"Dr. Alan Nathans is the first chiropractor I ever went to. My mother had negative experiences with other chiropractors in the past, so I was very skeptical and nervous at first. But I've been battling lower back pain since college after years of carrying drums in the marching band. I felt I had to give it a shot.
I immediately began to feel more comfortable when Dr. Nathans sat down and talked with me before making any adjustments. This is the kind of experience many people seek. They'd rather their doctor sit down and get to know them personally before performing any sort of procedure. Dr. Nathans ran some preliminary tests and talked with me about my back pain. He then told me what he believes would be the best form of treatment and why.
My first adjustment was an actual life-changing experience. My trepidation soon turned to astonishment when I realized that my neck actually felt better within a few minutes of my first adjustment. I finally wasn't taking someone else's word that he can help....I experienced it.
The massage therapists who work for Dr. Nathans are nothing short of fantastic. They don't give you the typical massage. They find the weakest areas and work on them gradually. These took a few visits to get used to because they're more intense massages than I was used to, but I started to notice my back loosening up after a few weeks.
I've known Dr. Nathans for over a year now. I've seen how he works. I believe he really cares about his patients. He talks to them with respect. He remembers their concerns. And he seems genuinely happy to be helping. My recommendation to anyone thinking about going to a chiropractor in Jacksonville is this: give Dr. Nathans a chance."
"We could write a book about how much Dr. Nathans has changed our lives for the better. He is a remarkable doctor who loves the Lord, and truly cares about you as a person. Our entire family goes to Dr. Nathans even our 3 sons who are 7,2, and 1. Our 7 year old son Skyler was diagnosed on the Autism spectrum, when he was 5 years old. He was not speaking very well, he had 25 ear infections from ages 3-5, and also had digestion and GI issues that required hospital visits due to blockages. We were referred to Dr. Nathans by our pediatrician several times, and I honestly balked at the idea of going to a chiropractor especially for my children. I believed in Chiropractic and had been to one before, but for my kids I wasn't so sure. Well, I could not have been more wrong, this is where we needed to be, all of us. Dr. Nathans personally took the time with Sky, he was able to take X-rays to make more precise adjustments. Since we have been seeing Dr Nathans for over a year, Sky is speaking in full sentences and also not repeating things over and over, he also has had ZERO ear infection or digestion issues. There have been times that we have needed him after his hours as an emergency and he was available for advice or even coming to his office to put our 2 year olds shoulder back in socket. If the boys have any ailment they ask to go see Dr Nathans, and believe that he can fix them. He means the world to us, and has honestly done so many things I could go on and on. The whole office is a family atmosphere, and a wonderful experience."
