What our patients say


Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • I had the privilege of receiving care from Marie and Clair, and I cannot express enough gratitude for their exceptional service. Marie was instrumental in my recovery, both physically and mentally. Her expertise and motivational skills are truly remarkable. She played a huge part in helping me heal.

    Clair's care was equally wonderful. Her kindness, positivity, and friendly demeanor made my experience even better. I appreciate her dedication and the genuine care she showed throughout my time under her care.

    Thank you, Marie and Clair, for your outstanding service. You both are amazing at what you do!

    Staff is always  kind and friendly.

    I highly  recommend!

  • The staff are exemplary and amazing. You feel that you are part of the family. I have been in laser therapy for quite some time and feel like it’s improving and hopefully, completely gone. Dr. Ben (Clark) really assesses the patient, not like a bim bam boom thing. He really examines the patient and analyzes the best treatment for the patient. Staff are approachable and not intimidating. If I had known of the clinic a few years ago I would have definitely come here for treatment. What amazes me

  • A note of thanks (for Mike). Nice (massage therapy) session... indeed drank lots of water. You really blasted things….BUT….no ill effects. Much appreciated. Been on “a table” a “few times” over the years…..and with experience, I can say you are a TRUE PROFESSIONAL at what you do !!!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 l

  • 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. Show More
  • 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 Show More
  • 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. Show More
  • 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.
