  • I've been a physical therapist for over 17 years, and was a member of Adapt Training gym, participating in multiple boot camps, prior to moving out of state in '09. During those boot camps, I had knee pain (from a worn out joint), and they were able to help me work around these, 'move' and get fit and in doing so, knee pain decreased and I was able to live the active life I've always lived. I remember finishing one Boot camp, and then going on an annual week long ski trip in Aspen. My trainer had given me a 'menu' of stretches/exercises to do before and after each day of skiiing--and I skiied hard all day, and virtually no soreness throughout the week (usually I could barely move the mornings after skiing). It was amazing. Then, in '12, the medial portion of my knee collapsed, my knee was bone on bone, stage IV osteoarthritis (at age 41) and in desperation, I moved temporarily to Beaverton specifically to participate in Adapt's Physical therapy, & muscular efficiency class, in order to see if I could avoid a total knee replacement. I was so incredibly deconditioned, I couldn't even do a quad set on the injured leg. After 3 months, my body had undergone tremendous change & healing, as much as it could without actually replacing the joing-and after careful consideration, with the help of my treating PT, the PT who taught the muscular efficiency class and the owners of Adapt, I decided my best choice was to go through with the knee replacement. I had surgery out of state, and again moved back to Beaverton temporarily to participate in PT and muscular efficiency classes at Adapt. There were some other complications with my knee, due to a surgeon error, which made it necessary to go back for another surgery in '13 on my knee for the surgeon to replace the incorrectly sized 'liner'....and I repeated the whole rehab process--moved back to Beaverton for more PT/classes. Oh, and during this time, too, I changed the way I was eating, and dropped 80 pounds. What a gift this place is. Its where I got my life back. 4 months later, I moved back home (out of state) and signed up for an Ironman. I had my workout 'programs' that I continued to follow daily (they teach you how to care for your body, as opposed to other places who try to make you dependent on 'them' so you have to keep spending money to go back for more treatment), and after a year of training for Ironman, Nov '14 I crossed the finish line of Ironman Arizona (post knee replacement!!!!). I go back for workouts when Im back in town-most recently, this summer was in town for 2 weeks--enjoyed being back in the gym and felt wonderful after the 2 weeks! Adapt provided the encouragement, wisdom, and tools to get me to BEYOND my goals. They taught me that my body can do so much more than I think it can do. They provide functional training and therapy-unique and different than any other gym/PT in the area - and I continue to send my patients to them. I will say, it takes effort on the patient side-but if you're willing to put in the time/work, the possiblities are endless. Plus, the environment is great-upbeat, friendly, supportive...If you live in the area--you are fortunate!

  • They were very patient getting the swab in his throat in order to test for strep.  The doctors and nurses are very patient and caring. My son had had strep in the past and the doctors overlooked it as they could not get a sample.  At Edmonds they went the extra mile to be patient and get the real results.

     I love this facility.

  • Like other reviewer mentioned - this office ONLY wants your $$$ and doesn't care whether their over-treatment makes your health worse or not. They are chiropractors, yet in a single visit, they would bill you both for Chiro and for physical therapy service also. Ryan required me to go 3 times a week, even after I told him that his session actually made me feel much more numb. VERY inconsiderate of you or your health, just their money $$$. The billing was a joke as well, expect a HUGE bill if you follow their program - which is the SAME for everyone, 3 times a week...Who has that much time and energy after injuries?!

  • Anne was fantastic -- so friendly, warm, and supportive. I got lots of help in the office, plus take-home exercises. The space is bright and open, with good equipment. I "graduated" from treatment, but I wouldn't hesitate to go there again if necessary.

  • I have struggled with whether to write a review of this office. The staff is friendly, and I believe some/most of the chiropractors are good. They will not be happy with this review, but I think people should know the routine of this office before they commit. They are expensive if you go with their program. You should ask yourself if its worth the time and the money, because you will be separated from both in a major way. For me it wasn't worth it.
    On my first visit, they took x-rays, many, x-rays, and they did a number of other diagnostics that were not explained well. Some of these (not the x-rays) were done by someone who seemed very inexperienced with the equipment. The explanation for the diagnostics was poor. But, ok, I'm willing to go with their approach. However, there was virtually no follow-up on the diagnostics. I have no clue whether they accomplished anything other than a extra expense. Still, I went along with it.
    I was then told by chriopractor Lynna Lies, after review of my x-rays, that I could be treated just to relieve some of the pain, OR I could be treated to address the cause of the pain. Of course everybody wants complete resolution, so I said that was my preference. In order to accomplish this, I was told that it would require 3 months of treatment, 3 times a week. This treatment included adjustments, therapy, and access to a couple pieces of equipment that for me did nothing. The cost for this service? Over $1200....AFTER insurance. Wow. Ok, so I asked Ms. Lies if this would essentially cure my neck pain. She said, and this is almost a direct quote, "This will get rid of your neck pain". No qualifiers. No "maybe". This was not a hedged statement, it was a definite "yes". So, after stressing over the cost and time commitment, I completed the program, and did all the treatments, and did all the homework. In the end, when surveyed by their office, I indicated that I was 30 percent improved after the treatment. I don't dismiss such improvement, but it was a far cry from what was essentially promised. 
    Ms. Lies then told me that she would need to do more x-rays to see how I had progressed, and how to continue the program. I said "no" to the x-rays. I felt I had already had plenty of x-rays, and there was no clear explanation as to how they would provide a plan of treatment that we were not already doing. At that point, for the very first time, I was informed that it might take another year or so for the "tissue" to heal. Would have been nice to know that at the start, not that I really believe it. I wanted to discuss continuing treatment at a lower level, with fewer visits, over some months. Ms. Lies would not entertain such a plan. She told me that she would rather that I just come in for an adjustment when there was pain. She also said that if I were going to avoid the x-rays, then I would more or less own the results, which is interesting because the results to that point were much less than promised, and I followed the program perfectly. I didn't hear anyone taking ownership then.
    I continued to have adjustments for some weeks after the 3 month period, approximately 1-2 visits per week. When I asked Ms. Lies about maybe just coming in every other week, she looked at me, shrugged her shoulders, and said that it's all up to me now. She basically disengaged, and it seemed very much like a message of "either get the x-rays and set up another plan of treatment, or I'm done concerning herself with my neck pain". Fine, she has that right, but this is not what I look for in a health professional. I actually felt betrayed in a way.
    A couple things to be aware of. The physical therapy aspect is ok, but I saw everybody doing the same exercises and stretches when I was there. This office would no doubt disagree, but to me it SEEMED like a "one size fits all approach". I questioned some of the exercises for neck pain, such as balance exercises. Some of the equipment that you have access to with their treatment plan may work, but it did nothing for me, and for me it wasn't worth paying for. 
    There were times I would show up for my treatment, and would be assigned a completely different chiropractor because mine was out of town. So, I show up for treatment, but my chiropractor doesn't? If I wanted other chiropractors I would have asked to be assigned to one of them.
    Finally, this office ran a big promotional program to get their customers to do online reviews, videos, referrals, etc., and win the chance for prizes in doing so. The bigger the review (like a video) the better the chance for a bigger prize. So, understand that some of the reviews online are no doubt driven by this promotional effort.
    This may be ok for a healthcare provider, but I really do not care of it. 
    I do expect the provider to take issue with this review, as they clearly see online reviews as impacting their bottom line. I have been careful to be accurate and honest about this provider and will be happy to address any point that they take issue with.
    One last point, Lynna Lies seems like a good chiropractor in a technical sense. My issue is with their approach to treatment. I felt misled, and it was very costly.

  • I can recommend Dr. Ericson highly on
    multiple fronts: Speaking as a surgeon (I am a veterinary surgeon), his tissue
    handling technique is superb. My recovery from surgery was rapid and much
    easier than anticipated because his skills are so honed.
    Speaking as a business owner, I am
    impressed by how seamlessly everything works-the front office staff was
    helpful and pleasant, the intake for my surgical procedure was smooth, and
    everyone went out of their way to help me out both pre and post-op.
    Speaking as a patient, I can?t compliment Dr. Ericson enough about the personal, attentive, and intelligent care he gives
    to his patients. He spends a ton of time with each patient, taking whatever
    time is  needed to listen to concerns and answer all questions. He seems to genuinely care,
    taking delight in helping people recover function and diminish pain in their hands and arms.
    He even pegged a diagnosis on me (a connective tissue disorder) that other docs have
    missed for the past 25 years-which will help my health overall.
    I am thankful to him for his excellent care and am returning in 3 weeks for surgery on my
    second arm!

  • We're not going back because he dropped Medicare patients. He's obviously interested in money and not medical care. He said he just didn't get enough money. My wife liked him. He would give you time, he would listen to you but he had a 20 minute appointment schedule and he kept it. At 20 minutes, you're done. My wife really likes him. I thought he was so-so. The office staff was wonderful then he started getting new people and they were terrible.
    - Clinton and Susan W.
  • I've been using them for probably about seven years. I usually can get a same day appointment. They have good medical records and you can usually see the doctor of your choice. The doctors are responsive. They understand your requests.
    - Michal G.
  • I completed several weeks of therapy over about four months from December to April. The therapy consisted of massage, and they taught me several exercises to loosen & stretch the back muscles, fix my posture, and increase core strength. I achieved about 75% improvement in my back pain / discomfort, which I am pleased with. They also showed me how to correct some problems in the way I walk - this also resulted in relieving some knee pain, so that was a bonus!
    Overall I am very pleased with Summit, and would use them again.
    - Carla H.
  • They are the best. We couldn't ask for better doctors. We've been going there for 14 years. She is a doctor who looks into the overall health wise for our family. She coordinates with other doctors so that there is one person who knows everything what is going on and she is very helpful. She is a very kind and considerate person. She listens and she has a wonderful sense of humor. Overall she is a great person. Very trustworthy and upfront. She believes you being proactive in your health care. She would always see us on the same day and we have also been to other doctors in the same clinic once or twice and they have been good too.
