Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Therkelsen "As a chiropractor, I treat patients the way I would to personally like be treated by a provider. That is, in a warm friendly office, convenient hours, no waiting, participation in insurance, no long drawn-out treatment plans, reasonable fees, and a doctor who is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to help. I don't think that's too much to ask, and it's what I demand of my office. We see patients as family and strive to give them the best chiropractic experience possible."

Hatfield, PA |
Dr Therkelsen is wonderful. Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge (and experience) in his chosen field but he is well versed in many areas of health and wellness. His staff is always pleasant, and waiting time isn't long. I immediately felt better after my treatment.

Unbelievable service for a very reasonable fee. Got a great adjustment, did in-office exercises to strengthen my back, and finished off with a massage on a hydro-table; all for $35. Staff is great... friendly, professional, and super helpful. Highly recommend this office.
Old Bridge, NJ |
Inconsiderate and diagnosed me incorrectly. Other chiropractors are better in the area.
I can't imagine who this patient is. I've been in practice for 38 years, always treat patients with utmost respect and professional care, and have thousands of happy patients. I invite this reviewer to contact me directly at 732 290-8950 to let me know what exactly he or she was unhappy about, and I will do my best to correct it. -Dr Rich Therkelsen
