Written Testimonials

 Here's what our patients have to say about us!

I have been suffering from tendonitis for over 8 years. 
I have been seeing Allison for acupuncture for about 10 weeks. This is my first experience with this type of therapy. I cannot believe how my pain has been reduced. In less than 2 months I was able to perform activities WITHOUT pain that I have not been able to do for over 8 years.
Allie is very professional and extremely talented and knowledgeable. She has, and is, addressing all my issues with excellent results. I highly recommend seeing Allie if you are suffering from pain.

I have been seeing Allie for acupuncture. This is my first experience with this type of therapy. She is professional and a wonderful listener. She had addressed all my concerns and I am having excellent outcomes. Highly recommend.
-PB


Allie is absolutely wonderful! She is educated and professional. I highly recommend Goshorn Acupuncture!
-BC


I have been seeing Allie for a rotator cuff injury I have been living with for the past 7 years. After just a few treatments, I noticed a large reduction in pain, and increased range of motion. I cannot believe what a difference acupuncture with Allie has made in my day to day life. I have recommended many of my friends to her.
-MF


I initially began seeing Allie for headaches that have plagued me for years. I was not sure what to expect, as this was my first time having acupuncture. What I appreciated most was that Allie explained everything that she was doing during the treatment. She also answered all of the questions that I had and what I should expect following the treatments. I have been headache free for about a month now! Even better, I have noticed a huge difference in my stress, energy, and sleep. I am now sleeping through the night, which is very new for me. I highly recommend Goshorn Acupuncture to anyone interested in trying a more natural approach to health.

I have been a patient of Dr. Goshorn's for many years due to a back injury and have consistently been helped by his treatments.  Both my pain level and mobility benefit from his care:)  But this year he did me a very special service by helping me with a broken nose!  My internist was away and while at a regular appointment with Dr. Chuck he noticed my nose injury was worse than I thought.  He recognized it as broken immediately and determined it was out of alignment and not yet stabilized.  Thanks to his referral to a surgeon I was able to be seen quickly and have the surgery needed to repair my nose.  It has healed well, and I am very grateful to Dr. Chuck for his expertise and the great level of personal care he provides.  He is a wonderful healer who truly treats the whole person!  -

I am writing to commend the work of the doctors at Goshorn Chiropractic and Wellness.  I was a patient of Dr. Chuck's  for many years due to a history of scoliosis and repetitive stress injuries.  Most note-worthy is the many times he treated me on the off-hours -  holidays and weekends,  when the pain from thoracic subluxation was unbearable for me.  I am so grateful that this pain was instantly alleviated by an adjustment and that I was not made to wait for an appointment during regular office hours.  This special attention is a testimony to his dedication to my well-being  and his profession.  

This year, I began treatment for scar tissue with Dr Andrew, as Dr Chuck does not do this type of modality.  For decades,  the range of motion in my left shoulder was greatly decreased which prevented me from playing golf with my husband and doing  many other vigorous activities which I really do enjoy.  This treatment has been so successful! I no longer feel like my neck is caught in a vise grip around it and it takes no effort for me to stand up straight back on my heels for the first time in years.  I look forward to my yard clean-up at this time of year, no longer worried that raking, bagging, and bending within reason are going to cause acute pain again. 


I have recommended Goshorn Chiropractic and Wellness to friends and acquaintances over the years.  I hope this writing this can reach a broader audience of people who could reap the benefits of healing that I have enjoyed at the hands of these talented practitioners.

Thank you,
Karen B.


I had never been to a Chiropractic office, but my doctor said it was time to see one. I debated because I did not want to go but the pain was so bad I had no choice.  I called Goshorn Chiropractic and received an appointment within days.  I met Dr. Goshorn and he ordered X-rays, and my treatment began.  I was very surprised at what the X-rays showed, and quite concerned about how I was ever going to walk again without pain again. Dr. Goshorn explained how he was going to treat me and also gave me the courage to go forward, the doctor could see how worried I was.  After about 3 visits I was able to walk with less pain and within 3 weeks I was pain free.  Then the unthinkable happened and I fell on black ice.  Need I say more? My regular visit was 2 days away, I went to the appointment explained what happened and Dr. Goshorn started working on that issue also.  I am almost back to being pain free and have Dr. Goshorn to thank for putting me back together again.  All I can say is thank you, thank you!

I want to let the Goshorn’s know how thankful I am for them. I have had an Achilles tendonitis in both my ankles for 3 years. I have gone through two rounds of physical therapy and twelve cortisone shots. I was told that I needed to have surgery to fix my ankles and it would require 6 months of recovery for each ankle. A doctor even suggested that I change professions. I am a very energetic person and cannot sit still for long. The thought of being down that long would drive me crazy.

A friend of mine suggested that I see Dr. Goshorn. The first time I met with him he was 99% sure he could help me. I ordered orthotics for my shoes and continued doing the exercises Dr. Goshorn suggested. My ankles became less painful and the swelling started going down. Dr. Goshorn is also treating me for migraines. I have not had one since he has been treating me.

I learned about a  program Barb Goshorn offers. The program is called Shape ReClaimed. It helps increase your metabolism and reduces inflammation. While on the Shape program I have lost 20 pounds. The swelling in my Achilles is completely gone. Barb continually monitors my urine to make sure I am handling all the fat I am burning. I feel better knowing that someone is making sure my health is maintained.

The other day I told my husband that I was very thankful for the Goshorn’s. It is the first time in 3 years that I am totally pain free in my ankles. Because of the Goshorn’s, I can continue being active. The Goshorn’s are amazing people and I feel honored to be treated by them.

My Experience at Goshorn Wellness Center has been:

As a believer in the power of a proactive & preventative wellness model for optimal health care to the maximum extent possible & practicable, I've received consistent chiropractic care since graduating from the University of Rochester in 1978: 20 years in Washington, DC Metro area and approaching 15 years here, in Rochester, New York.

Of the many skilled chiropractors who have adjusted & treated me through the decades, Dr. Charles Goshorn & Dr. Andrew Lazzaro rise to  the top of the pyramid. These two brilliant men possess a unique blend of:

1. knowledge of anatomy & physiology

2. experience treating a broad range of human dis-eases & dis-orders

3. discretion & keen wisdom in their approaches & practices

4. genuine passion for preventing & curing illness

5.  empathy & compassion for those of us burdened by chronic pain & suffering

6. inspirational personalities which instill faith & hope, possibility & positivity in our bodies' innate potentials to heal and most importantly:

G-d given gifts of healing, which facilitates & stimulate the miraculous inner potentials & processes within us all.

The wonderful services provided by Goshorn Chiropractic are bundled together, wrapped tightly & neatly by a highly competent & caring administrative support team.

I came to Dr. Goshorn after damaging my hamstring in a race in May. I tried rest, P.T., and even sports massage. I had never been to a chiropractor and Dr. Goshorn was recommended to me by a friend. I was at a point where I needed relief from the chronic pain and also was very discouraged with my lack of progress. After my first appointment I felt definite improvement and was very encouraged that I was making progress. I continued over several weeks and can thankfully say that I am almost 100% improved. The staff is very knowledgeable and professional in the areas of treatment and overall healthy living and well being. I would definitely recommend them!!


I have had a great experience with the Goshorn Chiropractic practice, and have trusted them with my teenager's care as well. The support staff is very welcoming and professional, and the doctors and staff frequently offer fun patient appreciation days.

I have always received wonderful care and always greeted with a smile! Chiropractic care helped me with severe back and an inability to sit. Now with regular visits my pain is gone and I can sit without a problem. Dr.Chuck helped me tremendously!

Doctor Lazzaro has saved me trips to the hospital and most likely surgery for back, knee, neck issues, but the thing I am most indebted to him for is that he instantly stopped the unbelievable pain I was in when I dislocated a rib. Dr. Lazzaro has made me a firm believer in Chiropractic Medicine and his professional capabilities. I even went water skiing the weekend of my 40th high school reunion, knowing that the good doc had my back. Dr. Lazzaro will always be the first call I make for any medical issue I have.

Before I met Dr. Andrew, I had trouble picking up my 2 year old son. Since then, I have had no trouble keeping up with him or his more active brother. Andrew R.


I have been having Massage at Goshorn for a few years. I have always enjoyed my experience and the professionalism of all the staff. Recently I have been in a lot of pain from a gym related injury. For over a month I have tried everything I could think of to relieve my pain. I have never seen a chiropractor before and was skeptical about the treatment. As a last resort I called Goshorn. They got me in promptly with Dr. Andrew. After answering a few questions and having a scan with some pretty state of the art equipment I met Dr. Andrew. His consultation was amazing. He explained that he would diagnose my problem and even tell me if it was something that I should seek different medical treatment for than what a chiropractor can offer. He explained what he would recommend for treatment and even how many visits as well as the cost before proceeding. We even shook hands on it! It turned out that he was very familiar with my issue and I proceeded with my treatment. He was confident and gentle and explained everything he was doing. I am amazed at how much better I feel. Its literally 100% better after just one visit. I will still be returning for my follow up appointments to insure I do not re-injure myself. Thanks Goshorn Chiropractic and Dr Andrew!

I have been more than pleased with ALL of the services provided to myself and my family at Goshorn Chiropractic. They are a Wellness Center and really target the WHOLE healthy being. Services that I have been more than satisfied with include: allergy elimination (for my son and myself), massage, chiropractic care, metabolic detox & some nutritional information graciously given. The office and entire staff are amazing. Thank you everyone :)

Dr. Andrew Lazzaro is extremely knowledgeable about the function of the body. How we move and how we tend to move wrong which then puts us into pain! Some well done corrections to my neck and spine resulted in my back no longer hurting (it had lingered for weeks before I finally decided to go see him). Should have gone right out of the gate. Thanks Andrew! (btw your staff always brings a smile to my face when I talk to them, always upbeat and always positive!)

In 2005, my senior year of high school, I was diagnosed with a herniated disk in my lower back. I had steroid shots, did physical therapy for a year, and although the pain would go away, it was always temporary. For the next four years my back and leg hurt daily. It was always sore when I woke up, hurt after sitting or standing for long periods of time, and really limited the activities I could do. I started going to Dr. Goshorn in January 2010, and now, just over three months later, I can say that I am virtually pain free. I can sit for hours or stand up at concerts, I can walk and run with my dog, and I don't have to worry about how sore my back will be the next day. I still cannot believe the change my body has gone through since January and am so happy to recommend Dr. Goshorn to anyone considering seeing a chiropractor. He is professional, friendly, and caring, and shows interest in the progress of his patients. I am thankful every day that I can get through without pain and truly feel that he is the reason my back doesn't ache every day anymore. Thank you so much!!

Dr. Chuck,

Thank you for your healing hands! I have been diagnosed with a degenerative cervical vertebral disc which had been pressing on a nerve and the muscles in my left shoulder and upper  left arm  were tight causing a constant , debilitating pain and discomfort for many weeks. Consequently, I was fatigued and unable to exercise and effectively do chores in my busy, physical daily routines.  I had limited range of motion in my neck and left arm and experienced a creaking, low vibrating grinding sensation at the base of my skull. But now, I am completely pain free and the flexibility in my vertebra and neck has greatly improved. I feel energized again.


Dr. Chuck is astute diagnostician, knowledgeable, professional, thorough, personable and caring.

Thank you again, Dr. Chuck!

Dr. Goshorn,

I have been experiencing neck problems since childhood. About seven months ago, I was experiencing another bout of neck pain, but this was by far the worst neck pain I ever had.

My co-worker suggested I see a chiropractor and referred me to Dr. Goshorn. I was hesitant, but was desperate for help. My experience was positive and with regular adjustments, my neck is in great shape.
Thank you, Dr. Goshorn!


Goshorn Chiropractic has facilitated a wonderful change in my life. They have shown me how to live a happier, healthier and longer life. I've lost weight, regained amazing energy and feel like I'm in my 20's instead of my 50's! I can't thank them enough!

With Goshorn Chiropractic you get more than just an office visit, you get a complete program. You start with adjustments in the office but the rest of the program is your "homework": stretches and exercises. As long as you stick to the program, success is assured.

A couple of years ago my doctor suggested I see a chiropractor for a nagging pain in my side that couldn't be diagnosed (for 3 years). I had a cat scan and blood work to no avail. The pain had gotten so bad I couldn't even walk from my car into Wegman's without stopping to catch my breath. I was at my wits end when I made an appointment with Dr. Chuck! The first session he did a scan and could instantly tell that something was going on. It was such a relief that someone could validate my pain!! Within a couple of visits my pain and breathing returned to normal!! What a relief! I kept going to Dr. Chuck for various other problems I had chalked up to getting older. He made me see that I didn't have to put up with the aches and pains. I am hooked! Earlier this year I did the natural allergy elimination also. It was a godsend! I have resolved a lot of my outdoor allergies and learned a lot about my body. It is amazing how tuned to my body I am now. Goshorn Chiropractic is a total wellness clinic. From the friendly staff to Dr. Chuck, Dr. Andrew and Barb everyone treats you like family. Earlier this year I did the Heart Walk with everyone from Goshorn Chiropractic. I had a blast and I look forward to next years walk. Thanks for giving me my life back Dr. Chuck!

Dear Barbara,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful experience I had working with you and your staff to drop almost 15% of my weight and reach my goals ahead of schedule.  I have been working out for years and have never really been able to lose weight or at least enough to make a difference.  By coming to you and learning about good, the reactions our body has to it and then modifying my behavior based on your suggestions are diet I was able to achieve in 8 weeks what I haven’t been able to do in years.  The other important point is I travel 3 days a week for my job and I used to use that excuse, but with your program that excuse is gone and I lost several inches in my hips and belly (requiring several new clothes – great problem to have) and a bunch of weight.  The best part about it I learned so much in the program that I am confident I will not put the weight back on and I really didn’t have to do anything crazy like starving myself or cleanses or any other fad.  I would say to anyone who has trouble losing weight or wants to lose it in a controlled and sensible way they absolutely need to work with you.

My results were amazing and I know it because I have had plenty of people tell me, and most importantly I feel it both physically and mentally.  I also have the blood work and new low blood pressure to prove it!!!

Thank you so much,

James S.


I had a trampoline injury that had been released using chiropractic care
by Dr. Goshorn. This began to cause a lot of pain and swelling as my
body readjusted to normal. Allison not only alleviated the pain but
moved the swelling out of the inflamed areas which ultimately
disappeared. In addition, I had some intestinal trouble and stress from
the extended pain. Allison eliminated both using "ear seeds." Allison's
work is definitely amazing!

I have far less pain now and he taught me some stretches for when it does bother me. I usually have my 7 year old son with me and Dr. Hill is great at interacting with him and explaining how things work. The front desk staff is very friendly and welcoming."
