Dr. Meet Patel

Dr Patel believes in combining both ” Chiropractic” and ” Medical” to help you live a longer healthier life that is pain free. The initial visit consists of him taking digital x-rays, if necessary, to then go over the findings with you to explain your pain and find a way to break free from the pain.

Dr Patel graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport IA. He is the clinic director of Monahan Chiropractic. Aside spinal adjustments, Dr Patel also has studied and educated others extensively on all ” 7 Extremities” ( TMJ, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Hips, Knees, and Ankles) “ There are *206 bones* in your body and *33 bones* in your spine, which leaves *173 reasons* why just one small misalignment of one of the joints in the extremities can lead to myriad of health problems and areas of discomfort that will only increase if they go untreated”.

Gretchen Territo
Dr. Patel is a miracle-worker! I went in with shoulder pain and walked out feeling better than I have in years! In just one adjustment, all my chronic low-level tension disappeared. It’s taken two visits to work out the shoulder knot and I have one more visit for good measure. I feel like Dr. Patel really listens and his goal is towards getting me feeling well, rather than keeping me coming back. This is the second instance where Dr. Patel has worked his magic, and I’m so grateful!

I don't even know where to begin. Dr. Patel and his staff are so absolutely amazing. My 3 month old daughter (born via cesarean) had been having problems sleeping. Up every single hour, gorging on food, and still would not sleep longer than 45 minutes at a time. When she was awake, she'd have small windows of happiness followed by long hours filled with anger and stress. She would stay up sometimes 4 to 7 hours just distraught. We tried anticolic, soothing techniques, massage, white noise, sleeping on me was the only time we would get a moment of rest, as as any mother knows, you yourself do not get rest when an infant is sleeping on you.We visited Dr Patel and he was so gentle with Eloise. She was grinning at him the entire time. He adjusted her neck and her back, and within 10 minutes we were on our way. SHE FELL ASLEEP IN THE CAR! and slept for 2 hours while I shopped and ran errands, not even stirring when I moved her from the car both times. We went for 2 more followup appointments and it only got better from there!! she started sleeping longer stretches at night, and took naps multiple times a day that lasted for well over an hour and sometimes almost meeting 3!we are officially 3 weeks post treatment and Eloise is sleeping like an absolute champion! last night was her FIRST night fully in her crib (not using a swing or rocking to sleep) and only woke up to feed twice! I've seen her excel in daytime activities and tummy time, as well as a complete 180 in her attitude during wake windows. Dr Patel and staff, yall saved this mama!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts 💕
Laura Grace
I’m just going to state the facts .I was in tremendous pain in my neck, where I could not move it in any direction without discomfort. I reluctantly went to see the Dr. Not truly believing in it to be a cure. 3 visits later I am without pain and moving my neck freely.Thank you! No more tears

Lori Pellicer
OMG!!!! Dr.Patel has changed my Life!!! If it weren’t for him and his awesome staff I would not be walking around without pain! I never thought that was even possible for me. I thought I was stuck with this pain for the rest of my life but once he started working with me I could tell right away that he really cares about ME!!I work outside all of the time and I often hurt myself doing things that I think this little body can do but really shouldn’t be doing and he gets me back out there!! He gets it!! Really isn’t that what we all want in life? To be able to keep doing the things that we love?Getting to the core of the problem was an adventure to say the least but he was up for the challenge. I liked that!!Although I was his Problem Child !!( his words not mine lol) he was very patient and in doing so it made me way calmer so that he could do his job. Smart Man!!He explained things to me before and after my adjustments. I never left there not knowing what went on or what to expect.I am sooo thankful that Dr. Patel showed up in my life!! 🙏

Vita Callari
I moved here and procrastinated in getting a chiropractor for years ( hard to find a great one). I started having headaches daily and my neck really was in pain. I had my first adjustment today … Amazing experience. I left there so much better. So happy I found this chiropractor. Ohh and when you walk in it feels and smells like a spa . The front desk is pleasant and professional and makes sure the space is comfortable. Love love love the candles in the office .

Sebastian Vega
The VA recommended me to this clinic and I have had an amazing experience. My doctor works with me through all of my issues and has educated me on everything. I have blasted him with questions and always get an answer. I can say that the adjustments he has done with me have eased up a lot of my physical issues I had obtained in service. I appreciate Dr. Christopher Colaluca for all the work he has done with me.

Great staff and Dr. Patel is the best. Every time I leave I feel like I am 20 years old again.
Best chiropractor ever. Also they have space technology massage chairs. They also have human massage if you prefer a carbon lifeform over a robot.
Lauren Keith
Comedy, charm, and chiropractic. I’ve tried several chiropractor’s around town and Dr. Patel is the best by far. His team AKA Annette is also wonderful and ever accommodating to my last minute pains and needs—and the pains I push off until I cannot turn my neck. Holly, the massage therapist, is also great and very skilled at personalizing what you need.
karen jackson
I had a horrendous car accident last year that messed up my back and neck, and Dr. Patel has been nothing short of a miracle worker. I feel fantastic, the pain is gone, and I can even mow my lawn with a push mower! Thanks Monahan Chiropractic!

I love this place! I’ve been seeing Dr. Patel for about 3 years now and the care I receive at his office is always outstanding. He is very skilled, and his staff is always efficient, knowledgeable and professional.The office hours are also very convenient and it’s easy to get an appointment at the time you need it. Dr. Patel listens to your every word/complaint and then does all he can to relieve your pain.

David Ritchie
This is Dave from Water Solutions. When I went in last week I could hardly walk. Apparently my lower back messed up my knee. Dr. Patel straightened out both. Last night was the first night that I was able to get any sleep in weeks, literally. I would stay up all night with a massage type vibrator on my knee and back keeping ice on it constantly to help relieve the pain. First time in many weeks that I was able to get five hours of straight sleep. Thank you
Tim Pompos
I have been going to Dr. Patel for the past couple of years for my back/neck aches and pains. He’s been very helpful relieving them. I see him occasionally for minor adjustments.

Thank you Dr Haley for getting me started again!
