Dr. McLeod has had the pleasure of practicing chiropractic in the Staten Island community since 2011. She received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree from New York Chiropractic College, where she also received a Masters in Applied Clinical Nutrition. She also has a Bachelors in Psychology from LIU – Southampton.
Dr. McLeod is a passionate and caring physician who uses gentle, non-invasive techniques to evaluate you. Through various methods of diagnosing, Dr. McLeod “thinks outside the box” to find the underlying cause for your complaint. Sometimes the body could be feeling pain in one area, but the root issue is elsewhere, making it difficult to diagnose.
Dr. McLeod is a life long learner and dedicates herself to learning everything she can which may help her patients. She is always seeking to further her education and keep an open mind to new ways of assessing and healing.
Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live.

Doc, she’s beautiful. She’s crazy about me. Look at this, look what she wrote me, Doc. That says it all. Doc, you’re my only hope.
Occipital neuralgia is pain resulting from trauma to the lesser and/or greater occipital nerves, located in the back of the head. This pain can be felt in the upper back, neck and behind the ears and is usually sharp and shock-like in nature. Numbness can also occur in these regions. It can be difficult to differentiate from other headaches like migraines and tension headaches.
