Meet Our Practitioners
Courtney Hammer, D.C.
Dr. Courtney Hammer first discovered the effectiveness of chiropractic when she started suffering from daily headaches in high school. After months with no relief, she tried chiropractic care, and, within two weeks, her headaches were gone! Even though she was born and raised in southern Oregon, she fell in love with the Pacific Northwest while attending college on Whidbey Island. After graduating from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, she returned to the Seattle area. Skilled in manual manipulation and activator adjustments, patients appreciate her gentle and effective touch. When she is not in clinic, Dr. Hammer loves spending time outside, going on hikes with her family, and taking her dogs for long walks.

Dr. Sipress earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at University of Western States in Portland, OR, with a Masters in Exercise and Sports Science. He began pursuit of a career in sports medicine at Eastern Washington University, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. He was also an active member of the Rehab2Performance club, and worked as part of the Sports Medicine Team for local professional and amateur sporting events. Dr. Sipress received a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP) distinction in 2016. When it comes to patient care, Dr. Sipress integrates the most current manual therapies with specific rehabilitative exercises, advanced physiotherapy techniques, and up-to-date research. In his spare time, Dr. Sipress can be found enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest with his wife, Andalyn, and young daughter, Astalena, on local hiking and mountain biking trails, working out, or simply spending time at home with a good book.

Dr. Baldwin moved to the Northwest after graduating from the Chiropractic College of Life University in 1991 (Marietta, GA). He soon opened his own clinic (Baldwin Chiropractic) in Snohomish, WA – where he now cares for patients as Clearview Wellness Center, PLLC. Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of problems created by the misalignment of vertebrae, he treats the full spine using a variety of techniques (from gentle to firm), which have been perfected over his twenty plus years of experience. A real adventurer, Dr. Baldwin has enjoyed challenging himself in mountain and glacier climbing (has summited Mt. Rainer and Mt. Baker numerous times), hang gliding, and even boxing, including two professional fights and 28 amateur fights as a light-middle weight. When not at the clinic, he enjoys horseback trail riding, flying as a private and IFR-certified pilot (specializing in mountain canyon high-density altitude back country flying), working and playing in the outdoors, and photographing wildlife on his property.

John Meister, Computer Scientist, Snohomish, WA~
"The personal interaction, care, and empathy that Dr. Baldwin provides are outstanding. Other chiropractors may use similar techniques, but so many are rushed that they simply don't address all the issues properly. Dr. Baldwin gets to know you and your health issues and works with you for the most effective treatment. Over the last 25 years, I've been to at least a dozen chiropractors -- Dr. Baldwin is at the very top of the list of the ones I have recommended and will visit."
