Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been going to Dr Smooke for years and I'm 65 now. He is the BEST chiropractor I have been to and the only one I would go to. I had a herniated disc that no one would touch and was ready for the knife. I met the Dr and he told me to come in. I told him I didn't think he could help but any relief would be great. Long story short walked out carring my cane. He doesn't drag you back needlessly and your results might not be as dramatic as mine but after that I love the guy he has magic hands

I've gone to Dr. Smooke for years and he's always helped me. He doesn't drag it out like some do. I always knew I would feel better immediately after treatment. The staff is excellent too and feels like home. I really miss seeing them but never have back problems anymore. Dr. Smooke is the best Victoria Impavido
