    Bubbling Spring Massage
    Excellent! Five stars ������������������������������ maybe even six stars!! I bought a package for five more massages off of her website, bubbling spring massage��� very affordable, and boils down to $45 per treatment. Highly recommend Jenni!

    Absolutely fabulous - five stars. When I leave Jenni's office my body feels like it's 19 again. No muscle pain, tension in neck and jaw gone. She is amazing, knows many different therapeutic modalities, and can fix any pain going on in your body.

    Here's a brief review about what I hope will be a long-term relationship. (The "hope" is that they don't move away!) After putting up with hip pain and lower back spasms for far too long, I found this practice through my health insurance "provider finder", and read a couple of online reviews... and I'm so pleased that I did. It feels as though Dr. Martin has put me back together again from where I fell off of Humpty Dumpty's wall, and I've noticed tremendous improvement in the short span of ten days. He's even working on a 30-year-old softball injury in my former pitching arm that has stunned me with my increased range of motion. My advice is to not be silly like I was and wait so long before coming in to this practice. It had been ten years since my last chiropractic experience in Boulder, which while it was all right, didn't create a burning desire in me to return. I plan to rely on these folks for years to come.

    We needed to wait until the surgeon cleared him for PT before making an appointment and then had been told by other providers that we would need to wait (sometimes almost a month) before beginning therapy.  A friend recommended this office and after doing a little research I decided to try them.  They understood the importance of starting therapy quickly and got him started within the week.  Their office was very professional. Everyone was friendly and the entire experience was a refreshing change.  With their help my son's recovery is continuing very quickly. We will definitely use this group again next time someone in my family needs PT.

    Dr. Craig Reese DC PC
    Great - very thorough and did not try to set up a plan, or schedule another appt, as other chiropractors try to do.   Very to the point and knowledgable.   I will be using him as my chiropractor!!

    The day of the appointment -  I don't remember waiting too long or anything particularly negative about the office or staff. And, after talking to Dr. Sorensen I thought he was knowledgable about my condition. Together we decided that my best course of action was exercise, mainly in the form of warm water therapy. The warm water exercise was a new idea (my primary had given me other things that I could try) so I was happy about that.
    But, like the previous reviewer, when it came to managing my the pain medication, I was totally let down. I told Dr. Sorensen that I had been taking 400 mg of pain meds a day for the past 5 months. He said he wanted me to cut that in HALF. He said that since I probably still had some pain meds leftover (I did), I should use those to ease myself down to the 200 mg over the next few days. At the time, I felt he cared and had my best interest in mind so I agreed. (Not that I had a choice.) It was later that I started thinking.  I had told Sorensen that I wouldn't be able to get into a good exercise routine until my kids were back in school, just 5 weeks from then.  So, if nothing else changes right now, how in the heck was I going to reduce the meds by half? Still, I planned to give it my best.
    The first thing to go wrong is that I didn't fill his prescription right away. Since I had some meds left, I used those and didn't end up filling my prescription until 8 days later. So, when I began his prescription I had none of my previous left. And then, 3 or 4 days later, I had the worst bout of pain I had had yet, so, yes, I took more pain meds than prescribed. I have two young kids who need me so I can't just stop doing things because of pain. With the extra meds, the pain wasn't gone (it never is) but I could function. Well, of course, I then found that I was going to run out of my prescription early. On average, I had reduced my pain med intake by 1/3. I thought that was pretty darn good and was encouraged since I hadn't even started my exercising yet. I was proud of myself for doing as well as I did. But, I needed some more medication.
    I called the doctor's office, got their voicemail so left a detailed message that I needed an early refill and why I was going to run out early. This was about noon on Thursday. A couple hours later a nurse (I think) called me back and said that I shouldn't need an early refill because it's been 30 days since the doctor saw me so I should be able to refill it on my own. I explained that I didn't fill the prescription right away. She said that that shouldn't matter since it had been 30 days since he wrote it. Huh? Well, although I knew that wasn't the case, I said I'd call the pharmacy but asked her that if the pharmacy needed authorization and called the office, the prescription refill would be okayed, right? She said yes. I called the pharmacy. They, of course, said they couldn't fill it yet without the doctors okay so they would call the doctor. A couple hours later I called the pharmacy to see if my prescription was ready to be picked up. They said no, the doctor said no early refills. ?!!! Knowing that the office closed in 10 minutes and that the doctor wouldn't be in again until Monday, I called Sorensen's office immediately. I got voicemail. I left a message imploring the doctor to call me back that day. I did not hear from him or the office. The next day I still heard nothing and knowing the staff was there until noon, I called again around 11:00am. I reached someone. I thoroughly explained my situation and asked her if what I was asking sounded reasonable. She said yes but it is Dr. Sorensen's policy to never authorize early refills. We talked some more and she said she would get a message to the doctor. It is 5 days later and I never heard from him or his office. 
    This whole experience has negatively affected me in a number of ways which I'll not get into here. But, that fact that a pain doctor left me in a great deal of pain, really shook me up. I've been abandoned with this pain by someone who is supposed to care and help. But, almost worse, I was made to feel like I didn't matter. I was made to feel shame over my pain med use even though, like I said, I felt really good about how much I was able to reduce. I just couldn't do it 100%.  And, he didn't even have the decency to talk to me about it himself or even have his nurse call me back. Isn't the doctor's oath to first do no harm? He harmed me, no doubt. 
    I would never recommend Leif Sorensen. I was not the first to be treated poorly so I am sure I wouldn't be the last and I would not want anyone else to go through this.

     Dr. Linda Lehrer - Massage Therapy

    I have known her for almost 20 years.
    She is wonderful, very knowledgeable.
    Has been a massage therapist for around 25 years.
    Very intuitive, very accommodating for pressure.
    She is so varied in her knowledge with aroma therapy.
    She knows so many modalities that she incorporates into her practice.
    Very good.

    The whole experience went very well. The staff was all very friendly, helpful and professional. They take the time to educate you on your first couple of chiropractic visits. My back has felt great ever since I have gone. The nice lady working at the front desk is always so helpful and gets to know each patient even though she seems very busy.

    I was referred to Dr. Sorensen for pain management. It took three phone calls (including an un-answered voicemail) to even talk to someone about getting an appointment. I do not blame his assistant, Rita for this; once I finally made it in to the office, I found it quite obvious that she is extremely over-worked. It's hard to say if Dr. Sorensen is too cheap to hire the appropriate staffing for his office, or if he's just too much of a j*** to keep good employees. After waiting for half an hour after my scheduled appointment time, Dr. Sorensen came in and asked me to give him my history. He then started recommending options that I have already been through with the numerous other doctors who have tried to figure out the source of my abdominal pain. Clearly, he had not bothered to review my records, which had been sent by the doctor who referred me to him. We settled on an intercostal nerve block, which was scheduled for the following week. He did not provide any details; I assumed I would be given more information prior to the procedure. We then discussed pain medication options. I have had this pain for over five years, and have been treated with pain medications for over a year. I know what works. I asked Dr. Sorensen for this, and he said no. He said that he needed to see some effort on my part to cut back on the pain meds. When I asked why I should cut back when the problem has not been fixed yet, I was told that "this is how the game is played." When I told him that I wasn't playing games, he said he wasn't either. Huh? I went in the following week for the injections. I wasn't told what I was going to be injected with, how long it would last, what the possible side effects might be, the fact that the pain could get WORSE. Which it did. Much worse. The procedure was on Wednesday. I called Thursday and left two voicemails stating that I was in excruciating pain. I didn't get a response, and Friday was Christmas, so rather than being in horrible pain, I took more medication than was prescribed. I heard nothing until Sunday, when Rita happened to be in the office (another sign of being over-worked). She explained that Dr. Sorensen was out of the state until that Wednesday. She said that if I really needed to talk to him, she would give me a number to reach him. As I still had some of the meager supply of pain meds I was allowed on the initial visit, I declined, and said I would call back in a couple of days. I called back on Tuesday, because I was starting to get low on medication and didn't want to wait until the last minute to try and get a refill. I asked if Dr. Sorensen had anyone backing him up that could prescribe more meds for me, and was told that he did not. Rita said she would get with Dr. Sorensen first thing Wednesday morning when he came in. She called me Wednesday evening and said she had given him my message and my chart, but that he had walked out without giving her any response. When I finally did get a response on Thursday, Rita relayed to me that it was my fault for taking more than had been prescribed, and I would not be given any more. One would think that if a doctor describes himself as a "pain management" doctor, he would actually be at least a tad sympathetic toward his patients with chronic pain. I have been in pain for more than five years. I wake up in pain. EVERY DAY. I have to force myself to get out of bed. EVERY DAY. I don't want to be on pain medication for the rest of my life. I want to be free of pain. I want to walk my dog. I want more intimacy with my husband. I want to do normal, everyday things, like clean my house, without having to suffer afterwards. I want to do ANYTHING besides sit on the couch all day, IN PAIN. Until someone can find out what is wrong with me and how to fix it, I don't understand why I should be expected to show some "effort" by reducing my pain medication. It is an effort to get up in the morning, get dressed, and try to be a productive member of society. It is a slap in the face to be sent to someone for "pain management" only to be treated like a drug addict.

    Austin, Dr. Paul
    He continually seeks to educate himself about health matters other than his own specialization, and therefore is able to sense my emotional problems. He is a good doctor, but needs to schedule appointments for a longer time. He is thorough and works with me as a team member in my health care. He listens, answers questions, and gives information and suggestions. I have been seeing him for four years.
