I've been going to chiropractors for many years. This office is very good because they identify the problem and address it completely, without focusing on things that don't matter. I have never felt better.

I have been a chiropractic patient since 1978, and Dr. Friedman is by far the best I have ever experienced. My headaches (severe) used to last for days, even while I was under treatment by another chiropractor. Now they are mild, short and infrequent. Dr. Friedman's staff are all friendly and helpful. Nucca is both gentle and powerful, No crunching or popping, and I have recommended Dr. Friedman to one of my best friends who has very fragile bones in her neck.

I have come full circle in my "journey" to be out of pain. In 99 I was in a car wreck that started severe neck and shoulder pain. It was almost an entire year before my parents pleading to come visit them and see their "chiropractor". I was against it thinking they harmed people already hurting but went as a last resort. The "upper cervical" method was something totally new to me. It helped. For the first time in a year I was able to sleep! So, since we were 4 hours away from the doc, we opted to move back to the Atlanta area to be close to Dr. Friedman-- best decision ever. Dr. F is a perfectionist and highly in tune with bio-mechanics, 2 traits making him great at what he does... mix that with his generous and compassionate spirit and this is the only person I would want to work on my spine, ever. There is more to my story of my journey but these are the key points. I think God for Dr. F!

Dr. Friedman and his staff are so great! Talk about service. They have a way of making you feel like you are the most important patient in the practice. I've suffered from migraines for over 20 years, I've done the traditional chiropractic care with minimal results. Dr. Friedman and his commitment to being the best is the reason I am migraine free today. Do yourself the favor, take the first step to feeling better and go see him.

Dr. Friedman is an exceptional chiropractor, and the NUCCA technique he employs works in cases where other approaches have not. But while his mechanical skill is superlative, I must also applaud him for his perceptiveness. He takes the time to talk to patients about our lives, recognizing that how we manage (or fail to manage) stress on a daily basis is critical to our achieving optimum health. He does not speak to us from on high, but rather sees us as partners in the process. He listens, advises, heals and cares. He is a gift.

I was suffering from the beginning stages of Vertigo when I first ran to Dr. Friedman for help. I am a little skeptical of Chiropractic care, but I knew the moment I met him I could count on him, and oh how true that became. I no longer suffer from the spells, I am no longer afraid to drive, I finally have my life back. I will now be able to safely marry my best friend in May thanks to Dr. Freidman. Aly, his right hand lady, is pretty wonderful too...

Definitely go here. I had headaches/ migraines 2-4 times a month. I went to Alterna health and now I have no headaches. Don't waste money on expensive drugs when you can be pain free without them.

I called Dr Friedman's office after hearing his name from several colleages. I have suffered from vertigo, weakness in my legs, and some low back problems also. After my first correction - I noticed some signifigant changes right away. My legs feel stronger, my vertigo is gone and my low back pain is almost gone! Last week when I strained my back from lifting boxes incorrectly, I called Dr Friedman. Even though it was his day off, he came in to see me. Thank you Dr Friedman. It is so wonderful to have a doctor that cares so much for his patients!

I wanted to say "Thank You" for taking such good care of me and freeing me from back and leg pain. It has been about two months since i started with you and i am still pain free! I take comfort in knowing that no matter when and where, you and your staff will take the time to help me out. You are truly a blessing!

Dr. Russell Friedman is in this buisness just for what money he can make. I only received about 5 adjustment from him. My back pain and hips felt much better after the first couple adjustments. After that pointe, my back pain and hips got much worse. All he had to say was just keep coming in, and I would evently start to get better. During the consultation, the lady scratched out the old price of $65 and wrote in &85 per adjustment. I paid 40% of $85 out of my pocket and he charged my insurance company a $100 a visit. Besides getting terrible adjustment, and being overcharged, he wanted me to retake x-rays after being treated for only two weeks. Of course, he wanted me to pay for the new x-rays after initially paying $500 cash for the consultation that included the charge for x-rays. Please don't make the same mistake I did. Do yourself a favor a look elsewhere.

I had lived with pain since a serious car wreck back in 1983- I was a teenager and hit the steering wheel. I had lived with migraines and a constant head ache. I didn't know what it was like to be without a headache. I went to several different kinds of chiropractors and would get a little relief but not pain free. I went to Dr. Freidman and thought that he didn't do anything, but within the week I WAS PAIN FREE for the first time in over 15 years. It has been 4 years and I get adjusted very seldom and I'M still pain free.

After three "traditional" chiropractors, I was still suffering from pain, discomfort, and instability at the age of 24. I had been injured in a car accident and was not happy with the lack of lasting results from these previous treatments. Dr. Friedman finally set me on solid ground. Dr. Friedman's expertise and exceptional care are in a league of their own. The accuracy of his treatment has produced major improvements that I had only hoped for but never found. He treats you, your time, your investment, and most importantly, your health with the utmost respect and dignity. He is not happy with your results until he can measure the results and you can feel and continue to see the difference. Please do not look anywhere else in Altanta for a chiropractor. Check out his website and read about why NUCCA is so different. You will be grateful that you did.

I have gone to at least 20 different Chiropractors during this past 25 years seeking relief from chronic low back pain. My pelvis was twisted out of alignment and one leg was shorter than the other. Because of this misalignment I could walk only short distances before my back, hip and glut muscles would cramp and spasm. If I pushed hard to walk anyway my reward was a painful sleepless. I love to walk and used to do a lot of hiking and backpacking, needless to say I was becoming discouraged. About four years ago, while we were living in Nevada, I went to my first NUCCA Chiropractor and was impressed with the results. My ability to walk started to improve and I thought I was on my way back to being able to hike. Shortly after we moved to Atlanta, in 2006, I began working with Dr. Russell Friedman at AlternaHealth. He is a Board Certified NUCCA Chiropractor and in my opinion the best NUCCA doctor and best chiropractor I have ever encountered. The results I have obtained so far have been beyond my expectations. In addition to being very effective in what he does, he is a no nonsense, caring, persistent doctor who obviously loves his work and his patients. I have recommended him to friends and family members and recommend him to anyone seeking the best chiropractic care.

Dr. Friedman is very good at what he does. For years I'd been enduring progressively worse pain in my neck and shoulders. Then finally, after a few months of not being able to make it through the work day at my computer without taking 3 ibuprofen tablets, I knew I would have to break down and see a chiropractor. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Russell Friedman. I experienced significant relief after just a couple of visits and was completely pain free after a few months. Now I can work all day and play without any pain. Thank you Dr. Friedman. Sincerely, Vanessa
