Looking for a Chiropractor? We found others matching your search, to help you compare.
As a chiropractic physician and acupuncturist, I want my patients to feel comfortable with the plan of care that is presented to them. To do this I explain what the diagnosis is and the treatment plan that is suggested. I also let them know how long I anticipate before they will achieve the goal they are looking for with the treatments. I feel it is important all the patients questions are answered before care begins.
