Dr. Marc S. Gottlieb

Chiropractic Physician

Graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri with Doctor of Chiropractic and Bachelor of Science,  Human Biology degrees.

A North Carolina native of Raleigh, Dr. Gottlieb established this private practice, Carolina Chiropractic in 1994.  Having a focus on meeting the health needs of entire families, Dr. Gottlieb offered unique treatments for infants, children, adults and elderly patients.

Dr. Gottlieb has published research numerous times in international journals, including articles on spinal arthritis, birth trauma, neurology, nutrition, rehabilitation, anatomy and case studies.  As post-graduate faculty of his alma mater, he has been an invited lecturer on these subjects across the country.

“Remaining on the cutting edge of science helps provide the most effective treatments and best health guidance for patients.”     

We established the treatment philosophy of giving patients choices.  Our process; give a thorough assessment, present the facts, and help people choose what level of care is needed based on the patient’s goals and health expectations. 

An active member of the North Carolina Chiropractic Association, 1988-2017, Dr. Gottlieb served as President of the Eastern District, and Chairman of the Research Committee.  Among his many accolades, Dr. Gottlieb has previously been awarded this state association’s highest achievement, “Doctor of the Year.”  Dr. Gottlieb enjoys family activities with his wife, daughter and son, and volunteers in the local community.


Career Celebration for

Dr. Marc S. Gottlieb

I have a friendship and kinship with three generations of patients I have been fortunate to meet over the course of my 22+ year career.  Regrettably my practicing years have been cut short by an accumulation of previous injuries and permanent nerve damage. Even with the best chiropractic care and medical treatment an unplanned, short medical-leave turned into weeks, months, then over a year. Eventually I had to recognize my inability to practice, and I am very pleased to have Dr. Owens carrying on the mission of Carolina Chiropractic as the new owner and director. 

I lost strength, coordination, and sensitivity in my extremities needed for treating patients. Working at my desk and bending over adjusting tables made the conditions worsen over the years.  In addition to dealing with the physical issues; I felt an emotional loss, missing the daily interaction with the patients who are my “family of friends.” Each of you literally made my career by contributing to my collection of experiences known as “practice.”

Each patient added to my clinical experience as a doctor, and taught me personally so much by sharing individual, life experiences. I appreciate what I have done for others, and I cherish what you have given me in return. I truly miss having those shared moments every day.

As you can imagine; I deal with the disappointment of no longer treating patients, but I continue to push my abilities and never waste a day.  I benefit from chiropractic care, nutrition, exercise and all the advice I have given to others which helps me have the best outcome possible.  Just as I would encourage you to do; I strive to improve my own health daily.

This year, Michele and I will celebrate 27 years of marriage, the high school graduation of our son Dylan, and the 2nd college graduation of our UNC-Chemistry graduate Emily, from Columbia University in NYC, with a Masters of Nursing.  We are so proud of their accomplishments, but especially who they have become

I will enjoy seeing you out-and-about in the community and hearing updates from you as well. 

Best wishes,

Dr. Marc S. Gottlieb
