Vista Family Chiropractors Kris and Melissa Tosczak

Dr. Melissa Tosczak developed an interest in health, early in life, that eventually led to an exciting career in Chiropractic.  She chose a Pre-Med curriculum at the University of California San Diego, and graduated in 1999.  Dr. Melissa earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience, and a minor in Psychology.  Following graduation, Dr. Melissa enrolled in Chiropractic College.  She graduated Cum Laude from Southern California University of Health Sciences, and received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.  

After graduating from Chiropractic College, Dr. Melissa moved back to "America's Finest City" because she believed it would be the perfect place to start her career and eventually raise her family.  

Dr. Melissa considers health a part of her life as well her career.  Her greatest passion is working with mothers and children.  She is certified by the Academy of Chiropractic Family Practice and the Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics (C.A.C.C.P.) as well as Webster Certified.  

Dr. Melissa is dedicated to serving the true healthcare needs of as many families as possible.  She goes to extraordinary measures to ensure the highest quality Chiropractic care, so that others may realize their full human potential.

Dr. Kris Tosczak's interest in health began while he was a young child growing up in Canada.  Always active in sports he was always the first on the scene when someone was injured.  He took this interest to the University of Calgary where he studied Exercise Physiology and it was here that he discovered he wanted to be a Chiropractor.

He opted for the warm weather of California and attended Southern California University of Health Sciences, graduating Magna Cum Lade with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

After graduation Dr. Kris was convinced to stay in the warm weather of Southern California and moved to the San Diego area to open up a practice with Dr. Melissa.

Dr. Kris is dedicated to staying on the forefront of all the newest health trends and bringing the best care possible for his patients.  He understands the body is a self healing, self regulating system that is controlled by the nervous system and he strives to educate his community about true health, without drugs through chiropractic care.  Dr. Kris is so passionate about wellness that he recently became a Certified Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle Practitioner (C.C.W.P.) and is certified through the ICA Council on Wellness Lifestyle Science.  His goal is "to teach others how to Eat Well, Move Well and Think Well for a lifetime."

Review By Our Satisfied Patient

  • "We trust Kris and Melissa completely. They have been a huge help to my whole family. Melissa's prenatal care helped my baby stay in the correct position, greatly easing my birth. With my first two, they were sunny-side up, and it is no fun birthing that way! Melissa has been a huge help in assisting my recovery from a concussion. My kids see Kris for dislocated fingers, sprained ankles, sprained knee, etc. They are always right as rain within hours to a day or two. And, chiropractic has helped with my teenage daughter's process of having her food allergies cleared."
