Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "Wonderful treatments and a great staff to assist Dr. Rick Essman. I could not go through a season without their care. Comfortable environment an escape"
    Joanne McCallie April 2012
  • "I'm so incredibly thankful that I met you guys... you saved me from having serious nerve surgery 2 years ago on my wrist, and for that I am forever grateful. I look back at my first visit to your office, when I couldn't pick up a pen to write, let alone ride my bike anymore because my ulnar nerve was completely dead. Wow. You saved my cycling (and my ability to button my shirt up)"
    Jenn K. / Durham, NC November 2009

Dr. Rick has changed my life with his Chiropractic skills, helping me through countless bumps, bruises, and injuries. Dr. Rick sets himself apart from other chiropractors I have seen because of his dedication to his clients’ long-term success.
