    Outstanding care to patients!

    Mary Ann Hawkins

    Dr Joe and Eileen are the best in their field. When it comes to high quality, professional chiropractic services, with a side of compassion, they are second to none.

    I want to tell my story to great success over a neuropathy problem with my feet. I am a type II diabetic and have tried many things to combat the nagging tingling-numbness in both feet. Often in the middle of the night I experienced chronic itching deep in the middle of my left foot sole the nothing would relieve. I tried devices to stimulate circulation used lotions to combat the dry skin on the soles for my feet. Walking and balance were becoming a problem. Dr. LaBarbera advised SoftWave Therapy and I just completed a series of treatments and though healing will go on for an extended time, I want to tell all that my quality of life has been restored. I am in the process to have SoftWave Therapy on my knees. I have the upmost confidence in Dr. LaBarbera and his staff. Thank You John D

    Joshua Watkins

    Dr. Joe is a God send! I had suffered silently for quite some time with hip and knee pain making it difficult to do things I enjoyed without considerable discomfort...after taking x-rays, Dr. Joe discovered the issue and after just three adjustments, I'm back to normal. The pain and discomfort all gone...and WITHOUT drugs!!! I kick myself for waiting so long to say/do something about it, but so thankful for my terrific chiropractor!! He's the best!

    LaBarbera Chiropractic is hands down the best. I had a few other chiropractors earlier in my life, none of which made much difference in my quality of life. I stopped using chiropractic care for a good number of years, until I began to loose the ability to use my hands and could not sleep at night thanks to intense nerve pain from the elbows down. Other doctors said it was carpal tunnel, but my gut said no. Thanks to a friend of mine, I found LaBarbera, and in no time I regained full use of both of my arms/hands, and so much more! They treat the entire patient and not just 'back pain'.

    After 2 different Chiropractors and chronic back pain, a coworker recommended going to Dr Joe. The staff did a full assessment and helped me understand the root of my pain. Over the weeks I have regained mobility and pain is essentially gone thanks to Dr Joe's adjustments and guidance. I highly recommend LaBarbera Family Chiropractic to anyone seeking back/neck/spine help.

    I used to suffer from chronic back and neck pain along with GI issues. After seeing Dr. LaBarbera I finally have my symptoms under control and in just a couple months I am feeling like my old self again. Pain free and full of energy after suffering for over two years with no definitive direction from mainstream medical professionals. I cannot say enough about how great this office is and how much they have all helped me tremendously with my overall well-being. I would highly recommend anyone considering chiropractic care to call LaBarbera Family Chiropractic. You will not be disappointed.

    Excellent! Always feel better after treatment. Appreciate he will not treat you until an xray is done. Short wait time to be seen. Office staff always friendly and out going. Would highly recommend him, which I do.

    Elaine G.

    I travel almost 4 hours to see Dr. LaBarbera because he is one of the best chiropractors in the world. It is well worth the trip. His knowledge and techniques are the best I have experienced and I have seen many chiropractors thru out the United States !!!

    Web Review

    I have been a patient for 4 years now. I could not find pain relief anywhere else for a lower back issue and neck issue. Not only has the pain greatly subsided to virtually none, but I have also had less headaches/migraines and have not really been sick since beginning treatment there. Dr. Joe has also treated my teenage children for sports related issues with great success. Dr. Joe has a wealth of knowledge and training and the office staff is fantastic. Everyone there is very accommodating and compassionate, and they truly treat you like family. Dr. Joe is honest, thorough, and informative! There are so many issues that he can treat through chiropractic care- I find myself always telling people "You need Dr. Joe!"

    Web Review

    Dr. LaBarbera is undoubtably THE BEST chiropractor is our area. I’ve been going to him for well over 27 years. He always takes time with you and is very informative. If it were possible to double the amount of stars given on rating, he’d have a perfect 10!

    Mary L. Mercurio

    My son had back pain for a few years. He saw a chiropractor for about 6 months for adjustments (no x-rays done) which wasn’t helping. He got where he wasn’t sleeping at night. We decided to go to Dr LaBarbera and he did xrays finding a fracture in his low back. We didn’t know that we were actually making him worse by seeing the other chiropractor. He is now feeling so much better. Thank you for all your help!

    Web Review

    I have been seeing Dr.LaBarbera for over 14 years. He is the best in our area. I have recommended him to many people. He has answered questions during my visits. If I have more than a few questions, and wanted to talk for a longer time,he has called me later that evening and explained more info.to me. Who do you know that takes the time to inform you about success stories, give you info. about subjects he feels is beneficial to his patients? Yes, that is Dr. Joe! He has his newsletter every 3-4 months with all the above info, plus more. He is very knowledgeable and cares about his patients. I give him a 10!
