Dr. Maher's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Maher "Finding and choosing the right doctor with the skill, experience, education, integrity, technical training, tools and skills in chiropractic, nutrition and alternative medicine who can help you get well without drugs or surgery can be a daunting task. For others, finding a doctor who is on your insurance or Medicare plan, or has reasonable fees and a sliding scale for children, students, military families and seniors, can be challenging as well. Still others like to read testimonials. In any case, I have created this Health Grades site to better assist you in finding out if your search is over."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Maher "My practice is a "one stop wellness shop" for those seeking highly effective and often rapid drug free alternatives to pain relief and common health challenges in a beautiful, relaxed setting. My practice is low stress, low overhead, low cost emphasizing hands on diagnostics and treatment. I perform all exams and treatments myself. New patient exams are one hour and follow up treatments are 30 minutes.

Having practiced for over 25 years, my chiropractic and alternative medicine "tool box" is full of natural remedies. As to chiropractic I employ both traditional and "non force" gentle adjusting methods for any joint from head to foot

I am a "in network" provider for most all insurance and am a Participating Medicare Provider, meaning I accept both insurance and Medicare assignment. For those without insurance or who need therapies not covered by insurance, I provide sliding scale fees for minors, students (<27), active military families and seniors (>64)."
