Dr. Nikitow knows the spine. I have been to a handful of Chiros over my 43 years and I never had one that spent so much time educating people. With new patients he give a free weekly 1.5 hour presentation on the basics of the spine and how and why his work works. He takes an xray at the first appt and then compares your spine after he works on you for a few months....so you can see a tangible result. He treats with a long term approach UNLIKE a lot of other Chiros. All you need to do is listen to this guy for 10 min ask 2 questions and you will realize he knows his stuff. I drive over an hour to see him and I was very short on cash when I started with him. I went to him for over a month before paying my first bill...and I am not sure where the one person was getting their figures but with a 100 adjustments I think I paid about $26 each. No where near $40.

He was likely trying to save your life, giving you an honest recommendation instead of doing what most other chiropractors do...He was likely looking at the amount of care you need, instead of judging by how much you can afford. "I've never been in a bad accident..." One of the most traumatic events of one's life can be the very birth process most of us will go through when we enter this world.

Maybe the other reviewer was looking for the regular type of chiropractor, not the correcting kind. I'd give him more stars for what he has done for me and my family, but 5's the limit.

By the way, he charges less than most, if not all of the other chiropractors in the area. Isn't it a good thing if he gives you an even bigger discount if you choose to come in more often?

I went here for just under 1 year and it cost me about $8,000 by the time I quit going. They tell you that you will have to go there for 3-4 times a week for a month or two until you get into ...problem is that you never get into going once a week or less until they say you can, which never comes. I never became "pain free" like they promise. You get rushed in and out like cattle in an "assembly line" process. You share the room with about 6 other patients. Dr. Nikitow is a salesman and the staff is unprofessional and rude. I ended up going to another office after that and had a great experience elsewhere and am now pain free and only have to go about 1 time a month. Want a good chiropractor? Try checking out an atlas orthogonal doctor.

Pros: quick visits

Cons: expensive, quick visits, doesn't take insurance

There's a notice posted on the front desk: "We've never turned anyone away for financial reasons. But we have turned people away for not being committed to their health." I should have taken the hint. Dr. Nikitow seems very good at what he does, and I like the fact that he does X-rays, analyzes them, and then tells you exactly how many months it will take him to correct your spine. He has a lot of big-name clients, including the L.A. Raiders football team, Dana Carvey, and Gallagher. There are all kinds of testimonials on his walls of how he's cured everything from endometriosis to asthma. I believe it. Problem is, his method is to treat you for about 10 minutes, 4 times a week. Since my insurance (UnitedHealthcare) pays for 24 visits a year, that means that means my insurance would be used up in 1.5 months. After that, it's out-of-pocket, to the tune of $40 per visit. He operates a very profitable assembly line - at any given time, he's got 5 beds in a row, doing his 10-minute treatment to 5 people simultaneously. In talking to other chiropractors in the area and other former patients, this is standard procedure at Denver Tech Chiropractic - 4 times a week until you're "fixed." I'm 29 years old, haven't been in any bad accidents, but to get my spine straight, that's what he says I need. And I need to purchase a 250-visit prepay plan to get the best deal. The problem is, Nikitow gives you the treatment he thinks you need, and doesn't really care about what you can realistically afford. He does business his way, purposely ignoring the entire U.S. insurance system. Apparently, if you're sufficiently "committed to your health," you won't mind the out-of-pocket cost. I thought it was interesting that the standard new patient application form asks you to rate on a scale of 1 to 10 how committed you are to your personal wellness. Well, I guess I'm just not that committed, especially when there are other qualified professionals who don't bleed you dry.
