Take a look at what our patients have to say about HealthQuest

I came into HealthQuest with severe pain in my lower back, going down my leg. It was suggested I try the decompression for a series of treatments. I did the treatments five days a week then progressed to just four then three days a week.

I feel like a new man, no pain. The staff at HealthQuest is excellent, caring, thoughtful, kind and always there to help.

Thank you and especially to Dr. Cogan and to Will.

To the Wonderful Staff at HealthQuest, Farmington Hills, Michigan:

A world of thanks to HealthQuest for everything you have done.

At the beginning of my illness, I had complicated surgery where a piercing tumor was removed from my thoracic spine. I also had a herniated disc in my lower lumbar spine. I also had a herniated disc in my lower lumbar spine that caused me back and leg pain and tingling in my feet. The pain was so severe I thought I was headed back to the hospital.

Neither physical therapy nor deep tissue massages were the answer to my condition; instead my symptoms seemed to get worse.

The service and care rendered at HealthQuest lowered my pain level and increased my ability to perform simple tasks.

I finally have a chance to live my life again.

The friendly and professional staff, the office atmosphere, and the various services offered at HealthQuest makes for a unique and rewarding experience.

Thanks again to all of you.

I am very pleased with the treatment that this team has done for me. From the diagnosis in May thru all my visits, adjustments, decompression and care through July, I feel that this treatment has been very successful. Again, my thanks to Dr. Cogan, Dr. Slinkard, Dr. Lind, Dr. Morgan, Will, and all the girls at the desk.

For 15years, I have been in pain in my lower and mid back due to degenerative disc disease. After my treatment here I am 99% pain free. I've had two neck surgerys and still had some pain. That pain is also gone. My goal was to avoid surger and I've achieved that goal.

Thank you

I have to say that I was skeptical of chiropractic, but after years of pain in my hip and lef and my MD telling me only how much pain killers I could take until I would need a hip replacement, I decided I had nothing to lose by giving chiropractic service a try. I stopped at the HealthQuest booth at a festival in Northville and after a quick assessment of my alignment, I was invited to come to the offices for a more complete exam. An x- ray showed scoliosis of my spine and I started a regimen of adjustments. It was very soon that I experienced relief from the pain in my hip and leg. Now I am almost pain free and take no pain killers. The unexpected result is that the adjustments also relieved me of head ache pain. Needless to say, I am a true believer in the healing possible through chiropractic services. HealthQuest has really improved my quality of life.

Thank you!

I was suffering from significant back problems and limited mobility having had back surgery several years ago. After 20 treatments on the spinal decompression machine, I felt little improvement and was ready to resign myself to further surgery. I am so pleased that I continued treatment as my mobility returned and pain disappeared by treatment 25.

Although initially skeptical of what the results could be, Dr Cogan and the team were great and accurate in their forecast and my recovery.

Dear Dr. Marty,

I have to admit that on my first visit I was slightly skeptical. I had a pain in my back on my right side for months and was told it was my gall bladder and that it would have to be removed. Funny, but I wasn't experiencing any of the symptoms associated with a bad gall bladder and just wanted some relief from the pain.

A friend suggested I try chiropractic and recommended HealthQuest. She had great success overcoming chronic back pain with your help.

I made my first appointment nearly a year ago and can't describe the difference just a few treatments made. I have been a firm believer in chiropractic ever since thanks to you.

One more thing, I would be remiss if I didn't mention your office manager, Kim. She adds so much to the overall experience insuring each patient has a good one.

Best Regards,
Alice S.

My neck being "off" of adjustment leaves me feeling nauseated from the pain and with a headache. I get immediate relief AS I am getting an adjustment. It's helping me now as I don't take any prescription for the pain anymore and I now do my daily activities and lead a pain free life.

I've had chiropractic care for 30 years and will go there before any medical doctor. I only go see my medical doctor if I am bleeding or suspect something is broken.

My name is Collette Boeck and I want to tell you about my experience with Dr. Sol Cogan and how his spinal decompression treatments helped me. I had been having some serious pain in my lower back for several months. It was getting so bad that I couldn't sit at my desk for an hour at a time without getting up to move. It was so bad that I could not stand for any length of time either. I hadn't had a decent night's sleep in weeks. I couldn't play on the floor with my 2 year old grandson. I couldn't sit at the table long enough to play a game of cards with my family. I had to cancel out of a breast cancer walk that I had been doing for several years. I knew I wanted to get it checked out before surgery became my only option. Two doctors had already told me that surgery was my best option, but I definitely did not want to go that route. I heard about Dr. Cogan and spinal decompression therapy on the radio and decided to attend an open house at one of his facilities. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. As soon as the open house was over, I made an appointment with Dr. Cogan. The results of my MRI showed 2 bulging discs and 1 degenerating disc. I had no idea that I had such serious back problems. I met with Dr. Cogan and we talked for quite a while. He decided I was a candidate for the treatments and decided which machine would be the best for me. I started intensive therapy that day, and 7 weeks later I am totally pain free! I was absolutely amazed at how much better I felt after such a short time. Now I can enjoy my grandson and my family again. And I can work an 8 hour day without pain. I am so happy that I made the choice to check out spinal decompression therapy and not have back surgery.


Frank Deming came into the Bad Axe HealthQuest office on December 1, 2009 after seeing the advertisement for the DRX9000 in the Huron Daily Tribune. He had his wife drive him to the office. His major complaint was radiating neck pain down into his left arm, dizziness and vertigo. He had lost ability to drive because he couldn't turn his neck. Totally unrelated, so Frank thought, six to eight months ago he also lost his sense of smell. Surgery seemed the only option to correct his neck issues and Frank was scheduled for surgery on December 16, 2009.

After a consultation and exam with Dr. Sami Makhoul, Frank decided to try decompression therapy on the DRX9000C. His results were nothing short of amazing.

Frank states that he had some surprising things happen due to treatment. After his third treatment he went home and asked his wife if she was wearing a new perfume. She told him that she had always worn that perfume. He instantly realized he could smell again! This had its benefits as well as its disadvantages. Frank stated that he could also smell the trash can too!

Other differences were also noticed. Frank said he can now look down at things and not fall over. He dropped his coat just before he left the office today. As he was bending down to pick it up he said that he never would have been able to do that before he started treatments.

Frank also said that he is no longer taking medicine for the dizziness he suffered with pre-treatment. He also talked about how his son confronted him and wanted to know why he didn't have the scheduled surgery. His son wanted to know what he had been doing since he, too, could see a huge difference in his dad. Frank, who had been keeping his treatment a secret until that point, told his son. He said that his son was very happy for him and that the treatment was working. Frank shared that the previous year his son had taken him ice fishing because he thought his dad wouldn't be able to go this year. Was he wrong! Frank said that he feels better than he has in a long time.

Here at HealthQuest we are so privileged to have patients like Frank Deming. He had the ability to see the wisdom in the words of Thomas Edison, "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." We applaud Frank for his determination to find an alternative, non-surgical solution for his problem.

My name is David Raferty and I've had degenerative disc disease with stenosis for years. Three months ago I started getting back spasms with back discomfort. I tried the usual treatment with no relief. I then decided to give HealthQuest's Back & Neck Solutions and the DRX-9000 machine a try. I admit I was a little skeptical about the reported success rate with the treatment. But the theory behind it made sense to me. I didn't notice any effect for the first eighth treatments, but immediately after the ninth treatment the usual spasm associated with even changing my body position from horizontal to vertical was gone. Yes, I really wanted this treatment to work but I can't deny the immediate relief after the ninth one. I have been spasm free ever since and the back discomfort has been getting less and less.

The doctors at HealthQuest's Back & Neck Solutions and the DRX-9000 have given my life back as I now enjoy dancing, walking, golfing, working and I am back to participating in a lifestyle of athletics and the outdoors. Together with the DRX-9000 the doctor and staff have provided me with an option to naturally heal my body, eliminate pain block injections, medication and the ability to avoid having spinal surgery. I have amazed family, friends and coworkers as they have watched me immerse from the very bottom of hopelessness to right back up to the top of a 95% recovery because of non-surgical spinal decompression.
