I have created this account solely to review Dr. Jim Lay. I feel so grateful to him for his excellent care, affordable pricing and kindness that I feel the least I can do is tell people about how awesome he and his staff are.
The staff are all really nice and will answer all of your questions and explain the whole process to you. And unlike other offices, they can try and fit you in on the same day you call.
It's clear Dr. Lay really cares about helping people and they are willing to work with you on price. For an impoverished student, that's really important. Despite my bad back, I wasn't sure I could afford chiropractic care since my insurance won't cover it. I can't tell you how much better my back feels.
First, if you tell Dr. Lay that you hurt your back a year ago and didn't really do anything about it, he will give you a blank stare that conveys his patience, disappointment and makes you feel like an idiot. Apparently after suffering a mild back injury you shouldn't ignore it until it becomes debilitating. You can tell that curing back pain is really important to him, after all he's made it his career.
Second, I learned that any level of dehydration contributes to back pain on my first visit. Drink up! I'm chronically dehydrated and it has not helped my back. This is an easy, cheap way to help yourself even before you see Dr. Lay.
Third, this hardly needs to be mentioned but follow all the instructions Dr. Lay and his staff give you. He's spending his time to fix your back and you are spending money.
Dr. Lay and his staff are amazing!
