After multiple visits, the same initial interest to obtain as much specific information regarding my condition is evident. This indicates a desire from the staff to provide a customized approach to specific conditions and the ability to be flexible as differing needs arise. The staff is professional, yet very personable. Physical and healing benefits have been realized during these visits. Highly appreciative of the care and results.

Dr. Franya M. Peterson is the best doctor I have ever seen. She is very helpful to me and I always leave her office feeling better than I did when I arrived. I would highly recommend Dr. Peterson to anyone experiencing neck and back problems such as mine.

Dr. Peterson always helps me feel better. She takes the time to explain everything to me. She has even seen my son and works great with kids.

Nice staff and competant seevice

Excellent and professional care. Positive. Clarity in all explanations.

Excellent experience with dr peterson. She is helping to relieve my pain. I just wish the sessions with her were longer. One hour would be better than 45 minutes.

I appreciate the friendly atmosphere of the office, and helpfulness in getting appointments when needed. I always feel better after the treatments.

Great great service would not go anywhere else

I appreciate the excellent patient care from Dr. Franya as well as Joanna. Their concern and attention to detail is reassuring. I recommend Dr. Franya's expertise to anyone with a skeleton in need of care!

Wonderful. Recommend her to everyone.

My treatments have help me considerably. Wish I had started going sooner.

Excellent doctor and chiropractic specialist! Highly satisfied with care and spinal adjustments performed. Thank you so much for helping me and for the extremely reasonable prices as well; very affordable. Highly recommended.

Best Chropractor around She listens and doesn't rush you Excellent 👍

Professional and caring service as expected .

I will any one who complains of pains to you and let them know how fast my pains was healed from the professional care given. Within a very short time (the first day) my pains had greatly subsided. Also within another day or two I barely had any pains. Yes I will highly recommend to ones I talk to. Thanks very much.

Very good

When first visited I could hardly walk or exist without sharp pain. After 5 visits I am nearly pain free. What a relief to be on the way to feeling "normal" again. "My" normal, at least. I was afraid I was ruined for life but now I can see a pain free existence ahead. Thank you to Dr. Peterson and Joanna for your kindness and care.

I had lower back surgery years ago due to a car accident. Occasionally, lower back issues come up. Dr. Peterson has been a great help in getting me pain free when those occasions happen. She is a very good listener, always offers suggestions and feedback. Lately she added a different element to my visits and it's helping tremendously. I originally came to Dr. Peterson because I saw that she works with animals too. My cat was having issues that seemed neurological in nature. She adjusts him several times a year now. I've been highly impressed with since my original visits with him. It amazes me to see how he reacts with her now. He jumps in a chair and waits for her to come in and if she doesn't start adjusting him immediately, he let's her know to get busy. Love her. Love her work as a chiropractor for myself, my pets. Love her nature as a.person, love her staff.

Dr. Franya Peterson always listens to my concerns and offers pertinent advice on my overall health. She is an excellant Chiropractor using various techniques of manipulation/adjustment that works well with my body, gives relief from pain and helps my body heal itself without using medication! It's worth the drive from Oak Ridge to see Dr. Peterson.

The receptionist is very nice and knows how to make you feel welcome upon arrival. My husband and I really appreciated all the time that Dr. Peterson spent with us on our first consultation visit. It was great how she explained everything to us. I have never been to a chiropractor and I was very nervous. However, after our visit I was so pleased that Dr. Peterson feels that she will be able to help me. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

My visit was awesome as usual!!

I think she really cares about her patients & ask questions to make sure she works on what we tell her is hurting. She is very throughal & I am very pleased with her . I have told many of my friends about her.


Wonderful Doctor! She knows how to effectively fix my chiropractic needs. I will recommend her to all of my friends.

Dr. Peterson was great! She explained everything that was going on every step of the way. Her method of chiropractic work was better than I have ever experienced as well. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs work done.

Always pleasant and helpful

I had never used a chiropractor before, so I had some doubts as to how much remedy I would receive. However, the first visit/treatment dispelled my doubts as the relief I experienced was almost instant and was very substantial. After the second treatment, the pain and discomfort I was experiencing were virtually all resolved. Dr. Franya was very polite and friendly and patient, listened with great focus to all the details of my issues. She was very honest and gave direct answers to questions, inspiring confidence. The office staff was also very pleasant and nice and reliable for useful information. I gladly give her the highest recommendation for chiropractic treatment and would refer to her anyone who could benefit from such treatment.

Thank you Franya!

Prompt. No long waits. Dr.Peterson knows how to get straight to the problem area and address it. Great results in short time.

Dr. Peterson has been treating my large large Golden for over a year and always gives thorough but gentle adjustments to her spine which keeps her in tip top shape.

Everything was professional and competent

Excellent chiropractor. I always feel and do better after an adjustment.

I have dealt with a number of chiropractors. In my humble opinion, they are the best!
