Sold on the First Visit

I have been a patient of Dr. Coffman’s for a number of years. The first visit sold me. I had been having right arm pain for several months and had seen an orthopedic surgeon and a chiropractor without relief. Dr. Coffman assessed my situation and the arm pain and made a diagnosis of radial-head dysfunction. She treated the cause of the chronic dysfunction with a gentle manipulation and energy work for the emotion involved. The pain resolved completely in that session and did not return! –Elizabeth A.
