John Maher, Dr.

Dr. John Maher's Valley Center Chiropractic and Holistic Care is conveniently located in "The Court Yard" in the middle of Valley Center.
For some, finding and choosing the right doctor with the skill, experience, education, integrity, technical training, tools and skills in chiropractic, nutrition and alternative medicine who can help you get well without drugs or surgery can be a daunting task.
For others, finding a doctor who is on your insurance or Medicare plan, or has reasonable fees and a sliding scale for children, students, military families and seniors, can be challenging as well.
Still others like to read Testimonials and Reviews, or see Awards like those listed on my web site.

Dr John has helped me tremendously since 2014. He helps me with chronic stress management and back issues. I trust him more with my health than I do any primary care physician I have ever seen. I refer everyone I know to him. He is simply put one of the most intuitive practioners I have and he takes great care of me!
