Patient Feedback

Dr. Jen,

I just wanted to let you know how grateful and privileged I am to be under your excellent care.  On Monday, May 18, 2009, I awoke with considerable reduced mobility and nausea apparently due to spending the night on an air mattress.

Even though your daily calendar was already completely booked when I called, your office was able to fit me into your schedule, and you then proceeded to assess and begin treating my discomfort on that very first visit.  As I write this today only a handful of hours after my second visit, my mobility has all but completely returned and except for the normal soreness after such an episode, I feel almost brand new.

Over the years, I've been seen by a number of different Chiropractic Physicians, most of whom have been very good, with some being better than others.  Indeed, at least two of them carry a degree of celebrity and fame in their respective areas of operation.  I can say without hesitation though, that you are far and away the very best.  Your obvious depth of knowledge and expert application of it, combined with your wonderfullly pleasant nature and gentleness, epitomizes what Chiropractic care is and should be.

Due to the uncertain nature of my employment schedule, I'm not sure when I'll be able to return for my next adjustment, but I do look forward to it.  Until then, continue to be richly blessed.

Warmest regards,

D. DiCrescenzo

A hip injury to a runner is devastating because there is no definitive course of action or recovery period.  When I tore the labrum in my hip and had corrective surgery, my Olympic aspirations were all but finished.  After a year of continued pain, post surgery and every form of rehabilitation, I began seeing Dr. Faber.  I began to see significant results from her chiropractic expertise after 2-3 weeks of work.  As a result of Dr. Faber, I have been running with little to no pain for the first time in 2 years.  Through good health, she has helped me make significant strides towards qualifying for the Olympic Trials.                                                                                              T.

I am Flavia Sandoval 32 years old, four days after giving birth to my baby boy I woke up with my left side of the face paralyzed. I was shocked and scared, went immediately to the ER and was diagnosed with Bells Palsy. They prescribed me Cortizone and antiviral medication, but after taking it for 7 days no improvement was seen.I went to chiropractic therapy and after 2 weeks of therapy I was almost perfect.  It was almost a miracle for me.  I am so happy and thankful to Dr. Jen Faber and I really appreciated what the therapy has done for me.  I continue with my treatment and feel great!                                                                                          Thanks so much,                                                                                           F.
