Possibly decent but wasn't impressed – I am a relatively healthy person in my mid-twenties but nonetheless have been experiencing back pain for a few years, exacerbated by my job. I went to Dr. Golub based on the recommendations on this site, but I have to admit that I was not impressed and will not be returning.
The good: There is free parking in the back. It was easy to make an appointment. Dr. Golub is sees patients on Saturday, which is great for those of us that work during the rest of the week. The appointment started on time (one of the good things of being the first appointment of the day).
The bad: I felt that Dr. Golub did not take me/my appointment seriously. Based on the fact the first question he asked was whether or not I'd be willing to make the drive to see him regularly (since I don't live in Santa Monica), he seemed more concerned in finding regular patients. While I understand that distance is a legitimate concern, I was surprised that this was his first concern before finding out what problems I had. During my appointment, he seemed distracted, often stopping to check his Blackberry and did not seem to listen to my answers, giving the same general response regardless of whether I answered in the positive or negative. Additionally, the lotion he used seemed rather unhygienic given that came in a large unlabeled tub in which he would dip his hands.
All in all, Dr. Golub may be a good chiropractor, but I wouldn't have guessed by my visit. I'll be looking for a chiropractor elsewhere.
SPORTS FITNESS & REHABILITATION – This an unsolicited indictment. I have been around the Santa Monica and LA for 69 years. After returning from the Military in July of 1965.

I have received chiropractic care for 35 years. Joe Gould my beach volleyball partner first sent me in the early 70's.
Dr Golub and the Spine Force have given me a far greater pain free way of life.

I've seen first-hand the results of his work and often it has been amazing. Dr. Golub is thoughtful, kind, and deeply caring. I greatly appreciate his healing expertise!
Best Chiropractic you can find. – Dr. Mark Golub is an exceptional professional. I was always afraid of Chiropractic until he explained his approach-- which is to use the integratioin of movement, and gentle manipulation to help you achieve balance in your body. Dr. G. treats the whole organism, skeletal, musculature ,and nervous system; it's all natural, painless, and most important-- it works! I haven't had any lower back pain in over 9 months. And he gave me the tools to keep it away for good. Still it's nice to know he's there if and when I might need a tune-up. Thank you!
Great Chiropractor – I consider Marc Golub to be "a chiropractor's chiropractor." If you just want your back cracked, find someone else. If you're looking for a health care professional who makes every effort to incorporate your lifestyle into his methodology, Dr. Golub is for you. He leads the way in cutting-edge technology with his Spine Force and related treatment. But don't let the fancy machines fool you. Dr. Golub's strenght is in his bedside manner. He asks questions -- lots of them -- before working his magic. I saw Dr. Golub for treatment of my ankle that I sprained playing basketball. After only one treatment and some simple home exercises he showed me, I was back on the court in just two days. For me, at age 43, that's a small miracle. If you care about your body and who treats it, Dr. Golub is your chiropractor.
#1 Chiropractor Anywhere – Marc is simply the best. He is truly interested in your health and well-being. He is very professional and an amazing doctor.

Always leave feeling better than when I arrived! – Dr. Golub is a gentle and caring chiropractor that listens to my needs and is able to find ways to adjust me where other have not. His calming ways help make me feel more comfortable. Dr. Golub has a strengthening machine that is helping my muscles support my spine better. It is also helping me gain better balance as well as learning how to prevent my injuries interfering with my daily routine. I would highly recommend Dr. Golub and will continue to work with him.
Compassionate care with amazing technology – If you're looking for a chiropractor with knowlege and years of experience, AND with state of the art technology, then look no further. Dr. Golub is an amazing chiropractor who asks questions, listens and asks even more questions before considering how he can help you.
After only a few sessions, I noticed a difference in my posture and level of comfort at the end of a long day sitting in my office. The stretches that he gave me were quick and simple, which supported me in creating a quick routine, which ultimately assisted in lengthening the time between appointments.
When you're ready to feel great, then call Dr. Golub.
Fast results with my ankle – In just one session on SpineForce, a new machine to help recovery, my ankle felt much stronger. It looks huge and cumbersome, but it was just the opposite. Dr. Golub knows this machine inside and out. He guided me through each exercise with confidence and reassurance. 3 years ago I sprained my ankle and simply wrapped it for a week. It did not heal correctly and I have had problems with it ever since. Dr. Golub assured me this new innovative machine would help. After the first session I was ready to go again.
What I like about Dr. Golub is his gentle strength and commitment to health and wellness. I can tell he really cares and wants people to feel good. Not only do I like him and his approach to health, I like this strange new machine!!!
Best Chiropractor in Town – Dr. Golub is young, progressive and in tune with the human body. He uses state of the art equipment such as Spine Force to exercise and stretch the spine to make adjustments easier and more effective. After my first treatment with spine force I knew this was different and special. After 5 visits I felt stronger, looser and slept better. Dr. Golub takes the individuals lifestyle into consideration too. Before telling me what exercises to do he asked me about how my days usually go. He gave me tips and pointers of how to stretch that wouldn't require an attire change or even a venue change. I could stand at my desk while on the phone and do my exercise. The Back Doc, as I call him, also has this vacuum cleaner looking gizmo that removes stress right through your skin and out of your muscles. I had a bad frontal headache that disappeared after a 5 minute treatment with that thing. Take yourself and send your friends to Dr. Golub, the Back Doc, for health care that works.
