I had the best first time experience going to a chiropractor in a Covid safe environment. Everyone is welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. Ian was great! He really can crack your back. ? I walked in tense, stiff, sore, and not knowing how to move my body. They taught me how to overcome all of that. Most of the exercises I do with my 5th grade students at work. Communication with Kaizo staff has been super easy with their text system. I get a reminder. If I can’t make it I just text make and they told me my options. I’ll be back for regular maintenance. Thanks!
– D. Lynette Walker
Had such a great experience at Kaizo! Dr. Schapiro and Gilmore were very kind, and the CA’s take the best care of you as well. This was my first time at a PT/Chiro practice and they made it incredibly comfortable. Appreciate it, Kaizo!
