This review is long overdue. Dr. Furman is a miracle worker! As a 26-year-old working in an office, my back began to hurt more and more each day. Considering myself to be someone who is pretty active outside of the office, the pain became very aggravating. From the very 1st visit with Dr. Furman, my life has changed for the better. He not only helped relieve the pain almost immediately but also began working with me on exercises/stretches I could do on my own to keep the issues from reoccurring. His goal from the beginning is to make sure he doesn’t have to see you again in the future, and does everything he can to make sure you receive quality care. Thank you Dr. Furman for everything!

I had surgery in 2013 on a herniated disc. I had the same injury last year and thought that a surgery was yet again inevitable. Someone told me about Dr. Furman so I decided to give it a try. Let’s just say I wish I heard of him in 2013. He kept me off the surgery table and my back and neck are feeling better than ever. I see him once or twice per month and he gives me new exercises to strengthen my core and keep my spine safe. He gets to the root of the problem, doesn’t just give temporary fixes. He’s at the top of the chiropractor game in St. Louis. I wouldn’t see anyone else. Thank you Dr. Furman, from me and my family.

I hurt my back over a year ago and struggled to find a doctor who was able to address my pain. I struggled to sit up and stand. And getting in and out of a car and bed was very hard. Many of the doctors I went to wanted to just prescribe medicine and other temporary measures. Nothing that addressed the root issue.

I was so happy to find Lova Health and Lev. Lev not only looks at the injury but the surrounding muscles/bones/nerves. His methods brought me both instant relief and have provided me long-term relief. He is always taking new classes and is on top of new procedures to try. All with the goal of making sure his patients remain healthy.

I went from not being able to squat/deadlift/being unable to stand or sit for long periods of time to now where I can deadlift and squat with ease and recently took a road trip where I had to drive for 15+ hours. I would not have been able to do this before Lev.

I definitely recommend checking him and his practice out! Whether you have an injury or are just looking for a place to help maintain!
