RateaBiz Reviews

I am grateful for the incredible amount of trust that people grant me. To allow someone to enter your mouth, cut/carve/whittle/whatever you want to call it on your teeth, bone, and/or gum tissues is a scary/anxiety-producing/nerve-racking/unpleasant experience. And I appreciate, I am certain not fully, the trust/confidence/hope/faith that people exercise...

Kids and Chiropractic

Why We March

Marching is not about Trump. It’s not about pandas. It’s not about groping or tax returns or even deporting the mother of four U.S. citizens because she used a fake id to get a job cleaning motel rooms 20 years ago. It’s about survival. I’m not talking just about you...
