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.
