“Larry defines ‘integrated medicine.’  I have been treated for back and neck pain for over 35 years and will emphatically say that Dr. Larry Shank works miracles. His approach of integrating all of his vast experience, techniques and best practices into each and every patient and appointment make Larry stand out as a true healer and caring physician. I recommend Larry to friends and family and consider any who get to see him fortunate for the experience.”

“Over the course of many years, Dr. Shank was my ONLY doctor. Even when there was nothing wrong, I’d go see him for what I liked to call ‘tune-ups.’ This practice kept me from ever needing to see a ‘medical’ doctor. It’s all about prevention! Dr. Shank has unusual skills for a ‘doctor of chiropractic.’ That is to say, he uses many different techniques, all specific to the individual. It is, without question, one of the things that make him such an exceptional doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Shank to anyone who wishes to return to the wellness that is their birthright. He has an extraordinary gift and he shares it with anyone who comes through his door. You won’t be sorry.”
