Chiropractor of the Year 2009

chiropractor of the year


I have been going to Dr Berry for years and he is the best chiropractor I have ever found. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional I never have to wait for long periods of time in his office and he is so kind. He has treated me when I have been pregnant as well and it has helped me immensely. His prices are very affordable and his staff is top notch. Every time I leave his office I feel energized and so much better it is worth every penny. I would highly recommend Dr Berry to anyone.

"I had a great experience at La Costa Chiropractic while dealing with severe back pain. A friend recommended Dr Berry to me and I am so grateful I listened to her. I was greeted by a very friendly staff which was much appreciated and was seen quickly. I was given great treatment and advice by Dr Berry not only for my back pain but for overall wellness to improve my back for years to come. I feel great!

Dr. Berry is the BEST! I've always had problems with my back ,and ear infections before I met Doctor Berry, now ever since I've been under his care I FEEL GREAT! Thank you Dr. for all you do for patients like me... You are TRULY APPRECIATED!

"I heard about La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness from a co-worked and his wife who have been patients for a couple of years. I first came in because another friend became a patient and highly recommended that I visit the office, due to my complaints of headaches and lower back pain. Since beginning chiropractic care, my improvements have been gradual and constant. However if I don't follow through with the recommended stretches and exercises, I can really feel and "pay" the difference between appointments. I enjoy the convenience of early a.m. appointments and the entire staff is very pleasant. I also enjoy the "seasonal" promotions, contests and donation drives to assist the local community and don't forget the educational wellness seminars too!"

"I first heard about La Costa Chiropractic & Wellness from a friend and first came in because of lower back pain. Since beginning chiropractic care, my improvements have been resulting in a higher quality of life. I would recommend Dr. Berry to anyone in San Diego. I have tried other doctors but no one has done a better job than Dr. Berry"

I have known Dr. Berry and the staff at La Costa Chiropractic for over five years now...and I can attest to the healing abilities and his caring attitude. I was not a true believer in this type of care until meeting and expirencing Dr. Berry's "healing hands". Is WOW good enough of a word?! Because that's just how I felt after my first session. No more nagging aches...no more feeling old...just feeling great! One note here...I have been to other providers in this field and always walked away with a feeling of "oh well'. There is a huge difference in technique within this field of doctors just like any other...glad I found Dr. Berry and his team.

It was important to me to send to you this e-mail regarding my recent visit to your office on Friday the 23rd of September.  I was driving to San Clemente for a morning meeting with a customer.  I knew that I needed an adjustment.  I called your office at approximately 10 minutes before 8:00 a.m.  Sheila answered the phone.  I asked her, if it was possible to get an appointment with you and that I needed to walk out of the door by 8:45 a.m.  She said that she would make it happen.  I arrived a few minutes later and I was put ahead of other patients that were in your waiting room.  I received the pre-treatment and then an adjustment by you.  I walked out at 8:45 a.m. and I was on time for my meeting.  I would like to thank you and your entire staff for going above and beyond the call of duty for me that day and delivering a level of customer service that sets you apart from the others.  I would like to mention all of them by name, however, I cannot, as I may forget someone.  Again, many thanks to all!                                                                                                         

 Best regards,
