Biography

Dr. Franya Peterson decided to follow in her father's footsteps. Her father, John B. McLaughlin, started this practice in 1963. She began working in the practice when she was 15 years of age. Dr. Peterson saw the satisfaction of helping people improve their quality of life and reach their health goals. She also experienced the health benefits of chiropractic care in her own life. She was mentored by her father until his retirement. Upon Dr. John McLaughlin's retirement, she and her brother have continued the legacy. She now enjoys spending time with her loving husband of 20 years, and two amazing children. As a family, they spend time with all of their pets. The Peterson family stays active together while camping and hiking. Dr. Peterson thrives on forming close relationships with her patients, in order to help each person achieve their health care goals. We extend an invitation to you to be a part of our chiropractic family.

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.

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.

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.

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.
