Here's the deal! If you opt into their wellness program, you have to pay up front and if you do not experience any improvement, oh well, too bad, so sad. They've got your money and you are stuck making payments until your Care Credit loan is paid off! This is the situation I am in now. The personalized program they set me up on cost me $6,466!!!!! This was for 3 MONTHS of wellness, possibly six. PLUS, that DOES NOT include ASEA, which is a monthly MLM supplement that they say "works with the program" and you "need to be on." That's an additional $200/month. PLUS, there is the protein powder that cost $48-and-change per bag, monthly. PLUS, there are the Beyond Organic supplements and foods that you have to buy that are an additional cost.They sit you in a room and put you in, what they refer to as the "Hot Seat." Appropriately termed as I felt intimidated when presented the cost of the program, and although I was sick to my stomach when I saw the price, I signed the deal anyway. My bad. Kicking myself every month now when I make that payment.The wellness program included two visits per week: one for lipo laser which supposedly draws toxins out of your fat, a chiropractic adjustment, and a muscle testing allergy treatment. The second visit is an ionic foot soak, a chiropractic adjustment, and a muscle testing allergy treatment.The $6,466 fee includes a cellular healing diet plan, cookbook, and some supplements. After five months, my inhaler use increased from one inhaler per month to 1-1/2!! NOT GOOD ... especially when paying such an exorbitant fee to feel batter!! I followed the diet, did everything I was told to do and when I caught a cold, I was sick - in bed - for 16 days! Very unusual. Also, since Dr. Jim wanted me off all fruits due to their sugar content, I started getting severe muscle spasms in my shin bones and in my rib cage. Turned out I was potassium deficient. I believe that occurred as a result of removing bananas from my diet, because before this "wellness plan" I would drink a smoothie every morning that included a banana, almond butter, kale and coconut water. Bananas = potassium.The "next phase" of my wellness program was going to cost me just shy of $500 in more supplements. This is where I drew the line and decided to cut my losses. I could not see throwing any more money at a program that obviously was NOT working for me, so I opted out. When I told the office manager, Sonja, her entire demeanor changed. She went from being sweet as pecan pie to sticking her nose up in the air and saying, "Your choice" and walking away from me without even allowing me to finish explaining. At this point, it was completely obvious that if I was not going to keep throwing money at them, she was not interested in what I had to say. So sad, because I had hoped to continue seeing Dr. Jim for adjustments but that attitude changed my mind.I found another local chiropractor where I get acupuncture and adjustments. I started juicing again (something Dr. Jim is opposed to as he prefers blended drinks), added fruit back into my diet and in less than a week, I am down to 2-5 puffs on my inhaler DAILY!!! This is down from 12-15 puffs just to get through the night!!! I'm also sleeping through the night without coughing fits. HUGE IMPROVEMENT in a very short period of time! And it only cost me $45/session for acupuncture ... AS NEEDED! No monumental financial commitment, no pressure, no up-front fees, no contract!It makes me even sicker to say that when I added all the incidentals (ASEA, Protein Powder, Beyond Organic, etc) to the original plan price, in the five months that I went to Acworth Wellness Center, it cost me close to $9000. When you figure that out monthly, that comes out to $1800 PER MONTH!! That's more than twice what I pay for my mortgage!!!!Sad to say that Acworth Wellness was NOT GOOD for my health... physical or financial!!!! =(
This place is amazing! I've had back pain and nerve pain for most of my life and I can honestly say I feel the best I have felt in a very long time.…
I came to see Dr. Jim for the first time about 6 years ago. I did not know it at the time, but many years of constant unresolved stress had taken a serious toll on my body in general. I had been suffering with random food allergies and was only able to eat a few things without a reaction. One doctor suggested I take Zoloft or Prozac to band-aid the symptoms, but I didn’t. Another doctor, an allergist, determined I had no allergies. I finally decided to try alternative health care. I tried one of the “big box” alternative medicine facilities, but thousands of dollars later my problems were significantly compounded. A friend of a friend with a similar story that suggested I find a doctor with a cold laser and skills in allergy clearings. I was game for anything and desperate to be able to eat again. Then I found Dr. Jim. We began slowly with clearings of my allergies. The clearings worked fast for me! He also suggested a few supplements. While this seems to be a quick fix…it actually took years. My body was such a mess. I now wear a size zero which I haven’t worn since high school and I have tons of energy! I have learned SO much and I have chosen to adopt a steadfast eating clean lifestyle. I doubt I will ever eat fast food again. Kind of makes me gag just thinking about it! In addition to these skills, Dr. Jim has also treated some of my other illnesses. Since beginning with him I have not needed to be on an antibiotic or taken any over the counter medications for anything in 6 years.A Sincere Thank You!Tracey H.
I can not say enough wonderful things about North Cobb spine and the staff. The staff and the doctors are all very professional and has been very helpful. They helped be after a very bad fall off a horse when I could barley walk. The spinal decrompession "saved" my life and allowed me to recover quickly. My son received excelent care after his hockey injury. They treat kids as well adults with great knowledge and care. They not only help after injuries but also make a huge difference in everyday health by making sure you are well aligned. I would highly recommend you give them a call. I have no doubt they can help you.
Excellent staff and Doctors. They treat their patients with so much respect, care, and courtesy. It's so important to follow through with your care plan to get the maximum benefits. North Cobb has improved my back and shoulder pain so significantly from where it once was. My children (ages 22-2 years old) receive the same excellent care. I am so thankful and grateful for their service, kindness, caring personalities and would highly recommend North Cobb Spine and Nerve Institute to anyone.
I am so thankful I walked through the doors of North Cobb Spine and Nerve Institute! I deal with chronic pain and I thought I would be stuck feeling horrible forever. I feel the best I ever have thanks to them. The doctors and staff are amazing here. They are very respectful and truly care about each person. I highly recommended going to North Cobb Spine and Nerve Institute. You won't be disappointed!
Dealt with back pain for what feels like centuries! It only took a few visits for my back pain to be alleviated. The doctors are very professional and knowledgeable and tailored a treatment plan to best suit my needs. The lovely girls are very sweet and professional and they really make you feel welcomed and cared for. This is one of my favorite places to be :-)
The staff is professional and sincerely care about their patients. I can honestly say, that since I started going to NCSNI (about 3 years ago) my back has significantly improved. I highly recommend anyone who is experiencing back and/or sciatic nerve pain and severe headaches to make an appointment as soon as possible!
This place is amazing! I've had back pain and nerve pain for most of my life and I can honestly say I feel the best I have felt in a very long time. The doctors and staff put so much time into my care and I received the best treatment. So thankful I found them and so is my wife and kids!
I trust Dr. Jim and his staff with my family and that says a LOT!!! The detox programs, weight loss program, allergy treatments, chiropractic adjustments, everything! I would never even think about looking for another wellness center.
