When I was seeking alternatives to frequent steroid injections for osteoarthritis in my thumbs, I wanted to be able to manage pain, build strength, and improve functionality for daily chores, as well as the work I do in my business. Dr. Strang provided that and more. Together we have settled on a treatment option of periodic acupuncture that has given me great relief and much improved functionality. I am so happy to have found these caring professionals!

Dr. Strang was awesome! I came in with lower back pain and she did a very thorough exam up front and after a few sessions (and some homework!) my pain has vanished. Great work!

Dr Nugent- has really helped me with longstanding physical problems in my lower back, knees and calves. He paid very close connection to how my body moved and identified the underlying issues behind the surface pain (which many other physical therapists, chiropractors, and orthopedists had not). He has given me a set of stretches and exercises that have helped me improve the quality of high and return me to a very active lifestyle. He is outstanding.

Massage, Adjustment, and Workout Buddy All in One
I've already told multiple people since my first appointment earlier this week, but I love my new Chiropractor. We started the session reviewing my pain points. Then, Dr. Nugent worked on an area of my back that had been hurting. After that, he adjusted me. At the end, we did a little mini workout and talked about how working out certain muscle groups would help with my knee pain. Next time, we're planning to add more of the workout. Great to see a holistic approach to wellness like this.

Dr. Nugent is OUTSTANDING
Dr. Nugent is a caring and effective professional. I highly recommend him and his practice. Having seen many doctors over the years, Dr. Nugent is by far the best in terms of style and treatment.
May 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Nugent is a genius!
The only guy I would ever allow to examine my degenerative discs, Dr. Nugent cares about your problems and does everything in his power and skill to fix what's wrong and help you get back to normal, I can't say enough about his company and how he can heal problems other doctors say cannot heal. Continue the good work Dr. Nugent!!

Dr. Strang treats the whole person. She has been treating me for my primary complaint that is orthopedic. When I could not battle the 2014 Pollen Vortex, she used her acupuncture knowledge to treat my symptoms. My body responded almost immediately to this powerful treatment - better than any medicine I have taken. After three weeks of misery, my symptoms were dropped from almost overwhelming to nearly negligible. I am amazed, thrilled, delighted, and relieved.
Apr 13, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I keep going back to Dr. Strang because she is so skilled in her treatments, professional, personable, and she remembers everything. I feel like I am being helped by a friend. And she really does help me. I always leave feeling better than when I arrived.
Apr 9, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Nugent was again helpful and compassionate. I know if I am in pain he will take care of me as soon as possible.
Mar 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Saw Dr. Jenni for headaches and neck pain for several months now and have seen Dr. Jim as well. Both are excellent! Dr. Jenni's approach works best for me - less harsh manipulation and more mobilization, gentle traction, and massage. She really focuses on the whole person and listens. She's willing to try new things as well as tweak what isn't working so well. I look forward to my sessions with her!

Very happy customer!
Dr. Jim has been a very compassionate, caring, and knowledgable doctor as I have been seeing him for treatment after a car accident. His care plan is clearly thought through and patient focused. I also received a massage from Lilly today, which was amazing and right on board with what I need. While I have not seen Dr. Jennifer, I hear she is amazing as well. Highly recommend this place!
Feb 5, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Lili provided one of the best and most professional massages I have ever received. She made sure to take care of all my pain areas and created a very relaxing environment. Everyone was very friendly. I would highly recommend River Forest Health and Wellness.

Saved from pain
Drs. Jenny and Jim are an amazing team. While I officially see Dr. Jenny, Dr. Jim is open and accessible to me for questions in his area of expertise. Together, these two caring physicians have helped me to gain relief from significant pain and restricted mobility. I recommend them very highly to anyone.
Jan 20, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Jennifer and Dr Jim are very caring and patient. They made me feel comfortable and took their time with me. The facility is very nice inside, it is very relaxing. I thought scheduling an appointment was very easy, very user friendly. Also, parking is free!
Jan 18, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Pain relief is in sight!!
I was referred to RF Health & Wellness by a friend who had similar pain issues. She was totally relieved, so I was excited to get treatment. My 1st visit was very informative and useful, and Dr. Jim was a great communicator. I look forward to being pain-free and back to my golf swing in 6-8 weeks!!!
Jan 11, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I cannot say enough great things about both Dr. Jim and Dr. Jennifer. I see Dr. Jennifer for acupuncture (and everything else I would normally see a "conventional doctor" for). She has truly been a blessing to me in every way. Extremely knowledgeable and equally passionate, I feel 100% better every time I leave her presence!
Dec 15, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Thorough and helpful
At first I felt a little overwhelmed with the issues that need addressed but Dr. Strang was was gentle, explanatory, and reassuring. She suggested a gentler, slower approach to treatment for my headaches and neck pain. River Forest Health and Wellness lives up to its name - they want to get to the source, not just treat the symptoms.
Nov 29, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I trust these doctors
Receiving so much help with my migraines. They are also advising me on healthy food choices, vitamin supplements, and home exercises. I feel very supported by both doctors. Literally and figuratively.
Nov 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Jim ROCKS!
I made an appointment online, but was hoping to come in earlier. Dr. Jim rearranged his schedule (his personal time) to see me earlier. Plus, the treatments I have received recently and in the past have been really healing and right on. I love the idea of having a partner in my health, well-being, and healing.
Nov 12, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Strang and Dr. Nugent are amazing and will work tirelessly to get you feeling better. Their goal=You Healthy
Nov 7, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Very happy patient
Dr. Strang has helped me tremendously these past 6 months with my issues, and believe me, there are many...stress, chronic pain, etc. She clearly knows what she is doing. Most importantly, loves what she does and truly cares about her patients. Thank you Dr. Strang! You are amazing!
Oct 12, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Strang has provided amazing relief for my chronic pain and discomfort. She is very knowledgeable.
Sep 13, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
This is a wonderful place to go,if you need chiropractic care or acupuncture,both Dr Jim and Dr Jenny are wonderful caring people. They are understanding and treat you gently as possible,I would miss them if they left the area
Sep 12, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best care available
Jennifer is right on. She provides the best care I have ever experienced. The treatments leave me feeling refreshed and each time I go the results last longer than the time before. It's amazing how many different aspects of daily living are improved by her treatments. She provides a mental lift too.
Sep 10, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Jennifer is amazing! She is not only knowledgeable but, also compassionate and caring. I have been going to Jennifer for acupuncture for several months. It has helped me so much with hot flashes, energy and overall wellness. Jennifer is a good listener, accesses where you are at and gives you a tailored treatment. She is at times my therapist since she always ask my stress level and some of my issues come out!. :-) Anyway, she is highly recommended and you won't be disappointed!
Sep 10, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
As someone who doesn't enjoy going to the doctor, I was a little nervous about my appointment with Dr. Nugent. However, he did an excellent job explaining everything to me, answering my questions, and making me feel at ease. I'm also interested in acupuncture, and I was able to meet with Dr. Strang the same day and she's wonderful as well. I'm so happy that they're able to offer me so much in one place! I'd highly recommend.

HELP WITH VERTIGO

19 yr old with mild knee pain and sciatica
During the initial consultation the doctor took me into a private room. he prescribed a series of simple exercises for me to do on my own. Because I am returning to school, he provided me with about six weeks of therapy in an hour! He also gave me his email in case I needed anything while at school. These people really go above and beyond.
Aug 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I recommend Drs. Strang and Nugent wholeheartedly. They have helped me tremendously. Every time I would go back to the gym, I’d end up with terrible migraines and need to stop. I’m already stronger, sleep better, and have more energy with less pain. Their caring and compassion is immediately evident. Unlike other DCs I’ve met, they don’t try to get you back 3-4 times a week for years on end. They focus on getting you better and back to your life. They are among the best docs I've met.
Aug 6, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
After a bike accident in which my skull was fractured I subsequently developed a syndrome in which the vertebrae in my neck were pressing against my spine and causing my leg to shake like a rabbit! It's called Ankle Clonus. Everyone wanted to put me on nervous system depressants but Dr. Nugent found a series of exercises that put the vertebrae back where they belong. No surgery for me! He didn't stop until we found out how to treat it. Genius is an understatement.
Jul 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
One of a kind!
Dr. Nugent is in a league of his own. No other doctor has ever helped my back pain like he has. Nodoby is better ...guaranteed! Highly recommended!
Jul 18, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best decision I've ever made!
I'm so glad I finally saw a chiropractor for my back pain that started this past year. Dr. Nugent is friendly, funny, and incredibly helpful. My back felt pretty bad the past couple days, and after one hour with Dr. Nugent I felt much better. He gave me stretches and exercises to work on everyday, and explained everything clearly. He has such a positive attitude and really made me believe that my back will be totally back to normal some day. I highly recommend River Forest Health and Wellness!
Jul 12, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
OMG!!! Amazing, drug-free pain relief!
Dr. Strang relieved four years of back and leg pain that was unresponsive to even powerful drugs. Each acupuncture treatment is individualized based on the location and intensity of my symptoms at each visit. Dr. Strang is caring, personable, knowledgable, and professional. She gives me her total attention and asks appropriate questions. She also provides me with good direction for post-treatment behaviors. All the patients I have recommended to her are delighted with her care.
Jun 18, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I have been to see Dr. Strang on a number of occasions. She is particularly perceptive at diagnosing problems. Using a few strategically placed accupuncture treatments and chiropractic adjustments she is able to relax my tight muscles and I feel 100 percent better. I'll be back!
May 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best Groupon buy I've ever made
Dr. Strang is fabulous. Her accupuncture treatments have given me tremendous relief. She has done more for me in a couple of months than physical therapy, pain medications or spinal injections have done over the past three years. My life has improved dramatically. Family and friends are amazed by the changes in my physical ability; some of them have begun successful treatments with Dr. Strang.
May 11, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Nugent is a great doctor! I was referred to him by a co-worker of mine and I am so glad I decided to schedule an appointment. I have been living with low back pain because I did not want to take pain medications and muscle relaxers. Dr Nugent performed physical therapy exercises with me along with chiropractic adjustments and after a few visits I am pain free. He has earned a patient for life and I have recommended many of my friends and family to him!
May 9, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
great first visit
Having never seen a chiropractor before, I really had no idea what to expect. What I thought would be a quick once-over and a possible adjustment turned out to be just the opposite. The practice is inviting and Dr. Jim was professional, yet warm and approachable. He completed a thorough examination with explicit and informative explanations each step of the way. I learned a great deal in just one session and look forward to more visits.
May 7, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Previous ratings were right on.
One visit in and one happy patient. Everyone before me was right on. I felt Dr. Strang had a genuine in desire to help me heal.
May 4, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
River Forest Health and Wellness is the best place to go,Dr Jim and Dr Jennie are the best,friendly and professional.The atmosphere is friendly and clean. I highly recommend both Drs for chiropractic and acupuncture care
May 3, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Doctors who care about their patients
I have been a patient of Dr. Strang for a few months now. I actually see her once a week for acupuncture. She is kind, caring, sincere and extremely intelligent. I learn something new from her every week. Because of my treatments, I sleep and feel better. I highly recommend her!
Apr 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Nugent and Dr. Strang are both the "go to" physicians around. I felt individually important the very first time I walked through their doors and into their care. While living in Chicago I will come to them first because of the hospitality, care, and sincerity.
Apr 16, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I highly recommend Dr. Jim Nugent and River Forest Health and Welness. They are skilled, consultative and treatment-oriented.
Mar 28, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best all around physicians around
Any doctor you see at river forest health and wellness is invested in your treatment and willing to go the extra mile.
Feb 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Very good first visit.
I met w/Dr. Nugent and spent time going over what I want to accomplish with my health. He had me do some exercises, did an adjustment and gave me some homework to do. I think this is going to be beneficial for me to continue and I look forward to my next session.
Feb 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Great 1st visit
This was my first time trying acupuncture. Dr. Strang was wonderful! She listened to my concerns and treated me accordingly. I look forward to my second session!
Feb 18, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Nothing but great things to say.
I am always able to make appointments and have a lot of communication with the doctor. My sessions have been extremely beneficial and the time is used effectly.
Feb 13, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I couldn't ask for a better experience making appointments. Having the opportunity to book a time even if it's late at night is great. The care I get is outstanding, compassionate, and effective.
Feb 9, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Strang's expert acupuncture treatment for pain and discomfort provided immediate relief. THANK YOU!

Just make the appt
You'll be glad you did. Dr. Nugent is very personable and knowledgeable. He's on the cutting edge of what truly works.
Jan 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Session Monday evening
Dr. Gill was thorough. He listened attentively and asked questions to determine what I needed. My massage took a sports injury approach that addressed an issue I've had for a while. His focus to correct things that have been off balance. Excited for more sessions
Jan 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
enjoyed the session very much
I bought an Amazon coupon for acupuncture and cupping, the first time I've had it done. Dr. Strang was great, very nice and attentive. The session felt great, and I plan to go back.
Dec 31, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Both Dr Jim and Dr Kevin have been very flexible and supportive in helping me regain my flexibility.
Dec 17, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
The best around!
This practice has all the right moves. No pun intended. But seriously, wether you need an adjustment or you are not really sure why you have pain, these doctors are committed to helping you figure it out and get you on the right track.
Dec 10, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Acupuncture and Cupping
My wife and I had a great session with Dr. Strang, who was very attentive to our needs, especially being 1st-timers. The cupping session felt great! We would definitely recommend :-)
Dec 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
After experiencing a lingering knee pain, I went to see Dr. Nugent about possible problems and solutions. Dr. Nugent clearly explained the underlying issue, outline a plan to remedy the pain and allowed extra time for any additional questions I may have had about the process and his role in my recovery.
Nov 30, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Jim and Dr. Jenny are the best!
They both take the time to really listen to your problems and concerns, then explain the treatment and why they believe it will work. So accommodating, flexible and accessible, I won't go anywhere else and recommend them to everyone I know.
Nov 18, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best in the Chicagoland area!
I have been with Dr. Nugent since he was an intern. I have never thought of going anywhere else. He has been able to diagnose my back pain when no one else could. He is also willing to work with me on my crazy ideas. By far the best Chiropractor in the chicagoland area.
Nov 7, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
I would highly recommed anyone to go here,I have recieved awesome care and feel respected ,they have made a huge difference in my life,they will certainly remain as a large part of my medical team

First time visit to River Forest
I was very pleased with the service I received on Monday. Going for a second appointment on Friday and hoping to manage my migranes and neck pain through accupuncture.
Oct 23, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Great office & service!
Dr. Nugent and his partner are great, both are very professional and make you feel at ease during your visit. I've been going to Dr. Nugent for some time now and he helps manage the pain in my neck. I tried accupuncture for the first time and was very happy with my experience. I highly recommend him!
Oct 2, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Nugent is great. He's very thorough in his treatments and very knowledgeable. He's been absolutely fabulous at helping me not only fix a neck injury, but also figure out why it's happening. He obviously enjoys what he does and that really makes a difference in the quality of care. I highly recommend him.
Sep 29, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Nugent is a miracle worker !
Highly recommended for any type of pain. He will make you feel ten times better. Would never trust anyone else! I'm going back at least twice a week !
Sep 16, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Jim cares well for his patients. He is sharp as well as sincere and friendly. The availability and location also help with the experience.
Aug 3, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Nugent is truely right for his profession,a careing Dr who takes the time to work with you and answers questions without beating around the bush I highly recommend him
Jun 27, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr Nugent was amazing!
He really made me feel so much better when nobody else I ever saw could. I highly recommend him to everybody!
Jun 21, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
great first interview
Dr. Nugent was knowledgeable and kind. He listened well, and acknowledged what I knew about my own body during the Q & A and Exam. I felt respected and in good hands at the same time! The next day I felt lighter and had more fluidity in my normal movements.
Jun 19, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Straight Honest Care!
I went in to see Dr. Jim with a nagging tightness between my shoulder blades, after the first of several visits the problem was taken care of. He told me exactly what it was. I would like to say, River Forest Health and Wellness is the place to go for long lasting relief, and great chiropractic care.
Jun 16, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Dr. Nugent and Dr. Marshall did fantastic work addressing lower back and neck issues I have dealt with for some time. Dr. Marshall administered several different acupuncture treatments, and I left relaxed and feeling looser. Besides the standard adjustments chiropractors do, Dr. Nugent ran some insightful diagnostics, and gave me stretches and exercises to do to address the root of the problem. We've since moved to AZ, but I miss them both!
Jun 14, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best Chiropractor ever!
River Forest Health and Wellness is one of the best facilities I have seen. Dr. Nugent is extremely competent, caring, and gentle with treatments. He accurately identifies the cause of pain and provides the right treatment and exercises. I have suffered for years with pain and in just a few visits I am well on my way to recovery! I highly recommend this place.
Apr 28, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
Best investment you could make!
This is the most comprehensive care I've gotten from visiting the chiropractor; Dr. Nugent takes his time identifying exactly what's causing you discomfort and not only helps ease the pain within the first visit, but also teaches you how to prevent it from reoccurring. To make the visit even better, Dr. Nugent genuinely cares about making you feel better and he's extremely personable so you feel very comfortable even when meeting him for the first time. I highly recommend this place!!!
Apr 26, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30182337
changed my outlook on life
A very caring place to go and get wonderful treatment and care.I would highly recommended Dr Nugent he will make you feel better
