We strive to have our patients reach their fullest, God-given potential.

Do you know that chiropractic is restorative, drug-free, non-invasive, and has no known side effects? At Auburn Chiropractic Health Clinic, we treat the newly born as well as the aged, and all ages in between. Also, with our practice in Auburn, Alabama, we have been serving the Alabama-Georgia region since 1999. We welcome the opportunity to serve new patients, and we encourage you to call us and schedule an appointment to discover how chiropractic care may benefit you.

Why I Am a Doctor of Chiropractic

  • Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy
  • Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope
  • Because I choose to treat the patient with the disease, not the disease
  • Because I seek to correct the cause, not its effect
  • Because I have been called to serve others
  • Because I want to make a difference
  • Because every day I get to witness miracles

Sharon Johnson

Insurance & Billing

Having been a member of Dr. Pitt's staff at Auburn Chiropractic Health Clinic for almost 10 years, I still look forward to coming to work every day! One reason is the wonderful atmosphere, as well as great co-workers. Most importantly, I get to be a part of something much bigger than myself, and that is seeing patient's health improve and make a difference in their lives. My husband and I have been married for over 42 years, and we have one daughter. Cooking is not only a necessity but also enjoyable when time permits; I also paint and write songs.
