Dr. James Aungst graduated in 1975 with honors from Palmer Chiropractic College located in Davenport, IA. After having practiced in several prominent clinics in Iowa and Washington, he relocated to Portland in 1978 where he later established a multi-doctor facility on Portland's east side in 1980. In 1997, he was recruited to be the clinic director of a multi-disciplinary injury rehab facility that housed the coordinated efforts of medical, chiropractic, physical therapy, occupational therapy and acupuncture procedures. In 1999, Dr. Aungst moved his practice to Portland's west side, where he now specializes in automobile, work, personal and sports related injuries, chronic and resistive conditions, allergy relief and clinical nutrition.
Point of Interest: The word "doctor" does not mean healer. It comes from the Latin word docere meaning "teacher" or "to teach". We strive to not only find and correct a person's health problems, but to educate and enlighten people so that they can better take care of themselves and do not encounter similar problems in the future.
Anna is a valued asset in our clinic. She is our Office Manager, Compliance Officer and helps at reception and with therapies. She has worked as a nursing assistant and physical therapy assistant and speaks 3 languages. She became a Certified Nutritional Therapist in June 2003.
Well Dr. Aungst is now AKA the God of the westside. He has changed my life. I was in a car wreck and could barely walk when I first say him. He has gotten me all straightened out. Now he is curing me of my allergies. Can you believe he can make your allergy's go away? Well it’s true.
Definitely worth the commute. He also understands we commute he has taken us early. Took us in without appointments. He has also allowed us to come in late when we forgot our appointments. I highly recommend dr.Angst to anybody from McMinnville to Portland.
Dr. Aungst is an outstanding healer. My vitality and quality of life has greatly improved since I first began seeing Dr. Aungst. He has helped heal both acute and chronic problems I have had. I would highly recommend him for his expertise and very reasonable prices.
I left feeling 20 years younger with a list of strength exercises to do. Even if I have to go back, prices are very reasonable and I know their goal on to make sure I don’t have to come back. Thank you for making me a believer in chiropractic care again!
Dr. Aungst and Anna are really sweet, attentive and knowledgeable, what a wonderful team they make! I was in pieces when I started going, my whole body hurt so much I needed to go weekly. Now I go just once a month to get adjusted!
Highly professional, prompt EXCELLENT care. I came into Westside Chiropractic in total agony and left with a beaming smile! I’ve been to many chiropractic centers and Dr. Aungst was by far the best I’ve seen! His office and waiting area is warm and comfortable, his staff is friendly and efficient! I highly recommend Westside Chiropractic!
