Sorry but as far as I am concerned, there is not any. I have been to many of them and not one listens to what I have to say and that is the first step in being good doctor.,

The Kessinger clinic deals with that, they are very professional and know what they're doing. Very good doctors.

I am an older guy too, 72 years of age, with diabetes, osteoarthritis, and other conditions of aging. I see Dr. Huss at Mercy, but have been his patient for more than 20 years. He is thorough, compassionate, and specializes in gerontology (conditions of older people). He uses appropriate specialists as needed, but he is my consistent primary physician, i.e., my first line of contact with the health care system. He's a straight shooter but respectful and concerned...some have criticized his demeanor, but i have always found him to have my health and best interests at heart while considering me a part of the decision making process. You might want to give him a try.

Dr Harbach is great. You need a referral from your personal physician to see him. I think he specializes in neck treatment and related procedures.

I'm assuming your pain is in your back. I would go to Dr. Jay Kessinger, he knows what he's doing. You could go to Dr. Rob, his brother, he's an upper cervical specialist if you have neck pain but Dr. Jay is more qualified and can treat the whole body.

Funny that they asked for a doctor and people are recommending chiropractors. Anybody that wants you to come in every week for an $80 "adjustment" isn't a doctor, they're selling snake oil. Go to St. Louis where the real doctors practice.

Chiropractors ARE real doctors, hey take more college hours than medical doctors and the chiropractors you're talking about do exist but they are the ones that believe in only adjusting and nothing more. Kessingers Chiropractic does so much more than just adjusting, they run an alternative healthcare facility. You need to quit being so biased when it comes to healthcare options.

In my opinion, kessinger is a complete moron. Do you ever listen to him on the radio? Sounds like he has the beginning of Alzheimers and if his assistant wasn't with him to fill in, he couldn't even compkete a sentence. Their show is an infomercial for all the tets thet do and the products they sell. MD's don't sell prescription or even supplements in their office.

MD's don't sell prescriptions, but they do prescribe them and that's all they do. They don't treat you, they'll cover it up with medicine. As for Kessinger, he's a very good doctor and knows what he's talking about, his assistant isn't with him anymore, his brother is. I suggest you try him before you knock him, he'll actually get you better. They tell you how to get better and what do do to change your lifestyle.

It is ilegal for chiropractors to use injectable vitamins or IV' in their practice. If you have question please contact the Missouri State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Also follow this link. http://www.azchiropractors.org/file_open.php...

It is not illegal for chiropractors to use injectable vitamins, it has been challenged by the pharmaceutical board they say it's an Rx. It hasn't been declared illegal and it won't be because it's not a drug.

They have not considered it illegal, it says that the pharmaceutical board has questioned it and took it into examination, they can't get the supplies in Missouri for now. They say it lies outside of their scope, but it's still legal.
