I was suffering from chronic jaw pain for years before I found Dr. Mark! I called his office and Pam was so helpful and sweet, she booked me an immediate appointment because she knew how much pain I was in. Dr. Mark was knowledgeable, kind, and listened to my concerns. I immediately felt better after my first visit. He put me on a month-long course of action which was exactly what I needed. I look forward to my adjustments & visiting Dr. Mark & Pam. They were courteous and professional every time I went in there, not like other places I've been. I appreciated that they never took advantage of me or my insurance company- they only gave me what I needed and recommended the best course of action for my specific need based on prior experience and educational expertise. Thank you, Dr. Mark!

I've suffered from back pain almost my entire life. To make things worse, I injured myself in the gym a few years ago and the pain from that has been progressively getting worse.. well more like a discomfort. There are times when I can't find a way to sit that doesn't bother me.. Sleeping is a struggle too. Anyway, Dr. Cafagna and his team not only gave me an awesome treatment, but educated me on what was going on with my back problem. I didn't notice a difference so much the day I was treated but the day after the results were like magic! The pain was gone! I was dancing around like a little kid!! No joke! I'm sure it will take more than that for me to be completely cured (if that's even possible).. but man, to be free of pain for even just a few days is worth just about anything! Even better.. their prices were reasonable enough to fit my budget. Def RECOMMEND!! Thanks Dr. Mark & Team!
