Outstanding service!
Once Upon a Time, I could barely walk stand, or sit for very long without immense pain. Dr. Jim helped me in a way no one else has been able to. He is an amazing chiropractor, explains everything in detail and is very compassionate. I have been going to him for about 24 years. He goes above and beyond what is expected of him. He is my miracle worker.

My experience with Dr. Frandanisa has exceeded my expectations. I went in with neck and shoulder pain and really felt it was age and that I wouldn't get much better but wanted to give it a try. Within ONE week my pain had improved 85%!!!!!!!! I continue to maintain and improve ! I will continue follow up visits as I see the importance and value in spine health! i am completely on board with my treatment as the results have been dramatic!!! I am so happy I found Dr. Frandanisa!!!!!!!

I met with Dr. Frandanisa 2 weeks before my World Championship competition. After 5 sessions, he had me in top shape for competition and completely pain free. He was positive about my treatments and explained what was going on with my pain and what the plan was to get me pain free. I am continuing to work with him and have recommended him to friends. The office staff is pleasant and communicates back quickly when I've called. Appointments are easy to get scheduled. I highly recommend Dr. Jim.

Dr. Frandanisa has been a great help with my back and handling my L&I claim. He knows my back and joints and knows exactly where all of my problem areas are and how to adjust me. 15-20 minutes later, my headaches are gone, and I can breathe again. I've been going here for about 7-8 years now. I highly recommend. I've gotten in same day many times before and the clinic is very accommodating.
