Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    I had put off coming in for too long and finally made an appointment and I am so happy I did. It's always so nice to talk to the girls at the front and to catch up with them. Dr. Gissy had my neck feeling much better with a couple of adjustments and the massage with Jamie was very helpful and relaxing. Everyone there seems to go the extra mile to take care of me. I won't be lazy and hesitate next time I start to have pain! Top notch spot! Thank you all so much!

    - Jack B.

    The atmosphere feels very friendly and caring, it put me at ease right away. The doctor wasn't rushed at all and took her time to listen to me and explain. The ladies at the front were kind and worked hard to contact and gather info from my insurance company.

    - Cheryl R.

    Dr. Rader has been such a blessing to me and such a great help. She's very personable and explains everything very well. Dr. Rader is very comfortable to be around and more like a friend that I can relate to. Along with the massage therapy that was wonderful, Dr. Rader has managed to "fix" a problem that my medical doctor hadn't addressed such as certain exercises to help my ankle and it worked! Thank you all!!!

    - JoAnn B.

    When I needed to see a chiropractor about 6 years ago, a friend recommended I make an appointment with Dr. Callie Rader. I did and have been very satisfied. When I first went to Dr. Callie, I was having severe pain in my right arm and within a short time the pain was gone and has never come back. Now I see her on a regular basis for my neck and lower back problems. Dr. Callie and her staff are the greatest! Because of the excellent care she has given me, I call Dr. Callie "my hero."

    - Shelia D.

    Dr. Callie is an exceptional doctor, whom I would recommend to anyone. She truly cares about her patients a health and well being, and will take the time to listen and talk with her patients to help meet their needs. I have been seeing Dr. Callie for several years now and shies is like a close friends and not just a doctor that gets you in and out, and on to the next patient. The Staff at Dr. Callie's are amazing as well; from the minute you walk in the door you feel the friendly and caring a
