My wife and I were in a car accident and we both went to different doctors, as I told her about doctor A and his staff she could not believe the care and treatments I received. She provided feedback to her doctor and he did not have the technology or the staff that Priority Medical does. I am grateful to Doctor A and his staff for their great attitudes and medical treatment. Throughout the Pandemic Doctor A ensured safety was a top priority keeping social distance and hand sanitizer everywhere and constant sanitizing made me feel comfortable I was in good hands.

This business is extremely unprofessional. I was recommended to this doctor for treatment and was denied and turned away due to the fact that they felt uncomfortable because the person who recommended the Doctor was a previous employee. I was told this was a good rehab center but the fact that they turned me away really shows how they care about their patients.

Had the best therapy experience at Priority! All the staff there have been great and so helpful! Priority makes everyone feel at home and they make your therapy experience a lot of fun at the same time. Valerie is the best assistant at priority, make sure to find her first. She will make anyone’s time here the best and most comfortable, all while displaying excellent service and unbelievable professionalism! Also Dr. A is very knowledgeable in his profession and no one will be disappointed, the best place to get treatment!

Also, Miss Valerie there is the best you can have, she runs the entire office and knows about all treatments and how to customize it to the patients’ needs. This office is definitely filled with professionalism and care ....

This chiropractor office is amazing from the front desk to the back stafff. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Dr.A has been treating me for about 6 weeks now and feeling better already. Valerie and Jocelyn are so good at their job and make me feel so comfortable along with the ladies in the back who do the acupuncture and massage therapy. Excellent practice with excellent staff.
