    I am so fortunate that my husband introduced me to Dr. Dee and her "healing hands". I have been seeing her for almost a month, and my chronic back pain has improved dramatically. I look forward to our visits and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to truly heal their bodies. . - Kristen Chase

    Not sure what my husband would have done without Dr. Dee. She has continually sought out new techniques to help him. I can say without a doubt, my husband would not be where he is without her guidance. - Audreanna Hoyt

    I came into the clinic with chronic back pain. As an athlete I was looking for anything to make me feel the slightest bit better. After a few months, Dr.Dee was not only able to make me feel significantly better but I no longer had that nagging pain while lifting! She's a life saver! - Victoria Hartline

    I heard about Dr. Dee though a friend and must say I'm glad I listened. I've been to a few chiropractors before and she is by far the most thorough of all. She treats the whole body, not just back issues. I've had pain in my toes that I had resigned myself to live with, but she even helped with that. I send all my friends to her now. - d.w

    Dr. Dee is awesome! I thought walking around with tightness in my neck, feeling like I was in constant need for a neck massage was just normal. Now I know it's not and it is SO nice to not feel like that any more! Thanks Dr. Dee. We are lucky to have you in Murfreesboro!! - Nan Norsby
