What our clients are saying about us...
My husband actually looked at me and said,
"It's so nice to see you being who I always knew you were inside."
I honestly cannot say enough good things about Dr. Steve Hyjek. I came to Dr. Steve about two months ago with a new diagnosis of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome that I'd had for years. I was experiencing numbness and tingling in my face and hands. I was putting on extra weight although I hadn't changed my lifestyle. My energy was so low that I constantly needed a nap--and a lot of caffeine. I constantly felt like my brain was foggy and it was hard to concentrate. I had chronic neck pain that three other chiropractors and regularly massage therapy had done nothing to alleviate. I had bloating and digestive issues. And I was experiencing high levels of anxiety even though my life was relatively calm. Frankly put, I was a mess.
Dr. Steve was very thorough in the tests he conducted before treating me--and I really appreciated that. Because of his thoroughness he discovered I had a parasite (yikes!) and a condition known as Adrenal Fatigue in addition to my Hashimoto's and PCOS. He also noticed my head was positioned an inch and a half forward of where it should be causing it to put 30 pounds of pressure on my neck (no wonder I had chronic pain!) Within 30 days of beginning treatment with Dr. Steve, my head was successfully moved back half an inch, reducing the pressure on my neck noticeably. My brain fog was completely gone, my anxiety greatly reduced, my numbness and tingling almost non-existent, and my energy levels so improved that my husband actually looked at me and said, "It's so nice to see you being who I always knew you were inside." I'd lost some weight too--and felt like an entirely new person in many ways.
Because of the extent of my ailments, I will still be seeing Dr. Steve for a long time to come. But I couldn't go another day without singing his praises because after such a short amount of time I'm already beginning to feel better than I ever thought I could. If you're thinking of giving him a call, don't hesitate. Do it right now.
Try him out, you won't be disappointed!!
Dr. Steve is amazing!!! I was recently referred to him from a friend from home in MN where he had a very well established practice. I have had several adjustments from him now and feel very confident in his abilities. I even have him adjust my little 1 year old girl. I normally go to a chiropractor that does the same adjustments to me every time I see him....Not the case with Dr. Steve! He adjusts me differently every time based on my chief complaint. He also has a large bag of tools to assist him....like a low level tissue laser. so cool! That has worked wonders on my husbands sprained ankle!
He is a wealth of knowledge as well! He is always telling me about new research that is out. And on top of all that, he is working with my on my weight loss goals....and not just with another silly diet. He is looking at my HORMONE levels! He treats the cause, not the symptoms. He treats everything from cholesterol to depression. Try him out, you won't be disappointed!!
He looks at the big picture and all the causes
Dr. Steve is a wonderful Chiropractor and so different than others that I've met and experienced. He looks at the big picture and all the causes, and he's not just there to relieve the pain. I would recommend Dr. Steve if you have any issues that are pain related, weight related or you just want overall wellness. Fabulous bedside manner and good human being, too!
Dr Steve stands out from other Chiropractors that I have been to because of his knowledge, honest approach and results.
Since my childhood I have struggled with lower back pain, something I have just gotten accustomed too. Recently though, I also was experiencing problems in my upper back. I walked in to Dr. Steve's office with pain throughout my entire back. From the very beginning he was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Dr Steve has the commanding demeanor that gives a quiet confidence but also a welcoming presence that makes you feel safe.
He started by walking me through what was wrong and not only fixing my current pain but starting the road to long term recovery as well. The first month seeing Doctor Steve was amazing, I was experiencing less pain in not only my upper back but also in my lower back for the first time in 15 years!
Dr Steve stands out from other Chiropractors that I have been to because of his knowledge, honest approach and results. I am going to continue to work with Dr Steve and work towards a healthier, happier, pain free life.
I feel better than I have in 20 years and have more energy than I have ever had, all thanks to Dr. Steve.
Dr. Steve has been my Functional Medicine doctor since April of this year. I came to him because I was a diabetic suffering from peripheral neuropathy. I had also suffered for years with acid reflux, bloating and stomach cramps and a poorly functioning thyroid. Through supplements and dietary counseling I have reversed my diabetes, lost 50 lbs. and am off all medications for diabetes, neuropathy and acid reflux. I feel better than I have in 20 years and have more energy than I have ever had, all thanks to Dr. Steve. I highly recommend this caring, knowledgeable doctor.
I couldn't recommend him more
I am relatively new to the area and found Dr. Steve during a search for a Functional Medicine practitioner in Orange County. I worked for more than a year with endocrinologists, my GP and endured lots of tests. I was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto's and honestly these traditional practitioners were unable to help alleviate any of my symptoms.
As a 53 year old woman, I came to Dr. Steve with chronic joint pain, low back pain, general edema, fatigue and insomnia. Within a couple of months I was close to symptom free for the first time in over 2 years! His approach to diagnosis and treatment was clear and easy to follow. I've always been skeptical about using supplements, but I can actually feel the benefits of the treatment program I've been on. I also appreciate how open to feedback Dr. Steve is - he doesn't force a particular approach if it isn't working for me. He is very well read and always seems headed to the latest training or is talking about some recent research that could have bearing on my treatment.
Finally, I'd just like to say that Dr. Steve is one of the nicest people I've worked with in any capacity. I couldn't recommend him more, whether it's for a routine adjustment or a full workup.
"After 7 years of feeling like crap I feel like I have my life back."
What can I say. Dr Steve is an amazing doctor who knows his stuff. He goes out of his way to help make you feel better and get on track. He doesn't try to push meds on you but makes recommendations so you can decide unlike other doctors. He listens and truly cares. I have a ton of autoimmune issues. He helped discover my root cause. Because of him; after 7 years of feeling like crap I feel like I have my life back. I have only been seeing him for 2 years and you know what? I feel fortunate to have found him. His products are good, his advice is sound. If you want to feel better please go see him. He really is fantastic. I wish more doctors would do what he does.
"My symptoms either vanished or reduced to a random barely noticeable annoyance."
I found Dr Steve after I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, and all I got from conventional medicine was a daily pill (that I refused to take) based on a standard blood test that didn't even show whether I had Hashimotos or not. Nobody was interested in figuring out what caused my symptoms and treat the root cause, which to me should be the purpose of medicine, right? Thankfully, the internet introduced me to the notion of functional medicine. Dr Steve made me do a dozen tests that looked at what seemed every function of my body - an extremely important step because Hypothyroidism can be triggered by a huge number of issues. Medicine as it should be! And the results were astounding, which again proved the necessity to find the cause of the problem and not rush and mask the problem with a pill. I had problems with no direct symptoms pointing to them, so there was no way for me to ever know I had them unless I found a doctor who knew how complicated Hashimotos triggers could be. I keep going back to this point. He actually took the time to test all the possibilities!
It has been a little more than 3 months now, and my symptoms have either vanished or been reduced to a random barely noticeable annoyance. My main symptom was fatigue to the extent that I couldn't get up in the morning. This was the first symptom to go away. I sleep the same number of hours, but now it is enough, the need to constantly nap is completely gone. I couldn't be happier with my progress. And while I still visit Dr Steve on a regular basis to take care of the few remaining symptoms, there is no doubt in my mind that my choice was the right one and I found a great doctor!
"I am so grateful that I found Dr. Steve"
I am so grateful that I found Dr. Steve. I've been having autoimmune issues since college and have gone to a few holistic doctors that have helped me in some ways, but in some ways I was left dumbfounded. About 2 or 3 months ago after a really stressful couple of years, I walked into his office the sickest I'd ever been without really knowing what was going on in my body. He conducted a really thorough battery of tests and carefully went over my results, symptoms, and history. He listens more than any other doctor, isn't pushy, takes time to work with me on choosing supplements that don't include animal products, and goes out of his way to meet the needs of all his patients. His front desk staff member, Jen is so sweet, which is so refreshing. Her and Dr. Steve are extremely thorough in communicating when needed. This is an all around great office. I have already cleared my brain fog, gotten so much of my energy back, lost about 10 pounds of water weight, and am on the road back to myself again. Most of all, I was able to do it all plant based. I really appreciate his understanding of my conviction to not eat animals or animal by products. He is worth every penny!
