Care Philosophy

As your doctor, it is my duty to provide your solution for complex pain and injury-related problems. Because I am a Chiropractor, it is my responsibility to seek the very best, most efficacious avenue to get you 1) out of pain, and 2) back on the road as soon as absolutely possible. My patients will confirm that we use a creative approach that is suited exactly to your body's signature. They will also confirm that the results are generally better than they expected; and usually better than they thought possible. I have learned from the very best in my profession. And though I am grateful to consider myself also one of the very best, it is still my responsibility to seek out those who challenge me to improve. And because I am always, always growing and going-to-grow as a Chiropractor, my patients are always going to enjoy the very best results possible. It's a wonderful feeling connecting with my patients and removing the cause of their pain. We still currently accept all challenges.

Excellent and gifted Chiropractor

Best Chiro in town!
Yakima, WA |
Dr May had a one size fits all mentality. He was rude, rough, and in a hurry. He did not listen when I told him his adjustments were painful and caused pain all day. Would NOT go back or recommend!
This rarely occurs in my office so I know exactly who this is. I promise I heard you. In fact, my staff started to schedule you for 30 minute appointments instead of the usual 15 because we spent so much time talking. I'm sorry you didn't feel heard. I'd have sworn we had a great rapport. This could have led into hurried, but not rushed, adjustments. I'll take a personal inventory to see where I failed you. Your description of me doesn't sound like who I believe I am. Best to you, BB. Rich

I would trust Dr. May with my own children. He is extremely intuitive with the human body and knows how to safely and effectively treat a myriad of ailments in a very short time frame. He is very talented at his work. Besides the 'business' side of the visits, I always notice and appreciate how he is such an honest and good person. I am grateful to have found such quality care. And, his staff is so friendly and courteous. You will always be treated with respect and friendliness.

Dr. May has helped me immensely with my knee that has been hurting for almost a year. When I see him my knee has no pain what so ever and it didn't take long before the pain was gone for good. He is a highly skilled chiropractor using very elite techniques. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
in Hayden, ID |
After having a BAD experience with a Chiropractor many years ago I vowed to never to see one again. Dr. May took his time explained what his philosophy is to Chiropractic and how he adjusts. I am a firm believer that he is the real deal when it comes to healing.
in Coeur d'Alene, ID |
I have been going to Dr. May for over 8 years. My first visit I was unable to walk from a running injury. I thought I tore my meniscus. After my adjustment I was able to go run. I was severely out of alignment. Since then Dr. May at Blue Chip is my first stop for all my injuries from a separated shoulder from snowboarding, stress fractures from running to minor aches and body pain. He is able to realign & keep my body adjusted. Helping me constantly reach my maximum potential everyday.
in Coeur D'alene, ID |
I have had excellent results from chiropractic treatments by Dr. May! He has really helped me get into top condition and stay there! I'd been to other chiropractic services before, but none came close to the quality of service with Dr. May. In just one session he had my knee and ankle pain eliminated, something I'd suffered from for many years, and in short order my posture and back as well. I value not only the quality of his work, but the professional integrity he exemplifies.
in Athol, Idaho |
I have gone to Chiropractor's for over 35 years and have not had one cause me such pain. He wrenched my neck severely causing me to have a minor stroke. The nerve damage from the improper adjustment has left me with permanent numbness in my left arm and hand. On the next visit I had with Dr. May to obtain relief from my injuries, he tore the meniscus in my left knee. This left me unable to walk for several days and it was suggest I have surgery to repair the damage.
