Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
I began studying natural healing at the age of 19 and have not stopped since that time. I knew by a young age that I wanted to make a difference in the world and chiropractic proved to be a fantastic fit. I never want to stop learning about alternative and integrative medicine and wrote a book, Recover Quickly From Surgery that incorporates both Western and alternative medicine to assist patients in recovering quickly and with less pain. I enjoy the process of helping patients figure out solutions to simple and complex chiropractic and functional medicine issues. I use proven protocols for my diagnosis but add a dose of long term experience of seeing a variety of cases along with my strong intuitive sense. I am committed to and grateful for my loyal families of chiropractic patients as I am to all the athletes that I have had the pleasure to treat with chiropractic sports medicine. In addition to gentle chiropractic adjustments, I use specific nutritional protocols along with use of functional and energetic medicine. I've enjoyed the success in helping my patients rid of chronic health issues, reduce pain, scarring, sciatica, headaches and more. I offer a variety of protocols including cold laser therapy treatments , combined with gentle spinal manipulation, adjusting with the activator, myofascial release, ultrasound and a variety of other non invasive chiropractic, nutritional and energetic protocols which can alleviate pain and reset your body quickly. My patient's satisfaction is of utmost importance to me. I treat every patient with attention to each of their complaints and yet with a mind of integrating the whole body into the system of health that it is meant to be.
