Todd Iacovelli | Professional Runner , All-American, Hawaii State Record Holder, 8-time Hawaii State Champion

"I came to IMUA after more than three years of struggling with lower leg pain.  The numerous doctors that I had been to in the past had not been able to determine the source of my pain and even recommended that I stop running.  Dr. Ignacio was a breath of fresh air, as her knowledge and positivity combined to help me understand that it was still possible for me to run pain-free.  She and Dr. Gesik developed a plan that looked in-depth at everything from my biomechanics to my nutrition.  As a direct result of their efforts, I was able to get healthy and set a personal best, for the first time since 2009.  Not only will I continue to go and see them, I have recommended the team at IMUA to my family and to athletes I coach. Their intelligence, attitude, and genuine spirit of care is inspiring."

Kainoa McGee | Professional Bodyboarder and Waterman

"The first time that I was treated I could barely walk upright or breath without a sharp piercing pain throughout my lower back.  I felt a little twinge in my lower back while surfing earlier that morning and it quickly progressed within 10 short minutes to the point of major pain. I called Dr. Gesik to see if I could get treated as soon as possible. As soon as she saw me she could tell that I was in a bad way.  She started at the root of the problem and not the site of the pain and got me feeling so much better that I went out and did a SUP lesson for her and her family, literally, right after my treatment.  Without her I would've been laid up in bed for at least a week.  Much mahalo's for taking such good care of me."
 

Kanani Danielson | Professional/Former UH Volleyball Player, All-American

"Dr. Ignacio is an amazing orthopedic doctor.  I go to her anytime I need help or better knowledge on problems with my muscle or bone function.  I trust her a 100% and love the way she regardless of whether the information is good or bad, presents my treatment options to me.  She explains everything in an easy to comprehend way showing me via real images where the problem is.  Once she explains, I better understand if I need surgery or what I can do to make it better.  I now play professional volleyball and plan to only go to her for help in the future.  Dr. Ignacio is very talented and I recommend her to anyone in need of assistance."

Spencer Skipper | Professional Body Boarder, Manta Rider

"After my shoulder injury, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to meet the physical demands my profession requires, but after being treated by Dr. Gesik, I was back in action, fully functioning, and stronger than I was before the injury. Dr. Gesik's osteopathic techniques and level of care are by far the best I have ever experienced. Mahalo Dr. Gesik!!"
