An absolutely SUPERB chiropractor -- the best!!!\r
by Jaybird52 at Citysearch\r
Dr. Waling is an astonishingly great chiropractor who is also a neuropathy specialist. After I suffered a severe cervical nerve impingement and three neurosurgeons were telling me I absolutely had to have major surgery to fuse multiple neck vertebra, he brought me back to vigorous and entirely pain-free health without surgery! Several years later, I'm better than I've ever been. \r
Even though I live in Wallingford, I go to Queen Anne to see him instead of chiropractors near my house because, IMHO, he's a lifelong learner, natural healer, and far and away the best chiropractor in Seattle. \r
The person who wrote that horrible stand-alone negative review is clearly the nut, not Dr. Waling. I suspect that person has emotional troubles or some weird axe to grind that has nothing to do with this superb doctor and the attentive and unique care one receives at Starr Chiropractic.\r
Iam a machinist and I have had low back and mid back pain for years from standing on my feet all day . I have been too many chiropractors in the past but I haven't had the releif I got from Dr. Waling. He is the best. I would recomend him to anyone.

He just came back from a seminar on Quantum Neurology and helped my fibromyalgia when no one else could. He is thorough and knows what he is talking about. I trust him with my health and you will too. Best exam I ever had.
I had the Best results ever from this doctor and I have seen many doctors for my IBS and fibromyalgia. He is thorough and knows what to look for. I would trust him with anyone.
Dr. Waling and staff are wonderful and very professional. Dr. Waling is always striving to learn the latest and newest chiropractic techniques. He uses holistic healing and is concerned with whole body health. I always leave his office feeling wonderful. He uses an instrument called the Proadjuster that is so gentle that adjustments are a breeze.
UGH! You know how you just get a bad feeling about some places? Well, Starr Chiropractic is one of those places.
I went in with moderate back pain and was subjected to the strangest chiropractic treatment I've ever received. I actually left more uncomfortable and creeped out than when I got there. The doctor is strange and uses really bizarre treatments. I've been to several chiros and his methods were highly unusal. I agree with some of the other posts that this guy is only interested in repeat business. The receptionist was also really scatterbrained. She mixed my file up with another and billed my insurance incorrectly. I left the office angry and weirded out.
Terrible experience. Left in more pain than when I arrived and felt like the doctor was only concerned with getting me back in for more appointments.
I will definitely not be visiting this office again and I encourage you to steer clear as well!
Please DO NOT, under any circumstance patronize this office!!!
""Dr."" Waling practices the type of voodoo ""medicine"" that gives chiropractors a bad name. I went in for an adjustment and was subjected to a series of painful pokes and prods with a variety of frightening contraptions. He didn't lay actual hands on me once. At the end of the poking/proding/tapping/pulsing with electric devices, he rushed me out of the office with orders to have an x-ray. I asked for an adjustment first, since I knew that usually worked for me and he gave me a very unorthodox squeeze (with me standing) that didn't remotely do the trick. I left feeling worse than when I arrived. He was also very quick to let me know that I would need to see him several times a week for an extended period of time. I could practically see the $$ in his eyes. I'd also like to note that his office was eerily empty...not a single other patient. Dude is clearly hurting for business.
In addition, the aging receptionist is extremely rude and confrontational.
Since my visit to Starr, I have found Dr. Kamel at Eastlake Chiropractic.
Dr. Kamel is AMAZING and has helped me completely recover from my minor back pain.
Dr. Waling is a very effective healer--extremely personable and holistic in his approach to health. He has helped me immensely--not only to relieve back and neck pain, but also has greatly assisted in alleviating a chronic restless leg syndrome condition. Several persons in our office are patients and all of them are happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Waling.
I came to Dr. Waling through a referral. I was having multiple issues from my back to headaches to my stomach of all things! I walked into Starr Chiropractic thinking it was my last hope and I left a loyal patient for life! Dr. Waling took the time that other doctors didnt to try to understand what I was going through and where I was in pain. He helped me to understand why I was having issues and educated me on what I could do to in order to make things better. I am so thankful that I was referred to Dr. Waling, I am much happier and healthier thanks to him and his staff!\r
Pros: Great comfortable environment, friendly, educated
I was referred to Dr. Waling by my physician for circulation problems and pain in my feet. As this was my first experience with chiropractic care, I was not sure what to expect or how successful the treatment would be. However, Dr. Waling's treatment and his ability and excitement to discuss his approach and the structural and physiological factors causing my problems produced positive results and earned my confidence from the very first session on. I am happy to report that Dr. Waling has alleviated my problems where other forms of care were unsuccessful!
I've been seeing chiropractors for years.When I wasn't getting the results I wanted, I heard about Dr. Waling and went and saw him. He has a unique and holistic approach; he helps many issues other than just back pain. I went in with hip and leg problems--they were completely better within weeks. Dr. Waling is caring, thorough, and very effective.
I am almost 70 years old, and have been living overseas for over 30 years. I live in Kirkland,\r
but found a highly qualified chiropractor, Dr. Rick Walikng, at the Starr Chiropractic Clinic, on Queen Ann,. I don't mind traveling to Seattle for his very fine services...it is truly worth the time and effort. \r
For many years I have had trouble with my lower back, legs and with walking generally. After doing thorough testing Dr. Rick Waling found the root cause of the problems and with a series of adjustments has elimanated most of my pain in the first few treatement, and with later treatments solved my challenges fully. He also assisted me with nutrtional supplements and advice on diet, etc.\r
If anyone reading this has any pain or neck, spine or back problems, for for that matter any health issue, I highly recommend contacting Dr. Waling and his team. They are truly fine people, friendly, cheerful and fully dedicated to taking good care of all their patients. Peter Magurean III, Kirkland, WA
Pros: Parking avilable, good bus service, reasonable fees, excellent professional treatments
