I really want to thank Dr. Mindel about his great practice. I was in pain for most of last few years due to injuries in football and other extreme sports. I saw many traditional doctors and chiropractors but did not get much relief from the pain. Someone told me about Dr. Mindel and after a year of dragging my feet, I visited his office. From the moment I entered the office, I felt the peace and caring. His office keeps you calm - great location and great equipment for treatments.

Dr. Mindel gave me a long interview where I could explain to him all my problems, pain and little details that I felt a doctor should know before treating me. Unlike many of his colleagues, he listened and truly absorbed what I had to say. He then created a program for me that truly helped me with all my pain and discomfort.

I am very VERY happy with his advice, treatments, and supplements. I always knew that I should see someone whose practice is holistic in nature and I found one. Thank you very much doctor for your great service but also for the way you treated me as a person and gave me so much personal attention.

It was just great service and even greater advice. Thank you doctor for your treatments. I really feel much better thanks to you. The supplements you suggested truly make a difference for me.

I saw the doctor a few months ago and it took me 4 visits before I realized that this guy was doing nothing but wasting my time and money. Each time I went I had to describe my symptoms the man could never remember who I was.He gave me supplements at a 100% price mark up. I wish I did more research before I visited this man. I came to find out that the cause of the neck tightness I was having was acid reflux due to a sliding hiatal hernia. There's no way he could have been able to diagnose that with his unnecessary chiropractic readjustments and pills. Just Google "The Frederick Mindel Pages" and you'll see what I mean. I highly doubt the validity of all these 5 star reviews.

I just read this article about holistic health. May be your site visitors find it helpful: Source: ezinearticles web site by swamy Health is the concern of all and "Health is Wealth" goes the saying. Everyone wants to be happy and health is the first and foremost condition to happiness, and, yes, happiness is a precondition for health! Thus, it is a nice merry go-around! I don't want to call it a vicious circle, since that connotes a very negative image. Thus is clear that health and happiness go together. Unfulfilled desires lead to unhappiness and unhappiness leads to disease, ill-health, a feeling of being unwell. One should make efforts to either fulfill the desires that can and should be fulfilled or to understand the undesirability of fulfilling the desires (illegal, unethical and immoral) and/or the futility of pursuing desires which are beyond one's reach. This understanding will quickly restore the health, since the unhappiness, which was causing the derangement in health has been removed. Purely physical causes which cause temporary dislocation in one's health are generally easy to correct. For example, a sprained ligament may give discomfort for some time and restrict one's activities but once it is repaired, the person can lead a normal life. But, psychological aspects of one's ill-health, especially in chronic cases, are difficult to correct, since it is difficult to remain optimistic in the face of chronic ill-health. It is also difficult to understand and accept the role of the psychological factors that are contributing to one's physical ill health. However, with proper understanding, and with Divine Grace (Grace of God and Guru), it is possible to change one's outlook on various aspects of life and thus to achieve a better state of health. Even coping with some chronic physical health problems becomes easy when one realizes that disease or ill-health has a clear and definite role to play in one's learning process, called life.

Dear Dr. Mindel, I wanted to write you for a while and thank you for all your help and caring. Before I approached you last year, I was living in pain – day after day! I approached many physicians, nutritionists and other professionals and yet I was not getting any better. It seems that everyone wanted to use the same old approaches that never helped me in the past. But somehow I knew that I can find a professional out there who can truly help me. My best friend’s friend in NY told me about you. And the rest is history. I am taking my time to write this because I truly owe you my peace of mind. I can do almost anything without pain! I even begin taking exercise and dance classes at the gym and wow, I felt no pain. I believe your methods and instructions truly changed my body’s ability to heal itself. But even more importantly, I was touched by your caring and compassion when I needed it most. Could you kindly thank you staff members for me as well, since they are so professional and cari8ng too. From the day 1 that I visited your office, I felt comfortable and in peace. Your staff truly took care of me even when they were busy and I will never forget that. And one last thing. The supplements you suggested really worked for me. I usually don't like to take supplements but I took them anyways and wow - they woked for me. Have a great holiday season and happy happy new year. Yours truly, Angel p.s. Thanks again and again!

Guy is a nut. Plain and simple. I am all for alternative medicine, but what a joke. Initial consultation took 3 minutes and was over $200, with no services rendered. First appt. was 24 hours later and guy had no clue who I was. Tried some generic adjustments and some sort of pressure point hoax with zero results. Never again. I went there to get adjusted, not have my palm read. I am very skeptical of the positive reviews on this site for "Dr" Mindel, as they all occur in batches with very similar english from one time posters. Buyer beware

As a runner, my overall health was fine. What i was having a problem with though was my right knee and achilles tendon. I injured them in a race and they were not getting better. I began seeing Dr. Mindel at my girlfriend's recommendation-after experiencing the discomfort/pain for about sIx weeks. In the past when I had injured my Achilles tendon I had only tried to stop running and see if it would heal on its own. I went to several doctors who told me they could do nothing for me and to just rest it. Seeing Dr. Mindel was a great experience. He found tightness elsewhere in my legs (i.e. calves) and also re-adjusted my calves and thighs so they would better support my knees and Achilles tendon. And it only took a few sessions. I would highly recommend other runners with similiar / muscle injuries to at least try Dr. mindel. You have nothing to lose - but the pain you are experiencing!

I have suffered from sensitive skin ever rsince I can remember. Breakouts, hives, severe eczema, rashes, swelling.. I have tried strong medicine, the fancy doctors, the over the counter products...Nothing worked. After many trials and tribulations,I came knocking at Dr. Mindel's door. Unlike all the other treatments I had tried, this treatment did not claim to be an overnight process. It required patience, awareness and making adjustments in my diet. But it was also exciting to see my skin and body "calm down" albeit it slowly but surely. II stopped reacting to everything, and things only got better. I've been happy as can be ever since. After 10 years of frustration, he has "cured" me with much success, in a kind and understanding manner. I would definitely recommend Dr. Mindel to all the people I love and to anyone that has been struggling for years and has lost hope.

I reached down to pick up a bag a month ago, heard a noise, and was stiff and in pain when i stood up. I was recommended to Dr. Mindel by a woman I work with. I had no idea what to expect in the way of results or process. I saw him the day it happened and the day after, and three visits after that spaced out over about a month. The first day there ws about a 50% improvement, and the subsequent day made me feel even better, maybe 75%. By the next visit after the weekend i felt almost totally better. What was surprising to me was that the treatment seemed so gentle -- I had visions of having my bcak repeatedly cracked, but not once did he do so. It felt like he was gently feeling parts of my back and touching pressure points--so I was literally amazed that I felt good so fast and that what seemed like minimally invasive pressure worked so well. If I hadn't experienced this myself I'd be skeptical, as I know it sounds illogical that it could work so quickly. I'd recommend him to anyone i know with back or neck issues, and in fact already have.

My daughter had been suffering from menstrual cramps since she got her first period 4 years ago. Midol and Advil did nothing. Hot water bottles, bedrest, homeopathic remedies and red raspberry leaf tea provided occasional relief but hardly an improvement. The pains seemed to worsen with time. I felt helpless but knew that going to a GYN would most likely have her on birth control. Then I thought of 'applied kinesiology' and how it had dramatically solved a 5 year digestive issue I had when mainstream medicine found no solution. I wondered if this could help my daughter's condition also. We had just moved to NYC, so I found Dr. Mindel through an internet search where I read grateful reviews from his patients. My daughter had gone to Dr. Mindel for only weeks when she got her last period. It actually surprised her and came without warning as SHE WAS COMPLETELY CRAMP FREE!! First time ever!!! And she is feeling better on every level, emotionally and energetically as well. Thank you Dr. Mindel. We are very glad we found you!

Almost two years ago I was diagnosed from an MRI with a cervical herniated disc in two locations. The pain I experienced on the left side of my body was at times unbearable. The pain radiated down from my neck into my shoulder and down my arm to my fingers. At times it also radiated into my shoulder blade and upper back. My symptoms included weakness on my left side and at times numbness and tingling in my fingers. My neurologist prescribed pain medication which numbed the pain but made me very drowsy and spacey. I had difficulty concentrating and the pain and discomfort began to define who I was. My neurologist told me I had a chronic condition that would be with me off and on for the rest of my life. He told me that if it did not resolve, surgery was an option. When I first heard about Dr. Mindel, I questioned if he could help my condition. I was desperate and could not continue on the pain killers. At first I saw Dr. Mindel weekly for about eight weeks. Slowly the pain and discomfort subsided. Today I am virtually pain free and I take no medication whatsoever. I see Dr. Mindel about once a month to make sure the pain does not return. I am very grateful for all Dr. Mindel has done for me. I would recommend Dr. Mindel to anyone who suffers from any type of chronic pain

I first heard about Dr. Mindel from a friend who had been seeing him for vocal problems and was wildly enthusiastic about the results that he had gotten in a short period of time. Understanding Dr. Mindel's approach to be a holistic one, I decided to see if he could help me with a chronic digestive disorder I had been dealing with for over 10 years. I had been to traditional western doctors (who said here was nothing wrong with me), as well as homeopaths, naturopaths and chiropractors with whom I had some success, but no real lasting recovery. Rarely did I experience a 'normal' day when I did not have to think about stomach pain, or experience a really debilitating flare-up. From my first visit with Dr. Mindel I noticed a difference in my general feeling of wellbeing immediatelly after treatment. Every subsequent visit has had the same result- no matter how I am feeling when I arrive at the office, by the time I am back downstairs I feel significantly better. Now, after only 8 weeks of treatment I am feeling like a new person, no more stomach pain in the morning, no more constant awareness that something is wrong with my digestion. Already I feel 11 years younger! Dr. Mindel has managed in a short period of time to restore me to a point of health that I had almost given up on ever experiencing again.

I decided to visit Dr. Mindel after I had been experiencing problems with ovulatory pain and ovarian cysts for several months. My ob/gyn had insistd that the only way to overcome the problem was to use birth control pills and I wanted to find a more holistic and natural approach to my problem. After doing some research, I stumbled upon Dr. Mindel's website and decided to visit him. I was a little skeptical at first but I was anxious to find a remedy for my problem. During my first visit, Dr. Mindel was able to quickly assess my problem and outlined a treatment program that not only focused on diminishing the cyst and the ovulatory pain, but also one that focused on bringing my body into balance to prevent further problems. Dr. Mindel put me on a multi-vitamin regimen that quickly resolved my issures in a matter of days. I was elated and relieved that I found a solution to my problem that did not require prescription drugs or surgery. To this day, I continue to see Dr. Mindel for different ailments and have been continually satisfied with my results. I make it a point to recommend his practice to anyone who is open to a more natural, holistic approach to medicine.

I originally came to see Dr. Mindel because of severe abdominal distress that had been bothering me for almost two weeks. I have had a lot of digestive issues my entire adult life: chronic heartburn, bloating sensations, alternating bouts of constipation and diarrhea, acid reflux, etc. I had always resorted to over the counter remedies, although during one or two occasions, i underwent GI tests that revealed nothing serious,In addition to this, i had a long history of high blood pressure for which I was on an ACE inhibitor. I also suffered from chronic post-nasal drip that interfered with my work as a singer. At my first visit with Dr. mindel he advised me that I had a fungus or mold infection of my digestive tract and gave me several supplements and put me on a restricted diet. After a week,the worst of my sysptoms had cleared up and within two weeks, I was experiencing regular bowel movements for the first time in many years. Dr. Mindel also helped me with problems of dizziness, post-nasal drip. and high blood pressure.I stopped using my other medications and my most recent blood pressure was 110/63. In a little over two months i am feeling better than I can recall for most of my adult life.

I have struggled with a weak immune system most of my life, since I was a young teenager. A few years ago I caught herpes and went through a tremendous amount of stress. I was diagnosed by a western doctor and tried the prescriptions medication. i didn't like it at all. It made me nauseous and fuzzy and a bit sick. So I tried the alternative route. After a lot of searching and experimenting without much luck, I found Dr. Mindel online. I have been seeing him for over a year now. I saw a change right away. He focuses on the whole self and building and strengthening the immune system. My herpes outbreaks are ceasing and my energy is higher than it has ever been. I am still learning and working on de-stressing, and it is happening. I trust Dr. Mindel. I wasn't looking for a quick fix. I was really looking for someone who could help me improve my whole self, who would listen to my body and help guide me. And he does just that.

I worked for Dr. Frederick Mindel for over two years, almost twenty years ago. It looks like he is still at it. Dr. Frederick Mindel is a fraud and a danger to his patients. He claimed to be able to treat them for everything and anything. Two of his patients ended up in the hospital while I worked there. One was a woman who came in in severe abdominal pain. She was an african american woman, but when she came in her color was gray and she was in agony. Any fool would have sent her to the ER. He filled her full of 'supplements' and sent her home, on a Friday afternoon, none the less. Her appendix ruptured and she almost died. He never went to visit her in the hospital, even though she was the secretary for one of his 'peers'. That shows that he has no shame. Another woman came in with a raging bladder infection which he said he could treat. She was hospitalized with a kidney infection after that went bad. He routinely sold patients hundreds of dollars of supplements, none of which he kept track of. He was unable to read his own handwriting so he was unable to check their records. When they would call saying they'd broken out in hives and were vomiting, he would tell them that this was a good sign that they were detoxifying. This happened many times. Dr. Mindel has ZERO integrity. He once asked me to get an xray from one patient, wipe off the name and write another patient's name on it because he couldn't find the xrays he was looking for. I refused. But this is an unbelievable breach of ethics. Frederick Mindel practiced COPIOUS insurance fraud, routinely telling his insurance person to bill for a list of friends and family who had never set foot in the office, often a series of 5 or ten visits. Dr. Frederick Mindel frequently went Atlantic City to gamble, and would get too drunk to return to work. He would show up stinking of alcohol and cigarettes and have me cancel all his patients. Dr. Mindel is a terrible chiropractor. I have been to many chiropractors, and he stinks. He couldn't adjust a neck if his life depended on it. He is rude and domineering, making his patients wait in his waiting room for hours while he sits on his phone yakking. His patients thinks he walks on water and that he can do anything, because that's what he tells them. Many of his patients were too kind and meek to figure it out, or were looking for an authority figure. I always assumed that Frederick Mindel had been dis-barred from his law career. I am happy to see someone came up with this information. I worked for Dr. Mindel when I was young and lacked confidence. If I knew then what I know now, I would have turned him into the authorities. If anyone else has been harmed by this man, they should come forward and press charges. And certainly they should write about it on the internet. I could go on, but you get the idea.

I came into Dr. Mindel's office about a year and a half ago with really bad, uncomfortable indigestion. Never seeing a holistic doctor before, I had no idea what to expect but Dr. Mindel is a nice guy and was able to explain his techniques to me. Prescribing me different supplements over the course of a number of months, he successfully reduced my indigestion by boatloads! I was taking antacids almost every day and now I take them every once in a while. What I learned by going through this process is that there is a place for both holistic and traditional medicine: traditional medicine is a short-term commitment to relieve a problem temporarily but holistic medicine is a long term commitment focused on getting your body to a state at which it won't need medicine. Dr. Mindel's brand of healing is helpful for all different types of problems--I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a permanent, long term solution for feeling better.

I consulted Dr. Mindel upon a friend's recommendation, when I couldn't get a quick enough appointment with my usual chiropractor, who I had been seeing for 15 years. I have been going to Dr. Mindel exclusively, ever since. My chronic back & neck pain is infinitely better. Now through recommended diet adjustments & supplements, my energy is higher & my skin looks better. Best of all, my usual severe monthly cramps have almost completely disappeared! I highly recommend a consultation to address any ailment or dis-ease. His experienced, holistic viewpoint on finding & treating the cause, rather than the symptoms is right on. You have nothing to lose, but your pain!

Due to complications from treatment for cancer I have seen over a dozen alternative doctors in New York. Dr. Mindel has been, and continues to be, the best alternative doctor I have seen. Over time his treatments have helped me with pain, mobility, energy, nutrition and detoxing. I have seen Dr. Mindel for over 15 years. and he is always very generous with his time. His warm manner and encouragement have been so important to me while struggling with my illness. A few years ago I suffered at terrible setback when I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. Dr. Mindel's help was crucial in helping me regain my day-to-day abilities. He is a great doctor!

In 2002 I was rear-ended in a car accident and instead of getting better as time went on, I got worse. I had headaches, burning in my neck and patches of tingling in my legs, arms and side of face. The numbness was so bad that it would wake me up at night. My initial treatments of physical therapy and from my neurologist seemed very cookie cutter. I was prescribed medicine, had MRIs and the general outlook was wait and see, no one could give me any answers. Through a friend, I received the name of a physical therapist that was very holistic and taught the importance of correct body mechanics. He in turn, referred me to Dr Mindel. Almost immediately I had relief from many of my symptoms. He took the time to really listen to what was wrong and also to help me let my body heal in a natural way. It was very important to me to get rid of the problem and not cover it up with medicine. I have energy and the fear of permanent, chronic pain doesn't exist anymore. I have been going to Dr. Mindel for 5 years now and I am very thankful that I found him.

I have been seeing Dr. Mindel for 4 ? years and I honestly cannot imagine what the state of my body and health would be like without him. He has helped me eliminate chronic pain in my hands, arms and shoulders. Seeing him regularly keeps my body strong and energetic and eliminates the negative effects of stress on my system. And now as a runner he is helping me to stay structurally and nutritionally strong so I can run at my top performance. And his office is peaceful, well-run and a pleasure to be in. How many doctor?s offices can you say that about? I highly recommend his practice.

I've been going to Dr. Mindel for about 7 years. Over that time, he has not only helped me to overcome chronic hip and knee pain, but has helped me to address other health issues such as allergies, chronic respiratory problems, weight, acne, and anything else that has come up along the way. He has helped me to see the connection between my diet, mental and emotional states, and my body so that ailments that would normally be treated with antibiotics and other prescription medications can be treated and healed with nutrition and self-awareness. His approach is unusual and, to some degree, shocking, but it works better than any traditional methods I have found. To those who are commited to really healing and not just treating symptoms, he is a godsend.

I went to Dr.Mindel for back pain and some other health issues I've had over the past few year. During the consultation, he was optimistic about my problems and was certain he could help me. When he diagnosed me through applied kinesiology, I asked him if he could explain how it all worked... but he just kept going with his diagnosis and just ignored my questions. I was a bit annoyed but decided to give him a chance. I went to see him about 10 times and I have to say there wasn't such improvement. Every time I went to see Dr.Mindel, I had to explain my symptoms and my situation all over again. He alleviated my back pain, but my other health issues were not addressed. I think in some ways, they got worse. He gave me different herbal medicine to try and nothing worked. Does he ever listen when you talk? I think he is a decent chiropractor, but he should stay away from herbal treatments... I don't think he is even a certified herbalist.

I've been seeing Dr. Mindel for over 20 years. I've gone to him for a variety of ailments including back pain, stress, tennis elbow and allergies. In fact, I would go to Dr. Mindel for any health issue I have. No matter what the problem, Dr. Mindel has always been able to help me. He is committed to finding the cause of the problem and not just masking the symptoms with medicine. I've also send numerous friends, family and colleagues to see him and everyone has always been satisfied with the results. Dr. Mindel practices a variety of holistic approaches including nutrition, accupressure, chiropractry, tbm and more. He is committed to healing his patients and genuinely cares about his patients. Dr. Mindel continues to study and look for ways to heal his patients. I've always been amazed that the Doctor can find the problem and then make me feel better with a slight adjustment or by touching/pushing a particular spot on my body. It truly is facinating how he is able to help me and others with his holistic approach. I would highly recommend Dr. Mindel to anyone who is looking to improve their health or cure a particular health problem. Dr. Mindel is a remarkable holistic health care practitioner.

I first came to see Dr. Mindel 8 years ago when I was experiencing severe joint pain, spasms of the back muscles and exhaustion due to a combination of an arthritis flare up and depleted adrenal glands. I was immediately struck by two things during the treatment: my severe pain and spasms were greatly alleviated right away, and his use of Kinesiology was the most brilliant and natural of approaches. And I've verified many times since that the responses Dr. Mindel receives are accurate. Regular spinal adjustments keep my spine limber; a recent spinal x-ray showed little or no deterioration of the joints. He has also cured two difficult conditions: carpal tunnel, which went away after two months of treatment, and psoriasis, which has virtually disappeared. He is also able to alleviate cold and flu symptons naturally and very quickly. I consider my visits to Dr. Mindel to be the single most important aspect of managing my varied conditions. His flexible, natural, caring approach gives me the best health care I have ever found.

My back pain has caused me such unbelievable distress for the past several years, that you can't imagine how elated I was to find the pain dissolve within 24 hours of visiting Dr. Mindel! The pain that was once so debilitating is now so much more manageable, to the point that I think something's missing - then I realize...the pain has faded. Thanks to Dr. Mindel! Dr. Mindel's holistic approach is very effective and his results can often be felt immediately. As with any holistic care service it helps to be receptive and to keep an open mind. If you're unsure to certain procedures or terminology, I've always found Dr. Mindel's genial assistant Nancy, available to answer any concerns. All in all it makes visiting 'the doctor' a fun experience with results.

I have been Dr. Mindel's patient for a year now. 2005 was a very stressful year and after a bout with shingles (I was 52 at the time) I needed to deal with my health. My livelihood as a banker depends upon clear, quick thinking and communicating precisely. In addition to the stress from the prior year, my manager had also expressed concern about my lack of focus, memory problems, inability to concentrate and to concisely express myself. I was very frustrated. I could not even remember what had just been said to me, things were hazy. I was fatigued a lot. After the first visit or two wtih Dr. Mindel, I began to feel better right away. He worked on different underlying issues and though my thinking was better it wasn't quite up to snuff. Work was still overwhelming me. I even had my hearing checked to ensure that it was not a source of the problem. Dr. Mindel recommend some tests for brain function, which helped to target those key areas that really needed help. Since beginning the new treatment last fall, the haze has cleared, I feel sharp and more positive. My memory has improved tremendousely. Of course I still need to write things down because of the fast-pace environment but the difference is notable. At the time I did not even realize I was suffering from a mild depression. Everytime Dr. Mindel asked if I felt depressed, my answer was no. After a few weeks on the new nutritional supplements it occured to me that I am indeed more happy and light hearted. It was amazing. Thank you, Dr. Mindel for hanging in there with me and being persistent with finding the answers I needed for better health. I am so grateful.

Dr. Mindel did what no other doctor, prescription medications or traditional procedures could do, he cured me of the ulcerative colitis that Ive been suffering from for over six years and completely changed my life. I had a serious case of ulcerative colitis, where at one time I was hospitalized for two weeks and lost 40 lbs (1/4 of my body weight). No treatments except for high dosages of steroids could keep my colitis in check for long, but while I was on the many prescription medications I suffered from a wide range of side-effects ranging from fatigue to depression. After only a few weeks of seeing Dr. Mindel and following the dietary and holistic supplement regiment he recommended, I saw dramatic changes in my health and after a few months I have been able to stop taking powerful prescription medications, feel more energetic than ever and my life is no longer controlled my ulcerative colitis. After learning more about Dr. Mindels methodology it became clear how traditional medicine just tries to cover up the symptoms of a disease instead of finding the root of the problem and making changes to a to fix it. I feel so angry at all of the doctors Ive seen over the past six year while I suffered from this terrible disease that dont believe changes in diet or holistic medicine work. I am truly lucky to have found Dr. Mindel because he has made such a huge difference in my life.

Dr. Mindel is intelligent, intuitive, and well-informed. He's notably also a very caring person. In situations where other physicians and specialists are dismissive and fail even to recognize that you suffer from a malaise, Dr. Mindel will address its root cause, and cure you of it. Dr. Mindel comes to healing from a different place, to be sure. My wife and I stand behind him, as he's really done a lot for us. Dr. Mindel has cured us of chronic ailments, physiological discomfort, and emotional agony, where no GP or Specialist before had been able. In my case, he's spared me a surgical procedure (kidney related) that I had been prognosticated to undergo. In my wife's case, he's rid her of two separate chronic ailments (gynecological/urological and dermatological) that no specialist before could resolve. Dr. Mindel practices medicine the way it was meant to be practiced: thoughtfully, patiently, and compassionately.

A friend recommended me to Dr. Mindel when I was experiencing this bizarre case of itching all over my arms that completely baffled the medical doctors I had seen. What greatly impressed me about him initially is that he spent twenty minutes on the phone discussing my condition before I had even made an appointment. I was also feeling very fatigued and had digestive problems. He prescribed some nutritional supplements that immediately increased my energy and within two weeks my stomach problems disappeared. He discovered the underlying cause of my itching and within three weeks, the itching was gone and has never returned. I continue to see Dr. Mindel periodically and have enjoyed excellent health ever since. Since I have been seeing Dr. Mindel, I no longer get sick and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a doctor who can help with a myriad of health problems.

It's rare to find a practitioner like Dr. Mindel who is trained in so many modalities that it makes him truly capable of getting down to the cause of many and most ailments. He is about finding the root of your issue and that is what health care should be about I had a condition that most doctors where completely stumped with and after 1 visit, Dr. Mindel got rid of it. In 5 visits my chronic muscle aches where gone as was the eczema I'd been battling with for years. Also, my last menstrual cycle was the first one I've experienced in ages that was completely symptom free! Overall, I feel he is truly helping my body come to balance and health once again. I highly recommend him not as a chiropractor, but as your general physician.

Since I have been a patient my energy level has sky rocketed, my digestive issues are gone (which is why I went to see him) and overall I feel really good....best part was how quickly I felt better. I have also referred friends for a variety of reasons (skin problems, Candida, allergies) and they all feel better since going to him. My friends rash went away by the third visit and she had gone to so many dermatologists. I strongly recommended him...you do have to be open minded to alternative practices. He uses muscle testing, nutrition, homeopathy and a bunch of other really cool techniques. They all work!
