Dr. Fowler takes first-class care of each and every patient and the staff bends over backward to ensure each and every patient is their number one priority. Dr. Fowler does a thorough health history, chiropractic examination, precise, structural X-rays, and a personalized report of findings to determine EXACTLY what is going on and whether it is a chiropractic issue.
