Featured Patient Testimonial

I suffer from GI issues and was in pain from severe esophageal spasms multiple times a day for more than a year. Things were so bad I had to take a medical leave from work and my doctors were saying the only thing left to try to help me was to remove my esophagus! Not wanting to take that drastic step I did some research on my own and found some articles stating that chiropractic can improve GI issues. I have several close friends who go to Dr. D and highly recommended him. I started seeing Dr D in December. When I met with him to review my x-rays he told me that I had two different problem areas in my spine that could be causing my issues and that he thought he could help me. I burst into tears right there in the treatment room. I was so embarrassed but Dr D understood, after a year of suffering I finally found someone who thought they could help me. I have been seeing Dr D ever since and I now only suffer from these painful spasms once or twice a month. I cannot recommend Dr D highly enough!! He really cares about my wellbeing and is so happy when I am able to report back to him that I have been pain free for several weeks in a row! I can never thank him enough! – Karen R.

"Dr DeFrancesco is an amazing Chiropractor. I have been seeing him for my entire life, and my parents used to drive all the way from Albany NY just to make sure I was able to be seen by Dr D. His genuine desire to make sure you maximize your health is inspiring, and the fact that he clearly practices what he preaches really motivates you. His enthusiasm is infectious and you can't help but leave his office smiling."

"I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for about year when a respected yoga instructor recommended Dr. D. I attended a Monday night seminar to check the place out and promptly overcame my skepticism. Dr. D is knowledgeable, caring and professional with an office staff that supports his philosophy. This is a state of the art facility providing first class health care. Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."
