While Dr. Audra Baker was very kind and seemed understanding, she gave me very bad medical advice. She said to use heat therapy on my sore back and that it would be ok to make my upcoming 4-hr drive. When I got to my location I was in more pain than ever and sought out local care. This DC said that I should be icing my back for 20 minutes on 60 minutes off and that driving was one of the worst things I could do.
In addition, Dr. Baker said my pelvis was twisted and did some minor manipulations. The DC I am currently seeing has scheduled an MRI and believes that I have a herniated disc. Dr. Baker's diagnosis and treatment really didn't help at all and could have potentially made my condition worse.

We have taken this review to Dr. Audra, as we are sorry to hear you were disappointed in your visit and that you didn't feel well after. She felt her Report to you was thorough and accurate. The DC you are seeing if he/she would like can consult with Dr. Audra at any time, she will be available to take their call. The heat she felt wasn't a contraindication, it is always best when getting other Dr's reviews that the Dr's communicate with each other to understand why the other Dr did what he/she did. Again we are sorry to hear of your complaint, but would love the opportunity to try and help you or the Dr you are seeing understand our position. All our best. Pavlik Chiropractic
