Patient Testimonials

I really hope this helps change and save someones life. I was extremely MISERABLE for over 5 years before finding and being treated by Dr. Blatman. I tried 3-Chiropractors, 3- Physical Therapists, and 4- Neurosurgeons. Eventually I was physically unable to do anything and spent numerous hours laying down. FYI, I’m in my 40’s so I refused a handicap parking pass and heavy addictive pain pills. Those were the options consistently pushed upon me by the above experts. A customer seen my struggles and referred me to Dr. Blatman. It sounded too simple to be true. However, he SAVED my life with minimum visits and costs. I now vacation, play tennis, racquetball, and ride ATVs. Truly AMAZING!!
