Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Takacs "A quest to find a better treatment success with musculoskeletal injuries, my interest was piqued on the movement concept of Spacial Dynamics. I am extremely impressed with the benefits of this modality. I invested the time to do the 5 year training and graduated from the SDI institute in 1999. I am blessed to have a wonderful treatment team at the clinic. The primary care focus of my physician colleagues helps to keep my awareness of new treatments in primary care. I am board certified in Anthroposophical Medicine and provide this holistic extension of medicine for those adults and children requesting that approach."

Won't listen to worker's comp patients at all. She will scoff at your questions and close your case regardless of the severity of your injury. No integrity.

I have been coming to see Dr. Joan for years now. She is the only doctor I have found who can adjust me using muscle manipulation. For those that are unable to have "force" chiropractic this is your best option. The only downside is the drive from Wilsonville but it's worth every penny.

She works for the insurance company, not the patient.
