I have such great things to say about this place, it may be hard to keep it short and sweet!!! First off, Dr. Joe and his staff are GREAT. I cannot say enough about them. Whenever my family walks in, we’re ALWAYS greeted with a friendly smile. Dr. Joe has taken the time to address all of our questions and/or concerns, which we have really appreciated. We never feel rushed at all, which is something that goes a long way in today’s fast-paced world.
Initially, we sought out chiropractic care for our 3 year old son, who was having issues with a dry, unproductive cough for a little over a year. After seeing numerous doctors, he was finally diagnosed with something called “cough-variant asthma,” and it was suggested that he be put on Singular, something I wasn’t too happy about. Prior to his “diagnosis,” we had tried so many different things (and I put, “diagnosis” in quotations because the doctor just said that his symptoms “sounded” like cough-variant asthma, not that it actually was, and that the only way to know was to put him on the medication to see if it helped). So if this medication worked, then we have our diagnosis. If it didn’t, we’d move ahead and try something else. However, I wasn’t up for treating our little boy like a guinea pig. I was optimistic that there was something out there, and after an exhausting year of trying everything from elimination diets, allergy testing (all tests showed he had ZERO allergies), allergy meds (just in case), homeopathic remedies, a trip to the gastroenterologist and the allergist – our last resort was chiropractic care. I was always very skeptical with alternative meds. Yes, I believed that they worked for others, but I had a hard time believing it’d work for us. At this point, my husband and I had the decision to either fill his prescription or try to see how chiropractic care could help him.
It’s been about 2 months since we’ve been seeing Dr. Joe and I think I can confidently say that I have seen amazing results that are no coincidence! After the first two adjustments (5 apart), I noticed significant improvement in his cough. We went two weeks (til his next scheduled adjustment) without using his inhaler, which was a triumph for us because he was currently using his inhaler every 2-3 days. After his 3rd adjustment, the coughing became more sporadic and the gaps between coughing went a lot longer, several hours, if that. After the 4th adjustment (this is when I began to see obviously noticeable results), he went three weeks without any coughing, except for the first day or so after the adjustment, but again, not enough to have to reach for his inhaler. We’re on his 5th adjustment, and he’s doing WONDERFUL. I am a believer in chiropractic care now, and my husband and I will continue to take our son here (I’m going as well; I’m 5 months pregnant now!) and I trust that we will continue seeing positive results, in more ways than one.
Dr. Joe is a wonderful person – he’s truly amazing. He’s very gentle (and I mean this!). I was terrified to get adjusted, especially around my neck area, but he talked to me about what we would do and reassured me of any fears I had, and I look forward to coming in now. Our son loves him, too! He asks to come back, and he’s always ready to give Dr. Joe a hug. We are very blessed to have found our prayers answered in a small, quaint clinic with an amazing chiropractor and a terrific staff. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
