“AWESOME service and staff who were all very friendly, welcoming from the moment I walked in. Had some issues with my leg feeling out of place and after the first time of going, I’ve had ZERO issues! Dr. Sam gave me some assessments, adjustments, and exercises to work on at home. He made sure it was thoroughly explained and understood so I did everything properly.
