“I have been going to Thompson Healthcare and Sports Medicine for 10 years. You will not find better care or treatment. This is not your Grandma’s chiropractor! Having taught Elementary PE for 35 years and participating in many sports; my body needed help. Going to Thompson was the best decision ever. I feel great! The addition of acupuncture is a huge plus, having made a big difference in my recovery from extensive foot/ ankle surgery. (I admit to being skeptical at first) Thank you Treayor! You won’t find better doctors and the staff ma... Read More Testimonials
“My children have been seeing Dr. Tara for the past 4 years! They love her so much that my daughter wants to see her every week! When they’re hanged up from everyday play, she fixes them right up but most importantly, she helps them when they are sick from ear infections, colds, sinus infections or fevers. I bring them to Dr. Tara instead of my pediatrician and I never have to give medicine. I always go to Dr. Tara first before calling the pediatrician. I don’t like putting medicine into their bodies unless it is necessary and most of the... Read More Testimonials

“My family and I have been treated at Thompson Healthcare and Sports Medicine since 2008. I have been very pleased with the treatment and care we have received. The staff is wonderful.

“As an eighth-grade student-athlete from Lacey, I started coming to Thompson Healthcare & Sports Medicine. Now ten years later, I am still coming and have been thankful for every visit. Dr. Rob and staff have kept me “game ready” and competing at a high level since day one. Going to Monmouth University, I was able to see the staff on a regular basis. Playing Division One football, I suffered many injuries, but with the help of the staff, I was always game ready. Now with the new addition of Treayor with acupuncture, my recoveries have hap...

My legs hurt, my ribs hurt, my neck hurt…actually, pretty much everything hurt! Dr. Rob has been a godsend to not just me, but to my entire family. I umpire softball at a very high level and Rob has kept my body together and moving well. I could not have come so far health-wise without this incredible place!”View All Testimonials
“I never believed in chiropractic. I suffered with a herniated disc in my neck and went for physical therapy. It helped but didn’t last. Then I developed a herniated disc and arthritis in my lower back and could not sit down. A friend suggested Dr. Rob and I was in so much pain, I made an appointment. Within one month of treatment, I could sit without pain! I have recommended the practice to so many who have had complete success! If you’re in pain, go see Dr. Rob!”View All Testimonials
“My experience at Thompson Healthcare has been so much more beneficial than I thought it could be! Dr. Erin is very easy to talk to and she understands my needs with my multiple medical conditions. Acupuncture has been a welcome addition to my time at Thompson. I wanted a holistic approach to my medical problems and the entire staff has been helpful in making me feel better. The massage is relaxing and Mary Beth is as responsive to my need as the rest of the staff. I always feel welcomed and cared for here and my general health and sense of w... Read More Testimonials
“We were skeptical at first to see a chiropractor but are so glad we decided to stick with it. Our family has benefited more than words can say from our years of adjustments. I would have had to go to an orthopedist and probably had surgery if it wasn’t for Dr. Rob. Our son was born prematurely and Dr. Tara has helped with his digestive issues. Steve has been able to keep up with his races due to his regular adjustments from Dr. Rob. The staff is always a pleasure and makes you feel like part of a family!” - Bukowinski FamilyView All Testimonials

"Patient Liam from the Bayville office has suffered from really bad seasonal allergies for the past couple of years, especially with him being outside on the field during football practice. He has been getting treated during his routine adjustments with footbaths, getting his sinuses treated, and doing the allergy elimination technique. His seasonal allergies are so much better now! The allergy elimination technique can also treat other types of allergies, which Liam is taking advantage of now that he’s home from school!”View All Testimonials
“I was running, and I couldn’t breathe. I couldn’t see well, and my vision was blurry all the time. I wanted to scratch my eyes out. I was itchy and uncomfortable with seasonal allergies. I came in for a chiropractic adjustment because I was running regularly and Dr. Rob said: “I think I have the treatment for you.” So I started the allergy elimination treatment, and I have not been suffering from seasonal allergies ever since. If there is a little twinge and I feel like something is bothering me, I come in, and they test me for whate... Read More Testimonials
“Current patient, Deb D. started coming to the office after an allergy dinner talk, where she learned how we can holistically treat seasonal allergies. Deb suffered from congestion and a dry cough that would always result in a sinus infection every time the seasons changed or plants bloomed. She finished the allergy program approximately 1 year ago and hasn’t experienced any of her usual symptoms since. Deb is more than happy with her results and continues to do occasional treatments to help her maintain her amazing results.”View All Testimonials
