Dr. Blakely explains my x-rays and what to do which I told him I feel good after my treatment and the TENS is relaxing I also look forward to each visit as long as my insurance continues to cover it. I would also like to try acupuncture if you can recommend one there.

Thank you for follow-up. I am very, very disappointed. The scheduled appointment was for a doctor consultation about pains I was having in my back and neck. After signing in and making the co-payment, I was directed to doctor's waiting room. This is what happened: After the introduction, the doctor asked me to point out the area where I was having pain. I pointed to the neck and shoulder area. It was the only area giving me much of a a problem at that particular time. I did mention the lower lumbar region where I had surgery, the sciatic nerve area and tight muscles give me issues from time to time. Then he said he could not help me. The reason had to do with the paperwork specified that the lower back as the area of concern. That is not a real consultation. I did not get anything useful form that visit and expect to be refunded the co-payment.

I really love the service of this doctor because he paid attention to me. He was not rushing me, ax previous doctors I had before. I just had an appointment last week with a neurologist and he just wanted to kick me out, and it was so uncomfortable. I can't wait to put feedback on that Dr. But this doctor was so great. I really enjoyed it. Even with the first session. I'm already feeling better, and I'm very thankful for that.

Dr. Blakely always treats my problems I couldn't ask for a better chiropractor.
February 18, 2022
There's noting, excuse me. Dr. Blakely is a great doctor, and he always helps me out and very cordial and outgoing, same way, with the staff. And they always make sure that I'm feeling well and I'm doing well, and always talk to me. And, and so he's a 1 top of the line doctor to me. Bye.

Location of office is located in the middle of a shopping center (Downey Promenade). It feels a bit awkward to walk into the building for medical care.

This was my first experience with a chiropractor, so I was very nervous. Dr. Blakely and his staff made me feel safe and secure. Overall it was a very positive experience, which made me very happy!

My Son went in to see a Chiropractor, Nothing was done. He gave him a paper for YOGA stretches. He made comments about a separate issue that he noticed but did nothing to help it. I felt it was a Money scheme and a huge waste of time. All he did was read the Xray report that we rec'd in the mail.

It was my first visit so now I'm Waiting for my insurance to approve for more visits soon.
