Very nice people and they took their time with me today. They have several chiropractors that work there which surprisedme. They integrated that modality into their treatment plan. I was really in pain when I went in today and they combined traditional medicine and chiropractic to make sure I was feeling better when I left. No Dr has ever done that before.

The staff was very nice and professional. Paperwork was streamlined. The doctors were very informative and immediately started building a plan to help my lower back and sciatic pain. I was even put through a hybrid circuit of acupressure, chiropractic, and PT on my first day! I felt 20% less leg pain by the end of my visit.
