Meet Richard Hicks, our Orange Wellness Patient of the Month for November. He is a patient at our East location in the Waterford Lakes area and has been a member of our Orange Wellness family for about 6 years.
Richard and his family moved to Central Florida from Syracuse, NY about 10 years ago. He found Dr. Eric’s office when he had some painful back issues. After being treated for those issues, he felt a lot better and ever since then he has gone into East Orange Wellness every 6-8 weeks for Maintenance. Although that’s not a requirement, he soon realized that after 6-8 weeks he began having some aches and pains. By going in for Maintenance, he explains that he always feels his best and has been pain free. “I find it so much easier to do my job. I feel good. My body feels the difference if I miss an appointment.”
Richard gets adjusted mostly by Dr. Eric but sometimes sees Dr. Andres. “The quality of care I receive is second to none. The staff is a pleasure to deal with. They are all definitely concerned for their patient’s health and make it a point to understand our daily lives in order to better care for us.”
He adds that “I am always made to feel welcome. There is no such thing as assembly line care. It’s so good to know that whatever it takes to keep us in good shape will be done. I never feel rushed. It’s very nice that when I come to the office, everyone greets me by name. I feel like a member of the family. I really appreciate the benefits of chiropractic. It’s not only beneficial when a person feels bad. I think it’s important to go to prevent yourself from feeling bad”
Dr. Eric explains, “When you talk about a patient that every doctor would love to have, Richard Hicks is the textbook definition. Being an individual in the healthcare field himself as a paramedic, having him know the value of the adjustment just speaks volumes. Thank you, Mr. Hicks for being a wonderful addition to the Orange Wellness family.”
Dr. Eric and the staff at East Orange Wellness & Injury Center look forward to seeing Richard on all of his visits and are so glad they are able to help him feel his best!
Meet Richard Toth, our Orange Wellness Patient of the Month for December. He is a patient at our West location in the Ocoee area and has been a member of our Orange Wellness family for about 4 years.
Richard is a Pharmacist and although he has an extensive knowledge of medicine he prefers chiropractic and yoga whenever possible. He has been treating with Dr. Robert for about 4 years. He first treated with Dr. Jeff at South Orange Wellness in 2000 due to a Disney Injury. The treatment helped him a great deal and he continued with maintenance.
Our West location was more convenient for Richard so he later became a patient of Dr. Roberts. Being a pharmacist means that Richard is standing all day long and that presented back issues for him. By coming in for treatment every week or two, he has been able to manage these issues and feel his best.
Richard thinks the world of Dr. Robert.
“Dr. Robert is ALWAYS in a good mood. He’s professional, friendly and really listens to his patients. The atmosphere at West is relaxed and friendly.”
Richard loves the services that Orange has to offer and he definitely has his favorites that are his go-to when coming in.
“I often use the heated water bed for my tight muscles. It’s called a hydrotherapy bed. It’s so helpful and makes a big difference in how my muscles feel.”
Richard appreciates the hi-tech atmosphere of the office.
“It’s just the right size for getting things done without getting lost. I never have to wait and my time is treated with respect. I always take a few of the crooked pens they give out any pass them out to my friends and associates who would benefit from chiropractic. I look forward to my visits. It’s like visiting friends.”
Dr. Robert and the staff at West Orange Wellness & Injury Center look forward to seeing Richard on all of his visits and are so glad they are able to help him feel his best!
Meet Shana Dragon, our Orange Wellness Patient of the Month for January. She is a patient at our North location in Apopka and has been a member of our Orange Wellness family for about 3 months.
Many people come to a chiropractor because they have been in an auto accident or have some severe aches and pains that they can no longer ignore. Shana came to our office for another reason: she wanted to have a healthy spine. She is a very active mom of three young children under 5 years of age. She didn’t have any major complaints but was having some headaches in addition to some general aches.
Shana is happy to say that in the short time she has been coming to North Orange Wellness, her headaches are pretty much gone and she finds that she’s sleeping much better as well.
“Going to North Orange Wellness is a pleasure. Jennifer at the front desk is so kind and welcoming. Being a busy mom, I appreciate flexibility in scheduling and Jennifer is awesome at fitting me in when I need an appointment. I never have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen by Dr. Kenn. They make it very easy for me to take care of myself.”
Shana is so thrilled with her chiropractic results that she plans on coming in for maintenance visits when her treatment protocol is completed. Her 5 year old came along on one of her visits and wanted to be adjusted as well. Orange Wellness has adjusted children from infancy. There’s no age limits on living a healthy life and she loves the modern, hi-tech office.
“It’s always so clean and a pleasure to visit. Everyone on the staff is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. I feel like part of the family when I visit. I’ve even used the hydrotherapy bed and it was awesome for relaxing my muscles.”
She’s learned a lot from coming to Orange Wellness and she loves that they make her feel like family every time she walks through the door.
“Dr. Kenn always takes the time to make me feel comfortable. He never rushes me and always remembers what I have told him about how I feel. He’s awesome. I’ve learned chiropractic helps the overall body. You might think that an adjustment is just for one spot, but when the spine is adjusted, every part of you feels better.”
Dr. Kenn and the staff at North Orange Wellness & Injury Center look forward to seeing Shana on all of her visits and are so glad they are able to help her feel her best!

Both of them were in a lot of pain. In the few short months since their accident, they’ve noticed a big improvement and Juan is happy to say they are not in pain anymore.

Dr. Kenn always takes the time to make me feel comfortable. He never rushes me and always remembers what I have told him about how I feel. He’s awesome.”

Becky Diaz – South – Patient of the Month – February 2017
Meet Becky Diaz, our Orange Wellness Patient of the Month for February. Becky is a patient at our South location.
Becky has been a member of our Orange Wellness family for about 20 years. She worked next door to our first clinic on Orange Blossom Trail. Her lower back was out of line and she could not move well so her employer told her to walk next door and ask for help. She did and has been a loyal family member ever since.
Becky explains that she “always had back issues and learned the value of chiropractic at an early age.”
Over the years, Becky found that she would go for adjustments when she had pain only. She would then feel better and she would not return again until more aches and pains reminded her to do so. Just like many of us, she “meant” to go for regular adjustments but a busy life always got in the way of scheduling appointments. Then about 4 years ago, she got in an automobile accident and during the healing and treatment process, she realized the importance of being consistent in her chiropractic care.
Now Becky makes regular maintenance adjustments a priority in her life and she feels so much better because of that. She says that her “regular maintenance visits have made an important difference in feeling great.” She brings her son, daughter in for regular adjustments and has referred many of her family members to Dr. Jeff, Dr. Gadiel and Dr. Kenn as well. Her son and daughter have been adjusted since they were toddlers and it has benefited them both. Her son had mild autism and her daughter suffered from dizzy spells. Adjustments improved both of their conditions.
Becky is a holistic practitioner and always explains to all of her clients that there is a strong mind-body connection to well-being. She recommends them all to have their own spinal evaluations and adjustments to feel their very best.
“All the staff and doctors are wonderful” adds Becky. “Everyone is so friendly. There’s a lot of positive energy in the office. The staff gets along well and genuinely likes each other and always seems very happy to see the patients. We all feel like a welcome family member.”
What would Becky recommend to anyone considering the benefits of chiropractic? Without hesitation, Becky says “Be consistent! Don’t stop after you feel better and then wait till you feel crummy to return. If you’re consistent, your body will thank you for treating it well.”
Dr. Jeff and his staff look forward to seeing Becky on all of her visits and are so glad they are able to help her feel her best!
