First call they were able to see me within the hour. I went in with intense pain and left nearly pain free! Dr. B and Alexandra (office manager) are both so kind, inviting and professional. The clinic is very comforting and relaxed. I'm so glad I listened to the many recommendations I received to visit this office. I found my new home for chiropractic care. * 5 GOLD STARS *
-Kayleen K. on Facebook
I feel like a new person... Or better yet, like my old person! I feel so much better after my alignment and you can tell Dr.B really cares about people. The reception is warm and friendly. I felt very comfortable and I can't find words to tell you how much better I felt once I left. Can't wait to go back!

I’m so glad Dr. Baiata has set up in Atlantic Beach upon his return to Florida. My husband and I found him through a referral from our gym, and we have been regular patients since. My husband had sports hernia surgery after soccer injuries in Dec 2011. It took seven months of rehab for him to get comfortable being athletic again. He continued to experience tightness and soreness in the groin area from workouts, but working with Dr. Baiata has made a huge difference in the way he can move, and his confidence as an athlete.I am nearly full term with my pregnancy and have been totally comfortable being treated by Dr. Baiata since the second trimester. I started with treatment every four weeks and most recently have been back every two weeks, or when I feel soreness return to my mid and lower back. The relief is nearly instant and has made my first pregnancy much easier than I anticipated given my history of back issues. I highly recommend him as a Chiropractor who treats the whole body, not just one ailment.As a side note, the office is warmly decorated with art by his talented wife, Caitlin, and they are big supporters of Atlantic Beach’s monthly artwalks and other community events. The Beaches is lucky to have them!

I have been very pleased with Dr. Baiata and the treatment I have received. He is helping me recover from a torn muscle injury and the treatment is working very well. I have since referred my wife and she has been happy also. I would recommend Surfside chiropractic to anyone.

Surfside Chiropractic is the miracle we were looking for! My boyfriend and I have always known the benefits of chiropractic medicine. But, when we moved to The Beaches a few years ago from Atlanta, we were hesitant in finding a new doctor. This changed when my boyfriend suffered a traumatic injury to his neck from a surfing accident. He was in constant pain from his neck to his fingertips; experiencing constant numbness and pain, unable to sleep, unable to have any range of motion past a few inches. AFTER SEVERAL TRIPS TO THE MAYO CLINIC THE ONLY THING THAT WAS "ADDRESSED" WAS HIS INSURANCE! He was told his options were "pain medication regime and/or surgery". He chose neither and continued to suffer. I could no longer stand to see such a strong man suffer so I "googled" chiropractors at the beaches and made an appointment with Surfside. AFTER THE 1ST APPOINTMENT HIS PAIN WAS RELIEVED! After 4 appointments his pain was GONE! (The miracle!). He was not told to come back every week (like a lot of chiropractors will do), he was told to come back when he felt he needed an adjustment. Dr. Baiata was not looking for "weekly payments", he proved his concern was his patient! I suffered a very traumatic injury to my back 10 years ago. Chiropractic medicine allowed me to have the option of NOT being constantly medicated for pain or an invasive surgical procedure. But, like my boyfriend, upon moving to the Beaches, I was hesitant in finding a new doctor. I made my appointment with Surfside immediately after my boyfriends first appointment. I was dreading getting out of bed every morning due to the pain. I was coming up with new "ways to roll out" without bringing tears to my eyes. I couldn't sit, walk, run, lift, bend for any amount of time. I walked stooped and with a limp. I couldn't lift my grandson without the fear of "being bedridden for a few days". Life was not fun! Again, I felt immediate relief the first adjustment. I continue to have a standing weekly appointment which allows me to live the active life I choose! I wake up in the morning without a second thought to my back, because the pain is not there to remind me every waking moment! Dr. Baiata was given the Gift of Healing, not just a piece of paper that says "he took the class". His bedside manner is the best. His concern for his patients is genuine! He is our miracle that released us from pain and allows us to live a full, active and healthy lifestyle! Our recommendation? DO YOUR BODY A FAVOR, MAKE AN APPOINTMENT NOW!

Dr Baiata (or Dr. Nick as we call him) is helping my elderly husband and me continue our active life style and keeping our spines healthy. We are so lucky to have found this dedicated talented chiropractor right near us where we can see him regularly and in an emergency.
-Darby J. in Fleet Landing, Atlantic Beach, FL
While visiting Jacksonville Beach, I had the good fortune to receive an adjustment for lower back stiffness, probably age-related, from Dr. Baiata. He carefully examined my back and explained why my back was not as flexible as it could be and then proceeded to make a series of adjustments over several visits. I wasn't expecting miracles but was just delighted with the results. It has been a long time since my back has felt as flexible and trouble-free. I may not be surfing anytime soon, but I am looking forward to skiing and golf. Thank you Doctor!
-Hank F. in Jacksonville Beach, FL on Google+
First let me say, I went here as a last resort to Ortho. I have used a Chiro or two in the past and felt they were just looking to set the next appt. NOT HERE! I went to Dr. Baiata with two major complaints, a shoulder that was popping and causing pain, and a knee issue that was affecting me throughout my military, then my police career. I fly every day now and my knee was excrusciating. After one visit to the doc my shoulder stopped popping, after 2 visits my knee literally feels like new…ortho was talking surgery and not promising anything, this Dr promised nothing and now I dont feel like I will need surgery! I can’t thank him enough. Can’t remember the last time I went to a doctor and thought he actually healed something.
- Ivan W. in Atlantic Beach, FL from Yelp!
Great. They were able to help my back pain and find issue that my previous chiropractor was not able to. Dr. Baiata is very nice and easy to talk to. It was a great experience.
- Addie M. in Atlantic Beach, FL from Yelp!
I HIGHLY recommend Dr Baiata! What a gifted and compassionate healer. I just know this is going to be a key component of my remedy to migraines and chronic pain from disk bulges. Sincere thanks, Diane
ALL Navy families should come here as part of their proactive health regime (before they feel bad like I do!)
You and your wife are a gift to Jacksonville!
- Diane P. in Jacksonville, FL from Yelp!
Dr. Baiata is an expert in his profession. He knows how to pinpoint different areas of the body.Additionally, he has the highest integrity and honesty. I highly recommend him.
-Susan P. in Atlantic Beach, Fl from Yelp!
Regular visits to Surfside made all the difference in my second pregnancy/delivery. Dr. Baiata was able to minimized pain in my neck and back, especially in the third trimester. Keeping my spine and hips in alignment really helped with sciatica pain and in the mental and physical aspects of labor and delivery. I actually had more confidence going into a water birth feeling everything was aligned and ready for baby’s smooth entry into the world. Labor lasted a fourth of the time of my first! I can’t thank you enough.

I came to Dr. Baiata barely able to walk I was in so much pain. I have a herniated L4 and L5 from a college athletic injury and have since tweaked my back every now and then causing me stiffness and pain. However, this particular instance, whatever I did left me in agony and unable to go to work, unable to sleep and barely able to put one foot in front of the other. I called Surfside as it was about 5 blocks from my house and knew I would be able to manage the short drive. When I walked in, Dr. Baiata saw the pain I was in and immediately took me back. I was practically in tears and he looked at me with confidence, made me very comfortable and told me he would get me better in no time. I could only go through a couple adjustments at first because the slightest movement caused shooting pains in my back, hips and legs, but even after one session I was given some relief. After a few short visits, it was incredible how much better I was and pain free. I was even able to play in an alumni lacrosse game about a week later. Every time I go in I am greeted by the receptionist (I feel awful I can’t remember her name) who is so sweet and helpful. It is an awesome staff and great atmosphere. I’m so lucky to have found such a great chiropractor that is right down the street from my house. I would give him more stars but Google only allows 5! Thanks for everything Dr. B!!!!
-J.H. in Neptune Beach, FL from Google+
Dr. Baiata is hands down the best chiropractor I’ve been to. I have recommended countless friends to him and all were happy with his treatment. I sent a pregnant friend to him and he cured her headaches in one visit. I saw him regularly for two years and always found relief for my neck, back and tmj issues. Highly recommend him.
-Lisa E. from Yelp!
Dr. Nick did magic for my back and knees after they were messed up from the military. Highly recommended.
-Christian F. in Atlantic Beach, FL from Yelp!
I can sum up my reasons for going to Dr. Baiata in two words: pain free.I am an editor who sits hunched over a computer 8+ hours a day. The consequences: neck, back and hand pain. I couldn’t turn my head without pain; plus, I had injured a nerve in my arm and pain radiated down to my hand. I was terrified and promptly enlisted all conventional remedies: a medical doctor, massage therapy, endless Advil. None, I later realized, addressed the underlying issue: I need to be adjusted and put back in alignment.Desperate for relief, I tried chiropractic. Within one session, my arm and hand pain were history. Within two sessions, my neck pain was gone. More telling, I had greater mobility in my neck! To sustain my well-being, I continued to see Dr. Baiata once or twice a month. And I recommended him to stressed colleagues, who were equally thrilled with their results. No drugs, no invasive procedures. We not only felt better physically, we felt cared for emotionally.It’s been 6 years since that first visit. I’ve changed my gynecologist, internist and eye doctor. But I have been loyal to Dr. Baiata: He has a gift for healing, a deep knowledge of anatomy, fitness and nutrition, and a genuine desire to make his patients better. He cares about the total person: heart, mind and body. How many doctors call at night to make sure you’re OK? He does.I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get well and stay well. He is that rarest of practitioners: He puts patients first.
There are 3 people in this world who I know can heal with the simple touch of their hands: Jesus, Mr. Miyagi, and Dr. Baiata.According to some group known as “Biblical Scholars,” Jesus healed a crippled hand with his touch (Matthew 12:9-14). However the Scriptures say it was a “withered hand,” which to me could indicate a simple hydration issue that Jesus might have remedied with a moisturizing cream. It’s hard to verify since he’s been on hiatus for 2,000+ years due to remodeling or something.Mr. Miyagi, on the flip side, has well-documented video evidence of his magic hands. It’s too bad he used his power for evil, helping Daniel Larusso steal girlfriends, wear shower curtains, and go on dates to putt-putt golf places in mom’s station wagon, expecting to get laid. Everyone is upset that the Cobra Kai wants to sweep his leg, but nobody complains when he kicks their main guy in the face, Crane style. All of this was made possible thanks to Miyagi being seduced by the dark side.Dr. Baiata, in the meantime, is an awesome healer. I’ve been to 4 different Chiropractors and they usually first put you in a room and strap you to a roller table or zap you with electrodes. Dr. Baiata, rather, talks to you about your issues and quickly determines – through visual and manual means – what’s out of whack. His style is simple, fast and I almost want to say gentle, but also more precise.
If you have any type of neuromusculoskeletal issues, you’ll find him in [Atlantic Beach]. The other two? I’m not so sure.
-J.E. from Yelp!
This was a great experience. I was traveling for work and experiencing a lot of lower back pain. I actually found Surfside on Yelp. Dr. Baiata was able to fit me in the same day that I called and then again two days later. He adjusted me but also took time to talk about my back issues. I was in basically no pain by the end of the week and two weeks later, I am pain free. I can’t recommend Surfside enough.
-D.H. from Yelp!
I first saw Dr. Nick Baiata in February of 2010. I was in so much pain from my neck down to my shoulders and down my right arm. I couldn’t move my head at times either forward or back or left or right. I was waking up throughout the night with excruciating pain because I would shift or roll over and move the muscles in my neck. This pain at this level had been going on for months on and off and at the time I started seeing Dr. B, it was almost continuous for about three weeks. The pain was interfering with my work, which also contributes to my condition. I’m a jewelry designer/maker and I do a lot of hammering and filing and sawing. I use all sorts of manual tools, so I was facing giving up my chosen career if I did not get help.
Dr. B is very intuitive and very different from other chiropractors I had been to. While others do adjustments, Dr. Baiata also does some very specific muscle work and was always able to sense just where I was “out.”
Because my condition had been going on for so long, years really, it took about 6 months of regular adjustments to feel pain free for more than a few days at a time. After about 9 months I was virtually pain free. I was going about once a month for maintenance when Dr. Baiata left for Florida. Miss him sorely, no pun intended!
-Angela C. from Yelp!
Dr. Nick Baiata is a whole body healer. I recommend him without reservation.
My girlfriend and I were patients of Dr. Nick Baiata in NYC. WE MISS HIM SO MUCH. hands down he is the best chiropractor I have ever experienced. My GF was having serious back pain. we tried everything. even a steroid shot in her spine. all these things were temporary solutions. I found Dr. Baiata on yelp in new york and made an appointment on a whim. after about 6 months of appointments my GFs back pain had vanished. she was like a brand new woman. to this day shes has zero back pain.
I do mauy thai boxing and I'm hurting myself all the time because I'm not very good at it. I would go see Dr. Baiata once a month and he would always straighten out my back and help me with some leg pain. i was having some trouble with my wrist from an old injury and he even fixed that!
Dr. Nick Baiata is a top notch chiropractor and cannot recommend him enough. Florida is lucky to have him.
-C.S from Yelp!
When I suddenly started having lower back pain for the first time in my life, I had no idea where to go. I asked a close friend for a recommendation and she insisted I go to Dr. Baiata. When I realized that he didn’t accept insurance, I went against my better judgment and decided to try a nearby chiro in my network first. Bad idea! I had the worst, most uncomfortable experience ever and ended up in even more pain. After that, I decided it was time to go see Dr. Baiata. The first session included a very thorough evaluation and an adjustment. Dr. B was able to pinpoint exactly what was causing my pain and adjust me accordingly. He suggested two more sessions, but did not pressure me into coming back. Within 24 hours of the first session, my back pain was gone. I went back for two more adjustments, as suggested, and the pain has not been back.I was extremely impressed with Dr. Baiata. He is a caring and passionate doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients and answer any questions they may have. I will definitely be sending my friends and family his way.

Hadn’t been to a chiropractor in over 10 years, but slept funny and woke up in pain. 5 days later things had progressed so that my entire left shoulder and neck was totally in spasm with 3 ribs out of joint – I couldn’t move without crying. Went to a DO and a PT who were very nice but didn’t still put things back into place, on muscle relaxants and pain meds and was STILL in agony. Bit the bullet and I decided to try and find a new chiropractor.Dr. Baiata basically the first person I was able to reach, and I am really glad he was. He was terrific. Good manner, great technique, and I walked out with my muscles sore from 5 days of spasm but the intense wrenching pain was GONE. The difference is truly night and day. AND he didn’t try and sign me up for more sessions – just said if I needed him again, I knew where to find him. I am incredibly grateful.

I just want to thank Dr. Baiata for doing a great job on my back last week. I hurt my back pretty bad and Dr. Baiata saw me right away and helped tremendously. I don’t know what I would have done without him.
I had tried physical therapy, expensive orthopedists, massage — and was still in pain. Finally, I got relief with Dr. Baiata. He is effective, compassionate and takes time to understand his patient’s concerns. His knowledge is considerable, and I trust his judgment. I feel in good hands! Now, I get a monthly checkup to stay limber.

My girlfriend and I have been going to see Dr. Baiata weekly since last February, when we were rear-ended at a stoplight. From the very first appt. I knew Dr. Baiata was a gem. He took xrays of our necks and and explained the injury to us in clear and practical terms. He is always forthcoming about what treatments are necessary and why they work.But really the reason to go see Dr. Baiata is the adjustments are precise and effective. My girlfriend and I have gone from not being able to move our necks at all to having occasional discomfort to now having full mobility. Along with my neck being healed my posture has improved and I haven’t gotten sick with a cold for months and months.Even though the car insurance is stopping our visits I plan to go see Dr. Baiata every month or so just for upkeep. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is very friendly, professional, caring and knowledgeable. I recently recommended a friend to him and she has been beyond happy with the care he provides.

Dr. Baiata is a great chiropractor and an amazing healer. I went to see Dr. Baiata after I hurt my neck doing a headstand in a yoga class and the instructor recommended that I see a chiropractor, Dr. Baiata. He possess a calming and relaxing energy and a warm touch as well as an in depth understanding of the body. Dr. Baiata explained everything to me and left me feeling informed and empowered. I felt very comfortable with him and left feeling so much better.
- sophiaNYCia at Citysearch
I’ve never been to a chiropractor before giving Dr. Baiata a shot based on his reviews online. I went to him quiet skeptical, but I needed to give chiropractic a shot because nothing else has worked for me. Dr. Baiata was able to clearly explain to me what was going on with my back in such a way that made complete sense. Then he treated my back with a chiropractic adjustment, which was what I have been needing all along.I cannot compare Dr. Baiata to other chiropractors because he is the only one I have ever been to, but I found him to be a very honest and gentle person who genuinely cares. Even though I don’t have much experience with doctors of chiropractic, he is the best doctor I have ever been to.

Last year, I found myself in excruciating pain from a chronic L4-L5 back issue. I was completely immobilized and could not move an inch without going into full spasm. I had seen Dr. Baiata several times and he had helped me greatly – I wanted to go to him, but couldn’t begin to stand up, let alone make a trip on the Subway. Dr. Baiata made a house call – you heard me, a HOUSE CALL in this day and age – gently assuring me that things would get better, working slowly and deliberately to ease my pain. And then, once I was mobile again, I was able to make marked improvement quickly. Throughout all of it, “Dr. Nick” remained steadfast, supportive and expert. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
- DAJ1970 at Citysearch
I sought out Dr. Nick for an excrutiating neck pain, and physcial trauma retention from 9/11. As a result I had multitude muscular and nerve problems and was resigned to a life of Pain. Seeing Dr. Nick once a week completely removed all the problems over a period of six months, and eventually resulted in the discovery of one small injury. During the time I was seeing him I had a server foot and ankle sprain which he also treated removing the swelling and fluid from my foot and knees. I have my health back and my life. The man is a genuis of medicine and a true Healer.- rebelwithacause at Citysearch
I started using Dr. Baiata’s services for a pinch nerve in my back. I don’t know much about anatomy. but just a few weeks later, it was gone. But a year latter I still see him every week, just because it feels great and my posture has improved a 100% .Not to mention he is the most assertive at pinpointing my problem areas and treating them on the spot every time. I highly recommend Dr. Baiata’s services instead of any spa treatment. This is the best pampering.
Dr. Baiata is caring, compassionate and effective. After one treatment my pain was alleviated. He thoroughly explained my treatment so that I had a comfort level with him. I came in a skeptic and left a believer. I am deeply impressed by his passion for his profession. I recommend him with absolute confidence.
- lillyann at Citysearch
Dr. Baita is amazing. He’s able to pinpoint a problem with minimal direction and fix it with minimal manipulation. After just one session, you already feel better and it keeps getting better every session after. He’s accomodating, courteous and does his best to make you comfortable whether you’re a celebrity or a friend. The entire experience is always a positive one. Thank you Dr. Nick!

After a car accident I had 3 years ago I suffered 6 herniated disk no medications or physical therapy would alleviate the pain I had making myself believe that I would be living this way for the rest of my life, after meeting Dr. Baiata, he proved me wrong he assured me that I will be living the normal life I had, he is a professional and talented doctor who cares deeply about his patients well being and physical ailments, I’m back on my feet now and pain free all because of him, I HIGHLY recommend him.Thank you so much Dr. Baiata.
In the past, I have been reluctant to go to chiropractors. Unfortunately, my severe sciatica left me with only one option, surgery, which I refused to have. After being referred to Dr. Baiata by a friend, I realized that he was a true healer. His outstanding techiques and professional demeanor was perfect. My sciatica and back pain disappeared completely, and I am forever grateful.- cofiland at Citysearch
Dr Baiata treated me for a long standing neck injury which caused pain and limited my range of motion. After several months of treatment I have full range of motion restored and little or no pain. I can work out again and my posture has improved. He administers preventative Muscular / Skeletal work on my hand and wrist to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome and other maintenance treatments, all of which have add to my overall sense of health and well being. I feel that I have benefited greatly from Dr Baiata’s help. He has excellent technique, is easy to be around,is very concerned with your comfort level and is easy to communicate with. If you are having problems or are interested in preventative chiropractic care I strongly recommend you call Dr Baiata.
- popsiclestick at Citysearch
Dr. Baiata is amazing at what he does. I have had many sports related injuries and Dr. Baiata has been instrumental in my most recent healing process. Without him, I would not be able to continue all the sports that I do! Also, he is very professional and will take the time to answer all of your questions. I have been most impressed with his deep knowledge and obvious passion for his profession. Until recently, I had never been to a chiropractor and was skeptical and nervous at my first appointment . Not only did Dr. Baiata take the time to explain everything that he was doing and why, he also sensitive to fact that I was afraid he would hurt me, Rather than being offended that I didn’t trust him yet, he took a very professional stance, calmed my nerves and did a fantastic job fixing my back. I am still shocked by how effective his treatment has been in comparison to my other doctor who just prescribed bedrest and pain killers.
- goldbondnia at Citysearch
I started getting chiropractor care @ 3 months ago due to scoliosis that was causing me lower back pain, shoulder, arm and knee pain, I couldn’t walk without pain but after the very first visit to Dr. Baiata I noticed that the pain was gone and I could walk and exercise pain free again, so I continue getting treatment on a weekly basis since he’s making me & my body feel as good as new. I highly recommend Dr. Baiata because he’s a magnificent chiropractor as well as a sincere, kind and caring person.
- bedriomo at Citysearch
This doctor is incredible, I've have had lower back problems for years. Done many Doctors, pain killers and physical therapy . But nothing seemed to help for long. I've been seeing Dr. Baiata for over three months and there's been a noticeable difference. And my back hasn't acted up, I highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. B!
