I was introduced to Dr. Ettinger in 2010 by my girlfriend, and I have been a committed patient ever since. I originally started seeing Dr Ettinger for skin tags. I struggled with skin tags for almost a year before seeing him. I kept getting them removed and they would just grow right back. Dr. Ettinger put me on an anti-virus supplement and they immediately stopped coming back. I have not had one since they left me three years ago. Dr. Ettinger is a one of a kind doc; he treats all of his patients like family and does not recommend anything that you don’t test for. I have been seeing him for chiropractic and holistic care for the past three years. I am truly in the best shape of my life and I have more energy than ever before! I have altered my diet tremendously since seeing him; I’ve lost fat and gained strength since I started following his nutritional advice and my skin has never been clearer.

I would recommend Dr. E to anyone that’s experiencing physical pain or in need of a better and healthier lifestyle. He knows more about nutrition and the way the human body functions than any doctor I have ever met. He is also one of the most positive and honest individuals I know; you will always leave his office feeling positive and full of energy. He truly is a medical detective!

Thanks for everything Dr. E!

I have been a patient of Dr Ettinger for over a year now and so happy that I found him. I sufferedd from chronic migraines searching for help with neurologist that wanted to put me on daily preventative medicine, perform harsh surgeries. I tried every medicine and treatment such as acupuncture. When I found Dr. Ettinger he knew what my problem was right off the bat and was able to treat me instantly. For the first time ever I was able to receive instant relief of my migraines and with his treatment and prevention. I can honestly say that with Dr. Ettinger’s treatment I have been cured of my long time chronic disorder!

I have been to many chiropractors throughout the years, (from Fullerton to Newport Beach) and Marcus Ettinger is by far my favorite. I have scheduled visits with him for nutrition coaching and chiropractic care–he really knows his stuff! He is very knowledgeable in all areas of his work, and patiently answers any questions too.

Most recently, I fell and bruised my tail-bone and Dr. Ettinger quickly fit me into his schedule for an adjustment. I could barely walk into his office, but he was absolutely mindful of the bruised area and still managed a great adjustment. Dr. Ettinger has definitely earned my trust!

I have been seeing Dr. Ettinger for a while ( I actually can’t recall how many years but maybe since 2012) He is awesome at adjusting me and my NECK and BACK but has also helped me with other issues  that I would had normally called my WESTERN Medicine doctor. I feel you need both sometimes but I have gone to him the last two times and he diagnosed me and got me on my way with some simple products (no antibiotics) but more holistic approach. The other thing I love about him is he doesn’t put you on all these products….I have been to others that have put me on so many products and have spend tons of money. He has you take what you need…I love his approach and he is one smart cookie and explains in terms you can understand. Thank you Dr. E, you are well loved. Thank you for your knowledge and caring nature.

Dr. Ettinger has given me my health back! After so much trial and error with many naturopaths and self diagnosing, I found relief with Dr. Ettinger. He has an amazing ability to understand what is happening to the body and how to correct it. I highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about having absolute health, vitality, and a true personal regimen.

Since I have been under the care of Dr. Ettinger, I have noticed a big health improvement where most of my chronic issues have disappeared. I’m on a once a month visit schedule and notice he does only minimal adjustments now because the cause of the chronic pains have been sourced. There was very specific nutrition support I needed, and now that I have followed his directions, I am reaping the benefits of a happier, calmer life. It’s like my life-long fight or flight issues have flown out the window. ~Thanks Doc!

Hello my name is Maria; Dr Marcus Ettinger has been treating me since March 26 2014. I’m a breast cancer survivor. Due to all the side effects from chemo my body was not good. It’s been 7 months now since I started with Dr Marcus and I can thank him enough! I’m feeling GREAT! I’m so happy that I found him, he is definitely the best!

Dr. Ettinger has been treating my daughter for over 3 months now for inflammatory bowel disease. Since May, 2011 she has been through many hospitalizations, multiple surgeries and pharmacological treatment – none of which have helped her. Dr. Ettinger has a brilliant mind and is very knowledgeable in the areas of chiropractic, chronic diseases, nutrition, diet and holistic remedies. As soon as we met him, we knew we were in good hands. He has a BIG HEART! He is genuine, sincere and caring towards my daughter and me. We just wish we had found him sooner. I am very grateful to him for his help. On a side note, he is helping me with my chronic insomnia that has plagued me for 18 years. We look forward to our appointments with him and leave feeling positive and happy every time. I cannot thank him enough for everything he has done and continues to do in our journey for wellness.

I started seeing Dr. E in 2010 for high blood sugar.  Within 3 months, my glucose level was down, along with my weight.  My energy level was up.

Since then, he has helped me with high cortisol, which contributes to pain, hot flashes, high glucose levels and many other problems.  He recommended a supplement as a blood thinner, and another for ligament health, which helped with hair loss as well.

Dr. E is a great listener.  He has a vast knowledge of body chemistry.  He has done extensive research in the field of natural remedies in place of drugs.  I always felt great after a visit with him.



I have been a patient of Dr. Marcus Ettinger for a couple of decades.  When I had growing boys I took them to see him–always with good results.  I have referred many friends and associates and family to him with total confidence.  Good health and healthy living practices are Dr. Ettinger’s passion and he is the perfect guy to get anyone on a healthy track and to repair situations that are a physical problem.  He knows people and he knows bodies.  It is a great combination and one that leads to success.  I wholeheartedly endorse him and his practice.

Dr. Ettinger is someone who is committed to helping you stay healthy, not lecturing you about all the stuff you’re not doing or should be doing.  He takes the time to listen and to explain.   It’s clear he wants to help you, and has helped me for years. I would recommend him to everyone!

Dr. Ettinger is, hands-down, the best chiropractor on this side of the Mississippi. No matter what my symptoms show when I go to see him, he always addresses the whole body. It’s very refreshing to have a doctor who treats the cause, not just puts a band aid on the symptoms. As a certified massage therapist, I am so happy to have found Dr. Ettinger. When it comes to my health, I will search far and wide for the person that pays attention to detail (which he does) and has in-depth knowledge of all things body related (he always impresses me with his ability to explain how the body works and makes me really understand what is going on). So happy that the search is over and that Dr. Ettinger is an integral part of my overall health and wellness.

Dr. Ettinger is more than just a structural chiropractor. He is a functional medicine doctor. Trained in several different techniques outside normal chiropractic. He interprets labs and has an extensive knowledge of western and eastern medicine as well as nutrition.

I have been seeing Dr. E for a long time. His adjustments are spot on; he can tell exactly where you need to be adjusted without cracking your whole back.  One time my jaw swelled up like a chipmunk, so I went to the dentist but the X-Rays turned out fine. Dr. E did a short exam and told me that I had an infection in my lymph nodes and gave me a supplement to take and within 3 days I was back to normal. What is significant about this is that the dizziness I had been experiencing also went away; I thought I was just getting old as I would drive very carefully.  Regular Dr’s would probably have cost me a lot and multiple expensive tests with no results but within minutes he literally just figured it out.  I also use to get these skin tags that after taking some supplements they started falling off on their own.  My parents and I use to call him the Witch Doctor, LOL.

Dr. Marcus Ettinger is the best chiropractor around Orange, and offers exceptional care in a holistic approach. He has helped me with my intestinal issues and given me a treatment plan that no other doctor has offered me. I highly recommend Dr. Ettinger to anyone looking for an alternative way to treat their conditions. He is extremely knowledgeable on diet and exercise, and Dr. Ettinger is always doing research and expanding his knowledge on anything you could think of.

Alisa I. 


I came to Dr. Ettinger after 1 year’s treatment with another chiropractor for a car accident. I wasn’t getting better. I also suffer from Epstein Barr, Fibromyalgia, Hypo-thyroidism, and Chronic Fatigue. Dr. Ettinger treated me with Chiropractic care, supplements, and healthy living advice. With his help, I have been able to rid myself of decades of chronic pain that had been further aggravated by the car accident. I feel decades younger than my years. I didn’t believe it was possible to feel this good ever again.  I highly recommend Dr. Marcus Ettinger, B.Sc., D.C. for your health.

He has a wonderful caring spirit and light sense of humor, too.



I had been taking ADHD medication for over 10 years and wanted to get off them. Dr Ettinger helped me do that. Between a balanced diet and exercise plan, I am pill free and feeling better than ever.

I have been coming to Dr. Marcus Ettinger for over 18 years now! I originally came to him from a recommendation from another friend who had seen him. I was suffering from terrible migraine headaches and had gone to my regular doctor and was having no luck finding any relief. At first I was hesitant to check out someone new but once I met Marcus and listened to him explain how things work in our bodies, I figured I’d give him a shot. After an adjustment, some dietary changes and added supplements, I was no longer experiencing the debilitating migraines. I then asked him about my stomach issues and he got me on track with that too. I have always been so pleased with Marcus that I trusted him 100% in helping me through my pregnancy, keeping me comfortable and having a quick, natural delivery with his adjustments and supplements. He is my go to guy with any health issues or just to keep me on track. Easy to talk too and always full of information. You can tell he has a passion for good health and want his patients to have it too!

I found Dr Ettinger, through a family member who recommended him to me.  I have been a patient of his for almost 3 years and he is AMAZING.  I have back issues, and used to have gallbladder attacks on a monthly basis.  Since he is a holistic dr as well, and I did not want surgery to remove the gallstones, I quickly went to him.  I have not had 1 attack since.  Not to mention, my back feels like new. He is very passionate about his work, and loves helping people feel their best!

I have known Dr. Marcus Ettinger for many years over that period of time he has been an expert Chiropractor for my family and I. My son and grandson have seen him over the years several times. He is always very precise with his adjustments. His knowledge of the human body and biology is exemplary. He has a unique technique that allows him to really tune into your body to find the cause of your problem. He listens carefully giving you his full attention. 

Dr. Ettinger has helped me tremendously with some recent health issues. He is extremely knowledgeable in the field of nutrition. He helps you to get what you truly need and does not load you up with things you do not need. I really don’t know what I would have done without him, he has been a lifesaver! Thank you Dr. Ettinger 🙂

He is the best support system to help you be all you can be. I had gained some weight over the years and he advised me on how to change my diet to lose the excess weight. I lost 25 lbs easily over 2 years ago and still have been able to keep those pounds off.

He is the kind of doctor that looks you in the eyes and gives you a big smile, that’s a big plus! You won’t be sorry in choosing Dr. Ettinger for you and your families health needs!

Dr. Ettinger is amazing.  I started going to him after I saw how he helped my daughter get out of pain without pain medication.  I am in my 70’s and have fibromyalgia.  He studied my body type giving me supplements that have made it possible for me to become more active.

I have never had a doctor listen and study my problem to this extent.  He is the main reason I am now more active.  When anyone asks for a referral, Dr. Ettinger is who I recommend.



I went in for a simple adjustment and got a LOT more for his time. He is into the complete person, the big picture. I’ve had 3 visits so far and cannot wait to learn and master my own wellness!

It must be my intuition that lead me to pick Advanced Healing Center among all the other ones here on Yelp. What stood out to me was the word “healing”. I had another sciatica attack today and was in desperate search for a Chiropractor and of course I had to go through the long list on Yelp. What I liked about Dr. Ettinger is his holistic approach to his treatment, he also takes time to explain what he’s doing and why, not only did he do Chiropractic adjustment but he also tested me for deficiency in minerals. I learned so much more about the root cause of the sciatica attack. I was very satisfied with my visit and I definitely feel a huge difference with just one visit, I noticed I have more energy and my back feels 90% better.

Debra A.


Dr. E has treated our entire extended family at one time or another. He not only treats the symptoms or problems, but takes the time to get to the root of the issue. I highly recommend him for ALL of you health needs. He is the BEST!!

Dana B.


Dr. Ettinger is professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. I have been seeing him for over 16 years, for back pain, fatigue and heart health concerns. His treatments are painless and extremely effective. The office is clean and the atmosphere relaxing.  I found Advanced Healing Center to be a very positive experience overall.

Ed F.


Dr. Ettinger has been my chiropractor for over 20 years.  He has also been adjusting my sons since they were babies.  He is very knowledgeable in holistic medicine and nutrition.  At one point I developed horrible neck and upper back pain on my left side which he figured out was due to a root canal done incorrectly.  I referred one good friend whose MD gave no hope for her condition in which Dr. Ettinger handled in about six months, another example of what a great Doc he is.  I look forward to my appointments knowing I’ll come out feeling renewed.

Ari P.


Best chiropractic doc around….extremely knowledgeable. Doc Ettinger is excellent when it comes to his adjustments.
