I went there in February of 2016 for some upper back pain, nothing too bad. After insisting to see me everyday for 2 weeks my back and neck drastically started to get worse. I quit going and decided to consult with an orthopedic surgeon. They said the chances are I had a small issue that the chiropractor made worse, but there is no way to prove it 100%. I do know the pain became 10 times worse during the visits. I went to Beacon Orthopedic in Cincinnati and they fixed me. I am now pain free. Unfortunately they had to perform a cervical fusion consisting of removing and replacing two discs then inserting two titanium plates in my neck.
I would stay clear Castleton Chiropractic. I can't prove it they hurt m y neck. But I know I woke up after sleeping on it wrong, went there, and two weeks later an MRI showed a damaged vertebrae.

When I threw my back out Dr. Barkat and her staff were very caring and professional. Dr. Barkat took great care of me and even came in on her day off (Sunday) to see me. I have never been to another chiropractic office where everyone was so caring and attentive. I am very pleased to be a patient of Dr. Barkat's. And to know that they truly care about there patients gives me a peace of mind.

Well what can i say went to the man the great white doctor for several yrs , yep , got treated like a million dollars by him and all his staff ... i rate that one 100% .
How ever over a long period of time there seemed to be a communication problem things where not working out , different treatments for me , however may not of helped me of course but does not mean his methods could not of help others however , ..... i just got worse , i even did the excersizes and keep hoping to get better with things he was doing , ,,,,, i can not stress enough how important it is to communicate with your doctor .... now even a apology can not help anything , he is a good man , great with the back and neck , friendly . but it is what it is ........
My experience with Dr. Sheppard at Castleton Chiropractic has been very pleasing, and satisfying. The people are very nice. I came in with injury from a very serious car wreck and they have helped me come along very nicely.
I would recommend them, highly, to anyone.

I don't believe i've ever even heard of a doctor who seriously dose not care like this one , priority is money how much can your insurance pay .....
No goals or discussions on how he can help you , No discussions in regards to x-rays.
Ignores your complaints on his treatments , you keep coming back and after so many mo s and yrs you know this man is only interested in money .
I've never been so upset and discussed with a docter like this one ,
The lady docter is a doll , and does a great job, the man is joke , very smooth ......
I've only hear about docters like this never meet one .
do not go there , go any where , he ruined me ,,,,,

I visit for Castleton adjustments and maintenance. I always feel less stressed and more mobile when I leave. The staff here is extremely competent and very friendly. I look forward to my visits to Castleton Chiroractic. Dr. Barkat has been very helpful with my insurance claims, as well. Thanks for making me feel so much better!!

I suffered from lower back pain for the better part of 20 years before I sought help. I think because I was afraid of being told that I would need surgery or something, and that it would not really fix my problem anyway.
But the pain was getting worse the older I got, and I knew I had to do something. So I finally went in not knowing what to expect.
All that happened was they applied some electrical stimulation to my lower back muscles, a therapist then gave me a nice back massage to loosen everthing up, and Dr. Barkat did a few adjustments to my lower back area.
Now, I didn't notice much improvement right away, but I went in once a week to receive the same series of treatments, and about a month in, my back began to feel better! We then spread my treatments out to once a month. Since I've been doing this, I have not had one single relapse into back pain!
My sincere thanks to Dr. Barkat and everyone at Castleton Chiropractic.

I came to see Dr. Barkat because I was barely able to move from lower back strain. The entire staff - every last one - was phenomenal.
They asked questions to determine what my issues were and they ensured my comfort and recovery on every single visit.
Dr. Barkat worked wonders on my back and after just the first visit, I already saw results. I stuck to the treatment plan she put in place for me and I now only see her for preventative care. I couldn't ask for a better Chiropractor or office.

They messed up my billing and now I have a hit on my credit report score.
After every visit, I asked at the front counter what my balance was. They consistently told me that I owed nothing-- my insurance covered everything. Never got a bill in the mail... But then turned me in to a collections agency?
Don't waste your time at this place-- go to another clinic that won't screw up your billing and you won't be paying for it for years on your credit score!!
