CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP SUPPORT
I don't normally come to the South Bay for treatments but was in the neighborhood for a business meeting and decided to give Dr. Medina a try. He was very effective and very efficient and the issues in my upper and mid back were resolved with the first visit! I also had a nice talk about his functional medicine practice and am planning on trying to get my parents to visit from SF for Alzheimer's analysis and preventative treatments/consultations. Who knew that there are already treatments available for Alzheimer's!
I've struggled with hormone issues for years. Finally, I went to Dr. Medina and I'm so happy I did. I got a month long female hormone panel done and based on those results Dr. Medina was able to confidently tell me the root cause for why I was still having adult acne issues and unbearable mensural cramps. After only 3 month on the supplement protocol he recommended, my acne was gone, yes gone! I can't tell you how much of a confidence booster that is unless you've lived with acne since your teens. As for my cramps, I've been able to get off the prescription pain killer I was on in order to keep the pain in check and at a level where I wasn't having to throw up. Now I have only a few hours of mild cramps and the rest of my period is pretty easy going. Game changer for me.
I highly recommend Dr. Medina if you are having any hormone issues or feel others haven't been able to help.
I am blown away by Dr. Ernesto's depth of knowledge on integrative and functional medicine. He has the education and expertise to help many difficult and complex issues such as concussion syndrome, Alzheimer's, menier's and more. He is also a really nice person. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Medina has a completely different approach to chiropractics than I've ever experienced. Whereas at other offices I've often felt that the doc spent a minimal amount of time with me--Dr. Medina takes a wholistic approach to health. He always tells me about the latest literature and different ways to improve my health.
I am a dentist so my work takes a major toll on my body. Dr. Medina showed me different exercises and massages that I could incorporate into my day to make me feel better.
I would strongly recommend Ernesto Medina to anyone looking to make a plan to seriously improve their overall health.
I've had a strain in my right rotator cuff for a year and a half before I started working with Dr. Medina. It came to a point where I stayed away from any shoulder workouts. My rehab started around the last week of March 2013, within a month I am back to full mobility in my shoulder and I feel great throughout my whole body. I recommend Dr. Ernesto Medina if you are seeking a Chiropractic doctor.
I have been seeing Dr Medina when he was still practicing up in Fremont. I am a very active guy, gets injury quite often, and he always fixes me up. Fremont is very far for me. Now that he has moved to Cupertino, it's much easier to go see him. I had another arm injury recently, but really needed it to recover in a week for a special workshop. I sent him a message at night, and he responded right away and was able to see me the next day. Again, he fixed me up, gave me all the tips I needed to get good enough for my next practice in a week.
His new office is very conveniently located, close to Santana Row. You can even go for a drink before or after your visit.
Medina is extremely knowledgeable, especially in sports injury, as he is himself a highly skilled martial artist and dancer. He is also very patient, easy going, and always respond very quickly to any inquiry, even when he's traveling. He's a life-saver!
I have been receiving therapy from Dr. Medina for about a year now, and wow! it has made a huge difference in my life. I love staying active, but with this comes getting injured. I had pain on my IT band that carried pain to the side of my knee, then I had low back pain, and recently I injured my shoulder and upper back. Dr. Medina at Vitality has been just exceptional at alleviating my pain. He's not the older doctor you might expect, but he sure has all of the knowledge and expertise you want from a chiropractor. And I will say, I have tried different chiropractors before. He's very comfortable to be around too. Friendly doctor who is happy to explain everything he's doing on you and how to also continue improving as well as to how to avoid getting hurt again by teaching you proper body mechanics. I cannot recommend Dr. Medina enough, it really is a blessing to find a doctor whom you can really trust. I tell all of my friends to come to his clinic in Fremont any time they get injured. Oh! but not only when injured, but also even if you feel some pain around your body. One of my pains came from carrying a purse with too much weight; it completely misaligned my body which began giving me pain..so one can get hurt in even the most insignificant ways. .anyway, I can talk about all the discomfort and pain Dr. Medina has alleviated for me for hours! All I'm going to say is Thank you Dr. Medina!
Hashimoto's disease patient; 23 years old
I went to Dr. Medina after having exhausted all conventional medicine. I was seeing a general practitioner and then an endocrinologist. Moral of the story is that I was still feeling as terrible as when I was diagnosed in May 2018. I went to Dr. Medina with a desperate cry for help in July 2019. I cannot express how much this man has changed my life and the way I view autoimmune diseases now. I went in with a flurry of symptoms and 2 months later, after having undergone his treatment plan, I regained control of my life and the autoimmune disease I'm living with. It was definitely a tough journey but well worth it! Dr. Medina is so knowledgeable in what he does. Time and time again I tell people that he is by far the best, most knowledgeable Doctor I have ever encountered. My advice if you are looking for a new doctor that can actually help you HEAL is; pay attention to what Dr. Medina has to say, follow his treatment plan and recognize that it takes two to tango- meaning that you too will have to put in a good amount of work and will to heal. To me, undergoing all of this has been a 'miracles do happen' moment. Much appreciation for Dr. Medina!
Ps. He's an amazing chiropractic adjustor!
I saw Dr. Medina for my vertigo, and he was able to resolve the issue on the first visit. Turns out I had crystals in my ear that dislodged and entered into an area of my ear which causes dizziness, nausea, and caused me to be out of commission for many days.
Dr. Medina used the Epley maneuver to relocate the ear crystal(s), and within a day I was back on my feet.
His integrative approach to health, nutrition, neurology, and chiropractic makes this doctor really stand out. He is all about results, and he definitely delivers them.
My insurance through my employer gives me 40 visits per year for Chiro (Blue Shield), and I will continue to see Dr. Medina for many health needs.
