Dr. Van Moorsel is caring and you're in good hands there. Overall they have helped me and I'm content with the staff and services. One suggestion maybe would be to stop rotating exclusively chiropractic infomercials on the screens. 🙂

I've been going here for years for ongoing care. And I've recently been in a collision so of course I came here for my treatment. The team walks me through each step of the way, always explaining to me the impact of each piece and how it affects my... body. Super excited to get back to 100%.read more

I had very bad situation with my back. Had been in pain for a continuous over a year. The 2 months of chiropractic fixes helped get rid of the back pain completely and corrected my posture! Must go for anyone with back problems. I liked the fact... that the doctors there were well educated and patiently explained things and answered every question in great detail. That helped building my confidence and trust in them.read more

This business is great! Everyone is friendly, and knowledgeable! I had an emergency need with a neck/back issue (pinched nerve/ ribs out of place and more) . Cody Sandsimeier saw me, same day, after x-rays, and I got an adjustment. I was then on... road to less pain. I have been attending appointments regularly to work on ongoing issues with neck and back. Both Doc Cody's (there are 2) are amazing! The gals at the front reception are also friendly and helpful! My regular chiropractor was out sick at my usual place, and a friend recommended I try out Lake Union Wellness. I have not been disappointed! It is also conveniently located in SLU along a couple bus routes (40, Rapid Line).read more

I have been a patient of Dr Cody Drake and Lake Union Wellness for two years. About a year previous I had thrown my back out and seen another chiropractor who didn't offer X-rays, home exercises or any kind of long term plan. My recovery took weeks.... I flared the same injury in August 2015 and in one visit with Dr Drake I was keenly impressed. Dr Drake made it very clear his goals were two-fold: short term improvement in my excruciating pain and limited mobility, and long term, lifetime spinal health. He clearly explained both verbally and visually with my X-rays and color printed diagrams, exactly what was happening with my spine and creating the issue. He then walked me through how we (WE as in a team, and I had responsibilities in my care and outcomes) were going to use different modalities to correct the underlying issues that were causing me to throw out my back. This was night and day from my previous experience where I was simply adjusted a few times a week, still in agonizing pain, and never given a long term plan for prevention. I have also been adjusted by Dr Steffen and Dr K and I find them both equally capable and professional providers. The support staff at LUW is wonderful as well; they remember you by name, as others have mentioned, and are so easy to chat with. They are even dog friendly! Overall I can't recommend LUW enough. Professional, knowledgeable staff and a friendly atmosphere. (Their massage therapists are great too!)read more

I started seeing Dr. Drake because of a persistent pain in my upper back/neck. TL;DR: Dr. Drake knows his stuff and the staff is amazing!During my consultation, Dr. Drake conducted an exam and gave his hypothesis. After performing x-rays (at my... request) his diagnosis was confirmed. He developed a treatment plan, reviewed with with me and then presented me with a cost estimate and a break down of what my insurance would and would not cover. I started my treatments and have to say that the staff is absolutely awesome! They are always upbeat, extremely friendly, and know all the patients by name (they had my name down after just one visit).I'm about 3/4 of the way through my treatment plan and can say that I am leaps and bounds better. I have not had any pain since starting my treatment with Dr. Drake. I'd definitely recommend Dr. Drake and the staff at Lake Union Wellness!read more

The entire staff at Lake Union Wellness was very professional and knowledgable in what they were doing. From the moment that I stepped in for my initial consultation they were very helpful and thoroughly explained the procedures that I would be... going through. They are a great team and always so welcoming even if they only see you for a few minutes. I enjoy going in there for all of my appointments and recommend this to anyone looking to make themselves healthierread more

I absolutely love the team and the docs! The frequency of my neck pain has significantly decreased since starting their 38 wk plan. I had tried massage therapy & acupuncture for the entire year prior to going to Lake Union Wellness, and while... helpful, nothing compares to the relief I get from being adjusted. I usually see Dr. Mary Klimek, who is wonderful, but I have been adjusted by both Dr. Drake and Dr. Steffen, and they are awesome as well. I actually walked in a couple months ago with a persistent migraine that my Rx couldn't kick, and it dissipated immediately after being adjusted by Dr. Drake. Highly recommended, I'm certain you will benefit from their hands.read more

I have been coming back to Dr. Steffan for almost three years now, and I can't say enough about him and his team. From the massages to the physio to the chiropractic - his team is head and shoulders above the rest. I've been all over the US, and... I've used chiropractors since I was 14, but he blends it all together perfectly. I stopped in just today, and I'm already excited for how much better I feel having been adjusted by him. If you're looking for a great team to take care of you, and teach you about how to have a better and healthier life then Lake Union Wellness is the place to go. read more

I have been going to Lake Union Wellness for about 3 months now and I have had a great experience! I felt that my first "intro" meeting with Dr. Drake was extremely thorough and detailed, and I liked that I had a solid idea of the care they were... recommending, as well as the cost upfront. I also felt they were willing to work with me with my schedule and insurance/financial needs. I have a crazy schedule and the staff is very responsive and flexible when I call in to chance appointments. Everyone there is very welcoming and friendly - I felt at home as soon as I walked in the door! I highly recommend.read more

I have been working with Dr. Klimek for a few weeks and she has been amazing in both working with my body and explaining what she is doing and why. My mom is an acupuncturist and had told me that some places that require x-rays are not as good and... try to just keep you coming back without actually fixing anything. I have never felt this way about Lake Union Wellness. In fact the system they have in place makes it so I know their goal is the same as mine; getting me better! When they took the x-rays they used them to explain what is going on with my body and just to augment the info they had gotten from a physical exam. They have worked with me on my crazy scheduling and made finance problems as well. They are patient and kind and always willing to answer any and all question. Everyone here has made me feel like I am in good hands! I am extremely grateful that i found this place and would and have recommended it to others!read more

Great experience so far. I've only been to 1 other chiropractor and it felt like I was being spin sold to. Dr. Drake has been in tune with the reason 'why' and not only worked on my spine but my life habits. Midway through my treatment, sleeping is... not uncomfortable and exercising has been smooth again. Rest of the staff is fun and cheery, while staying efficient. Great ppl and an all around delight for healthcare. read more

I have had a great experience so far. Staff is friendly and quite helpful. Any questions I have, they have answered right away. When I have questions about my insurance they have already taken care of it, but they still let me know what is going... on. I would recommend anyone who needs chiropractic care to come here.read more

I'm an active older man and have been to a lot of chiropractors over the years, but I feel that LUW is one of the best groups I've experienced. Dr. Cody is my primary, but have been also treated by the other associates. All are first class and very... knowledgeable and friendly. Expect to remain with them for a long time for maintenance after my original condition is corrected. Desk staff is first rate too!read more

I have been a client at Lake Union Wellness for nearly two years. I have greatly benefitted from massage therapy for some chronic neck and back strain. I think both Toni Fusco and Rieko Nakano are fantastic massage therapists and they will do well... by anyone. Toni has strong hands and isn't afraid to work deep into the tissue. Rieko is very Zen and her strokes are nuanced. I get a massage every three to four weeks and that has kept my body balanced and my mind sane. Thank you!read more

Love these guys. I've had a great experience and being that it was my first experience with Chiropractic services, I was a little nervous. Dr. Steffan loves what he does and really enjoys educating his clients so they know what they're getting done... and why it's important. I go in 3x a week and have a massage every 1-2 weeks right now. The staff is very friendly, the facility is very convenient, and they are very flexible with times and appointments, i've never had trouble scheduling/rescheduling/postponing. I recommend them without hesitationread more

Dr. Klimek and Dr. Cody sure know what they're doing! These docs work together to make sure you are constantly improving yourself while in the office with very little, if any, wait time. While performing exercises, they will either give you advice... on your condition or there will be a TV with positive affirmations or facts about holistic healing. Stephanie is their friendly secretary who has a funky style and personality. All in all, a great place to increase health and wellness. read more

Despite the fact that I have only been going to LUW for a few visits, I would recommend LUW to anybody.The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. Also, I love that they don't just do the Chiropractic work, but that they also teach you about... exercises you can do at home, nutrition, wellness, anatomy, physiology, etc. LUW is much more than just a Chiropractor facility and definitely gives this industry a good name. My primary chiropractor is Dr. Mary Klimek and she is absolutely fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and does a great job. I would recommend her to anybody. Also, I went in for a massage at LUW and Gordon (the LMP) was absolutely fantastic. He did an amazing job, and is by far the best LMP I have every had.Stephanie at the front desk is also very friendly and gives a friendly and warm welcome when you come in the door.All in all, LUW is very recommendable and everybody that works there is fantastic. There is a reason I drive 40 min from the Eastside to Seattle twice a week to get my back adjusted at LUW instead of just finding somebody here.Thanks guys! read more

Lake Union Wellness has the best staff! Dr. Steffen was very understanding to my situation as an injured acrobat who needed to do a show in a week. He was able to fix my back and get me walking upright in a single session. He helped me schedule... follow up appointments and a few massages to target my problem areas and I've never felt better. I'm usually fairly skeptical of chiropractic work but now I swear by it.read more

Dr. Steffan is great! I appreciate that he talks you through the therapy you're receiving, especially in the beginning. I had been to other chiropractors before where it's more of a 2-min process and you wonder what you paid for. Following up the... adjustments at LUW, they have you do traction physical therapy, I always feel amazing afterwards! Also, Greg, one of the massage therapists at LUW is awesome!read more

LUW is saving my life! I have had neck pain -- sometimes very severe -- for almost 3 years, and thought it was something I just had to learn to live with. I went to a chiropractor in another state for several months, who was very helpful, but no... lasting impact was made. Then I found LUW. The combination of traction and adjustments is creating real and permanent change. I have had NO PAIN since I started my treatment in January and actually physically feel my body changing. It's crazy to forget I ever had pain! ALL of the doctors, masseuses, and administrative staff at LUW are phenomenal -- they are professional, attentive, careful and diligent with each of their patients. They use all modern equipment and methodology and I have learned a ton about the overall health impacts of having a healthy spine, even for those who may not feel they have immediate pain to address. They are true medical professionals I trust. Oh, and they are great people and fun to talk to, too! I can't recommend LUW more. Get your back over there!read more

I was extremely skeptical about pursuing Chiropractic; however, any doubts have been completely erased. Dr. Klimek is AMAZING! My experience has been educational, therapeutic and fun. Although Dr. Klimek is my primary doctor, there is a positive... team atmosphere that you feel as soon as you walk in and are greeted by Stephanie and Ashley. Dr. Steffen and Dr. Drake have taken the time to assist me as well and are friendly and knowledgeable. Between the release from being adjusted and feeling elongated and taller from the traction, I walk out of the clinic feeling rejuvenated. I look forward to my sessions at Lake Union Wellness. I highly recommend the massage therapists too! Greg has worked wonders on me and I've heard great things about the others. Thank you all! read more
