A Chance Encounter Changed His Future

Dr. Omar P. Vela, or Dr. O.P. as he is known to his patients and friends, has grown up in Edinburg all his life. While now in practice many years, his journey to becoming a chiropractor involves an interesting twist.

He was serving a subpoena for medical records to Dr. Carlson, the previous owner of Patterson Chiropractic Clinic. Dr. Carlson engaged him in a conversation about his future and offered him his first adjustment. Dr. Vela was “hooked” after that experience.

Chasing His Dreams of Chiropractic

Dr. Vela already knew he had a gift for working with his hands as well as a strong desire to help people. His “chance” encounter with Dr. Carlson helped him to combine those two things and he decided to pursue a career in chiropractic care.

I feel like becoming a chiropractor was a gift I was given.”Dr. Vela

He graduated from Texas Chiropractic College in 1999 and joined Patterson Chiropractic Clinic in 2007. With his many years of practice, Dr. Vela is proud of their team’s success with helping people. “We’re the place to come to when you need a chiropractor.”

Embracing the Edinburg Community

When Dr. Vela is not seeing patients, he enjoys hunting and fishing with his family. He also has a passion for restoring old cars.
