Dr. Priestley is amazing! I was dealing with severe sciatica and back pain and I didn’t know what to do. I was skeptical about seeing a chiropractor at first until I met Dr. Priestley. He explained everything to me in full detail and helped me so much through this pain and helped me to avoid having major surgery . I feel pretty amazing now and I will continue to see him on a regular basis because my body just feels so much better after an adjustment. office is clean and staff is super nice.

I have over many years have had great care from Dr. Priestley. This past year he has been very instrumental in my sons recovery from a herniataed disc. He didn’t just treat him but followed up with him even when he was away at school. Dr. Priestley has been instrumental in getting my son back on the field to play. Compassionate and Caring. Wonderful staff!! Caroline

I would like to start by saying I went into this with a VERY NEGATIVE mindset about Chiropractic help. I hurt my back while moving into my new house and at the advice of family members went to see a Chiropractor (Dr. Priestley). I did not think he would be able to help me but BOY WAS I WRONG. Running is my hobby and I had a half marathon 5 weeks from my first visit. Dr. Priestley was able to get my back in great shape and I was able to run the race! He has made me a believer in Chiropractors!

I came to Dr. Priestley after being in a car accident that left me with a lot of damage to my back and spine. When I walked into his office initially, I could not walk, sit, stand or even lay down without pain. Within the first visit I felt relief, he listened to where my pains and concerns were, offered compassion and thorough knowledge about how to move forward. Several weeks later, I am feeling such a huge amount of relief, Dr. Priestley has been invaluable in my recovery process. Although th

Dr. Priestley and his staff are amazing! I have been going to him for a few years now for herniated disc pain and sever scoliosis. Life has gotten in the way the last few weeks and wasn’t able to get there and I started having severe pain again. One phone call to Dr. Priestley and I was given an appointment right away and the relief I felt almost was almost immediate. They are such a kind and caring practice and they truly have your best interest at heart. Highly recommend them!

I recently went and saw Dr. Priestley (after back pain, probably resulting from all the Holiday things along with shoveling snow, etc.) Again (as always); I left feeling better; in less pain. He was very diligent and tool the time to see where my issues came from and then gave me an adjustment and other treatments also. And his office and staff are always so inviting and have a pleasant atmosphere. I scheduled more appointments and would highly recommend him.

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.

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
