My Thanks To A “Top Ten Best Chiropractor”

If there is an UPSIDE side to BACK pain, it is the care and treatment of Dr. Holcombe, named “Top Ten Best Chiropractor” in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia areas. I was the front seat passenger in a car involved in a rear end collision. Our vehicle was struck so violently, I fully expected to suffer broken bones and head trauma. I felt fortunate that I was able to get out of the vehicle and walk with only a severe headache as a result. However, one week to the day, I was unable to get out of bed due to debilitating pain in my neck and upper back. I searched for a health care specialist to treat my pain, only to find that most providers would not treat me because my primary insurance would not cover injuries related to an accident. Fortunately, I was referred to Dr. Holcombe and with her care and treatment I was back to regular activities in less than 8 weeks. Dr. Holcombe put me on treatment plan that relieved my pain and I regained lost motor skills and flexibility. Today I am enjoying my golf game and other physical activities as I was before the accident.

When I started the process, I expected nothing. However, to my amazement the third party insurance provider covered ALL my medical, chiropractic and physical therapy treatments. They even gave me a fair and equitable amount for my pain and suffering in about six weeks after completing care.

The accident changed my life; Dr. Holcombe, being a beautifully smart and skilled healer, brought me back to a normal life. I’ve experienced first hand why she’s been named Top Ten Best Chiropractor.

Wow, We Feel Great!!!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Dr. Holcombe and her terrific staff for all the attention and care that was given to me and my son during the 2 months of Chiropractic and Physical Therapy treatments at Jefferson Spine and Injury Center. In September of 2009, I was in involved in a rear end car accident collision. A week and a half later I started to feel pain in my neck and upper back that I never had before. My son suffered from neck pain. I didn’t know what to do or where to go to get help for our neck and back injuries. I called around and no one would see us because we had no health insurance. They said I’d have to pay cash to get treatment. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Holcombe‘s office saying that she would help us to recover from our injuries and that I would not have to pay if I had a claim number from the insurance company. He was right!

Dr. Holcombe was there at every moment of my recovery and she always amiable every time we went for our office visits. She explained, to a level that even I could understand, that we had suffered soft tissue injury damage to our muscles and ligaments as a result of the rear end auto accident. Our injuries are now healed and we both feel great. I also had no problem with the insurance company and was able to settle our third party bodily injury claim within a few weeks after treatment. To the doctor, once again I give many thanks.

To all the people who’ve been in an automobile accident and need treatment – go see a Chiropractor. Not just any Chiropractor, you need to see a doctor like Dr. Leslie Holcombe who specializes in the treatment of soft tissue injuries such as neck pain, back pain, shoulder/arm pain, headaches, etc. after an auto accident. You’re in good hands with Dr. Leslie Holcombe of the Jefferson Spine and Injury Center.

More I know More I Realize How Much I Don’t Know – A Chiropractic Story

I have been always suspicious of Chiropractors, especially in car accidents without any broken limbs. At least until I became involved in an accident that produced a whiplash for me and other problems for my wife. Otherwise we were both feeling well. Since the guilty party’s was going to cover my expenses I decided to visit Dr Holcombe who treated my stepson for the same problem two years ago. A wise decision but I did not know it yet.

The first visit took place five days after the accident, after I developed a dull pain on my neck and left arm above the elbow. I could not make the association until I saw a diagram on the wall with nerve and tissue connections between those areas (numbered 5 on the chart) with the C2 vertebra of the neck. I was wakening up at the middle of the night with pain coming and going.

Couple of months later, after several massages, electric stimulation, ultrasonic treatment, appropriate exercise and doctor’s adjustments, the pain subsided and I sleep again. A second opinion by an Orthopedist confirmed the healing and reinforced it with anti-inflammatory medication. Now I am good to go!

My boss told me recently that 10 years ago he had exactly the same accident. He did nothing, took whatever money the insurance gave him and forgot about it. Not for long. Two months later the pains appeared and he was not able to sleep on his stomach. He had to pay for therapy from his pocket but the pain never went completely away. He still does not sleep on his stomach.

The philosophy of the story is that unless we have the proper specialized education, we do not know about the kind of internal damage a human body can receive and develop silently until it is too late to correct without long term consequences. Our body is the greatest machine at our service during lifetime. If we do not take care of it, it will let us down when we need it the most. Ignorance is not a virtue. Prevention is.

So thank you Dr. Holcombe for this wonderful thing you do with and for your patients that really works.

Dear Dr. Holcombe

I’m so glad my Medical Doctor’s office referred me to your office for my care.

I am writing to convey my sincere appreciation for the excellent chiropractic and physical therapy treatment my daughter and I received at your injury clinic following a terrible auto accident in January of 2008. When I reflect back to the intense constant pain and discomfort I was experiencing in my head, neck, shoulders and hip I assumed that I would be living my life on pain medication. Surgery and drugs were never mentioned when we sat and discussed my treatment plan. Now, the difference in my condition is like night and day. I noticed a complete difference after a couple visits to your office. Through the chiropractic treatments, physical therapy and massage therapy, I no longer have the constant pains traveling up and down my neck and hip. No matter if I’m doing a lot of walking, climbing the stairs or just sitting at my desk, I don’t have to suffer from the discomfort of pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back.

Thank you so very much for your help, understanding and patience. From the moment you arrive in your office, you are greeted with warm and trusting personalities, I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to you and your wonderful professional staff.

Dear Dr. Holcombe

I would like to express my great appreciation to you for your great care after being involved in three car accidents in an 18 month period. Your detailed examinations and your expert chiropractic adjustments brought me back to health each time. Your attentive and very professional staff always made me comfortable in your office. In addition to being a skilled chiropractor, you really went the extra mile for me in every way. You educated me on the importance of ensuring that I had Medical Expense Benefit Payment Coverage ( Med-Pay) on my auto insurance policy in the event that I am ever injured in a car accident. I had the Med-Pay coverage and it was so beneficial in helping me because, with my medical bills already paid, I was able to maximize my own third party bodily injury settlement offers in just a few months. Most importantly, I saved 33% of my total auto accident settlements by handling my own bodily injury claim using the information provided at www.settlementcentral.com!! Your work ethic reaches well beyond professionalism because you want your patients to be healthier, happier and well informed in every way. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Clarence B. Ph.D.


Dear Dr. Holcombe

I am very grateful for the help you provided me to get back to my regular activities. After experiencing a very severe car accident a few months ago I began to feel very fatigued, experienced numbness of my fingers and hands, had recurring neck and back pain and headaches.

After trying multiple therapies including physical therapy and medications, I didn’t know what else to do. Once I started receiving your skilled chiropractic adjustments combined with physical therapy and massage therapy, I started to feel like a new me. Now I can finally spend my time with my children WITHOUT PAIN!

I also had no problem settling my bodily injury claim with the third party insurance carrier myself. Because of your knowledge of proper soft tissue documentation, the adjuster made me a fair offer and my claim settled in less than six weeks.

Thank you and your great staff at Jefferson Spine & Injury for all of your help.

Dear Dr. Holcombe

A friend recommended that my daughter and I come to Jefferson Spine & Injury Center for treatment of our injuries after an auto accident. I am so thankful that we did

We settled our bodily injury claim with the third party insurance company without using a personal injury attorney and got a settlement that was 3 times higher than the amount received when I used a personal injury attorney for a previous accident that was much more serious.

Again, my daughter and I thank you and your staff very much.

Dear Dr. Holcombe

As you know, I am a 21 year old student-athlete enrolled at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was one of several persons involved a car accident during break from school in December 2007. All the other passengers in the car accepted a very small settlement check immediately offered after the accident by, State Farm Insurance Company, the third party insurance company, except for me. I decided I needed to get myself checked before returning to school, so I went to the hospital at least once and was released. When I returned to school, I continued to have pain in my back from the auto accident and thus had to sit out most of the basketball season. Several months later, the State Farm insurance adjuster simply mailed me a release to sign for $3,000 for my ER medical bill and any future medical care. I didn't sign it and thank God I didn't! Upon returning to Alexandria for summer break, I continued to have pain so I found your office and made an appointment to come in and see you. I am so glad I did. All I had was a CLAIM NUMBER from State Farm Insurance company and you proceeded to examine me and determined that I was suffering from soft tissue injuries to my back that had not healed properly as a direct result of the auto accident I was involved in months earlier. I began Chiropractic treatment and physical therapy at your office and finally started to feel better.

I just want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful job you have done for me. Without you all caring about me and my situation, I do not know what would have happen. You did not turn me away, like so many other offices, just because I waited some 6 MONTHS AFTER my accident to finally get treatment for my “back pain”. Dr. Holcombe, you went above and beyond to treat my back pain and help me to fully recover. I successfully negotiated and eventually settled my own third party bodily injury claim for way more $$ than I would have ever thought!! The adjuster even said he had to offer me more money because of your thorough documentation of my injuries and because of my written explanation of my pain and suffering even though it was months after the whole situation. So I just want to thank you and the staff again for all the hard work you put in to get me where I am now. The treatment was great and I am finally in full swing again playing basketball for my college team. I plan on coming to visit you again real soon as well as referring all my friends and family to you if they're ever involved in a car accident.

Many Thanks,

Mylinda D.


Dear Dr. Holcombe

I'm writing to express my sincerest gratitude for your help and treatment after my car accident on June 28, 2005. Although it has been a long road to recovery, I am so grateful for your advice to use my Med-Pay to cover my medical expenses associated with the accident. I didn't really know what exactly Med-Pay was when I chose it, but it was truly a lifesaver. Since I had elected to pay for Med-Pay Coverage under my car insurance policy, it made my life so much easier when I came in for treatment to your office. All of my medical expenses were covered by my Med-Pay with no out-of-pocket costs to me. I simply filled out the paperwork in your office and your staff took care of the rest. This was so important to me during a time when I was in immense pain and could not think straight. My Med-pay coverage made it easier for me to concentrate on my recovery.

I would recommend anyone who is driving a car to add Med-Pay to their car insurance coverage. It does not cost much and has so many benefits. Plus, it does not affect your insurance premium! Thank you once again for all your care and concern during my healing process.

Sincerely,
Julia B


Dear Dr. Holcombe

I can't thank you enough for your healing touch and help after being involved in two consecutive auto accidents this year. In each instance, I received excellent care and service from you and your staff which was very comforting. You have a thorough understanding of evaluating, treating, explaining and documenting "soft tissue" injures that result from low impact or minor vehicle damage accidents to your patients and to the insurance companies. As a result, I was able to successfully settle my own bodily injury auto accident claims which saved me time and money than if I had hired a personal injury attorney!

Again Thanks,

Fatmata L., RN


To Jefferson Spine Center

I was in a low-speed car accident and was treated by Dr. Holcombe for the whiplash injury that resulted. In addition to the excellent care provided (which allowed me to get back to myself quickly), Dr. Holcombe and the other staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about auto accident injury claims (e.g Med-pay/PIP claims). Dr. Holcombe referred me to several great web sites, which had information regarding how to deal with adjusters, write a demand letter, and how to determine an appropriate pain & suffering settlement. As a result, I was able to ensure my Virginia Auto Accident Claim was settled quickly and fairly.

Thanks Dr. Holcombe,

JR


Dr. Holcombe

I am a Hispanic American senior citizen. When I was injured in a car crash I didn't know where to go or what to do. All I knew was that I was in a lot of pain. I finally went to see an Urgent Care Physician who referred me to your office for Physical Therapy and Chiropractic care. I am eternally grateful to have received such excellent and professional care from you and your staff after my auto accident. Because of you I have my life back. I successfully settled my own Virginia auto accident bodily injury claim with the 3rd party insurance carrier. If I could do it... anyone can!

Thanks and may God continue to bless you,

C. McClain

Dr. Holcombe, Thank you so much for helping me with my low back and leg pain. When I first came to see you I could hardly walk and was in constant pain. After only a few weeks of your care, I felt GREAT!  My pain is gone and I feel like a new person. I am so glad my doctor referred me to your office for treatment.

Again Thanks,

Dr. Holcombe

Thank you for recommending Shaklee vitamins to me. I had been taking another popular vitamin brand for years but I decided to try Shaklee anyway and I am glad I did. After taking Shaklee vitamins for about one month I noticed an immediate increase in my energy level and I just felt good all over. Shaklee has definitely changed my mental life and I recommend it to anyone, especially those people over 50 years old.

Dear Dr. Holcombe

I am writing to express my gratitude for the excellent chiropractic care I have received from you and the staff at Jefferson Spine Center over the past year. My recovery from a serious spinal injury has been remarkable due to your excellent care and therapy.

Approximately one year ago, I suffered a herniated disc in my lower back. I was in severe pain and scheduled with my regular doctor. I was prescribed pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxers - none of which helped. I was experiencing pain in my left hip and leg that was so severe my daily activities were greatly limited. I couldn't stand or walk for more than a minute at a time and nothing seemed to help. Friends and colleagues suggested various courses of treatments ranging from extended drug treatment to neuro-surgery. Finally at the urging of my sister, I scheduled an appointment with you.

Although I was skeptical of the effectiveness of chiropractic treatment at first, your thorough, educational approach convinced me that I might be able to recover my mobility and former life style without resorting to drugs or surgery. And so, I began your regimen of regular treatments and simple exercises to help relieve not only the symptoms of my condition, but also correct the underlying causes of my pain. The results were nothing short of amazing!

In just a few short weeks, my pain was greatly reduced and I began to experience greater flexibility and mobility. During the course of the past year, I have continued regular chiropractic treatments at your clinic and am now able to do all the activities that I enjoyed prior to my injury. In the past six months, I have been fishing in the gulf of Mexico, hunting in the mountains of my home state, and enjoyed a host of other activities that I feared I might never be able to do again. I think I owe my recovery to your gentle, caring treatments and following the regimen of simple exercised and good spinal health tips that you prescribe. Thank you again for your kind, professional care - I don't know where I would be without it!

Dear Dr. Holcombe

I would like to thank you for seeing me on short notice. I appreciate the time and patience you took to thoroughly explain to me my spinal condition and what my Chiropractic care options are going forward. Also, thank you writing a Medical Statement of Need for the purchase of a comfortable mattress. My neck and shoulders will definitely benefit from sleeping on a better mattress.

I think in the coming weeks I will follow your suggestion and consult with a Neurosurgeon again to see what my best treatment options are at this time. If further Chiropractic care is recommended, I will certainly be back to see you soon. You are highly recommended by me to my friends and family in need of a good Chiropractor for treatment of their neck and back problems.

Thank you,

M. O.


Dr. Holcombe and Staff

I am happy I came to the Jefferson Spine Center after my auto accident. I enjoyed the treatment process and now I can truly appreciate the importance of maintaining a healthy spine. As a result, I plan on using chiropractic care in the future.

Thank you for your time and attention.

B. Anderson


Dr. Holcombe

I want to thank you for your very human chiropractic therapies. Thanks to your knowledge, patience and professionalism, I am now pain-free and able to Lumba and move around confidently. I don't know what would have happened if I had not decided to visit a chiropractor - and not just any chiropractor! Thank God for guiding the computer mouse to your name!!

Many thanks to the staff at Jefferson Spine Center for your care and concern in helping me overcome severe pain in my back and legs resulting from herniated disks.

Dr. Holcombe has been very professional and supportive in dealing with my problem. Your "bedside manner" has been reassuring. The office staff have been friendly and helpful.

My only wish is that I had come to your center sooner, thus avoiding months of unwanted pain. I recommend your center highly

Again, I thank you!

Dear Dr. Da Roche

I just want to thank you for referring me to see Dr. Holcombe at Jefferson Spine Center. I was in so much pain and she knew just what to do to help me. My recovery has been a slow process but with the chiropractor adjustments and physical rehabilitation I've received here, I feel GREAT! You have no idea how nice it is to be able to get through the day with NO PAIN and without medication. I've been to other doctors and they just didn't help me but Dr. Holcombe changed my life and I thank you for it.

Thanks Again,
