I have been a patient of Dr.Thomas for years. She has always helped me get through some of the worst injuries I have endured with the appropriate treatments as well as exercises to help me strengthen my body. She has all the knowledge in the world, is always friendly, and has a great personality. I feel as though her treatments are advanced and i don't ever feel uncomfortable with the movements.

My wife googled for a chiropractor in Markham and found Dr Kiraten Thomas. My wife went for her first visit (by herself) and would ask me everyday to visit her. I've a dislocated shoulder since May30. Its been 5 months and I still have he pain. I also had severe pain in my right wrist due to nerve pinch. So long story short..my first visit was amazing. Dr Kirsten Thomas is a genuine people's person. She is a very experienced and a very humble in nature. It took only 2 visits and I'm already able to move my arm all the way back 360'. My nerve pain on my right hand(had it for 15-18 years) start to show improvement. I'm a kind of person which has probably never types a review but trust me....Dr Kirsten doesn't just medically sound..she is also a very nice human being ..family oriented...humble in nature...very professional, prompt and a definite 5 * worthy. Don't go with what I say. Come visit her and find it yourself.

I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas's for 10 years. I saw numerous chiropractors in Markham before I found Dr. Thomas, once I found her I didn't need to look any further. I have had chronic SI joint issues since the birth of my first child and Dr. Thomas has been the only chiropractor to help me get on top of my symptoms with her ART. You will never feel any pressure from Dr. Thomas to buy a series of treatments like some chiropractors I have come across in the past. Dr. Thomas is on top of her game in this industry, with her professional demeanour and continuous professional development. Dr. Thomas's naturally caring, infectious personality and attentive manner is remarkable. She truly has your best interest at heart when it comes to your treatment, so much so that you will never feel rushed in an appointment with Dr. Thomas. She will always take time to assess you properly and make sure you feel comfortable. You will never feel like a number. I have since moved a half hour out of town and I still drive in to exclusively see Dr. Thomas because she is simply just that good!!

I went to one Chiro who told me I MUST go for numerous treatments for 1.5 years or else I will develop all these other problems/illnesses. This exact same diagnosis was given to everybody in the room. He operated like a production line. What a scam! Thankfully, I found Kirsten here online and let me say she won all those awards for a reason! I had such terrible lower back pain, I struggled to stand up straight and it affected my walking which then affected my knees. Kirsten gave me a thorough evaluation and she found all my weaknesses, she was spot on! She recommended a treatment plan with no pressure, she let me decide the path I'd like to take. In just 2 weeks, I was feeling fantastic. She communicates effectively by phone or email (my preference) which I totally love! She is always on time, I was never left waiting. She takes her time treating you, no rushing. I will continue to see Kirsten for maintenance. Her ART really worked wonders on me. Highly recommend anybody to see Dr. Kirsten Thomas

I have been a patient of Dr. Thomas' for over 7 years. She is accommodating, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and very professional. She actively and regularly seeks out opportunities for professional development through numerous courses, and has achieved success both in the "classroom" (evidenced by her credentials and certificates) and in her practice. The office space is always very clean and neat, and I have rarely (if ever) experienced a wait for my scheduled appointment time. I highly recommend Dr. Thomas, and have done so to other friends and family.

So I've been to other Chiropractors where they either rush you off the table or set a plan for you in the thousands of dollars range. Dr. Kirsten is nothing like this at all! She is very attentive and accommodating. I had terrible lower back pain and within 2-3 weeks of treatment, Dr. Kirsten had me up and about again. The office is a very warm and inviting atmosphere, easy to communicate with be it in person or by email and believe me I've written her novels upon novels! If you're looking for an honest and knowledgeable practitioner then book yourself an appointment asap, I promise you won't be disappointed.

I was so happy to find Dr Thomas 5 years ago after suffering from shoulder malfunction from lugging around my new baby boy! Dr Thomas was able to get my shoulder back to functioning and continued to treat me through the birth of my daughter 3 years ago. Always punctual, very accommodating and friendly, Dr Thomas is a gem!

I have been seeing Dr. Kirsten for 7 years now. Prior to Kirsten I was seeing another chiropractor whose office had a very assembly line feel and the Dr. seemed more interested in committing me to a long term treatment pan than helping me with my scoliosis issues. Kirsten does not take that approach at all. She listens to my concerns and customizes my treatments accordingly. I do not feel that I am being quickly processed in order to move on to the next patient. Very happy with my experience and consider Kirsten to be a regular part of my wellness regimen.
