Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Dave changed my life. When I say that I mean it in the truest sense, the course of my life altered the day that I met him. Before seeking chiropractic care, I'd had spinal fusion surgery to correct scoliosis. Subsequent injuries and day-to-day stresses, combined with that fusion, resulted in a life of constant pain. There were days where it would be hard to walk or move and I suffered from debilitating headaches. The path laid out by my doctors was additional surgeries and a lifetime of pain management. By seeing Dr. Dave, I now live relatively pain free and, when I do have a bad day, an adjustment gets me back on track quickly. Even my worst headaches, which used to last 3+ days, are now corrected and better in a day thanks to Dr. Dave. Chiropractic care has become an essential part of my life as well as my family's. We consider Dr. Dave and his wonderful staff part of our extended family."

  • "Thank you so much for all you do for me! You’re my “chiropractor away from home”! The last adjustment you did on my knee worked GREAT! I haven’t worn my brace since last time I saw you! I did a 1 ½ mile hike each way up and down a mountain and I did it without the knee brace! My knee rarely hurts me anymore even when I go up and down steps a lot! I’m very thankful that you were able to help me! I had been in the knee brace for 9 months and had almost lost hope of even being able to walk right again. I’ve been out of the knee brace 63 days as of July 5th. Thank you so much for helping me. You’re a great doctor!"

  • "Thank you so much for helping Hunter with his ankle. You are generous with what God has entrusted you with, the care of people! Thank you for being available and willing to help. God bless"

  • "After turning 50, I suffered with neck pain for several years despite consultation with my general practitioner and an orthopedic surgeon and several rounds of physical therapy. At a suggestion of two friends who had great success with Dr. Dave's treatments for their back and neck problems, I decided to try, for the first time in my life, chiropractic treatment. Dr. Dave's adjustments resolved my problems in just a few weeks. Being pain free again is wonderful! I would recommend Dr. Dave to any friend or family member."

  • "Dr. Dave is great! I was skeptical about chiropractic care, especially regarding my neck, however Dr. Dave takes the time to explain everything and makes you feel at ease. He will take X-rays of your spine and show you exactly what is going on with your body so you understand. He talks with you, not at you like many doctors do. I go to see him multiple times a week. I feel much better after an adjustment. I also brought a friend to Dr. Dave and he has seen great results. Thanks Dr. Dave!"

  • "Dr. Sortisio is an incredible chiropractor. He really knows what he is doing and goes above and beyond to help you get better. He has helped me significantly with my neck and back pain."

  • "I have been going to Dave for many years off and on. Being an athlete you need constant attention to stay healthy and competitive. Dave has always given me the best treatment to keep me going."
    Steve Ruck
  • "Amazing and effective care! I was very hesistant of chiropractic care because of the fear of damage. However once I was educated and started to get adjustments it has helped significantly in decreasing pain and stiffness in my back and neck. Dr. Dave is awesome. He's very knowledgeable and personable. He explained in understandable detail what was wrong with my spine and joints and how he planned to improve it. The administrative staff are also very helpful and work with you to make sure you undertand what's going on. Highly recommend Dr. Dave and his staff to anyone looking for outstanding chiropractic care!!"

  • "Dr. David Sortisio has been caring for my back and neck for a little over 4 years. I started to see Dr. Dave when I lived in Crownsville MD. I now live in Pennsylvania and travel 3 hours round trip to receive his ongoing care. Let me explain why. I have been a big believer in chiropractic care for over 20 years. The challenge (in my experience) is finding someone who can really be effective. After researching the subject, I came to the conclusion that I needed a practitioner of the Gonstead method. It has been my experience that Dr. Dave as a Gonstead Chiropractor has had the ability to zero in on the root cause of my discomfort and correct the issue. Over the last 4 years I have had several situation due being over enthusiastic with yard work, falling or other creative ways I have found to cause myself back pain. Dr. Dave has come through for me each time, sometimes it takes multiple visits (which he told me up front) but he got the issue corrected."
