The Dr. was clear, concise, and helpful. Addressed the concerns, verified my history, presented options and answered questions. Very satisfied with my care and confident in my treatment. The nurse was similarly well prepared and helpful during the prep and wrap-up process of the appointment.

Very easy to get seen, excellent care from the Dr. at first visit and courteous kind staff. At the first appointment he felt comfortable enough doing a small adjustment and it has already helped. I new to chiropractic care and this was an exellent experience.
