Dr. Marino Scafidi
I have suffered for several years with chronic and uncomfortable neck
pain that, while not stopping me from doing many things, has been a
constant source of trouble. I have tried acupuncture alone and while
that has been helpful in treating my symptoms of crunchies and extreme
stiffness on a temporary basis, I never knew what the real problem was
or what else I could do to help myself. My husband and I are part-timers
at Grayhawk and the second day back here this March, I was dropping off
dry cleaning at the Grayhawk Plaza and saw the door was open to the AZ
Chiropractic & Holistic Health Care Center. Just for the heck of it,
I went in, met Dr. Marino and his fabulous mother and part-time office
manager, Phyllis, and have been going back ever since! First of all, Dr.
M has an X-ray machine in his office so I was easily, quickly, and
rather inexpensively able to find out my problem: arthritis in the lower
cervical vertebrates. Knowing this, Dr. M was able to provide me with a
combination of services incorporating chiropractic, acupuncture
(without needles), acupressure, and other hand and machine techniques
that have really made a difference. One has to make a commitment to the
treatment and I did – about 4-5 weeks of 2X/week. Dr. M also recommended
a new pillow for me and I am really enjoying its benefits as well.
Arthritis is a chronic problem and while I can never get rid of it, I
have found that Dr. M’s combination of treatments and techniques has
really proven helpful to me. I have recommended folks to him and will
continue to do so.

Dr. Marino Scafidi’s office is conveniently located and is very comfortable and modern. To be completely honest, I haven’t been to the chiropractor in years because I hate being poked, prodded and cracked. I went to see Dr. Marino because my back was bothering me I spent less than an hour at the office and walked out feeling much better. All of Dr. Marinos equipment and tactics are modern and way less intrusive then I remember. I would recommend checking out his office
Dr. Scafidi and staff go above and beyond when assisting patient’s needs
and concerns. As a patient, I am extremely impressed with the office
and the overall professional core values it holds. Before every visit, I
receive a phone call to confirm my schedule appointment. Upon arrival, I
am always graciously greeted by the personnel. I love how the staff
remembers my concerns and always follow up. Dr. Scafidi, never rushes
the appointment, yet always takes his time to treat every distress and
answers any questions necessary. I must say, this office is one of a
kind, in regards to professionalism and patient care, therefore is a
positive recommendation on my behalf!
I would strongly recommend Dr
Marino Scafidi for anyone experiencing pain in their neck and/or back.
Dr Scafidi is the ultimate professional that utilizes mutliple treatment
modalities to effectively reduce and eliminate pain suffered from
trauma. I had a recent injury, and he used laser, adjustments, massage,
heat, stretching, etc that has been effective in my treatment.
I love this place and I have been telling everyone about it. The past Chiropractic centers I have been too just have you wait in a room and then when the doctor is ready, you get your adjustment. Here, you can get a massage (love these! Both of the girls that have given me massages were friendly and made me feel comfortable) and Dr. Marino is also very nice and professional. It’s a great place and has a very calming quality to it inside. You have to check it out!
I recently recieved a
therapeutic massage from a great therapist named Andrea. She really
helped out my chronic right shoulder pain. She was very skilled in many
modalities including hot rock, tai yoga and deeptissue. I could have
stayed there forever, I was soooooooooooo relaxed and will definitly be
back! You must stop in they are super friendly!!!!
The Arizona Chiropractic and Holistic Health Center is a top of the line facility supported by a professional, friendly, and highly skilled staff. I have experienced few health care establishments that I would recommend so highly. I appreciate that Dr. Marino Scafidi and his staff are highly attuned to my personal needs as well as the amount of education they offer concerning my own personal situation, I did not feel like “just another patient”. The facility itself offers a stylish, welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Needless to say I would highly recommend this practice and I plan to return for the amazing services they offer. Enjoy!!
Dr. Marino is a caring and wonderful doctor. He pays attention to detail and consitantly makes sure you, as the patient, understands everything and are comfortable. The office is equiped with state-of-the-art equipment that allows for complete care. The massage therapists are very well educated and knowledgable. I personally recommend Dr. Marino and staff for any issues concerning the well-being of the bodily structure.
I was recently in a car accident and my neck and mid back were killing
me I could hardly move. I was referred to Dr. Marino and his staff
through a friend (who has also had great experiences). My experience was
so unique I felt very welcomed not like most Dr offices.They first
started me on heat and traction which helped loosen me up a little then I
went to get a massage and it made all the difference she was so
wonderful and knowledgble. I was still a little sore but oh my goodness
then I went to get adjusted I didnt adjust very easy on the first time
but the whole experience that day made me feel safe and taken cared of I
can even explain how wonderful it was. Ive been going their now for
about a month now and I cant believe how far I have come and its all
thanks to this office. Everytime I go in their I leave better and
better. I would recommend this place to anyone who has been in a car
accident or anyone who wants to get great service and great therapies.
Dr. Marino was recommended to me by a close friend of mine and I have
been going to see him at least once or twice a month ever since.
Chiropractic has been a part of my life since I was a child so it has
always been important for me to find a chiropractor I love. Dr. M is
unique to many other chiropractors because he offers a variety of
treatments in addition to the adjustment itself. I love that I am there
for over an hour every visit and I walk out of there feeling so relaxed
and well taken care of! The combination of heat traction, massage
therapy, percussion, meridian balancing, and the adjustment are
amazing!! I feel very comfortable with Dr. M, as well as his staff, and I
appreciate that he is open to feedback and new ideas. I would recommend
to Dr. M to my friends and family and I have done so in the past.
Dr. M is
wonderful! Not your typical chiropractor, goes way above and beyond.
Customer service is fantastic and the personal attention makes it even
that much better! Keeps his appointment times so theres no waiting
around. I would and will be recommending any and everyong to Dr.M
I visited Dr. M for the first time a few weeks ago. I have never been to
a chiropractor before and was apprehensive to try it. I injured my
lower back and had tried multiple methods in hopes of finding relief,
but was not successful with traditional methods. As a classically
trained dancer, I am extremely hard on my body and have felt constant
mild discomfort for years. After only two visits to Dr. M, not only do I
feel relief from my lower back injury, but I also feel an overall sense
of well being. I would highly recommend Dr. M and his staff to anyone
seeking a clean and comfortable environment with a professional and
I dropped in to Dr. M’s office when he first opened a year or so ago,
looking for relief for some serious neck pain. I didn’t know what to
expect, hadn’t visited a chiropractor for many years, and found
acupuncture and massage were not enough. After about 3 weeks of 2-3
visits/week and a variety of different techniques used by Dr. M, I was
feeling so much better and continue to do so with a 1/week maintenance
schedule. I am only in AZ for 3-4 month a year but I schedule my
appointments with him before I even get out here. A shout out to staff
as well – Phyliss and Nicole! Clean, comfortable, and private. Would
recommend (and have) to everyone.
Dr. marino should be the
poster person for top of the line great care, effective relief and the
minimum-ization of symptoms and ongoing rehabilatation. His caring and
warmth are added benefits.My issues are complicated but fully understand
and proceeded with an exact plan of treatment. I’ve been to them all,
but this is the best!!!

My neck and low back muscles
felt thoroughly relaxed, and extremely loose after I recieved a 1 Hour
Therpeutic Massage from Cassandra at AZ Chiropractoc and Holistic Health
Center in North Scottsdale. My low back pain significantly decreased by
the end of our first session!! Cassandra was able to stretch areas that
I could not stretch on my own. She is excellent at targeting problem
areas, and using the necessary pressure to help the muscles release. I
highly recommend Cassandra for those with specific problem
areas/injuries, particularly hip and low back pain- you will leave
renewed and invigorated!
Dr Scafidi is an exceptional chiropractor. I went in for a visit 2 weeks
ago. Having gone to so many chiropractors in my life, I know the
difference when a chiro knows what he is doing and when he doesn’t. I
have a scoliosis that throws everything off on me. He definitely
understands the implications of what a scoliosis does to a person. After
the adjustment, all the tissue work, and pressure points that he
worked, I have less migraines, less aches now. I also noticed that I am
sleeping a lot more at night, more than the usual 4 or 5 hours that I
was doing before his work. I think that many of my aches and pains kept
me up at night. I will be returning here because I am getting the help

This doctor is fantastic! He gets it. The environment is very peaceful
and healing. He uses all kinds of accessory tools to make the
adjustments necessary, while his staff focuses on massages, heat
treatment. You are picked up at the front door and assisted all along
the way, through several steps each time. I had an auto accident
(rear-ended at a red light) and Dr. Scafidi and his staff are helping me
to heal! Dr. Scafidi insisted that I have a CAT scan when I came up
with symptoms of headache and light sensitivity. While other doctors
told me it was unnecessary, he insisted. I went to Thompson Peak ER and
was diagnosed with a concussion immediately after completing a head and
neck CAT scan. Three cheers and five starts to Dr. Marino Scafidi and
his entire staff. They are true professionals.

Just a quick shout out about this Chiro office. I purchased an on-line
massage deal for a 75 minute to die for session. Had no idea it was a
Chiro office. How lucky was I to find Dr. Scafidi right in my
neighborhood. Came out of my massage and there he was. Began a
conversation with him about adjustments and he really knows his stuff.
So I had an adjustment right there and then……WOW who knew my headaches
would go away and I mean right away. I have now become a regular for
adjustments once a week and massages once a month. And have not had a
headache since. Thank you Dr. Scafidi. The location is ideal right in
Grayhawk plaza for those of us who live up north….great staff, clean
environment, etc etc. Thank you Arizona Chiropractic & Holistic

I had an online coupon to try this place out and it was well worth it.
75 mins of bodily feel-goodednes. My massage therapist started me on a
sort of “warm up” by lying on a mechanical, heated massage table for
about 10 minutes. after that, she took me to the massage room and asked
if i would like to be stretched, which is rough for me, considering i
have tendons, ligaments, and muscles akin to steel bands. After that,
she pressed and kneaded and ground out alot of my aches and knots. this
wasn’t a relaxing massage….more of therapeutic one. however, i did feel
extremely awake, yet calm and clear afterwards. For the finishing touch,
she had me lay face down and did a mechanical percussion to my back
which actually felt pretty good. It was a great experience. the facility
is clean, spacious and sort of contemporary, but the massage rooms are
as cozy and soothing as they come. they also offer accupucture and
chiropractic services which i didn’t have time to take part in.

I started going to AZ Chiropractic because I had been getting horrible
migraines for years and Dr Marino said I should come in for a massage
and adjustment. 3 weekly visits later and my migraines started to
subside. 6 months later it’s rare that I get headaches at all!
Apparently they were migraines triggered by tension in my back and
shoulders and his massage therapists work on my back and shoulders once a
week and then Dr M adjusts me. If I miss a week I can definitely tell
because my headaches come back. It’s great to be able to stop taking
those powerful migraine medications and cure my headache through natural
methods! They really are a great group and really do their best to make
you feel comfortable and ensure that you are well taken care of! Best
part, my insurance covers most of the services so make sure you ask
Phyliss to check out your insurance coverage to save you some $$!!
