Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I am not a go to Dr Gal...but after over a week of trying to doctor my back pain on my own I went in to see Dr. Marco. This was not my first visit, I had gone a couple years ago when I was having Back pain and he diagnosed SHINGLES. My own HMO missed this and would not help me but Dr Marco caught it. My HMO would not help either, it was Dr Marco that helped me through it. Just like he did then, he is doing the same now. I have had two treatments and I can stand without grappling the walls to stand. Kind and Knowledgeable, a Doctor that cares....I highly recommend MARCO CHIROPRACTIC, and Dr Marco."
