20/10/11 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. Alfonsi for over 5 years and all I can say is that she is far the best chiropractor I've been treated by. She is an excellent listener and really cares about your health, it is obvious she loves what she does for a living. Hands down I recommend her for any and all your back issues.  Respond

20/12/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Alfonsi is the best thing that ever happened to me. I met her 10 years ago and she has accompanied me through good times and very painful times. I work in the medical field myself, and have very serious back problems. I would never let anyone else touch my back and I trust her completely. Dr. Alfonsi has a very distinct, unique approach. She combines muscle work, adjustments and energy work and really listens to my body. There have been times where I hardly could walk, sit or lie down and she always finds a way to ease my pain and help my body heal itself. Dr. Alfonsi manages to adjust you gently, contrary to what you would expect when you think about your typical chiropractor. She has become my companion and guide over the years and I have jokingly said on several occasions that I have never been so faithful to anybody in my life.  Respond

30/11/10 5 5 5 5 I've seen many Chiropractors and Dr. Alfonsi is by far the best. I've been seeing her, on an as needed basis for years. Dr. Alfonsi is gentle, open and really listens to what you are feeling and what you need. She has an amazing ability to read my body and understand it. The time that she spends massaging/relaxing the injured area is exceptional. In addition to her expertise as a Dr, she is a warm, caring and lovely person that puts you at ease right away! Anyone is lucky to have her for their Chiropractor!  Respond

23/11/10 5 5 5 5 I saw 4 specialists for severe headaches, gait problems, peripheral neuropathy in the hands to no satisfaction. I was recommended to Dr. Alfonsi by my condo partners and began seeing her this year. I now feel wonderful and have no side effects of my two compressed cervical discs. I see her twice a month and am thanking the day I met her.  Respond

29/10/10 3 4 5 5 Dr. Alfonsi is wonderful. She's perceptive, smart, knowledgeable, and skilled. She won't hurt you, and most unusual: she won't waste your time and money telling you to come back over and over when you don't really need it.  Respond

27/05/09 5 5 5 5 I first saw Dr. Alfonsi for chronic neck pain that was periodically disabling me for several days at a time. She was extremely thorough in her initial exam and carefully explained her treatment proposal to me in detail. After a few visits, my neck mobility was hugely improved. She worked with me and my a trainer to establish an exercise plan that has prevented recurrences of what was for many years a chronic issue. I was very skeptical of chiropractors before meeting her and have been consistently impressed by her professionalism and dedication to excellent patients care. She is the most careful, thoughtful and intuitive doctor I've seen in any field. She listens intently and provides detailed explanations of her diagnoses and treatment plans. Unlike some chiropractors, it is her goal to ensure her patients can actively participate in their recovery and treatment without being dependent on chiropractic care. I could not recommend any doctor more highly.  Respond

26/08/08 5 5 5 5 I went to Dr. Alfonsi for a dislocated coccyx. I'm very glad I did! The orthopedist who reviewed my xrays said not to bother with any medical treatment for three months. My primary doctor suggested I give Dr. Alfonsi a try in the meantime. I had never been to a chiropractor before, and was a little nervous. Dr. Alfonsi explained what my injury was, what she was doing each time, and what I could do at home to help the process. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has always made me feel very comfortable. Not only was I mostly pain free after the first two visits, she has healed my injury without surgery.  Respond

22/03/06 5 5 5 This is the best chiropractor I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of them through the years. She taught me an exercise for my neck that cured my neck problem. How many doctors teach you something that makes you stop coming to them.
