Comfort Dental has earned more than 200 five-star patient reviews on Demandforce.com, due in no small part to the emphasis that Dr. George Rizkalla and his caring team place on patient comfort. From the moment guests arrive, they enjoy amenities that include a beverage station with coffee, hot chocolate, and tea, as well as a children's area where kids can play with toys. Patients entering the treatment room find entertainment in the form of a personal TV and headphones set, as well as free Wi-Fi. Warm, lavender-scented neck wraps soothe the senses with aromatherapy, and heated or cooled towels can ease muscles or freshen the face.
To further enhance the experience of patients with anxiety, Dr. Rizkalla offers sedation dentistry. He also saves clients time by using the E4D system to create a three-dimensional image of a tooth and forge a ceramic or composite block. He then places the finished crown, all within a single day.
Founded in 1948, the ChiroCenter has succeeded through the decades due in large part to the expertise of their doctors of chiropractic, the ranks of whom now include nine different chiropractors with as much as 35 years of experience. At each of the center's five offices, these doctors alleviate their patients' pain using adjusting techniques whose purposes range from improving biomechanics to reducing nervous-system interference. One such technique is the activator method, a process for fixing subluxations that involves delivering low-force, high-speed thrusts with a handheld instrument that resembles a mini pogo stick or a giant ant pogo stick. These practices treat more than just the back; benefits also include reducing fatigue and improving headaches and sciatica.
Doctor of Chiropractic Lindsay Daniels first experienced chiropractic care as a patient. After the treatment worked wonders for her spinal pain, she pursued a career as a chiropractor herself. At Go Health Chiropractic, Dr. Daniels seeks to help patients with the same ameliorative care she received as a patient years ago. Today, she lends her expertise to clients that range from athletes to families and children.

The practitioners at Robin Center Chiropractic don't just fix you up and send you on your way. On the contrary—to help patients maintain good health on their own, they take the time to educate each one about positive lifestyle changes. Part of their method includes wellness practices through holistic medicine that aim to help keep the body in balance. As they work with patients to meet healthy goals, they perform treatments such as spinal adjustments, electrical muscle stimulation, and massage. A range of massage techniques target different issues. Lymphatic massage spurs the functions of that system, reducing inflammation. Other techniques encourage relaxation or improve range of motion or reduce joint pain. The team can use gentle or strong force or incorporate warm river stones.
Exercise videos posted on their website are an added bonus, teaching patients moves that will help them improve strength, stretch their range of motion, and win break-dancing competitions.
