Doctor Thompson Dr. (T) is awesome funny as all can be, super knowledgeable too. Dr. T changed my life for my back. She’s so nice and totally not the stereo type chiropractor. You want a nice, funny, caring, honest chiropractor this is it. Shout out to Maria at the front desk always very patient and so helpful. They all are just so pleasant there.

Dr. G is the best. It’s been so hard finding a great doctor out here, moving from LA and having had great care out there. Dr. G has been such a great find. My back is feeling better than ever and it’s all thanks to his care and expertise. Highly recommend his care.

Stay away from Dr. Goldstein in this clinic!!! I had never had a chiropractic treatment before, but I was told that the chiropractic treatment could be helpful for my stiff neck. As a patient with a herniated disc, however, I was not certain that the chiropractic treatment is safe. Before I started to get the treatment there, I asked Dr. Goldstein several times if the treatment is safe to make sure that I would not get hurt. He kept assuring that it was completely harmless and I had nothing to worry about. However, after getting treatment, I started to have some pains and it got worse over time. In the end, I ended up going to an ER due to the pain and weakness in both my arms and legs. Since then, I have seen orthopedic surgeons and neurologists and all of them told me that I should have not taken this treatment because it could be harmful. When I addressed this issue to Dr. Goldstein, he suddenly changed his word saying that the prognosis is very unpredictable in principle and I need to take care of the pain. It was clear that he knew this possibility from the beginning, but he just conveniently ignored when I asked. I have never had this kind of symptoms before, and I have been still dealing with this disaster for about a year. I wish I was wise enough to ignore Dr. Goldstein's false and irresponsible advice.... Just stay away from him if you do not want to get hurt!

Dr. Hedrick is a magic man. 5 stars, words, nothing can accurately depict his skill and knowledge. Anyone I meet or know has had me recommend him to them. I wouldn’t be surprised if I started walking up to strangers to tell them about him. Anyone whose taken the recommendation and gone to see him has verified that he is indeed magic. Stop reading this and book an appointment already.

I've had headaches for years now, and I always thought it was normal. I would frequently get headaches every week, and it was just a huge bother. I read online somewhere that chiropractors help with headaches since it relieves tension in your spine and neck, so I decided to follow through with it. I've been seeing Dr. Sharaine Thompson every week or two for about 2 months now, and I haven't had any killer headaches! My doctor said it was from stress (I'm a student at UCSD) and immobility since I sit at a desk all the time doing work. I honestly leave feeling better every time, and I'm really happy I made the right choice.
