I've been going to ""Doc G."" now for over a year. I moved out here and needed a new chiropractor, so I called him since he is pretty close to my apartment. Glad I did! He picked up when it wasn't even business hours and told me to ""come on in!"" (still, not business hours, but he was willing to make an exception since I was new to town). He and his staff always greet me with a warm smile and enthusiasm. I always feel taken care of and a million times better leaving the office. Not only is Dr. Gilson is a great chiropractor, but he's ALSO a great person. Everytime I turn around, he's hosting another charity event. His response to my ""good for you's"" is ""I have to, I have to give back."" Great guy, great staff, great place - go there!!!

I found Doc G through his community involvement in my neighborhood and he's the only chiro who hasn't left me in pain afterward -- even with three appointments a week.
I'm a senior with a ""misspent youth"" (including a couple bike accidents) but it wasn't until I got rear-ended by Cell-Phone Girl in an SUV on 101 that I reluctantly decided to try chiro again on my old, and now fragile, bod.
Doc G is not only good at his profession, he's a good guy -- funny, caring, great energy, and his ice/massage beds are heaven.
Appointment times are flexible, you're in and out quick, there's parking and he's mega-reasonable on $.
You might even get greeted by Reilly the Friendly Dog. Big thanks, Doc.

After a violent automobile accident my daughter and I were in need of specific chiropractic and accupuncture care. PotreroChiros took immediate action, made a review of our needs and put us on a solid rehabilition program. We received excellent health care. We are both now doing very well.
PotreroChiros also took complete responsibility for the insurance billings. We did not have to think twice about insurance, billing, or money. Our health was their main concern while staff took care of business.

So I have been to 5+ different chiropractors from Palo Alto up to SF, and nobody has given me the relief from my pain like Dr. G. He is incredibly knowlegable, and after chatting to him and whining about my pains for a few minutes on the first visit, he knew just what to do to get me back to my pain-free self again!
I haven't been able to run for 3+ years because of mid-back pain, and I am happy to report I went for 2 jogs last weekend, and my back is still feeling good! I'm telling you, if you want results, go to Potrero Chiropractors. They arent the most cushy, softy, spa-y, chiropractor in the City, but if you are like me and just want RESULTS, this is the place to go. I feel 100% safe in Dr. G's care, and trust that when he schedules follow up appointments, it is because he thinks that is the best way to help me, rather than feeling like he is upselling me to make some money (which is the impression I have gotten from a number of other Chiropractor's I have encountered).
THANK YOU DR. G!!

I started seeing Dr. Frank (aka Doc G) about 3 months now with cronic neck and upper back pains from flying too much. Not only did he imediately releive the pain, but the continual treatment (which is only 1x a month) plus the exercises he taught me have completely eliminated the pain. I really appreciate the ability to get in and get out fast AND get in with last minute notice (sorry I do this all the time Dr. Frank). I highly recommend Potrero. And honestly, I was really quite surprised how easy it was to find street parking around their office. A+ service.

Potrero Chiropractors has helped me tremendously. I had twisted my back and had recurring pain for over 6 months. Pain relievers stopped working. I had never been to a chiropractor before. Dr. Gilson answered the phone and made an appointment for me for that day after work. He gave me useful information about the spine and helped me understand my injury. From twice a week to once every two weeks my back has improved greatly WITHOUT the use of pain relievers. I feel SO MUCH better, it's almost hard to believe. I'm so glad I went.

Potrero Chiropractors ROCK! Dr. Frank's positive and energetic personality speaks volumes to his professional and charismatic treatment. I have been under the care of my brother, who is a noted chiropractor in New England for more than 25 years, and I will say Dr. Frank is as successful in his treatment with me as my brother. I might even say more successful, but he is my brother. In my recent move to SF, I was under the care of a previous chiropractor, but discovered Dr. Frank and I am here to stay. Excellent work!!!!

I've been a patient of DOC G(Frank Gilson) for a couple of years and have always received NOTHING BUT THE BEST care and treatment from him. He has HELPED ME with a chronic mid-back problem as well as acute issues that involved a work-related repetitive stress injury and a hip injury that almost prevented me from participating in the SF to LA LifeCycle benefit.
Dr. G works hand-in-hand with JOHN ELLIS -- an acupuncturist and body worker. Together, they're the PERFECT COMBINATION of active and passive therapy.
But the BEST thing about this office is how FRIENDLY and WELCOMING everyone is, from the fantastic staff (Fabiola and Jackie) to Doc G and John. The atmosphere is professional but unintimidating. Everyone on staff goes out of their way to make patients feel COMFORTABLE and CARED FOR.
I have been to a number of chiropractors and acupuncturists over my years in San Francisco -- including those with a lot of letters after their names, but I've never found any to match the HEALING ABILITIES of Doc G and John.
THANK YOU to POTRERO CHIROPRACTIC!!
I first went to see Dr G. after I sprained my ankle playing soccer. I was thinking he would just adjust it and let me go. But after the first consultation, I realized how messed up my back and neck were. So he helped my ankle to heal in no time and after a few visit, I forgot about my stiff neck and now I go once in a while for ""maintenance"". Besides, everybody in the office is very friendly, you can show at anytime when you need it and the wait is very limited. So if you suffer from your ankle, knee, neck, back, etc... Dr G will surely make you feel better.
Frank and John are fabulous at what they do, and I appreciate their efficiency. I have strains from typing into computers all day, and Doc G has done an amazing job at correcting problems in my spine and neck. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Potrero Chiro to anyone in pain or those looking for a new chiropractor and/or acupuncturist.
