Since having my son, I have really seen the benefits of a chiropractor and Dr. Bartlett truly tops them all. And his use of massage, rather than a machine roller, has truly helped me, especially with my migraines. Even my husband sees Dr. Bartlett for his back now, too. I’m so grateful to Dr. Bartlett for his skillful care for my sweet family!

I am so grateful that I found Dr. Bartlett. I was pregnant and had been experiencing terrible pain in my tailbone when walking for months. After two adjustments I could walk pain-free. I wish I had come in sooner!  I think Dr. Bartlett is really passionate about his patients living healthy, pain-free lives and I always feel taken care of when I go in to see him.
