Testimonials

  • "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
