For the first time in years I feel hopeful about my ability to be helped with my pain. I’ve seen many practitioners in many fields and none were as thorough and explicit about what their part is in my recovery and supportive of what my part is. Their motto is “expect miracles” and I’m beginning to believe it’s true!

-June L.


The genuine warmth and smiles of the staff, Dr Cameron and Dr Paterna made me feel great without anything else. After Dr Paterna adjusted me I felt even better! I could tell he and Dr Cameron were genuinely listening to me and they didn’t make me feel rushed. Instead, they made me feel heard and that impressed me. Definitely coming back!

-Genise S.


Great “bedside manner”. I walked in with low expectations because of the duration of injuries I’ve sustained but I left with high hopes. I also feel confident that the treatment plan will help a great deal. Never felt rushed and the environment was calm. I usually dislike going to doctor’s appointments because they’re usually stressful but this visit was not. 10/10 would recommend.

-Alexus M.


Dr. Paterna and his associates are gracious and professional and provide exceptional chiropractic care. Dr. Paterna spent a lot of time with me in the consultation/assessment/x-ray appointment and was very informative about the practice. He addressed all of my questions and concerns and carefully walked me through the results of my nerve scan on a computer. He then explained in detail how he could help me with my neck and back issues. After the first adjustment, I felt so much better and my symptoms decreased considerably. I am scheduled for my third adjustment and feel improvements physically and feel sharper mentally. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a practitioner.

-Helen M.


I have gone to every doctor I can think of for the pain in my back and haven’t found relief. I am hoping and believing that this is the treatment I need to get to the source of my problem. I was impressed with the thoroughness of Dr. Paterna”s evaluation of my issues and I am looking forward to feeling better. Thank you!

-Cheryl E.

  • I would also point out that this treatment is also very affordable. For people with high-deductible insurance plans like I have, that’s important.

    -Jill D.
  • I truly was very happy with every aspect of this lovely office! Thanks so much for making my body feel so much better after only two adjustments!

    -Lisa C.
  • I never thought I could get rid of my chronic sinus infections. After 30 years of suffering, I haven’t had 1 infection since beginning care 6 months ago. I am forever grateful.

    -Anthony C.
  • This was the best pregnancy! I suffered from severe back and neck pain my first 2 pregnancies. My midwife & OB told me to try Shoreline Family Chiropractic and I’m grateful I did. No pain and easy labor for #3!! I even had my son’s spine checked at 1 week old!

    -Christine G.
  • I hurt my back 20 years ago in a fire. I was told I would have to live with my back and leg pain forever. After a few weeks of care, my pain is practically gone and I am able to play with kids. No more pain medications. Thank you!!

    -John P.
  • My first adjustment was terrific! I instantly felt a release in my mid back, and I feel so much more limber already! I will no doubt be a frequent client.

  • I have hope. It’s something I haven’t had in four years. I had a very bad traumatic injury and after eight surgeries and constant pain I have hope. I take no pain management so my life is severely limited at my young age. The staff actually cares about their patients.
