Meet the Doctors

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.

Dr. John Rotundo

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.
