Dr James W Zielinski DC
I met Dr. James Zielinski while browsing through row of vendors at one of the shows held at Sullivan Arena here in Anchorage. Through our conversation, I came to know that he was in the chiropractic field and obviously a caring, knowledgeable and dedicated professional. His explanations broke down a complex field of practice into terms I could easily and clearly understand. Dr; Zielinski’s clinic was having a promotional special which he invited me to. After years of suffering in horribly debilitating back and neck pain, I finally decided to take a step forward and really do something about it. Shortly after the show, I took a deep breath and walked into his office. I did not realize at the time that this would be the best “steps forward” that I would ever take.To tell you the truth, it did not take only a session or two to “cure” my pain. There was a lifetime of problems to be addressed and so much work to be done. Dr. Zielinski took such excellent care of me from the word “go”. He patiently listened and learned about my overall health before administering his healing physical manipulations and therapy. After only having worked on me for a few weeks, the results were amazing! My pain was completely gone and I felt so much better. But here is the really good kicker. Because of Dr. Zielinski’s wonderful treatments, my body has become painlessly-fluid and much more active than ever before. I have truly surprised myself by the new things I have tried: rock climbing, high-elevation hiking, monofining, compound bow-shooting, to name a few. Just pick something and I have probably done it or will be doing it soon. Another side benefit of my increasing activity has been a weight loss, which I have kept off now for three years. But remember, none of the above-mentioned changes could have been made without the most important first step, addressing my pain through chiropractic care.If you go to see Dr. Zielinski for relief and healing and do precisely as he advises, I promise you will find that relief from pain and the changes through healing that you seek and in good measure. You deserve the most complete healing, the deepest and the most positive and productive change, and nothing will stop you from finding it in Dr. Zielinski’s office.

Mitchell Chiropractic
I went to another Chiropractor to have two ribs put back in place and then i decided since my spine bent i would have them straighten me, the first day was fine then second day he cracked me so hard i had a sharp pain just under my bra line... I asked him if he broke my rib and he stated no, the pain got worse and every time i went in they would readjust me, only to cause more pain by the end of the weekend last week i was really sore, i went in on Monday and told them i was sore but they stated i need to readjust again, but Tuesday i was in tears i even had my dr. do an xray to make sure i didn't have a broken rib.. i went in for a massage and was told i had to readjust, i just couldn't do it but felt bullied into it.. i couldn't get back into my car i couldn't get out of my car.. my husband tried to help and hit my elbow and i was crying again.. i have a high thresh hold to pain but this was intense.. the next day i cancelled the rest of my appointments with them and i was eating Aleve like it was candy.. I was referred to this Dr. by my neighbor she stated they do NOT crack... they got me in on Sat. the 29th, i was really nervous. He worked my right side and just a little on left, i went back today and he did it again and my pain is almost gone and i feel a ton better.He actually lines you up...he has a table that you stand on then it lowers. He checks my alignment with my legs and feet and my head and my hands in different ways.. he uses a thumper is what i call it lol It's not painful.

Webb Chiropractic Wellness Center
My family and I have been seeing Dr. Gary and Dr. Jesse for 3 years now. At first I was skeptical about his tactics, but EVERYTHING he's ever done for us has worked. He treats the cause rather than the symptoms. At 1 yr old, my son fell off the couch and later that night starting puking. The regular doc. at Providence childrens' clinic said it was a stomach virus and to ride it out. After another 24hrs of throwing up I had Dr. Gary adjust him and he IMMEDIATELY felt 100% better and had an appetite. When I first started going, I had headaches that made me noxious, now my headaches are gone! My two year old had not developed any speech. The regular doc. suggested speech therapy and that everything seemed normal. Dr. Webb tested her nutrition levels and gave us a supplement for her. Within ONE WEEK she picked up 10 new words and has been gaining vocabulary consistently. My lower back used to have pain every time I would lay down flat, and my legs would ache. That pain is gone now as well. I have too many stories to post. I just wish that I knew about the Webbs a long time ago! (Also, I once tried a different chiropractor - thinking they were all the same. The are NOT all the same.)

Lucid DMS
Working with Lucid had been a pleasure since day one. The staff members were extremely professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. They walked us though how our website, e-commerce and POS would work together and they provided detailed recommendations on 3 separate e-commerce platforms listing the pros and the cons to each one. They had our website and e-commerce and POS set up in about 4 - 5 weeks with no problem and they even loaded up our inventory which was a huge time saver for us. We now have a maintenance contract with Lucid and they take care of our site for us and provide us with regular updates. One of the main things that I liked about these guys is they went out of their way to make our website better by adding some great graphics and search engine stuff that has landed us on the first page of Google which has helped our business a lot! The nice thing was that they didn't even charge us for it. They just asked us if we wanted it and they added it!!! We highly recommend using Lucid.

I have to admit I was skeptical at first, due to my lack of knowledge in web design, however they made me a believer during and after the process. Here's why:Free quote.Free consultation.Competitive prices.Affordable payment plans (mine is about the same as my cell phone bill).Comprehensive evaluation of my needs.Asked good questions about my goals.Help me to meet my goals. Offered several demos of my website.Responded to emails within 24 hours if not immediately in most cases.Provided me updates ever week about the design of my website.Finished my website in about 4 weeks.Provided me with an affordable maintenance plan (about a 1/3 of what I was paying for my old website). Updated my website in 24 - 48 minimum. Friendly staff. Very professional from start to finish.They designed a beautiful website for me that has far exceeded my expectations and I would recommend them to anyone who needs a website.

Geneva Woods Health Care Services
I was discharged from providence with instructions to call Geneva woods about a supply of IV antibiotics, and the people I spoke with were very kind, answered all my questions, and sent a nurse over to my house right away. The nurse herself was understanding of my situation, very helpful in teaching me how to perform infusions myself, and even came back to help me when I realized my PICC was exposed to air that same night. Another nurse they sent to change my dressing was so great, not only was he very careful about replacing the dressing, but he also explained all the things he needed to do to it or put on the PICC line, and for that I'm very thankful. I don't know how they got so many 1 star reviews, maybe I was just lucky, but I will go back to Geneva woods if I ever need home healthcare again.

Effective Chiropractic
I’m Alicia and I came to Dr. Omeads office. I found it on a Google search, and basically I am very skeptical going to any chiropractors because I respect my body and I don’t want to let just anyone mess with my spine. I’ve been really bloated, I have sinus problems, and when I came here this morning I couldn’t move my neck. After a very long and thorough examination I feel better. I’m smiling! And my nose feels better, my posture feels better, I’m actually a lot more aware of my neck now too which I’ve been holding, I thought I had good posture so I’m learning to heal myself and I’m going to come back and I hope you have a good session too.

Tae Kwon Do Usa
Tae Kwon Do Elite USA provides top-notch martial-arts instruction. This is the real deal, be it Olympic-style taekwondo, quality combat/street-defense hapkido, or Olympic-style/self-defense judo. The dojang produces athletes that dominate at state competition, excel and earn gold at national competitions, and earn positions on national teams (going on to medal internationally). Furthermore, when you advance in the belt systems (taekwondo, hapkido, or judo), you EARN your belt. Nothing is given. The curriculum is rigorous. The training gets you there. It is NOT a belt mill. - Larry Stokes

Anchorage Spinal Care Center LLC
I always recommend Anchorage Spinal Care to my friends. I let them know that I've received the BEST care there. I came to see Dr. Trekell back in 2001 when I was very nervous about chiropractic care. He immediately made me feel at ease with the whole exam. Ever since then I've been a happy returning customer. I've also had excellent care from Dr. Ketz. He is very easy to talk to and immediately addresses any areas of pain I have. They even offer massage therapy!Thank you for quality care!!
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
