Dr. B is a lifesaver!

I've seen him several times & he's always been very helpful. I recently endured a neck injury from surfing and he just adjusted me, I feel so much better! My neck has been swollen for three days and today is the first day it's starting to feel normal again (after seeing Dr. B)!

He always explains the adjustment very well before adjusting me, which is nice because I've had anxiety seeing doctors before. He makes me feel comfortable and safe. I always leave his office feeling better than when I came in.

Dr B is great!!!

Got me living again without pain. He actually explains what is going on with your bio-mechanics that is causing the troubles and then gave me stretches to help with the pain and the fixing of the problem. Doesn't get too rough when your still susceptible to more injury, so I really appreciated that. Super friendly! Open late too, which helps the working people.

Back hurt for several months… until I went to Dr. B.

First off, I'm a big believer that there are good chiropractors... and then there are bad bad bad chiropractors.

Several years ago I injured my back–fell onto the concrete with my spine twisted.

Then I went to Dr. B.

Within 2-3 weeks my back felt completely better. Absolutely fantastic work.

Also! My girlfriend had horrible TMJ and she went here to help out with headaches, jaw pain, etc. She too also improved tremendously.

Atmosphere is pretty casual. When I used to go here he accepted walk in clients, etc.

Until now, I could not find a good chiropractor on the Central Coast…

This doctor was friendly, made me laugh, and did a thorough and competent first exam. Got me in for an appointment after work the same day I called, nice!

Very casual atmosphere, so if you like sterile doctor's offices, this may not be the place for you. A sweet doggy greeted me and put her head on my knee...and he leaves the exam door open so you can hear who walks in etc. No ego present, which I prefer.

Dr. B is kind, funny, and tells awesome stories.

My boyfriend and I both go to Dr. B anytime we tweak or injure ourselves.  My boyfriend is very athletic and needs semi-regular adjustments for muscle pulls and misalignment. I've been going to chiropractors my whole life and Dr. B is absolutely one of the best.  Every time we leave his office we feel noticeably better-like our bodies feel the way they should.  He also does amazing deep-tissue massage.

He often has his dog Jade with him who will give you lots of love the second you walk through the door.  I'll never go to anyone else. Highly recommend!

Dr. B is by far the best Chiropractor I’ve ever seen.

His expert knowledge, enthusiasm, good nature and genuine concern for all his patients really sets him apart. Not the kind of Chiro who keeps you coming back week after week with no end in sight. Dr. B has an almost uncanny ability to help you find the cause of your issues. After treating your problem, you can rely on Dr. B to help educate you to prevent its reoccurrence, whether by adjusting your bad habits or by teaching you stretches and exercises to keep you in good form.

Dr. B is such a great guy.  He’s very thoughtful and careful.  

I've been a client of his since 2013.  He has a nice dog that wanders about.  He's willing to take last minute appointments and he takes credit cards.  He also doesn't make you feel guilty if you don't see him all the time, which has been my experience with chiropractors beforehand

I was able to get in just hours after I called.

Brian did a great adjustment for my first-time visit and showed a lot of knowledge and care. Feeling much better now.

Has great pricing, but you don’t get any less care for the price.

Great Chiropractor, does a very thorough exam and adjustment.

There is a reason this guy is rated the best chiropractor in SLO!!

Dr. B is the best!  This was, in fact, my first time visiting a chiropractor but I felt instantly at ease in his care. He has a wonderful, calming approach; he walked me through everything that he would be doing and explained the reason he was performing certain adjustments for me. And having the loving, friendly presence of his adorable dog, Jade, doesn't hurt either! Dr. B has reshaped my sleeping habits and given me great insight so that I can avoid future flare-ups of my torticollis condition. I'm so grateful that I've found Dr. B to help me and I would recommend him to anyone in

Dr. B is extremely knowledgeable in his practice but equally intuitive.

I am so grateful for the help he has given me! My energy has increased, stress reduced, and I am able to get back into all the fitness activities that I love. Thanks so much, Dr. B! You truly became a chiropractor to HELP people because you CARE. You just want to see us all well. 🙂 Everyone should stop by for an adjustment, you'll be thankful you did!

Dr. B has done it again!

Internet, remind me that when my shoulder starts hurting (no matter what I think the issue is) to go see Dr. B. He's amazing. My shoulder feels worlds better, I have more mobility and range of motion back after months of pain and frozen shoulder.

Dr. B loves his job and puts his all into helping every person who comes through his door (he takes walk-ins too!) He's been helping me with my neck and back pain, and I can already see improvements! He is such a compassionate and caring man, and I feel I've placed my back in good hands 🙂

Wow, every day I see little miracles come from little adjustments of the spine and extremities.

I know many of you know what I’m talking about!

Later – Dr. B

 

 

Greetings and welcome to the Dr. B show and today we need healing and good vibrations.

It’s time for a tune-up and a new fitness goal for winter! So start early if you can cause it is DARK early. Turn the TV off a little EARLY and get up and out before work if you can it will make the WHOLE day better.
