Dr Van Tassel and his staff are very friendly
No wait. Friendly staff. Always immediate results.
Dr Van Tassel is great. Always feel a lot better after a visit. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can't find a better place. If you need an adjustment, you can't beat Athletic & Family Chiropractic.
Amazing staff and Dr.
Dr. Van Tassel always makes me feel better.
My experience with Dr. Van Tassel and all of his staff has been excellent. From the professionalism and kindness I have received from the receptionist, to the patience and expertise of the massage therapist, to the experience and competence of Dr. John himself. I have been very pleased with the relief to my lower back and leg pain. Dr. Van Tassel and his staff come highly recommended by me. Thank you for your wonderful, professional and capable service.
After just a few visits I am back to normal Every one there are very nice and friendly I highly recommend this place to every one
I can not speak highly enough of this place. One of my co workers recommended Dr. Van Tassel. Before seeing him I was barely able to move my neck. Within a few visits I had complete mobility again. Any time I am injured at all, this is my first call! Yes, before going for the first time I thought Chiropractors were a gimmick and boarder line 'fake medicine.' I was WRONG! This is not the case at all. Additionally, my visits have never taken more than 5 minutes to see the doctor after walking in, and it rarely takes more than 30 minutes from the time I walk in until he is finished!
Comfortable setting. Staff is pleasant. Treatment is a hands on approach (no trigger thingy). Very detailed record recording. My treatment plan consists of 6 visits but my severe debilitating shooting pain down my arm was gone by visit #2.
Prompt, Courteous and Effective! I have 2 separate issues with inflammation in upper rib/neck pain as well as frozen right shoulder. Dr. Van Tassell listened to my problems, suggested plan of treatments and helped alleviate some pain this first visit. In the past w/other issues he has always been available when I was in serious pain with Sciatica having to travel to take care of my mother's affairs. The wait is never long which is a huge plus.
I've been a patient of Dr. VanTassle's for more than 8 years, I've always been treated professionally and effectively. I enjoy the office staff and have always had a good experience.
I started seeing Dr. Van Tassel after an injury to my leg. This was a soft tissue injury and was completely resolved with in 5 visits with immediate improvement after the first visit with "Graston". I've had back related problems and he fixes it within minutes. A real magician. I think that if you are an athlete, he is the ONLY choice. He gets you back into play. I recommend him to all athletes.
Dr. Van Tassel was very helpful and lent an open ear to hear what the problems were. He was able to go directly to the problem spot and gave me a treatment plan that has improved my condition dramatically.
Quality Service & Welcoming Atmosphere
Check in was friendly and I liked the device for checking in. The wait time was a little more than I expected but much shorter than most medical appointments. The consultation and service provided was very good. I will be returning for further treatments.
Friendly staff and high quality service
When my back is out of whack ... this is my place to go. The staff is professional and friendly. Dr. Van Tassell is perfect. He listens to your complaints, asks a few questions, and then does his magic. He has given me stretch instructions that have helped me get through this. I had been away from his office for two years since retiring but when I was having problems again; I did not hesitate to call Dr. Van Tassell to get myself back into alignment. I am already on the road to feeling better. Life is good.
They took the time
Dr. Van Tassel and his Team were great. They really took the time to to get to know me, and my issues, performing a full and thorough evaluation. He not only provided a thorough adjustment after treating with heat, he also spent time with me showing me what muscles need to be str, and the exercises I need to do to help me.
Let Doc know about things going on in my life (carrying heavy flooring boards for remodeling, but mostly symptoms while swimming), the aches while swimming, getting out of bed and making a meal on tile flooring. I stressed my shoulder area and back to my waste. He placed moist heat on my neck and back to lighten up the stiffness. I almost fell asleep! When he came back he did many adjustments that he could feel before the heat therapy. Didn't know I had so much tension in my neck until he cracked it four times! He also adjusted the lower back... it felt so good that I was walking a little wobbly line to check out with Nicole. He, also, gave instructions on loosening up the entire back for maintenance and as a warm-up before exercising. You can, also get a great massage there. Doc is very particular about who he hires, and they are ALL great in their specialties. I HIGHLY recommend Doc... also, he does not berate you when you, stupidly, did not make a previous appointment!
Professional and comfortable
Had never been to a chiropractor before. My primary gave me several names and a friend recommended Dr. Van Tassel. So far, the best choice I could have made. My lower back has been bothering me for years, but after leaving the office on my second visit, my back felt better than it has in quite a while. I think with the Doc's care and following suggested stretching routine, I just might last a few more years.
I’ve been going to Dr. Van Tassel for 20+ years and he consistently provides fantastic, professional service. If you want an honest, ethical and quality chiropractor, look no further.
Great doc, great staff. Accurate diagnosis, effective treatment = pain relief!
Professional and personable
Dr. Van Tassel was wonderful. He understood my medical problem and rendered the appropriate treatment. I’m glad to be his patient.
Made my back and neck stop hurting.
Friendly - staff and doctor. Clean basket used for glasses in room 1.
Very efficiently run office - very friendly! Dr . Van Tassel very knowledgeable, helpful and thorough !
Dr. & staff are always respectful of my time (usually getting me in early if I arrive ahead of time). Very friendly and helpful. Dr. VanTassel always does the right things to take care of this issue I am dealing with. I have and will continue to recommend him to others.
Professional and Kind
Very prompt with appointment times and very Attentive to needs!
Great doctor, great staff
Great experience. Already feel better. Very nice office staff.
The office staff was very kind and I was able to get in the same day. I hardly sat down in the waiting room. As soon as I checked in I was put in a room. Dr. Van Tassel was very thorough and gave me complete relief on my very first visit. I also found out that he is the Chiropractor for the Florida State Football team! Which was very exciting. His office has so many pictures of his patients pictures and signed by athletes he has helped through the years. I am very excited to continue to see Dr. Van Tassel and will be telling all my friends and co-workers about him as well. Thank you Dr. Van Tassel!
Satisfactory first visit
The front desk staff were very friendly and I was seen very quick! I received an appointment the same day as well. Dr. Van Tassel was brief and to the point. I would have like a little more conversation and suggestions on what I can do from home to improve my back. But, overall his technique and knowledge was great. I'll keep coming.
No wait. Friendly staff. Always immediate results.
Relief provided quickly, efficiently, professionally, Many thanks!
I had no wait time and excellent results from my adjustment.
I really think highly of Dr Van Tassel from my first visit. With a possible neck issue, he was careful not to make things worse until I can get CHP to authorize an MRI to know what we are dealing with. Unfortunately, CHP will allow my pain to continue with 6 weeks of required physical therapy before they authorize one, even though the arm is becoming more of an issue since last weeks therapy seesion.
Immediate improvement in flexibility and movement.
First Visit- Great Experience
Dr. Van Tassel was very helpful and efficient. A few more adjustments to go but I can already tell an improvement.
I could repeat my visit everyday!
Fast and efficient service
I was able to get in quickly and get adjusted the time my appointment was scheduled.
I've had nothing but positive results during my visits. The pain relief has made a big difference in my daily life. The staff is always friendly and the wait is always very short which I appreciate. It can be very frustrating to waste time waiting in an over booked doctor's office.Thanks!
Professional and friend staff
I have been going to Dr. Van Tassel off and on for years. He never disappoints. When other things didn’t work, he managed to fix them. He is my hero.
I was pleasantly surprised to receive superior care and support. I felt soooooo very good after the manipulations on my body. I look forward to my continued sessions with Dr. Van Tassel and squeezing in a massage as often as possible. He is so professional, kind and compassionate in handling his patients. The secretary/receptionist was supportive and kind enough to give me a phone call reminder which I appreciated very much.
Only after 2 visits I have improved drastically. Very nice office and every one is friendly
Feeling great after my visit with Dr. V
My experience was great. The office personnel was very professional and helpful. Dr. Van Tassel was very helpful and explained the cause of my pain. All of the treatment was very satisfactory. I look forward to my follow-up appointment.
First visit ;-)
Waaa hoooo I loved everything about my visit. Feel better. Than I have felt for a month or more. Thank you thank you thankyou Lynn Monroe
Been coming to Van Tassel for a few years & he always does a great job. Helps relieve pain quickly! Staff up at front desk are always super friendly & helpful!
Excellent Professional Service
Great office staff and on time appointment. Although I was receiving treatment for hip and leg weakness, I asked Dr. Van Tassel to treat an old arm and shoulder pain from golfing. The shoulder and arm feel great after only one treatment. The hip and leg strength is coming back. Thank you Dr. Van Tassel
GREAT office to work with! Thanks for letting My Son call me for the Payment!!! It is very hard being 5 hours away! Thanks for all you do for College Students! Susan
Called last minute for adjustment due to lower back discomfort and was able to get same day apt..After just one visit I received instant relief and my back is feeling much better.
professional and friendly
early in treatment -- feel good about the treatment
Thank you, I was in some serious pain down my right leg. After my visit start to feel relief later that afternoon.
High Quality Service
Was treated for pain in lower back radiating down back of left leg. The doctor examined me thoroughly and placed hot packs on my lower back, put me on the massage machine and then adjusted me. It has been about 6 years since my last adjustment. I feel great
The receptionist is very friendly and personable! Dr. Van T. is very professional and friendly. Thanks!
I am consistently helped by their services. My back health has improved tremendously.
Very good service and care by staff and doctor. Dr. Van Tassell was thorough and answered all my questions patiently. This was my first experience with this office and i would return.
Very professional and very nice!
They are always on time with your appointment and very professional. Dr. Van Tassel has helped me with several issues over the years!
I always get great results. That's why I return monthly.
I have had excellent service from both the office personnel and Dr. Van Tassle - I would recommend him to others
I was able to schedule during my lunch break. staff is very helpful.
Always on time, friendly, and eager to help you. Been twice so far and can tell I feel a lot better and looking forward to continuing with getting my back on track!
Great service, friendly and professional.
Today was my first visit as a new patient. I appreciated Dr. Van Tassel talking to me, not at me. He was patient, listened to me and was not in a hurry to rush me out the door. After my much need adjustment I was immediately pain free! The office staff was friendly and helpful when I asked questions for clarification on a couple things. I am looking forward to returning to a follow-up appointment. I would recommend Dr. Van Tassel to family and friends.
From day one I have found Dr. Van Tassel and his staff to be very friendly, professional and more than accommodating when scheduling appointments. I will definitely recommend the office to everyone I know who is in need of a good chiropractor.
I want to thank Dr. Van Tassel for the quick response to schedule me for an evaluation. In addition, I want to thank him for reminding me of the great insurance I have through CHP and no need to spend money outside of my coverage. I look forward to our upcoming visits and after my first appointment of evaluation and adjustment, I am already feeling relief. Thank you again, Tammy Jimenez
Courteous service; listened to my issues and knew exactly how to treat
I have 2 separate issues with inflammation in upper rib/neck pain as well as frozen right shoulder. Dr. Van Tassell listened to my problems, suggested plan of treatments and helped alleviate some pain this first visit. In the past w/other issues he has always been available when I was in serious pain with Sciatica having to travel to take care of my mother's affairs. The wait is never long which is a huge plus.
I arrived a few minutes late due to a prior appointment and I was taken into a room promptly. Dr. Van Tassel did a much needed adjustment. I have vertebrae issues...particularly in my neck. He recommended I come once a month for my problem. Felt great after leaving the office! I always receive excellent care!
The neck adjustment was nice, but my upper back is difficult to adjust, just waiting for relief in that area! THANKS!
I had my first appointment today. I was in a car accident and had never been to a chiropractor before. I was a little hesitant. Dr. Van Tassel is awesome. He explained things so I could understand and really took the time to go over everything with me. I highly recommend him!!!
Dr . VanTassel diagnosed and resolved the problem that a neurologist and my pcp couldn't.
Customized service and friendly staff
The doctor listens to your feedback and concerns and creates a custom treatment plan that works for you. I am starting to feel relief with a chronic condition, so I am very appreciative for the positive experience here. Checking in and out is quick, and scheduling appointments is made easy by the friendly staff.
Have been a client of Dr. Van Tassel for probably 15 or so years and have always received excellent physical treatment, but more than that as his practice provides caring personal service. John is simply a great guy interested in help you feel better, and his staff reflects his personal touch.
I've been very happy with Athletic & Family Chiropractic. Dr. Van Tassel is so nice, and caring. Great office. :)
I was impressed - did not know what to expect!
My first ever appointment with a chiropractor, so I did not know what to expect. I found Dr. VanTassel to be very kind and very thorough. He "got it" when I described what has been going on. The front desk staff - she was the best. Very professional experience, and very caring over all. Thankful I found you. Looking forward to healing!
Switching from a spine manipulation doctor to a bend and crack your back doctor I must say; when I felt my spine pop back into it's proper place the feeling was great; I'm onboard with this type of chiropractic style!
Made an immediate difference
I was apprehensive about my first Chiropractic visit. I shouldn't have been. I felt immediate relief, and even got work done on my shoulder which I didn't originally go in for. Both the shoulder and hip felt better as I walked out the door. I wish I had done this years ago.
Always enjoy inning in. Thanks for making me feel better
Aweomse to be back!
I miss Dr. VanTassel and he got my back feeling so much better.
Excellent service. Friendly. Professional. Beneficial results.
On time. Efficient. Would recommend.
I just got my neck fixed, good service, was in and out quick.
The wait time is short. The office staff is friendly. Provides quality service.
I love the staff and the doctor is awesome. he really helped my neck pain.
Best massage ever!
Always a great experience with Doc.....had a fabulous massage with Kieren today- honestly the best hour massage I've ever had!!
Athletic & Family Chiropractic
I've been coming here for about three months with a pinched nerve in my neck and shoulder region, I never thought I would be back to this point, but I can Say it's the best thing I could have done. All most back to 100 percent. I would recommend 100 percent.
Quick and professional
I was seen by Dr. Van Tassell shortly after signing in. He was polite and professional. The treatment he provided relieved my acute pain and tightness. Thank you!
I was able to get a same day appointment and very pleased with the service.
I was satisfied with care I received at your facility but my medical problems are probably much more severe than the type of treatment I can expect to receive there.
Massage Therapy with Kiran and Adjustment with Dr. Van Tassel
I had hurt my shoulder, but Kiran and Dr. Van Tassel were able to work the soreness out of it.
Very professional care with personal care and attention.
The care I have received has been excellent. After the treatment I received I now feel so much better. Thank you for the professional care that was given from this office.
High quality service, delightful staff.
Recommend Dr. John VanTassel for your chiropractic needs. Soft spoken and very knowledgeable.
Highly professional, friendly, caring, and helpful
I started treatment at Dr. Van Tassel's office in Sept/Oct of 2015. Previously, I had seen 2 other chiropractors in Tallahassee and thought that the discomfort I was living with for about 6 years was just a fact of aging life. My primary physician recommended Dr. Van Tassel; and, I am so glad I gave him a try. I had not been able to sleep on my back for years. I would shift onto it in my sleep; but, the pain would wake me up. Getting an uninterrupted nights sleep had been an impossibility for me because of my back pain. I have disk herniations; that's my reality. However, after about a month of of 2 visits per week, Dr. Van Tassel had me sleeping on my back again! Now I go in for maintenance when I need it. I have my life back AND my ability to enjoy a sound sleep. THANK YOU, DR. VAN TASSEL!
Professional and Friendly
Dr. Van Tassel does great work and got me back to enjoying the active lifestyle I lead. He and his staff are accommodating and work with my schedule to get me in even the same day. Dr. Van Tassel doesn't push you to return anymore than necessary and let's you decide how often you want an appointment based on your needs. Thank you all very much. KJS
I'm always in and out in less than 30 minutes. Very little wait time.
I was greeted upon arrival in the office. My paperwork that I had completed via the internet had been formatted so I could describe my physical areas of concern and describe the specific service I desired. The doctor promptly met with me to discuss the specifics of my discomfort areas and begin treatment. We discussed my prior history and current items for this appointment. Since I had previously seen the doctor over a year before, we reviewed any current changes and set out a home exercise routine for me for the next few weeks. Then we set a time for a return visit. The doctor was very attentive and provided some previous treatment adjustments, plus added some new treatment adjustments. My appointment was prompt, active with treatments, and reasonably priced.
