About Us

Coastal Medical and Wellness Center 3257 SE Salerno Rd #3, Stuart, FL 34997

We care for your wellbeing

Our physicians and staff believe that educating our patients is just as important as improving their health. Helping you understand your health conditions, how they progressed to their current state, and how appropriate treatment will help correct them is an integral portion of our overall healthcare approach. To do this, we may use video, anatomical models, computer imaging, and instructional classes designed to help you “see” your current health condition. Research strongly supports this approach and has shown that patients who understand the full nature of their condition heal more quickly, with fewer relapses, than those who do not.

Our main objective is to restore your health, but our ultimate goal is to keep you healthy and injury free. We embrace the proactive philosophy of a preventative lifestyle, stressing the importance of supervised exercise, nutritional counseling, weight management, as well as periodic wellness care throughout the year to maintain your health. Regardless of your healthcare philosophy, if your goal is to address a particular approach, our physicians will always be here to address your healthcare needs.

We’re a family-owned business

As Small Business Owners since January 2003, Lynne and Cliff Atwell believe the success of Coastal Medical and Wellness Center is two-fold. First is the customer service experience you will encounter upon calling/entering our office. Lynne has over 30 years of experience in customer service management and prides herself on the “Disney-Wow” type of service you will experience at Coastal Medical and Wellness Center. We consistently hear from our patient base how they feel like extended family, and we couldn’t agree more. Second are the results you will receive from Dr. Cliff and his Coastal team. With a combination of over 40 years of experience in the Physical Medicine Arena, Dr. Cliff and his team strive to improve your quality of life and activities of daily living while minimizing your discomfort. We look forward to welcoming you to our Coastal family!

Meet Dr. Cliff

Welcome to the vibrant world of Functional Medicine, where healing isn’t just a destination but a transformative journey. I’m Cliff Atwell, DC, your guide on this odyssey toward optimal health and vitality.

Born and raised in the heart of North Carolina, I discovered my passion for science at the University of NC Charlotte, earning my bachelor’s degree in 1991. Little did I know that this would be the launching pad for a lifelong commitment to understanding the intricate dance between science and well-being.

In 1999, my journey led me to Logan University, where I earned my Doctorate, solidifying my dedication to the art and science of Chiropractic care. Over the years, my practice has evolved, guided by the profound belief that true healing goes beyond surface-level solutions. It’s about digging deep, finding the roots, and addressing the core issues, not just chasing after symptoms.

When I’m not unraveling the mysteries of the human body, you’ll find me soaking up the warmth of beautiful Florida weather. I have a deep love for college basketball – there’s nothing quite like the thrill of competition and the camaraderie it fosters. My family is my anchor, and I cherish every moment hanging out with my wonderful wife and three incredible children.

To fuel my passion for continuous personal growth, I engage in ongoing training with Brian Johnson and the Heroic platform. Rooted in the wisdom of stoic philosophy, I believe in the power of resilience, the strength to endure, and the courage to face challenges head-on. Life is a tapestry of experiences, and every twist and turn is an opportunity for growth. This commitment to learning ensures that I stay at the forefront of the latest developments in lifestyle coaching, offering you cutting-edge solutions for your well-being.

Join me on this journey towards a healthier, happier you. Together, we’ll navigate the
intricate web of your health, embracing the philosophy that true wellness begins with understanding and addressing the root cause. Let’s embark on this adventure – where vitality, resilience, and joy are not just goals but the very fabric of your existence.
