Let's tell you a little bit more about our doctors.
Our Chiropractic Team
Perhaps the first thing you should know is that Dr. Christopher Mooradian and Dr. Mary Lavin are a team both in and out of the office. After graduating from The National College of Chiropractic, they married in 1986 and then spent a year as Associate Physicians in Virginia. Upon returning to Connecticut in 1987, they opened a joint practice in New London followed in 1988 by a satellite office in Mystic. They currently reside in East Lyme, Connecticut with their two children, Sarah and Emily and their dog Gracie.
Although the doctors graduated from the same Chiropractic College , they have over the years developed different areas of expertise and a wide variety of interests that has served to complement each other’s strengths. This has allowed them to provide their patients with accurate diagnostic skills, a wide variety of treatment options, and extensive information on good nutrition, diet, home exercise and rehabilitation.
Both doctors have a well-established referral base in the medical community, and they do not hesitate to refer out, or co-manage a condition, if it is in the best interest of their patients. While there is no question that this is a great Chiropractic team, you might want to meet the doctors individually to learn more about them.

Excellent Chiropractor who really cares about helping you.
I was always skeptical of chiropractors until this past winter, when I visited Eastern Shore Chiropractic. I knew something was different about the place as soon as I walked in. The office is very small, and all the staff are friendly, down-to-earth, and helpful. Most importantly, Dr. Mooradian is fantastic. He was straightforward with treatment and only gave advice that he knew would be immediately applicable to my daily routine. Most importantly, he was extremely up-front and transparent about pricing and insurance coverage. When my insurance company gave us misinformation and stopped covering costs, he called the company himself to dispute. If my insurance covered it, I would probably still be going to see him! Highly recommend!
The absolute best.
skillful, gentle, compassionate, healer
I have been a patient of Dr Mooradian for over 25 years and the service is always professional and high standard. I always have complete confidence in the treatment and have recommended him to many people and all are very happy with their results .
Professional, friendly and compassionate
As someone who does not like going to the doctor, I felt at ease from the first phone call, to make an appointment, to my last visit with Dr. Mooradian. I got in to see Dr. M right away and always knew what to expect thereafter. No surprise fees or unnecessary visits. I felt cared for on a personal level and it seemed as though everyone who came in was treated like family ; ) Very nice people and Dr. M’s care efficient and spot on! I felt better almost immediately and all my issues / questions were addressed. I would highly recommend Dr. M ~ 100% genuine.
Very accommodating with my schedule changes.
Always available for me and always helps my issue!
The staff are very friendly and being a furloughed worker with DHS, are willing to work with me on the copayments.
As a health professional myself, I have very high expectations for my own healthcare. I have been seeing Dr. Mooradian on and off as needed for chiropractic care for many many years. He is an exceptional practitioner. In my experience many chiropractors act more like businessmen, treating patients as if they're on an assembly line and keeping them coming back, whether it's needed or not. Dr. Mooradian treats each patient individually. He is highly intelligent with a broad wealth of knowledge in many areas, especially nutrition. His skills as a chiropractor include many different techniques that he utilizes in his treatment. He is also open to other complementary health practices and offers many helpful suggestions and teachings. I have referred many people to Dr. Mooradian and everyone has the same response, thanking me for the referral.
Dr. Mooradian is extremely caring about his patients and passionate about his work. He spends time listening in order to provide the best possible treatment. He is very open and honest in recommending if another Dr. would be better option. His goal is to have a patient be pain free and able to function in their everyday life. Dr. Mooradian provides terrific scheduling and attempts to treat patients promptly. He doesn't overbook or have patients sit in the waiting room for an extended period of time. He's also a very amiable person and makes the treatment process comfortable.
Professional and thorough
Dr. M was great, very educational and helped my back pain go away very quickly! I highly recommend their practice for any back issues!
Thank you for taking me at the last minute. The treatment that you did on Friday did the trick and all those aches went away allowing me to enjoy our Christmas vacation with our children.
Knowledgeable and friendly
Wonderful well informed Dr. Super staff.
Excellent high quality service
Chris goes above and beyond for his patients. He has been a big help with my issue and reached out to other professionals to assist me. Recommend him highly
Very helpful. I left feeling better and have continued to be comfortable with no discomfort or need for follow up right now.
caring and efficient
Dr. Maroodian is what gives Eastern Shore Chiropractic a five star rating. After a thorough assessment of my hip, back, and leg pain, he contacted my primary doctor to see that I recieved the correct medicine, the correct Xrays and M.R.I to confirm his diagnosis, then set up an appointment with the proper doctor. After having cortisone injected into my hip, my pain is all but gone and I will be able to go on vacation as planned in April. It's such a nice feeling to have someone in your corner and push for what is right.
High quality care tailored to your specific needs every time
I had been suffering from lower back pain for a few years and had another chiropractor before coming to Eastern Shore Chiropractic. The other chiropractor just adjusted my lower back on one side, then the other each time the same way no matter how I said my symptoms may have changed. I was told at the other one that they wanted to see me 3 times each week for 4 months, and if I missed a visit, they hounded me to make it up, going 4 times or even 5 times the next week. Not only that, but my back pain only improved moderately, and flared up badly on occasion even while going on that rigorous schedule. So I tried Dr. Mooradian, who's initial physical exam was far more thorough than my previous chiropractor. Not only that, but the questions he asked about my symptoms revealed a deeper understanding of the different origins and manifestations of lower back pain. When I visit him, he does a brief exam and asks questions, then treats my symptoms with different adjustments depending on what his exam reveals that day. Also, he only wants to see me when I'm having pain, which thankfully, is far less frequent and severe since I started seeing him about 3 years ago. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I know now the true benefits of chiropractic care, and Dr. Mooradian is a real healer.
Thanking Dr. Mooridian for his services. He's an excellent doc and took good care of me! I went to see my GP and he sent me for an MRI and found degenerative disc disease and I will be seen on January 10, 2017 by Orthopedic Partners. I appreciate Eastern Shore Chiropractic for their wonderful care while I was there.
We have been always very satisfied with the service and treatment for many years now.
Love Dr. Mooridian!! Most knowledgeable I have ever met!
Always helping my body heal itself!
I go to Chris ad soon as I have had a mishap whether I have tweaked my back gardening, traveling it falling off my bike! Within a few short treatments I am back on my way to a pain free active lifestyle! Thank you for helping me heal so fast so I can get back to myself.

The doctors keep up all all the new techniques in the field and they genuinely care about their patients. They are the best chiropractors in the area, I highly recommend this office to all.
