ive had my left knee scoped for a torn meniscus and have had 2 herniated disk surgeries. i was sitting crosslegged on the floor and tried to get up without using my hands when i heard and felt my right knee pop. there wasnt any immediate pain or discomfort. i actually still stood up. when i started to walk around and try to put pressure on it i knew it didnt feel right. after a few days i was convinced i had at least a meniscal tear in my right knee or at worst an acl tear. i couldnt walk around without feeling discomfort and some pain. i was using a crutch and wore a knee brace when i went out for support. julie saw me post something about my knee and a picture of me wearing a knee brace on facebook and she sent me a message saying to stop by and see her. when i got in she asked if i wanted surgery or to try to let the body heal its self. at this point i was already convinced i needed surgery and told her that anything would help but am sure i would have to get it done. she took some xrays of my back and hips and found out that my mid back was misaligned and that my right hip was misaligned by 9mm! wow she also explained that because of the hip misalignment it could affect the way i walked and could have put pressure and wear on my knee which could have caused the problem i was having. (ok embarrassing part coming up but it explains a lot) she also told me that because of that hip misalignment a lot of children tend to wet their bed because of the nerves being pinched in the hips. i did wet my bed a lot when i was younger. makes a lot of sense. anyways she checked my knee and pressed around and found tender spots. i forgot the terminology she used but basically said that something popped out and that she was going to push it back in. after she pushed it back in (its painful) and then adjusted my mid back and then adjusted my hip she told me to walk around putting full weight on my right knee. i was kinda skeptical but as i walked i had full range and motion and could walk normally. granted it was still very tender from injuring it and julie adjusting it, i was able to walk around her office without having to baby my knee or fear of instability. i was in disbelief. here i was convinced i needed surgery and all it needed was some adjusting by julie. granted not everyones case would be the same as mine and not everyones results would be the same as mine, but she saved me the trouble of possibly having to have unnecessary surgery done to my knee. i know ill have to eventually have to get surgery, but like she explained to me "better to get it done later in life if it can be prevented" THANK YOU SO MUCH! i was able to talk out of her office holding my crutch and knee brace instead of having to use them. i also understood that she explained that over years of being misaligned that its usually not a one visit fix. that she needs to adjust my body back to the correct position and that could take anywhere from a few weeks to months depending on the severity of the misalignment. im heading back to korea soon to work and will stop by her office as much as i can before i go back. she uses the gonstead system of chiropractic. look it up, it makes a lot of sense.

Before I start my review, I want to make it known that I currently work here. It is very rare that I find people (especially doctors) that can inspire me to change my lifestyle and outlook on life. I had been sick for 3 years with chronic diarrhea, and up until January of 2012, I continued living with it. After working here for 3 months, I've noticed this is a common trend with patients. People tend to live with what they can bear until the pain becomes too great. For me, the last week of January was my condition's tipping point. I had a sharp stomach pain (i never had this before) in the lower abdomen that lasted for eighteen hours and I didn't know what to do. Being in transition with jobs, and not having insurance, I was scared that my financial backbone would not be able to support my health. Dr. Quan was referred to me by a close friend, and he had high praises for her. I went in skeptical, but by the end of April, my stool and health had returned to a normalcy I hadn't seen in years. I then started to disclose my other medical conditions (such as thumping heart beats in early mornings, tight chest pain, and a chronic cough I couldn't get rid of from having pneumonia years earlier). It is now August, and my coughs are gone, and I am currently working with the chest pains. I had my blood tests done just this week, and I have confidence that healthy exercise, routine chiropractic adjustments & diet will get me through this final obstacle. For me, Dr. Quan is a person that is very rare to meet. She dedicates her soul and energy into her patients to make sure they get the best possible care. Countless times, she has sacrificed lunch to see patients who had pain that could not wait. She comes in at 8PM, weekends, and even holidays for her patients. When she is not with patients, she is constantly researching her field of study and networking to build a bigger practice. Many times, Dr. Quan starts her day at 5AM in the morning with exercise, works through 12 hours of patient care, and spends the rest of her evening reading for either personal growth or medical growth. I can say for me, having Dr. Quan in my life is a blessing and she has inspired me. The inspiration is: when you look at Dr. Quan, you see a human who is living each day with all of her soul and passion. A person with zero regrets is someone who I strive to be. One thing that I have misunderstood about chiropractic care is: I always thought chiropractic care is supplemental care to the common medical care. Chiropractic care has the potential to heal all and diseases even as extreme as cancer have been treated successfully through chiropractic care. If you need to see a chiropractor for whatever reason, this is the place to go. You won't regret it.
Let me start off by saying that I'm a very active person. I gogo dance, snowboard, mtn bike, golf, etc. I am constantly on the go, but the problem was that I was also consistently in pain. My neck and back were always an issue for me. I've been to several other chiropractic places, and although the pain was relieved at the moment it has never healed completely. Dr. Julie, on the other hand, not only heals your body naturally, but if you tell her where and what kind of pain you have, she will adjust you and target those areas as well as adjust you according to the x-rays. Not only does she want you feel good externally, but internally also. You can get all your vitamins and nutritional supplement through her. (all are natural products) I remember when I went on a 3 week trip to Europe, I was concerned with having back and neck problems, while overseas. After expressing my concerns to Dr. Julie, she immediately scheduled a time to arrange for me to get adjusted at my house one last time before I left, knowing that I won't be able to make it to her office. She brought her table and adjusted me right at my house. Dr. Julie is such a kind, warm, and positive person. Every time I see her, she makes me feel amazing! I feel as though I can concur the world every time I leave her office. She holds workshops every month to educate her patients and her patients' friends and family. She is one of the most personable doctors I have ever met. She is more concerned for my health than I am, and that's a good thing! She's constantly reminding me to drink more water. And not only that, she teaches which exercises are needed in order to hold the adjustments. My most recent injury was a dislocated rib. After 3 adjustments, she was able to get me all better, and it no longer hurts when I breath.
