I've been seeing Dr. B for 2 years for adjustments. I go twice a month, and I also get a monthly deep tissue massage with CC. They are both phenomenal. I originally went after a mild accident which left me with a concussion and a lot of neck and upper back pain in the weeks following. Dr. B and CC have worked with me to help my body heal and bring me to a place in which I no longer experience pain in those areas, no matter the activity. They are both also very patient and willing to answer my questions and teach me about my body + what happens during the adjustments and massages. I used to be scared of chiropractors, but that quickly dissipated thanks to how well they've cared for me and appeased my anxiety and nerves. I highly recommend both of them!

I had never been to a chiropractor before and Dr. Bailey came highly recommended. I was nervous originally but Dr. Bailey made sure I was comfortable, understood what he'd be doing and how it would effect me immediately and following the apt. Additionally, no matter how long in between apts, he remembers his patients and their specific needs. I could not recommend him and the Premier Health staff enough!

Soooo... I don't do chiropractors. Ever since I was a kid, accompanying my grandmother to her chiropractic appointments, I've had an irrational fear of someone "cracking my bones". I've skydived, swam with stingrays and barracudas, and even cliff dived, but chiropractors.... nope. Don't do those. After a slip and fall at work (and the dance performance opportunity of a lifetime back home in DC scheduled for that weekend), I was in desperate need of relief. This practice came highly rated on Yelp, so I put my fear aside and gave these folks a call. Premier Health Chiropractic is located a short distance from my San Francisco office, accepts American Express, and they were able to schedule a last-minute appointment for me that same day. PERFECT! I hobbled the few blocks over to the vintage office building (the receptionist was kind enough to give me directions by phone when I got lost), and was greeted warmly when I arrived. I filled out my paperwork as Dr. Cruze was finishing up with his previous patient. My appointment started on time and Dr. Cruze was amazing! He was not only knowledgeable and demonstrably experienced, but he was excited, legitimately excited, to help me get back on track. The receptionist noted on my chart that I had a bit of anxiety about visiting chiropractors, and Dr. Cruze took the time to explain everything to me, both before we got started and during the process, to set my mind at ease. He assured me that no one was going to be "cracking my bones", but that we were going to focus on healing and rehabbing the wounded area together. He told me what he thought the problem might be based on the preliminary information I provided and what he had briefly observed, and had me perform a few diagnostic "exercises" to confirm his suspicions... and his assumption was spot on. Essentially, I experienced a hip sprain as a result of the fall, and Dr. Cruze set out to manually relieve the tension in my hip and lower back, then put me on a machine to help loosen and being rehabbing the area (with the assistance of a bit of electric current.). I thought my attire might hinder the doctor's ability to treat me (I had on a skirt and blouse that day, with no intention of visiting a chiropractor that afternoon... or ever, as a matter of fact!), but Dr. Cruze was able to work around it with no problem. He was mindful and considerate and I felt completely comfortable (well, as comfortable as one can be with a sprained hip) the whole time. The visit was about an hour and, WOW! What a difference! By the end of the visit I was still in pain, but it had diminished greatly and I was almost able to stand upright. Dr. Cruze sent me home with a simple, web-based exercise regimen to perform daily, which was intended to continue rehabbing the injured area, minimize internal scar tissue development, as well as treat preexisting sciatica on my opposite (uninjured) side. The training program allowed me to log my progress and note any difficulties and challenges I experienced with the exercises. The cost of the visit was well worth what I paid and I appreciate that even in a city as expensive as San Francisco, the visit was surprisingly affordable. I definitely plan to come back for a routine alignment... now that I'm sure that Dr. Cruze won't "crack my bones". :-) As I performed the prescribed exercises and iced the affected area, I felt exponentially better every day. In less than a week, I was 100% pain free and able to walk normally (and in heels!) again. Oh, and I KILLED IT at my dance performance, a mere four days after my visit! Thanks Dr. Cruze! A few things to note about the building: There is no ladies room on the floor where this practice is located (the receptionist offered to block off the bathroom for me, instead of having me hobble to a floor above or a floor below to use the facilities). It can get a bit warm in the office. Like I mentioned, the office building is "vintage", and I'm not certain whether or not they have AC (It was kind of strange to be in a tall building with windows that actually opened, but the fresh air was definitely welcomed).

Dr Nick Cruze is hands down one of the best chiropractors I have ever seen in the Bay Area. I have lived here for 20 yrs and have worked with many practitioners, but this guy knows his stuff. His knowledge is extensive, he has great exercise programs, and he gives a great cervical which isn't so easy to achieve. If you are someone who has had an injury, or need long term care, or just want to get your body checked out for spine alignment and work on posture this is your guy. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I've seek chiropractic help all over the city, and Dr. Nick provided the most holistic care I've ever received. From actual adjustment, to soft tissue work, to helping me understand my body better and exercises that I can do to strengthen on my own. It is sending me on a much faster and steady healing journey than all the other chiros I've worked with.

Dr. Bailey is THE BEST chiropractor in the Bay Area. There really isn't anyone who can top him, and I've been to dozens in the past few years. My family and I have been using chiropractic work to get ourselves out of pain, manage chronic conditions, improve general wellness and balance, and even improve overall health for decades. After our beloved family chiropractor passed away 8 years ago, it had been a never-ending search to find someone with the right touch. If you've experienced chiropractic work before, you know how important a confident, STRONG, and effective adjustment is--and how rare it can be to find such talent in the world of healthcare. Dr. Bailey has helped me to heal from accidents, rid myself of migraines, and improve mobility issues due to RA. He is a healer through and through. If you're thinking about trying chiropractic work or are looking for someone who can actually help you to get out of pain without medication and surgery, Dr. Bailey is as close to actual perfection as you're going to find. He even helped my 75 year old mother to feel pain-free for the first time in months. She had been told from physical therapists and medical doctors that she would probably need surgery to correct her hip and that her sciatica was irreversible. After one appointment with Dr. Bailey, she walked out of his office without assistance and without pain or discomfort. We commute all the way from San Jose to see him, and it's worth every second of traffic to get there and feel healthy. Oh! And if you needed another reason to visit? His receptionist, CC, is kind, helpful and lovely.

My knee took a huge toll from full marathon training. After weeklong pain, I decided to go in to see Dr. Nick Cruze per referral from a good friend. He was able to explain in very clear terms what was happening to my knee and exercises to do pre-workout, post-workout, in between workouts to improve the strength of my knee. I had initially lost hope in running the marathon, but I was able to complete the full marathon (and shaved off 12 minutes off my goal time)! Thank you Dr. Nick Cruze (and Carissa!!!) : )

Dr. Cruze is great! I have seen 5 different chiropractors in SF, looking for the perfect mix of thorough problem assessment, hands on adjustments, specific guidance for at home work, and ease of use with my insurance. He and the Premier Health team are the clear winners. Dr Cruze uses many different tools (including graston, which is what I was looking for with my deep knots, as well as the theragun) and has helped enable me to use my own at-home tools (foam roller, trigger point balls, theracane, or as simple as a wall) to speed up my recovery. I went in for basic upper back stiffness from office work as well as plantar fasciitis. He is also helping me with prenatal alignment. He is very thorough, explains the why behind everything he is doing or the homework he sends me home with, and just generally a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend!

I've been with Dr. Bailey for years now ever since I threw out my back. His work was the only thing that gave me immediate (and lasting) relief. I'm back to 100% now so I don't see him as often but anytime I tweak something, he's the only chiro I'll go to in San Francisco!

Ugh. I love them. I love Dr. Bailey because he is patient, thorough in explanations and always has professional bedside manner with genuine conversation. I love Carissa because she had to fax my MRI order a million times before UCSF finally received it and did so with a smile. I love CeCe because she adjusted to the right pressure during my massage in the areas I was injured. I felt refreshed, and confident in her judgement. Thank you, Premier Health Chiropractic. I always look forward to seeing you!
