The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at UNM-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) has selected Dr. Charles Lenz, DC as the Small Business Star Client of the Year. Lenz is the new owner of Los Alamos Chiropractic Center (LACC).

On July 1, 2018 Lenz purchased Los Alamos Chiropractic Center (LACC), which has been serving the Los Alamos community and surrounding areas for over thirty years. He had joined the LACC as a practitioner in May, and he and his wife were pleased to have the opportunity to then purchase this business in Los Alamos, his wife’s hometown.

LACC has been serving the Los Alamos community and surrounding areas for over 30 years.  “My goal is to continue to provide excellent chiropractic services to Los Alamos and surrounding areas for another 30 years,” Lenz explained. “My mission is to help every man, woman and child experience optimal health through specific chiropractic care.

Lenz purchased LACC to accomplish his goals. However, he quickly discovered the complexity involved in navigating through the paperwork involved in taking over a business and obtaining a business loan. “I spent countless hours searching the internet trying to figure out the proper way to prepare these documents without much luck,” Lenz recalled. “Once I was able to meet with Joseph Montes at NMSBDC, he explained to me what was needed and why. I don’t believe that I would be a business owner today if it wasn’t for his help.”

Joe Montes, the director of the SBDC in Los Alamos, said: “We are happy to have assisted Dr. Lenz in acquiring this practice which has served the Los Alamos and surrounding community for over two decades. He is determined that it continue to do so for many years to come. It’s an honor to help him and many other area entrepreneurs achieve their dreams.”
