Dr. Licata can be very convincing. He begins with several x-rays measuring your alignment and recommends you bring your spouse in with you for the results. He recommends this so that he can have both financial decision makers together to sign off on a months long treatment plan that is in the $2000 range that is only payable all at once, or through a financing company, meaning he gets his money no matter what. He is very convincing with his presentation and ability to help, but does not accept pay as you go, you must sign up for the plan. I was nervous about it and had I not been referred to him by my physical therapist, I would have never signed up. After signing up, he has you come to an orientation with all of his new clients. This was where I really got the snake oil salesman vibe. He asked everyone in attendance to fill out a card referring people they know to him and asked that everyone write a review for him online. This was before any treatments took place. I didn't refer anyone, nor did I write a review. I thought, "I'll write one once I've had several treatments and see what the outcome is". Once I signed up for the plan, as I was leaving the receptionist said, "it's so gentle, you'll think it's fake." After 12 visits, I can confirm that for me, it is fake as I have seen no change from seeing Licata nor has my physical therapist seen any changes after my visits from him. Needless to say, they are no longer referring him clients. I must also say, that after my initial "adjustment" during my subsequent visits he gave no treatment at all and said I was "aligned". The visit was still a part of my treatment plan and yes, it cost $60 of the $2000k to walk in and have him tell me I was aligned that day. I did speak with the receptionist and told her my concerns, let her know I would like to speak with Dr. Licata about receiving a refund for the unused visits and I never got a response. BUYER BEWARE!
Before starting with Dr. Licata, I was in horrible condition. I was 20 years old, living with chronic Asthma most of my life, chronic joint pains all over my body, and very much over weight at 232lbs. I couldn't workout or do normal activities due to my pains and asthma. All my life I have tried every kind of medicine and many kinds of treatments and nothing ever seemed to work for me. After speaking with Dr. Licata, he said that for my body to heal, it will take time and my dedication to get better, but I will get better. So I decided to give it one more shot.
Just after the first adjustment, I felt different, a good different, and it was uphill from there. Now it has been almost two years, and I have no pains whatsoever, and my asthma is well controlled. I workout out 6 times week, 4 hours a days and im 185lbs now. My life has improved and changed drastically. I couldn't be happier.
Everything about Licata Chiropractic is amazing. The staff is incredible. They are very nice organized and actually care about every patient there. And words can't describe Dr. Licata. He is one of the most genuine people I have met. He wants to help you get better and cares about your wellbeing. He is very educated and loves what he does. What else could you ask for. I definitely recommend Licata Chiropractic.
This is a completely different chiropractic experience! No snapping, cracking, or popping, just gentle adjustments to get you in line. Dr. Licata is very caring, genuine, and honest. I definitely recommend him to all of my friends and family!
Dr. Licata truly changed my life! – The first time I visited Dr. Licata's offices I had been suffering from continuous twitching in the right side of my neck. ?After my initial visit I noticed a tremendous difference in my neck. Today, the pain has entirely disappeared and I have not felt this great in a very long time.
Dr. Licata was very professional, honest, and trustworthy. ?He is not only a great doctor, but a great person. ?I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
FINALLY A NORMAL LIFE AGAIN..!! – 8 years ago I began to suffer from severe pain in my right hip, knee and leg, could not walk properly and could not go up or down stairs. I was fortunate to meet a friend who told me about Dr. Licata and treatment she received with great success. I went to his clinic and I started treatment immediately. With much surprise the next morning after the first session, I could get out of bed without any problems. After three sessions, I had to take a trip where I did tourism, walk long distances, and above all I could go up and down stairs without any pain or difficulty. After a year of treatment and maintenance with Dr. Licata, my life has changed dramatically. Thanks Dr. Licata because today I can live a normal life.
I have been to a number of chiropractors over the years and Dr. Licata was the only one that was able to help me get relief from the chronic pain I have lived with for over 20 years. He is very patient, kind, and compassionate and truly cares about his patients and their overall well-being.
I am 32 years old and have experienced chronic migraine headaches since I was about six years old. At the worst times I had migraines five out of seven days per week. Blinding, incapacitating pain; Through Kaiser, I had gone through migraine clinics and been prescribed many different pain medications and muscle relaxers over the years, none of which worked for long; I started coming into this practice over a year ago and haven't had a migraine since. I can't thank Dr. Licata enough.
Dr Licata has been working with our kids (ages 3 and 5) for the past year and has truly aided in their health and development. As young boys, they frequently fall and injure themselves, and because of Dr. Licata's work, they have been able to be in alignment and at their best. Before being treated, our sons had frequent colds, ear infections, allergies, and now I cannot remember the lsat time they were sick. Our youngest son also had a difficult time developing his language abilities and after a few appointments was speaking much more frequently and clearly. We are profoundly grateful for Dr. Licata's work and who he is, as a very genuine, caring physician.
I came here looking for alternative care to drugs and surgery for my wrist and shoulder pain. I've been seeing Dr. Licata for about 3 months now and have noticed significant improvement in those areas and an overall improvement in my well being. Dr. Licata is genuinely concerned about his patients and gives everyone 110%. He'll tell you straight out if he can help you or not. The only con I can think of is the cost. As of now he doesn't accept insurance, but as long as your insurance covers chiropractic care you can submit it yourself.
Thank you Dr. Licata! – Dr. Licata, who practices upper cervical chiropractic has produced results that I have not seen from any other chiropractor. I have seen benefits with regards to my stiff neck and shoulders. I have also experienced reduced lower back pain.
Skip regular chiropractors who keep cracking you, and go see an upper cervical chiropractor like Dr. Licata to start seeing improvements with your physical ailments. Dr. Licata also takes x-rays before and after treatment which also helps you see the changes.
His care treats the root cause of the problem unlike regular chiropractors who never treat the root problem with such precision. So before you head out to get your neck or back cracked, I recommend you pay Dr. Licata a visit, you will be glad you did.
