Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    "This year I have received several treatments from chiropractic, physiotherapy, rehab, and naturopathic care. Thank you so much for all the professional care. The clinic has a fantastic team working together to make sure all your medical healing needs are me. Greta job everyone, I love seeing the clinic growing in success as these types of services are needed, as it seems people will not slow down and learn to drive properly. I am very interested in the new gym downstairs and love the fact that it is 24 hours. Thank again for all the great service and care. P.S. The vitamins are great quality and a nice touch to be able to buy here."

    Doug B.

    "I first went to the clinic to see Mark Erickson – As I walked through the door I was greeted by a very happy bunch of gals at the front desk, even when they take your money, they are still happy. My first time with Mark was awesome. I have had lower back troubles all my life. Mark is now known to me as miracle Mark. He said I should have decompression which I had 4 times. To the gal’s in the (rack room) good sense of “ha ha” and answered all my questions as they pulled the tie down straps as hard as they can with a big smile on their faces. Mark told me I should get orthotics for my feet. Went to Harris orthotics at the clinic again an awesome experience. Mark said I should have deep muscle massage, so I went to Maria Kirkbride (Ouch) but it works and results have been again, awesome. Who ever set this clinic up gets a big pat on the back from me! I have never had such a good experience in my life from such a happy crew. Thank you."

    Andrew P.

    "Dr. Brown has been my chiropractor for more than 5 years, for firm intense shoulder pain to spine, he always manages to find relief; if not immediately, he won’t stop until it’s 100% cured. I have referred a lot of my friends and bosses to Derek Brown because I trust him."

    Christina M.

    "After much hounding and nagging from my loved ones, customers, and coworkers – I decided to give Woodgrove Pines a try. 1st visit to book my appointment was the biggest challenge (I guess you can say I procrastinate when it comes to taking care of myself). 2nd visit, Dag (Ronhovde – Physio) gave me tools to be a stronger, better me. I’ll be back, teaching client’s how to better manage and use what our moms gave us – How can one deny such an offer? Thank you for giving me tools to live the best me."

    Joanne S.

    "Friendly, professional and helpful staff at reception. All staff willingly answer questions and deal with concerns in a knowledgeable, supportive manner. Cameal (Sinclair – Physio) has a beautiful way of making patients feel comfortable and at ease. She explains what she is doing and why and addresses each concern/question thoroughly. Mike (Joyce-RMT) efficiently responds to my concerns and provides suggestions to help on my recovery."

    Terrill M.

    "I have seen Dr. Gisella Ramon Brown and Dr. Mark Erickson and they have both been amazing in treating my back, neck, and fibula. I only need to see them occasionally now for maintenance. They are amazing and gifted at how they can manipulate the body and make it better."

    Sarah S.

    "The staff are warm, friendly and very customer-service focused. Tammy, my acupuncturist is excellent, both in her acupuncture knowledge and training, and in her warm, caring attitude."

    Christine B.

    "Whenever I “tweak” my back Dr. Ramon-Brown is on my quick dial! Great service."

    Jillian M.

    "Gisella’s (Ramon-Brown - Chiropractor) work and advice are exemplary! Through my many (3-4 years) of trusting her to treat and advise me I have found relief for extreme long term (before coming) shoulder pain from tears. The light laser treatment she recommended has helped with healing after a wrist breakage and shoulder condition! Staff is always sweet and personable."

    Ruth C.

    "I love that Woodgrove Pines offers a wide range of care options – I regularly see a chiropractor, RMT and acupuncturist, and the ability to do it all in one place is fantastic. It makes getting to know my “team” so much easier, not to mention how much less complicated scheduling is! They’ve supported me through various athletic goals, injury recovery and pregnancy. I am thrilled with the service I receive on a (super) regular basis and would recommend Woodgrove Pines to anyone looking to enhance their health."

    Megan L.

    "Meghan Reid has been solely responsible for fixing my severe Achilles tendonitis. I suffered for 2 years despite other forms of treatment but am now pain free. Thanks Meghan."

    Mark L.

    "I would like to thank Mark (Erickson) and Mike (Joyce). Over the past few years I have struggled with back pain and a knee injury due to my active life style. Mark has gone above and beyond, he was able to recommend the treatment I needed along with chiro to get me where I am today. It’s more than just a business or job for Mark, he treats you like a close friend which is very comforting."

    Andrew F

    "Staff was amazing, this is going to be my fourth chiro/laser. I feel a lot better. My leg is starting to be normal again as I had a brutal tailbone injury. I am more comfortable sitting/standing. My injury is getting better daily. My mom referred me, as my father and herself both see Dr. Erickson too."

    Jessica S.

    "I have had the opportunity to work with Dr. Stacey Scott. She not only listens to you…but gets results…unlike others in her field if you tell her it hurts she approaches from another angle… I especially am getting results from the combination of chiropractic and laser therapy. Thank you."

    Wendy B.

    "Over the years this is the best chiropractic treatment I have had. It keeps me mobile. The staff are so nice and it is a pleasant experience to be here."
