Dr. Baljinder S. Gill DC
Baljinder S. Gill D.C., a Washington native, returned to the evergreen state after completing his studies in California. Dr. Gill D.C. earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of the Pacific in 2010 and went on to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic West in 2013. Dr. Gill D.C. always wanted to be in the medical field.
He initially pursued the pre-dental program but during his undergraduate studies at Pacific, he learned more about how chiropractic can help others and became very intrigued.
“Healthcare is my passion, and I chose chiropractic because it is a non-invasive way of helping others become healthier and maintain a better lifestyle.”
During his time at Palmer College, Dr. Gill D.C. was very involved with helping advance the chiropractic profession. He served on the national board for the Student American Chiropractic Association for two consecutive terms and received numerous honors and awards.
“My motivations to become a chiropractor are driven by the idea of being able to make a positive difference in the lives of others.”
After completing his residency and post-graduate training at Chirocare, Dr. Gill D.C. accepted a position at the Bellevue Pain Institute. There he received advanced training in working with complex spinal disc cases utilizing cold laser and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. While at the Bellevue Pain Institute, Dr. Gill D.C. pioneered new treatment protocols for diabetic and peripheral neuropathy. He continues to host seminars to help educate patients.
Dr. Gill D.C. returned to his hometown in May 2016 and founded Symmetria Integrative Medical. He and Dr. Samra-Gill D.C. plan to grow and expand the clinic to offer additional services to their patients and the community.

CEO & Executive Director
Dr. Lavleen K. Samra-Gill PhD, MPH
Lavleen K. Samra-Gill is the Clinic Manager of Symmetria Integrative Medical. She completed her doctoral degree in Public Health, with an emphasis on Health Behavior and Epidemiology at Indiana University. She completed her Master’s in Public Health with a focus in Behavioral, Social, & Community Health in 2016 from Indiana University.
She received her Bachelor of Science with a concentration in psychology in 2012 from Indiana University-Purdue University.
Lavleen was previously an Assistant Professor at Indiana University and Project Manager of several research studies at IUPUI and IU, all with a focus on health promotion and disease prevention in community-based settings.
Lavleen’s research focuses on behavioral, social, and cultural factors that impact chronic disease risk and management. Her focus at Symmetria is to create and foster a health care model that places the patient at the heart of care. Her passion has always been in healthcare and non-invasive healing treatments focusing on fixing the cause rather than patching the symptoms. She began her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and saw the physical and emotional side effects of physical pain.
Seeing the repercussions of medication abuse and the emotional ramifications of reduced quality of life, prevention became a driving force in her career. Moreover, her training and education led her to look deeply at the impact of nutrition on chronic disease and physical medicine. At Symmetria, Lavleen strives to provide an environment where the determinants of healthcare are minimized and patient-centered care is reformed.
Her mission is to advance Symmetria Integrative Medical into the gold standard of healthcare through individualized, evidence-based treatment therapies. Her emphasis on community wellness and health promotion and prevention are the fundamental characteristics of Symmetria Integrative Medical.

Dr. Brice P. Kovarik DC
Dr. Brice Kovarik is a 2002 graduate of Logan University just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. For the past 18 years, Dr. Kovarik has helped hundreds of patients find relief from ailments such as migraines, sciatica, neck and low back pain, extremity injuries, pinched nerves, and more.

Dr. Kovarik has been trained in Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) and Pettibon adjusting techniques which both focus on rehabilitating posture.
Dr. Kovarik was always interested in Healthcare. In high school, he was a volunteer with his hometown's ambulance crew and one of the youngest Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) in North Dakota, so young, they couldn't give him the title of EMT until he turned 18 years old 2 years later. Dr. Kovarik was also a Surgical Technologist and working in surgery just a couple of years out of high school. After 5 years of helping with hip and knee replacements, cataract surgeries, gallbladder and appendix removals, pacemaker replacements, and many other surgeries, he decided to enter Chiropractic school at Logan University.
In 2000, Dr. Kovarik received his Bachelor's Degree in Human Biology followed by a Doctorate in Chiropractic in August 2002. After spending his childhood in North Dakota and his schooling in
Missouri, he decided he wanted to escape freezing winters and hot, humid summers so in 2002 he moved to the Pacific Northwest.
Dr. Kovarik, his wife, and three children enjoy an active lifestyle while exploring the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Kovarik is a skilled pool player and enjoys golfing when the weather permits. He is passionate about helping his friends, family, and patients find better health through Chiropractic, improved nutrition, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices. If you, or someone you know, are seeking pain relief, more energy, or improved health you will be in good hands with Dr. Kovarik and the team at Symmetria Integrative Medical.
