Customer Reviews


I started to see Dr. Read after having vertigo issues. I had tried physical therapy with the epley maneuver, and at home exercises, but it did not seem to provide any lasting relief. After just the first adjustment from Dr. Read I felt much better and more relief than I had gotten doing any other of the things. After a couple more visits all vertigo issues were completely gone. I also use to have lots of issues with my upper back and neck. Since seeing Dr. Read I do not have tension in that area anymore. Thank you Dr. Read!

I am thrilled with the relief I have gotten from treatments at Read Health Center. I have been a patient of Barbara’s for at least five years. My visit are getting farther apart as I now stay in alignment. I recently had a new pain in the back of my head. One adjustment and the pain was gone immediately and hasn’t returned in 10 days! Her gentle touch is amazing. No jerking or severe manipulation! I am thankful I found her!

I have been going to Chiropractors for 30 years and I feel Read Health Center has helped me more than any other Chiropractor that I have tried. This was the first time that I tried Nucca and I have to say it is the best decision that I ever made. It has helped with pain in my back and neck and my sleeping problems. Dr. Read is so kind and gentle and she always takes as much time as you need to help you, even when she has a waiting room full of patients. I absolutely made the right choice when I chose Read Health Center
