If you have any fear or anxiety about seeing a chiropractor, Dr. Dubois is pretty much perfect. He has an innate sense for seeing/feeling what is wrong with my back. Unlike other chiropractors (even the other good ones), he uses different techniques that are very gentle – I never feel like I am falling off the table, and he has never cracked my neck. He has a single treatment room and does not multi-task among several clients. We all get his complete attention, and sessions are much shorter with no “pre-treatment.” During the sessions, he repeats his questions and advice every time, not assuming that I remember everything he has ever said. He frequently checks to make sure that I am comfortable. He is *very respectful* and never makes me feel foolish for doing anything that ended up landing me in his office. Dr. Dubois also never makes me feel guilty for my lifestyle of zero exercise. I told him that my previous chiropractor (not local) was pretty good, but she overwhelmed me with too many exercises. Since I do not have an athletic bone in my body, I quickly gave up on all of them. He listened(!!), and picked three mild exercises for me, starting off with only two of them *after* I had had enough sessions that my pain was gone. Some mornings, Dr. Dubois’ partner (who oversees the therapeutic exercises) brings the mildest, calmest dog that I have ever met. But if you have a phobia of dogs, tell them ahead of time. I’m sure they will accommodate your needs. A million thank you's for all of your care!

If I could give more stars I would. I am so grateful for my treatments here over the last few months! I am SO incredibly sad to be moving out of the state but if you're looking for a team of people who are incredibly kind, informative, and willing to really listen, look no further. I was blown away by the attention to detail and care for my spine. I had lower back pain for years, and Dr. Dubois was the first to recommend an x-ray to get to the bottom of it! The results are night and day. I have more strengthening of my spine to do, but the pain was unbearable and my quality of life has drastically improved. I felt validated in my pain as a patient (former athlete) and years in the service industry, and I couldn't be more grateful for all of the teams help in my recovery. A million times THANK YOU for all the healing!

It is so unfortunate as a patient of Dr. DuBois that I have to leave due to a move. He is invaluable with his thorough care and thoughtful concern for your well being. And he has been truly accommodating to see you quickly when you are in pain. I have been coming here for years; I’ve lost count because I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I can’t say enough about Robin and Michelle too. You really feel like a human being who is really cared for and treated with a calming kindness. That’s hard to find these days. I will miss this team tremendously and hate the thought of finding a new practice. But…c’est la vie. Wishing you all many wonderful years of helping and healing us humans. :)

I had not seen a chiropractor in years as I have osteoporosis and the last chiropractor I went to did traditional "back cracking". I had taken a bad fall which had resulted in clavicle surgery since my last adjustment years ago so I was not ready to ever be "cracked" again. I was referred to Dr. DuBois by my Myofascial Release specialist. Dr. Dubois had x-rays done before he even began any procedures (something no previous chiropractors had done) -- which provided me a great level of comfort. Dr. Dubois used gentle intervention with instrument adjustment technology. I feel great and feel confident now in continuing chiropractic treatments in future -- something I thought I would never do again with osteoporosis.
I am so grateful to have found Swiss Chiropractic Clinique. Dr. Dubois, Robin, and Michelle are all so kind and wonderful. I had ongoing neck and back pain for many years and found relief very quickly upon coming here. I now feel like I have a solid foundation to build on, and I can live more freely and fully!
Ongoing challenges as I’ve gotten older that Dr Dubois quickly addressed much to my relief! Wear and tear from running and other misuses have negatively impacted my health but between Dr D and Robin I feel like a new man!!!

Dr. D has helped me a great deal in dealing with my back pain. He is extremely knowledgeable and his advice has always proved to be correct. I have seen many chiros in the Triangle and he is by far the best one I have worked with yet.
- Eric B.
I visited Dr. Dubois because of discomfort in my lower back, lower neck and shoulder. He analyzed the problems and he then discussed a treatment plan that has worked out great for me. They are lovely people and very caring, I strongly recommend them if you are in need of a wonderful Chiropractor.
- Jacques D.
Dr. DuBois helped me with chronic neck and back pain that had been making me miserable and giving me daily migraines. I don't understand how his treatments work - but they do! He also gives you exercises to help keep your body healthy and prevent future injury. Everyone in his office is wonderful - Dr. DuBois, Robin, and Michelle - I highly recommend this practice to anyone!
I came to Dr. Dubois about 2 years ago after being in nearly constant pain for at least a year and a half. I was having severe sciatic and low back pain, and had exacerbated it by overlifting the summer before I came to Dr. Dubois. I had seen other chiropractors, but Dr. Dubois was the first to take an xray, and then when he suspected a bulging disc, he had me go through more testing, and finally confirmed his suspicions with an MRI. I had three bulging discs, and when we began treatment, I couldn't even imagine life without pain any more. Now, after two years of Dr. Dubois' treatments and of following his advice, my lower back is no longer constantly inflamed. I do have some occasional low back and hip pain, but it goes away quickly once I change the activity that is causing it. I am very thankful for the help Dr. Dubois has given me, and highly recommend him as a chiropractor and medical professional.
- Teresa F.
I had around 20 years of pain before seeing Dr DuBois. I wasn't expecting any miracles after seeing many specialists and going through physical therapy for 2 years total, but that is exactly what I got. I have made steady progress over the past year and now live an almost pain free life. I didn't think that was possible for me and am grateful every single day. Thank you so much.
- Robin S.
I had a great experience with Dr. DuBois. He was very thorough diagnostically, and he reviewed all of my previous records. He was very gentle and kind, and he did as much as he could for my neuropathic pain. His interventions decreased my level of pain considerably, and I am very thankful to him for the help he gave me. I highly recommend him.
- Sandra C.
I have had back issues for over 20 years. Recently I had a bad flare up and called the3 chiropractor I had seen for 20 years. He told me he had retired. I found Dr. DuBois through my yoga teacher, Cathy Holt. After one visit, I was 95% pain free, and after my second, I was in no pain at all. I am so happy to have found such a good, thorough and professional chiropractor. I will be a client until he retires, too!
- Dr. L.
I was referred to Dr. DuBois by a friend of a friend with a difficult problem resulting from a fall. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no idea what to expect. Dr. DuBois was wonderful. I had many questions and he took much time to explain and answer all of them. He started slowly and proceeded with care. He will definitely refer you to another professional if he feels that he isn't able to help with or solve your particular problem. I highly recommend him. Both of his associates, Michelle and Robin were both always helpful, professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. All over, a great experience.
Dr. Dubois and Robin are the perfect combination of professionalism and warmth, with a knowledge base that inspires confidence and produces results! I'm so grateful to have found them during my 2 years in Chapel Hill. After fracturing my C2 in bike accident in May of 2014, and suffering from lingering pain in the years after the accident, I had started to worry I'd be in pain forever (I'm only 28, so this idea was hard to accept!). It was surprising to me that something that seemed so subtle could make such a difference, but after a few months working with Dr. Dubois, I began to notice I was no longer experiencing daily, distracting pain. Even my husband commented -- "You're complaining much less, so this is worth every penny," haha. Agreed! I'd whole heartedly recommend the team at Swiss Chiropractic Clinique. Thanks for everything!!!

Dr. DuBois received his chiropractic education in Switzerland, where chiropractic students are considered medical students and are required to obtain a six-year Bachelor of Medicine degree by completing all core medical classes in addition to their chiropractic specialty courses before entering the Masters of Chiropractic Medicine program. This exceptional training is evident in Dr. DuBois’ thorough medical understanding of the body and his knowledge of the ways to assess and alleviate pain and dysfunction. My husband and I have been fortunate recipients of his care for the last five years, and he has been essential to our coping with a variety of issues, from arthritic joints to scoliosis to occasional injuries. In addition to being a consummate professional in his approach, he is a careful listener, remembers our history, and is a very caring person. On two occasions when a problem has arisen he has worked us into his fully booked schedule with no hesitation. The staff are intelligent, kind and helpful, as well. This is a practice where you are cared about, not just a name on a patient list. We are very fortunate to have found this dedicated practitioner and wish that all of medical care was delivered with such wisdom and compassion!

I was referred to Dr. Dubois after a herniated disc was causing massive amounts of pain - I couldn't lay down and was trying to sleep sitting up. I was a mess. Between January and May he gradually reduced the inflammation and helped me be mindful of not doing things that would send me backwards. I am now in better shape than I was when I first came to his office. I trust Dr. Dubois' judgement and his very helpful and caring staff. It is a family-run business and that care comes across to the patients.
- David D.
I have been suffering from chronic pelvic pain for years and no one has been able to help me like Dr. Dubois has. I am pain free and feeling better than ever. Thank you!!
- Lorna A.
Several years ago I had major neck issues plus, as I was getting older, my inherited osteoporosis problems started kicking in. With Dr. DuBois' help, my neck issues are no longer a problem and with the exercises he prescribed and regular maintenance check-ups, my "framework" is no longer going down hill. No matter what the issue/problem is, he is always there for you, listening, asking questions, and caring. This is really a family practice that is interested in their patients and their patients health. Thank you for being there for me!
- Hope O.
"I herniated a disc Dec. 16, 2016 and was referred to Dr. Dubois in mid/late January (after trying several different things to avoid surgery). On a scale of 1-10 my pain level was a 12. It was debilitating and I was on some heavy meds just to cope with daily life. I couldn't lay down to sleep. I couldn't pick up my kids or hug them without massive pain. However, I am young and wanted to try anything to avoid surgery. I've never been much of a fan of a chiropractics, but was willing to try anything. I was skeptical. However, with his guidance - I have been mindful of my actions, am eating better, cut out alcohol, and listened to his advice - I have now been 100% pain free since May and was able to sleep laying down (normally) within a month of my first visit. He is honest and direct. If he can't do anything for you he will tell you. I am not going back on a weekly basis anymore...I am on a 3-4 month check-in cycle. And, I imagine, after we monitor my situation for a given time, and I continue to make improvements, then we will cut it out altogether. His goal is not to have you as a patient for the rest of your life. His staff are sweet ladies and the atmosphere is one of family. I'm a convert and a huge fan. Best part...I can hug and pick up my children without pain!"

"I was in constant pain that was interfering with my life and being a new mother. Dr. Dubois worked his magic and made me feel like a new person! He also gave me very simple exercises to help me prevent future back troubles. He and his staff are so friendly, encouraging, and professional. I am sad to have moved away but so thankful for my experience there."

"Before coming to Swiss Chiropractic Clinic I had been waking up in the night with back pain for a year. I was pretty skeptical about this pain ever going away, but my wife encouraged me to try Swiss Chiropractic. Amazingly, after only 3 weeks my pain was almost completely gone. It has been 3 months now, and I am sleeping better than I have in a year. All I did was the treatments with Dr. Dubois and the core strengthening exercises that were prescribed along with Swiss Chiropractic. I have to say I'm pretty amazed. And the staff is extremely friendly. This is a small family business and it is an amazingly warm and encouraging place to come. Plus with insurance it was only $9 per visit which is pretty unbelievable. Even full price it's only $55 a visit. Definitely worth checking out if you have chronic back pain or other kinds of joint pain."
- Brian C.
"Dr. DuBois is the best chiropractor I have ever had! He has helped me achieve and maintain back health and has helped me work through a number of sports related injuries. I would highly recommend his services!!"

"I've dealt with spinal problems for over fifty years. I have been seen by neurologists at Mass General, and had a spinal fusion done by a spine surgeon who. despite dealing with many 'failed backs' (the consequences of other surgeons' mistakes) had some of the best success rates in the US. I've been in the care of other very good physicians, and one of them referred me to Dr. Dubois. None of the other physicians has been more thorough than Dr. Dubois in initial physical exam. What is perhaps most impressive is his ability accurately to predict the effects of this treatments. He is nonetheless a very modest person, utterly professional in his manner, yet also warm. His office staff is friendly and efficient."
- Cadmon E.
"I have seen Dr. DuBois for several back issues, over the years,
and he has also treated my husband and our kids. Treatment with Dr.
DuBois has been very effective, and less lengthy than treatment for
some similar problems with another chiropractor some years ago.
He is very attentive, thorough, and knowledgeable. Although he has chosen to limit his practice to chiropractic care in this country, Dr. DuBois has an M.D. from his native land of Switzerland. Thus he brings a superior knowledge base to his current practice.
Dr. DuBois is very pleasant and patient, and his office staff are professional, accommodating, and very friendly.
I really could not ask for better care!"
- Jodie R.
"Dr. DuBois is wonderful. He listens and provides informed solutions. My wife and I have benefited from the experience and knowledge of Dr. DuBois. The office staff is great and we 45 minutes for the expertise of Dr. DuBois."
- Brian K.
"Dr. DuBois is very thorough and a very good listener. Because he has so much more knowledge of the body, he does not hesitate to send a patient to another specialist if he thinks it is appropriate. The staff is all very helpful. I wish I could clone him 500 times. He is the kind of medical Dr. we need more of."
