    Jared
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Faria and her knowledge of the body. She listens, she cares and she helps get to the bottom of any problems you may be having. She solved a 12 year health problem I have been having with my diet. I had no idea I had food allergies as there are no food allergies in my family. All because she treats the whole body not just the spine. She not only has me as a patient now she has my children, my husband, and other family members."
    Catherine
  • "(Dr. Faria) has helped me return to good overall health after a couple of injuries. She has also been a big part of identifying areas of concern and recommending preventative tools to prevent future injuries."
    Mark
  • "I've been a client of Dr. Faria's for several years now and she has helped me so much! I am a Radiologic Technologist at a busy hospital, and I truly believe her chiropractic skills are what "keeps me going." She's helped me with my migraine and tension headaches and my chronic muscular pain. Her knowledge of nutrition is outstanding and the regimen of supplements she has me on, has made me feel much better than I was. Also, my immune system is working well, so that I rarely get sick, even though I work in a hospital."
