The board review classes started at Sherman College in 1975 as a way to help the students pass the National Board. The Irene Gold Associates organization became incorporated in 1978 in the state of Pennsylvania. She takes great pleasure in having successfully prepared many thousands of doctors for licensure since that time.
Prior to conducting board reviews, Dr. Gold taught in several different chiropractic colleges for a number of years; first for Columbia Institute, then Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, and finally ADIO Chiropractic College. Her years at Sherman College included several years as academic dean.
After meeting and marrying Reggie Gold, one of the most dedicated and outspoken chiropractors and chiropractic philosophers of all time, Irene's education grew to include that field as well. Irene graduated from Columbia Institute of Chiropractic (now New York Chiropractic College) with her Doctor of Chiropractic in 1974.

She worked in numerous areas of nursing for fifteen years after graduation from nursing school. The RN was followed by a BS in Nursing Education, and a MA in Health Education.

I am Dr Joe Borio. I am a chiropractor
in Cicero, NY now for over 29 years. I was born February 7, 1965 in Syracuse,
New York and I’m the third born in a family of four children. My awesome
parents own and operate a large Italian restaurant where I definitely learned
the meaning of hard work. Playing every sport I could in high school, college,
and at the professional level, I lived for the benefits of great health and
great performance. Having some health challenges myself, as a young boy and
being helped by a chiropractor, I decided to enter into chiropractic, to offer
health and wellness to the people of my community, I knew as a boy.
After I graduated from Chiropractic College, I began my chiropractic practice in Cicero, New York, at the same location I practice now. Working hard through the years with many mentors and masters, I was able to grow one of the largest practices in the country, helping tens of thousands of people live a healthier subluxation free life.
In my effort to drive success for chiropractors, I began Chiropassion Consulting ten years ago with a mission to build successful, motivated, and passionate chiropractors and chiropractic teams. I will tell you, I mentor, teach, and coach as I practice, with passion, total commitment, patience, and hard work. I care about the people and practices I oversee like they are my own, and my clients will tell you, I am an honest, authentic man with passion and warmth. My motivational speaking and conviction combined with my love for chiropractic is apparent in everything I do.
I am a contributing writer to many Chiropractic Journals, and I sit on the Board of Trustees at Sherman College of Chiropractic. I am also a board member of the IFCO and I’m a Brother of the Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table. I have devoted the past 10 years as a Chiropractic mentor, teacher, and coach, speaking at all Chiropractic events and for Chiropractic associations across the World.
“The future of Chiropractic is in our hands and it is a huge responsibility.” Chiropassion Consulting is my effort to keep true to the chiropractic principles, while ensuring the continued growth and success of all the clients and their teams we are honored to coach with.
