Dr. Angelo Charonis, D.C. 


"When I first encountered issues with my back and shoulders,  the suggested treatment was back surgery. I was 30 years old at the time.  In search of alternative, less invasive treatments, I decided to try chiropractic. Looking back, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Premier Chiropractic has been part of my "wellness regime" ever since.  Dr. Charonis and his extraordinary staff have been been instrumental in helping me  manage chronic back pain and minimize the affects of carpal tunnel syndrome.  

Premier Chiropractic has allowed me to manage my various ailments without the need for surgery or medication. For that, I am extremely grateful." F.V. - Half Moon Bay

"I have been going to Premier Chiropractic Clinic to treat chronic neck/back pain for years, and I just felt I needed to share my experiences with the Yelp community.

Dr Charonis and his staff have done an amazing job of getting my health back to a point where I feel like I am myself again. The chronic neck/back pain is gone thanks to the wonderful treatment that I have been receiving from all the providers.

In fact, unless my back starts acting up because of a long car trip or airplane ride or I do something dumb like trying to catch 50lb sacks of clothes dropped from a second floor of an apartment building helping a friend move, my visits to Premier have been less frequent over the past few months.  I guess that's the interesting part of their business, they get you well, and then you don't see them anymore, which is kind of sad because I really like seeing them all.

Part of the reason I feel my treatments were even more effective was when I started to see Dr Cathy for acupuncture treatment. At first, I wasn't too sure how I felt about getting little needles stuck into me, but Dr Cathy did a great job of easing my nerves about the whole process, and I am so thankful I started to get treatment from her.  She is a great practitioner of healing and I don't know the exact processes involved physiologically that takes place using acupuncture but I do know she is amazing and she knows what she is doing as I heal quicker and have more immediate pain relief when I use acupuncture along with traditional healing methods through the chiropractic care I receive.  

Premier Chiropractic Clinic is located in a great part of Redwood Shores, with easy access from the freeway (although at rush hour 101 can be a bear).   The office itself is spectacular, it is clean and spacious and just all around professional in every way.

When my back does hurt, I can usually get an appointment on short notice and I trust ALL the Dr's and caregivers at Premier Chiropractic.  I know some of the ones mentioned in the earlier reviews have come and gone over the years but the level of professionalism and quality of care remains extremely HIGH no matter who I see.

I highly recommend Premier Chiropractic!!!" -N.F. - San Ramon

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Dr. Charonis is extremely competent and visiting him is always a pleasure.  I have some neck issues due to a car accident some years ago.  In the past my neck problem has made sitting in one place for extended a"mounts of time difficult.  Chiropractic care isn't for everyone, but if you go that route Dr. Charonis is knows what he is doing.

Dr. Charonis and the staff at Premier Chiropractic Clinic greet you warmly.  I always feel welcome at the office.  They talked to the insurance agency and got me the care I needed.  I have been visiting Premier for close to a year and always had good care.  I can't begin to describe the relief I feel after seeing him.

Highly recommended." -A.E. - San Francisco

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I moved to Austin a few years ago, but before I went, I was a regular patient here.    There's been so many positive reviews about this place, so I don't really need to say much. 

Staff is great, techniques are great, I just can't say enough good things.  So good, I stopped in here this week while out in Redwood Shores for work.  I am really picky about my Chiros, and I appreciate the no nonsense, professional methods employed here." -J.B. - Frederick, Maryland

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have been a patient here for years and love this clinic. I currently see Dr. Powlowski for chiropractic work and am nothing but thrilled with his care. Not only is he is skilled and knowledgeable, but also incredibly kind and caring. I've been to other chiropractors where it's just a quick crack, crack, crack and you are done. With Dr. Dave you get much more time and attention, starting with some "warm up" work on the muscles (not a very technical description, but it feels great) and then the adjustment, and then some more muscle and stretching work. It feels very comprehensive for what my body needs.

When I first started going to Premier I was seeing Dr. Charonis, the owner, and give him a glowing review as well. Same approach, more than just crack, crack, crack treatment. He also does muscle work in addition to the actual adjustment. He's a nice, gentle man.

But, it gets better! After your adjustment you can opt to have a 20 to 25 minute massage after with one of their skilled and professional massage therapists. I currently see Melissa, Janet and Wendell and they are all amazing. And my insurance covers this...it's heaven!

The front desk women are very nice, warm and welcoming, too. It's just an overall nice place to go that feels friendly and nurturing.

They offer other services, too, like acupuncture, but I haven't done that. Premier can be great "one stop shopping" for healing services." -E.C. - Redwood Shores

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"WOW!  I am a new patient here but I am sure I will only get happier the longer I am a patient here at Premier Chiropractic Clinic.

I went in last week for an initial visit.  I have Fibromylagia which is a very challenging chronic pain and chronic fatigue condition.  On top of bilateral knee arthritis and a number of sports injuries and knee surgeries.

I have seen probably 6 specialists since I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year ago.  The only "treatment" I was offered before was a prescription for narcotic pain killers.  Which is not a solution for this chronic condition.

What a change when I came into this office!  Dr. Charonis was very kind, caring and knows his stuff on pain management.  He did very gentle body work on me - more deep stretching than the usual quick crack your back and off you go.  

Then I went and had a 20 minute massage with Wendell - this man is a massage master.  He was very intuitive into how much pressure to use and I was a very relaxed pain free mama when I left his massage room.

Lastly Dr. Kass is an M.D. and board certified anesthesiologist who started me on a series of injections in my knees Thursday.  I've had many injections before but Dr. Kass uses ultrasound to be sure to put the medication just where it needs to go.

Bottom line - if you have any chronic pain or acute injuries - I give this clinic my highest rating and after a year of struggles and pain, feel I have hope again to regain much of my mobility." -K.S. - Redwood City

"I have been going to Premier Chiropractic Clinic for several years due to some chronic back/neck issues, and more recently for added support after a car accident. Premier is a beautiful, professional office space, and the staff here is incredible. Prior to moving to the Bay Area I had been to about five different Chiropractors over the years, and I can easily say that Dr. Angelo Charonis is BY FAR the best I have ever been to. 

For starters, Dr. Charonis is one of the most kind and compassionate people I have ever met. He truly cares about his patients, going WAY above and beyond to look out for their well-being. On top of the extraordinary chiropractic care, he has helped me with so many other things, like navigating complex insurance issues, and suggesting further testing and/or therapies that could help me out with other wellness issues that have arisen.  He is always supportive and ready to help, no matter what comes up. Honestly, I have never had any medical practitioner take as much interest, care, and commitment to my overall wellness as he has. 

Over the past few years, I have watched Dr. Charonis evolve his business into a full-service wellness center with top-notch practitioners. They offer many options for diagnostics, treatments and therapies in many healthcare areas. The staff here is made up of a diverse range of medical, health, and wellness providers, including chiropractors, an M.D., an acupuncturist, and massage therapists. All of them are exceptional! This is a collection of the most gifted, caring and compassionate healers. 

I recently went to Dr. Kass for cortisone injections in my feet for plantar fasciitis. I put it off for years because I always heard it was so painful just to get the injections.  The fact that he is also an anesthesiologist allows him to do these injections quickly, and with very little discomfort. I was so impressed with his skilled approach and was grateful for the instant relief.

For massage, I usually see Wendell, who is truly the most gifted massage therapist I have ever been to. This wonderful man is pure healing energy. He clearly is very passionate about his work, and you can tell that healing others is a calling for him. When he is working on you he is completely present and very intentional about doing his part to help you on your wellness path. 

The professionals at Premier Chiropractic are truly the nicest group of people who bend over backward to make sure you are happy, comfortable, and well taken care of. They really go above and beyond. I can't even fully express how wonderful they have all been to me, and how much I appreciate all of them. They are not just my healthcare providers, they have become my friends, and I feel blessed to have them." -L.S. - Redwood Shores

"Dr. Martin Kass, M.D.
Thank you very much for the attention you and your staff gave me during treatment of my peripheral neuropathy condition.  I am amazed about the response to this new treatment.  I was afflicted by this condition for several years and with few treatments I observed some improvements and it seems with eight treatments I have gained full nerve response on my right foot.  I highly recommend this treatment to those who are afflicted by this condition and hopefully they will get the same result. Thank you sincerely." -H.E. -San Mateo

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you Dr. Martin Kass and Angelo Charonis for the treatment and for giving me a better quality of life these past few weeks.  I already feel 50% change and I can walk and sleep much better." -G.M. -Redwood City

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"From the beginning Dr. Kass' treatment helped a lot.  It lessened the pain a lot.  Also during the treatment I was able to walk better because it lessened the numbness and tingling. - P.S. -Daly City

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I would like to recommend Premier Chiropractic Clinic.  Located in our neighborhood in Redwood Shores just 2 minutes from the Oracle HQ campus.

It is a wonderful service with health benefits many in our fast paced life don't even realize we need!  It has done wonders for me and I thought it would be worth sharing."  -C.B. - Redwood Shores

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A few years ago I experienced a bad wipe out wakeboarding on lake Berryessa (in Napa). I compressed a couple of disks and cracked a vertebrae. My 1st stop was a back specialist in Stanford who, after seeing me for 1 hour and without any MRI or x-ray declared that surgery and fusion would be necessary. I went to seek the opinions of other specialist and ended up trying the office of Dr. Charonis as I live not far from his practice. At that time, i could not sleep more than 2 hours a night and was in constant pain. Dr. Charonis was able to get me back in shape in about 1 month of intensive therapy. Each session includes manipulation than deep tissue massage by a professional massage therapist. Although the 1st few session were painful, the pain decreased by 90%+ over teh period. I now see Dr. Charonis every other month for a quick maintenance. I highly recommend him."  -O.G. - Redwood City 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I've been a patient of Dr. Charonis now for 10+ years - I think he's arguably the best chiropractor in the Bay.  Through several different injuries, his techniques and therapy have enabled me to have an excellent recovery from weightlifting injuries.  His therapists have also been key in augmenting his treatment.  His facility is always clean, his staff is very kind and professional.  I give this place my highest recommendations!'' -R.N. - San Carlos

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I began seeing Dr. Charonis about 7 years ago and continue to see him now even though I have moved to San Francisco.  And for those of you who live in the Bay Area you know the care must be amazing if I am willing to put up with traffic on 101.

I have been seen for problems with my back, neck, knee and shoulder.  I have found Dr. Charonis the best practitioner to care for me even through my 20 years of receiving chiropractic care as an basketball player.

I appreciate his approach which doesn't only involve the adjustment, but stretching before, and massage therapy after to allow the adjustment to have a more lasting affect.  He has seen me through a rotator cuff repair, ACL repair and most recently issues after a car accident.

I am a physician myself and recognize that I am receiving extraordinary care and have since even referred my mom for her neck issues.

If you are looking for Chiropractic care that definitely looks at the whole picture of what might be contributing to your injury here you will receive great chiropractic care followed by great massage therapy.

If I worked closer, I would refer all my patients with chronic pain issues to Dr. Charonis." -N.T  - San Francisco

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Charonis is extremely competent and visiting him is always a pleasure.  I have some neck issues due to a car accident some years ago.  In the past my neck problem has made sitting in one place for extended amounts of time difficult.  Dr. Charonis gives me exactly the care I need.

Dr. Charonis and the staff at Premier Chiropractic Clinic treat you as an individual, greet you warmly, and never make you feel like just another file.  I have been visiting Premier for close to a year and always had good care.  I can't begin to describe the relief I feel after seeing him.

Highly recommended. -A.E. -San Carlos

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I've got two hurniated discs and my T7 is ruptured... When I first started going to see Dr. Charonis I was struggling to get out of bed and function on a normal daily basis. My first visits started several years ago, adjustments along with the massage therapy started doing wonders. I was a skeptic of the whole chiropractor thing at first, but Dr. Charonis' patience, ability to explain why and what he was doing made me feel at ease.

Now, I see him for occasional check ups... But am proud to say I feel great! I run ~15 miles per week, work out, and lead a normal healthy life style that I thought I wouldn't be able to attain!" -K.S. - Burlingame

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have been going here for years. Whenever my neck or hips act up Dr Charonis gets me back in shape. He has a lot of experience and knows what to do and explains it really well also. Love the comprehensive approach with the massage therapists that work on u as well with a focus on your problem areas. The office is big, clean and very professional and he is very genuine in his care for his patients. He has some very interesting machines that help facilitate healing as well as other staff (acupuncturist, etc). Highly recommend!" - T.M. -Redwood City

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The staff is friendly and always attentive to my needs and comfort.

"...a deliberate but gentle treatment plan allowed me to put my confidence in Premier Chiropractic to help me in correcting my posture and getting me closer to restoring my health.  After my first visit, I knew that I will put my trust in Premier Chiropractic.  A friendly welcoming atmosphere put me at ease and allowed me to be receptive to the treatment plan."  -B.

"Premiere Chiropractic

Angelo Charonis,

I had back surgery approximately 18 months ago for pain in the L-5 region. The pain subsided for about a year and returned worse than before and at the suggestion of a colleague I decided to give your office a try. Keep in mind that I was not a believer in chiropractic medicine. On my first visit I told you my history and gave you my MRI report for your review. After reviewing you were confident that you could better my condition without resulting to surgery. Jokingly I told you that three months from our first visit I had to play in a golf tournament that I have participated in for over fifteen years and expected you to get me through it as painless as possible. Previous years required me to see my personal physician and get a series of steroidal type injections that were necessary to get me through the weekend tournament. Not only did I not need the injections, I was pain free the entire final month of our visits and through the entire tournament weekend. Your methods and support staff of therapists gave me back relief I haven't experienced in many years. I am truly a believer now in what chiropractic medicine can do for people.

Oh, and by the way, I won the tournament for the first time.

Thank you and your staff'' - R.C. - Walnut Creeek

"I need to tell you how awesome Lisa is.  The work she does on my back as a follow up to Your Magic is a wonderful compliment to your overall care service.  I'm sure I'm echoing the thoughts from many of your clients when I say Thanks for employing people like Lisa!!" -A. R. - Los Altos

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"They were able to see me the same day I called. Dr. Angelo was very informative and put NO PRESSURE on me to start an on-going treatment plan. I saw the massage therapist afterward and SHE WAS AMAZING. I am much better and will go back and see very soon!

The prices are reasonable and the staff is extremely friendly.'' -S.B. -Belmont

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dr. Charonis was very informative when going over the issues I am having with my back and neck. I have been twice and both times I feel like a new man walking out.  Kimberly, the new massage therapist is awesome and really gets the kinks out.  I would recommend this place to anyone.'' -K.S. -San Mateo

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A clean, professional environment with a dedicated and highly-skilled staff -- that's Premier Chiropractic Clinic. I've had experience with Dave Pawlowski and Steve Sprague, and they're both awesome. The staff here gives you psychological counsel and support on top of the physical adjustments, and will refer you to other specialists if need be. This is really a place where you become a lifetime customer, or rather, more like a member of the family. They remember everything about you even if you hadn't gone in a while, so you can be sure you'll be getting a thorough and completely customized treatment. The setting is fabulous too.'' -A.S. -Redwood City

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have been going to Premier for nearly a decade now and have watched it grow from a small office to a complete and thriving wellness center. You will not find a better set of professionals who genuinely want to help you and make you feel better through whatever method works the best for your body. I have been recommending them to everyone I know and will continue to do so! I have worked with nearly every Doctor and Therapist in the office and each brings their own knowledge and understanding of the human body that works perfectly for whatever level of pain that I am feeling. You should not go anywhere else, Premier is great for everyone.'' -M.P. -Belmont
