Hola I'm Lexi and I don't like you guys hehehehe byeeeeeeeeeee
I am very satisfied with the care I receive from Dr. Gischia and the staff. My regular visits are a very important part of my wellness plan.
Dr gischia has helped me so much .instead of having neck surgery he has corrected me through chiropractor care
I've been a pt here for over 14 years and have followed Dr. Gischia through 2 new offices. I highly recommend Dr. Gischia, he's very gentle and knowledgeable, he always takes the pain away!
Dr. Gischia is the best! I've has a few back surgeries with a fusion and he keeps me functioning really well. He listens to his patients and really cares. He's knowledgable and stays on top of his learning. I wouldn't go anywhere else to be adjusted.
Wonder experience every time. Quickly got in before my scheduled appointment! Love Dr. Gischia & staff!‚ù§Ô∏è
I have been getting adjusted for over 23 years by Dr. Gischia and feel great. I use to get headaches 3 times a week and regular doctors just want to prescribe medicine. I am 49 years old, my seldom get a headache and take no medicine. Chiropractor care is essential to my good health.
Absolutely the best chiropractor! He has diagnosed things that my other Doctor didnt. Cute smile, gentle and kind. The staff are great.
Dr Gischia and his staff are efficient, welcoming and highly effective. They can be trusted to deliver superlative treatment. I wholeheartedly recommend them.
Love the staff, Doc is great
Great Doctor and staff. Recommend them to everyone. Dr is interested in your total overall health, not just your spine.
I am greatfull for good chiropractic care.
I have lived in six different states and have gone to dozens of chiropractors over the past 40 years. Dr. Gischia is the best. I have my daughter coming here and she was so pleased that her father-in-law, mother-in-law and their son are now going to see Dr. Gischia.
Love coming here! Always feel better afterwards. Staff is great!
Dr. Gischia has a special gift (knowledge ), in adjusting my problem areas. I recommend him to everyone I know that have health issues.
I have been to several chiropractors, and Dr. Gischia is by far the best! He is extremely personable and knowledgeable, and he places an emphasis on overall wellness. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Overall great office that keeps me pain free and able to continue working.
A lot of lower back issues, bladder problems. The first time I did the 6 adjustments after that I never felt better. Working out everyday and going to work with no problem
Dr. Gischia is great! He explains the what and why of our adjustments. My kids love getting adjusted!
Dr. Gischia is an incredible doctor who truly cares about his patients. Because of him, I not only avoided surgery, but after a year haven't had to see my general practitioner for any illness. His staff is also exceptional from the moment you step in the office. I also highly recommend Dr. Gischia for children's health (my son no longer has knee pain and looks forward to his wellness visits).
Great chiropractor. Went to someone else before and was not satisfied. Dr Gischia uses many techniques to make you feel better. I enjoy the office staff as well.

Great doctor but too many questions when arriving
I was nervous to start chiropractic, but that all changed when I met Dr. Gischia. He explained everything in detail and answered every question I had. Not only has he helped me with my neck and back pain, he has also helped my elbow and ankle. I had horrible foot pain, I got the foot leveler orthotics and they helped my day to day foot pain. He started doing cold laser therapy on my ankle. He also suggested I get my ankle looked at and I did. I had a partial tear in my Achilles tendon, I attribute Dr. G and the laser for helping reduce my risk of a full blown Achilles tendon tear. He also helps me with my elbow pain that is caused from work duties and golfing on a regular basis. Overall I am so happy that I starting getting adjusted, I feel so much better.
Dr. Gischia and his staff are fantastic. They are my families first line to good health and mobility. When I started coming here a few years ago I couldn't even sleep in a bed. After weeks of physical therapy I still had to sleep in a recliner. Within a couple visits with Dr. Gischia I was back in bed and pain free within a month. I recommend him to everyone.
Thank you for adjusting me today
I feel much better I can actually talk
I feel much better now thank you
The massages here are awesome
Always fantastic and such a enhancement to my health and wellness
