Do You Love Going To Your Doctor?

Posted by Dr. Gray on Thursday, April 16, 2015

Gray Testimonial LogoHave you ever uttered the phrase, “I can’t wait to go see my doctor?” Actually, this phrase could be used two different ways. On one hand, you could be stating that you’re in so much pain that you can’t put off getting treatment any longer. However, the context I’m referring to is that in which you are looking forward to and excited about going to your appointment. I would guess that most people have rarely, if ever, felt so strongly and happy about their health care that they were excited for upcoming treatment visits.

There is at least one exception to this mindset… regular chiropractic patients. Chiropractic care consistently scores off-the-charts in patient satisfaction. When people finally try chiropractic care, learn how and why it works, and experience the health improvements it offers, there is a profound change in how they think about their health and their health care. What stimulated this question, you ask? This fantastic testimonial we received:

“Never before in my life have I ever looked forward to going to the doctor… until now. I definitely feel better after my visits, everything is in place, and I am relaxed. I am extremely pleased with the care I have received in your office. Everyone is warm and caring and I feel very ‘at home!’ I would absolutely recommend your office to anyone and everyone seeking chiropractic services. I can’t thank my friend enough for referring me to your office. Dr. Gray and his staff should all have awards for the wonderful work they do. I can’t say enough good things about my experience here! Thank you, thank you, thank you from one very satisfied and grateful customer!” – Minda

Now, THAT is awesome! I’m so humbled when we get testimonials like this. Unfortunately, only about 10% of the population participates in chiropractic health care. Think of how many more people could be helped if only someone would refer them to a good chiropractor. Which one are you? If you’re not a chiropractic patient, it’s time. If you are a chiropractic patient, tell someone else and encourage them to try it out. Most who aren’t chiropractic patients are either afraid or uninformed about how safe and effective it is. Let’s get the word out, and spread the benefits of chiropractic care. (for a few other cool benefits, click here)

See you soon! – Dr. Gray

Soldier’s Traumatic Brain Injury – Testimonial

Posted by Dr. Gray on Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Gray Testimonial LogoFiled under “Absolute Humility” comes this fantastic testimonial I received from a man I truly admire. Enjoy:

     I was deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom from July, 2005 to November, 2006. During my deployment, I was involved in a few roadside bombs. One of these bombs knocked me unconscious and I was in and out of consciousness for 18 hours. This caused some slight brain damage known as “Traumatic Brain Injury,” or “TBI.” Upon returning to the United States, I was told that the condition was something I was going to have for the rest of my life. It was causing me debilitating headaches, to the extent that they would literally put me on my knees. Again, I was told this was a side effect of TBI and there was nothing that could be done.

     I decided to try a chiropractor and Dr. Gray had been highly recommended to me, so I decided to give him a try. Dr. Gray took the time to understand what I was going through and explained what he was going to do. In the matter of one adjustment, I could feel all of the pressure in my neck and head dissipate. Dr. Gray completely relieved me of the problem that was causing my severe headaches. Since I have started coming to him in 2007, I have not had a headache of the magnitude that I had before him. Thanks to Dr. Gray, I am finally able to get back to a normal routine without the use of prescription medicine.

WOW!!! Talk about a humbling testimonial! I can’t begin to describe how much I wanted to be able to help this man when he was first referred to me. After hearing his story, I immediately thought, “Please, Lord, let my care be the treatment he needs. Let me help this hero who has sacrificed to protect my family and made it possible for so many of us to live care-free.”

It’s incredible, but this soldier not only fought off the nasty effects of TBI, but has gone on to become an elite member of one of the most feared law enforcement and security forces protecting our homeland on a daily basis. I’m proud to say that we remain friends today, and he still comes in for a treatment when he comes to town. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work with and help so many people in this world.

To my friend… Oooooorahh!!!

Why Didn’t I Try This Sooner? – Testimonial

Posted by Dr. Gray on Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Gray Testimonial LogoMan, I love what I do! Check this out:

Dear Dr. Gray,

     My dad had never been to a chiropractor before. After retiring from decades as a heavy equipment operator, his back pain was getting so bad that he moved in with my husband and I. After seeing the relief my husband (who had previously refused to go to a chiropractor) was getting, we were able to talk him in to coming to meet you. After beginning treatment with you, he began to have relief for the first time in years. He swore from that point on that he would not miss an appointment with you. He knew he was getting relief from the pain he had suffered with for so long, and he knew where that relief was coming from. So you see, I’m so grateful to have had a doctor that could help out… They both really loved you, Dr. Gray.

Thanks again, – name withheld for privacy

How can you not be excited to go to work when you get things like this? I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to help so many people. I absolutely love getting testimonials like this.

You want to hear the best part? I received the above unsolicited testimonial a few years after the men she was referencing had passed. There are so many times we go through the motions of our daily lives without fanfare. Without accolades. Without thanks. Without reward. Often, we place too much focus on how our actions are benefiting ourselves… when our true focus should be on how our actions are benefiting others. There is no better reward than finding out years later how you were a positive influence on someone else without even knowing.

Influence can go both ways… positive or negative. Treat every moment, every day, every interaction as if it were the most important thing you can do. You never know who you’re influencing, and you darn sure don’t want to miss an opportunity to make the right impression!

Great Testimonial! – Knee Pain – Thanks!

Posted by Dr. Gray on Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Gray Testimonial LogoWe often get testimonials in office and from emails. I’m going to start posting a few so you can see some of the results we are getting for a wide variety of conditions. If you wish to submit your own testimony of your results at Gray Chiropractic, please send them from our contact page (Click Here).

Here’s a testimonial that we just received the other day:

I would like to thank Dr. Gray and staff for offering me an alternative solution for my knee pain other than “no activities for who knows how many weeks”. I’m an active woman who didn’t want to settle with any down time due to my knee pain. Dr. Gray used the infra-sound machine on the problem area, and I must say after a few visits, no more knee pain! Also, kudos to your friendly staff. I’m a believer. Dee

Thank you so much for those kind words, Dee! We are so happy that we’ve been able to help!

While not all cases respond as quickly as Dee’s, we’ve got a wide selection of treatment options that we can choose from in order to address your specific condition. In the past month, we’ve had the pleasure of treating a whole host of knee complaints, such as: degenerative arthritis, chondromalacia patella, Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, sprained medial meniscus, sprained lateral collateral ligament, and more. On some cases, we’ve used infrasound. Some have responded to traditional chiropractic care. Some have done well with acupuncture. For others we’ve used ultrasound, rehabilitative exercises, etc. Often, the best results involve a combination of treatment options.

We would love the opportunity to work with you, too. If you’ve got knee pain, or other health conditions that we can help you with, please feel free to contact us.

– Dr. Gray
