About Synergy Health
Innovative | Non-Surgical | Opioid Free
Synergy Health is one place where patients can come to truly get well. It’s the synergy of our team of experts that makes us unique and allows us to come up with an individual care plan for each patient. Having our diverse team of experts all under one roof makes health care more accessible to our patients and often more affordable, in addition to the benefit of having several people coming together to discuss their plan of care.
What Sets Us Apart?
At Synergy Health, our focus is not getting patients in and out. It’s
about developing relationships with every patient that walks through the door and providing them with quality care.
We are a full team of medical professionals working together under one roof and with one mission – to provide innovative, non-surgical, non-opioid treatments to help get people out of pain as soon as possible and back to the things they love.
Our main focus is providing patients with compassionate care, while also doing anything we can to improve the community around us. While the healthcare industry continues to change, the level of care at Synergy Health will always remain the same.
Non-Surgical, Opioid-Free Approach
At Synergy Health we have invested in the most advanced research, therapies and technologies to allow our medical team to get to the source of your pain and correct the problem. The days of turning to surgery first or masking the pain with addictive opioids and prescription medications are over.
Whether it’s chiropractic care, physical therapy, massage therapy or golf assessments, our team is dedicated to coming up with a solution that is unique to each patient.
Our patient care doesn’t end when you walk out the door. Inside our clinic we focus on patient experience and treating patients like family.
Our accomplished professional golf instructor works alongside a supportive team of innovative fitness and health experts to help you find your natural swing, while building your strength and flexibility to reach your full potential.

Meet the Synergy Team
Chiropractor and Owner
When Stephanie was practicing as a chiropractor alone, she quickly realized she didn’t have all the answers when it came to her patients. So she decided to add a few more experts to the mix and that is how Synergy Health came about.
By having a physical therapist, a medical professional, a massage therapist, a chiropractor along with other professionals all in one place, she feels confident in coming up with a unique solution for each individual patient no matter what the problem is.
As an accomplished professional golfer, Justin set out to establish Synergy Golf so he could help people find the swing that works the best for their body. While on tour, he had the privilege of playing with hundreds of golfers and one thing he noticed about each of their swings is that not one of them were the same.
Even when it came to the best golfers in the world, Justin had a hard time figuring out what they were doing that he wasn’t. Finally, it came to him – they were embracing their natural swing.
This is why Justin focuses on helping people find their signature swing that feels the most natural to them. He also works with a team of health and fitness experts to help people build strength and flexibility, so they can reach their full potential.
Ben Mendelsohn, M.D.
Dr. Mendelsohn takes a progressive approach when it comes to treating patients, particularly when patients approach him about pain. The overall approach to pain at Synergy Health is opioid-free and non-surgical.
Dr. Mendelsohn, along with other professionals at Synergy, focus on the functional problem that is causing the pain. The overall goal is getting patients functionally better instead of just masking the pain with dangerous prescription medications. Dr. Mendelsohn often works alongside Kara Corona, the nurse practitioner, to help patients get rid of their pain and meet their individual goals.
Corona became a nurse practitioner because she loves caring for patients. Her goal is to make sure each patient is feeling significantly better than the last time they came in. When patients come in feeling better, she feels like she is giving each patient what they need, which makes her strive to be a better provider.
Corona believes a good provider takes the time to listen to their patients. At Synergy Health, enough time is scheduled with each patient so providers can have a conversation to pinpoint the problem and come up with a plan for making it better.

Dr. Ellis obtained a degree in Psychology from University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and was a captain on the University lacrosse team.

Dr. Ellis is a hands-on therapist who thrives at educating his patients. He has worked with military personnel and professional athletes, and strives to help his patients reach higher levels of performance. Being through physical trauma, Dr. Ellis understands what it takes to rehabilitate not only physically, but mentally.

Dr. Ellis believes strongly in the multi-disciplinary approach to health care and asserts that health benefits are maximized when managed by a team rather than and individual practitioner.
