Many patients come to us after seeing their primary care physician, who only offered drugs for their symptoms. But drugs do not work well on many problems. Come see why out approach to health care is better.

Dr. Bateman and Dr. Gatrost are licensed chiropractic physicians in the State of Missouri and both graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College.​
