Dr. Donovan, the Receptionist Dee, and the Massage therapist Maren are amazing. Many years ago I vowed I would never go to a Chiropractor because I was so terrified something horrible would happen. But after constant headaches for a several years that pain killers did very little to help, I psyched myself up to see a Chiropractor. The receptionist Dee was the nicest most caring person and put all my fears to ease. I first saw Maren who was so informative, patient, thorough and did wonders for my tight shoulders and neck. The lymphatic drainage treatment was awesome and I felt amazing. I then saw Dr. Donovan a few days later and was so please with my visit. He is a very gifted doctor who knows exactly what to do to help. I told him all of my symptoms (and fears about being there) and after my first appointment could already feel a big difference. Since that time I have had several appointments and each time I continue to get better. And best of all my headaches have decreased significantly in only a few short weeks! I love their holistic approach and natural methods to getting the body to help heal itself. I am no longer terrified of chiropractors and will continue to see Dr. Donovan and Maren for years to come! Dr. Donovan did more to help my awful headaches than any other doctor. I'm so thrilled to have found such a wonderful Doctor's office!
