What People Say About Dr. John Maher, DC
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. John Is so much more than the typical Chiropractor! He is extremely knowledgeable on many levels. He isn’t afraid to admit that he isn’t the right person for a problem! He sent my Grandson to a Dentist who eventually helped him with a jaw problem. Try him—You”ll like Dr. John!

As a retired Chiropractor and Certified Applied Kinesiologist, I am very particular about who I let adjust my spine and who I choose to listen to when it comes to nutritional advice. Dr. John is one of the few Chiropractors I trust. His skill, his knowledge and expertise are exceptional. He meets my needs for non-force adjustments as well as delivering traditional Chiropractic adjustments to those with that preference. Finding a good chiropractor can be a challenge. In my opinion, Dr. John is one of the best.

Dr. John took care of my hip pain in just a few visits. I went in thinking there was something wrong with my hip. He quickly diagnosed me with a subluxation of one of my vertebrae. He worked on correcting that problem and also taught me the correct stretches to perform in order to avoid this problem in the future. Haven't had a problem since.
