Newport chiropractor announces retirement

With “mixed emotions,” Dr. Terry Cannon has announced his retirement from his chiropractic practice at the Nye Village Wellness Center in Newport. 

“It has been a great privilege for me to be able meet and treat so many wonderful people in my years working in Newport. Thank you for letting me get to know and take care of you. I will miss you all,” Cannon said. “However, I am leaving the practice in the very capable hands of Dr. Ken Bishop, who has been working side by side since 2017. I would encourage all my patients to continue their care with Dr. Bishop, who graduated from Newport High School and went on to Oregon State University and then Western States Chiropractic College (now Western States University).”

Bishop’s practice techniques are similar to those of Cannon, and Bishop said he is excited to provide continuing care for Cannon’s patients.

“Dr. Terry Cannon will be missed from our office, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to practice alongside him again for the last few years,” Bishop said. “I am looking forward to providing continued care for his patients, and we are grateful for the support of this community. I wish you all the best in your retirement, Dr. Cannon.”

Bishop has been practicing in Newport since 2009 and has been with the Nye Village Wellness Center most recently since 2017 — he had worked with Cannon earlier as well, in 2010-11. 

Cannon has been consulting with Bishop regarding patient care and specific patient needs, and while the practice transitions, patients may ask for both physicians to be present when they schedule an appointment, if they wish. 

Cannon will be working Monday and Tuesday mornings through Oct. 27. Patients are encouraged to stop by between now and then to say goodbye and to meet Bishop.

Bishop will be the custodian of Cannon’s records, so any request for those can be made through the office by calling 541 265-8680.

Nye Village Wellness Center is located at 530 NW Third St., suite A, Newport.
