I was really skeptical. When I came to Dr Dan, my jaw hurt all the time, I had excruciating tension headaches that wrapped around my skull like a 2 inch wide Bandanna from an 80’s Hair band. The right side of my face had fallen sometime in 2006, and my smile was a hot-lopsided mess! The Facebook picture I have in which some accuse of being too sultry, was in fact an attempt to hide said lop-eared smile! I also had difficulty sleeping due to intense unrelenting pain between my shoulders. And I was grinding my teeth all night every night.
In the beginning, I would go to my appointments with him and just cry from relief. Then I would go directly home and nap for 2 hours – getting the best deepest rest I’d had in 3 years. I didn't know if any of this would help me, but I kept going as I had no diagnosis and therefore no treatment…and my symptoms were getting worse. It felt good to at least be doing SOMETHING.
I began to sleep better…my headaches diminished with in 1 month.
Within 4 months my smile was restored.
What I liked about working with Dr. Fedelli is that he was straight about getting me on a healing program and not interested in maintaining the frequency of my appointments. We started with 2 appointments / week, which quickly went to 1/wk, the every 2 weeks…then 1/month. After a year or so I felt pretty good and I had dropped out my appointments for a few months…slowly my neck bunched up and I was experiencing lower energy etc…I have to say when I returned 5 months later it only took 6 weeks to get back on track and return to sound sleeping once more."
I also appreciate the service of his staff, the private treatment rooms, and their sensitivity to my symptom of emotional liability.
I feel cared for and valued versus pursued as a revenue stream, which has been my experience of other chiropractors in the past.
