Dr. Proodian & Dr. Kurt always look to find and treat the source of the problem rather than just masking the symptoms. An amazing place overall, great staff from the top to the bottom.
Derek T.
The most caring and professional staff in the area. Hands down my favorite place to go for acupuncture and adjustments!
Dave Z.
Very professional, caring, compassionate service. Would highly recommend this group of professionals. Being a healthcare educator, Dr. Proodian is well informed by his research.
Lorraine B.
Natural Healthcare Cebter is a first class operation. They are true professionals and the office is run like a well oiled machine. I have only seen Dr. Kurt and am extremely pleased with his service. I would highly recommend them.
Michael L.
I'm so happy I decided to take this step. I would say, "run, don't walk" to discuss your healthcare plan with Dr. Proodian and Dr. Coetzee (actually, the entire staff is worth mentioning - they are a great team!) Indeed, this is one of the best choices you will make in your life!
Susan M.
I can't say enough about how thankful I am to have been referred to Natural Healthcare. From the moment I called, to my most current appointment this week, Dr.Proodian and his staff have been AMAZING! If you are pregnant and have sciatica, or back issues in general, this is the place to go- you have the opportunity to find relief!
I had pulled out my back due to the stress I had experienced from the overseas trip my wife had gone on. Well since I been going to a chiropractor for over 30 years, I know the benefits of going to one. The Natural Healthcare Center performed the treatment that I needed. Their staff was excellent in addressing my problem and they solved my back situation in the first visit. As they recommended, I went back the following 3 days and was completely healed and that's why I gave them a 5 star rating
Mike L.
I own a personal training studio (Fresh training) and have always been very hesitant in referring my members out for medical support. Dr. Proodian and his staff are at a completely different level then the rest of their field. They give each patient exactly what they need. You can comfortably go with the knowledge that your best health is the centers #1 concern.
Rob L.
Not only is everyone at Natural Healthcare so friendly and caring, they really know what they are doing. I spent years visiting different chiropractors, orthopedists, massage therapists and physical therapists and no one could properly diagnose my shoulder pain. Dr. Claudia is the first person who was able to look at the big picture and realize that most of the pain in my shoulder was coming not just from my shoulder but from my neck. When I started PT I could barely move my neck to either side and could not turn my head. I finally feel like I am making real progress.
