Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Moore does a great job seen him after a car wreck in October and he was able to get both me and my dad in right away and was willing to work with us on times that worked for us in clouding be for businesses hrs."
    Harley Young
  • "I've been to so many chiropractors, and this is the only place I've gone where my neck and my back have stayed in place after only two adjustments! Dr. John Moore it's professional, kind, and also one of the few doctors I've been to who isn't stuck up. Which is honestly very refreshing to me! I live 40 minutes away from Ames now, but no question about it, anytime I have neck or back trouble I'm coming back to Dr. Moore."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
