(pronounced "you-ta")(Chiropractic Assistant / Therapist): Jutta has been a professional CA in the chiropractic field for 2 decades. She brings a great deal of experience and knowledge as well as her unique perspective to our office and patients. Jutta keeps our patients smiling and is the go-to person for questions regarding home therapies and pillows, cushions and other health aids for your home. She received her Chiropractic Assistant certification through New York College of Chiropractic. You will encounter Jutta performing therapies as well as greeting and checking patients out. If Jutta cannot get you smiling, no one can. We are confident you will enjoy her.
We also have special associate staff whose jobs consist of greeting, welcoming, guarding over and comforting our patients. Between our parrot, our dog and the multiple saltwater reef aquariums and their many inhabitants, you will never feel alone in our office. Our intention is that this will add to the comfort and warmth of our facility and make you feel more at home.
Boz . . . Boz is our newest of 4 airedales we have had in our office throughout our 26 years of practice and he may well be the most loving, gentle, relaxed and friendly greeter of all of them. Boz is of championship lineage from Nova Scotia. He is 4 years old and, right from puppyhood, immediately established himself as a favorite of our patients. Like Sedge, Dex and Dari before him, Boz takes his greeting responsibilities very seriously and is also in charge of demonstrating proper relaxation and stretching.
Al . . . Al is our resident facility director. He is a 19-year old Lilac-Crowned Amazon Parrot and he resides in the Caj Mahal (his well-appointed cage in the doctor's office). A steady stream of comments and songs emanate from Al's residence. He certainly adds to the character of the place and we find that kids visiting our office particularly enjoy this character. Al absolutely loves to interact with and entertain children and they love him.
Nemo & co. . . . don your mask and fins . . . we have fabulous saltwater aquariums, including one large tank with big, colorful pelagic fish from three different oceans and an outstanding mature reef tank with a myriad of fascinating creatures and soft corals that can captivate your attention for a long time. It is our hope and intention that all of these combine to help you relax during your time with us. Kids are mesmerised and adults are relaxed looking at these reef communities.
Welcome to our menagerie. We hope our entire team makes you feel more comfortable as we work together with you to help you reach your health goals.
