Dr. Jack Kucheran's Ratings
I went to one of his weight loss seminars. There were about 15 people stuffed into a small room. We watched a film about all the successes that he had with his program and a general idea of the products available. I booked an appointment for my first ultrasound ($45.00) and the ultrasound told me on the results that I was second level obese and I had high blood pressure and would die of heart disease. All from an ultrasound. The nurse took my blood pressure and I have had excellent blood pressure. I thought I would see the doctor after I was done. No. I had to book another appointment to go over my "results". I came in for my next appointment and met with Dr Kutcheran. I knew the sales pitch was coming when he first gave me a list of what the top 3 weightloss clinics charge you to lose weight. He asked if I had read my ultrasound report and what I thought. You are the doctor, why don't you tell me! So then he shows me that the drops and creams and Alkalined water that we are suppose to drink and eating 800 calories a day' I would lose 40 pounds in 40 days. Then we got to the cost. $1500.00. But if you pay today in full, it will be just over $1200.00. Bam! Right between the eyes. I started to ask him questions about the different things involved and slowly seen his body language change and his answers become more and more curt (I guess he does not like to be questioned ). Just for the record, everyone can lose weight on 800 calories a day! He cut our appointment short and told me to think about it and come back when I made a decision. It really angers me that people like Dr Kutcheran prey on people that are struggling with weight issues. With enough money poured at anything, we will lose weight. Best bet I still believe is probably weight watchers. I least they listen to you and not just your wallet. As a side note, I did have the money for this, just was not willing to give it for nothing!!!!
I had a elderderly parent that was given a break on rates due to an accident. This parent did not have a lot money. When the court cases was settled, from the accident, and the little amont money was received, the rates went back up to full price on what was owing. This was a broken arrangement with my parent. I thought this was sickening and unprofessional!
After seeing the poster about GOD in the waiting room I was extremely SKEPTICAL, he has a lot of passion about chiro care but I feel the whole sales pitch is a little extreme also trying to sign me to a contract reminded me of time share sales pitches and even pyramid schemes. He needs to cut this out I am not sure if I will go back but I will see after a few session how I feel.
He is very knowlegable and wants to educate people on their health and well being. He wants to get to the root of the problem and fix it. It is very refreshing to see a doctor who truley wants to help his patients, instead of giving a pill here and a surgery there. I have only been seeing him for a short time and have already had improvements including almost no headaches (which was a common occurance).
Caring and professional chiropractor! He does not promote the use of drugs or surgery to correct the things that your body can heal on its own. He regularly checks in on your treatment progress by setting up posture checks and x-ray reviews to assess changes to treatment plans. I have a very unpredictable schedule and cannot make it in on most of his appointment days so I get many calls from his receptionists to see when I am coming in again. This might be annoying for some people but I feel like he and his office staff are concerned with my over all health. My back pain has improved significantly though I know it could be MUCH better if I followed his treatment plan exactly!
Doctor and staff have a positive approach and the doctor takes great care in making sure you understand the process after taking X-rays and conducts a 3 hours class every week prior to taking on a new patient to ensure they are comfortable with his methods of correction is 'little and often' to go with a payment plan to suit.
Dr Jack will only see you after going to a 1 hour class to scare you into treatments. Everyone that goes in is diagnosed the same with a "scholiosis" and need to see him 2-3 times per week. Will not take payment at each appointment, has to be a scheduled contract payment. After waiting a very long time past your scheduled appointment time, Dr Jack would come into the room for less than a minute to adjust, hand you the chart and move on to the next, never really listened to issues, and I ended up in SO much more pain in the end and am now seeing specialists for my pain. I could go on much more about his deficiencies and I agree with and have experienced all of the other complaints previously posted and rated. Definitely would not refer anyone to this office.
