He created an award-winning practice that has invested in assembling a physician team that has over 50 years of combined clinical experience. He passionately sought to create the most comprehensive experience for patients providing a unique, synergistic blend of services that typically are not conveniently in one facility- including Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Medical Massage Therapy, and Lifestyle and Health Coaching. Synergy was envisioned to be comprehensive, current, upbeat, and family oriented employing, a team to provide a “Ritz Carlton” experience. Many patients are so surprised when they see the practice has so much approaches and technology to help them solve their pain.
Dr. Janowitz completed his undergraduate studies at University of Florida and subsequently the prestigious Logan College of Chiropractic. He obtained two Bachelor’s Degrees, one in Psychology and another in Human Biology, as well as his Doctorate in Chiropractic in 1999.
His focus is on family corrective chiropractic care, non-surgical disc decompression care, deep tissue laser therapy for extremity pain, TMJD, and automobile injuries.
Seeing the need to help those injured in motor vehicle accidents, Dr. Janowitz earned an additional intensive certification in whiplash and car accident trauma with Dr. Croft from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. Dr. Janowitz is active in the medical- legal arena often educating attorney, paralegals, and patients on the devastating effects of car accident injuries.
Additionally, since struggling with his own spinal issues of scoliosis and disc problems as a young man, he has developed protocols to specially help patients out with these painful conditions. The result of these personal health challenges created a desire for Dr. Janowitz to want to become a Chiropractor at age 9. Dr. Janowitz enjoys working with local Orthopedic surgeons in co-managing complicated disc injury cases by providing non-surgical spinal decompression therapy as a means to avoid drug therapy, epidural injections, or back surgery.
Dr. Janowitz also enjoys co-managing care with local Dentists for conditions associated with jaw pain called, TMJD. Dr. Janowitz has taken additional training on helping patients with this painful condition and utilizes several different techniques including deep tissue laser therapy, muscle release techniques, home care, and specific gentle adjustments to the TMJ to restore function and eliminate pain.

Dr. Barry Sitkoff | Chiropractic Physician
Dr. Barry Sitkoff is a native New Yorker born in Queens and raised in Long Island. He completed his undergraduate work at the State University of New York at Stony Brook where he earned his bachelor's degree in English literature, one of his passions, and had a concentration of life sciences classes in preparation for his transition to Chiropractic College. Dr. Sitkoff graduated from New York Chiropractic College in 1998 and has been actively serving patients since then.
Dr. Sitkoff’s personal journey with Chiropractic was one of tragedy and triumph. When he was 16 years old his compact car was hit head-on by a drunk driver at a high rate of speed. He suffered severe, life-altering injuries including a brain injury and multiple disc injuries. After seeing neurologists, neurosurgeons, and orthopedic surgeons with little relief, the idea of surgery was being tossed around. Luckily, he had a classmate whose father was a chiropractor, so his mother suggested giving it a try since nothing else was helping. Not knowing what a chiropractor was he went reluctantly, and it changed the course of his life. He got pain relief without surgery and was able to get back to doing things teenagers do. So much so that he changed his career path. Before his accident, he was set on becoming a medical doctor but following this experience he knew he wanted to be able to help people experience the healing power of chiropractic.
Because of his own personal background, Dr. Sitkoff focused his clinical care on the care and treatment of personal injury patients involved in car accidents for over 2 decades and gravitated to a more functional and biomechanical approach to chiropractic. He furthered his focus on family care, disc care, pregnancy care, and wellness care.
Dr. Sitkoff moved to Florida in 1998 after marrying his best friend and college sweetheart Susan. Susan is a Hydrogeologist that worked in the environmental field cleaning up sites for NASA for almost 2 decades and now for The City of Orlando. They have two talented children, Cody and Leah. Cody attends the University of Central Florida studying materials engineering on a full academic scholarship and Leah attends high school. Both children are highly competitive archers holding numerous state and national titles between the two of them.
When Dr. Sitkoff is not in the office he volunteers his time to coach archery and travel to numerous tournaments with his family. He also loves camping with his family, cooking, and saltwater aquariums.
