Reviews

"Dr. DeTorres is a kind, and very consider doctor. She listens, asks questions and then together you find solutions to looking and feeling your best. She is non-judgemental and isn't there to tell you what to do, but ask you what you feel is best and then support you in your efforts. She is very knowledgeable and friendly and open and honest. I highly recommend."

"I have been consumed with neck and shoulder pain for over 2 years due to stress, old injury from High School and 25+ years of bodybuilding. I have seen Chiropractors for several years already to help with my neck back pain and am currently seeing a brand new guy specifically for my neck issue. He is helping greatly, but it just isn't helping me surpass the level of healing that I need in the time that I need it. Just when I was about to make an appointment for an MRI to see if my neck was worse than we thought, Dr. Detorres recommended I try Prolotherapy. I did ONE treatment and I actually felt significant relief in less than 24 hours! My mobility and range of motion improved literally overnight. I am not one to give reviews for anything unless I feel it would benefit others and I can, without a doubt, say that this treatment changed my life after just 1 treatment and I have others planned for my ankle and low back. Give it a try and I promise it will help especially if you're an athlete! Dr. Detorres is also a Doctor that I can feel comfortable with. She explains in detail, what to expect during the treatment, what the treatment will do to improve the healing process and is very realistic about whether it will be effective for my own personal needs and not based on what others needs are. Call her. I promise you will not be disappointed!"
