I always tell my collegues and student to turn to the excellent and kind Dr. Leonid Tafler in case of any accident or injury.


Dr. Tafler started working with me though acupuncture, back adjustments and immediately I saw the progress and my pain was less and less with every visit to the doctor. I avoided a surgery thanks to Dr Tafler. I started to enjoy my life again. I am so thankful to the doctor, and have been recommending Dr Tafler to all my friends and coworkers who have back problems and other pains.

Dr. Tafler recommended the OMT under anesthesia procedure. The procedure was performed and alleviated my pain immediately. I avoided surgery and have not had problems with my neck in 7 years now! I am so thankful to Dr. Tafler, the OMT under anesthesia procedure helped me so much!

Dr. Tafler took me in for a weekend to receive manipulation under anesthesia. Two weeks later I was able to walk without pain. I have been pain free since that moment until today, many years after initial treatment. Without his treatment I do not know if I would have been able to walk at all.

Doctor Tafler, was my savior and there is not doubt he give me my back life; this OMT under anesthesia definitely recommend to everyone, this improve my back and relief a chronic pain. Try this before any aggressive treatment, this was over 5 years ago and I feel splendidly.


Two weeks ago I came to his office. He is a very nice and very pleasant man. I told him about a terrible pain in my back. He gave me two injections and I was able to walk a lot better. I felt myself at my twenties. When I went for the second treatment under anesthesia, I was running up the stairs at my church. All my friends got very happy for me. So, I believe, this man is a hero! If not him, I would not be able to walk!
