Lori Portnoy

There is something that I think
about often, there are many Chiropractors out there. Why come to me? There may
be someone else closer to where you live. I have patients who move to the
suburbs and still drive into the city to see me. How lucky am I? Part of that
is a skill set.

Hopefully, once you have done
something for 37 years you get good at it. I have a technique that is a little
less forceful than some others so people prefer that type of touch. But that
isn’t the whole of it. I still get up every Monday morning and look forward to
the new week at my office. I can’t wait to see how those patients I worked with
the week before are doing. Were they able to do those things they couldn’t
because they are feeling better?

Sometimes just getting a good
nights sleep is huge. Maybe they were able to run, or play with their kid, or
sit in the car for a long ride without pain. I have many patients that came to
me for health maintenance that I have seen on and off for years. They are like
extended family members. I have watched their kids grow up and have their own

I love what I do and am still
passionate about it. My patients know that. That to me is the biggest key to my
success. I am so thankful that at this point in my career my practice is
referral based. People send in others because they know who I am.”
