Fourteen years ago I got into a bad car accident. Thought I could get relief with massages from a licensed LMT. She told me I was getting worse not better and suggested an orthopedic surgeon. Discussed my issue and told him I was heavily involved in tournament tennis. At that time I could not lift my head. It was very painful. He suggested Dr. Illo because he said that's where he send all his "professional athlete" clients. Dr. Illo took xrays and showed me my problem. Said I had one of the worse cases of whiplash he had seen. Had me stand in the mirror so I could see how contorted I was due to muscle constraction. He said had I not come to him in time, my condition would have resulted in a permanent condition requiring surgery or a life of pain. After weeks of treatment, I was able to return to my tennis schedule.

Ten years later I got in yet another car accident. Dr. Illo still had my xrays from my previous accident and said how well my treatment had held up. Actually, I never needed to go back in 10 years because he did just a great job. He didn't feel the latest accident required as much treatment which I appreciate any doctor honest enough not to over treat just because you have insurance.

After my treatments, I've not had any problems since... and its been 4 years!

My daughter had a bulging disk problem resulting from a skateboarding accident and he treated her as well. What is interesting is, shortly thereafter she moved to Seattle and still have to see a chiro. If she was here and had been able to continue treatmente with Dr. Illo, I'm sure she would not have to continue months of treatment.

I was referred to Dr. Illo 10 years ago. About every 3-6 months my sciatic nerve gets so pinched that I am in excruciating pain. Dr. Illo always fixes it with just one visit and all the pain goes away until the next time I mess it up (falling while skiing, driving my husbands truck, etc.). I have tried other chiropractors and for some odd reason no one has been able to fix my back problem except for Dr. Illo. Recently I had the experience (for the first time in my life) of a rib going out. It hurt for 2 months. I was in Texas visiting family and went to a chiropractor there with no luck (went twice). Then I went to Dr. Illo for sciatic pain and mentioned the rib. He fixed it and the pain went away and hasn't come back. The only complaint I have is that he is extremely busy and it is hard to get in for an appointment. However, he is the most skilled chiropractor I know (and I have been to many).

I used to think all Chiropractors are the same. I was wrong. Dr. Illo has accomplished things in the health of my family that no MD or even chiropractor was able to duplicate. I know I am not alone as it often takes weeks to get an appt. and most of those patients he got through referrals from other really happy patients. In my experience it has been Dr. Illo that informed me when I needed to see a MD for things that were not covered by chiropractic treatments. I do not find many MD's concerned enough about my health to recommend I see a chiro when my condition it outside of their scope. I high recommend Dr. Illo and his partner Dr. Fisher. As to the person who has the hurt spouse, I am sorry for your pain. I know of more than one person that Dr. Illo gave the ability to have a life back again. I know that for you this is painful and a personal trauma. It is my experience that I can not trust most medical doctors to accurately inform me about chiropractors practices or their benefits or lack there of. There difference in perspective between the two is as different as those that thought the world was flat and were violent to the crazies who thought it was round. I am sorry for your pain but I would also be more apt to recommend that you go back to Dr Illo than I would the MD. If he truly can not help, he will honestly give you advice on who can and often help you understand how they can.

My spouse went in to see Dr. Anthony Illo to get relief from his chronic lower back pain and incurred additional trauma to his spine resulting in permanent injury.

Prior to visiting Dr. Illo my spouse had no neck pain whatsoever. After two neck adjustments my spouse was left with a bulged disc in his lower cervical spine resulting in significant pain. Our primary doctor confirmed that his bulged disc was caused by Dr. Illo's deragatory chiropractic services.

We have learned about several other simular cases where Dr. Illo has caused far more damage then good. It is our immediate objective to inform the public of Dr. Illo's wrongful actions.

Dr. Illo made me believe that chiropractors can be great. He fixed several problems I had and I didn't have to go back until I had a new problem. He is a very positive person. He will give you the exercises you need to improve your condition (if possible). Easy freeway access to his office.

Pros: Excellent doctor

Cons: Expect an hour wait in the waiting room by afternoon. You can call the staff to find out the wait time.

My personal experience with Dr Illo is this- My neck was too straight and my c2 was out of aliment. Dr Illo is the on chiropractor that has taken x-rays before he touched me. He has the x-ray equipment right in his office. And I found having x-rays done there was much cheaper that having to go out of the office to have them done. Also the Doctor can look at them right away. My neck pain was such that I was getting headachs every day just by sitting or laying wrong or by trying to strech. After one adjustment my neck pain was 95% better. This has made a huge difference in my life. I had 2 more adjustments and the he told me to come back if I had more pain. I have not. Now this is a huge departure from the other chiropractors that I have seen. None of the had x-rays done till after 10 treatments and the other chiropractors always me coming back 2 times a week for more than a month. Dr Illo had been in practice for many years and had developed many of his own techniques. He is so different from other Chiropractors. In my experience if you have to come back to your other chiropractor to get adjusted many times with almost no improvement at least give Dr Illo a chance. Prior to seeing him I was told buy 3 other people to see him. PS. His prices are very cheap.

Pros: effective tx

Cons: long waiting room time

I noticed the person blaming Dr Illo for the family medical issues posted on another site that they were already in treatment for major issues. I am sorry for their pain but my reccomendation is to not allow this persons experiece to keep you away from the most qualified chiropractic treatment I am aware of. My wife was completely disabled due to being rear-ended mutiple times and he has given a life again. I was referred to him by someone with a similar story and the waiting room is full and appts are sometimes weeks out all for the same reason. Read the reviews and then go see the man.

Pros: The best care I am aware of.

Cons: This is a planning exercise. days to get an appt and then the waiting room

We have gone to Dr. Illo for many years. When I first started seeing him, I was having headaches more days than not every week. After just a few visits, I was having them only a few times a month (usually cycle related). My husband was rear-ended and had a whiplash. He saw Dr. Illo fewer times than we thought it would take, and got great relief from the pain. After these initial visits, we only need to see him once or twice a year, kind of like going to the dentist.

My 12-year daughter was having severe headaches and after one visit where he adjusted her atlas, her headaches virtually disappeared. (She was visibly different - one shoulder higher than the other and her head twisted before, straight afterwards.) She too only goes rarely (now she's almost 15). Two of my older kids (now 17 and 19) have had adjustments from him with wonderful results as well.

Dr. Illo always is complete in his exam and I never feel like he is rushed with me; he is personable, asking about the family and such. He is so knowledgeable and regularly goes to seminars and the like to learn more about his profession. I have recommended him to many people, and they have had similar experiences with him.

Because he is so thorough and relaxed, wait times are sometimes longer than normal, but to me it's worth it. I just bring a book.

Never have I ever been to a more experienced and dedicated Chiropractor.
When I was suffering from migraine auras and TMJ problems I visited Tony Illo with not much expectation that he would be different from other chiros, but he was. He did a thorough exam with x-rays, made notes and figured out how many adjustments it would take for my problems to be resolved. He did gentle treatments that seemed so subtle that it shouldn't have worked, BUT IT DID. He was right on. He told me it would take 5 treatments for me not to need him anymore, it took 4. The best part is that the adjustments have lasted for years! I only have migraines on rare occassion in the last 5 years, versus daily for years.
I am very satisfied with his techniques and experience and refer many of my patients to him when there is upper neck problems, especially involving the Atlas.

Pros: Expert on the nuchal adjustments

Cons: Wait times to get in to the office is sometimes long

In response to the previous poster: I am very sorry that your husband has a bulging cervical disk, this can cause some very severe symptoms. However, I believe his MD. may be mistaken about the cause. My entire family has seen Dr. Ilo on a regular basis for 8 yrs. He helped us recover from injuries incurred in, falls, car accidents as well as, work related accidents. During this time I have known Dr. Ilo to be nothing besides cautious, compitent, and effective!
More to the point of the previous posting, I do not believe that: one, Dr. Illo would treat an area of the body that was having no symptoms ("no pain in his neck"), and two, Dr. Illo practices a type of chiropactic designed to be gentle- his neck adjustments do not involve "cracking", direct maqnipulation, or impact that could cause a cervical injury of this type
Dr. Illo is an amazing chiropractor! I would trust him to adjust my husband, myself, and my 8 year old son!

Pros: sometimes longer than average wait time

Cons: This wait time is due to Dr. Illo taking as much time as needed to treat each patient.
