Dr. Titus Plomaritis Sr., Author and Chiropractor at Plomaritis Family Foundation, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in health care and writing.
Upholding his own private practice for more than 35 years, Dr. Plomaritis is a celebrated chiropractor who recently retired from the health care field and has pursued the avenue of writing and literature to chronicle his life’s achievements and victories. In his formative years, Dr. Plomaritis earned a Bachelor of Science from Boston University in 1953 and a Doctor of Chiropractic from the New York Chiropractic College in 1957. After obtaining some hands-on experience in the field, he returned to education and received a Master of Science in nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. He was certified as a corrective therapist by the Brooklyn Veterans Affairs Hospital.
Dr. Plomaritis is the founder of the Plomaritis Family Foundation, an organization which funds college scholarships to Lowell High School and Pelham High School students on an annual basis. To date, the fund has raised nearly $60,000 in scholarships. Notably, one of Dr. Plomaritis’ shining achievements was his involvement with President Jimmy Carter and New Hampshire Governor Hugh Gallen to remove a mandate from the Medicare bill that required a referral before a patient was allowed to receive chiropractic services. This enabled more than 40 million Medicare patients to receive chiropractic care without medical intervention.
Subsequent to his retirement from the chiropractic field, Dr. Plomaritis wrote a book, “Titus,” highlighting the events in his life which led up to his most prominent moments, including his career as a football star. Released in 2012, the book tells the tale of a young boy whose father expected him to work at the age of 14. However, his teachers and coaches insisted that he return to school and continue playing football. The book also features more than 250 photos from the Great Depression era, as well as countless memories of the residents of Lowell, MA. A 600-page book, 100 percent of the proceeds from the book go toward the scholarship fund directly.
In recognition of his exceptional undertakings in literature, Dr. Plomaritis was recently the recipient of the Pete Delohery Award for Best Sports Book from the Shelf Unbound Indie Book Competition in 2018. In addition, he has been honored several times for his career in medicine, including as the recipient of the Paul M. Tullio Award for Distinguished Service to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in 2013. He was also named Chiropractor of the Year in the state of New Hampshire in 1979 and a fellow of the International College of Chiropractors in 1981.
