I recently moved and needed to establish with a new chiropractor. John and Mike are happy to accept new patients. They listen to you and treat you based on your needs. How refreshing to find a dynamic duo who personalize your care!
Dr. John Rotundo, practicing since 1994, and Dr. Michael Gazaleh, practicing since 2000, have successfully treated thousands of Hoboken/Jersey City residents since establishing Hudson Family Chiropractic in Hoboken in 2000. They incorporate exercise, stretching, trigger point massage, physiotherapy, and gentle chiropractic manipulation into the overall treatment protocol. They often can be found in the office before and after scheduled office hours. Dr. Rotundo and Dr. Gazaleh are both Hoboken residents.
The chiropractors do not use “cookie cutter” treatment plans. Each patient is treated according to his or her condition. Some patients require more extensive therapy while other patients require only a few visits. You will only receive the treatment needed and once your pain has dissipated, you will be released from care and advised to return only when needed.
Our physical therapist, Sejal Mair, PT, has extensive experience in treating a wide variety of patients with orthopedic and neurological conditions.
Sejal will use techniques that are designed to address a specific functional need of each patient. These dynamic activities must be part of an active treatment plan and be directed at a specific outcome. Please see our Physical Therapy page for more details about therapy and rehabilitation techniques and specific conditions that can be treated.
Meet Dr. John Rotundo
At the age of 17, after many positive experiences with chiropractic, Dr. Rotundo knew his career path. He graduated from the University of Bridgeport, Magna Cum Laude, as a Dana Scholar. He then attended New York Chiropractic College and graduated with a Doctorate of Chiropractic in 1994.
He began practicing immediately after graduation. Prior to opening HFC in 2000, Dr. Rotundo had five years experience in a multidisciplinary office where he worked in unison with medical doctors on a daily basis (orthopedists, neurologists, physiatrists, internists, osteopaths, and general practitioners).
While Dr. Rotundo feels strongly about his chosen profession and applies chiropractic care as needed, he is very comfortable referring his patients to the appropriate medical doctor if co-treatment is necessary.
Meet Dr. Michael Gazaleh
Michael Gazaleh graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in February of 2000. Following graduation, he was fortunate enough to find educational opportunities, associating himself with exceptional doctors in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York City.
With a strong understanding of the muscular system in active athletes, he opened his own practice in Manhattan in 2004. While enjoying practicing chiropractics, Michael continues to be very active himself. In June 2005 he started City Running Tours, which offers guided running tours of some of the great cities in the United States. Dr. Gazaleh joined HFC in early 2008.

Dr. Jackee Shu DAc., L.Ac.
Dr Jackee Shu DAc., L.Ac., is a licensed acupuncturist in New Jersey and New York, and board-certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. She received her Doctor of Acupuncture from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York.
Being diagnosed with several medical conditions while sick during a 20-year stint in corporate finance led her on a holistic healing journey.
“I chose conscious eating, acupuncture, herbal formula, cupping + moxabustion as part of daily living over the conventional protocol of life-long medication for the diagnosis rendered.
The added bonus of these changes was that, for the first time in 15 years, I walked through Central Park in the middle of Spring, breathing through my nose, my eyes clear, fully appreciating the scent of this urban forest, medication free.
Grateful + curious, I became a Doctor of Acupuncture at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine while a full-time corporate professional. The curriculum consisted of over 3,000 hours of training in Traditional Chinese Medicine with heavy emphasis on biosciences in biology, chemistry, pharmacology, ortho-neuro evaluation, anatomy, pathophysiology, gynecology, dermatology, and psychology. “
Doc John sets the tone for a great experience at Hudson Family Chiropractic and truly adds the “family” feel to the office. As someone who has been a proponent of chiropractic for the past twenty years, I have had the good fortune of seeing Doc John and Dr. Mike for nearly a decade. I maintain a very active physical regimen with sports and excercise playing a part of my entire week. There is no doubt that John and Mike’s efforts allow me to go that much harder throughout the week. Their practice features wonderful, professional and friendly folks and I enjoy seeing them each time I can. I fully recommend Hudson Family Chiropractic to those that need relief from strains, sprains or tweaks. Kudos to their team and thank you!
I was nervous about going to a chiropractor since I’d never gone to one, but I tweaked a muscle in my lower back and needed help. My personal trainer recommended Dr. John Rotundo at Hudson Family Chiropractic and I’m SO GLAD I went. He explained everything he was going to do and look for, answered all of my questions, and had me feeling better after my first visit. I only needed 3 visits over the course of 2 weeks and I’m feeling 100% better and can get back to the gym! I highly recommend paying Dr. Rotundo a visit if you’re looking for a good chiropractor in the area. Super friendly, easy to get to, and easy to get an appointment.
I’ve been coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic for almost 3 years now. I’ve suffered from neck and bulged disc pain for years before coming here. I also used to suffer from headaches every day; however, Dr. John and Dr. Mike are miracle workers. I now barely get headaches anymore and my neck pain has eased drastically. I now have a quality of life without the pain and suffering I had before coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic. Thank you so much!
John saved me from horrible, daily headaches that I was suffering from for 3+ months. I am pretty tolerant to pain but they were bad enough for me to take multiple painkillers with not much effect. I had signed up for pain management doc and the appointment was months away and I figured I’d come back to John who I saw a couple of times before for another issue with my shoulder. After literally 2 visits, I was managing without painkillers and with maintenance sessions, headaches are practically gone. He *always* has a warm smile and encouraging words, I am so grateful to have found someone whose expertise I trust and who I genuinely enjoy seeing. I’ve sent my mom and my brother to him! And if he can’t do much for your issue – he will tell you straight up. Outstanding!
John is wonderful! I have been going to chiropractors since I was young do to a back injury. John is the first chiropractor to address my problem areas with complete confidence and professionalism. Every time I leave this office I think why did I wait so long! Definitely getting on a regular monthly appointment!
I am a longtime patient of John and Mike and found their services to be professional, proficient, and effective. I can always count on getting an appointment in a reasonable time and getting in and out is fast. But recently, I needed the attention of a Physical Therapist, and that’s when they referred me to their therapist, Nicole.
My first meeting with Nicole was extremely pleasant and I was quickly impressed with her knowledge in her profession. She made me feel comfortable and she explained what was causing my pain and what her course of action would be. Within a few days, the pain had almost disappeared and I started for feel great. She continued to work with me and again, the appointments were around my schedule and we got to work and I was out the door never feeling rushed.
I want to personally thank the staff at Hudson Family Chiropractic, John and Mike for the work that they do and also Nicole for her skills in getting me back on my NEW bicycle.
Great job Guys.
I m professional ballroom dancer, so I had awful pain in my lower back when I came here first time. Now, after 3 month I feel much better.
I have been going to Mike and John for the past 3+ years and they are hands down the best chiropractors that I have ever been to. It started out with a neck injury and I had a 1/2 marathon race the week after. After a few visits, they were able to help me and I ended up PRing that race. I continue to go to them for tune ups and also when I’m preparing for a race. Also, they are both very personable and easy to talk to!
Hudson Family Chiropractic was my place for treatment when I lived in Hoboken for several years. Dr. Mike & Dr. John are both fantastic, easy going and great at what they do. Dr. Mike, who usually treated me, always listened and answered any questions that I had. He also treated me throughout my pregnancy, which was great. Everyone there is welcoming and friendly. I moved to the suburbs right before I had my son and I really miss these guys a lot. A wonderful family office. Highly recommend!!
