" A whole new level of chiropractics! Dr. Fortini is at the top of his field and it shows in his work. Since my first visit about two months ago, the curvature of my spine has corrected over 10 degrees (it's visible on an x-ray!), I've cut my anti-anxiety meds in half and completely ceased my sleeping medication, my posture has improved, and my pain levels have dropped dramatically. It is absolutely astonishing. Dr. Fortini provides an excellent education on the many crucial functions of the spine, as well as nutrition and lifestyle changes I can make to improve my overall health. He's a diamond in the rough, for sure, and his team members are an absolute joy. I look forward to this coming year of new life in 2016."

"Prior to coming to this place I experienced chronic back pain and muscle spasms due to a server accident a couple years back. Overall, I am a very healthy, active, balanced person and sought to heal the areas that were out of balance. I am very happy I stumbled into this chiropractor. All the people here are super friendly, always smiling, and helpful. The adjustments serve the body well. Within my time span here I went from my initial 10 degrees angle (this is the angle that the neck needs to be to allow maximum amount of flow to the rest of the body through the spinal cord) to 17 degrees to now 21 degrees. I need to be at 33 degrees. I'm pleased to see the progress and I can feel a TREMENDOUS difference in my back and posture. Keep up the good work!"

-Chantae Shor


"I enjoy going to Merrimon Family Chiropractic. The staff is friendly and professional and work together like a family. When I started going to see them I did not realize how bad I had been feeling until I started feeling better. I have dealt with shoulder and neck pain for so long that I just don't remember not having it. Now I am moving much more easily and freely and with no pain! Thanks to the wonderful staff and doctor's at Merrimon Family Chiropractic I continue to feel better every day."

-Ramona Williams


"Great staff here- all are very friendly and personable! They don't just treat patients, they educate them....... Have been getting treatments for app. 6 weeks, and most of my neck and shoulder pain are gone- a great relief.

I would definitely recommend this office to anyone with pain, or someone just wanting to feel better overall. "

-Chip Smith


"Every since I started going to merrimon family chiropractor. I have had no headache. My energy levels are up and I can move more freely."

-Joshua Ellison


"I am loving my work with Dr. Ben and Dr. Fortini!! And the staff are SO warm and welcoming.I especially value the education component of the work. AND I immediately feel my body responding to each adjustment.

My friend Nannette loves the work too but she doesn't have a computer. She is delighted we are on this healing journey and is full of praise for the docs and staff. "

-Julie Parker


"Dr. Fortini and his staff initially began treating me following a car accident several years ago and I have continued to see them for monthly maintenance adjustments. They have proven to have such a positive impact on how I feel, move, and think - it has truly changed my life - no more horrible shoulder, lower back, neck, or headaches! My overall health is much improved - I have fewer colds and allergy problems! I have better posture! I sleep better!
My 87 year-old mother-in-law was about to have back surgery for sciatica issues. My husband, also a regular patient at Merrimon Family Chiropractic, convinced her to try chiropractic treatment first and she is now pain free! No surgery! "

-Kathryn Barnwell


"The chiropractors at Merrimon Family Chiropractic are pros! We drove across the country to Asheville, and needless to say, they helped us lift the 'brain fog' and our bodies get back to normal from the travel. We've continued our care with them, which keeps our minds clear and focused and bodies working properly. Cannot say enough good things about this team of experts!! If you truly want to attain better health, chiropractic is the absolute BEST thing that you can do for yourself & family. My son started getting better grades in school, was happier all of the time, and overall healthier due to chiropractic methods. The friendly, knowledgeable staff is a plus as well, they make everything simple, and are always available when needed!"

-Lauren Besse


"The staff are always friendly and helpful. It's just like visiting family. Due to the care I have been given I no longer have to walk with a cane all the time. Regular visits keep me going and walking as well as my wife. I didn't use to be a believer but now I am. Why else would I drive 50 miles round trip 2x per month for treatment if it didn't work?"

-Jeffery Ledford


"I started coming to Merrimon Family Chiropractic after a car acident which resulted in some neck and back pain. After a few appointments, I was feeling better in ways I didn't know. It did more than help my back and neck, it gave me more energy and just made me feel better in general. Nobody wants to be in a car accident, but I feel grateful that things happened in the way they did, allowing me to receive some much needed chiropractic care."

-Drew Padgett


"I have been a long standing patient of Merrimon Chiropractic for many, many years. I have always been treated with great care, patience and thoroughness. The staff is always friendly, caring, and helpful. The doctors are thorough and take the time to address all of my concerns, whether minor or huge. They go the extra mile to provide a standard of excellence in wellness. I whole-heartedly recommend any of the doctors at Merrimon Chiropractic and know that you will be well taken care of through education on how the body functions. Chiropractic...it makes sense!"

-Nalda Rodriguez


"As a new resident to Asheville, I was concerned about finding health care providers who would best meet my needs. I hit the jackpot when my primary care physician referred me to Merrimon Family Chiropractic. Everything about my treatment has exceeded my expectations. The office staff has made me feel at home with their care and efficiency. Dr. Ben in just a few months of treatments, helped to rid me completely of severe headaches. I look forward to my chiropractic appointments. I feel so much better and am experiencing improved energy and joy in my life. I recommend this practice with my highest regard."

-Norma Richard


"Very pleased to know such good and caring doctors. After treatment, I certainly hope I will be able to walk in the park for much longer time than before, because I see positive results already!"

-Larisa Kushnir


"I never thought about going to a chiropractor until I was advised by a friend. Since then I have gotten the best sleep of my life, as well as my body feeling better everywhere. I will never neglect my back again! Thank you, Merrimon Chiropractic."

-Gage Munoz


"I came into the office for lower back pain, but I've felt relief in several other areas as well. After a few adjustments I've become more aware of my body feeling out of place. I've noticed improved flexibility and even seem to be sleeping better now that my neck has had adjustments."

-Erin Flattery: Buncombe County & Asheville City Schools


"I found out about Merrimon Family Chiropractic through a co-worker. Serenity and Dr. Fortini came to the office for a presentation. All the staff are welcoming, super-friendly, and fun. Dr. Fortini and Dr. Ben have been very effective at correcting my spinal issues and improving my overall comfort and physical well being. My fiance and I usually come together to get treatments. Our overall experience so fr has been fantastic. Thank you!"

-Beckett Arnold: Buncombe County Rescue Squad


"I will be 72 yrs old in Feb. 2015. The last decade I have suffered with my neck, back and left knee. The most my primary care doctor could do was prescribe Hydrocodone, which only helped some. On June 12, 2014, I was stopped at a red light and hit in the rear by a lady traveling well over the speed limit. After many visits to my doctor I decided to come to Merrimon Family Chiropractic as I had heard great things about them. I thank God I did. After several weeks of adjustments most of my pain was totally gone! I now have my life back-virtually pain free. I am still improving each visit.

I cannot say enough about the doctors, therapists and other employees. They all feel like family to me, and I thank them and I love them for enriching my life with their care."

-Dorothy Fisher


"You guys are wonderful and the staff is like family. I didn't know how many times I had migraine headaches and my right arm was going numb at times. But they said one of my vertebrae in my neck was out of place. And now, I don't get anymore migraine headaches, and the numbness in my arm is gone. Each time I'm with them I'm learning all about chiropractic and how important your spine is."

-Jonathan Scott


"We are so blessed as a family to have all of you to be a great impact in our lives. This office is amazing! We can see all the love and concern for others. I was in constant pain, all over. I had nerve damage in my back and neck. But now, since they've adjusted my spine I can move more, have less pain, and my eyesight gets clearer every time they treat me. I'm also learning all about my spine. My pain is reduced about 60%. I am a miracle! Thank you so much!"

-Teresa Scott


"My name is Rick and I started coming to this office in Aug. 2014. I had problems staying bent over at the waist, as well as not being able to turn my head to the right very well. Now, that I am in maintenance, I feel like a new man. I can't say enough good things about all the doctors. They have been awesome! Then there is the office staff, the ladies here are the best hands down from any other doctors office I have ever been to. I want to thank everyone for such great care!



"I've always believed in chiropractic care. I think it's one of the best ways to care for yourself. But this is the first time time I have learned why it's so important, which I think is just as vital as the adjustments. The office has been so welcoming, which is something I needed after moving so far away from my home in New Jersey. I would tell everyone I cared for to come to Merrimon Chiropractic. They make you feel as though you are part of their family."

-Laren Polo

"Before coming to Merrimon Family Chiropractic I had chronic headaches and suffered dizziness. I had never thought much about seeing a chiropractor until a friend encouraged me to see one. I went in with a lot of skepticism. Now I can truly say I will continue chiropractic care. My headaches and dizziness are greatly improved. I love chiropractic! Dr. Fortini and Dr. Ben are great!"

-Colette Davis


"I have been fortunate to have very professional and sincere chiropractic care during my tenure with this office. The staff is extremely courteous and take the time with you to ensure you are well taken care of. I enjoy my exeperience here, and I love the way I feel when I leave the office."

-Ana Rivers


"When I began treatment here I was having trouble with my lower back getting very tight after standing a while or walking a lot. After a few months of treatment, I definitely felt a difference. I recently went on a 3 week trip to Italy where I walked 3-5 hours every day and stood in art galleries for hours. I had no trouble at all. If I had gone on this trip a year ago, I would've had to sit some things out. I truly appreciate how considerate and kind the entire staff is. Dr. Ben has always been on point with getting me feeling in tip top shape. I also really appreciate the reminder texts and emails I receive to keep me from missing an appointment. My parents have been coming to see Dr. Fortini and Dr. Resnick for years and we as a family are so grateful for everything that the staff does."

-Clare Beumer


"I came to this office because I was having headaches 2-3 times a week. The relief from headaches was almost instant. I have been seeing the doctors for almost 2 months. I have only had 2 headaches and they have not been near as bad as they were. I would tell anyone to come get checked by these doctors. They are amazing and have changed my life greatly!"

-Linda Mayberry


"I am pleased with the services provided. They provide the highest quality in service for a reasonable price. Constantly available for emergency adjustments. And the young ladies always have a smile and brighten my day no matter how I am feeling. Everyone listens and shows respect and understanding to all of my needs. I will continue to provide my business and refer others."

-Jeremy Riddle


Although I have had chiropractic care from other doctors, none compare to the care and compassion that Merrimon Family Chiropractic has shown me. I am a very busy person so having a chiropractor who works with me and has very flexible scheduling is something I greatly appreciate. I've also had financial trouble over the last few months, and they have been incredibly helpful with working out a payment plan that fits my needs. They are genuinely concerned with giving me the best chiropractic care possible.

As far as the care itself, when I walked into the office the first time, I was in constant pain. It was always worse when I was at work. By the end of my work day I would be in tears from the pain shooting up my back and down into my legs. I could barely walk. After the first month of care, I saw a huge difference. Going to work was no longer unbearable. I have seen so much improvement since I started coming to Merrimon Family Chiropractic. The whole team here has been wonderful, caring, honest and have done absolutely everything to give me the best experience in chiropractic care!"

-Kristen Hipps


"My introduction to chiropractic care began in the spring of 1965, following a back injury from a construction project. Over the years, I have continued chiropractic care on an as needed basis. In the summer of 1982, I hit a home run when I found Dr. Rob Resnick. I have been keeping monthly maintenance and treatments for the last 32 years. Dr. Rob is the best doctor I have known and I consider him a true and valuable friend.

At Merrimon Family Chiropractic, you feel like family when you walk into the office, and you know you are in good hands. All of the chiropractic care managers take an interest in each patient and let you know they care about you and your health and wellness.

May the Good Lord continue to bless all of these caring professionals at Merrimon Family Chiropractic."

-David Lankford


"When I first arrived at the office, I was a raging ball of pain and anxiety. What initially impressed me the most was the lack of judgement and the willingness to hear me out without dismissing my claims as all in my head. Since agreeing to treatment, I have been calmer and more active, and every week yields more progress. Currently, I am at 50% improvement with just two months of treatment. Epic win! Thanks to Dr. Fortini, Dr. Giebell and their staff, with all my love, appreciation and endorsement."

-Danielle Price


"I have always had on and off pain in my neck and shoulders. After my first few adjustments, I felt so much better. I wish I'd known years early this would help. They also helped me with a financial plan so I can continue my future chiropractic care without any worries. I am so excited! The staff is really pleasant and cares about my needs. The doctors are really encouraging and know what they're doing.

I have my dad with me now on every visit. To see the progress hes making is truly a blessing. I am so grateful for the doctors and staff at Merrimon Family Chiropractic. They have made such a wonderful difference in our lives!"

-Angela Rose


"When I first came to Merrimon Family Chiropractic I could not move my neck to look back when driving. I am now able to turn my head as far as possible and with monthly maintenance, I am pain free. I am working with my MD and my Chiropractor to use supplements to replace all prescriptions. Now, I'm down to just blood pressure medicine and by mid 2015, I should free of all prescriptions! :D"

-Mona Wade


"After a suggestion from my daughter I started Merrimon Chiropractic. I learned I have a few inches different in my leg, causing pain in my hip and lower back. After a few adjustments, I began to feel much better. I am able to walk upright without as much pain as before; best of all without all the medications. I am grateful for the care that has been given to me and my daughter."

-George Rose


"When I started coming to Merrimon Family Chiropractic I was having a severe migraine. It had lasted about 2 months before being introduced to chiropractic care. I was a bit nervous about my first appointment but I came anyway. At first the migraine kept coming back but the more I went, the less the migraine was present. Now, I no suffer from migraines at all. In addition, I have noticed my posture has greatly approved and my back does not feel as tired. I go to the gym regularly, and now I am able to push myself more there too!"

-Monica Miller


"I was injured in an auto accident and badly injured my neck. I woke up one morning and couldn't even move! After one week of treatment at Merrimon Family Chiropractic, mobility was already returning. I am nowhere near 100%, but the biggest thing is that my headaches are much less severe, and less often! Thank you guys! You are helping me get my life back!

-Jonathan Rotramel


"I never thought chiropractic care was for me since I didn't have anything "big" going on. However, Serenity came to a wellness fair at work and I decided to give it a try. It's helped me with some problem spots I didn't even know I had! The staff is wonderful and it's like going to a place where everyone knows you're name! :D"

-Katie Straub

I've enjoyed my experience with chiropractic care with Dr. Ben at Merrimon Chiropractic. he has helped remedy neck issues over the past year and I feel so much better! Thanks Dr. Ben!

Kerry McElroy

I have been coming to Merrimon Chiropractic for several years and have had much success with helping my back and neck problems. I have always had a good experience with both the doctors and the office staff.

Gary Cox


When I moved from out of state I knew I would continue in routine chiropractic. The first visit made, to be among several, as I shopped to select from options, was Merrimon Family Chiropractic, with Dr. Fortini available. My spouse and I interviewed him and had treatments. As we left the office our satisfaction told us we'd become regulars there. Now three years later this remains our choice for attentive, friendly and good care.

Mary Longknight
