I went to Dumas Chiropractic because of 2 reasons; I had a pinched sciatic which is sometimes out of control and it was the closest to my house. Apparently convenience isn't everything.
I had never been to a chiropractor before and I didn't know what to expect. Certainly not an office the size of a double-wide that hasn't had a single update in 30 years. I definitely didn't expect or appreciate a country music station playing so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. And I absolutely did not expect Dr. (?) Dumas.

After filling out their rather invasive and irrelevant patient demographic form I was brought into a room to watch a video about chiropractics. I was suddenly reminded of what I thought was a job interview fresh out of high school which turned out to want me to pay $500 to sell phone cards. After the video concluded, in walks Dr. Dumas. He talks faster than a used-car salesmen on amphetamines. He's that kind of person that tries to make a friend out of you in 30 seconds. And then he starts in with what I call profiling questions. Immediately I became uncomfortable with the whole situation. After all the measurements and x-rays were done I was told to come back in 2 days to go over the results.

My next visit was the same as the first, uncomfortable and obnoxious. This time there was an adjustment to be had. Upon said adjustment, he came to a part of my back that because of an accident is very sensitive and was clearly shown on the x-ray. I was in so much pain I nearly passed out, and he acted like that was normal. I then mentioned the accident and he seemed surprised. Obviously he never read the chart I filled out. I was left in pain for five days because of this and have not been back since.

With the lack of any true medical diagnosis, this guy came off as a quack. Nothing was ever asked about my activity level, diet or weight. Apparently these do not contribute to back problems anymore. Dr. Dumas has completely destroyed what little faith I had in alternative medicine and came off as a quack. Apparently the chiropractic creed is, "We'll help you cope and hope it fixes itself."
