Dr. Ryan McDaid is no longer with our practice. Dr. Abby Heppner will be available to continue your chiropractic care as needed.
If you wish to continue seeing Dr. McDaid in his new private practice, we understand. We only ask that you let our office know your intent so that we can help get you connected with his new office, send along your chart notes as needed, and so we can remove you from future mailings and marketing messaging. Please call our office at your convenience.
Dr. Heppner’s husband, Robb, was diagnosed with brain cancer (glioblastoma) in December 2016. She will be taking time off periodically to be with him for treatments in 2018. While she appreciates your support, she would like to keep your appointments focused on you and your health so she can continue to help as many patients as possible during her time in the office.
Dr. Heppner asks only for your prayers for healing and strength throughout this time.
