18/04/14 3 2 3 2 In 2009 I had 2 free visits on my feet for neuroma and plantar problems... I was there with my father, so I did not get the sales pitch. It healed both my feet within a few weeks and I have never had problems again. My father got the snake oil treatment and ended up spending $6000. However, to be fair, he went in with pain at a level 10 and after 24 treatments had a pain level of about 4 for the rest of his life, which was the last 5 years. Never did see Dr. Meadors and spent a fortune on foot orthotics which he never wore. The young staff really make a fuss over older people and so I think many go there for company when they are lonely.  Respond

12/02/14 5 5 5 5 I have had 13 appointments of 30 with this clinic and am experiencing a very positive result regarding my back health. He has an outstanding staff, a knowledgeable chiropractor which we see every third visit, a well equipped clinic, a masseuse also available and scheduled as part of the package agreement. I am very satisfied with my the effectiveness of the treatments I have received. Bob Winegar  Respond

08/01/14 2 1 1 1 It was not helpful at all for me at all. They told me that within 20 visits I should see a big difference. That was over five years ago and today I still suffer from back pain after 48 visits. I never even met Dr Meadors in all the time I went there. I strongly feel I through $6500 out the window! Most times I we all waited and waited to be treated. I see the commercials now on TV and want to tell everyone watching not to throw their money away. Take a cruise instead!  See Responses

31/12/13 4 4 1 1 Due to a couple injuries on each side of my back, I have had severe lower (mostly) back pain for almost 20 years. I tried the 2 free treatments and, though the massage and laser treatments felt good at the time, there was no discernible benefit afterward. My general impression was that "Dr." Meadors is running a very efficient racket. From the run'em-through-the-mill marketing approach to his silly appearance in a lab coat with, of all things, a STETHOSCOPE around his neck. Very "doctorly", in a con-man sort of way, but completely useless as a chiropractor. The whole outfit was designed almost completely to extract as much money from people as possible with almost no actual regard for their actual improvement.  See Responses

31/07/13 5 5 5 5 As a result of multiple herniated disc in my middle to lower back I was living in severe pain. I was also experiencing paralysis in my left leg. After FAILED attempts with physical therapy, cortisone injections, medications and traditional treatments my MD's recommended surgery. I was headed for confinement in a wheelchair. When my wife and I saw Dr. Meadors TV commercial we called immediately and scheduled a free consultation. I have now had 25 treatments and I can honestly say I am pain free and have regained full use of my leg. The treatment was painless and the staff was always professional. Thanks to the Utah Spine and Disc Institute I have my life back. I am always recommending the clinic and treatment to family and friends. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who suffers from back pain.....Call and make an appointment. Albert Ray Kinison [email protected]  Respond

27/03/13 4 3 1 1 I've suffered, off and on, from "problem back" issues of pain, stiffness, etc. for almost 20 years, so I decided to try the 2 "free" treatments. As I came in for the 1st visit I was struck by the feeling of being sucked into some sort of processing machine. That continued when, after a pointless 5-minute "evaluation", I was ushered into a room and given a very nice massage and treatment with a laser, all of which was quite pleasant. At the same time I was told about the Meadors outfit in glowing terms, by the pleasant enough attendant. Afterword I had 10-12 minutes in the traction machine in a cramped area chuck full of other people either being "tracted" or waiting to be. From start to end, the whole thing lasted a bit over an hour but, sadly, when I walked out it was with the limp and pain as when I walked in. The same thing happened in the 2nd but it concluded with a 20-visit, $5K+ sales pitch. No sale. Bottom line, it's a money machine for Meadors, nothing more.  See Responses

26/01/13 1 1 1 1 Dr. John Meadors is a modern day thief, a fraud (Well-Known Spine Doctor Charged With Exploitation Of Vulnerable Adult). Look it up, he was arrested in Utah. Here are some links. http://www.kutv.com/news/features/local/stories/vid_...) The Salt Lake County Attorney's Office has issued an arrest warrant for Dr. John Meadors, whose commercials you've probably seen on TV. MURRAY — A Highland chiropractor who practices in Murray is facing felony charges accusing him of exploiting a disabled woman into signing a $6,000 care contract. J  See Responses

14/01/13 1 2 3 1 First off I must say that it was my mother that was the patient. I accompanied her to the pitch and many appointments. During the pitch I should have followed my gut. This guy is a phony. Just take a look at his photo that you see everywhere. When is the last time you saw a chiropractor use one of those. Most of the so-called techs are highshool kids that live in his area, and they don't know what they are doing. After the pitch you will never see Meaders. Even though I am LDS, I have a policy of never going with a provider of any kind of service who makes it a point to let you know he is LDS. For the reviewer who felt discriminated against, dont feel too bad. From my experience everyone is treated that way from three days after you sign the contract. The feeling I got was that they wanted to hurry you through the program and get you out of their hair as quickly as possible.
