- Graduate from a four year college.
- Completing at least two years undergraduate study, with a focus on the sciences.
- Four years of Chiropractic Education.
- Take mandatory internships.
- At least 900 hours of work in a Chiropractic Clinic.
- After graduating, pass written and oral board exams, at national and state levels.
A Chiropractor may opt to choose to advance their degree in an area of specialty. These areas include: Chiropractic neurology, radiology, sports medicine, as well as many other fields.

I have been seeing Dr. Quynh for about a year now. Prior to seeing her I was misdiagnosed by a handful of doctors, prescribed medication for my misdiagnosis, and was very frustrated with my body for 7+ years. After working with Dr. Quynh for about 6 months all of my symptoms were virtually gone!! Dr. Quynh is very pleasant and easy to open up to. I genuinely enjoy going to our appointments. I have recommended her to a good amount of friends and family and everyone has similar reviews. If you are frustrated with your body and traditional doctors prescribing medication without understanding the true root cause of your pain then please just make an appointment here. It will absolutly change your life.
Quynh is the best never had someone who was always there for me and continually striving to help highly recommendable if you are serious about making changes quynh is the best 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Dr. May and Quynh are integral members of my health care team. Every diagnosis made and supplement recommended have been on-target. They have had a huge impact on my health.
I love Dr. May, Quinn they are both amazing! I highly recommend them. I have never felt so great, they have helped me to lose weight, helped me with my anxiety condition. They treat your gut, do not just put a bandaid over the issue the way regular MD doctors do by prescribing prescriptions. Supplements are given to help fix the issue an correct it. A healthy gut is important for your overall health. Without a healthy gut you will have issues. Can’t wait for my next appointment!!!
Quinn is also awesome. Very helpful solving my problems. I recommend them both.
I've had multiple appointments with Dr. May. Like always it was very helpful. Dr. May is very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and easy to talk to. Her assistant Quynh is just as wonderful. Jennifer, who runs the office is lovely too. She is very efficient, helpful, and concerned. I only recommend them if you're looking for the best.
I have been very happy with the skill, graciousness and professionalism of Debra May during my treatment at her office. I am much improved. Thank you! The support staff is friendly, caring & efficient. I highly recommend!!
I would recommend Dr. May. She's been here for a long time and does a phenomenal job.
In response to Ms. Shed's review. I am very sorry for any misunderstanding. It is our office policy that new patients arrive 1/2 hour prior to their appointment time with the necessary paperwork completed. This is done so that I can thoroughly review them and start your appointment on time. Our office prides itself on being punctual and respecting our patients time. We've run our office in this manner for the past 33 years and have always received nothing but thank you's and compliments for treating our patients in a very caring, efficient and respectful manner. As I do apologize for a several weeks wait for a first time appointment, It is a true testament to the specialized care that is brought forth. My office manager Jennifer is a knowledgeable, caring person that is always accommodating to all of our patients needs At all times and treats everyone with respect and dignity. I am proud to have her as a reflection of my office. I am sorry that your experience with Jennifer didn't reflect this. It is unfortunate that you felt it necessary to attempt to taint my reputation by putting forth the "horrible" review that you threatened Jennifer that you would do. It is also unfortunate that the internet is used as such a forum. In response to the private letter that you felt "compelled" to send me, please be assured that I am aware of the reflection that my staff has upon me and I could not be more proud to work with people that treat my profession and my patients with the utmost dignity, care and respect. As you stated in your letter "One's reputation is a key to one's success". I couldn't agree with you more. I've enjoyed such success for 33 years now. Again, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. My office is always available to you and any of your future needs. Dr. Debra L. May
I love Dr May! If you start seeing her you need to stay true and follow thru. As time goes by your body starts to feel better. You can fall of the wagon for a party or holiday but jump right back on. Disease these days is caused by the foods we eat. Especially SUGAR, GLUTEN and DAIRY. So good luck. As I said. Love Dr May!
Dr. May is caring and helpful. She spent a long time assessing me with no invasive testing, determining my needs and food sensitivities, and developing a plan of care, including diet based on my personal needs.
Dr Debra May and staff are friendly, professional and helped us find answers regular doctor's office could not provide.
I've been to every specialist in medicine doctors none could tell me what is wrong with me. I was referred to doctor May by a friend of mine and my first visit she asked me all types of questions She spoke with me thoroughly about my problem within a week of taken the vitamins she recommended I was a new person. Before I could not even function at all thank you Dr May No medical doctor could tell me what was wrong. I recommend Doctor May to anyone who is having an issue with their stomach, allergies or breathing She's amazing. Thank you. Dr Mays staff is very helpful and polite too.
I was very apprehensive about sering dr may. It took me several years of unsuccessfully dealing with my multiple sclerosis to finally make an appointment. I am so happy i met dr may. She is knowledgeable and took the time to talk with me after my exam. Her staff is amazing. I cant wait for my follow up in 3 weeks.
Proffessional and friendly
Dr May is very knoledgeable and seems passionate about her calling. I've only just started treatment so can't speak for that as yet. Her assistant Quinn is a pleasure to deal with. Her receptionst Jennifer is a bit curt. She probably is dealing with a lot of annoying people that waste Dr May's limited availability. A little bit more finesse in dealing with the patients wouldn't hurt.
Professional and very informative
Very enlightening experience. Looking forward to making changes, seeing results and felling better.
Very good experience
High Quality Service
Appointment was on time and the time with Dr. May was great. She listened to my needs and concerns and with great professionalism and kindness she was able to offer me treatments and solutions to my conditions. She is great to talk to.
I enjoyed the visit; Very enlightening and amazing to learn about ones body and system in such an informative way. I look forward (somewhat 😄) to start the cleansing part of the program. Thanks Dr. May n Quynh
Staff was pleasant,. Dr. May was professional, explained every thing she was doing step by step. My son has Tourettes she knew exactly how to handle him , spoke directly to him and was very caring. Thank you for understanding Look forward to our next appointment
Great service, very knowledgeable and friendly
It was a very interesting and insightful visit. I learned lot and it mahe's a lot of sense to me.
So relieved I finally found the right Doctor and place to feel better in health and myself! Looking forward to knock out all my health issues and finally feel fabulous again! Thank you!!
Best on the island.
Today I had an appointment with Dr. May. Like always it was very helpful. Dr. May is very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and easy to talk to. Her assistant Quynh is just as wonderful. Jennifer, who runs the office is lovely too. She is very efficient, helpful, and concerned. I only recommend them if you're looking for the best.
Dr May and Dr Quinn rock@
Not yet 1 month in and most of my health issues are gone and I'm down 15lbs not to mention in the past 20yrs I have 1 bowel movement weekly and now I have a daily routine without pain suffering or dubbleing over, ty and God bless you both 😊
Never Felt Better
I'm a newbie with Dr May. I'll have my 2nd visit this Tuesday. But the last three weeks has proven to me that Dr May is the way to go. I suffer from migraines and I've been feeling sluggish for the last couple of months. After running a number of tests to my body - I was given supplements and a nutritional diet. I've followed it for three weeks now. Fewer headaches - and my body feels free of toxins, lean and clean. Dr May also found out that my thyroid was so totally exhausted and gave me supplements for this problem. I feel incredible and will follow doctors orders. For years I've undergone different doctors and scripts that just didn't work. Wish I would have come sooner to Dr May. My recommendation for anyone is 100% for Dr May and her wonderful staff and her nutritionist
Best care !
Kind & friendly staff and great & caring doctors.
Warm, caring and highly professional
Both Dr. May and Dr. McLeod are warm and caring professionals who are very good at that they do. Dr. May helped me to lose 15 pounds and learn to eat healthier. Dr. McLeod treats me for lower back issues and has helped to keep me pain free. They always take the time to answer your questions and they are very positive and encouraging.
Holistic approach Quality Care Excellent Dr's
Dr May is a wonderful kind hearted person who actually helps with your problem instead of masking it with traditional medicine. She takes a Holistic approach and incorporates nutritional healing through food to help with your remedy. It's a simple but very overlooked treatment. The results are amazing but you must stick with it. Unfortunately like alot of people they want quick results. If you want quickness go see Dr Giannone and get Vicodin or Xanax or Percocet or some other crap. She will help I guarantee you that. My results were nothing short of amazing. If you want care make an appointment, if not the go shoot some heroin like the rest of Staten island.
Dr.Mcleod is the best! She is always so kind and always makes me feel so much better than when I walked in!
I am very pleased with Dr. McLeod....After having a dr I loved for many years, I didn't think I was going to be so lucky to find even a better one.
The best in Staten Island.
I had an appointment with Dr. May today. I have been going to her for several years. Dr. May is very knowledgeable, caring, understanding, and very easy to talk to. She has cured me of problems that no other Doctor could do. I would only recommend her.
The best of the best!
I had an appointment today with Dr. May. Like always, she is right on target with anything that is wrong with my health, and always knows how to remedy it. She is extremely knowledgeable, caring, compassionate, understanding, and easy to talk to. I have been going to her for several years, and feel very safe and confident with anything she tells me. Chelsea by the front desk is also wonderful - very friendly and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. May if you're interested in staying healthy the natural way.
Always a wonderful experience.
Dr. May and Dr. McLeod are very rare type of doctors. They are both very knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. They listen to their patients' concerns and offer suggestions about treatment options. They do not use a "one size fits all" approach but instead tailor their treatments to their patient's needs.
Good experience very informative
High quality care from Dr. May and her staff. The best in the hollistic field. Looking into becoming a hollistic doctor myself.
She treats you with herbal medicine to fix the problem, not mask the problem like most traditional doctors do. It amazing because I immediately started feeling better. The same day I made slight changes to my diet and took the herbal supplement she prescribed and noticed that she was actually fixing my problem. I think I will see her in the future if any problems arise and try to steer away if possible from traditional doctors that just prescribe medications. I am glad to know that I can put my total trust in this amazing doctor. I just finished her 10-day treatment for my digestive issues and feel 100% better. She has definitely helped me and I would definitely go back to her in the future. I highly recommend her to everyone.
A very pleasant,professional office. Everyone was wonderful!
I am very pleased with this office. Dr May and Quinn have been instrumental in making me confident that I will reach my goals and obtain optimum health!
Thank you Dr. May and Quinn for always greeting me a smile and making me feel comfortable during my visits.
I was very happy with my overall experience. Dr May was very thorough and explained things so that I could fully understand.
I found everything and everyone to be pleasant and welcoming. I felt very comfortable with Dr. May and with Quinn, her assistant. I am very happy with my overall experience.
Good Follow-up visit
Appointment was on time. Dr. May was kind and asked all the right questions and she was very encouraging about my progress. Answered all the questions asked to her and talk about what the next month would be like. A good follow-up visit,
Dr. May is very thorough professional and friendly. Made me feel very comfortable . My mom has been going to her for years and we recommend her very highly to everyone. Great experience .
First visit. So far so good! Wonderful doctor and staff!
Front desk, very polite willing to accommodate you
Dr Mays office is professional and well ran. The office staff is willing to work with you on appointments to fit your schedule. Dr May is a wonderful Person and a caring and dedicated doctor.
Wonderful experience, the individual attention is a welcomed change from my previous dr. Who had an assembly line. Dr. Took the time to talk with me and share my concerns and only then set out with a plan of action. Wonderful experience I look forward to my next appointment.
My Initial Visit
Dr. May Appears to have identified the issues I've been having. Although this is my first visit, I was pleased as the doctor spend a lot of time with me in an effort to get to the bottom of this condition that has plagued me for the past six months.
My first office visit with Dr. May.
I long awaited my first visit to Dr. May's office today. I was very excited to finally meet her. I have only heard positive reports from so many people who have gone to her. I believe in Dr May's approach to medicine not the normal approach the way doctors are trained. I strongly feel she has addressed a long term problem I have had my whole life. Her testing has pinpointed my issues. Let's see how I do to follow her method. I am faithful that I will benefit greatly from her approach. I know it will take a lot of willpower but the benefits in the end will be 100% worth it!
Accommodating and helpful!
I am a 55 year old male and I went to Dr. May because I had put on weight and was feeling very uncomfortable in addition to being concerned about my health. She evaluated me thoroughly and put me on a nutrition plan for 5 weeks that eliminated certain foods from my diet. It was somewhat challenging because I had to change my eating habits, but overall it was not difficult to stick to the nutrition plan. When I went to see Dr. May again 5 weeks later I had lost 13 pounds and was feeling great. I am continuing under her treatment and hope to lose another 12 pounds which will bring me to my desired weight.
Best Dr. In Staten Island for the safe and natural alternative.
I have been going to Dr. May for several years. She is very caring, understanding,easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. Dr. May's assistant Quynh is also wonderful. She is friendly, professional, and very easy to talk to. Jennifer who runs the front desk is just as friendly, professional, easy to talk to, and very efficient. The one thing that always comes to my mind is when I had food poisoning for 5 weeks, Dr. May was the only doctor that cured me. If anyone doesn't want to depend on drugs and would rather go with natural and safe cures, I highly recommend Dr. May.
Always warm and wonderful!
Always happy with my visit--concerned and capable staff make each appointment great.
I always feel better when I come here for Chiropratic adjustments. Dr. McLeod is very welcoming and listens to my chiropractic needs. Also the Nutrition aspect has helped me get my body and life in order. Dr. May is always right. I can't explain how she does it, but she's always on point, with what's going on with my body. The rest of the staff is very welcoming and helpful as well.
Always pleasant and friendly! Jennifer was wonderful. Thank you ladies!
