I have to write a review for anyone that might need a pediatric or adult neurologist down the line because I am so incredibly impressed by our visit with Dr. Azzolino in SF, at Azzolino Chiropractic neurology and Integrative Wellness. My son has developmental delays and some muscle weaknesses that have been attributed to neurological abnormalities. We had been to a traditional neurologist at Stanford, only to be told the only option was an MRI.
Seeing this office online, I thought I’d give them a try before doing the MRI next summer. I am soo incredibly impressed at how pro-active Dr. Azzolino is. He gets the whole picture, not just the symptoms. And provided things I can do already to improve my son’s condition, from ipad apps, to spinning, to specific exercises, to testing all from a more functional medicine standpoint.
Mind you we are already doing physical therapy and speech therapy, but I was so impressed with the comprehensiveness of this neurologist compared to the traditional western medicine one. After leaving Stanford, I just kept thinking, there has to be something more I can do to improve my son’s condition, from nutrition to exercises, etc. And boy was I right. Visiting Dr. Azzolino was exactly what I was looking for. A doctor that would look at his symptoms from a medical, nutritional, and functional standpoint.
Dr. Azzolino is by far the best Chiropractor I have ever seen.
Over the past 9 months, my son’s (6 and 10) and I travel weekly to see Dr. Azzolino. Before beginning treatment with Dr. Azzolino, I prayed for acceptable behavior from my son’s, but had found it almost impossible for the kids to comply with any level of consistency. Today, their ability to attend to schoolwork, stay on task, follow direction, and maintain appropriate behavior in an appointment/office setting is nothing short of extraordinary. They are more confident (then when we began) and fully capable of conducting themselves properly in general. We owe Dr. Azzolino many thanks.
Another advantage, Dr. Azzolino has clear boundaries with children, which include respectful behavior and cooperation. Holding the kids to this example, they respond beautifully. His technical expertise in accessing and individualizing treatment allows me to relax easily when my children are in his attention, another immeasurable value.
As for me, after many years of a rigid-painful neck I have the full range of movement and functionality again. Shooting neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, etc., are no longer a daily grind, as his adjustments leave me with greater strength and a greater sense of mental clarity.
Trained employees are courteous and knowledgeable, and Dr. Azzolino has staffed his office with talented colleagues as well.
Dr. Azzolino is an accomplished practitioner, and I highly recommend his services.
