Dr. Dave is AWESOME!

I have enjoyed the staff and treatments (even when I was really hurting) from Health 1st for several years. Dr. Dave is very personable and Jenny is a real treat to talk with! They really care and truly want to make sure you feel better on the way out their door than when you came in!

Every review prior to mine is spot on! Dr. Dunham is a rare breed in the healthcare community. He sincerely cares about each and every one of his patients and healing their health issues. A little less than 2 months under his care, my myfascial pain syndrome was finally relieved after years of suffering...and without medication.

Dr. Dunham and his staff are always very welcoming, accomodating to your schedule and surround their patients in a positive atmosphere.

If all doctors were like Dr. Dunham, our world would be a much healthier and happier place.

Health 1st ROCKS!!!!

I started coming to Health 1st when I was 20 after I injured my neck. Now, 9 years later, I still enjoy my bi-weekly visit to Dr. Dunham’s office. Dr D. is one of the most decent, understanding and honorable doctor's I have ever known. He genuinely enjoys helping people, and you can see that in the way he treats everyone that walks through his doors.

His staff is another ace in the deck. Jenny is always so pleasant and kind when you come in. She is so busy, but she ALWAYS smiles up at you and asks you how your day has been and makes you feel special. She really makes the office shine.

GOOD JOB Health 1st!

Best Chiropractor Around!

I started coming to Health 1st a year ago based on a recommendation from a friend. I had severe shoulder and some neck pain. Dr. D provided a combination of chiropractic and physical therapy as part of my treatment. Dr. D is a very caring and understanding doctor and is very thorough in his treatment and he genuinely cares about each and every patient . You always feel welcomed at Health 1st. Jenny is always there to greet you and ask you how your day is.

Great professional, greater guy.

""Dr. Dave"" has done a great job providing chiropractic and physical therapy care to me and my wife. His approach is efficiently effective. His personality and attitude are a pleasure as well. Very much on top of his game in regards to providing the care required. He uses very little in the way of gadgets preferring a more holistic approach. Many people are scared to visit a Chiropractor for these reasons. Don't be afraid to visit this one.

Chiro & PT from the same person

I went to Dr. Dunham on the recommendation of a friend for chiropractic treamtment, but was very pleased to find out that he was also a Physical Therapist as well. So, he does the typical chiropractic adjustments, but he also gave me some exercises to do at home between appointments as well. I'll admit I was a little skeptical of going to a chiropractor in the first place, but the balance of the two treament methods give me extra confidence that the whole program is working.

Jenny in the office is great. She's so friendly and really keeps things moving. I never had to wait for my appointment...I showed up on time and they got me in and out on time. They also did a great job handling all the insurance stuff for me as well. I can't say anything negative about the office!

Going Above and Beyond

Dr. Dunham and his staff are the best. I've been seeing Dr. Dunham now for more than a decade. The whole office makes you feel like your family. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, they handle insurance, work on exericise's program's and just do what ever is needed to make your office visit and personal life less stressful. Jenny is a Jewell!!!! Always very welcoming and making sure every need is taken care of. The entire staff is very helpful. I've been to other rehabilitiations center's and none can compare. If you want the best, come to Health 1st Physical Rehab .

High Quality Care and Caring Staff

If you want high quality care in a respectful and supportive environment Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation is the only place to go. I have been to several other Doctors'. Dr. Dunham and his team go above and beyond any other office I have been to.

Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation

When I first made an appointment with Dr. Dunham I could barely move. I was in acute condition. He assessed my situation and set up an immediate appointment for me. Once my injury had been identified within two weeks I felt relief. I have not a muscle spasm in over 6 months or any pain medication as well.

I am so grateful to have found this facility and the staff is amazing in taking care of your needs. If you are in pain...stop by for a real cure and relief of your injuries. I am now able to resume by workout regiman and maintain a good quality of life that was hindered before.

No waiting, Positive Attitude, Helpful Employees

Dr. Dunham is located right down the street from my office at 62nd & Binford Blvd. I started going to Dr. Dunham because I was in a car accident, I was in a lot of pain and he immediately set me up with a Tens unit to relax my muscles and we started a treatment plan.

Jenny, who is part of the amazing office staff, helped me through ALL of the insurance hassles and made it very easy on my part to be a patient. They both also remembered who I was every time I walked in the door.

I am in sales, which means my schedule can change at the drop of a hat and my time is very valuable. Dr. Dunham and his staff are very respectful of that and are flexible when I need them to be. They have appointments after 5 which really helps me maximize my time at work, while not interfering with my chiropractic needs.

I would hands-down recommend Dr. Dunham as not only a chiropractor, but a physical therapist. He is very knowledgeable and helpful and his main priority is his patients.

If it's insurance or waiting time you are worried about, Health 1st is the place for you because you won't have to worry about any of that here.

Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation: Three in One!

I have never had a doctor who is helping my motion and attitude. I have been going to Dr. Dunham since October 2009. My job is very physical and I'm on my feet 8 hours a day..I came to him with a pinched nerve in my neck and other inflammed nerves.I can truly say, I'm hardly ever botherd with those problems.He has kept the pain at bay. He is excellent at his profession. If I come in with a new pain, he's very concerned and handles the problem. Dr. Dunham is very pleasant,comical, and a wealth of information. Ms. Jenny, his Technical Assistant is a joy. She is genuine in her caring and converstion.She helps me with any paperwork from my insurance company that I don't understand.She makes it painless.There's nothing more beneficial than being healed the natural way. I recommend Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation and Dr. Dunham to anyone who is serious about their physical health, and a wonderful atmosphere to heal in. As long as they are in business, they will have mine. Thank You Dr. Dunham and Ms. Jenny for your loving care!!

If you want to feel truly better go to Dr. Dunham.

I have been going to Dr. Dunham for just over a year now. I initially started going to see him for numbness in my neck. I had visits two times a week. After a very short while I lost the numbness and even noticed that I was sleeping better. I now only need to go once every two weeks, my neck feels great, and I am still sleeping better!
In addition, Dr. Dunham has a great staff that is friendly and helpful. I am lucky enough to have health insurance that covers a percentage of my expenses with Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation, and not once have I had to deal with my insurance company. Dr. Dunham’s staff always handles this for me making it an even more stress free experience.
I highly recommend Dr. Dunham and Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation.

Most trustworthy professional I know!

I have known Dr. Dave since 1996. He began treating my mid back pain which had interfered with my functioning on a daily basis. Since seeing Dr. Dave regularly, I have been without pain for so long and now receive monthly wellness treatments. Dr. Dave treats my husband and began treating my 2 children since birth. We have been so blessed to have him in our lives. We trust his advice over our regular PCP or any other specialists that we have come in contact with. If you are in need of treatment, medical advice or recommendations/referrals, Dr. Dave is the person for you! Go see him!

Grade: A+

Dr. Dunham is a true pain reliever! I have been going to Health 1st for almost 10 years. I started seeing Dr. Dunham for a pinched nerve in my neck, but have continued so that never happens again! Dr. Dunham's office is friendly and helpful. He truly cares about his patients and it shows from the 1st moment you meet him! Dr. Dunam goes that extra mile to meet the needs of every patient, and even seems to be having a lot of fun doing it!

Health 1st Physical Rehabilitation

Dr D is the best! I have a curved spine and a pinched nerve in my back which causes my leg to go numb. Dr D fixed me up no problem. He had a test done where they shot electrodes up my leg to test how well my nerves were working and took xrays of my back to see where I was at and then how my progress was coming along. His staff is very friendly and willing to work with you. Dr. D is very friendly and energetic and really cares about his patients. It truly was a blessing to find such a wonderful chiropractor/physical therapist/nurse!

The Greatest!!!

I have been attending Health First for about three years now. I was referred to Dr. Dunham from my boss who had been going to him for quite some time.

Dr. Dunham and his staff are courtesy and professional! He is very easy to talk to and accessible at anytime. I am always inspired about his commitment to a lifestyle of wellness care. He is not only interested in my neck and back, but encourages me to be a healthier person! A

lmost everyone I know goes there now!

Stress Relief

I have a lot of stress at work. Dr Dunham gave me some simple exercises I could do at home. Between that and regular adjustments, my neck pain and headaches are gone!
