Had my first appointment today and couldn’t be happier. I’ve seen many doctors for chronic pain and Chad actually listens and cares. He has brought hope back into my life and I’m excited to continue my healing journey with him! After one appointment I already had relief. Such a calming atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Chad is a miracle worker. I came to Chad with severe pain in my neck as well as ringing in my ears. Within a few sessions my neck felt great and the ringing subsided. I appreciate Chad’s thoroughness, professionalism and all around good nature. I am so grateful for his work!
