Dr. Wardwell helped me recover from a wrist injury that kept me from being able to work as a bodyworker. He was able to diagnose injured wrist ligaments using Musculoskeletal ultrasound. Ligaments don't heal well due to poor blood supply. He does a treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) under ultrasound guidance in order to treat each of the sprains and microtears that were causing my wrist pain. He then taped it up to brace it and within a week, I was back to performing muscle work and have been good ever since. At some point I mentioned that I wanted to prevent my hair from thinning and he put me on a regimen of topical and oral supplements and my hair is thicker than ever and I'm even starting develop curls! Recently, I mentioned that I had some scars on my back from Chickenpox as a child. He uses a type of laser that can remove pigment from scarred areas and regenerate normal collagen, called Halo. I was back to work the next day and within 2 weeks I could already see most

Dr. Wardwell returned my life back to normal. I suffered from multiple injuries for many years. After PRP procedure that Dr. Wardwell recommended to me I stoped taking any painkillers and returned back to regular activities: exercise, run, work 8 hours day and no physical therapy needed. Thank you so much! You are the best!

He blocked me from ChiroMedical group. The office lady tried to be nice and squeeze me in when Jake was busy. And Jake talked about another procedure he was in during my visit. But he wanted to treat all of my many injuries. Later, I complained to the office that it was rushed and we did not do enough diagnostics. I asked for a refund. They talked to Dr. Wardwell. After that, he changed his mind to say he could not treat me. Then they all ignored my messages. I did my best to fix the situatio

His office visits cost double what anyone else charges, and he encourages you to keep on coming back - gouging insurance. The place is also set up more like a business vs a medical office. I know they need to turn profits to stay in business, but this is going too far. I'd find a good ethical Dr., not one who wants to maximize his profits and has the office set up more like a for profit business center.
