Dr. Phil Altieri has been seeing patients clinically for over 20 years and in private practice for the past 19 years. Prior to receiving his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in 1998, Dr. Altieri was a certified massage therapist since 1990 and worked in various clinical and private practice settings. The knowledge and experience he gained as a certified massage therapist in soft tissue techniques and manipulation is still utilized and incorporated in his current practice, complementing the chiropractic treatment. Upon licensure, Dr. Altieri started out in a multi-disciplinary medical practice consisting of medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, podiatrist, dentists, massage therapists, an acupuncturist and nutritionist. After gaining much experience and a wealth of knowledge, Dr. Altieri opened his own private chiropractic practice to better personalize and cater his services for personal patient wellness.
Dr. Altieri incorporates many procedures and therapies into his practice depending on the patient’s condition or needs. Some the various gentle procedures performed include:
~ Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy (CMT) – adjustments of osseous joints and soft tissue structures central and peripheral to the spine including extremities such as the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, foot and temporomandibular joints (TMJ).
~ Pain management treatment/protocols.
~ Diagnosis and interpretation of X-rays, MRI, CT, EMG’s, NCV’s, lab work and blood tests.
~ Nutritional and dietary recommendations as well as Nutraceuticals (vitamins, supplements).
~ Modality applications such as electro-muscular stimulation, ultrasound, hot/cryo therapy, LLL (low level laser, “Cold Laser”).
~ Kinesiology Taping– the use of specialized flexible and stretchable tape to promote healing, improve function, enhance rehabilitation, provides stabilization, facilitates functional improvement of muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons and sport injuries.
~ Exercise/Physical Therapy using the latest techniques including therabands, fitness balls, balance boards and various other equipment to rehabilitate injuries, post-op surgeries, strengthening or stretching of muscles and improving/correcting postural imbalances as well as balance and equilibrium.

Dr. Altieri is patient, empathetic, and of course, knowledgeable. He takes his time with each patient and endeavors to restore the whole body to health: physically, mentally, emotionally. My husband and I are more than pleased with his approach and enjoy our visits. His wife, Christina, is wonderful at managing the insurance end of the business. We LOVE Dr. Phil!!
Dr. Phil is a truly dedicated professional. I can't count the number of times he has gone above and beyond what is required of him to take care of me. My neck is in bad shape and last year I went on a cruise for 8 days. I spent the last 2 days in miserable pain lying in bed. I contacted his office on a Saturday from Miami airport leaving a message telling him what was going on. He got back to me and offered to come in on Sunday to treat my pain. He's a keeper!
Dr. Phil has become my go-to for just about any medical problem I have. He is honest, kind and caring. I've always had doctors who don't listen to me and then somehow decide what's wrong. Dr. Phil always asks me how I'm feeling, actually listens to what's hurting and then examines it. He's helped me so much over the past few months. I can't thank him enough!
I have been a patient of Dr. Altieri for nearly 15 years. I have considerable back and neck issues. He is by far the best chiropractor that I have ever been a patient of. Dr. Phil is a great listener and very caring. I highly recommend him to family and friends.
I have been going to Dr. Phil for over 3 years. He helped me through my pregnancy when I injured my hip at only 10 weeks, and I continue to see him for weekly for care. He has improved my well-being tremendously.
By far the most thorough and complete chiropractor in the area. Dr Altieri treats with specific and detailed corrections and manipulations. He is a complete practitioner and overall genuine person taking the time to know each patient on a personal level
Dr. Phil is the most reliable chiropractor around. He has helped with my on going shoulder,foot,hip,and back pains from my activities I'm in involved with. He makes you feel welcomed and can fit you in at any anytime.
I have known Phil for over 20 years. He has been the Doctor who has treated every member of my family. We would not dream of going anywhere else. He keeps up with all the latest treatments and is ever expanding his knowledge. Highly recommend to anyone needing chiropractic!
