Testimonial

  • ""My husband & I have been going to Dr. Cattafi for almost a year now and it has been great. Crossfit has made my muscles super tight and uncomfortable, and each and every time I go to him he fixes me! He shows me exercises to do at home and is really knowledgeable about his work. If you need a good chiropractor I would recommend him a million times!""

  • "Never met a Doctor that knows his stuff like Dr. Tom. Not only does he make you feel at ease about your worries/issues - you leave the office feeling 1000 times better than when you came in. Excellent doctor.
    Really takes his time with you to find the root cause of pain. Also, you come out learning a little bit more about yourself! Great experience. Highly recommend."
