About Us

When you walk into our office the first people you will meet are either Mely or Maria. They are always ready to help you in any of your office needs. Their smiles and sunny dispositions alone, are enough to make your day much more pleasant.

The next thing you’ll likely notice is our open, bright and comfortable waiting room. We want our patients as comfortable as possible. For our younger patients we have a special activity area with books and videos are available for them.

Once the doctors have completed their evaluation examination and if needed, any x-rays, they will review the results with you in a comfortable and private consultation room. During the review of your findings, Dr. Rassel will explain what is wrong and whether or not you are a candidate for chiropractic care. All of your questions are important, so please ask them. This is an extremely important aspect of your treatment because you, yourself, play a critical role in your healing.

We specialize in family care for all ages – toddlers, teenagers, parents and grandparents.
