As a Chiropractor, Dr. Elise Nolte provides a wealth of knowledge on health and wellness. She enjoys working with families as she uses a ‘whole person’ approach that is individualized. Her passion is to educate, assist, and treat families to achieve a better quality of life. Dr. Elise believes this optimal healing starts from the moment one is in the womb. She is very detail-oriented and understands the value of natural care.

Dr. Elise attended the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities to study biology. She then went to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minnesota to pursue her Doctorate of Chiropractic. Along with completing her doctorate degree, Dr. Elise pursued her passion for treating pregnant women, infants, and children. She did this by seeking extra training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is Webster Certified through the ICPA to help women through their pregnancy as well.

More on Dr. Elise’s background: She grew up in La Crosse, Wisconsin with a wonderful family that always prioritized health and wellness. She knew that her path one day would be enriching the well-being of others. Dr. Elise enjoys being outside hiking and mountain biking with her fiancé Zach and two dogs, Copper and Henry. Zach and she relocated from the Black Hills of South Dakota after a couple of years and are now excited to make Bend their new home!

For the past several years, Dr. Zach Bergman was living and practicing near his hometown in Rapid City, SD. Recently deciding to relocate after calling the Black Hills home for most of his life, he is excited to start a new adventure in Bend, OR. He enjoys teaching and working with patients as they get out of pain and most importantly stay out of pain. Dr. Zach strives to get people back to doing what they love and believes strongly that patients should never accept pain as normal.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Zach enjoys being outside hiking, hunting, and mountain biking – all of which he does with his fiancé Elise and two dogs, Henry and Copper. Several days a week, Dr. Zach can be found staying fit by running and weight training. In addition to being active, Dr. Zach is a huge component of chiropractic to stay healthy, even getting adjusted frequently himself.

Dr. Zach enjoys each day in the clinic working with patients. He will focus on finding the root cause of your problem and give you the tools you need to be pain-free. He looks forward to calling Bend home and continuing the standard of care everyone has become accustomed to at Point Chiropractic.
