“A Doctor’s Confession to the City of Mount Airy…”
And why, despite all, I still do what I do…
Confessions are tough. Real tough. But, sometimes a confession can set the record straight, and I want to give credit where credit is due. Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things first.
et me start by explaining the photo in this letter. You know, when I meet people in town they usually say, “Oh, yeah, I know you, you’re Dr. Kim. I’ve seen your ad with that picture of you and the cute kids.” Well, I’m the big one in the middle.
Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever.Let me tell you my story.
Back then I was a six years old my head throbbed all the time from really bad headaches. I couldn’t concentrate at school, I was crabby and I didn’t feel like playing. I was miserable child. After a while I got so used to having headaches I quit complaining about them. One day my mother noticed that a whole bottle of 100 aspirin was gone. Mom asked me, “How many did you take.” “All of them I said.” She freaked out!!! “Two every time I have a headache.” I said.
A friend of my Mom’s convinces her to give their doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam on my body, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and I can use my head again. I will never forget that day for the rest of my life. Suddenly I was a normal child. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? It worked so well for me, and was so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself.
Now for Amanda, who is the little girl in the photo. Amanda was born premature and every day of her life she had an ear infection. Amanda was constantly on antibiotics and between the ear infections hurting and the antibiotics making her feel sick and ruining her immune system she was a mess. Three years ago I adjusted Amanda for the first time and she has NEVER had another ear infection! That seems like a small thing, but it makes a huge difference to her.
The furry kid is my dog Dobby. I have three dogs Dobby, Cotton and Sparkles. That is how I ended up in North Carolina. I promised my dogs I would move somewhere that was wonderful for them live.
The two boys in the picture are Cody and John. Cody gets headaches and seizures sometimes John’s back hurts. They know enough to ask for me to fix them. It’s funny how kids are smarter that grown ups sometimes. Kids know that it is better to get their problem taken care of than to take drugs. It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their Headaches problems. Also they come to me with their carpel tunnel, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, backaches, asthma, allergies, legpain,numbness in limbs and athletic injuries, just to name a few.
Here’s what some of my patients had to say:” Since I came to see Dr. Lewis my arm pain is gone. Not only didn’t I have to have the surgery that the other Dr. thought I should have, I didn’t even miss any work.”- (Jimmy J)
“Before I came to see Dr. Lewis I had a headache every afternoon. Now, no more headaches and no neck pain!”(Natile W)
“The back and heal pain I had for five years had made me stop doing a lot of the things I like to do. Now that I see Dr. Lewis my heal pain is gone and my back pain is lots better. I am looking forward to having an active lifestyle again. I sing Dr. Lewis’s praises.” (Ashley B)
After a bad auto accident I was on a lot of strong pain killers. I thought I would always hurt and never be the same again. Thanks to Dr. Kim I don’t even take an aspirin for pain. (Gary H) Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems.But I can’t really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything! What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It’s as simple as that!
Being a chiropractor can be tough, because there’s a host of so-called experts out there. They tell people a lot of things that are just plain ridiculous about my profession. But the studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed that over 95% of patients who saw a chiropractor were highly satisfied with their results. That’s just incredible!
Fifty-eight million Americans no longer have health insurance, and those who do have found that their benefits are reduced. That’s where chiropractic comes in. Many people find that they actually save money on their health care expenses by seeing a chiropractor. Another way to save…published, peer-reviewed research indicates that the immune system may be enhanced by chiropractic adjustments. The immune system is the system that helps the body fight colds, the flu, and many other sicknesses. Although all people respond differently to care, maybe you won’t be running off to the doctor as much once you start chiropractic.
This is especially important if you are self-employed. And an entire week of care in my office may cost what you could pay for one visit elsewhere.
You Benefit from an Amazing Offer- Look: it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to correct your health. You are going to write a check to someone for your health care expenses, you may as well write one for a lesser amount for chiropractic. When you bring in this article, you will receive my entire new patient exam for NO Charge! That’s Orthopedic Neurological and Chiropractic Exams plus a full report of findings ….the whole ball of wax. This exam could cost you $300.00 elsewhere. Chiropractic treatment is not included in this initial visit price. But, please call right away because this offer expires on Jan 31st,2012 and I don’t want you to miss out.
By the way, further care is very affordable and you’ll be happy to know that I have affordable family plans and all further care will be agreed upon in writing. You see I’m not trying to seduce you to come see me with this low start up fee, then to only make it up with high fees after that. Further care is very import-ant to consider when making your choice of doctor. High costs can add up very quickly
Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Palmer College I have been invited too and attended many international chiropractic conferences. I have even traveled to India to do volunteer work because the people of India need know about chiropractic too. After practicing in Aiken SC for ten years, I married a local man and I moved my practice to Mount Airy
I just have that low exam fee to help more people who need care.
