I was in a car accident a few years ago and my back has been very messed up since. I've seen doctors and went through some PT but nothing seemed to help. I was referred to Dr. Papalia by a close friend but was still extremely nervous to go to a chiropractor. Dr. Papalia explained every step to me in detail and made me feel extremely comfortable. I started to feel better after the first visit and even more so after the 2nd. It is a very friendly, clean environment and I didn't have to wait at all

Dr. Papalia is the perfect model of how a doctor as well as a practice should be conducted. He has helped tremendously with the unbearable pain in my upper back & shooting pain in my left arm and shoulder. He has the insight to try different methods when necessary-and does not give up! His positive outlook as well as his pleasant, calming nature makes all the difference in the world in regard to the healing process. His office is meticulously run by Lisa, an amazing and lovely individual.

Dr. Papalia is an excellent chiropractor who truly cares about the individual he is treating. My son has a severe back injury and without Dr. Papalia - he would have no relief at all. I am so thankful for his expertise, his kindness and compassion. He is a very positive person and it's always a pleasure to visit his office. I do recommend this doctor to anyone with back pain - He is excellent. Thankyou Dr. Papalia!!!
