“i meant to write this review for these guys for a long time.After staying at a house for 4 years, our landlord decided to change a lot of the deals with our house, we started looking for a new house.After spending days looking on the internet, we drove around all the West lake area to find a new ...”
All the doctors are Vietnamese - apart from Dr Gallivan, who is away until the end of June 2014 - so calling it an international clinic is stretching it a bit. He is great, but he's not there now and I don't want to risk getting treatment from a doc no one has recommended yet...
Also, best to speak to the receptionist in Vietnamese for the sake of clarity. (In English I was told the doc wouldn't be back at all...)
This place is amazing. It is a state of the art, top of the range, modern Chiropractic clinic with all the kit that a group of western Chiropractors could need. They sorted my back and neck out in next to no time & I am a happy man again. It is staffed by western, English speaking chiropractors all of whom seem to have brilliant qualifications & basically, a man in pain couldn't ask for more.
I was treated by two chiropractors called Cassy & Jason, both of whom have an absolute gift at realigning all the bits that have gone out of whack. It is the best & most professional looking clinic that I have been to, as most of the ones back home in England have none of the kit that these guys have & only half the qualifications.
Pricing worked on standard lines for a Chiropractic clinic & you can pay in Dong or Dollars, as you prefer. The initial consultation cost me $30, followed by $25 for the treatment. You only pay the initial consultation fee once & after that it is $25 each time, unless you need something specifically extra like an x-ray, which costs more obviously - I didn't need one, so I don't know how much that would cost though, although all of the prices that I saw seemed more than reasonable, so I guess that it too would be nice & affordable.
The staff are wonderful. They are highly qualified, highly motivated & highly gifted western Chiropractors with all the right kit at their disposal. I cannot recommend them highly enough & if you are in pain, then this is the place to go. 5 out of 5 stars, & if I could have given them more, I would have.
Nicely affordable prices, top people & amazing kit in a brand new clinic. This is just what Hanoi needed & makes such a welcome change from the rest of the medical practitioners in Hanoi, who seem to charge the earth.
I have had back pain for almost 3 months. I was fortunately introduced to this wonderful place by my American friend. I have undergone 4 times of treatment and I feel much better. The doctor is American guy who is friendly and very professional. He did my spinal manipulation very professionally. and nicely
Staff are friendly and very helpful. They are very attentive to your request.
The clinic president is so energetic and keen on the work at the clinic. I have talked with her a number of times and I admire her for her ambition to open the first Chiropractic clinic in Hanoi.
Overall, I enjoy the service here and would highly recommend those with back-pain to use the service at this clinic
After almost 2 months of traveling on local buses on bumpy roads through Yunnan (China) and Vietnam, sleeping on wooden planks as only available mattresses in local villages and the hostel beds in general not being the most comfortable ones, I was in much pain when I reached Hanoi.
I've been receiving Chiro treatment in the US for the past 2 years and my body was screaming for an adjustment. We've been going for massages and some Chinese version of Chiro but somehow my back was still in much pain.
Thanks to justintime and jay77, I found the International Chiropractic Clinic here in Hanoi and was thrilled to learn that they are also open on weekends.
I was treated by two extremely seasoned chiropractors - yes, 2 experts at once! Never had that in the US. One is from the US and the other one is from Canada. Also, they spend about 1 hour for examination and treatment which felt like a rare luxury (in the US one can be lucky to get 15 min.) Both had great knowledge and I particularly liked the fact that the one from Canada followed his intuition and tried out a couple of things to identify the problem. They did magic and put me back into shape. Really, I hadn't felt that great for a while!
They also gave me a set of exercises to do (as well as pointing out which ones i shouldn't do!), most importantly, they didn't just send me away with them but when they met my husband who was in the waiting area, they told him to remind me to do my exercises. And he surely has, which again encourages me to do my exercises even more (although after all the pain and discomfort, I was pretty motivated.)
The equipment and facilities are top notch, the female staff is dressed in pink nurse outfits, giving the place a little bit of a bizarre feeling.
There are a couple of things the clinic management could improve though: on the door, there is a sign saying that you can pay with credit card (I think it was Master card), but I was turned away being told that on weekends they can't accept credit cards. I don't know whether that's the case here in Vietnam, thought it was odd. Cash was accepted in Dong and USD.
Examination was USD 30 and treatment/adjustment USD 20. A fair price but I had to ask multiple times beforehand in order to learn what they'd be charging for as the list on their "menu" seems rather long. I kind of had wished that there was the following flow:
initial consultation with Chiro doc, marking on the "menu" what the doc was recommending. That way I would know what I'm signing up for.
Obviously, later the Chiro doc might want to add some other treatments or not, but at least that would keep it clear and make the patient feel more reassured rather than lost in communication barriers.
Anyways, I am thrilled to have come across this clinic and can highly recommend it.
I feel somewhat embarrassed to hand out five stars but only because I always wonder myself if the reviewer is actually trustworthy then. I considered giving ICC 4,5 stars but that would be kind of stupid to do just to be taken seriously right? I have been to several physiotherapists and regularly go to chiropractic clinics in my home country Denmark. This experience was, however, the best so far. So, the stars are actually well earned for the following reasons:
The clinic is brand new, clean inside-out and very well equipped, better than at home. I filled in a detailed self-assessment scheme and the physical examination was really thorough and competent. Dr. Jason could tell where the problems were located just by using his hands, not like the tonnes of "massage therapists" here who don't seem to know how you relieve pain and whether the problem is in the bones or the muscles. No padding on the back at ICC!
The doctors are currently English speaking expats from the US and Canada so I felt totally at ease.
I was "cracked up" in ways I have never tried before, from my head to my toes, literally. Felt so relieved afterwards. Tried new machines I have never come across before too, had a shoulder and neck massage, which was just right and far away from what they teach the massage therapists here.
I think I was there a full hour and paid only a little more than 500.000 Dong. At home, it is really fast in and fast out. At ICC they had time, skills and enthusiasm.
I could have done without having a very young Vietnamese nurse sitting on each side of me watching me for 15 minutes while I had an ice compression. There was nothing for them to do and I did not feel like chit-chatting at that point. But, well, I survived that kind of "extra" service too :-)
Since this was my best experience within physiotherapy/massage/chiropractic I would recommend ICC and a consultation with Dr. Jason to anyone.
I am happy I found this place and know where to get proper relief, even though I am far from home.
