Best doctors and staff in the city! Cured my foot ailment completely!
Duluth, MN |
I had never been to a chiropractor in my entire life, but after living with neck, foot, and back pain, I decided to give it a shot. After my initial appointment, I was given some options towards help with my pain. It's important to note, that it was not pushy at all, and was left up to me. I'm about 10 appointments in, and I always look forward to it. I've seen both doctors, who are a pleasure to work with. I'm always greeted with a smile from the receptionist, great help from the doctors, and

Couldn't ask for a more helpful and friendly staff. Everyone has been so amazing since day one! I would recommend them to anyone. They take the time to explain everything and really care about your well-being.

From the moment I walked in I felt at home and so comfortable. The staff is extremely professional and welcoming. The equipment is all top notch. Nothing but positive outcomes from their services! I would recommend Dr. McGillivary to everyone who needs chiropractic help.

Dr Kara treated me when I experienced an acute episode of chronic neck disc degeneration. After a few weeks of adjustments,decompression therapy, and other modalities, I was pain free. Her follow-through included prescribing and monitoring rehab exercises so.I have more mobility and strength in my neck than I have had for many years! I can now look up and see the stars in the night sky!

I have been a patient of Drs Greg and Kara McGillivray for over 20 years. I originally began seeing Dr. Kara when she was first out of medical school and I had had an accident. I continue treating with Drs. Greg and Kara to this day for maintenance, which keeps me healthy. Both doctors are extremely compassionate and caring and listen to your concerns and then decide the best treatment plan for you.

Several years ago I went to the Chiropractic Health Ctr with debilitating spine and neck pain. My family doctor could not help me, but after several months with Dr's Greg and Kara I was pain free! Professional, friendly and thorough. Given advice on exercises and diet, I now go every month to stay in the best health that I can. My quality of life has returned !

Dr. Kara McGillivray is educated, intelligent, compassionate and professional. She takes the time to educate her patients in how to improve their not only their spine, but their overall health and wellness. The combination of spinal manipulation and therapy treatments have made a marked improvement on my health. Her positive energy, the cleanliness and comfort of her office and the fabulous staff make Chiropractic Health Center my first choice in chiropractic care in the Twin Ports.

You really got to check out Dr. Kara at Chiropractic Health Center. I finally found a trust worthy doctor who really cares for my well being. Linda Lenard, Duluth MN

Kara is great and always genuinely happy to see you and make you comfortable. Her treatments are precise and quick with good results that last. I look forward to going in for an adjustment as I feel better after and definitely more relaxed as I have less tension in my shoulders and back after treatment.
in Duluth, MN |
Dr. McGillivray provides excellent diagnosis prior to treatment. The treatments are administered thoroughly and professionally. Additional technical measures, such as ultra-sound are recommended to assist treatment when necessary. I always have a soothing, comfortable feeling after treatments and adjustments. The results are amazing!
