My experience was negative and overall rate it a zero. I saw Dr. Joan Takacs on 4/16/20. It was a horrible visit. I felt rushed to leave, and personally, felt that my visit was severely unprofessional and lacked integrity. Other unsettling items were lack of overall comfort and safety at the facility. I did not feel safe during examinations; the clinic looks less than welcoming; and honestly, the clinic mirrored that of an abandoned environment. To say the least, there are many areas of improvements this clinic and its staff need to make.

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.
