I struggled with lower back pain for several months. I went to my primary care, did a month of PT but was not getting better. Then I scheduled an appointment with Dr. McLelland. I felt better within a week and back to normal within a few weeks!

Dr. McLelland is very knowledgeable and also takes the time to give you the same context so you can take your treatment into your own hands. I love that he gives you exercises to do on your own to strengthen your spine and he holds you accountable to! If you want someone involved in your treatment and to hold you accountable, Dr. McLelland is your guy!

Extremely conscientious service. Doctors listen and provide appropriate manipulation that most frequently addresses concern. Also discuss problem and explain source of issue with easily comprehensible information.

I’ve been going to Chiropractic Centers of Short Pump Inc. for about two months now. I can’t remember the last time my back/neck/shoulders have felt this good! The doctors are committed to helping you feel better and teaching you about the spine and how to take care of it better. Dr. McLelland is very professional and great at what he does. Everyone at the front desk is very personable and helpful - they always work with you if you have schedule conflicts and are always fun to talk with! The office hours are really convenient - they have time slots in the morning and later in the day so you can work around work schedules. I’m very grateful I decided to go to Chiropractic Centers of Short Pump Inc.!

I initially went in with back pain and within a short time I could see a major improvement. I continue to visit in order to maintain my progress. Visits are quick and easy, never a wait, and their entire staff is so friendly!

I just had a terrible experience at Dr. McLelland's office today. He is quite obviously all about the money ande making as much as possible from patients. He did not want to see me because it turned out that his receptionist was mistaken when she said I had a $60.00 co-pay with my insurance. My insurance doesn't even work with co-pays. The doctor actually took the phone out of my hand to dispute what my insurance company was verifying. Then he said, I think you would be better off with another chiropractor and offered me a list of other names. He was a terrible jerk who wasted my time, was only interested in money and was quite rude. And since I am only in Richmond a couple of days I don't even have the time to find another chiropractor. A truly terrible experience! Do not recommend Dr. McLelland at all. He also claims to be the number one chiropractor in the nation for customer satisfaction, a claim that is impossible to legitimately make. What a sham!!!

When i first came to this practice i was really messed up,i suffer from scoliosis and i also had mid back and bulge at base of my neck,i also couldn't turn my neck very far left or right,first visit was in 2018,after 12 vistis,i was able to turn my neck,bulge at bottom of my neck gone,lower back alot better,mid back no more pain, there is a big emphasise to educate you about your body and how how a poor skeletal system can effect so many things in your body,i learned alot which made my recovery better.i would highly recommend this practice for you skeletal problems.

Great doctor! I had a negative experience with the previous chiropractor I went to and so I was already nervous going to a chiropractor again. Dr. McLelland quickly put me at ease and listened to me patiently and was very open to all the concerns I had. He genuinely cares about his patients and is also very good about following up. He takes the time to explain how the spine and our nervous system works. His goal is to educate you so YOU can take care of yourself in the long run. 5 stars!

He's a sham. Has patients do reviews of him and his practice in the office, which very biased environment for that. He has an ego issue, is sarcastic, and arrogant if you provide him with feedback, findings, and recommended course of treatment of M.D.'s. Find someone else. There are tons of other chiropractors in Richmond.

I have been seeing Dr. McLelland for over ten years. My first visit was a referral from my PCP for neck and shoulder problems, and Dr. McLelland was able to take care of the problem. I have continued to see him for regular adjustments and for occasional problems caused my job. Dr. McLelland and his staff are wonderful, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. They always take time to listen. I wouldn’t think of going to any other chiropractor!

Dr. McLelland has been exceptional - he has been so thorough and he and his staff are so friendly, it's such a great place to visit. I came at the end of the summer with mid-back pain and it's now mid-October and I am pain-free. I appreciate Dr. McLelland so much!
