“Dr. Gaffney is, by far, the most personable doctor I have ever met. It is very evident he cares about you and getting you back to your healthy lifestyle. Most times, when nurses would return phone calls, Dr. Gaffney was the one to personally call me and see how I was doing after my injection, MRI, and follow up after surgery. Would sing his praises to anyone having spine/back issues.”
– Ciara G.
“I went in to make an appointment; they were able to fill out my paperwork, get my X-rays, and see me right then an there. Dr. Chilvers was terrific, straightforward explanations, what to expect how long it should take. Answered all my questions, and I left feeling at ease.”

“I had excellent care and would recommend this facility to my friends.”
– John R.
“I am thrilled with the quality of care, all providers I came in contact with and the genuine concern they all had for me and my needs. I never felt rushed or that they had someplace else to be. Becky Stafford, Dr. Gaffney, and Kyla were all fantastic, understand, and caring people. I believe her name was Melanie; she was so easy to talk to and visit with. She helped with understanding what the next step was and is truly good at what she does!! I am pleased with the facility. I choose to do my physical therapy there and hope I am as happy with them as I am with the rest of the facility!”
