MEET THE TEAM
Dr. Marco Accordo
Courtney is a natural healer. She knew early on that her life’s work needed to be in healthcare, and after exploring many different healing arts was enchanted by the practice of Acupuncture. “There are a lot of things that just can’t be explained by the Western medical model, but in Traditional Chinese Medicine, those things make complete sense. For me the study of Acupuncture was life changing.” Courtney graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine with her Masters degree and a love for her practice.
She is married to Dr. Marco and spends most of her time at home with their children; twin sons, Ari and Nico, and daughter, Ana.

"I started seeing a Chiropractor at the age of 21 when I started experiencing uncomfortable lower back pain once I stopped competing as a gymnast. I only went "as needed" on and off for several years in many different states. In, 2014, I was involved in a very serious head-on car accident which caused severe whiplash at C6-7, 2 herniated discs at L4-5 and a torn rotator cuff. I was referred to Rosemont Chiropractic by a coworker and was placed in Dr. Marco's care. The level of care that Dr. Marco provided me allowed me to continue to pursue my passion and career as a Massage Therapist. After being a patient for 2 years, Dr. Marco asked me to be his Massage Therapist at his new practice, Accordo Chiropractic. I love every minute of being able to be apart of this amazing team!"
"I first came to Accordo Chiropractic because I was having pain in my neck. Once in the office I was caught off guard by how INCREDIBLY pleasant and friendly everybody was. During my new patient exam Dr. Marco treated me like a human, listening and explaining things every step of the way. I was so impressed that Dr. Marco really strived to find out all the information he could that could be contributing to my pain and how we were going to correct it. After the first few adjustments my neck pain was gone and I could already tell how much better my body was feeling and functioning due to chiropractic care. This feeling continues today!
Little did I know that my story as a patient was going to lead to a career with Accordo Chiropractic. I really couldn’t be more grateful to have found this practice, this job, and this new chapter of my life and I look forward to a long successful career with Accordo Chiropractic touching as many patients’ lives as we can."

"My holistic wellness and chiropractic story began in 2015. I was experiencing unexplained numbness and tingling in my arm and face. Several docs ran test all to no avail, no one had answers or solutions. I was told if I came back for the same problem I would need to be seen by a psychiatrist. I felt defeated. With nothing left to lose a very good friend suggested I give chiropractic a try - I'm so thankful for that friend. Better everyday thanks to the care of Dr. Marco and his team, I haven't looked back since!
As a patient I loved Accordo Chiropractic, the team was always so warm and welcoming and I was so thankful for the healing the care brought me. So when an opportunity opened up to be a part of that I had to jump on it! What I love most about this job is seeing the changes in patients on a day to day basis and being surrounded by people who encourage me to be the best version of myself."
A Louisiana native and a military transplant to the Hampton Roads area, Kacey loves her husband, their four dogs and enjoys running and gardening.
"My Chiropractic journey began in 2019. I had been dealing with migraines as well as widespread, all over body pain for as long as I can remember. After trying multiple rounds of physical therapy, dry needling, steroid injections, even surgeries with little to no relief, I decided to give chiropractic a try. I could hardly believe it but within the first few adjustments, I started feeling like a completely different person! Not only is my pain reduced but my migraines are virtually gone too! I’m also sleeping better at night as well as feeling happier and less anxious every day! My favorite part about working at Accordo Chiropractic is seeing both physical improvements and mental growth in our patients. I love helping people feel better about themselves."
