This was my first chiropractic appointment ever and I did not know what to expect. I schedule this appointment largely as a preventative measure - I do not suffer from any active aches, but I was interested to see if Icould still benefit. I don't know if this was a particularly high volume day or not, but it felt more like procedures were done to me than my health was addressed. Dr. Dagostino did some basic range of motion checks, administered an electric massage, did some realignments, and then told me I should come back 3-4 times in the next 2 weeks (!) - even after remarking that she did not see any major problems. Yes, this treatment requires routine adjustment for the effects to sustain, but I didn't feel as if I learned about the treatment, any preventative measures I could take to further strengthen myself, or that Dr. Dagostino really got to know or understand my needs. If you have specific pain and are not able to do any strengthening by yourself, maybe Dr. Dagostion would be perfect for you, but if you are just interested in exploring chiropractic, this may not be your best first stop.

I was greeted in a rude, brusque manner, handed a laptop and told to fill out forms. That's expected in a doctor's office, but the kicker was at the end when I was asked to sign, sight unseen but for aone-line description, of agreements and consents. I told the receptionist I wanted to see what I was signing and a copy of anything I signed. This completely flummoxed her and the attitude became confused when I told her yes I wanted to read everything before I signed it. I read through the material. I found quite a few things to which I would NOT consent, but there is no opportunity to notate a phrase or part to which you object. There is a serious emphasis, in my opinion, on financial obligations and I got a very uneasy feeling all along that my personal medical information could very well be up for sale or sharing with third parties I would NOT consent to sharing with. I told the receptionist that I would NOT be consenting to treatment by this doctor, that I really only had come for massage, not chiro (apparently massage therapists operate out of that office independently, something I was not aware of when booking). I asked if a massage therapist, should I come back, would need all the personal info I had just entered and was told they wouldn't. So I asked that my info be deleted from their database. This really flummoxed the receptionist and she said she had to "ask the doctor." The doctor came out eventually and was told about my request. Upon hearing I was not keeping the appointment she turned her back, did not address me at all, and said she'd have to "ask the tech guy" since they never had that happen before. I said I'd check back in a week. PEOPLE CHECK WHAT THEY WANT YOU TO SIGN, IT IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT AND THEY ARE NOT TRANSPARENT ENOUGH. .

Super disrespectful. Also disagreed with 5 physicians I have seen. Put down the medical approaches of other countries calling them stone ages. Bedside manner was awful. Used scare tactics. Stay away

Great doctor. She was attentive and not rushed. The visit took a while to actually be seen but apparently ZocDoc had some sort of error so she was squeezing me in. The office is across from the Library in Copley Square- nice view of the BPL and the Hancock Tower

I sat in the waiting room for 45 minutes before I was seen by Dr. Dagostino. She then came in talked to me for a few minutes and had me change into a gown (which I was not comfortable with). Ithan waited another 15 minutes for her to come back into the room. She set me up with electric stimulation and after doing that for 10 minutes it took another 15 minutes for her to come back and actually adjust me. She never explained what she was doing or where she was putting the electrodes for the electric stimulation.

Dr. Dagostino was very professional, personable, knowledgeable and effective. She took time to explain the "why" and "how". I appreciated that she takes a holistic approach, not simply prescribing a treatment without explanation or other supporting exercises/stretches. Thank you for a great first visit--I look forward to the next!
