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 26 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. B is just excellent in every way -- I cannot recommend her highly enough.
She is great, takes very good care of you, understand the problem and able to explain with very easy words. Highly recommended!
She's great at explaining what she is going to do and makes sure you understand! She's also sooo funny!
She was great. Very helpful and knowledgeable. She was able to instantly relieve some of my pain. I look forward to continuing treatments with her.
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 or overall 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.
Dr. Buettner is quick and to the point. She answers any questions you have and had my back fixed in 6 appointments. She was great.
Dr. Buettner was wonderful and very informative!
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
She was so knowledgeable and personable. Great experience- definitely found my new chiropractor!
Can't say enough good things about Dr. B! Always feel better both physically and emotionally after her visit :)
Jacalyn is a great chirorpactor and extremely friendly. I have been seeing her for months and she's absolutely lovely. I will continue to go to her because she's great at what she does, and gets the job done quickly!

Dr. Buettner was great! She explained everything she was doing, and everything she learned from my exam was spot on with the pain I was experiencing. Very honest and open. I'm glad I found her for my first chiropractor appointment, and I've already booked a follow-up.

My visit with Dr. Buettner was beyond excellent. She did a great job explaining what causing my back pain and explaining my treatment options. Overall, her communication was great - she explained each step of the process and paused frequently to allow me to ask any questions. Very approachable, knowledgeable, and most importantly, made my back feel instantly better.
She was very professional and asked a lot of questions. She did a very detailed exam. She helped pinpoint what could possibly be causing my problems and was very much into helping me be at my healthiest by recommending a cleanse and care. Right away I felt so much better after she adjusted me!
When I come see Dr. Buettner I'm usually in a lot of pain and unable to move well. She is very knowledgeable and sensitive! She is able to align your body gently.

Dr. Buettner is always helpful and professional. Highly recommend!
Very good first session. I was able to get immediate relief of pain and hope the next several sessions will help correct the problem permanently.
Great visit. Talked and coached through everything. Very expedient
Easy, Friendly, Good at what she does. Return regularly.
This was my first Chiropractic visit ever. Once I met Dr. B she was great. Asked great questions and really got to know me and my lifestyle. My adjustment went well. Neck was a little sore for a few days after, I had a very powerful, not painful but powerful crack in my neck. A few days later my back is feeling a lot better, I feel looser with greater flexibility. All this after one visit. My only criticism would be the front office experience. First impressions are so important, especially in medical offices for a FIRST timer who was visiting based on a referral from an existing patient. The gal who greeted me seemed cold, disinterested and somewhat rude. No fault to the Dr. but it was not pleasant. Maybe it was her off day, but in a service role, your job is to not have an off day. I am returning despite all.
Great doctor very friendly.
Dr. Buettner was great! Spent a lot of time with me and I'm already feeling better. I would recommend her to my family and friends for sure.
I had a great visit with Dr. Buettner. I'm pregnant and would definitely recommend her to other pregnant women. She spent a lot of time going over my medical history and was kind, patient and thorough, explaining in detail why she was asking certain questions that may have otherwise seemed irrelevant. She's clearly a very experienced practitioner who understands the interconnectedness of all the body systems. She provided a wonderful cushion specifically for pregnant bodies, and I noticed immediate results following the adjustments she made. All in all a great experience!
The doctor was great and very attentive, lots of eye contact. The appointment are very hands-on, the doctor asks for a thorough history but unlike most other doctors that I have seen, follows it up with a physical hands-on assessment that lasts a good 10mins. She found spots that were tight that I had forgotten about and even found some of my old injury sites that I forgot to mention. Quick and accurate adjustments, effective appointment. I'll be back again later this week
She took me in right away when I arrived. She was very thorough without being repetitive with her questions. Using the ultrasound treatment she recommended, I felt my pain subside noticeably within minutes. So far so good!
Loved loved loved it! She was most informative and extremely helpful of putting everything in perspective for me. I will definitely be back as I already feel 1,000 times better! Thank you Dr. Buettner!
I'll definitely go back. Super friendly, caring and gave a great adjustment and advice.
Dr. Buettner is very friendly, knowledgable and personable. I definitely am glad I chose her. I'm feeling 10,000% better after my first appointment!
Dr. Buettner is fantastic. She's engaging and very interested in making sure you get the type of treatment you need.
