I've been a pt of Dr. Wolff's practically since he started, in 1999. I found these reviews when I was looking for a website listing their hours, and ... man, what an eye opener!
I imagine his aggressive recruiting tactics weren't all in place when I started, and I've basically ignored them. There was a brief pt education session, and I don't remember it being too over-the-top. Perhaps that's changed. Some of his information and jargon seems almost cult-like in tone, but then I also feel that way about Trader Joe's. I just get my treatment and leave — and hold on to my own beliefs. His adjustments help my migraines. Personally, I don't believe they do much more than that (though he'd beg to differ).
There were lots of visits/adjustments in the beginning, and I was in worse pain for a while, but just like he said, it went away. Now I check in now and then, or when I've been having migraines. He adjusts me, and I'm better.
About the Chiropractic Assn charges: He's certainly a schmoozer, but no more than that in my experience. I don't find it offensive. The billing irregularities I leave to my insurance company. A few times things have come back as ""already billed,"" but I assumed it was oversight, not wrongdoing.
I will look at his practice with different eyes after reading these reviews, but my treatment at Vitality has been nothing but decent, appropriate, and effective. Don't believe the hype, and you'll be fine.
Pros: Cured my migraines
Cons: Cult-like jargon
