About the Doctor


“After avoiding back surgery by the use of chiropractic care in 1965, I have dedicated my career in chiropractic to helping people overcome pain, disability and suffering without the use of drugs and surgery.”
Dr. Beno received his pre-med degree in 1966 and served as a US naval medical corpsman on board the USS Chicago during the Viet Nam conflict. In 1969 he married his wife Linda. In 1973 he graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard Illinois with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees completing over 4,400 hours of professional instruction.
Upon graduation, Dr. Beno began his practice in Petoskey in 1973. He specializes in Applied Kinesiology with well over 400 hours of post- graduate study in this field. Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning.

The atmosphere at the Beno Clinic is totally patient-centered. At our clinic, our staff works together as a team to find more effective ways to treat you. We are caring, competent, cheerful, focused, and dedicated to giving you the finest, most thorough work-up and care possible.

Dr. Beno is active in his community and profession. He is a member and past president of the Petoskey Rotary Club since 1985, and abides by the following Rotary 4-way test: “1. Is it the Truth? 2. Is it Fair to all Concerned? 3. Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships? 4. Will it be Beneficial to all Concerned?.” He is also a Eucharistic Minister of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Michigan Association of Chiropractors, and the International College of Applied Kinesiology. Dr. Beno enjoys cross country skiing, downhill skiing, water skiing, biking, gardening and golfing. He is married to his wife Linda, who is an R.N. on the clinic staff. They raised two beautiful children in Petoskey, Jeff & Melissa.

Dr. Beno is willing to work with any doctor of any health care specialty in order to benefit the well-being of his patients.
