About Us

Carrie Goettsch, DC

Dr. Goettsch started Brighton Hill Chiropractic, PC in 1981. She is a 1980 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa and a 1976 graduate of Ithaca College (BFA music) where she majored in voice and developed a love for composing and arranging music.

Besides overseeing the day to day business responsibilities and caring for patients at BHC, Dr. Goettsch is on the Board of Directors of the New York State Chiropractic Association (NYSCA) and is past president and previously a delegate of the central NY chapter (District 12) of  NYSCA. She was also a member of the Excellus BCBS Chiropractic Advisory Committee for many years. Dr. Goettsch completed the Primary Spine Care Specialist program, sponsored by Excellus BCBS, in 2014.

Dr. Goettsch strives for ongoing cooperation between insurers, primary care providers and chiropractors. The safety, efficacy and patient satisfaction data supporting the benefits of chiropractic care (spinal manipulation), especially in the acute stage, has the potential to create significant public health cost savings when evidence based guidelines for acute low back pain are more universally implemented. Dr. Goettsch would like to see this happen in her professional lifetime!

Career highlights include volunteering chiropractic services in the Dominican Republic on a 9-day mission trip in 1993, serving as treating chiropractor with the 15th Maccabiah Games in Israel in 1997 and with the Maccabiah Pan American Games in Chile in 2003, serving as team chiropractor for SUNY Geneseo and RIT women's volleyball teams 2003-2006 and singing at the White House in Washington, D.C. in December 2002, 2004 and 2008 as a member of the Master’s Touch Chorale. Dr. Goettsch also sings with the Syracuse Chorale and was a member of the Syracuse Symphony Pops Chorus and SSO Gospel Choir.

Dr. Goettsch and husband Marty, a mental health nurse with the VA, have three grown daughters, love boating, swimming, fishing and gardening and reside on 28 acres in LaFayette, NY with Weimaraners Heidi and Alex.
