THE BEST CHIROPRACTOR
DR.MICHAEL TOYOOKA, MONA & OTHER STAFF MEMBERS ARE VERY PERSONABLE; A GREAT BUNCH OF PEOPLE.
I HAVE EXPERIENCED SEVERAL CHIROPRACTORS IN THE PAST YEARS. ALL HAVE USED THE "CRACKING METHOD".
MY HUSBAND WAS TREATED BY ONE SUCH WHO MUST HAVE CRACKED EVERY BONE IN HIS BODY. THE NEXT NIGHT FOLLOWING THAT VISIT, HE WOKE UP FROM A POKING PAIN FROM INSIDE HIS BODY TO OUTSIDE ALL OVER HIS BODY. IT WAS A PAIN THAT HE COULD NOT DESCRIBE. IT WAS REALLY TERRIBLE.
MY OWN OPINION IS THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT MADE TO HAVE THEIR BONES CRACKED.
DR. MICHAEL TOYOOKA USES THE ACTIVATOR TYPE OF INSTRUMENTS WHICH I THINK WORKS WAY BETTER THAN "CRACKING". HE IS GENTLE , COMPASSIONATE AND ACCOMMODATING.
WE HAVE BEEN GOING TO DR. MIKE'S FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, MY WHOLE FAMILY SEEKS TREATMENT HERE.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. MICHAEL TOYOOKA AND HIS METHOD TO PROVIDE HEALING TO YOUR BODY.
- KATHY .
High quality service and friendly staff
I'm always happy to visit Dr. Toyooka when my body needs help, and have been very pleased
with the results. I like the activator technique. I find it more gentle and also effective.
I'd definitely recommend him!
- Alice .
Love Dr. Chris and Mona at the desk too...always friendly and accommodating.
Feels like your just talking story with a friend while he adjusts you and next thing you know your pau and hate to leave cause you still want to hang out and talk some more.
- Michelle .
Dr Michael Toyooka was very helpful and professional, was my first time and for sure would go back if needed more treatment.
- Mike .
Dr. Toyooka is both personable and professional & knows how to use his gadgets to maximum effect!

He did a great job as usual.
- Arthur .
Great service, no long waits, very personal treatment, no rush
Dr. Chris was great, Mona was great (the receptionist). Very personal. It was my first time ever visiting a Chiropracter so my sample size is small. I do not know if the health benefits warrant the visit just yet but will give it a fair shot and go for a few more visits. He did point out my trouble areas and I am more aware of them now. I went cause I have tightness in the neck, upper back, traps area and I forgot to elaborate that even though I do not feel pain in those areas, I went to see him cause at work it's so tight that I want to just take my hands and beat those parts of my body up to alleviate stress but I forgot to tell him that on the questionnaire cause it asked for pain 1-10 and I put 1 cause it's not pain that I went to see him for but tightness. I can't compare him to other chiropractors cause I have not seen anyone else but so far I am pleased with the visit and will be going back in Friday
- Kendall .
Always accommodating. The wife and I are special needs basis :). Only when our schedule is clear we get to see Dr. Chris. Top Notch!!! Funny guy too real personable

Dr. Chris' expertise is essential to my maintenance program. He enables me to move and function with minimum pain and discomfort and without the use of pain killers. In addition, he and his staff are professional and congenial at all times.

- Nalani K
Professional, knowledgeable, honest
Dr. Toyooka took the time to explain his philosophy, how his equipment works, and exactly what he would be and was doing as he proceeded with my treatment. He also explained what to expect post-treatment (muscular changes, etc.). Professional and assuring, he is a breath of fresh air after dealing with a different chiropractic service, which shall remain unnamed, that overcharged me and my son, giving chiropractors a bad name. Conveniently located in the Kaimuki Shopping Center, his offices are well-lit, clean, welcoming, and comfortable. I, my son, and my husband will look no further for chiropractic services, a non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical alternative to our family doctor and specialists. Bravo and "at last!"
- W Y
I have been going to Dr. Toyooka for a few years now, most recently for a pinched nerve. His quality of service is top notch and just what I need to refresh and realign my body. The office worker Mona is very professional and helpful, and the massage therapists also do a wonderful job. Overall I highly recommend Dr. Mike for your chiropractic needs.
- Kristen .

Dr. Mike Helps To Relive
I started going to The Chiropractic Offices of Dr. Christopher Piianaia & Dr. Michael Toyooka 3 yrs ago & look forward to my treatments ever since. Even when I moved out of state, I like Dr. Mike's bedside manner & his use of acuator treatment. No "okay, take a breath" then CRACK! I feel relieved & his massage therapy staff are amazing. Dr. Piianaia is a very welcoming partner. I feel well-treated when I leave.
- Karen Chang .
Knee and back pain
I received initial treatment from Dr. Toyooka and felt nearly immediate relief. I had been suffering from constant knee pain for nearly 3 years, his treatment relieved the pain and I felt the normal range of motion returning to my knee over night. THANKS!!!
- James .
Relief from pain!
I was having problems with standingfour any fine. My lower back would start to throb. I was also having neck pains which only let me sleep for about 5 hours. After visiting Dr Toyooka I was able to to get s full nights sleep and wake with no neck pain!
- Barton .
Very professional and friendly.
My chiropractic experience with Dr. Piianaia was very pleasant in discussing my physical concerns that needed to be addressed. He worked on my left lower back and middle to determine the extent of my discomfort and provided me an explanation of the physical condition I was in. Though I need to return for further treatment, it was a pleasure to meet Dr Piianaia and to be treated by him.
- Robert .
Staffs are so friendly and professional. We love Dr Toyooka, he knows what he's doing and shows that he cares. Would definitely recommend him to families and friends.

High quality service, professional and friendly
Dr. Chris Piianaia's staff is very friendly. He was able to see me the same day I called. I was able to stretch my back and neck on his traction table prior to my appointment. He reviewed my issues with me pre- and post-consult and provided me with easy exercises to do at home.

The best chiropractic care I have ever received in over 20 years!
Dr Piianaia and his staff are absolutely superior! I have major back issues and his treatments have returned me to a normal life. I'm no longer a spectator I am now able to engage and he a part of life!
- Max .
Very High Quality Service, Kind and Professional Care
As apprehensive I was about changing chiropractors, especially since I like my previous doctors. Dr. Piianaia made my first visit very comforable. Not only did he explain what he wanted to accomplish with my treatments he was also realistic in telling me to talk to my PCP to make sure it wasn't something that was a result of my illness or my medication.
I appreciated his honesty in telling me that although he would like my recurring condition to lessen, it probably will never completely disappear. I also appreciated that he knew my previous doctors and commended them for their work and understood why they recommended the treatment they used on me.
I look forward to working with Dr Piianaia and his Office Manager, Mona, who was very kind and helpful in checking my insurance coverage and setting up my appointment.
- Rynette .

Everyone is very friendly and professional.
I was a little leary about going to a chiropractor, however my daughter recommended I should go and doctor Chris. I'm glad I did. Dr. Chris is amazing and makes you feel as if you are family. After sharing my symptoms he explained what it could be than did the adjustments. I felt better then when I got there.
Receptionist Mona is great! Therapists are great too. Over all experience AWESOME!
- Abbie .
I'll be back!
Excellent! Patient experience was top notch from these reminder and follow-up emails to the easy scheduling and check-out process. Dr. Chris was professional, friendly and direct about treatment. Diagnosed my problems with clarity and accuracy.

Excellent professional service
This was my first visit with Dr. Piianaia but I've already made a return appointment. Professional. As a first time patient, he asked me a lot of questions to get to know more about me and why I came in. Then I was examined and expertly adjusted. I look forward to future visits. Recommended.
- Russell .
Dr. Toyooka was very thorough in explaining treatment after discussing patient symptom (injuries) and plan how treatment will be provided and was caring of patient concerns and questions. I would highly recommend him to friends and veterans with injuries who seek great specialized doctors.

Blissful Massage Session
This is the massage I have ever had! I will return again for sure. I am glad that I have fond a place that will help me with my tense neck and upper back.
- Vanessa .
Friendly office, cheerful staff. Comprehensive application. Fine service.
Dr. Mike listened intently as I described why I was there. He asked good questions. Offered a compassionate caring attitude.
I felt confident that he could help me with his procedure. He treated me with kindness, friendliness, competency and concern for my comfort during the treatment. He explained clearly with each step of the treatment as to where and why of each area he treated. I left feeling much better and hope that it will hold until my next visit. I am being extra cautious with my posture to hold the treatment and make it last. I enjoyed my visit and look forward to the next one. Thanks to a caring experienced chiropractor, Dr. Mike!

Highly skilled chiropractic care..
Dr. Toyooka is an amazing practitioner. He actually fixed a slipped disc in my back about two years ago and haven't had a problem since. Now I just see him as needed for all around adjustments. If you have never had the activator method its amazing, and he is the guy to go to..
- Brandy .
Dr. Piianaia is very conscientious of the patient, and really work towards healing for his patient. He has great skill! I've only seen him 3 times, I am almost back to normal! I would recommend him to my friends!

Dr. Chris and staff are absolutely amazing! You are greeted with aloha the moment you walk in the door. Front desk is very accommodating, I work in the building and was able to come in and be seen with in minutes. Doctor and staff are always helpful with the insurance info and patient forms, which can be confusing. Dr. Chris Piianaia is extremely friendly & he takes his time with all of his patients. You won't feel like you're being shooed out as soon as you are adjusted. I quickly noticed a decrease of pain in my neck, shoulders & back after my first visit. I highly recommend their services.

It's amazing how relaxed I am after an adjustment session with Dr.Toyooka!
- Johnny .
Can't wait for my next appointment!
This was my 2nd appointment with Dr. Toyooka and I have to say it was amazing. I've seen a few chiropractors in my lifetime and never have I had a 45 minute deep tissue massage to the problem areas with a masseuse before seeing the doc for an adjustment! He has a licensed massage therapist on staff and she gave one of the deepest and strongest massages I have ever had! I walked out feeling awesome.
Thank you again.
- Derek .

Dr. Christopher Piianaia
World class Chiropractor. Great approach to improve my quality of life. I have been to many different chiropractors...none can hold a candle to Dr. Piianaia.
- Max .
I hate that I moved so far away
I just went in yesterday after experiencing awful pain in my hips and spine. Within a few minutes, Dr. Toyooka had put some of my pieces back in order. Although I might have something the one treatment won't fix, the visit yesterday relieved me of a ton of pain. Thank you.
- Jenny .
It's was a pleasant experience for me. My back pain seems to disappeared instantly.
- Linh .
Fulfilled my expectations
Dr. Toyooka was very personable and I felt very comfortable. I was looking for a professional who could evaluate all of my chronic problems of my knee, hips and lower back. I have always felt that some of my current problems stemmed from my earlier problems with my knee created somewhat of a domino affect on other parts of my body.
This was my second visit to a chiropractor and I was pleased with Dr. Toyooka's work. I look forward to my next visit as my first visit showed improvement.
- Kathleen .
Another visit to Dr. Chris
This is a great place for Chiropractic care as well as a massage. I have been coming to this place since April and it is a great place to be. Friendly staff, great care and assistance in any matters that need to be addressed.
- Chris .
Love Dr. Chris! I really feel that he takes time with me(more than less than 5 minutes experiences with other chiros). And I don't have lower back pain anymore!!!!!
- Helen .
I feel a lot better after this visit. The doctor was very sensitive to my needs and explained carefully the treatment I 'll need.and what were some of my problems that needed attention.
He was very professional and well aware of peoples physical problems..
I am really grateful to my friends who recommended his service.
Thank you Doc.

Always Hits the Spot
Dr. Toyooka has the ability to zero in on the problem and alleviate the pain. He is genuinely concerned about his patients and always makes himself available should they need him.
- Pamela .
Best care anywhere :)
My experiences with Dr. Toyooka have always been consistently outstanding! Communication is always effective as he employs texts and phone calls readily. He is always polite, professional and personable. He takes the necessary time and explains what he is doing and why. I feel that his skill set is very strong. The office staff was also efficient and polite. Mahalo!
- Greg .
I had sciatic for almost a year. After trying other chiropractors, massages and acupuncture treatments, Dr Toyooka was able to bring me relief in about 3 weeks. The massage therapists also found knots in shoulders I did not know I had. Their scheduling is very flexible and I never have a problem getting appointments. I recommend this office for your needs.
