Dr. Nick has saved me so many times!! I've been coming to Surfside since 2013 when I was pregnant with my third child. He delivered excellent prenatal care it it made all the difference in my delivery. He's also a great sports chiropractor and has helped me through many a surf, snowboard, maybe a bit too intense backyard renovation, injuries. He's super affordable, efficient and recommends great wholistic ways to help heal yourself. There's no billion dollar follow up plans or schemes - he's very transparent, has great vibes and really cares about your well-being. I love this place!! (I've also had my kids treated here and highly recommend.)

I was looking for a chiropractor that uses what’s called the activator method. Dr. Baiata is that Dr. Located at Surfside Chiropratic on Atlantic Blvd. You enter his office to peaceful paintings all around to make you relax. His Receptionist Cassie is very kind with her sweet smile and accommodating to appointment times. His knowledge in pain management is just what I was looking for. My pain is easing and I’m feeling so much better. Highly recommended.

I have been seeing Dr. Baiata since 2017 and found him to be very compassionate. He listens to effectively diagnose and treat your symptoms and also suggests what could be helpful in between office visits. My back and neck pain has diminished drastically due to his care. I have recommended Dr Baiata to family and friends and will continue too.

I’ve been going to Dr Nick since relocating to Jax Beach in 2018. He is an excellent chiropractor. I’m in my 70’s and have chronic back problems. He keeps me pain free and upright lol. I highly recommend him.

My husband, Steve, and I have been going to Dr. Baiata for the last year. We have been going to chiropractors for neck and back issues for many years. Dr. Baiata is the first chiropractor who has been able to resolve my aches and pains. He is very gentle, professional, and has an amazing skill of locating the exact spot that hurts. He's very thorough and knowledgeable. We highly recommend Dr. Baiata and Surfside Chiropractic.

I've never been to a chiropractor before and had an adjustment so this was a new experience. Dr. Nick was lovely, and gave me some very good advice on how to incorporate a new yoga practice into my life with my scoliosis. My friend referred him and I am so glad that she did! I'll be back for sure!

I've been under chiropractic care for over 15 years but I've never experienced the compassion and dedication that I currently receive from Dr. Nick Baiata. No matter the circumstances, his office gets me in without hesitation. Even on the weekends. His intuitive care makes me able to live my life pain free. The treatments I've received over the last 2 years far surpasses anyone in Jacksonville/ beaches area. Our family could not be more grateful. Thank you Surfside Chiropractic!

I have had several treatments at Surfside and each time I am more impressed with Dr. B. While I don't suffer from chronic back pain, I do have aches and twinges that can be bothersome. Dr. Baiata gently but thoroughly works out all the kinks and I feel fantastic after a treatment. My latest treatment was just before a 3 hour flight. Note to Self: ALWAYS get an adjustment before flying. That treatment made my flight so much more comfortable. Bottom line is when it comes to getting straightened out, Dr. Baiata is the best

Dr. Baiata is an incredible Chiropractor. I've had neck and shoulder issues for years and worked with several Chiropractors before being recommended to Dr. Baiata. He is an incredible listener and very intuitive, able to quickly pinpoint misalignment. On various occasions, in only one session he was able alleviate pain and return mobility to my neck! In subsequent sessions he ensures overall alignment and long lasting results. There were two cases where Dr. Baiata took time out of his personal schedule to perform emergency adjustments that saved me elongated strain. He truly cares for his patients. I can't thank him enough for his reliable healing. He comes highly recommended.
