Without a doubt, even after reading these reviews, Dr Juergens is THE BEST. Sad to me that so many others had bad experiences!! I have ALWAYS dealt with my back issues in St Louis and have had Great results with treatments. I was told about Dr Juergens, took a chance, and could not be happier at this point. I can see where people judge him for "no bedside manor" however, he is ALL business, and I believe he knows EXACTLY what is right for your problem.

TOTAL dead loss. No compassion,, made me do movements and have his opinion before I'd finished, has no bedside manner. Doesn't listen, avoid this practicer. Use as a last resort but even then, I'd rather suffer. Here's a total. JERK the only licenses he holds are novelty licenses I give him one Star because that's the least there is. If I could do zero star,I would
