Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    "I was in severe, constant pain from a rotator cuff injury and a herniated disc in my neck. With treatment at American Health and Wellness Center, I was able to recover rapidly. In a short amount of time I was able to participate in my daily workouts, lifting weights, etc.” Dr. Petrie is very pleasant to work with. He is professional, genuine and a very caring person. I would recommend Dr. Petrie to anyone!"


    "I have suffered from severe migraines for over 30 years. For the last 13 years I was taking Imitrex and Verapamil which decreased the severity of the headaches, but they still remained. Through regular chiropractic treatment at American Health and Wellness Center and minor changes in diet, I haven’t had a migraine in over a year. Regular chiropractic visits and proper exercise technique taught by Dr. Petrie have also reduced my low back pain."
