Kari

My name is Kari and I am a Chiropractic Assistant. I graduated from Concord Career College in November 2009 with a certification as a Medical Assistant. I have been working for Dr. Samila Hifai since December 2009 and I automatically loved working here. The staff and the patients here are very nice and friendly. Working at Hifai Chiropractic has helped me a lot because it has given me the experience I needed to be able to work in an office setting and I get to learn new things every day. Just like I like being an employee here I also like being a patient. Chiropractic care has improved my health dramatically. Since I can remember I have always had lower back problems but now I feel like a new person, my lower back no longer hurts even though I spend a lot of my time sitting down in a desk, thanks to the help of Dr. Samila Hifai. Just like chiropractic care has helped me, it will help you as well therefore; give us a call so we can schedule your first appointment today.


Roberta – Massage Therapist

Hello, my name is Roberta and I have been a massage practitioner since 1994. I specialize in Swedish, Deep tissue, Sports, Pregnancy and Hot Stone massage. I received my certification in Massage Bodywork at Desert Resorts School of Somatherpy in 1994.

As someone who loves to run and be active in many things, along with helping raise four wonderful kids, I personally know how one’s body can greatly benefit from the kind of thorough chiropractic care that Dr. Samila Hifai provides.   I have been given the opportunity to be a part of the wellness team here at Hifai Chiropractic to provide you with a benefit that your body will continue to feel long after your appointment, no matter which style of massage you choose.  I look forward to helping you.

Yuri Flores

Hi, my name is Yuridia Flores. I recently graduated from Brightwood College as a Medical Assistant.  I became a Chiropractic Assistant because I’ve always wanted to help people and make them feel important when visiting a Dr.’s office.  I’ve only been working for Dr. Hifai for a short period of time but in that time frame I have learned a lot about the patients and how chiropractic has helped them. The staff here is very nice, friendly and caring. Working for Dr. Hifai I get to learn new things every day and it has helped me get the experience in a doctor’s office.


Brittany

Hello I am Brittany,

I was born and raised in San Diego, California. I went to school to become a medical assistant. The whole reason I wanted to get in the medical field in the first place is because of my mother. She had breast cancer 3 years ago and is now in remission. Going to all her chemotherapies with her and helping out with whatever I could just made my urge to help people a lot stronger. I just knew I wanted to take a step toward a career that had meaning. Being a chiropractic assistant, I will be able to help people and help them get the care they need while getting rid of their pain they may have but, in a natural way.  I am also CPR certified and went through EMT school.  I am reliable, dependable, friendly, and open minded. Because of these skills, I know that I make a great addition to Hifai Chiropractic. Before working at Hifai Chiropractic, I have never been to a chiropractic office.  I suffered from migraines and neck pain and now I am seeing Dr. Hifai to help me with preventing migraines.  I also suggested my mom to come in and see Dr. Hifai. She has been coming in ever since and loves how she feels after being adjusted. When she first came in she could barely walk without any pain. Now she is back to doing things she loves, such as cooking!
