"My first visit with Dr. Handler was wonderful. Although it was only an initial examination I walked out of there feeling much better. I would highly recommend giving him a try if you are looking for a good chiropractor."

Katherine S.

Definitely was by far the best appt and adjustment I have had ever! I was looking for a new chiropractor that was closer to work. He listened to what my issues were and definitely tackled and developed a plan to prevent pain and issues in the future! Definitely looking forward to our game plan!

Sheena M.

Dr. Stephen was very welcoming on my initial visit. He was very attentive to my questions and has applied a few techniques I am not familiar with from my prior chiropractic visits. I felt immediately better after the appointment. However, I still have some issues that may require subsequent visits.


Dr. Handler is the man! He really helped me with a lower back issue I have been dealing with for months. So much so, that he told me I likely wouldn’t need to return for further treatment. He really knows his stuff!

Daniel V.

I had such a great experience with Dr. Marlissa. She was professional and the appointment was so relaxing. She listened to my concerns and gave me tips on how to fix my problems at home as well! I highly recommend her and I can't wait to go back!

Brian O.

Dr. Fondechene took great care to understand my pain and experience leading me to R3. She explained everything in terms I could understand and answered my many questions thoroughly. Will definitely recommend to anyone experiencing pain who hasn’t gotten the desired relief thru traditional western medicine options (i.e. orthopedist) or who might want to explore other treatment options in lieu of surgery and medication. Moving forward I’ll start here first!

Doreen G.

My visit with Dr. Marlissa was amazing! I felt immediate relief after this first visit, which made me very optimistic about the back pain I've been experiencing. She was very effective, courteous, professional and informative. Thank you! Highly Recommended! 


Dr. Marlissa has alleviated my pain for an assortment of ailments. She is very knowlegable in an array of topics. She loves to educate her patients as well. Not only am I pain-free, she as also taught vast amount of exercises and stretches to continue to stay limber & strong.


I went to two other docs before Dr. Marlissa and she is the only one who could tell me what was wrong, and I had it for months! Nothing even that crazy just a muscle problem but she found it and helped so much. Pain is pretty much gone!
