Letter: Thankful for Dr. Reneau

Thankful for Dr. Reneau

Isn’t this America, the country of free choice? We can choose which doctor we want or don’t want to treat us and it’s our choice to change. As for the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners, what happened to innocent until proven guilty? To destroy an excellent chiropractor and his reputation based on the misunderstandings or misconceptions of four women is just wrong. What about the thousands of us who are grateful for Dr. Reneau’s caring treatment over the years? Doesn’t the board want to hear our opinions before it passes judgement?

As a young teen, I suffered a neck injury and didn’t realize for 36 years my spine had grown misaligned. By the time I was 50, I’d seen many chiropractors, sports medicine doctors, physical/massage therapists and acupuncturists in Eugene and Roseburg. Not one could relieve me of the pain I was experiencing, so I lived on pain medications.

In July 2001, I began chiropractic treatments under Donald Reneau, DC. I was a physical mess, with severe pain throughout my body. I still remember him telling me what he thought was going on and saying if he couldn’t help me, I wouldn’t owe him a dime. Well, no one told me that before! I could tell he was serious about treating patients and getting results.

For the past 12 years, I’ve been blessed with this compassionate doctor who cares for each of his patients and wants to see them well. With his chiropractic experience, I’ve made great progress. Although I haven’t arrived yet, I’m well on my way. Today, I’m off daily pain medication and enjoying life.

Dr. Don Reneau has been a large part of that. I’m so thankful he was there for me. I want him to be there for others, too.
