D.O.T. PHYSICAL EXAMS
The number of patients seeking natural health care for primary care is rapidly growing because of a growing perception that conventional medicine is a side effect ridden, over-commercialized, one-size-fits-all approach to treating chronic disease. Patients deserve an individualistic approach from a practitioner who practices conservatively, is well informed and serves as a health educator.
At Augusta Chiropractic Health Center, we treat our patients as we would like to be treated ourselves
We would like to be seen promptly, we would like to be respected, we would like to have everything explained to us in detail, and we would want to feel comfortable in the office. We strive for treating our clients like our own family.
We spend time with you and get to know you
In today’s healthcare landscape, many patients do not receive adequate care. One-on-one time with doctors is dwindling, and medication prescriptions are rising. This healthcare model is not sustainable. At Augusta Chiropractic Health Center, we believe that your doctor should spend time with you, get to know your history and health goals, and should be there to help guide you along your journey to health.
Instead of prescribing drugs to cover of symptoms, Augusta Chiropractic Health Center utilizes cutting edge diagnostic testing, nutritional analysis, and modern chiropractic care to customize treatment plans for the patient to address the root problem, not merely alleviate the symptom. The end result: patients are empowered, healthier, and equipped to take care of themselves after they leave.

Doctors of chiropractic medicine aren’t just interested in spinal health, they’re trained to view the body as a whole structure with every joint, muscle, tendon, and bone working in unison to keep your body on the move. The feet are the foundation of your body, so ensuring they stay healthy and problem-free benefits your entire body. Functional orthotics are prescription “shoe inserts”. They’re custom-made to easily slide into your shoe and support the unique shape of your feet. They replace the generic insole included with shoes and are designed to align your spine, hips, and neck, as well as secure Chiropractic adjustments beyond the adjusting table.

Functional Medicine is a systematic approach to healthcare that incorporates several new ideas into the treatment of disease and the restoration of health and vitality. Functional Medicine looks for the "why" and not only the "what". The present model of healthcare looks for symptoms and then correlates those symptoms into a group and calls it a "disease". It then treats the symptoms or more precisely the "disease". Functional Medicine looks further than that. It looks for the "why". In other words, why do these symptoms arise? What is the cause of these symptoms and then treats the cause thus eliminating the reason those symptoms arose in the first place.

Years of Experience
Dr. Markus McCormac, DC, NRCME
Certified Medical Examiner
I am a patient of Dr. Markus McCormac & I am extemely impressed with his bedside manner, knowledge & the quality of patient care he provides. Over the last 5 years or so I've seen 6 doctors and 3 specialists for GI problems. Ive have multiple scans, tests, surgical procedures including biopsies & doctors have never been able to come to a conculsion. Recently I started seeing Dr. Markus McCormac. He performed a very thorough new patient exam, he request specific blood tests and we went through my family history. Within a couple weeks we started treatment & I can honestly say I have not felt this good in sooo long! He takes his time with me and answers every and all questions I have in a way that I understand. I trust him as a doctor & love that he truly cares. I highly recommend Dr. Markus McCormac to anyone & everyone.
Having had a prior bad experience with chiropractic work in the past, I have stayed away from it for many years, and just dealt with the pain. I've experienced chronic issues for years and Dr's Merv and Markus McCormac have helped me beyond belief. From the front desk to the actual therapy everyone has been kind, professional, and truly care about your recovery and well being. I truly can't say thank you enough for all they have done already. They have found crucial details that many visits to other doctors and practices never did. Things that should have been fairly obvious, but they explained to me and my untrained eye in a way that I could easily see how jacked up I truly was. I am very thankful they have found the issues and put me on a road to rehab. It's frustrating being told for years you're just getting old, or they can't see anything wrong, and you question yourself; is everyone just dealing with this kind of pain? Nope! You just have to find a provider who cares, and with this office, I have! Thank you all, sincerely!
I was about ready to give up. I was so tired of going to doctor after doctor. Each doctor throw thyroid meds at me and tell me I needed to get more sleep and that my foot pain was unexplainable without even touching my feet or looking at me. I saw so many different types of doctors with nothing even touching the pain and only adding to bills. I was prepared to live exhausted and change my life according to my foot pain. My older sister was told about Dr. McCormac working wonders for a friend so I decided to give it one last try. Not only did he do a full body exam and full foot exam he had a good idea what we were dealing with my FIRST exam! I was a little nervous trying to not get my hopes up but followed his instructions as well as I could with a cleansing diet, a vitamin protocol and inserts. After approx 6 months my inflammation levels have gone down, my feet are on the mend, my gut is getting cleared up and I feel like a new person and we aren't even done yet!!! I would recommend anyone see this doctor, you won't regret it!! The staff is also very friendly and helpful making the experience that much more perfect!!!
