About Dr. Richard Eggert

Dr. Eggert’s initial interest was in nutrition which led him to earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in nutrition, graduating at the top of his class in both. He then worked for a couple of years in hospitals, but found that they were not the ideal environment in which to teach people about natural alternatives to drugs and surgeries! Dr. Eggert’s sister and one of his good friends were chiropractors and, after seeing them for preventive care, it became readily apparent that chiropractic and nutrition provided the perfect combination for a true natural health care approach. Dr. Eggert enrolled in New York Chiropractic College where he had the opportunity to study more about the human anatomy and physiology than happens in medical school. Having had the opportunity to dissect human cadavers, gave him tremendous insight into the role of the nervous system in controlling every organ, every function and basically every single cell in the body. He comments, “When I work on patients, I remember that experience. It helps me to visualize the treatment I am providing in terms of the complicated network that carries messages from the brain to all tissues of the body via the spinal cord and nerves. That’s why chiropractic is so important… it helps to “free up” the nervous system to do its job in “directing” the rest of the body.” On a Personal Note… Dr. Eggert’s wife, Elizabeth, is an international flight attendant who loves to prepare varied and exciting meals for the family. Dr. Eggert readily admits that he used to be ‘king of the kitchen” and a vegetarian chef… but Elizabeth usurped his throne and now she “rules” the kitchen. Dr. Eggert's daughters, Jessica & Haley, are a great source of pride. Dr. Eggert is board certified in the treatment of sports injuries

I went to Dr. Eggert for my headaches that I was getting 2-3 a week. His evaluation was very thorough and he explained to me 80% of headaches are neck related. After 3 treatments I have not had any headaches inthe past month. I still go periodically to maintain the corrections that were made. I highly recommend Dr. Eggert.

Doctor Eggert helped me tremendously. He was able to locate the problem areas and tackles the issue as opposed to taking care of the symptoms with muscle relaxers and pain relievers. Not only was the staff professional they were also very friendly. I will definitely be back.

The exam was very thorough! I had help from the first treatment. I’m going to follow the plan he recommended and am looking forward to the long-term benefits that will hopefully come with it. You can just tell he knows whathe’s doing and really cares–no bs. Plus, he and his assistant were very nice!

If you were unable to make a visit he made you feel horrible. I was in significantly more pain every time I left his office and he would blame it on the fact that I came 2x/week instead of 3 orthat I was unable to come (when he kept changing the days he was in office).

I really enjoyed my experience. I was very picky about who I would see because I've had back issues in the past and have heard horror stories about bad chiropractic experiences. I picked Dr Eggert because he has 30 years experienceand then when I met him he really gained my trust. I will go back again .

Starts off telling you what he's going to do and how long it will take. And then he does it. Simple and straightforward. Unfortunately I did not see much improvement. I'd like to leave a higher rating because Egg and Dorismade it a good experience, but I came here to get better and that did not happen. I know others have had successful treatments here so it's worth a shot.

Dr. Eggert is very knowledgeable in this field . He's easy to talk to and very friendly . His sense of humor is pretty great too which makes visits go a lot smoother and makes going to a "doctor" a lotmore pleasant . I highly recommend his practice . Most of all I like that we are on the same page when it comes to taking medication, all alternative routes come first !

I needed to see a doctor right away for my back, and I didn't know much about chiropractors but when I read the reviews, I took a chance. Needless to say, I was taken care of and educated about what wasgoing on with me, and I'm happy that I was treated and given a packet of information about my specific case. Plus, it's a natural alternative, it's a great option. Dr. Egret is great as well as Dorothy, the secretary/assistant. Don't hesitate to wait if you have something wrong. This practice is great as well as a great investment.

Dr. Eggert is one of the best medical professionals out there. I went in for pain in my neck, upper back, and upper leg. We sat down and went over a detailed treatment plan and I was able to see resultsstarting from day 1. Of course, chronic pain requires multiple visits and a lot of patience. Stick with his treatment plan and you will see significant results like I did. It is well worth the investment for your health. Both he and his assistant Dorothy are incredibly nice people. Despite the fact that your visit will probably last 15 minutes at most, it will never feel like a one-and-done deal (and for chiropractic therapy, it never should). Do note though that sometimes you will have to ask Dr. Eggert additional questions though even if he usually is very thorough. As for wait time: that is almost non-existent. You will almost always go right in and on the traction machines that will smooth out your back and make it easier to be worked on. If you happen to be less than patient, then Dr. Eggert is right for you as if his profession expertise was not already convincing enough. Overall, just one of the best.

I've went for adjustments, a couple times, and i feel very rushed in every appointment. All his adjustments are done fairly quickly however since its done so quickly he often times misses his mark which would cause muscular discomfort for awhile after the adjustment. he simply just has a routine that would probably fit majority of the people he serves and sticks with it. I dont really feel as if he adjusts his sessions to fit my needs.

Excellent and professional doctor and a very nice, clean, comfortable office. This doctor seems to really know what he is doing but I just wasn't able to commit to the frequency of treatments that he prescribed. If you have the timeto go in for treatments several times per week, this doctor is a great choice.

Dr. Eggert is the best! I had a hard time finding a chiropractor that would do more than just a quick adjustment. At the first visit we discussed symptoms, examined x-rays, and went over physical and mental components of pain. Notonly does he want to treat the pain he wants to treat the cause. There is a laid-back vibe with an open treatment space and wonderful assistant named Dorothy. After 3 weeks I am feeling so much better and happy I found my chiro!

I've been going to this practice for over a month now, and I've received exceptional service. The wait time was very short, I'm seen almost instantly. Dr. Eggert is very kind and knowledgable. He made me aware of certain things inmy spine that needed adjusting that I didn't know I needed. Just because I didn't feel pain, didn't mean things were okay. I started on a program to have adjustments 3 times a week, and I instantly noticed a change in my attitude and posture. Dorothy, the nurse, is great and very helpful. She is always welcoming and has a positive attitude. Another plus is that I'm currently pregnant and Dr. Eggert can treat me! I didn't know this was possible before. I would definitely recommend others to come to this practice.
