Dr. Herring saw a need in a community and filled it. Over our 27 years in practice we have treated a variety of patients. Chiropractic patients are seemly life-long patients. We are proud to taunt the fact that we are treating 3rd Generation chiropractic patients. It has been exciting and rewarding to treat the children of patients that treated in our office as children so many years ago.
Going forward, we are so grateful to all our patients over the years and we welcome you and all new patients looking for outstanding chiropractic services.
