Each Visit is Fantastic!

Each of my 3 visits so far have been five star. As a Registered Nurse I know excellent care and a well-run practice when I see it and this office is a prime example. Dr. Tomko is extremely knowledgeable, professional and has an excellent bedside manner that makes the patient feel both safe and will get the best possible outcome that their body and situation will allow. Mabel was the same. Upbeat, professional and made learning the exercise regime both fun and informative. all of the staff from the front door to the treatment area are pleasant and you truly feel that they enjoy working in the practice. Thank you so much for all you do.

Doctors That Listen

So far, I am very happy with my experience and as I move forward I am beginning to see progress. I feel I can trust Dr. Thomo…I am impressed with his knowledge, warm personality and patience. This is certainly not the kind of practice of years past…I appreciate all the “new toys”. My Dr. listens to me…remembers what I tell him and a good reparte. I hope to continue getting more mobility.

Staff Were Fantastic

The staff and Dr. Mahoney were fantastic. Very friendly and professional. Dr. Mahoney listened to what I said. And he explained everything so I could understand it. I felt very relaxed and confident that Dr. Mahoney will help me. I will recommend Dr. Mahoney to anyone who needs a chiropractor.

Saved My Vacation!

Saved my vacation ! I came in hardly able to walk after the long drive in and felt instant relief after the first appt with Dr. Sod. Professional, knowledgeable and prompt.

Kind and Friendly Team

While on vacation in Rehoboth Beach, I had a flare-up of an existing condition. First off, I was surprised that could get an appointment that same afternoon, and a follow-up the next morning. Kenda at reception was friendly and helpful as well. With the adjustments and a list of exercises that I could do to eliminate any discomfort, Dr. Ryan Sod allowed me to enjoy the rest of my vacation. Also, thanks to Tyra for the TENS therapy.

I Feel so Improved

Dr. Garcia and all the clerks at the front desk were very pleasant and helpful. Her assistants in the treatment area were very kind. I was very skeptical in the beginning as I had had no experience with chiropractic services. However Dr. Garcia with her skills, greatly improved my problem.

Three Treatments Later and I’m Better!

After just three acupuncture treatments the pain in my lower back is gone. I had been suffering for many, many months with no relief in sight. I am thoroughly pleased!
- Lynn B.

Feeling Better Already

I was able to be seen quickly when my back flared up . It had been many years since I relocated to Delaware and had the need to seek Chiropractic care. I had some concerns that a new provider would not be as caring as my former Dr. The care, service and concern for my heath that I received today was outstanding . I’m feeling better already and know I can count on 1st State Heath and Wellness to get me back to full strength soon.

Very Impressed

I was so impressed with this practice. From the moment I walked in, up and until I met Dr. Mike who was amazing explaining what he would do for me under his care. The front desk ladies were so kind and considerate. I look forward to continuing my wellness journey with First Health and encourage the same to others seeking this path of medicine.

They Treat You Like Family

Dr Garcia and the staff at First State Health & Wellness are amazing. They treat you like family starting with your first visit. I was a little apprehensive about going to a chiropractor, now I wish I would have made an appointment sooner. I feel so relaxed when I leave, I would highly recommend them.

Top Notch!

I relocated to the Bethany Beach area a year and a half ago and needed to find a new chiropractor to continue to be treated for a pre-existing condition. After my first visit at First State Health & Wellness I began feeling relief from pain I had been carrying with me for the past year. From my initial phone call, I felt like a member of the family. Jamie and Mabel are very professional and very comforting. I was nervous about finding a new chiropractor, and they answered every question I had about the process of getting connected to a new doctor with grace and kindness. They were able to get me in to see Dr. Tomko in less than a week. Dr. Tomko is very kind, patient and very knowledgeable. He listens attentively and does not make me feel like he is rushing me just to get to the next patient. He honestly makes me feel like I am his only appointment of the day. It is important to him that I am pain free and continue to remain that way. He is easy to talk to. He offers suggestions on how I can continue to remain pain free with little things I can do at home to support what he does in the office. If you want an overall wellness experience, I would recommend First State Health & Wellness. They are top notch!

Haven’t Felt This Good in a Long Time

Very professional, knowledgeable and skillful. You felt relaxed, safe and heard. I have not felt this good and pain free in a long time. So very glad I made that first appointment.

- William M.

Very Impressed

I am a returning patient – have not had to visit since 2017 – am very impressed with the measures taken to keep patients safe during COVID-19, and love the updated look of the office. Of course, Dr. Mahoney is always great!

- Susan O.

Friendly, Patient, & Knowledgeable

I would recommend Dr. Tiffany Garcia and staff at First State Health & Wellness to all of my friends and family. They are very friendly, patient and knowledgeable.

- Ericka T.

Dr. Garcia is Amazing

Dr. Garcia is amazing. My daughter has been raving about her for over a year now. The day I woke up with a stiff neck she said “call Dr. Garcia, she’s the BEST.” Her staff is so friendly and helpful. They work together like a well-oiled machine. So far my experience has been outstanding and I will highly recommend Dr. Garcia

- Joanne L.

Great Improvement

I had fallen twice and have osteoarthritis, sciatica, neck and back pain. I received gentle nerve tapping from neck, shoulders, upper back, middle back, lower back and sciatica-this procedure is very gentle but very effective. Every visit I felt better and better with great improvement. The staff is efficient with giving a reminder call before your appointments. The therapist explains what she’s doing in detail and what I’m to expect in regard to my personal situation. I have improved greatly. I thank them for their service!

- A Grateful Patient
