"Dr Penner is thorough and listens to his patients"

I have experienced a lot of chiropractic offices and the professional combined with fun-loving atmosphere is incredible. Dr. Penner is thorough and listens to his patients. I find that refreshing. Also, he takes the time to teach exercise techniques to enhance what chiropractic does for the body, to maximize the benefit received.  I highly suggest visiting this office for your chiropractic and massage needs!

Forthright and Honest

When I saw Dr. Penner he had a lot to live up to. I’ve seen the same chrio for 11 years and love him. However, he’s a long schlep (to the north u district) no matter where I’ve lived. I’ve tried to change to more conveniently located chiros four times and never found one whose treatments stuck for more than two or three days, resulting in repeated expensive visits, lost time with work/family and consistent nagging discomfort.

Dr. Penner’s office is very professional, he treated me with respect, his staff and other professionals are pleasant and easy to work with. The office is clean and modern, with all the equipment you would like a chiropractor to have as resources. He knew that I was in a financial bind and worked with me forthrightly and honestly to get the best treatment I could based on my insurance availability. Most importantly after he adjusted me (I have major issues in c2 and c4/c5, and minor issues in th4 and in L2/L3/L4 areas) I felt much better, and now, three weeks later I still feel really good, remarkably so. I think I feel so much better because he taught me a new stretch that really works. It is one of those stretches that requires forming into a pretzel and then pulling at just the right location, something I haven’t come across myself despite many years of physical therapy, stretching, twisting, strength improvement and yoga-ing. I will definitely be back to see Dr. Penner and would recommend to anyone at least one visit to see if you have the same results that I did.

"I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief"

I've been looking for someone to take care of some intermittent back and neck problems since I moved to Seattle two years ago. I tried someone downtown that I'd describe as a cowboy chiro; quick, cocky and painful. I decided I was better off living on ibuprofen, China Gel and my hot/cold pad.

Recently I found Magnolia Chiro & Massage and I'm breathing a huge a sign of relief. Dr. Penner is reassuring, communicates clearly about what he's doing and why, and works with my body's weird quirks very well. Tai, the massage therapist, is also a dream. She has the ability to loosen up or work out things I just thought I was going to have to live with in my old age.

I didn't know you could make a trip to a doctor fun, but the folks at the front desk manage to accomplish it. They work with my schedule and are one of the few medical offices I go to that respect my schedule and are prompt with my appointment times. They make billiing easy too. All in all a great find.

"Are you relying on Meds to Feel Better?"

Magnolia Chiropractic is an amazing place! I had neck, arm and shoulder pain for 10 months. The Spine Clinic at a local hospital said that they could not help me and gave me meds. The physical therapist did what they could but the pain continued. Dr. Penner helped me in about 10 visits at a reasonable price. I am totally off the meds. I worked out at my gym this week for the first time and I feel great! Thanks Dr. Penner and your wonderful staff for helping me so quickly. In our over medicated world, chiropractic is a viable alternative.

"They went the extra mile"

I was amazed at the good customer service here.  I was having trouble with the insurance co and needed receipts.  I was totally satisfied that they couldn't find it...hey, I couldn't find it either.  Later they went the extra mile...dug in several places and figured it out for me.    Aside from that the customer service has been amazing all 8 times we visited. I'm still thinking about my massages from Tai, and looking for another excuse to come back!
