What sets Dr. Smith apart?
I take the time to listen to your concerns, explain your treatment and treatment options, and make sure you understand the treatment goals and therapies. I try very hard to respect your time and minimize waiting times. I strive to keep the cost of treatment reasonable.

In a healthcare environment when you seem to pay more and get less, I continue to provide beneficial services that many other chiropractors have cut. Therapies that make patients more comfortable and prepare the body for manual treatments, such as moist heat, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and myofascial treatments are routinely provided to patients to help maximize the effectiveness of treatment.

I am dedicated to providing patients with the most advanced conservative spinal therapies and treatments available.

In short, I work with you to ensure that your healthcare needs are met and that my service exceeds your expectations. I cannot guarantee positive results, but I can guarantee that I will give you my full attention and best effort in treating your condition. I work for you.
