I have been receiving maintenance care for my back for over 15 years. Recently I relocated to Odenton, MD and needed to find a new chiropractor.. I made an appointment with Dr. Scanlon and was not disappointed. Dr. Scanlon is an excellent chiropractor. After my first visit the back seizure that I would feel while getting into the car or getting up from a soft chair has completely disappeared. On top of that I am able to do more heavy work around the house with no or minimal pain.

-Walter L.

Dr. Scanlon is a terrific practitioner. She took the time to listen and to understand why I was there. She explained her planned treatment plan and then did an excellent job on my first adjustments. I look forward to continuing to improve my health by visiting Dr. Scanlon.

-Barbara C.

I was very happy with the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. The facility is clean and well kept.

-Raymond G.

Thank you for your continued support. Dr. Judy is AWESOME!!!

Years in pain, and tired of painful shots and sick of opioids to control the pain. I resisted the surgeons recommendation to fuse my neck. I decide to visit after I got a great recommendation from a friend to see Dr. Keys. It’s been 6 months now and I see him once a month for maintenance, which has kept the pain down to a mild discomfort. I wish I had know about chiropractic years ago. Also interesting is there are several styles of this profession and Dr. Keys is very gentle and proficient in his skill.

Had a painful pinch in my neck, that my doctor referred me to a surgeon. That was not an option in my mind. After doing some checking around, I tried Dr. Keys. I’ve went through a period of weekly visits for a month and then started spacing them out for maintenance. It’s been over 2 years now and I’m feel I made the right choice. Once a month visit vs. surgery is no comparison.

-Hector G.

My doctor sent me to the surgeon for a painful nerve pinch in my neck which caused pain in my upper arm and numbness with a tingling in my fingers. Basically I stopped using my right arm, if was awful even just trying to sleep was an effort. 

After much research and talking to the surgeon I was more convinced then ever not to go this route unless absolutely being my last hope. I would rather see a witch doctor first. I looked into chiropractic after my bathroom contractor Paul recommended Dr. Keys as he had help him with a similar problem.

I got a thorough examine and recommended treatment plan, which involved multiple visits the first month and then start scaling back for maintenance once the pain was gone. 

It’s been over a year now and I feel 20 years younger with once a month visits, now with full range of motion in my arm I could only dream about before. It’s amazing that adjusting one’s vertebra could eliminate the nerve pinch and offer complete relief. There are several disciplines in chiropractic practice and I’ll feel like I lucked out finding Dr. Keys and his style of homeopathic care and gentle touch. If you’re in pain you don’t have to suffer any longer.

Great experience at both the Bowie and Waugh Chapel locations. The first time I went to them I was 24 because I had horrible neck pain almost all the time. Good thing I went because after the X-Ray we found the problem and caught it early before it turned into something really bad. I’ve gotten adjusted by both Dr. DeMaio and Dr. Jim at the Waugh chapel location and both are great. For past year I’ve been going to the Bowie location to see Dr. Keyes. Dr. Keyes is awesome he has helped me get rid of a lot of pain that I thought would never go away.

Pain that I believe is associated with working out and my job. He adjusts me, performs the Graston Technique and Dry Needling. He is a specialist when it comes to the Graston Technique and Myofascial Dry Needling. Thanks to him I have regained my full range of motion in many areas of my body that I thought I lost permanently. Areas like my chest, upper back, shoulders hamstrings and calves. He definitely knows what he is doing which is very reassuring and important to me.

-Frank G.

I turned to chiropractic care in desperation during a difficult pregnancy. When I met Dr. Keyes, I knew nothing about chiropractic care, but I could hardly sleep because of the pain. His gentle demeanor helped calm my anxiety, and he always took the time to explain everything and answer any questions I had. It is obvious that he loves educating his patients. In addition, I could always find an appointment that fit my crazy schedule, and I never had to wait long.

-Oregon Bug

I have been going to DeMaio Family Chiropractic & Physical Therapy since I moved to the area 5 years ago. All of the Doctors and Staff are friendly and helpful. I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. More importantly though, I have experienced real benefits from the treatments. I have lower back issues and regular adjustments help tremendously. When I do have a flare-up in symptoms, I usually get relief in just a visit or two. As an active 59 year old, I have also had great experience with the physical therapy provided when I over-do things. With a history of old injuries, I do have some adhesions that give me problems and Dr Keyes has done wonders for them using the Graston Technique. He was even able to resolve my plantar fasciitis in a few visits!

-Rosalie M.

Great Service Great Price Friendly Talented What More Could You Ask For! I had horrible pain going down my right arm and numb fingers. I had a nerve being pinched in my neck from a water skiing mishap 20 years earlier. My doctor sent me to a surgeon who wanted to fuse my neck. NO WAY, I looked around for a holistic cure. I heard some bad stuff about Chiropractors so I was a bit skeptical. Dr John DeMaio said to give him 3 visits and I should see relief. Suffering miserably I agreed, well 3 visits 3 days apart and sure enough, felt a great relief.

Then he wanted me to come once a week. After a couple of months I was able to stretch it out to two weeks then several months later I started going once a month. Well after a year I was 20 years younger and had full range of motion again, so I stop going. FOOLISH ME, after a couple of months, I was right back to were I was. I accepted the fact that I had real damage to my neck and would need lifetime Chiropractic care, which over having my neck fused was a bargain. The small fee along with my insurance was a no brainer. Dr. John opened another office closer to my home in Bowie and I met Dr James Keys equally gifted as Dr DeMaio. Five minutes once a month to keep my full range of motion is priceless. If you have any doubts about getting help from DeMaio Family Clinic for neck or back pain banish them and make an appointment RIGHT NOW, I’m glad I did.

This is a quality place. I only post reviews when I am very happy…or very not. 
5 stars. I had looked for a chiropractor online and couldn’t find one that spoke “professional business” when I walked in the door. The receptionist was beyond friendly, and not only did I receive great care, but it has a real family vibe. Dr. Jones is extremely nice. I got a free hot/cold pack when I left, and that sealed the deal.

-Allison C.

I suffered with lower back pain for many years. It was to the point every morning was a very painful experience to get going. Within a few months of coming to Dr. Pellerin I had relief at last. It was not just the about treatments. It was also taking time to understand me and then recommend changes I could make to improve my results. I cannot describe the improvement in my quality of life. When I visit the office it is always a friendly feeling of how can they improve my life not just another treatment. I have family, friends and neighbors that all share my reverence for Dr. Pellerin.

-David D.

I came to see Dr. Pellerin after several people referred me to her. I had been dealing with chronic sciatic pain along my right side and through regular treatments with her, it’s all but gone! The office is clean and the staff is very friendly. Never a problem getting an appointment last minute. I also love that this is a small office where you feel like you are a patient and not just another number coming through the doors.

-Alison H.

I had a sports injury which resulted in a lot of lower back pain. It didn’t improve after a week. I had never been to a chiropractor before, but was recommended to see Dr. Pellerin as one of her specialties is in this area. I started feeling better after a few days and was given a clear and easy to understand treatment plan. They also worked with my insurance, explained my coverage and how much it was going to cost. I now get regular adjustments as part of my overall health and well being regime and haven’t looked back since.

-Dave M.

I went to see Dr. Pellerin with neck pain. I no longer have the intense neck and shoulder pain. Since I was feeling so good, I started taking my daughter for her allergies and overall health. She has not had any earaches in more than two years, only a couple of colds, and her allergies are much better. THANK YOU DR. PELLERIN. Staff is always nice and not a long wait

-Ange V.

Office Environment Clean; Staff is friendly and organized. Wait is usually under 5 minutes; Get appts easily; drive an hour to see Doctor and get great adjustments!

-Michelle B.

Very welcoming office and friendly staff, I would recommend to anyone in need of chiropractic care!

-Julie G.

I started seeing Dr. Pellerin for back pain and she was able to help me. When I learned all the different things she could do for children I brought in my 5 yr old son. He was having problems with wetting the bed at night and now his bed has been dry for months!!! After that I decided to also bring in my 2 yr old son! I trust Dr. Pellerin with my kids and would recommend her to anyone!!!

I received phenomenal treatment during my initial session this morning after experiencing chronic, severe pain the past few weeks due to a recent accident. Dr. Osborn was outstanding — both as a listener and as a Dr. I highly recommend this facility and Dr. Give them a shot if you’re in pain!

-Justin M.

Excellent service and care I received. The doctor really helped with nerve pain going down my shoulder making my fingers numb. I’ll need continued adjustments to keep this from happening but well worth it to avoid surgery.

-Peggy M.

Excellent visit! I received exceptional care. The doctor thoroughly answered all of my questions and the staff were very attentive. The adjustment itself felt wonderful and I look forward to my next appointment.

-Jennifer H.

Both times I went to DeMaio Chiropractic (Bowie MD location) I was forgotten about. I’d have an appointment for one time and end up waiting 60-90 mins before I was even seen. Both times the Dr told me “He didn’t know I was there”. I do find that hard to believe because he came out to get the other patients. Not quite sure how he could miss me but I do not think Ill be going here again.

-Amber S.

We are proud to say our wait time has always been very good. We have a 10 minute wait policy and if a patient has to wait due to an emergency we offer them a free movie ticket. We still have a full book of movie tickets!! We searched our database for an Amber Scott which does not exist in our system. Our Bowie office reception room is impossible to miss a patient. We are not sure WHERE this negative review came from. We have NEVER had a negative review in 24+yrs of excellent service. We recently won the 2013 Angie’s List Service Award !!

-Shannon D.

The care and attention that was given was outstanding!

Amazing chiropractic care! I started taking my son around 9 months to help with ear infections and she has been such a great help and hasn’t had one since! My 4 year old daughter also goes just monthly for maintenance. Both children love her, she is great with kids! I also have been treated and really enjoyed the dry needling technique. She is very knowledgeable and truly committed to helping you find the right treatment plan. The front desk staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone looking for a chiropractor!

I have gone here since September 2007 and I still make the 30 minute drive to come here. Dr. Lindauer and Dr. DeMaio are very good and caring chiropractors. Their values are based on natural, homeopathic and holistic health care, so they will always opt for treatment before surgery. I have found that they are both attentive and competent; they will always make sure that you are comfortable since you know your body best. Their in-house massage therapist, Kim Trudo is really amazing.

She has a gift for getting into your tight muscles and getting out the knots. I get so relaxed from her massages that I feel like lead when I try to get up.  It’s an awesome, yet freaky feeling. I have come to know their staff and they are all kind professionals.

Their receptionists are friendly and helpful, their therapists are patient and talkative :) since they like to get to know you. I may have to find a new doctor to get something closer, but I really like going there. Their waiting area is relaxing. They have an aquarium, a massage chair that I like to wait in sometimes and bunch of reading materials and a small TV. I especially like the complimentary teas they offer while waiting.

As someone who already has doubts about the benefits of chiropractic care, my experience with this practice did not help that opinion. Each appointment was very short, and I was strongly encouraged to return at least 3 (if not more) times per week. Don’t get me wrong – the doctors were very nice and personable; however, I felt very pushed into their treatment plan – not allowed to make my own. The final straw was being treated very rudely by the front desk when I made it clear that I could not immediately schedule a next appointment. My suggestion would be that if you are interested in finding a good chiropractor, shop around.

Shoveling snow I seemed to have hurt my back, ice packs, heat packs, way to many aspirin. The awful pain when I’m standing up just became to much. I’ve never been to a Chiropractor before so didn’t know what to expect. They checked me out, and gave me a mild electric stimulate alone with a heat pad for like 10 minutes. The Doc followed with several adjustments, which brought near immediate relief. He recommended several more visits to be sure the problem was solved, which I did and now two weeks later feeling great. Nice folks, took my insurance had a small co-pay. Much better than going to a MD. and getting nothing but pain pills that just mask the problem. They actually go after the real issue and correct it.
