Warm and Courteous

Kelly was very helpful, warm and courteous. She made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Mike was excellent. He explained everything he did and why. He has a calm temperament and is very approachable


Good Atmosphere

Well equipped, professional atmosphere. Good atmosphere comfort zone and very cordial relations with patients God bless Marketplace Family Chiropractic Centre.


Welcoming Professional Environment

A welcoming and professional environment. The reception and tour make a very good first impression as does the appearance and cleanliness of this well equipped facility. The initial visit and examination was very thorough. I look forward to the results and a discussion on a treatment plan.


Great First Impression

Great first impression – I’ve already told two friends and a family member about my experience at your clinic.



For a first time in a chiropractors office I was very happy with my first appointment and enjoyed getting the important information I needed and the sense of humor everyone in the office had as well. Great atmosphere and I really felt comfortable.


Great Experience

All great experiences so far! I love that is an integrated health center for overall well-being and not strictly one discipline. I feel the mentality towards health very closely mirrors our family’s.


Welcoming And Friendly

They were very welcoming and friendly. Interesting and fascinating tests. Unlike anything I’ve had in the past.


Completely Impressed

So completely impressed with every aspect of my first visit today! My eyes have been opened as to what chiropractic care really involves. Now I see why my friend has been making it a priority to continue her care for so many years. It’s such a positive component of healthful living, and so much more than just fixing an ailment.


Helpful And Knowledgeable

Excellent location, very friendly and helpful staff and the doctor was very professional, helpful and knowledgeable.



Very professional approach.


Excellent Information

Had never been to a chiropractor and didn’t really understand what they did. On my first visit I learned a lot from the little intro video they showed while I was waiting and then talking to the staff. Dr Mike did a great job explaining what he was looking for (subluxations) and what he was doing to correct them. Attending the doctor’s reports and findings session was also excellent info and I look forward to working with the team at Marketplace and referring my family to their care as well!


Professional and Courteous

Staff were professional and courteous, the administrative assistants very friendly and competent, the chiropractor, very professional and competent. Saw improvements in my pain and mobility after the first adjustment and it lasted 3 days, very grateful.


Genuinely Care

Very thorough staff. Left with an impression that they genuinely care about their patients well being.


Excellent Service

Excellent service and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Referred someone to you guys as being my overall visit was so great.


Big Difference in My Neck

I must admit that my understanding of Chiropractic treatment was not positive. This understanding was from the 70s. After my daughter visited you earlier this year and had adjustments done she recommended for me to do the same. It’s good to take your children’s advice. After the first adjustment, I found a big difference in my neck area and it continued to get better and better. I have recommended to one of my friends and hope to recommend Chiropractic treatment to my friends in the future. Thank you.


Comprehensive & Engaging

I would say it was the most comprehensive and engaging appointment I have ever been to.


Road to Health

I am looking forward to beginning my road to health.


It Works!!

It works!! After my first adjustment, I felt much better by the second day.

Serious Headaches

I was having really serious headaches for a few months, and they were starting to affect my everyday life. I went to my doctor and he sent me to every kind of specialist possible – neurologist, opthamologist, and I even had x-rays and a CT scan done. On top of that, these specialists were prescribing me tons of pain killers, and NOTHING was helping! I remembered that I had heard that chiropractic can really help with headaches, and so I made myself an appointment. After my first few weeks of adjustments, my headaches completely disappeared, and since then I haven’t had any headaches nearly as severe, and also don’t need the pain killers they were prescribing to me from before. Chiropractic has definitely changed my quality of life!

Cough-variant asthma

We first started care for the girls because we heard chiropractic care helps reduce or eliminate asthma. Our girls are aged 6 and 7 years old and have had “cough-variant asthma” since the age of 3 or 4 years old. I don’t know if it is just a coincidence, but I think their care helps. After 9-10 months of chiropractic adjustments and one full cold/flu season behind us, the girls have never been so healthy! We haven’t needed any antibiotics since beginning of treatment. Our oldest has not used her puffers (Flovent or Ventolin) since the end of spring 2008, and our youngest uses a minimal dose of Flovent because she experiences some coughing (no “serious event” as before) this fall. Thank you!

I could not walk

I began chiropractic care after I had a long day at the park, running and jumping with my kids and I could not walk the next day. I came to see the doctor and started treatment right away. It has been over 4 months and I feel great! Now, my wife and son have started care, and soon my baby girl will, too, because I can see the benefits of chiropractic care.
Peace. Love. – O.E.

Knee, shoulder, and neck injuries

I began chiropractic care after having knee, shoulder, and neck injuries that were not resolved after a long period of time with physiotherapy treatments. My wife urged me to try chiropractic to see if I would have any changes. She was right (again!). After a few months of care, my knee pain had disappeared and my shoulder and neck range of motion were improving. I feel better than I have felt in a long time and I know if I continue with chiropractic care, I will continue to feel great. This place is great, the staff and atmosphere are wonderful, and after a long day at work it is always nice to come here and see all of the smiling faces of the staff and patients.
Keep up the good work!

Severe upper back and neck pain

The reason I began chiropractic care was because I had severe upper back and neck pain due to working on a computer all day. I’ve had this problem for as long as I’ve worked in front of a computer (approximately 10 years plus). The pain would be constant and affected my home life greatly as I was not able to do all of the things I would normally do. Now, I am able to do everything I used to do and I am so thankful for that! The office atmosphere is very comfortable and sophisticated looking, and very clean. The staff is friendly at all times, always with a smile on their faces and willing to help whenever an appointment is needed. A very recommended business!

Trauma in my lower back

I started care due to a trauma in my lower back. I was in an extreme amount of pain and had known about my condition prior to the trauma setting it off. At first, I only wanted to be pain-free, but after thoughtful explanation, I committed to longer term care. Their goal of promoting overall health is refreshing and after 2 months of care, I am seeing improvements not only with my back pain, but my overall health.


Sheer pain in my neck and lower skull

After a few months of sheer pain in my neck and lower skull, I sought help at smaller intervals. I also found an excellent massage therapist that treated trigger points. I strongly believe that the combination of care helped my neck. The doctor did something one morning that had me smiliing all day long: I was finally able to turn my head from one side to the other without having to turn my torso with it! Pure joy!! Thank you for taking the time to listen to your patient’s needs!

Headaches and leg pains

I came to see the chiropractor because I was getting lots of headaches and leg pains. Since I have been coming, I have had minimum pain and headaches. I am so glad that my step-mom told us about chiropractic. Thank you!


To be healthier

The reason I began chiropractic care is because my mom wanted me to be more healthier and so did I. I found that when I see the chiropractor that my shoulder is starting to feel much better because this is the best chiropractic care I have ever had, and the people there are so friendly and the kids area and waiting room are so calm- plus the treats they have are delicious and healthy! I would be happy to tell my family, friends, and people I know about this place and I will. Thanks for the great chiropractic care!


I began chiropractic care because my wife and children started getting care. Although I didn’t suffer from pain, I did have issues with posture. I have noticed improved posture and respiration. I am hoping to reduce dependency on daily drugs as well as improve seasonal allergies. I feel better overall health with my care plan, and with a vitamin program I feel that I have been able to cope with excessive travel and stress at work. The office environment is always pleasant and friendly. The doctors are very good and have a great way with their patients.


Sciatic Nerve

I came to the centre with reservations. I did not think they could help since I was fit (or so I thought). I have found a few pains since and the doctor was able to fix that for me. My sciatic nerve doesn’t bother me anymore, either. I would recommend seeing either one of the chiropractors, because they are great and pleasant people. My daughter and I always learn something new with them at each visit. I just find it far to drive, but I manage to come anyway.
