I originally met Coach Dr. D on my very first training ride with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's "Team In Training" in 2003. I was in awe of his wealth of knowledge in sports and wellness. Just to think, that an athlete such as he, would take the time to train a "newbie" like myself was overwhelming. As my training progressed, my body was stretched over the frame of my bike and the aches and pains began. Dr. D suggested I should schedule an appointment in his office for an examination. I have always been hesitant to be treated by a Chiropractor mainly due to my lack of knowledge.

I reluctantly went for my first appointment. Dr. D knew I was apprehensive and reassured me and detailed the necessity and outcome of the treatment. I felt confident in his professionalism and knowledge. I was relieved and my body no longer ached from the stress of the cycling position. I continued with the adjustments and my posture took on a new appearance and I felt great!

I feel that Dr. D has hands of gold and he is an asset to his profession. When he relocated to Florida, I, as well as the rest of the team, felt a loss of a good doctor and a good friend. I know for sure that when I am in the Pompano Beach or Lighthouse Point area, I am stopping in to see him for a "tune-up"! You will truly be gifted to be treated by Dr. D. He is one of a kind.

My name is Dr. Leon Gonyo and I have experienced first hand what it is like to have extreme neck pain. I unfortunately have three herniated discs in my neck which now requires me to have continuing chiropractic and sometimes acupuncture care. I have found Dr. Harkins and Dr. Ortega to be absolutely wonderful, caring, and knowledgeable doctors and would highly recommend them for any of your health care needs. I am very particular with the chiropractors that I personally see and not every doctor is one that I can stand behind; however I especially appreciate Dr. D and Dr. O. Great work guys.

After many years of suffering from daily headaches and tired of taking over the counter medications I decided to go down a different route and that's when I discovered the benefits of going to a chiropractor. Dr. Harkins and Dr. Ortega enlightened me as to the many ailments that can be resolved naturally through chiropractic. Needless to say I no longer suffer from those horrible headaches. I go to their office regularly for adjustments and truly believe that many others can benefit from chiropractic. Dr. Ortega and Dr. Harkins have made me feel comfortable and are very personable and likable. Look no further. This is the place to go.

After years of suffering from chronic low back pain, I decided to find a chiropractor who could get me out of pain and keep me that way. I found two! Dr. Harkins and Dr. Otega from Lighthouse Chiropractic. They adjusted me, gave me nutritional counseling, personalized an exercise program for me and just really improved the quality of my life. I have been pain-free for months. I am back to playing tennis and really enoying life. Thanks Dr. D and Dr. O"
