I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Sjogren’s Syndrome in 2009. I started seeing Dr. Susan shortly after that. I remember being very impressed with her gentle approach. Up until that point I had seen chiropractors since I was a teenager, so I had high expectations as a “veteran chiro” patient. One of my biggest complaints to her was that in my past experience, once my chiropractor had gotten comfortable with me and my body, that they would become lax in my treatment. They would stop asking me how I was feeling, and just assume that I needed the same “cookie cutter” adjustments that they give everyone else. I told her that if she did that to me that that would be a deal breaker! Dr. Susan understood that. I have been seeing her for about a year and a half now and I will have to say, she has NEVER given me a “cookie cutter”, “cattle call” adjustment the whole time! She is very gentle, which is very important to fibromyalgia patients. She has always been genuine in her care for me and my family. My husband, daughter, sister, and two of my nieces all come to SUNU for their chiropractic care. We all know that we can count on Dr. Susan to make us feel better.
SUNU has so much more to offer than chiropractic though. I have also had the pleasure of seeing one of their acupuncturists, Aimee. Aimee has a gentle spirit about her as well. She took the time to hear my story and came up with a healing program just for me. She was very thorough with me in my initial exam. I was very nervous because I am one of those people who wouldn’t get acupuncture because I was afraid of the needles. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed and talked me through each little prick. Now I’m not afraid at all! Whenever I come to her with an inflamed “whatever”, she always knows exactly how to treat it.
All the staff at SUNU are great! Their new space is fabulous. It feels like a spa overlooking a beautiful pond with wildlife. Everyone there is interested in my well-being. They are an amazing group of people who really care about their patients and they are so passionate about what they do. Good quality folks! I am very grateful that I have the opportunity to be a part of their health care system.
