The day I first mentioned moving from sunny California to Alaska to start a physical medicine practice, my wife thought I had gone mad. But the draw to Alaska was strong. Just as strong as our desire to create a practice that was the exact opposite of my own personal experience in a doctor’s waiting room, where I was greeted by gruff employees and waited for an hour before seeing a doctor who didn’t appear to hear – or care about – anything I said.
That experience lit my desire to create a practice that would be completely centered on the patient. A place that was comfortable, where we would offer care that was convenient, personalized, effective and a good value. I wanted our patients to trust us, and believe we were truly committed to their care. But most of all, I wanted them to feel hope. Hope that transformation was possible, and that they would experience real relief, long-lasting results, and an improved quality of life.
Although we are committed to ongoing growth and improvement, I believe we have accomplished what we originally set out to do. We have created a multi-disciplinary clinic, where we utilize a team approach to provide a full range of effective, conservative treatments, including chiropractic care, rehabilitative therapy and massage therapy, as well as other complementary therapies.
We strive to be an innovative clinic by being Anchorage, Alaska’s exclusive provider of advanced treatments, such as the Decompression Reduction Stabilization (DRS) therapy for low back pain. We offer same day appointments, 10-minute wait guarantee and a first visit guarantee. We offer our patients research-based wellness education programs to help them understand and care for their bodies better. When needed, we provide quick, easy, appropriate referrals to specialists outside our own areas of expertise.
But most importantly, we have made real differences in the lives of thousands of Alaskans, who have successfully addressed their pain and spine-related conditions without addictive drugs or invasive surgeries. I invite you to read some of our success stories – I hope you find them as exciting and inspiring as I do.
