  • "I have had sciatic pain for years! throwing hundreds of dollars for massages that only temporarily helped. Dr. Scharf understood sciatic and back pain personally and has helped me find a long term solution. I have less pain, more energy and a better understanding of how to manage my sciatic. This is the office to go to if you want long term relief."
    Kellen E. Chandler, AZ
  • "I like the chiropractor because he has helped me a lot. It has helped keep my spine straight."
    Joey S. (age 4 1/2)
  • "Thank you Dr. Scharf and Breinn! My neck feels so much better than when I first came in about 3 months ago. What a difference and I have been to many great chiropractors. None have been able to bring progressively better & better long last relief to my neck. The traction REALLY made a big difference!"
