I've been to many chiropractors in my years and Dr. Medlin is one of the best i've seen. He is knowledgable and seems to know how to get you out of pain. What I really appreciated is that he taught me how to take care of my own back and prevent future injuries.

I recovered fully from my auto injuries and am doing very well now.

I couldn't recommend anyone better.

Pros: down to earth dude, caring, spends time with patients

Cons: none.

.

I am a long standing patient of Dr. Medlin's and was asked to write a review on City Search if I've been pleased with the service. I noticed he received a pretty nasty review below, but after I read that, I honestly wondered if that review was talking about the same clinic and Doctor.
All I can say is that my experience has been absolutely contrary to that review. He never tires of questions or looks annoyed (I ask him stupid stuff all the time), He has answered the phone during my treatment before, but it never bothered me because it's not a Spa like setting, it's a Rehab type setting where your visits are 30-45 minutes or more! If he has to excuse himself for a moment so be it. It certainly doesnt make the patient care suffer. I think the negative review was simply looking for a negative. I know this because the negative review didnt' mention a critical thing:

The treatment! It works and gets you out of pain. Go to him without reservation. He's a chiro you can acutally trust!!! People use these sites to bash people they have something against. Try to remember that.

peace.

A friend recommended me to see Dr. Joe after I was injured from gardening. Was hesistant at first to see a chiropractor. So glad I did!!! He spent so much time with me and taught me all the ergonomic stuff to prevent future injuries. Office is very inviting and he does all the stuff himself. Never been to an office where the Dr. listens and gets to know you so well. Most spend abou5 5-10 minutes with you and out the door and a huge bill. Thanks Dr. Joe. Will send you some dahlias soon :)!

This is Spine Tree Chiropractic and we had to respond to Hashmander's slanderous review below.

This patient was treated in our office for for a few months for a minor injury. He had commented on how great the care was going and even presented Dr. Medlin with a gift in the middle of May. As time went on, it was noted that the patient's symptoms didn't jibe with the doctor's findings. This patient got extremely angered when we wouldn't refer him for more massage, which he did not need, and proceeded to argue with the doctor about it. The Doctor was baffled, stayed calm and asked him to leave. Ultimately we had to discharge the patient due to suspicions of Malingering (faking it), which is what spurns his anger and attempt to slander our office with lies.

He says we are knowledgable, and this is because we sat with patient on many occasions to field his various questions. His accusations are absolutely false, unwarranted and came down to one specific day.

Please take his tainted review with a grain of salt. Obviously he had an axe to grind and his statements are vastly untrue.

Pros: Encourages questions

.

After a recent auto accident I sought out Dr. Medlin for treatment. My first impression was positive, but after a few visits things started to go downhill fast. He comes off at first as very knowledgeable and in many regards I'm sure he is. However he is not professional in the end. Here are just a few examples. Almost every visit I had with him and there were at least 10 -15 he would be interrupted during our session and would actually excuse himself and go answer the phone in the middle of my treatment. That alone is enough for me to give him a negative review. He is either too greedy or just unable to afford employ a front desk staff. Either way there are many more professionally run Chiropractic offices out there. He really is a one man show and he tries to do it all. The problem is the care of his patients suffers. In addition I would not recommend him because he has a short temper and doesn't like to be questioned or really even questions of any kind. Generally he acts annoyed when asked questions, and that of course is annoying to me the patient. After all isn't a major part of a medical persons job to LISTEN to their patient? In conclusion I would never recommend Dr. Medlin to anyone under any circumstances. My advice is Stay Away!!!

I was hurt on a climbing trip and was referred to Dr. Medlin. Was hesistant w/Chiropractors but tried all other methods and got no where. Dr. Medlin was amazing on the first visit. He spent time explaining to me what was going on with my body. He adjusted me and wow, tremendous difference. With the way health care system is out there, this Dr. was not your standard provider. I actually was in his office for 45 min. first visit. Very educational and fabulous doc!!! He knows it all. I highly recommend Dr. Medlin before any other doctors even medical doctors!

Spine Tree has helped me back to work ASAP! Dr. Medlin has opened my eyes to chiropractic. I'm so thank ful for what he's done. You need to see Dr. Medlin for anything and not just back pain. He spends time educating you on whatever complaints you have. Medical doctors don't even spend 1/3 of the time with you. Dr. Medlin RULES!! Thank you, thank you.

Dr. Joe has healing hands. Strong yet comforting. Never was a strong supporter of chiropractic but was highly recommended to see Dr. Joe as the last resort and glad I did! If you had a bad experience in the past with chiropractors, check Dr. Joe out! He's very smart and can move that spine.

Pros: Actually spends quality time with you

Wow! I was blown away with the first treatment. After hearing all the bone cracking stories about chiropractors, I was very hesitant of visiting one. However, after trying all the alternative cares, it was the last resort. Dr. Joe is so personable, down to earth and explained in lament terms about the spine, ergonomics(new word) and health in general. He's so knowledgeable and actually spends some time with you. This is very rare for docs to actually sit down and talk to you from beginning to end! Highly highly recommends Dr. Joe. Thank you for your service.

I've suffered from serious neck, middle and lower back pain for about 10 years. Throughout last ten years I've seen various chiropractors, message therapists, physical therapists and acupuncturist - to no avail. I've lived in constant pain, bracing myself for many more years of pain. Dr. Joseph's approach is the most thorough I have experienced. Joe has given me an arsenal of exercises and stretches, along with a new MO on steps to take when my symptoms raise their ugly head. All in all I'm out of PAIN and my body is much stronger and flexible than ever, which in turn has given me a much less cynical outlook of my condition. A new lease on life you could say. Come on I'll wrestle you now!! (maybe not the best idea, but I sure feel great.......yes yes)

Pros: Very cool person, feels like a good friend working on you

Cons: Haven't had a beer with that good friend yet, my fault.

If you are in pain, go see Dr. Joe! He helped me through a work injury and I am able to sleep comfortably at night now without the pain. I highly recommend Joe. He is extremely thorough and personal. He always takes the time to explain things and doesn't rush you out the door like a lot of docs. I have a much better understanding of my own body now. Dr. Joe also treats you like a human being, not just another patient. I really like the space he has...it's small and doesn't feel like a sterile & stuffy office environment. Thanks Dr. Joe!

I have had many injuries to my low back over the years and have suffered with sciatic pain down my leg for years. I've been to many chiropractors, massage, accupuncture and PT in my life. Dr. Joe was upfront about my condition and what it would take to get out of pain. Following his advice was one of the best things i've done for i hardly ever suffer from sciatic anymore. If i do have a flare up Dr. Joe has given me the power and insight as to properly manage it. For that I'm extremely grateful!

Pros: Comfortable setting. I hate doctors offices. This was more like a private office setting.

Cons: hmmmmmm, If there are any i can't think of them and the pros wouldtotally outweigh them.

Dr. Medlin taught me a lot about my spine and my body. He dispelled many preconceived notions and myths i had about chiropractic. Just a really good honest guy.

What can i say?This guy busted his butt to get me better after i was in a nasty car wreck. I've truly never seen a doctor work as hard and care as much. Simple as that. Period. As i look at the feedback, i see im not the only one.

Dr. Joe has transformed my misgivings on the chiropractic profession. I went in with bad low back pain and a bit of skepticism. His demeanor and knowledge of these types of injuries set me at ease. I was impressed with his treatment too. Most places you will go and maybe see the doctor for a small amount of time. Dr. Joe does all the exercises with you. He also does the massage himself and his adjustments were gentle. I feel great and had to write this to tell others .
thanks Dr. Joe

Dr. Medlin at Spine Tree Chiropractic is intelligent, compassionate, honest and just plain good. Refer your friends and family to be treated like royalty. He uses his hands only and does not rely on machines or things you wouldnt normally classify as chiropractic. I had terrible neck pain and arm numbness from a car accident. Dr. Medlin did all the rehab on me and got me back to (actually better than) where i was before. Make an appointment with confidence
