  • "Dr. Ford worked magic on an injury that I thought I was just going to have to live with… I do a lot of heavy lifting for my job, and the muscles on the inner part of my elbow were getting to the point where it hurt to even pick up a cup of coffee. In one visit, Dr. Ford was able to pinpoint and treat the area, and by the time I left his office, I was completely pain-free! He has so much knowledge to share – he let me know what I should work on and what I should avoid to keep this from happening again. He really cares about the health and well-being of his patients. Super impressed! He’s my chiropractor from now on!!"

  • "Dr. Ford was able to accommodate seeing me same day for my excruciating back pain even with the precautions put in place with the current pandemic. The office was very clean, a thermometer and hand sanitizer were at the front desk and he so politely had a mask on himself. He was informative and really took the time to ensure that he knew how this happened so that he could help prevent it in the future. He also really distracted me during the unpleasant parts of trying to work through a little bit of discomfort to help reduce the tension I had in my back and neck. Definitely coming back!"

  • "I highly recommend Dr. Dawson. He is very knowledgeable and experienced. The massage chair at the end of each adjustment is a relaxing treat."
    Isabel E.
  • "After a long day at work and class, walking into Dr. Dawson's office was so relaxing! His staff is extremely friendly. Dr. Dawson is very nice, and is a great listener.. Whether you are looking for a strong powerful adjustment or something a little more gentle, he adjusts his movements to fit your needs. Carla, his masseuse was very talented! I would recommend Dr. Jack's treatments to anyone with pain, or soreness!"
    Peter D.
  • "Dr. Dawson is simply wonderful! Every visit is personalized and full of caring. He honors the mind body connection in each of his patients. I consistently recommend Dr. Dawson to all of my family & friends."

  • "This was my first time doing to a chiropractor, and Dr. Dawson made it fast, easy, and comfortable. He also explained very clearly what exactly was going on with my back so that I could understand. Overall, a very positive experience!"
    Ariana E.
  • "Dr. Dawson and Dr. Ford are both excellent. They take the time to listen to your individual needs to determine the appropriate care. About 18 months ago when I wasn't making the expected improvement, Dr. Dawson suggested I contact my primary care physician for an MRI. I did and found out I needed neck surgery. I am happy that is behind me and back to preventative and maintenance care with Dr. Dawson and Dr. Ford. Thank you for taking care of me and my family!"
