Doctor of Chiropractic, Fellow of the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association
Dr. Debra Cirone

Co-founder and Co-owner of
Sugar Hill Spine & Wellness and
New Path Holistic Health

Dr. Cirone comes from a large family of Chiropractors. Having been adjusted since birth, she had experienced, first hand Chiropractic’s ability to enable the body to heal naturally, without the use of drugs and surgery. This led her to chase her own dreams of becoming a chiropractor herself. Dr. Cirone met the man who would become her husband in high school and they both graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1998. Dr. Cirone soon followed her doctorate with a Fellowship with the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association. Following an overwhelming prompt from God, they ended up setting up their practice, against all odds, in the wonderful town of Sugar Hill, GA in 1999, where they have a consistently thriving family practice.

“The answer to health does not come from treating symptoms with potions and pills from your medicine cabinet.”

A note from Dr. Cirone:

“If you’ve never tried chiropractic or have had a less than desirable experience with chiropractic I challenge you to give our office a try and see finally, that the answer to health does not come from treating symptoms with potions and pills from your medicine cabinet. Health comes from within and chiropractic can help you to restore it the life and health that you and your family have been missing out on.”
