Reviews By Our Satisfied Clients

  • "I've been going to Dr. Lodes for over 20 years. He knows exactly what needs adjusting and his adjustments last. I've recommended him to several friends who are nurses and they live him too. The staff is so friendly and helpful and most of the time they can get me in the same day I call. He suggests exercises that help my issues and are simple I love this place!!!"

  • "I worked for and received treatment from Dr. Lodes and let me tell you, the whole staff truly cares about everyone that walks through that door. I miss working there and I still can't find a chiropractor as good as Dr. Lodes and Dr. Wharton. I recommend them 100%."
    Stacy J.
  • "I've been to a few different chiropractors in the area and once I found Lodes Chiropractic, I haven't been anywhere else. I have been a patient for about 10 years now, and I cannot say enough great things about the practice. Both doctors are extremely thorough, knowledgeable and always striving to help you feel your best. Everyone in the office is kind, caring and helpful. I also went to both doctors throughout my pregnancy which helped ease any pain I was having tremendously. I highly recommend this practice!"
