Dr. Jeanine Golden
After suffering for months with lower back pain, I found Union Spine and Rehab Center online. A quick call, same day appointment, a comprehensive analysis of my situation put me on the road to recovery. Dr. Jeanine Golden is the Clinical Director and Chiropractic wizard. She is assisted by Dr. Matthew Holtzer and his knowledgeable, professional, caring staff. A prescribed number of visits, adjustments and physical therapies has restored the agility, capability, and flexibility that I enjoyed 10 years ago. Their motto, "We listen, We care, We get results. " is 100 % accurate. Believe me, there is an oasis of wellness waiting at Union Spine and Rehab Center.
Upon my first visit to the center, I was in much pain. Dr. Matthew Holtzer and Dr. Golden worked with me to restore my body so I could do things I could not do before. They have restored me so I have bi pain.
I have been so happy with my experience with Union Spine & Rehabilitation and Dr. Golden. I was in constant pain in my neck before coming here and Dr. Golden took the time to determine what my issues were and to develop a plan to address them. Within a few weeks I was feeling like a new person. When another problem came up , Dr. Golden kept trying new things to address it. She is wonderful! In addition, the office is very well run and everyone here is friendly and helpful! A great experience (my first with chiropractic care) and I would recommend Dr. Golden to anyone!!
I came to Dr. Golden and the Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center in pain and physical discomfort. I am 41 years of age and participate in many golf activities. Whether my lifestyle or activity level has created my issues, Dr. Golden has rendered them nearly gone.I was unable to sleep, walk for long distances and to lift heavy objects left me nearly incapacitated. Dr. Golden and I agreed to work diligently on realigning my body and with gentle progress I began to see a huge difference in my daily day to day level of discomfort. I am virtually pain free and enjoy the physical freedom that this provides. I am even able to shovel snow! Dr. Golden is dedicated, a very hard worker, kind and knowledgeable. She listens to me very carefully ans then proceeds with her "magic". I would not hesitate to recommend Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center to any individual.
Thank You Dr. Golden
I have dealt with lower back pain on and off for the past seventeen years. I finally decided I needed help and discovered Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center. From my first visit I was impressed with the kindness and professionalism of the secretarial staff and Doctor's Pollard and Golden. The staff is really welcoming and willing to answer your every question. Doctor's Pollard and Golden were able to greatly minimize the acute pain in my lower back, clearly articulate the problem in my back and work with me towards recovery. They were honest and accurate with their expectations regarding treatment. I recommend their expertise to those looking to resolve or improve their battle with back pain.
I was experiencing severe pain in my right shoulder and neck for 2 weeks. My MD's only answer was prescription pain killers and muscle relaxers. I was not satisfied with my MD's answers. A family friend referred me to Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center and within 2 days of visiting Dr. Pollard the pain and tightness had disappeared. I definitely would refer all my friends and family to see them!
P.S. Karen is the best!!
Since I started coming here, Dr. Holtzer has helped me loosen my muscles and lessen my pain. I look forward to my appointments and I can't wait to see how much it will help me improve on my daily performances.
My experience with Dr. Matt has been a great one. I had previously gone to therapy with someone else and they did not help me. Since I have gone to Dr. Matt my shoulder has improved 100%. I would highly recommend Dr. Matt for physical therapy.
I became a patient back in September 2013. Since day 1 the staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctors used their Chiropractic expertise to assist in the alleviation of my intense back pain. It's April and I have never felt better!

I've been seeing Dr. Golden for over 10 years. I am a hairstylist and am constantly standing and moving. She has been the only chiropractor I've seen that has always made me feel better after each visit. The office staff is always friendly and welcoming. I will be a patient at Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center for life !

I have been going to Union Spine & Rehabilitation Center for many years. I started seeing Dr. Golden three times a week and gradually once per week for painful sciatica. Over the years I went to maintenance every four to five weeks. My pain has never come back due to maintenance. Like a car needs to be taken care of, so does your body to run properly.

When I arrived I was in bad shape. After six weeks of treatment, my back is feeling so much better. This is my first experience with using a chiropractor and I think Dr. Golden and Dr. Pollard know their profession well. They have helped me tremendously. I will continue to use them for maintenance and recommend them to everyone.

Dear Dr. Golden and staff,
First, I would like to begin to thank you for your hard work and dedication. I have never met a doctor's office as kind and caring as Dr. Golden's. She really cares for her patient's well being and her office has payment options that work best for the patient's needs. She offers qualitative care and takes her time to explain and educate a person on what's going on in one's body. I have been coming to Dr. Golden's office for two years and have improved so much. I used to have a lot of low back pain and bad posture. In order to see and feel the difference, the office visits have to be constant. The first year I wasn't coming in much because of work, but this year I have made it a priority in coming twice a week and have seen major improvement. Chiropractic care does not only help the structure of your body, it also helps the function of your body.
Thank you Dr. Golden for helping me feel better and thank you staff for doing such a wonderful job !
Best Wishes Always,
I think Dr. Golden is wonderful! Dr. Golden is not only kind and compassionate, but she went above and beyond to help me get treatment. If it weren't for Dr. Golden I don't think I would be walking. She has special stretches and adjustments that help the pain and get you moving. I wish more doctors were more interested in helping their patient's any way they can instead of just worrying about how much money they are making. She is my angel.
I've only been going to Dr. Golden for about seven weeks, but I feel 100 % better. Alot of pain I was getting in my back is gone and the strange feeling I was getting in the top part of my back from shoulder to shoulder is gone. Coming to Dr. Golden was the right thing to do and I'm glad I did.
Dr. Golden cares! She educates and encourages along the way. Her office is a professional environment. She is an asset to the community of Union and is helping many people to feel better. What I like best about Dr. Golden is that she listens, answers all questions, and has taken the time to get to know me.
Dear Dr. Golden,
After nearly 20 years as a construction laborer, nearly every disc in my back and neck where either bulged, decayed or pinching a nerve. The pain had become unbearable. My job had even taken steps to retrain me as an office worker but the simple repetition of answering a busy phone or typing correspondence were often too painful for me over an eight hour day.
Unbeknowest to me, my case was complicated by exposure to toxins during the clean up of ground zero. The inflammation that was in my nerves and joints became crippling. Asthma, emphysema, and grandulomas in my lungs robbed me of my energy. Reoccuring bouts of bronchitis and sinusitis required nearly monthly rounds of antibiotics. My immune system was almost destroyed.
I never really considered chiropractors an option until the doctors at Mt. Sinai Hospital who were studying my sypmtoms mentioned some studies that said it would be affective for my asthma.
You, Dr. Golden, came highly recommended by numerous friends and neighbors as a devoted and empathetic healer as well as a knowledgeable and capable chiropractor. I must admit I was skeptical at first, but now, after just a few months of regular treatment, not only do I feel far more flexible but also my asthma symptoms have become more manageable. My lungs have become clearer.
Your treatment has helped increase the number of "good days" that I have and has lessened my use of pain killers. The haunting prospect of spinal surgery does not seem in my immediate future. For this I will be forever grateful.
Dear Dr. Golden,
As you know, when I came to you for my first visit I was in excruciating pain. I had to resort to taking a lot of pain killers just to get through my day. If I drove anywhere, it took me a couple of hours to walk upright again. When I got up from my desk at the office I had to stand for several minutes before I could walk. The worst thing was the sleepless nights. I never made it through a whole night without waking up several times to take pain killers or rub some kind of pain killing cream on my back and leg. None of these methods of relieving pain actually worked. They were all stop-gap.
Then I found your name in the Suburban News. I had been to chiropractors before, some helped, some didn't. I decided to give it one more try. I explained to you that other doctors I had visited had been a little rough with me and I needed a lighter touch. You agreed to treat me any way that would make me comfortable. You tried a different method to adjust me and it worked. Within two months of regular visits my pain was gone, not just covered up with medication but completley gone. I now sleep through the night and feel like a new person. I fully expect that with regular follow-up visits I will stay pain free.
I now enjoy driving again. I can sit through a show and get up and walk afterwards. I can take care of my little grandchildren and get them in and out of their car seats. I'm enjoying life again like a younger person. If someone had not experienced the pain and inconvenience that I did for so long they would not understand how wonderful it is to find a doctor like you that could pinpoint my problems, fix them, and maintain them.
Thank You from the bottom of my heart,

Dear Dr. Golden,
Little did I know when I came to you for back and leg pain, that you would help me so much with my sinuses as well.
I have had terrible sinus problems for over 20 years. I could hardly breath out of my nose and completely lost my sense of smell.
I've been taking perscription allergy pills for years, but they never seemed to make me feel 100% better and they made me feel drowsy.
After being under your care for only six weeks, I have been able to stop taking the allergy pills, I can breath through my nose, AND I'm actually starting to get my sense of smell back.
Thank You So Much!!!
