Success Stories

My experience in the care of Dr. Shea has truly been lifesaving at a time when I was feeling really stuck with my health. I have been suffering from an autoimmune disorder and every day was an uphill battle dealing with debilitating fatigue, joint paint and body aches. Thankfully, Dr. Shea has been able to turn things around for me so I can live the life I want to live.


I’ve been a patient for almost 2 years. My husband and I were trying to conceive and had tried IVF. Dr. Shea helped balance my hormones, discovered some underlying conditions that were affecting my fertility. After 3 months of working with Dr. Shea, my digestion and improved, supplements has helped my skin, but most importantly, I became pregnant and delivered a healthy baby boy. 


I struggled for two years with constant diarrhea, seeing my primary doctor and specialists and their best advice was to keep taking Imodium. My daughter found Dr. Shea on the web and she discovered some food sensitivities on the first visit. I’m like a new man. I can go for a walk, go to work, go out with friends, all without fear of an embarrassing accident. I feel much healthier, happier and more confident!


I have been struggling with IBS-D and fatigue for a very long time. I went to various doctors, tried different diets, medications, and my symptoms didn’t change and sometimes they worsened. It was very frustrating and kept me from doing many things. My life has changed in so many ways since seeing Dr. Shea.  My IBS-D is now livable and is 100 times better. We work on whatever comes up with great results. Dr. Shea listens and acknowledges and makes your visit a pleasant one. The whole office is great. Johnny at the desk is pleasant and very efficient. I would recommend Dr. Shea to anyone looking for answers, a plan and results to better health.


I have found Dr. Shea to be a great blessing on my journey to better health. Her approach to wellness is based on finding the root cause of your illness and then supporting the healing process through diet, exercise, supplements etc.. She not only listens but I believe she genuinely cares about her clients. If you are similar to me and have been through the quick fix and symptom masking pills of modern medicine and still not well, give Dr. Shea a chance to help you. You will not be disappointed! My PCP respects Dr. Shea's treatments.  I've been back for various ailments over the past 20+ years; each of which is met with a focused approach resulting in the desired result. Add in great conversation and a genuine caring attitude - truly a winning combination. I have recommended her many times to my friends.


I have been a patient of Dr. Shea for over 10 years. A few years ago I was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma and underwent chemo and immunotherapy. During my cancer journey, the chiropractic care, acupuncture and other treatments I received at her office were absolutely essential to my healing. I’ve been NED for 3 years, and I believe that Dr. Shea and her staff are a big reason for that. They literally helps keep my body and spirit strong while I fought for my life.
