Dr. Donald DeFabio
Chiropractic Physician, Chief of Chiropractic Services


I believe that health is wealth!

Dr. DeFabio graduated from Trinity College and New York Chiropractic College and has been in practice since 1984. He has a chiropractic, sports medicine, orthopedic, nutrition, and personal training background.

His philosophy in patient care is to treat you like he would treat himself, his wife or his children. He has personally benefited from all of the techniques, therapies, exercises and home care products so he may better relate to my patients. Of course, if a referral is necessary, I will recommend a patient outside for a second opinion.

My commitment to you is to exceed your expectations and deliver #TheDeFabioDifference!

Dr. Amanda Occhipinti, DAc., Dipl. Ac., FNS.
