Dr. Priestley is the Chiropractor's Chiropracter. I have the highest esteem for his dedication, knowledge and experience in Chiropractic care. I've been under his care for about 8 months now. By the time I came to his office I was feeling my lowest..When I entered his lovely decorated office I was greeted by a friendly professional staff. Dr. Priestley Uses an info packet and visuals to educate on my diagnosis. His treatments are successful and sustaining.

I have been seeing Dr. Priestley since for over 12 years. He is without a doubt, an amazing doctor who cares for each and every one of his patients. He gives personal time and attention each time coming in and assists with any and all issues from seasonal allergies, to pain, to weight loss. He is kind hearted and has a wonderful family. I would highly recommend Dr. Priestley for any of your wellness needs- a wellness check up, car accident, work incident, pregnancy, veritigo, etc.!!!

My wife and I have been going to Dr Walter Priestley for many years. He has always been a great resource in eliminating pain we encountered. In fact over the years,whenever we came down with Back or neck pain from lifting or shoveling, we ran there in a panic..and within a few visits - Dr Priestley had us back to 100%! I also like the atmosphere of the office and staff, and it seems obvious;- all the goodwill he participates in. In summary we really trust him and give him the highest rat

Been dealing with a work related back injury for 9 months now and always in constant pain. I have been seeing Dr. Priestley for the past 3 months and couldn't be more pleased with the care I receive. The office staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. The waiting area and exam rooms are very clean. Dr Priestley and his staff go out of their way to accommodate scheduling appointments with my hectic work schedule.
