Meet the owners of Roman Family Chiropractic, Dr. Randy and Tricia Roman. “We are here to touch lives & change spirits and surpass expectations by delivering a WOW factor & helping people release what is great within.”
Q: What inspired you or led you to your current career?
A: Tricia- We wanted to make a difference in the community & do something different. Most chiropractic offices you go in, you get adjusted and then leave. We wanted to be very thorough and do evaluations and get to the issue of what people are coming in for. What symptoms do they have? How can we make a difference to get them to lead a more active and healthier lifestyle and stay healthy so they can still hike until they’re 80-90 years old and feel great and have energy? We just wanted to be that change and be the 5-star of chiropractic health.
Randy- It’s really about surpassing expectations a lot of repositioning. We have some cultural characteristics and one of them is to deliver WOW to people. We want people to leave here feeling empowered and hopeful. It’s not a normal hope, it’s not up to me, it’s releasing what is great within YOU. So that is a different repositioning too, it is already inside of you, but I’m just releasing it. The culture in our office is also big, we have a really great team of 13 people right now and Dr. Gunyan recently joined us and is bringing a whole new dynamic to our practice. When it comes to chiropractic, many people just focus on the physical realm. It is the most apparent, but it’s not always the underlying cause, so the physical is definitely important but there is another component to us which is the emotional component (our thoughts and what we tell ourselves). I always tell people, “Your life becomes the story you tell yourself.” And in doing so people realize the better one feels the better choices one makes. Everything here is intentional to create an atmosphere that is giving freedom in discipline. We now offer an even more specific tailoring to our clients with Dr. Gunyan here because he has brought in a new dimension through testing. We are doing bloodwork, nutritional testing, hormonal testing, urinalysis, which adds to the comprehensive dynamic, because we’ve always been big on the trauma (physical) and emotional (thoughts & feelings) but now we’ve added in the toxins which gives such specificity and allows us to dial in for each individual which is unlike anything else and I think really sets us apart in the marketplace.

Q: What is your favorite thing or something unique about The Grand Valley?
A: Tricia- I love the mountains nearby, hiking and the Monument
Randy- I love the accessibility – you can go to dinner and then go mountain biking in the same 3-hour period. The access to wilderness is incredible, you can hang out with people or you can be up on the Mesa in 40 minutes and not be around anyone. I like feeling like an explorer, like I’m the first one here.
Q: Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 years?
A: Tricia- In 5 years I see us slowing down a bit, not working as much, being outdoors more & relaxing more.
Randy- In 5 years we’ll have all of the kids out of the house so I see us probably downsizing and having a cabin on the Mesa and a condo on the beach somewhere. We’ll have a little more flexibility so it would be nice to do winter there and summer here. Our office will still be up and running and having a larger team but just working on a different schedule.
Q: What is something interesting that most people don’t know about you?
A: Tricia- A lot of people don’t know that I went to culinary school in Atlanta. I also used to be a massage therapist and trained with the Miami Dolphins training camp down in Florida and I was also on an episode of 21 Jump Street
