  • "Dr. Jodi is truly amazing at what she does and genuinely cares about her patients. I went to Dr. Jodi last year when I was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. After just a few visits my face was back to normal and my back and neck never felt better. I highly recommend her."

  • "I'd like to thank Jodi for the fantastic job she has done. I am already feeling better. This is the first time since 2007 when I injured my back, that I can say I have nearly zero pain. I have been in constant pain all day, everyday. I've seen 4 chiropractors before Jodi. I am very grateful to have met her. I highly recommend her."
