I didn't get it a first, why all the fuss? These guys have a bunch of great reviews. So I went to another chiropractor first (that shall remain nameless). The did okay, he seemed like he knew what he was doing. But, I wasn't getting better. Then I went to Core. Big difference right away. They greeted me, told me what was going to happen, then I saw the doctor. Dr. Natalie Cordova is who I saw and she really explained everything and then did the adjustment. Since I had just got x-rays they didn't make me take more, which was cool. I get it now. This is a nice office.
I have been suffering for neck pain for more than 4 years now. I first noticed the pain was after a weigh lift work out, and just though that I might have pulled a muscle. The pain went away after a few days rest. From then on the same pain from the lower side of my neck kept appearing every 3 or 4 months. My doctor took an x-ray and prescribed celebrex for the inflammation. I will confess that I never took it. This was in 2008 when celebrex was all over the news and lawsuits. Then, the headaches started. Whenever the neck felt heavier I would experience some headache. The only remedy I accepted to take, since I have always used drugs and painkillers as a last resort, was cold and hot patches. They provided some relief but some of the pain was still lingering for a few days. While going thought a list of specialists to find out where to get help, I ran through the name of Chiropractor. And I thought why not, let me try. That was the best idea I have had for awhile. After 3 adjustments I barely felt the pain. 2 month in to the treatment, I will be seeing Doctor Waefer only once every other week. No more pain and headache. Im now back to my normal routine and workouts.
I have seen many different chiropractors in my life. None have given me the attention and ease of movement that Dr. Richardson has. I have had several chiropractors try to adjust my upper vertebrae but no movement. From the first time Dr. Richardson worked on me, my C1 and C2 moved and have stayed in position for longer periods of time. I also have rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Richardson has done wonders to help keep me moving. Dr. Richardson is young but he really knows his stuff. I highly recommend him.
I have a fear of them chiropractor folks, they crack backs, necks nad end up worse than when you got there. I was so bad I had to get fixed up right, so i went in there and that Dr Philip was a world class guy, really fine fellow that really took great patience with me and relaxed me before fixing me up. I had about a ton of questions, but he answered. Great chiropractor in Houston!
Excellent diagnosis, friendly and caring service, total treatment. I am standing taller and more upright, with less slouching, increased flexibility, more health conscious. Even sorted out a sore shoulder from slight misalignment in the socket. I can unreservedly recommend Dr. Wafer.
For starters, the staff at the front desk are very professional and friendly. Very easy to make an appointment and checking out is a breeze. Dr. Wafer is very good at what he does. He is very courteous and takes the time to ask about any past problems/ailments you may have mentioned as well as making sure he addresses any new issues. I love that there's minimal waiting times for Dr. Wafer but you never feel rushed!
I came to Core Chiropractic due to severe lower back pain that was triggered by playing basketball. Each time I played, the pain increased. From the 1st visit onward my lower back increasingly felt better and now I play basketball and don't have any pain during nor afterward.
Was moving and lifted something wrong. Went in with pretty bad lower back pain. Saw Dr. Hicks and started feeling better after a couple of visits. Back to normal now. Excellent Care.
Dr. Hicks is great. Went in with neck and lower back pain. She straightened me out in just a few days. Now just going to maintain. A real lifesaver!
I am impressed with the knowledge that Dr. Cordova has. There are few people who I can say truly are the best at what they do but Dr. Phil Cordova is one of them.
My experience was very good.
Had a nerve in my lower back really bothering me. After a few visits, all the pain was gone. Nice clean office, very professional, just a great experience. They have a healthy eating class I look forward to attending. Will be my doc's for a long time in the future.
I had the most wonderful experience at Core Chiropractic the other day. I too was referred to Dr. Beau Gregersen, and he was Brilliant! He not only fixed my problem but made me laugh while doing so. He helped me out and sent me home with tips to better my posture and to help with my discomfort. I really enjoy the ""Self-Serve"" system they provide to the patients making them feel more comfortable in a more relaxed atmosphere, making it a more ""Pleasant sort of Doctor Visit"" I would refer Dr. Beau to ANYONE! He was great!
The chiropractor ive been going to since i was 12 is no longer in practice and my back went out on my late saturday night to where i could barely move. I was worried i wasnt ever going to find another one like the one ive been going to for so long and core was recommended to me by my boyfriend. Dr Bo was FANTASTIC!!! The closest match to my previous chiropractor! He even called me in the evening to see how my adjustment was and to check my comfort level!!! Everyone was so nice and very helpful..extremely pleasant experience!! if you need a chiropractor who knows their stuff and truly cares, go see the drs at CORE!!!
Pros: great location, immediate appointment, knowledgeable
I was suffering from neck pain and loss of movement. One visit to Dr. Cordova convinced me that I had found the right place for help. My overall pain level has significantly reduced and I have greater freedom of movement now! His office staff is very friendly and organized. I am often seen within minutes of arriving for my appointment time and am on my way within 25-30 minutes. Thanks so much!
Unrelenting lower back pain led me to consult a chiropractor for the first time ever. I checked on Citysearch and was a bit skeptical about all the glowing 5-star reviews, but now I am writing one. My health has improved in so many ways since I started visiting Dr Cordova. Upscale service at reasonable prices, and Dr Cordova is 'in network' for many insurance plans. I am so glad I decided to make an appointment with Core Chiropractic.
Pros: Competent, Convenient, Reasonably priced
I am one of 400,000 Americans with multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). Dr. Cordova has made a tremendous difference in improving the quality of my life with periodic adjustments to my neck, spine, and legs. As a result, my walking ability has improved and I have more energy which has made it possible for me to be more active and fight off the tendancy to become sedantary. I recommend Dr. Cordova to others who have similar symptoms as mine.
Pros: Professional, positive staff; prompt attention; location
Cons: No negatives
My neck pain got worse after going to core chiropractic. I think my neck has been misaligned even more.
Pros: good location
Cons: worse neck pain
Want to get rid of your pain and feel great? Then CORE Chirporactic is the place to be! After the first visit, I could tell a difference, I'm also convinced that my allergies have improved. I just feel better all over. A friend of mine said that I seemed happier. I do because I feel so much better. Dr. Philip Cordova is fabulous and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. Everyone in the office is friendly and cheerful. I have referred many of my friends and they are also pleased to be getting rid of their pain. I'm thankful for the friend who referred me.
Pros: Feel better instantly
Cons: Must stick with it but worth it in the long run
Core Chiropractic came to a company health fair and I took Core's spinal analysis evaluation and signed up for a free evaluation at their office because I was experiencing back and neck pain. I met with Dr. Keane and he explained the results of the evaluation and how he thought he could help me feel better. I have had approximately 15 adjustments over the course of 3 months and I feel so much better. I am moving into the maintenance phase and I have become a believer in chiropractic care. Dr. Keane is very a very kind, caring doctor and I appreciate how he explains how we are ""connected"" anatomically. I am a 50+ female and sit at a desk 10 hours a day. The adjustments have helped me feel better!
Pros: great staff, convenient location
Core consistently can adjust my difficult back. I have seen many chiropractors and Only Core can adjust my back everytime. There knowledge and experience has helped me maintain my back and eliminate my discomfort and pain. I highly recommend to see them and give them chance. I am positive you will keep coming back. The staff is professional and always kind and welcoming.
Pros: Easy in and out, as well as excellent adjustments and care.
Cons: I have experience not negatives at any time during my care
Dr. Cordova is the best chiropractor that I have ever seen!!!
Pros: Dr. Cordova & his staff are so wonderful!!!
The office has very friendly staff; the doctors are knowledgeable and always willing to answer my questions. Also, for the benefits, its easy to fit into my schedule - they have periodically taken me a bit early to accomodate my needs.
Pros: Dr. Cordova is great, other doctors and staff are friendly
Dr. Cordova answered all of my questions in a clear concise manner. He followed a methodical and effective course of treatment that reflected the integrity of his word. He dispelled any misconceptions I had about chiropratic medicine. Two thumbs up and a straight back for the services provided by CORE Chiroporactic!!!
Pros: Attitude, Integrity, Caring, Clear communication, Results
Enjoyed the group session (plus a good cause ""school supplies)
Thanks for the invite

This is place to go if you need to go to the chiropractor. Great people and they know how to fix your problems. Give them a chance you won't regret it.
Pros: Great People
What a great experience. I had terrible back pain and stiffneess when I went to see Dr. Cordova. My hip had become uneven from compensating for the pain in my back which compounded the problem. In my work as a Sales and Leadership trainer I have to move constantly and it was a problem. When I first arrived I was professionally greated by Myra. She was friendly and concerned. She got me set to see the doctor. The number one complaint about doctors is poor bedside manner. That is not the case with Dr. Cordova. He asked me plenty of questions, took X-rays and explained everyhing in detail and with genuine concern. After reviewing everything he recommended a treatment program. After a couple of sessions I began to feel less pain and stiffness. The process continued and each time he talked to me about how I was doing. Today I am so much better that I routinely engage in activities I have not been able to do for close to a year. During the entire time everyone at Core Chiropractic has continued to be friendly, warm and highly professional. Dr. Cordova has made a world of difference. I highly recommend him and his team.
Pros: Doctors and staff you can talk to.
Dr. Cordova and his staff (Hi, Myra! ;)) turned my incapacitating pain into a truly positive experience. After my first visit (my first to any chiropractor, in fact), I actually looked forward to my next visit, and I'm not one to look forward to seeing *any* doctor. HIGHLY recommended!
Pros: Friendly AND professional
Cons: Cons? Haven't found any yet.
Dr. Cordova is the 3rd chiro I've gone to in Houston and I wish I'd found him first, as the other 2 never helped me. He is amazing - I cannot believe how quickly he got me out of considerable pain. I had some pretty serious back and neck issues - I still have a ways to go to correct my posture and build up the muscles in my back, but I am so thankful to Dr. Cordova for getting me on the right track and for taking such good care of me. The staff is wonderful and they have been so accommodating. This is the ONLY chiro to go to in Houston. If you're in pain, this is the doctor you need to call ASAP.
Pros: Best Chiropractor in Houston
There was a level of comfort from the beginning. Dr. Natalie Cordova made me feel at ease, listened intently to my reasons for coming to her, and explained to me what she needed to do to help me and why. She encouraged me to make changes to my lifestyle that would help me to help myself. Going to her office has always been a pleasant experience.
Pros: Informative, knowledgable, professional
I had never been for this type of checkup. I work next door so I see alot of people coming and going from teh Dr's office most with a nice smile after the visit. I decided to check on my back and found that I have some semi serious issues. They took teh time to explain everything show me what I needed and worked with me on a workable scheduale due to my work times. They truly care about the clients. I find that rare now a days. I would recommend anyone to visit with them. They treat you like family. I work with customer relations so I know the real thing when I see it. This is the real thing. try it. I believe you will love it.\r

Pros: Easy to get to location, friendly staff.
Cons: none yet.
I found Dr Natalie Cordova by accident while searching the Web for solutions to my postural problems and neck pain. Looking for a Houston Chiropractor; I wanted someone who specialized in my issues not just a generalist. With Dr. Cordovas' pro-active exercises, that I do on my own, combined with corrective treatments in her office I have seen, and feel, marked improvement in just a few weeks. I can't begin to tell you how thrilled I am with the results ! Thanks a million, Pauline S
Pros: Very convenient location (for me). Free parking. Easy access to the offices
Cons: None that I could see.
Dr. Cordova and his staff made sure I was getting the correct therapy. They made me feel at home, with fast and friendly service. It wasn't like an uncomfortable visit, this was no regular doctor, but an angel. My treatment has been lovely,. I am glad I choose Core Chiropractics for my recovery, I will recommend anyone that needs any treatment/therapy. So if you are reading this you need to get to Core Chiropractics fast.
Very pleasant place. Professional Atmosphere. Doctor Cordova is very knowlegable. They have an awesome water filter.
I am 41 years old and had my 2nd child two years ago. Slowly over the next couple years, I experienced more and more hip, back and pelvic pain and eventually could no longer exercise and by October, 2008 I needed daily OTC pain relief to try to make it through the day.\r
I started seeinig Dr. Phillip Cordova in October, 2008. Initially, I went three times/week and the pain relief was for about 1/2 day. Over the next few months, the pain relief continued to improve and I know see Dr. Cordova one day/week, need no OTC pain relief, and I am exercising regularly.\r
I could not be more happy with the results that I have experienced and highly recommend him!
Living in pain should not be an option! After complaining everyday for six months, and off and on for two years, I decided to make a chiropractor appointment. I chose Dr. Cordova because of the fantastic reviews, and he surpassed my expectation. He is honest, straightforward and kind. He took the time to talk about my troubles and explained my diagnosis fully, answering all my questions. \r
I am 90% pain free and am committed to his treatment plan...and I have a hard time with commitment. :)
Pros: Fantastic staff, doctor, facility, location, parking
I went to Core Chiropractic with what I thought was sciatica down my right leg which was a new issue and a right shoulder and arm that I have had numbness and pain in for a while. I got relief after just a couple of visits for both issues. Dr. Natalie told me my leg issue was most likely bursitis and helped me be pain free from that within a couple of visits. When I researched bursitis online, the symptoms were an exact match to mine. My arm and shoulder are getting better as Dr. Natalie has been using Microcurrent which has amazing results. This is the most efficiently run office thanks to Myra at the front desk. She is so cheery and very organized! Dr. Natalie is always on time and has never left me waiting for more than a moment or 2. That means alot to me as I am a busy working mother who can't spare too much time and it's great knowing that I will get in there, get my treatment and get out with no wasted time sitting around waiting to be seen. Excellent care - I highly recommend them. I wish all Dr. offices ran this well. The easy parking in the front of the building is a big time saver as well.
Pros: Excellent care, easy parking, efficient office
I first went to Core Chiropractic because I had re-injured my lower back and was walking with a great deal of pain. I have had lower back pain on and off for many years and have been to several doctors who have never really done anything to fix the problem but have mostly just treated the pain and inflamation. On my first visit to Dr. Cordova, I was given X-rays and some minor adjustments to ease the pain. I have since begun a multi-week program where I will end up going apprx 30 times to recieve adjustments in order to have my spine stabilized and hopefully fix my back problems for good. So far I have seen a lot of improvement and remain very hopeful that I will eventually not have to worry about my back as I have done for many years. Dr. Cordova is always very attentive, perceptive, and listens incredibly well. I never feel like he is in a rush to get me in and out and he is always willing to answer questions I may have. Another great thing about the service is that it is very quick. I have never had to wait more then a minute or two to see Dr. Cordova. Also within my first week after I had injured my back, Dr Cordova made arrangements to meet me on a weekend in order to get in an extra adjustment to help with my pain. Overall, I have been very satisfied with the service and treatments I have recieved. I would recommend Core Chiropractic to anyone.
I called CORE to schedule an appt. after I was in an auto accident and was pleasantly surprised when they agreed to see me that same day since I was in pain. The office is conveniently located near the Galleria, it has hours that are suitable for people with busy schedules, and it is cozy and comfortable. The receptionist Myra is very sweet and always helpful when scheduling appointments. From my very first visit, D r. Cordova has been very helpful in easing my back pain and getting rid of my headaches. He always takes his time, explains the procedures, and freely answers questions. He also makes a good joke every now and then (if you like that sort of thing : ) I've been going to CORE for almost 3 months now and I am very happy with the treatment and care I've received. I would highly recommend CORE to anyone who is looking for a good chiropractor.
Pros: Good location, excellent treatment and care, friendly and helpful staff, convenient hours
Dr. Philip Cordova is an Excellent Chiropractor. I have a recurring back problem since I travel a lot. He assessed the problem and made the necessary adjustments.After each treatment, I'm able to move and walk without pain. Great office environment and you don't have to wait too long for your scheduled appointment.
Pros: Don't have to wait too long for your appointment. Lots of parking spaces.

Pros: The best
I have been seeing Dr. Philip Cordova for about 7 years. He has helped me with several injuries. If it wouldn't have been his services, I would not have use of my right arm. He also helped me recover from a car accident injury. I was not able to bend over or turn my neck. . I appreciate all that he has done for me.
