Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "If you are considering chiropractic but you aren't sure it's right for you, I'd encourage you to go talk to Dr. James. I really believe he has my best interest in mind every time I walk in the door. Don't take my word for it. Go see for yourself."
    Samantha D. - Yelp
  • "I can't say enough about how thankful I am to Dr. James. I will absolutely stick to his recommendations and treatment as a way of life. I want to stay feeling this great! I know it's about being "healthy", but the quality of life I have back is what has me so thrilled."
    Fran A. - Yelp
  • "My first experience with James was great. I initially sought our Chiropractic Care after dealing with neck pain. James taught me several exercises and through just a few visits I was able to feel a significant improvement. It wasn't long after my initial care that I became pregnant which brought about several other Chiropractic needs, especially in my lower back. I was lucky enough to have James' care throughout most of my pregnancy which made for a very happy preggo. Most people don't realize how easily your spine can get misaligned. I learned several techniques from James to help avoid issues and for those that could not be avoided, his care became greatly needed and greatly appreciated. He takes the time to listen and is persistent with making sure his clients see significant improvements. Thank you again James!"
    Monica B. - Yelp
  • "Dr. James has been a life saver! I have suffered from TMJ for my whole life and it had gotten to a point where it was effecting my quality of life. Dr. James tried many techniques until he found the one that worked for me personally. It is such a relief to be pain free! I have been to many chiropractors in my days, but I have never found one who is not afraid to spend time speaking with you and generally cares for his patients health and wellness as much as he does. Let's put it this way, I am moving out of the area and will still continue to make he drive to see Dr. James!!!!"
