“I have unfortunately been in several car accidents in the last decade, but fortunate to have found Dr. B! He has helped me every step of the way every time I needed him. Elsie ( the office manager) is always so friendly and a tremendous help with the paperwork nightmare that comes with accidents. She has always helped refer me to other sources when needed, and I have always been taken care of well. They have a great network of professionals they work with and I really appreciate that.

Dr. B has always been very gentle and understanding of what I was going through. Which is very much needed when you have just been in a traumatic situation. I always feel like he listens and really tries to figure out the cause of my pain. I have always been able to end my treatment plans pain and stress free! I am very grateful for him and his staff, and now I do maintenance whenever I am feeling a little off (and to just say hi to them).

I have recommended plenty of friends and family to him over the years, and everyone is always more than pleased with his approach and treatments. Thanks so much for all that you do!”

“My impression of Dr. Berntsen is that he is a gentle and caring man. His treatment relieved some acute back pain.

I’m sorry to report that he will no longer treat anyone enrolled in Medicare (even if only ‘Part A’). I guess it’s a valid financial decision, but I’m sad that it keeps me from being treated by him.”

“I first met Larry Berntsen in 2006 after a car accident. I was very afraid of chiropractic treatment, but was in a lot of pain. I have been a loyal customer and advocate of his since that time. I would heartily recommend him to anyone needing chiropractic care. His staff (Elsie) is kind and helpful as well. Larry has a great sense of empathy and concern for his patients, and it shows in his demeanor. You can’t fake good service and concern for the patients. Not to mention, he is an excellent chiropractor with a great skill set.”

“I’ve been uncomfortable for a couple of months… but never really bad enough to warrant a trip to the chiropractor. When a good friend of mine woke in near tears with a kink in her neck I knew exactly who she needed to see. After thinking about it, I decided I didn’t have to live in (even mild) discomfort – which was hindering both my work as a contractor as well as my passion for surfing. So I called and made back to back (pardon the pun) appointments – for today!

Sitting here in the lobby waiting for my friend to finish her session, I’m amazed at how much better I feel. The heated electo-massage and Dr B’s magic touch and I’ve got full range of motion in my neck again and that persistent feeling like something was off in my back is gone! Hoot!”

- Vanessa B.

“Dr. Berntsen is so gentle. He tells you what he is doing and makes sure you’re comfortable every step of the way. I never have to wait more than few minutes to get in, even if I don’t have an appointment. His office is warm and welcoming and his staff is friendly and immediately put me at ease.

Dr. B’s adjustments are always comfortable and his heat and electro therapies help to loosens up the muscles in my back before he adjusts me. He is also 6 and a half feet tall and has no problem working on a larger body which is great for me since I’m 6 ft. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced, ethical, expert chiropractor in the East Portland area. ”

“The staff was friendly, caring, and compassionate. I’ve been struggling with neck and shoulder pain from a recent car accident, but after seeing Dr.Berntsen I feel so much better.”

- Matthew Lynch

“Dr Berntsen is an amazing Dr, I went in to have my back adjusted in March of 2014 and I was greeted by Elsie at the front desk and she helped me fill out the paperwork and after that Dr B came in and me took a treatment room and talked to me about my health concerns and we formulated a plan to help my back and neck. Dr Berntsen has a gentle touch and the treatments helped me get out of pain quickly.

Around October I was having some issues with my left knee and I went to Dr B and We looked at my knee gave me a small knee brace to wear and a list of things I could do to improve my knee and lessen the Pain. Dr B is Amazing!”

“I have been a loyal customer of Larry Berntsen (Berntsen Chiropractic) since early 2006. I strongly recommend him for treatment after a car accident or general treatment. He has excellent staff, and a great level of personal care.”

- Jamin Rak

“Dr. Berntsen is one of the most gentle chiropractor I have ever visited. He listens to your concerns. He spends enough time with you to ascertain the problem. He is an excellent communicator. I would recommend him to any and all!”

- JR

“Dr. B is a fantastic chiropractor who really cares. He is very detailed in his exam and listens to your concerns. I send everyone I know to him! He is compassionate about his work and it shows. His staff is very knowledgeable and helpful if you have ever been in a car accident. Thanks Dr. B, you are the best!”

“I have a terrible fear of chiropractors, having had several bad experiences and having trust issues with my body from abusive situations in my past. “Dr B” is a gentleman who is also a gentle man. I enjoy his calm, quiet, friendly manner of speaking as well as gentle, considerate adjustments. He’s easy to communicate with and will try different methods of adjusting me that make me less fearful. The office itself is nice, although if you have allergies it can be dusty inside. The front desk lady speaks Spanish and is very conversational with whomever is in the waiting area, although, if you are shy and anxiety-prone as I am, you may find her a little in-your-face and the only anxiety producing part of the visit. I strongly recommend you try them! He also has a friend who is a great medical massage therapist I see around the corner. :)”
