Dont Pre-Pay With Dr. Kevin Kerchansky (scam)
DON'T PREPAY for massage, "rehab" or chiropractic treatments with Dr.
Kevin Kerchansky, DC, chiropractor at Triad Pain Management Clinic in
Tempe, AZ. You may never get the treatments that you pay for! Dr.
Kevin Kerchansky ripped off Columbus, Ohio residents while he owned
Grandview Ave Physical Therapy.
Not only did Dr. Kevin Kerchansky take the money for pre-paid visits and
never give the treatments, but when he did give the treatments, the
services were provivded by non-licensed physical therapists. Yes,
that's right, he offered "physical therapy" but massage techs, personal
trainers, and other non qualified staff members rendered the treatments
that was supposed to be done by PT's. Essentially, MD's and other
health care professionals were referring their patients to Grandview Ave
Physical Therapy but THERE WERE NO PHYSICAL THERAPISTS THERE!!!

Did you pay Dr. Kevin Kerchansky's business, Grandview Ave Physical
Therapy for prepaid treatments and NOT receive those treatments that you
paid for? We located Dr. Kevin Kerchansky, DC, a chiropractor in
Arizona who owned/owns this place. Perhaps you can get your money back
from Dr. Kevin Kerchansky as he has been located working for Triad Pain
Management Clinic, 4515 S. McClintock Dr., Suite 120, Tempe, AZ 85282,
(480) 413-0586 Tel, and the fax # is (480) 730-0487. Its bulls**** that
he took the money and headed West into the sunset. There is currently
an investigation by the Ohio Attorney General into the business of Dr.
Kevin Kerchansky and Grandview Ave Physical Therapy.

Practicing outside of your scope of practice is illegal and can get your
license revoked. I interviewed there as a newly licensed LMT and trust
me, I remember the law portion of my state board exam well enough to
know this. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they got caught and shut
down. I'm wondering what has come of the licenses of the LMTs who

I used to go here for deep tissue massage so can't speak to any of the
"former" services. The staff was always great as were the massages...
they had that part right! Unfortunately I showed up for my 4:30
appointment on 10/17/12 to find the door locked and the lights out. At
first I thought maybe they had something happen and had to close for the
day until I looked at the medical records rack to see all the files
were gone... leading me to believe either they moved and I missed it or
they were closed. The phone still worked and there was no call to inform
me that they had moved, or closed for the day. So I went to their
website, which I would never do prior to the appointment to find this:
Dr. Kevin Kerchansky stole money from patients and then directed
his staff this write this letter;

It stinks not only because they provided great deep tissue massage and
now I have to find a new place BUT even more so in the fact they I had
paid in advance for 4 massages that I will never receive and they have
my money. Bummed!

I would prefer to have a licensed physical therapist see me for
medically recommended physical therapy, not an athletic trainer, college
student or massage therapist. If you are referred for physical
therapy, find a place with licensed PTs (Physical Therapists, not
personal trainers) on staff that provide the treatment.

Same experience as John L's review from 2 days ago. Showed up for my
3pm appointment to find the door locked and it dark inside (office
supposedly open 2-6 on Wednesdays). A Tim Horton's cup on the counter
made me think maybe someone had to step away and locked the door for
security for a hot second. Waited around for 15 minutes and nothing
changed. A second patron approached and tried to open and said they
also had a massage appointment. Never heard anything from them and the
phone went to answering machine with no mention of anything different.
Website also appears to be down now, what is going on?
Is Dr. Kevin Kerchansky a doctor you really want to see, or, refer to?
I mean, he rips off all these people in Ohio and then sets up shop in
AZ and may do it again? There is an ongoing investigation by the Ohio
Attorney General into the business practices of Dr. Kevin Kerchansky.
