So glad I was referred to this office. It’s not just a quick walk in and get an adjustment. He takes time to discuss what’s wrong and ways to work on fixing any issues. I feel 20 times better after visiting! Thank you!”

I love this guy! Not only is Dr. Joe a knowledgeable, experienced, GENTLE but effective chiropractor, he is well-versed on holistic medicine and really cares about the overall health of his patients. His assistant Joanne is great, too. I highly recommend a visit if/when you need an adjustment.”
