Hi! My name is Dr. Leffel and I have been treating patients for over a decade. I provide chiropractic care for individuals who are suffering from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, extremity pain, motor vehicle accidents and slip and fall injuries. I also treat athletic injuries, acute and chronic muscle and joint pain, and sprains and strains. In addition, I provide wellness care to individuals, families, and senior citizens.
WHAT’S UNIQUE ABOUT ME?
I possess extensive knowledge and understanding of treatment guidelines and protocols.
The care you will receive from me will be based on the most current research on spinal manipulation, therapeutic modalities, patient education, and more. I am an excellent diagnostician. I find the root cause of the problem instead of only treating the symptoms. I am compassionate and pride myself on having a gentle bedside manner. I guide my patients through the treatment process in order to deliver the most beneficial outcome.
