“I got involved in chiropractic for my own back injury. I played golf for Mississippi State and played professional golf for eight years. I injured my back and got a herniated disc. After weeks of care from multiple orthopedics and physical therapists, as well as taking muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatories, pain killers, steroid injections, massages, acupuncture, and an MRI, I was no better. I found out that [the chiropractor I went to] knew more about backs than anyone else I’d been to. I got really interested in chiropractic myself. Not only have I been studying this for 29 years, but I’ve been treating it for 24 years. I read research papers [about chiropractic care] every day because I just like it. I’ve been in their shoes before, and I know exactly how they feel. I genuinely care and want to get these people out of their suffering and get them back out there. I also generally enjoy people.”

He went on to tell us about how much he loves the work he does:

“I do really love what I do! I have a strong belief in the chiropractic healthcare model.”

We asked what their overall business mission is at Allen Chiropractic, and Dr. Allen told us:

“Our motto is to give, love, and serve out of abundance.”

Building Success And Always Improving

Allen Chiropractic has earned a wonderful reputation, so we were excited to hear about some of the ways they have gotten their name out.

He also does a health-based talk show on SuperTalk.

We asked Dr. Allen what their secret is behind getting all of their excellent online reviews. He said:

“We try to treat everyone the absolute best that we can, with the best possible service we can, and our patients have been very kind to post nice things about us.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Allen Chiropractic has managed to. We asked if Dr. Allen could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Work very hard; learn, and educate yourself every day. You need to get better every day; stay on top of relevant literature; treat people with genuine love and respect, and make yourself available.”

Dr. Allen ended our chat with this helpful piece of advice:

“Proper diet and exercise is the best healthcare you can have.”

We wanted to know was what it is that makes CORE Family Chiropractic stand apart from its competitors. First of all, she told us about her ability to focus on more than just back pain:

“I’ve had a lot of training in taking care of small children, families, and pregnant moms. As a woman, I felt that I’d be able to connect with my patients really well if I learned that type of care. Over the last few years, I’ve been diving into more chronic issues that haven’t been able to be resolved with other treatment.”

She continued by telling us about her small practice and how she is able to create a warm and inviting atmosphere:

“Being a smaller office, I can customize the care I give according to what each patient is needing. I also try and create a family-like atmosphere, which is important.”

“I always ask for reviews because it’s important to have feedback. We want to make sure we are treating everyone great!”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as CORE Family Chiropractic has managed to. We asked if Dr. Josi could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“At the beginning of my third trimester of my second pregnancy, I experienced pain unlike anything I had felt before. My OB shared that my daughter had triggered my sciatic nerve. This has not only limited my mobility, but made walking, sitting, sleeping and breathing truly unbearable. Massage only offered very short-term help, so I sought chiropractic care, and Dr. Psota was a miracle worker!! He would see me as often as needed and not only had me walking again but was able to eliminate my pain entirely within weeks! I cannot thank him enough for making me feel human again and for getting me through my pregnancy pain-free! They have a fantastic, talented group of doctors at Body Basics!!” – Yasamin P.

Not Your Average Chiropractic Clinic

We wanted to learn more about this two-time award winner and how they managed to build such an impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Dr. Jeff Psota, the owner of Body Basics Chiropractic.

Building Success by Treating Patients Individually

Dr. Psota attributes Body Basics Chiropractic’s strong online reputation to their commitment to treating each and every one of their patients individually:

“We strive to make our patients better. Every patient gets what they need instead of the one-size-fits-all treatment. It’s very personalized here. We have four doctors, so it does make it more affordable. We try to treat the spine and the muscles to keep you healthy. We get you out of pain and keep you there by giving you the tools you need.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Body Basics Chiropractic has gotten their name out there through Google Adwords, but most of their business comes from word of mouth.

Every business owner wants to build the kind of online reputation Body Basics Chiropractic has. When we asked Dr. Psota what advice he has for those business owners, he said:

“Put your patients first. The growth is the hard part, because, realistically, you’ve got to make sure that everyone that walks out is happy.”
