Like many of the other reviews, the headache given by the billing department and Dr. Buettner herself was worse than myactual back pain itself. I was quoted at a specific rate per visit based on being an Anthem BlueCross member and an in network contract agreed upon rate. Dr. Buettner used her price explanations to dig at the fact that she isn't getting paid enough - ridiculous since she gives less than 10 minutes of work to each patient. Also, her lack of ability to make money after 30 years in the industry really shouldn't be my problem as a patient. I did services between October and December of 2018. In January I received a bill for an additional amount of money due to error on this side. When I tried to call and figure it out, I got a snappy response from Dr. Buettner herself. Throughout the whole chiropractic process, Dr. Bruttner was always unclear and vague, leaving me without much success in care. My back is generally better but it hurts from time to time and they gave me no clear long term instructions besides stand up straight and dump more money into this dumpster fire. This experience has been frustrating and I'd like to warn against anyone using her services to avoid the headache. I would never go here again based on my experience billing. Unprofessional all around from treatment to billing.

About Dr. Jacalyn Buettner

Dr. Buettner became interested in chiropractic after sustaining a back injury when she was 13 years old. After many years of being told by medical doctors and physical therapists to take medications, do exercises, and learn to live with the pain, she met a chiropractor, Dr. Jon Blossom, who offered her an alternative solution. Chiropractic helped her so much she knew she wanted to help others the way Dr. Blossom helped her. This began her journey—she graduated cum laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in March 1985. Having grown up in a small town in Ohio, Dr. Buettner realized her childhood dream of being a big city career girl, like Mary Tyler Moore, when she opened her office at 450 Sutter, the prestigious medical dental building in the heart of Union Square. With more than 33 years of hands-on clinical experience, Dr. Buettner has the ability to tune into a person’s body, locate where the nerve energy is blocked and restore the energy flow through gentle treatment customized to the individual's needs. This process is similar to turning the power on—a way of activating the body’s innate healing potential to bring back a state of balance.

Dr. Buettner seems like an accomplished Chiropractor, but she seemed way too focused on business and not enough on treatment. I'm sitting in her office, and she doesn't want to tell me any advice on how to better my posture oroverall spinal health. Instead she wanted to up-sell me to come back many times in the future. I hope this isn't status quo for chiropractors.

This would be a positive recommendation apart from the fact that I left with far more severe neck, back and spinal pain than I started with. Dr. B is really nice and seems genuinely caring, if not a little rushed sometimes.However, the fact that I'm a lot worse off now is really the core of the 1 star review
