Dr. Tom Potisk


Dr. Tom has successfully run a group practice for  25 year and was voted Chiropractor of the Year in 2007 for Wisconsin.

Whether you live in Wisconsin or in Australia, Dr. Tom Potisk is the kind of chiropractor, man, father, husband, and friend you would like to know. Unassuming and modest, his passion is strong and his accomplishments are many. He is a leader of the best kind: by example. He sets an excellent standard for us all.

Kind, generous, industrious, and dedicated, he lives a balanced life while managing a very productive three doctor office. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 1984, interned with Dr. Larry Troxel before starting his practice in South Milwaukee, WI, U.S.A.
  • He has invested a great deal of time and resources for community programs including the YMCA, the local high school, veterans association and his Chamber of Commerce.
  • He has twice been recognized by the United States Military as “Patriotic Employer.”
  • President of the South Milwaukee Association of Commerce, Dr. Tom was the recipient of the “Outstanding Leadership and Effort” award.
  • Tom has maintained active memberships his local state organization (Wisconsin Chiropractic Association), the Christian Chiropractors Association, and The Gonstead Clinical Studies Society. Dr. Gregory Plaugher of the GCSS will soon be publishing a particularly exciting case study pertaining to one of Dr Tom’s patients with autism.
  • He has provided chiropractic to hundreds of patients during several mission trips to the Amazon, Belize, Costa Rica and Poland. A man of faith, Dr. Tom feels that these trips are an expression of God’s love that transcends his own faith community as an elder of St. Marcus Lutheran in Milwaukee, and touches many lives in places far from home.
  • Tom has had eight associate doctors with whom he has maintained a mentoring relationship during their time in his office and after they moved on in their careers. It is not uncommon for him to be on the phone with one of his prior associates giving and taking ideas on how to better serve patients. Of course, he also always finds time to provide adjustments to local chiropractors in need.
  • As an indication of the friendly kind of work environment Tom creates, it is worth noting that he has had the same office manager for all 21 years of practice. With the help of Dave Michel and Petty, Michel and Associates, Tom has been an excellent clinic director and manger. He is progressive in his chiropractic practice marketing and management, and works to continually reach out and promote chiropractic.
  • Tom has been happily married for many years to Sue Potisk and has three children. The family lives on a mini-farm a rural setting with a family “swimming hole” pond, and keeps busy tending to their organic garden, small flock of chickens, barn cats and their pig.


He is being called the “down-to-earth” doctor because of his family oriented country lifestyle and his simplistic, practical, and easy to implement health advice. He is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. He has hundreds of hours of post graduate training and is certified in nutritional counseling and wellness.

Dr. Tom has a number of books which published including Whole Health Healing.
