Patient Testimonial

"I had a car accident 8 years ago, and that was when I first met Dr. Thompson at his office in the Cedar Mill area. He sympathized with the pain I was going through and always treated me seriously. He really knows muscles and bones. And at the end of January this year, I got into another car accident. I went to the nearest chiropractor near my house, got treatment, and even got a massage, but it didn't help. I looked up Dr. Thompson again on Google. To be honest, I was worried when I thought about moving my office to Hillsboro and making the one-hour round trip. However, it was a very good choice that brought happiness and peace to my life."
