I have had a terrific experience with Bellevue Chiropractic Group. I was involved in an automobile accident several months ago. My doctor referred me for an motion x-ray evaluation with Dr. Wisman. I am impressed with the doctor, staff and office in general. I have been a serious athlete for many years and as a result have gotten to know many doctors. Dr. Wisman is the best chiropractor I have ever met. His patients travel from all over Washington to see him. He even treats the leaders of some governments in Asia. If you need a chiropractor start with Bellevue Chiropractic Group. I highly recommend them to everyone I know.
I have seen Dr. Wisman at Bellevue Chiropractic Group for the past few years. I was referred by my surgeon as a last resort to back surgery. Dr. Wisman put my mind at ease on the first visit. He has treated thousands of patients over his career and it shows. I was impressed with the technology they used to image my neck and back. The moving x-ray was very helpful to diagnose where my problems were coming from. I was in pretty bad shape on my first visit. I had been hurting for several months. Physical therapy and spine injections hadn't done much for me. I could barely walk and had a numb leg. I couldn't believe it when I felt better during my first visit. Within 6 weeks my pain was gone and I have felt great ever since. Thank you Dr. Wisman and Bellevue Chiropractic Group.
I suffered with migraine headaches for more than 30 years. I tried traditional medicine with referrals to several headache specialists. Neurologists, endocrinologists and pain management specialists. I even visited Mayo Clinic-all with limited results-more pills. A few months ago during a follow up visit, my doctor shared that he had recently referred some other migrain patients to Dr. Wisman and that he had heard rave reviews. I was nervous and excited at the same time. I made an appointment immediately. Everything about Dr. Wisman and Bellevue Chiropractic Group has been a terrific experience! His staff is very polite and professional. Dr. Wisman uses a moving xray procedure that helped demonstrate where my spine wasn't moving. Within 3 visits my entire health began to turn around. I am headache free after living with debilitating headaches for 30 years. Dr Wisman is kind, caring and very knowledgeable. If you suffer with headaches I highly recommend Bellevue Chiropractic Group. I have joined the other raving reviewers!
I had suffered from head aches for years and had received treatment from several different Chiropractors. Although there was some temporary relief there was seldom relief that lasted more than a month. This went on for years and then I was involved in a serious car accident. I had a friend suggest I take my injuries to Dr. Wisman and let him try and help me. My injuries were quite extensive and my headaches were worse than ever after my accident. Dr. Wisman not only helped repair the damage to my neck he completely took away my headaches. I visited him 20 times in about 3 months. My headaches were gone almost instantly and the rest of my pain is gone too!! It has been over a year now and I am so thankful to have this referral!!! Go see him for headaches or car accident injuries. He is the best and his staff is great too. His office is always clean and looks beautiful. Great place and great Doctor!
I have been going to see Dr. Wisman at Bellevue chiropractic Group since 2007. I was suffering with debilitating headaches for years. After trying many different things that didn't help my family doctor suggested Dr. Wisman. He had heard Dr. Wisman speak at a professional meeting and suggested I drive to Bellevue for a consultation. His office was amazing! The staff is very professional and caring. They explained everything very carefully. Dr. Wisman was very detailed in his examination. He used a moving x-ray procedure that very clearly showed me where my headaches were coming from. After one visit my headaches were improved. Each visit built on the last and in 6 visits, I was pain free for the first time in years. Not only that but now I have more energy, sleep better and have my life back. I drive 45 mile to see Dr. Wisman but it is worth every mile! I highly recommend Bellevue Chiropractic Group and Dr. John Wisman. They really understand what patients are looking for.
I am very surprised to see the previous reviews regarding Dr. Wisman and his clinic's services. Dr. Wisman and his staff provide excellent service in all areas! I along with my family and friends have been patients here for over five years and we have received nothing but excellent service and quality care! I highly recommend putting your trust in Bellevue Chiropractic Group.
Dr. Wisman is the best! I tried several other chiropractic offices with only limited success. My experience with Dr. Wisman and his team was totally different. I made a complete recovery from the headaches and back pain I had suffered with for years in a matter of 3 weeks. I highly recommend Bellevue Chiropractic Group!
In April of 2008 I began to suffer with constant debilitating pain and numbness in my left shoulder, bicep, elbow and hand. My family doctor prescribed medicine and ordered an MRI of my neck. The MRI revealed that I had disc herniations at C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and especially at C6-C7 causing spinal cord and foraminal compression. The surgeon was positive I would require a 4 vertebra fusion surgery to get better. He stated that the compression was so severe that my spinal cord was ??banana? shaped. He discouraged me from trying chiropractic stating it wouldn??t work. I decided to try it while I waited for the surgery. I had conservative spinal adjustments and non-surgical decompression at Bellevue Chiropractic Group. In a matter of a few appointments I began to feel a lot better. In 11 visits almost all of the numbness was gone and I was 95% pain free. Today, as of July of 2010, I am fully recovered and haven??t had any pain for months!
I visit here from Jackson, Mississippi, in the summer. Over the last few years I have experienced back problems and a friend of my daughter's recommended Dr. Wisman. He has not only reviewed existing conditions, Dr. Wisman continues to treat ongoing and intermittent pain but also seeks to preclude further problems, as well as recommending a 'balance' pad to help with developing stronger walking and upright strength.
I would travel the world to see Dr.
Wisman, as in my 85 years of living, I have never before met such a caring and skilled chiropractor! He has helped me move away
from using a 'walker' to standing and walking without aid.
By far the best experience I have had in a doctors office in years! I had been suffering with chronic headaches for more than 35 years. I have seen every specialty under the sun-both traditional and alternative medicine. I was on an array of pain medicines and had lost all hope of finding a cure. I had tears in my eyes when Dr. Wisman described my headaches to me based on the results of my moving x-ray findings (Video fluoroscopy). I knew right then that my health was about to do a complete turn around. Within 3 weeks my headaches were gone. I am off all medications and feel better than I have in 35 years! I haven't had a headache in over a year! Don't walk...RUN if you have headaches!
I was referred to Bellevue Chiropractic Group for a lower back pain. I was impressed with the moving x-ray procedure. Dr. Wisman immediately pinpointed the problem in my lower back. The thing that really impressed me was how he knew I was having headaches and TMD-jaw problems without me saying a word. He figured it out using the results of my moving x-rays! Now I am pain free and haven't had a headache since my second visit. The treatment was painless. I would highly recommend Bellevue Chiropractic Group and Dr. Wisman!
This office is amazing! The staff is caring and understanding. Dr. Wisman is passionate about helping his patients receive the best possible care. I was nervous about seeing a chiropractor but my medical doctor assured me it would be OK. That was the best referral ever! For the first time in 17 years I am completely free of headaches and neck pain!! Thank you Dr. Wisman and Staff!
As a 1st year Baby Boomer, I was raised to believe strictly in standard Western medicine. This meant that Alternative Medicine (herbal ??potions", acupuncture, etc.) was like Voo-doo, ??Shrinks? were for sissies who refused to suck it up, and ??Back-crackers? were all doctor-wannabe quacks. Now I??ve got one daughter who is a BSRN shock-trauma nurse and another daughter who is a Doctor of Eastern Medicine who both provide me great care and guidance. I??ve taken anti-depressants and benefitted from counseling. And I think my Chiropractor, Dr. Wisman, is a miracle worker. Turns out the world is round! Who knew?
Oh, I??m still grateful for Western medicine. But after eleven operations, I know that all surgeons with similar education in the science are not equal in practice. And after many ??standard? trial-and-error prescriptions, scans, injections and referrals failed to produce a lasting solution, I understand that 1) we are very complex organisms, 2) mind, body and whatever-you-call-spirit are interdependent, and 3) we each have final responsibility to seek, prove and apply what works.
A bad freeway accident left my back thoroughly whiplashed. After three years of specialists, MRIs, injections and pain killers, I was unable to walk, sit or lay down without great pain. A co-worker found me standing with my back pressed to a wall in the hallway unable to get to our next meeting. He recommended I see his Chiropractor, who had helped him with similar back problems. I was finally desperate enough to go against my programming and make an appointment with Dr. Wisman. After the first visit, the pain was greatly reduced, and after four treatments I was twisting all the way around to back up my car and felt almost as good as before the accident. That was in 1997.
I have tried a couple of other Chiropractors in Issaquah, when Dr. Wiseman was away from the office, and I have found that although they all do basically the same thing, none have been nearly as effective as when I am treated by Dr. Wisman. (Dr. Chereylena Simmonds at Bellevue Chiropractic Group is also very very good.)
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with chronic migraine headaches. I was tested, referred to a specialist who ordered a brain scan to rule out tumors, and finally left to take Imitrex and Vicodin. During a back adjustment visit, I mentioned this to Dr. Wisman, who asked me more about my situation and then said, ??I can fix that.? I laughed. He??s a great back man, but this was about headaches. Hello! Then I saw that he was serious, so I said, ??Well, OK, go ahead and try.? He didn??t try. He did it. I haven??t had migraines since.
I find that Dr. Wisman understands the harmony of mind, body and spirit, and has a wealth of practical knowledge and advice (even though implementing that advice may mean less Chiropractic visits). His sensitivity and personal ability, combined with his professional grasp of the sciences (plural) involved, has won my respect and gratitude. Thanks, Doc!
Pros: Good equipment; great staff; effective treatment
About 10 years ago my job and having kids worked a number on my lower back. I thought I was going to be plagued for the rest of my life with back pain. My general physician prescribed me muscle relaxers that looped me out and made it impossible to care for my children or drive to my job! So that solution only lasted me 1 day. Desperate, I took my best friends advice and went to see Dr Wiseman. To say I was a septic was a gross understatement! I was sure I was waisting my families hard earned money on a crap shoot. But on my last straw I gave him a chance. Needless to say I was fixed and better than ever after a couple of months. I can't believe I suffered for so long before giving him a try. My results lasted 10 years, until recently I forgot I was not Hercules and tried to move our bed up a flight of stairs. I know not smart. So back I am to the chiropractic wizard!
Thank you Dr Wiseman for your years of good service. You are the BEST!
Pros: Easy to schedule/great care
I began suffering from migraines at the age of 37 yrs old. Throughout the last 15 yrs I have tried many types of prescribed medications and have made many trips to the emergency room at the hospital. My Dr. also recommended that I try hormone therapy as well, which I chose not to do because of the reported negative effects from studies that had been done on women in peri, and post menopause.
Around 4 years ago my father had been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a very painful lung cancer for which there is no cure. It was at that time that I met Dr. Wiseman who was taking care of my Fathers chiropractic needs which were very acute due to extreme muscle tightness caused by his chronic pain. Dr. Wiseman used a motion x-ray to see exactly where the pain was coming from therefore causing very little discomfort in the process of spinal, neck and skull correction, helping immensely with his pain relief.
It was at that time that I began seeing him for help with the migraines. I rarely have them anymore and if I feel one coming on, I call and his office fits me right in and the headache is usually gone either when I leave the office or by the end of a couple of hours without the need of any medication. He has also helped me with the needed supplements for healthy bones and cartilage along with detox in preparation for weight loss which helped me finely be able to loose the 20 pounds that I had gained over a period of 10 years.
Dr. Wiseman has greatly improved the quality of life for me and my whole family. His entire office staff is truly kind, professional and dedicated to the well being of all of his patients.
Thank you Dr. Wiseman for all you have done, not only for me but for my parents and family too.
Pros: Motion X-Ray Technology
Cons: Absolutely None
As an 'older' person who had never had any symptoms, I was astonished to learn (after being totaled) that I had residual childhood spinal and neck damage, which would have caused enormous pain and difficulty in another 10 to 15 years, but was fully revealed by Dr. John Wisman's sophisticated x-ray and diagnostic skills after the accident. Who knew that chiropractic care is at least as requisite as family practice; especially to those of us mostly in excellent health~~!! ?? After Dr. Wisman put Humpty Dumpty back together again, I have continued with preventive visits at least once a month; he is now precluding arthritis and keeping my spine fully adjusted, and balancing hips, also, when they get uneven and cause one leg to be shorter than the other . . . which I've only recently learned is a fairly common human dynamic; frequently causes a most unpleasant 'sciatica type' leg pain. It is not surprising that Dr. John Wisman was voted Chiropractor of the Year by over 2000 of his professional colleagues just a few years ago . . . I'd travel from the moon to keep an appointment with him!! jsh
Pros: Highest quality chiropractic!
I was always wary of chiropractors, but I found myself in significant need of one. My friend recommended Dr. Levine in Bellevue to me. I went with a heavy dose of skepticism. I had been to two different chiropractors before in Utah, and I wouldn?t trust either of them as far as I could throw them, and that isn?t far. Dr. Levine did not live up to my horrible perceptions, in fact, he was quite wonderful! I have now gone back many times and would highly recommend him. He even worked well with my wide range of other doctors and knew of other highly recommended doctors for when I needed other specialties. He works hard to keep up with his patients to make sure that they are still doing ok long after meeting with him.
Pros: Easy to make reservations, great service, and not a kook
Bellevue Chiropractic Group has helped me to become back-pain free. They have incredible equipment for diagnosis and are extremely knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend this practice to anyone!
I have been referring my patients to Bellevue Chiropractic Group for years. They are professional and get terrific results. I am honored to work with Dr. Wisman and company. He is truely a capable expert with the highest standards. The motion x-ray procedure is very useful for difficult cases. If you are sufering I would highly recommend an appointment there first.
