Very personable, great staff. I stopped going because I started hearing horror stories about the risks that can occur withan unfortunate chiropractic adjustment & saw someone experience it. But if you don’t care about that and still swear by chiropractics, then Dr. Cesak is great!

I was very surprised at how cluttered the office was. The waiting room, as well as his personal office. It was way too cluttered to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. I was also put off by his lack of understanding and empathy. I feel like he was treating me like a body and not an actual person. He was also very short with me. I would sometimes get off track because of my ADD, and he would snap slightly at me. There are much better ways to redirect. He also felt it appropriate to ask me in the waiting area as well as I his office as to why I was Medicare. When I was asking a question about the paperwork I was filling out, he said right out loud for anyone to hear, "Oh, you're the one on Medicare?" I felt like it was inappropriate, and very close to violating my privacy. Then back in his office, he proceeded to say, "Medicare. So I assume you're on disability because of your ADHD?" It doesn't matter why, and I really feel like that's outside of his need to know. It is completely irrelevant. I simply said "No, it's in regard to something else." I avoided his prodding for a few minutes, and then finally he pushed me into telling him why I was on Medicare/Disability. He excused it, saying he needed to know everything. It was for a reason that I felt was very personal. My closest family doesn't even know why. My mom and dad, and my doctor. I really don't think it is anyone else's business. Especially not a doctor who is completely unrelated to the situation. Anxiety and PTSD are nowhere near chiropractic. And they are not his business, nor does he have any right or privilege to know. I was so uncomfortable after that, that none if the remaining appointment time mattered. I haven't been sore at all since I was in a little over a week ago. But I would rather feel good inside as well, and I wasn't. I felt very uncomfortable. With him knowing, yes. But also the way he pushed and pushed until he got the information he wanted from me. I was so offended and embarrassed and uncomfortable. The adjustment was just fine. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing spectacular either. Just decent. But I will not be back. I was just way too uncomfortable and I feel like he was very close to crossing some lines.

This was my first visit to a chiropractor, and I was very skeptical. The first thing that impressed me was the time he took reviewing my history. He was more thorough than any MD that I have seen for the same problem. Second, his physical examination was thorough, and he didn't act rushed. He is also very flexible with appointments. All I have to do now, is wait and see if the treatment works.

I had a great experience. It's amazing what some simple maneuvers can do to drastically increase the ease of movement and flexibility. Found out I was incredibly misaligned due to bad sitting and sleeping habits. Felt amazing, but if you're prone to back spasms, maybe deep tissue massage isn't the way to go. For me, at least, it instigated a back spasm and had to get realigned again, as Dr. Cesak generously did. Great experience, prices were reasonable, and I already booked my next appointment!

I made an appointment with Dr. Cesak because of the good reviews on ZocDoc but after meeting with him, I was not satisfied at all. Dr. Cesak seemed like he just wanted to do anything to charge me a really high price for any service I received. When I would ask if he believed his treatment options would heal me, he was never sure or convincing. He recommended I try the cheapest procedures first, which were less likely to help me, so he can then recommend the more expensive treatment and see if that would help a bit. This way he would earn more, and maybe maybe help. No confidence at all. He made it seem like I was just wasting his time there. Not happy about the service.

I've had chronic neck pain since I broke my C-2 vertebra in 1992. The knots accumulated over the decades...oh the knots!!! With just TWO treatments (with two 15-minute messages paid out of pocket by his licensed masseuses) my neck/shoulders have been PAIN-FREE for the FIRST TIME in 24 YEARS without the need of medication/alcohol!!!! I am so VERY pleased :)

I had to wait a while to even get out of the waiting room but once I did, everything went very quick and every body that works there is extremely friendly and personable. They said that this was a rarity that I had to wait so long; they had to reschedule all the morning appointments to the afternoon and they were running behind. I will go back again.

One thing I realized is the doctors here have time to listen you and try to know the exact problem before they touch you. They have several equipments and I think doctors are well aware of what they are doing. I never been to Chiropractor before and I feel good about it now. They are also very clear on letting you know about your insurance coverage beforehand which is a plus. I am happy that I visited this place. Only -ve was it is a busy place and sometimes Dr Cesak won't have time to see you. But, other doctors are as good I suppose.
