After an extremely long health journey that involved so many doctors and five years of my life, I am content because I have a doctor that I trust and have full faith in. When I met Dr. Joe, his approach was different. It was evident from the moment we met that he truly cared. Dr. Joe worked tirelessly and never gave up until he finally found the root cause of my issues. Once we understood my health challenges, Dr. Joe developed a plan to guide me back to optimal health. During the process of testing, reviewing lab results, and evaluating various treatments, Dr. Joe made sure my mental health and stress levels were managed properly. He gave me meditations and pep talks and was a true supporter throughout the entire process. When I was healthy enough to exercise again, he evaluated my exercise routines to ensure that I was exercising optimally for my condition. As I became healthier, he checked in on me and has always been available when I needed him. I know this statement is very bold, but I can honestly say, Dr. Joe saved my life. It feels wonderful to know I am in good hands and that I truly trust my doctor.

Dr. Joe helped me properly diagnose issues MD’s were missing for years. He helped me recover and heal from Giardia and C. Diff - my leaky gut and food sensitivities (oral tolerance) has improved dramatically. My fatigue gone ...and energy restored. I’m very grateful and would highly recommend him. Thank you ??

I have struggled for years to discover the root cause of my ill health. Dr Joseph Smith took the time to listen to my history and ordered bloodwork. He immediately offered a comprehensive plan. Very quickly upon following the plan I saw an improvement in my health. My sensitivity to gluten and gut issues lead to autoimmune diseases that if not for Dr Joseph Smith would have decimated my future. Chronic migraines, joint inflammation, brain fog, chronic allergies and fatigue seemed to control my life. I now experience a full life. Hiking a few times a week. No more migraine, or joint swelling and my sessional allergies are unnoticeable. Dr Joe is my hero!

I am so grateful to have found Dr. Smith. As an athlete who likes to push my body to the limits and a career which compromises my neck and back I have been "fixed" by Dr. Smith many times. I am still amazed at how the partial tear in my hamstring has now been flawless for the past two years and how after moving one weekend and suffering from excruciating shoulder pain I walked out of Dr. Smith's office completely carefree. I don't understand all the techniques and modalities he employes but they absolutely work. He is thorough, attentive and entirely dedicated to helping you feel your best. Bring him your worst problem and he will undoubtedly create an effective treatment plan and solution for you. Thank you so much Dr. Smith!

Dr. Smith is truly a rare find. He is a skilled problem-solver, a trusted adviser, and a gifted educator, inspiring and supporting lasting change in his patients. He helped me understand and resolve some long-term health issues that had other practitioners stumped. He's helped me solve both nutritional and structural issues.

Dr. Smith has a powerful skillset including chiropractic, Applied Kinesiology, naturopathy, and traditional Chinese medicine. He is one of the countries foremost experts in Applied Kinesiology a modality that lets him determine which treatments will do the greatest good to your system. You can see why patients literally fly in from other states to see him. If you're ready for results you should work with Dr. Smith. We are truly fortunate to have him in our community.

I have worked with Dr. Joe for about 5 months now. I've waited this long to put up some "reviews" since health journeys are long (mine included) and I didn't want to make any major statements until I had a good sample size of facts. Anyway, I've decided the facts are overwhelmingly in and here's my major statement: Dr. Joe has truly changed my life for the positive and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.

I found Dr. Joe through an incredible Youtube lecture he gave on "food sensitivity" and after gathering my courage, reached out to see if he was interested in treating me (my issues revolve around allergy, digestion, blood sugar, terrible energy, Eosinophilic Esophagitis, ect). He was and we began our work (which I'm still in the thick of today). As I do not live in San Francisco, we initially skyped and I was so impressed and excited that he actually listened to my health-story (something sadly many health care practitioners don't do). From my symptoms described and a written questionnaire, he ordered a series of tests he was interested in seeing the results of, which I proceeded to do (mostly blood work, some stool). When these results were in, we once again met online and he gave me his ideas and prescriptions (diet, supplements, lifestyle, ect.) which I've been following since and we tweak when needed. Eventually I went up to SF to see Dr. Joe and did a 4-day intensive which was also fascinating and productive. Now we are in weekly contact, we still do tests and tweak my lifestyle, but my symptoms and outlook are miles and miles improved since I started 5 months ago. I feel safe with Dr. Joe. I trust him completely and feel like he really knows me medically, something which is rare and I'm so grateful for.

Dr. Joe is worth every penny, a true, powerful science-based holistic approach to healthcare. He is an incredibly smart and kind person and I am truly honored that I get to work with him. It hasn't been an easy process, but change never is - it is not an exaggeration when I say every aspect of my life has improved under his tutelage. I don't have to feel as bad as I once did. Life doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Joe has empowered me through my health. I am truly, truly grateful. If you are struggling with a health issue that seems too complex to manage (and maybe other Doctors are not listening), I sincerely urge you to give Dr. J a call and see what he has up his sleeve.

This just in!! The amazing Dr. Joseph Smith has curred me of a lifetime of physical discomfort!! I've been to everyone and done EVERYTHING but he was able to figure out exactly what my issue was and what I needed. He is well worth the drive, the money, and the dedication!

I come from a family of western medicine Doc's so I was biased learning about what chiropractic can offer. In just a few months I'm sold. I've never come across a doctor whose job is caring for me as a whole human being- physical, emotional, psychological, spiritual etc.. I have struggled with anxiety and also digestive and GI problems my whole life. In just a few months, I've learned so much! Dr. Joe and other good chiropractors educate you instead of treat you like a diseased person. They bring you to optimal health by not just focusing on reducing the symptoms but by actually going to the root of the issues and allowing your body to learn to heal itself. I trust Dr. Joe and will continue to see him because I have seen such wonderful improvements and I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
