Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Meghan Dowling is the best. I've had a very bad lower back pain, elbow and knee pain. It took me only three sessions to decrease the pain from 10 to 3. Thank you so much. The entire staff is very friendly."
    Abdula G.
  • "Dr. Austin and Dr. Dowling are two very knowledgable Chiropractors. I highly recommend the 28 Days to Health class, it has improved my health significantly. Dr. Austin and Dr. Dowling and Kelly are all very good with children as well."
    JoAnn C.
  • "I just realized I never posted this review, but I am now a regular. Unlike the few chiropractors that I've been to, Dr. Dowling pays attention to all of my needs and tends to each of them individually. She doesn't do the same treatment during every visit."
