EVER felt.In fact, my breathing started to get better. I was no longer sensitive to smoke and perfume and dust and every other chemical.
Did I mention that this doctor was a Chiropractor? My life immediately took a right turn and I went to Chiropractic College myself.
When my daughter began having the same symptoms I did---I knew what to do. I adjusted her. She's now a personal trainer and grew up taking advantage of a very different lifestyle than I did.
Now I have lots of folks coming to see me for their breathing, headaches, foot and knee pain, sleeplessness and back pain. I have the best job in the world. Everybody gets better.
Chiropractor Kevin Hagen D.C.
I graduated from the University of Iowa in 2012 with a bachelors in Health and Human Physiology with an emphasis on sport rehabilitation, psychology of the injured athlete, and nutrition. In 2016 I graduated from New York Chiropractic College as class Vice President and Liaison of the Rochester clinic. I spent most of my educational time researching functional movement and treatment for golf, running, hockey, and soccer.
As a chiropractor I am passionate about the functionality and performance of my patients. I treat more than just athletes. More than half of my patients are not, or have never been athletes. In addition to manual adjustments, I like to focus on providing extensive myofascial treatment. In my experience, results last much longer and require fewer follow ups. I can also treat more than just your back. A large portion of treatments in our office are for shoulders and hips!
In my spare time you can find me working out in the gym or pursuing outdoor activities. I also teach Anatomy and Physiology and several courses at Bryant and Stratton College in Rochester.
Chiropractor Kristin Bezek D.C.
We will soon be welcoming a new chiropractor to our office! We can't wait for her to join our practice and help serve you, our amazing community.
Dr. Kristin Bezek was born and raised in Rochester, NY. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic from Northeast College of Health Sciences (formerly New York Chiropractic College) in November 2016. She completed her B.S. in Exercise Science at the University of Buffalo in 2013. Dr. Kristin treats the body as a whole, utilizing her knowledge of human anatomy and biomechanics to bring optimal function to the body. Her goal is to allow each one of her patients to continue to do what they love and not let pain (or aging) get in the way. Although she sees all types of patients, she brings a specialty in pediatrics and pregnancy to our office.
Outside of the office, Dr. Kristin enjoys being outside as much as possible! She enjoys running, skiing, and hiking. When she can't be outside moving you can find her in the gym lifting, rock climbing, or practicing yoga. She believes movement is the key factor to health, so she does her best to practice what she preaches!
Justine Valiquette M.S.
Nutrition Response Testing Practitioner
I have always been passionate about health and wellness. I grew up watching my mom, Dr. Cosgrove, help countless people with a single-minded determination and I grew ever more confident that I should follow in her footsteps. I spent many years working as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor and finally decided to pursue a more formal path. I obtained my Master of Science in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in 2018, incorporated a Nutrition Response Testing certification, and have been working with nutrition clients ever since.
My goal is to help each of my clients find their own unique path toward better health. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to wellness. I strive to facilitate education, empower clients to make their own choices, and help support them in any way I can. My training, clinical experience, and constant and continued education allow me to provide unique, customized nutrition programs that help augment my client's eating and lifestyle habits. Improvement is the goal, even if it's just a little step in the right direction.
Whether you are new to nutrition or just need a quick modification to your program, I would be pleased to work with you to help you on your path to better health. You are welcome to order supplements or schedule a visit for your nutrition evaluation.
Massage Therapist Autumn Laurens
I am a local girl at heart, I love this area! I graduated from Jasper-Troupsburg and also attended BOCES Cosmetology program. Following graduation, I sought my professional license and worked as a cosmetologist for several months. Although I love cosmetology, I realized it was not my calling.
I decided to further my training and enrolled in the Onondaga School of Therapeutic Massage, where I completed one hundred hours of clinical massage, graduating in 2021. I then interned at the excellent Respite Therapy in Canisteo and obtained my professional license in New York and in Pennsylvania.
Working as a massage therapist has been a great experience. I love to get to know my clients and communicate with them regarding their needs. I strive to help each client relax overused muscles, employ an active range of motion, and restore proper body mechanics. Joining Healthsource Chiropractic and Wellness has allowed me to reach more people. Now I'm part of a team of professionals bringing their skills to help individuals improve their lives, restore their health, and live pain-free! My favorite part of massage therapy is when my clients feel better after their session than when they walked in.
When I am not improving the lives of my clients, I love spending time with my husband David, volunteering with church youth ministries, officiating track, and field, or participating in local drama productions.
