Dr. Michael Abromovitz
In February 2014, I presented to this practice with complex symptoms (systemic and inflammatory in nature, which was unbeknownst to even myself at the time), which can be difficult for practitioners to validate, assess, and treat. I had begun to experience agonizing and debilitating acute pain in my back and shoulders, widespread muscle spasms, numbness and tingling down both arms/legs, difficulty sensing controlled movements of my right leg, and right arm weakness). I was immediately unable to work and initiated my short-term disability benefits and I knew that intensive treatment would soon be underway (fully aware that this was, by far, the most severe exacerbation of pain I have yet experienced). I was desperate for help after being turned down by the emergency room and another [highly recommended] chiropractor. I have a life-long history of significant physical traumas and injuries (one even as a pedestrian in a motor vehicle accident, requiring several weeks of assisted recovery) and participation in competitive sports with related injuries.
Even at my young age of 32, I have had almost two decades of persistent musculoskeletal and soft tissue problems, including instability, injury, and pain. I have seen many physicians and participated in many alternative treatment modalities. In summary, treatment solutions are never simple for me and finding physicians who are both empathetic and skilled can be a gamble. With there being a chiropractor on nearly every corner these days and as a medical professional with the above issues, I was hesitant to extend trust to any random chiropractor. However, due to the need for immediate assistance and pain relief, I was left only with the choice of those who could see me the same day, if not the same MORNING, rather than the luxury of careful research and selection. During the initial visit, Dr. "Mike" (Abromovitz) and his team treated me with patience and kindness and without hesitation. Dr. Mike asked several questions and took the time to demonstrate to me that he was actively listening to and participating in our conversation. He prescribed different interventions with my review and modified them as needed. I felt secure in seeing that he communicates regularly and in detail with the rest of his staff.
Dr. Mike referred me to an excellent internal medicine physician and ordered an MRI that turned out to be essential in identifying my core problem, ultimately facilitating the forward and timely treatment of other physicians. This was AFTER I had seen two spinal physicians (at two separate practices). They both were able to inform me that my problem involved more than just my spine, but did not offer anything more than physical therapy and injections. I am so grateful for his willingness to listen effectively, take action on my behalf, talk to insurance companies as needed, and for feeling that he actually took me seriously and validating my pain when I felt others were not. Dr. Mike and his staff have helped me make sense of my chronic and complex issues, giving me the confidence to sustain my short-term disability and interact with other physicians for further assessment and treatment. Their text-reminders for upcoming appointments and superior communication regarding scheduling has helped to keep me organized amidst my *MANY* other appointments. They have been very easy to work with and flexible when I needed to change appointment times due to illness, severe pain, or conflicts with other scheduled doctor appointments. They were also 100% accommodating during the days I had no option but to bring my 6 year-old son. In addition to the chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and other treatments, his office has three massage therapists so scheduling a brief (30 minute) lunch hour or full length massage (60 minute) session has been convenient from day one. I have visited this office several times and, due to my condition, have also consulted with several medical practitioners (including a primary physician, internal medicine physician, neurologist, orthopedist, pain management/spinal doctors, a naturopathic physician, and physical therapists).
All of the above are fully aware of my treatment with Dr. Mike and support his modalities, considering them a necessary part of the treatment plan toward my recovery. Here I am, 13 weeks later, making a great deal of progress as I continue to utilize treatments and excellent massage therapists at Gilbert Chiropractic and Acupuncture to provide ongoing pain relief and increased mobility in both my torso and shoulder (adjunct to my physical therapy treatments). Both Dr. Mike and his office staff have been incredibly supportive through this difficulty journey of intense pain and questionable economic security (as I have been unable to work in my present job position since the onset of this pain). I truly appreciate the positive impact their actions have had in my recent life experiences. Even my quiet, introverted self has found it comfortable to discuss my ailments and difficulties, feeling validated, with this practice. I was fortunate to encounter them during my "lottery" selection of next-available chiropractors. (Written with sincerity by a grateful patient)
January 07, 2013 They offer an amazing service to those suffering back pain. It was easy to get a same day appointment as well, very flexible scheduling. December 27, 2012
Seems like a professionally run helping center. Dr Mike and the massage therapist were very good. The person answering the phone needs to slow down so you can understand what she is saying and who she is and what the name of the business is when answering.

Great place. They walked me thru the process and what it would do and also what would happen at future visits. After one visit I feel extra movement in my neck already. Looking forward to the next time. I highly reccommend getting the massage with it.

I was unfamiliar with the decompression procedure prior to recieving the offer from Groupon, but am impressed with the procedure and this facility. Will continue treatments here even after my four prepaid treatments are completed. Dr Mike even sent me home with information to research for my symptoms. Thank you!
