Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My work is often physically demanding. The folks at Central Avenue Health Centre are very thorough and do an excellent job. I highly recommend them to anyone."
    Bernie P. / Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
  • "Dr. Papish has worked wonders on my neck. I was experiencing constant tingling and numbness down my arm and in my hands. I have osteoarthritis in my neck. After several treatments I can now move my neck better and the tingling and numbness has decreased at least 90%. Thanks Roy."
    Sally B
  • "I have been going to Dr. Papish since I had whiplash when I was 16 years old. He is the greatest. Very thorough & knowledgeable. After the adjustment, if you need a massage he has a chiropractic massager to do that. He has a cold lazer machine to alleviate pain & promote healing. He can also make orthotics. I purchased a pair from him & am very happy with them. He is good natured and funny. We always share a laugh or two and he has kept my spine & joints in top form, helped with all kinds of back & joint pain. I highly recommend him."
    Yvonne S
