I’ve known Dr. Alan professionally for several years. He goes above and beyond in helping his patients not only get out of pain, but obtain optimal health and wellness without drugs and surgery. If anybody is looking for a chiropractor in the Grand Rapids area, I highly recommend you going to Dr. Alan and Health First Chiropractic Clinic.. you will be glad you did!

Staff is wonderful!! VERY helpful. I’ve been coming here for over 8 years and I no longer get migraines, no more tmj and have fewer back & neck problems. Doc is great & staff is a true joy to work with. I go there several times a week because of major back, neck and many other accident related issues. I’ve had massages and always enjoyed every one of them……only problem is….they all came to an end (until the next one). They were so good I didn’t want them to end!


Doc is soooooo knowledgeable and has made me more enlightened on insusrance & governmental issues that I would not have known if not for him. Doc is fantastic as a chiropractor and he and the staff are like family. They all put up with my crazy sense of humor, although the newest one has been forced to learn about me the hard way.


I strongly urge anyone & everyone to see the best chiropractor Grand Rapids has to offer. It may take awhile to get relief from your pain but he WILL help you. Just remember to be PATIENT since you are the PATIENT & HE is a VERY knowledgeable doctor.

Dr. Szagesh is a very kind, caring, and concerned person. His cheerfulness is inspiring. I’ve always had very good experiences with chiropractic care. I recommend highly.

Amazing! I am thankful for the comfort level this office gave me. I have been afraid to visit a chiropractor now I’m disappointed that I wasted 5 years in pain!

I ve never felt better. I had an excruciating pain in my upper back and couldn t take it any more. I visited Health First to see if there was some relief. To my total disbelief I was completely cured of my ailment in my upper back and I m able to breathe without the lingering pain. As an added bonus, the doctor solved some issues in my lower back and I no longer limp! It s incredible! I would highly recommend Health First to anyone. Do yourself a favor and pay them a visit. You ll be glad you did!

I would suggest Dr. Szagesh to anyone! He is an amazing chiropractor. I have had back pain and issues for years and no one has been able to help me in any way possible. Not only did he relieve my pain he helped find a treatment plan that has virtually made every bit of pain disappear.


I am sending my mother and sister to him and I am also taking my daughter now. One month ago my back was out of place, I could not move or sit or stand. I was in tears when I went into his office. With his help and the help of his amazing staff I was able to recover and become a normal functioning person again!


There are no words to discribe his compassion and medical ability. He truly is a gifted doctor. He is not all about money either. As a struggeling single parent with no insurance I was worried about the cost. He even helped me there and made it very reasonable for me to continue my care. He is by far the best chiropractor in the Grand Rapids area.

I’ve been not only pain free but pain reliever free for over a year. I’m in the best health of my life and I love it. I’ve also seen great things in my 3 daughters health as well.

Dr. Szagesh helped me become pain free. I have been dealing with back pain for over two years, following a car accident. After nearly completing my treatment plan I can say I am pain free. I highly recommend Dr. Szagesh.

I’ve been going to Health 1st Chiropractic since 2004 (wow it’s been 8 years!!). I’ve always had a wonderful, warm, friendly experience even in my most painful times. I’ve had chronic back problems dating years back. Without Dr. Szagesh I would, quite literally, not be able to walk.


I’ve had disc, tailbone, rib, neck problems from past injuries, accidents and overworking and the doc has always known exactly what to do to get me feeling better and back on my feet and also back to work. I can’t express how grateful I am, not only to find someone who can help me get over the painful times but has been able to help me work things out financially so I can get well and not stress over choosing to get adjusted or paying a bill.


Through the years the office team has made me feel like family, even through some changing faces, that friendly atmosphere has never changed. You’re treated like a person here, not just a faceless patient with a checkbook. I can’t say enough good things about Health 1st Chiropractic and Dr. Szagesh. I highly recommend them!
