The first time I went to Thrive was around May of 2010. I was sick all the time and very stressed out with work and home situations. I was overweight and lethargic. Everything was going wrong. I was seen by Dr. Filiz Bakir, the owner, and I immediately fell in love with her. Dr. Filiz Bakir started off by applying the Traditional Chinese Medicine intake methodology; tongue and pulse testing and etc... she asked me a ton of questions and we chatted at leisure. The session took about 90 minutes, including my first treatment. She concluded my issue was GUT and stress related, and Acupuncture and Homeopathy was prescribed and applied for a few visits. She also invited me to a Digestive Care Workshops that was held on-premises (she was the main speaker). That was the beginning of a new life for me. I have been a client now for many years, and I no longer require constant care. I have reached my ideal weight, personal and health goals, and I never felt better in my life. I come now because I like the treatments, the people, the lectures and specially to catch up with Dr. Filiz and the rest of the team. I must ad that the cost of going there is very affordable, and my insurance covered most if not all my bills.

I passed by Thrive Wellness Center several times with a feeling that I knew they could help me after visiting several Physicians around the Country. My Experience with Dr. Filiz Bakir was life changing. Since 2008 I struggled with a Brachial Plexus issue that caused my right arm to become impaired & atrophy several times a year. I started acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine in November of 2013 @ Thrive . After a few months of treatments I have been pain free & not one episode of the Brachial Plexus issue. I am so grateful to have found Thrive and be pain free but more importantly not to struggle with the emotional issues that accompany this lack of understanding from the Medical Community. I'm so thankful that I finally made the Apt. I was told live with it & take pills or have surgery for 5 years! What a difference Dr. Bakir & the team @ Thrive made in my life and continue to add such loving care & support for myself, family & friends! Love you guys!!
I live in Fort Lauderdale and I have been searching for the best chiropractor....I wanted a professional doctor that could really help. I found the best chiropractor in Oakland Park! Dr, Jess Neilen was fantastic. He got rid of my headaches that were caused by the neck pain and back pain that I've been having as a result of my auto accident. He offers massage therapy too! If you are looking for the best chiropractor in Fort Lauderdale, go see Dr. Jess Neilen!
