Such nice office space. The Front Desk Manager was extremely helpful in scheduling me in for a same day appointment. With years of seeking medical attention for a severe neck/shoulder pain, Dr. Peter was the first Dr to sit with me and listen to my concerns. He was patient, attentive and created a treatment plan that I felt comfortable. His practice is modern, up to date and so comfortable. I highly recommend his practice if you're looking for quality treatment.

I saw Dr Peter to help me with some chronic back and neck pain. He did a fantastic job. Took his time to go over everything and explain what he was doing throughout the assessment. After the adjustment I felt so much better. Neck and back felt significantly better. I'll definitely continue seeing him.

Today, the "teacher" became the student/patient. In desperation and severe pain, I called my former chiropractic student, Dr. Kantzilieris to see if he could "fix" me. After a treatment by his gifted and truly magic hands, I walked out of the office totally upright for the first time today with an 80% reduction in pain. I never had a doubt. In the Paramus and surrounding area, look NO FURTHER than Next Step Chiropractic for your wellness needs!

After years of receiving treatment for a chronic pain condition at several other locations without much success, I visited Next Step Chiropractic in April. Dr. Peter is by the far one of the most understanding, respectful, and knowledgeable chiropractors out there. He genuinely cares about his patients and offers a variety of treatments, such as cold laser therapy and ultrasound. He came up with an individualized plan for me and for the first time in years, I have felt long lasting relief! I love that the office has individual treatment rooms for privacy. I highly recommend visiting Next Step Chiropractic and Dr. Peter.
