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.

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.

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.
