Meet the Team
Dr. Daniel Capitano
Dr. Daniel Capitano grew up in Portland and graduated from Western States Chiropractic College (now, Western States University of Health Sciences) in 2002. He has been the owner of Hazelwood Healthcare since 2020.
His patients have ranged from 3 days old to 98 years old over his almost 20 years of practice. He is a friendly, straightforward, and honest doctor, who offers effective, gentle, and holistic healthcare.
Dr. Capitano provides comprehensive care for Motor Vehicle Accidents and Worker’s Compensation cases; He has been called upon as an expert witness for litigation because of his expertise and patient advocacy in these types of cases. Being active and health-conscious himself, he also specializes in sports injuries, lifestyle modification, and nutritional consultation. Dr. Capitano respects your resources (time, energy, and finances) and will treat you as an individual, both your medical case and as a human being. If his office isn’t where he thinks you should be, he will refer you to his practice’s local referral network. His patients agree that Dr. Capitano’s goal is to meet them where they are, then try to improve them to be better than when they presented for treatment in the first place.
When Dr. Capitano is not at Hazelwood Healthcare, you will find him enjoying time with his family and friends, creating another project (home improvement or otherwise) for himself, trying his hand at blacksmithing, or bouldering on the rock. Dr. Capitano is a loving husband (his wife is also a chiropractor) and proud father of two daughters (who are growing up too quickly). He is a loving family man first, amazing chiropractor second, and self-proclaimed Jack-of-all trades third.
Dr. Jackie Cashion
Dr. Cashion has had the privilege of practicing chiropractic in Portland for the last 30 plus years.
She treats Auto Accident Injury patients to Medicare patients and all those in between.
Work injuries have evolved into one of her specialties. She understands a work injury can turn your world upside down and her compassion combined with knowledge of the system can help you through a potentially challenging time.
In Oregon you don’t need a referral to see a chiropractor for your injury. Chiropractors are attending physicians and can take care of your work modifications and time loss as well as provide the care you need to heal and get back to work.
When not in the clinic, Dr. Cashion enjoys bicycling, hiking, gardening, travel and time with her family and friends.
ZEV ALPERT, LAc
Zev began his journey to becoming a practitioner of Chinese Medicine when he was in his mid-20's. At that time, he was passionate about martial arts and rigorous training led to a back injury that caused severe pain and difficulty walking. As a last resort before surgery, he tried Acupuncture and was fascinated by how such a subtle and noninvasive treatment had such a profound effect on his body.
This led to a fascination with anatomy and physiology and eventually to a course of study that would last him 7 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
While Acupuncture can treat a variety of issues Zev has a fascination with treating pain, anxiety and insomnia. Zev believes that the body in its most healthy state is relaxed with a calm mind. Acupuncture can be a great way to rid your body of the effects of daily or more severe stress as well as aches and pains from a variety of causes.
When not in the clinic, Zev loves exploring the trails and parks of the Pacific Northwest with his wife and kids.
Patty has been working in the chiropractic industry for the past 36 years. She does a bit of everything around the clinic but her passion is helping patients understand the ever changing and confusing dynamics of insurance claims and how to best navigate through them. She enjoys boating, hiking, inspiring others to be their best and has an amazing crystal collection!
Front Office / Chiropractic Assistant
Brensley is usually the first smiling face to greet you as you enter our clinic and ALWAYS the first to make everyone laugh; a true ray of sunshine! In her spare time, she enjoys hiking and exploring the various trails that Oregon and SW Washington have to offer. She also spends a lot of time in the gym working out and focusing on her own overall wellness journey.

After high school she moved to the east coast where she continued her education at the University of Central Florida and graduated with a degree in Visual Arts and Emerging Media Management.

Jeannie has been perfecting her massage craft over the last thirty years throughout the NW region and we are blessed to have her a part of our unique team!
Jeannie has a great awareness of the body/mind connection and how both injuries and emotions effect the body. Jeannie incorporates a variety of techniques into her massage therapy sessions, including but not limited to deep tissue, therapeutic stretching, reflexology, pregnancy massage, shiatsu and reiki.
She has a passion for being outdoors and enjoys hiking, biking, swimming and spending time with friends and family, especially at the beautiful Oregon Coast.
Rhonda has been a licensed massage therapist since 2014. She really enjoys working out those “knots” we all have through deep tissue massage, but she also loves seeing her clients completely blissed out after a relaxing massage. Her Reiki training also helps her tune in to each client, offering a whole-body treatment of healing, relaxation, peace and security.
