  • We are scheduling Socially Distanced Appointments. This means limiting the schedule so there are no more than 2 people in the waiting / office area. This also gives us ample time to sanitize treatment rooms after each person.

Cleaning Procedures

Here are our cleaning procedures which we use each cold and flu season (remember COVID-19 is their cousin):

  • Treatment Tables are wiped down often with an anti-viral formula.
  • We use a superior Medical Disinfectant, which kills 99.999% of Bacterial and Viral germs.
  • We have antiviral hand soap and paper towels in our restrooms. Right now we are insisting on hand washing upon entering and leaving the office.
  • Doorknobs, counters and the restrooms are frequently and thoroughly cleaned & sanitized.
  • The carpet is cleaned regularly.
  • We have wall mounted hand sanitizer in our entrance hall and anti-viral wipes and sanitizer in each treatment room for your personal use.

We continue to closely monitor this public health situation daily and provide our patients with the most current and vital information from the State and National sources.

If you have any concerns, please ask Dr. Smith (drsmith@drpatricksmith.com), Carrie or Lia (officemanager@drpatricksmith.com) at any time!

We are here to help and together we will all get through this viral season healthy.

Chiropractic Client Testimonial: Paul Gibbons

Chiropractic Client Testimonial: On August 2,1989 I was driving home from visiting my brother. As I was crossing the Weston Canal Causeway in Manville, NJ I noticed a dump truck approaching me. The truck was fishtailing back and forth as the driver swung the steering wheel left and right. He was towing a large six wheeled trailer filled with commercial lawn mowers and leaf blowers. The trailer struck the bridge abutment, was lofted over the truck and crashed on the top of my car.

The roof was lower than the steering wheel. I was knocked unconscious by the violence of the crash. The first thing I remember was a man standing by the side of my car saying I am the captain of a rescue squad and I think you are badly hurt, don’t try to move. Followed immediately by another man who said I think your car is on fire, you better get out fast. I slid to the right side of the car managed to open the passenger-side door part way and squirmed out of the car.

The rescue squad arrived, strapped me to a body board and took me to the emergency room. The doctor diagnosed a broken neck and verified his diagnosis with x-rays. The doctor immobilized my head and neck with a device for this purpose and emergency surgery was scheduled for the next day.

I was told it would be a two to three hour operation. In the event I was on the table for ten hours. The doctor had screwed a metal plate on the front of my cervical spine along with bone grafts to fuse and immobilize my spine.

The immobilization caused a great deal of pain and loss of motion in turning my head. This loss of motion is of course permanent and began to cause stress to other parts of my spine. After a course of physical therapy I was allowed to return to work.

I was not a stranger to chiropractic; I had seen two or three doctors previous to the accident. But it was at this time that I had the great good fortune to meet and be treated by Dr. Patrick Smith. Dr. Smith is an extraordinary diagnostician and superb practitioner of his science and art. As pain and stiffness worsened Pat developed a course of treatment that was, and is, most effective in keeping me mobile, flexible and almost, but not entirely, pain free.

After such a serious accident I say that I have just enough pain to remind me to thank God that I can feel anything. And also grateful to God for putting me in Dr. Smith’s more than capable hands.
