Dr. Patricia Kiser, D.C.
CEO and Director of Care at University Chiropractic
Dr. Patricia Kiser-Cohen, a native of San Mateo, California, attended Aragon High School and developed a deep interest in healing. Her fascination with the human body and its afflictions, such as pain, disease, and diminished quality of life, led her to explore various holistic methods of treatment. Although she was active in high school sports, including cheerleading, horseback riding, and soccer, she suffered from back pain after fracturing her lower back. Her search for effective pain relief led her to chiropractic care, which she was introduced to by a personal mentor. Dr. Kiser then interned in a sports-medicine chiropractic clinic the following summer that catered to various professional athletic organizations, which further fueled her passion for chiropractic care.
To pursue her career goals, Dr. Kiser pursued pre-medicine and earned a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology from Patten University before enrolling in Chiropractic College. In 1994, she obtained her Doctorate in Chiropractic Care, and after gaining three years of clinical experience, she founded her own practice in 1997. Dr. Kiser has worked with hundreds of babies and children of all ages, helping them overcome various conditions such as colic, constipation, latching issues, asthma, and allergies, including her own son when he was an infant. Her healing abilities have earned her clients from all over the Bay Area, who benefit from her extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology. She can quickly identify the source of pain and provide immediate relief, helping her clients achieve their optimum level of health.

Dominique was born in Washington state but has lived in Northern California most of her life. Her interest in holistic wellness and alternative therapies started at a young age. She has always had a passion for dance and art, which sparked her interest in the mind-body connection and the importance of maintaining physical and mental balance. As she grew older, she began to explore different modalities for achieving optimal health, including Ayurveda.
In 2012, Dominique obtained her massage practitioner certification, which gave her a deep understanding of the muscular and skeletal systems. She then went on to pursue an undergraduate degree in Integrated Health with a minor in Ayurveda Wellness, where she learned about the body’s natural healing abilities and the importance of preventative care.
After completing her undergraduate studies, Dominique decided to pursue a doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine and received her degree from Life Chiropractic College West. Her education gave her the knowledge and skills to help patients achieve optimal health by addressing the root cause of their health issues.
