Stephanie Cirone, DC


Hello people of Athens! My name is Dr. Stephanie Cirone. I am a graduate of Life University Chiropractic College. I was introduced to chiropractic at a young age having grown up amongst several chiropractors. Knowing I wanted to be a healthcare provider, and learning the importance of what it means to have a healthy spine and well communicating nervous system lead me to my chiropractic career today. I work using several techniques based on each individual’s needs and what we determine works best for you. I was born and raised in south Jersey, where I attended Rowan University. In my free time I love spending time outdoors, working on fitness, or painting. I am new to Athens and would love to hear all your recommendations! See you around the office!
