"I was inspired to choose a career as a chiropractor from my experiences as a patient.  As a child I needed back pain relief and was diagnosed by a chiropractor with a spinal disorder called scoliosis.  My chiropractor effectively managed my shoulder pain and sciatica enabling  my continued participation in martial arts and gymnastics.

Our philosophy is simple; treat patients the way we will like to be treated.

I believe my experiences as a patient provide me with excellent insight as to the needs of my patients.  Because of this we offer weekly treatment plans rather than "signing" patients up on long term care contracts. 

Also, we respect your privacy by utilizing individual treatment rooms rather than using "open" adjusting suites.  We feel your privacy is important so we don't allow others to observe your treatment or listen in on confidential doctor to patient conversations.

Give us a try.  You'll like our simple solutions and special attention."
