Clients share their experience

I could barely walk, sit or stand when I found my way into Dr. Leibovitz's clinic. I had seen some other chiropractors, but it was only in this clinic that I had gotten real help with my issues.

Dr. Leibovitz sent me for an MRI and my results showed a bulging disk and a herniated disk. The treatment I received helped solve all my back pains. I can't believe what an improvement.

The staff at Dr. Leibovitz is wonderful. Now I can come back to all my favorite sports activities and drag my husband to whatever jogging marathons are available locally.
