Patient reviews for Dr. Kristin Freitas
Excellent. Dr. Freitas helped me so much when I was having acute issues and has helped to keep me stable and feeling good since. Highly recommend!
Kristin is the best, very helpful, confident, knowledgable.
Visited Dr. Kristin yesterday. My first appointment went really well. Its rare to find that perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness, but she knocks it out of the park. I've never been to a chiropractor, so my expectations were a bit different. I appreciate approach she took with my lower back issue and less than 24 hours later (given the assigned homework) Im feeling better. I was educated, joked around with and reassured. Great experience!
I cannot recommend Kristin enough - I love seeing her for treatment! She is incredibly knowledgeable and professional while still maintaining warm and inviting demeanor.
Dr. Freitas was excellent. I had several injuries that she helped me through and have since completely resolved. You can tell she cares about you and that she knows how to beat take care of you.
Kristin is very thorough and professional. She takes care of your needs and always has a smile on her face!
I found this practice via a recommendation from a friend at the gym. I was training for my first marathon and experiencing hip and back pain. Kristin is so knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. She is extremely thorough and cares deeply about her patients. Her approach to chiropractics is modern and innovative. She is kind and gentle. Kristin has been an amazing asset to me as I continue my fitness journey. Everyone at this office is fantastic!
Dr. Freitas did a wonderful job on my first visit with her. I was very pleased with her Mckenzie method knowledge as I had a friend recommend this treatment to me for my low back pain. I left feeling great and she gave me exercises to help myself at home.
