I have found great success by going to Belltown Spine and Wellness, my back pain is pretty much cured and I have only been 6 times. This is a great alternative to anyone trying to avoid surgery and taking those harsh pills the doctor can subscribe.

Dr. Mindel seems to have one of the best practices I have ever been to, the knowledge and passion he presents toward his work exceeds any other chiropractor that I have visited. First of all he gave me a free consultation on my first visit and after that we created a monthly schedule with continual visits and after a few visits I felt cured from my back pain and I just feel all around better about everyday.

Back Injuries Suck! I was in a sporting accident, my jerk brother tackled me actually, and I hurt my back pretty back the doctor told me to go to a chiropractic doctor to avoid having to do any type of surgery in the long run. After a few sessions i was nearly back to normal and I felt even better than before, I never have any reservations about going to Dr. Mindel it is always a pleasant time for me.

I'm a big advocate of Naturopathic Medicine and it's benefits. I rely on these techniques for feeling fresh and prepared to take on anything the world throws at me. Thanks Belltown Spine and Wellness!

Dr. Scott is not only a caring but shows his patients respect and is constantly updating his knowledge of the body, musculoskeletal, and nervous system. I have been a patient for over 13 years and trust my kids health to him -- even as early as 3 weeks old. To trust a doctor with your children is to trust a doctor completely. Once you have a doctor that you know cares about you as a person is a true gift to cherish. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my family - I am truly blessed!!

Chatting with fellow patients in the office, I have easily met a dozen people who have been loyal to Dr. Scott for thirteen, fourteen and fifteen years. People maintain longstanding patronage with him because with non-surgical and non-invasive procedures (and without the use of prescription drugs!) he helps people create AND maintain much improved health. My wife and I have both seen major transformations over the years. You're the best out there, Dr. Scott!

I have never written a review online however, felt compelled to do so about Belltown Spine and Wellness and Dr. Scott Mindel. Let me start by saying I went in very skeptical about spine doctors and chiropractic in general. I was diagnosed over a year ago with a herniated L4 L5 and have had extremely frustrating pain and stiffness in my lumbar and thoracic areas of my back as a result. I have seen a "world Renowned" spinal surgeon in Atlanta along with other doctors over the past year. Not opting for surgery I received three epidural shots and all I was told was to do a series of physical therapy twice a day and that it would improve.
Well it did not.

I have been seeing Dr. Mindel for about two months and while my back is not back to 100% yet I have noticed an absolute improvement. I have noticeably less pain and stiffness and I can sleep through the nigh and wake up without pain. Although I don't understand some of the chiropractic techniques and some of the therapy looks midieval, Dr. Mindel is methodical, deliberate and caring and his staff is professional and fun. I would highly recommend Belltown Spine and Wellness...

Wow, did I ever spend too many years doubting the competency of chiropractic. It has made such a positive impact on my health! Since I have made Dr. Mindel my ?general practitioner?, I no longer waste time with so-called medical doctors who always just want to address my symptoms by writing a prescription. Dr. Mindel actually helps me heal the source of my problems by addressing my nervous system, musculoskeletal system, and especially my spine. Dr. Mindel has also seen my out-of-town sister whenever she visits me. He has alleviated her pain and surely has prevented future problems that she would have suffered....she now religiously makes appointments with him whenever she is in Seattle.

Once when I was in his office I saw Roger Daltrey (lead singer of The Who)! He was in Seattle doing a concert, and it didn?t surprise me a bit to learn that of all the chiropractors he could have gone to see, he chose to be in Dr. Mindel?s care. (I later found out that Roger returned for another spinal adjustment before flying out to continue his tour!)

I've been a patient of Belltown Spine and Wellness since September of last year. When I first walked in I noticed it wasn't like other places that provide chiropractic services.
They started out with a full range of motion testing and set of x-rays to see what was structurally deficit then they created a treatment plan to address the concerns.
They also listen to you as to where you are having pain and they work with you to address the issue. They approimately every 6-8 weeks re run the testing/x-rays to see if there's any improvement. They also consistantly ask how I'm feeling and address any concerns I have. They are great at explaining why they are doing something and go into detail explaining what they are seeing on the xray/the range of motion testing. When it comes to the PT section they explain why you are doing whatever PT you are doing and give you an understanding of what to expect from it. As well as make sure that you are comfortable.
They treat you as a person not as a number.
I can't say anything other than the highest praise for Dr.Scott and his incredible staff.
They've done great by me.

Short story. For whatever reason they did not give me a bill till my 6th visit and guess what, they are charging each visit (20-30min with many people at the same time) as 1 chiro and 1 PT in my insurance. We all know that we have limited of number of those in my quota in a year and did not expect to use so many up. So basically for 6 SHORT visits (normally 1 chiro is 20 min and 1 PT is 1 hour), I used up 6 chiro and 6 PT. That is very surprising. I did not get informed about that till my 6th visit which I did not appreciate.

Long story:
well, I met Dr. Scott at the green festival and he seemed to be knowing his stuff. So I checked his place online and so far only good reviews although a bit outdated. So there I went. Did not like my 1st visit since I waited 20 min while showed up on time and got 5 min of Dr. Scott's time and then waited another 15 min and got another girl doing some general measurements which did not seem that useful at all. The office has many people and Dr. Scott sees (works on multiple at all times) many patients in any short period which I feel he is not really focused and was rushing definitely many times that I was there. I did not feel the exclusive service I got from other chiropractice at all. So I had my concerns for a while. When I asked about my billing, they keep saying the person who does that just was not able to get around to get that done. I did not have any doubts since a chiro is a chiro and they seemed to be doing OK although the assistants were doing a lot of the work I felt Dr. Scott should be doing. Well, I guess it is a little different. I thought well, if I can get my neck and back better, who cares as long as I get better. THEN, I got my billing at my 6th visit and then I found out for each visit which is like 20-30 min with many clients waiting around for their turn, I am being charged for 1 PT and 1 chiro using up my quota double time faster than I thought. OK, I got premera and that is a pretty standard insurance and I have seen chiro and PT with this insurance before. It just does not make any sense. When I called, the person kept saying that is how they do the billing with whatever code. I also questioned that there is no certified Physical Therapist there though. However, she kept saying they do the billing according to what they did in the office. OK, I guess this is what they do. In summary, I am using two slots for each short visit to get 5-10 min of chiro and some not so qualified assistant charging at a PT rate for another 20 min. I am not sure if this is a good choice. Plus, it is always so busy in the office in the not so good way, all the assistants trying to help multiple patient at any given time and Dr. Scott has everyone lined up for him and sometimes he is so busy, I felt he is not even listening so much about my concerns. Which is what happens if you are too busy.

So in conclusion I would not recommend this place. I am not going back there myself and I felt I would appreciate someone wrote a review for me here so that I do not have to make this mistake. So that is why I am here writing this. I usually do not write reviews. Guess I am now.

Cons: busy, each visit (20-30 min) used 1 chiro and 1 PT slots

As a 27 year old marketing professional, I never would have thought that my spine was so out of alignment. After the original exam where he went down my spine checking each vertabrate and letting me know what organs it touched, I was amazed that all of my chronic "normal" conditions were tied to vertabrates that were out of alignment. If you have the insurance coverage, you should at least check this out. He has a solid view of the spine's holistic value to our entire body. He infuses eastern medicinal practices into adjustments without preaching or rambling on. It's an incredibly comfortable environment. They have flexible scheduling. And you learn a lot about just how important a healthy spine is.

Pros: Flexible Scheduling, Free Parking... in BELLTOWN, Quick service, usually 10-20 minutes total.

I have known Dr. MIndel for over 14 years. He was the second chiropractor that I have seen in my life. When he first started treating me, he was still a student at Life Chiropractor school in Marietta, Gerogia. I had tremendous migrane headaches and lower back problems. In no time at all, my migranes were gone and I haven't had any to this date. Dr. MIndel decided to move to Seattle after graduating from chiropractic school and that deeply saddened me. He had made such an impact on me and my overall health, I decided to move to Seattle too with my family. I continue to see him for regular maintenance of my spine and any other problems that might occur. Dr. Scott is truly an amazing, caring doctor that actually takes the time to listen to his patients. He has such a positive attitude about his work and life in general. He keeps updated on new techniques in an ever changing world. Once you have started seeing him for your chiropractic care, you will want to keep coming back because you feel so much better and who doesn't want that, especially when you get older.

I have seen Dr. Julie Sutton ever since she has joined Belltown Spine and Wellness. I was diagnosed with neuropathy due to diabetes in my legs and feet and she is treating me with acupuncture. I have never had any acupuncture, so I didn't know what to expect. I have greatly improved with her care . I would highly recommend having acupuncture for nerve problems that eminate from diabetes. Dr. Julie is also treating me for other health conditions. I have seen a remarkable difference in my health and I know I am on the right road back to good health by taking naturopathic medicine. She won't give up on you when you get discouraged. You couldn't ask for a better team of doctors. One compliments the other in their work to help you gain health, to live longer and most of all, happier. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone who is serious about getting healthier.

Pros: Love to read what kind of positive inspirations Dr. Scott picks to put on his bulletin board for his patients.

Cons: Can't get enough of a good thing.

I did not know Dr. Scott Mindel from Adam and had limiting negative beliefs about Chiropractors going into my first appointment. Dr. Scott did not send me away from my first appointment with prescriptions for hardcore narcotics to cover up the pain. Instead he took X-Rays and put me through a sophisticated technologically advanced analysis of my spine. He correctly diagnosed the source of my back pain and has eliminated the pain I have been struggling with for over ten years. Dr. Scott is a good communicator and will teach about not only what is causing your back pain but how you can realistically maintain a healthy back in your daily life. At no time have I had anything but complete confidence is his knowledge of his craft and I can attest first hand to Dr. Scott's abilities. I had never been seen by a chiropractor prior to my first visit and I feel fortunate to that I made an appointment at this particular office as my overall health has much improved.

About a year ago I was in a lot of pain due to complications related to scoliosis. I found myself looking at a strong possibility of invasive surgery to fuse a bunch of my vertebrae together. So I started looking at alternatives and ended up at Belltown Spine & Wellness. The results have been phenomenal.

I started out hunched over like a twisted old man at 32 and not able to sleep through the night. After months of interesting therapies involving tables, straps, weights and exercises, including things to do at home, Dr. Mindel has gotten me to the point where I'm able to be active and healthy again. I'm quite at home in the friendly and professional atmosphere at Belltown Spine & Wellness and my back has been recovering nicely. Dr. Mindel is always learning and innovating in his treatments and therapies and I think it really pays off. Besides that, I've been able to avoid a $100K+ surgery and I have an increasingly functional lower back.

Thanks BT S&W!

My husband and I have been going to Belltown Spine and Wellness for about 2 months, and we're both feeling much better. I had neck problems after a car accident and I haven't had any pain since I started seeing Dr. Mendell. He uses a variety of techniques and all his patients use weights too to strengthen the muscles supporting the spine which has also made a huge difference.
I just started seeing Dr. Sutton as well for acupuncture and have noticed marked improvements already. The staff and doctors are very professional and both Dr. Mendell and Dr. Sutton are very talented. You will be well taken care of here.
