Verified Patient Reviews
This is the best chiropractic practice I have ever visited, and it’s such pleasure every single time! They are always so nice when greeting you, and there is very little wait time. Unlike other chiropractors I’ve visited, they take their time with you and really cater to what your body needs. Your first visit is comprehensive—where they really try to figure out what you need and how to treat you. They also start each visit with heating pads to warm you up before your adjustment. Dr. Rutambhar is absolutely wonderful. He begins with some deep tissue massage and then does your adjustment. Honestly the best chiropractor and overall practice I’ve ever visited!
Dr Patel seems very knowledgeable, and will walk you through great explanations of the chiropractic field. All in a very polite and courteous manner. Now, he charges twice what a good Beverly Hills doctor charges (your co-pay will be high), maxes out the number of sessions he "recommends" for you, and spend less than 5 minutes with you per session, being busy with other patients. At the end of the day, your back still hurts, as he did not do much besides explaining you need to see him 3 times a week for the next 2 months.
Very attentive doctor and answered a lot of my questions. Definitely recommend
Super comprehensive. I found my new Chiropractor!
Dr Patel was thoughtful about his approach and spent time to learn about why I was in his office. He offer a diagnosis and solution to help my pain. I am due to go back the very next day.
Dr. Rudy is the best!!! He was an absolute godsend following my car accident, and I knew I'd be in great hands after my very first visit to his office.
Dr Rudy always help me to feel better, he always know what is wrong without me telling him.
Dr Patel is great he always help me a lot
Dr patel has been my chiropractor fir almost a year and his treatments have made a profound improvement in my health. I recommend him to everyone I care about.
Dr. Patel is amazing!!! Highly recommend! He warmed my back with a weighted heating pad and then did some pressure massage before my adjustment. I've never felt better after an adjustment! I needed this so much. I slept like a baby for the first time in months!
Wonderful setting, quick, easy and comfortable. I feel AMAZING too by the way.
I found my new chiropractor! It only took two years... Dr. Patel is amazing. I walked out of the office after a thorough examination and treatment, and actually able to move my neck and head after several days of pain over the weekend. Having seen several chiropractors over the years, I have had a range of experience. I'm so glad I found Dr. Patel.
Rudy is the man, and so is Edward. My back's pretty messed up, but after only three visits, I can feel it improving. I've been to a few chiropractors, and Rudy's the best.
Rudy Patel is very approachable-he listens well and is friendly & straightforward. He works with ease and knows what he's doing. I've visited him a few times and I've always had the pain relief I so needed! Staff is nice and the whole place has a relaxed atmosphere. Always parking available.
Very informative and transparent in every diagnosis. Thanks Ed and Dr. Patel!
Rudy is a great chiropractor! Great bedside manner, firm with his adjustments, I leave feeling better every time.
He is great!
Dr Patel is a great doctor. The office is a bit tired looking but the care is excellent!
I have had rower back pain for months. After Dr Patel's treatment yesterday, the first time in long time I slept without pain at the night. Thank you.
I have always received excellent care from Dr. Rudy. I have tried other chiropractors who are closer to me, but I have returned to him because of his healing skill and gentle manner.
I am very pleased with my results and will be coming back in as needed. Also, the office is really beautiful.
Dr. Patel is a very professional, thorough, and trustworthy chiropractor who has been very pivotal in helping alleviate my pain and discomfort. I recommend him highly!
Dr. Patel was great! He was very informative and helped me understand my pain and what could be causing it. I felt much better after and can't wait to go back.
I had been in agony for two weeks with a chronic neck problem that had flared up. After one appointment with Dr Patel I was 90% better and after two treatments the pain and tightness has completely resolved.
Dr Patel is the best! Been going to him for years.
Looking forward to meet him again. After my session was o er I Setanta appointment for my husband. Dr Patel is very kind,he explained to me everything he is about to do today and in the future. He is a very kind human being.He talks from his heart and not from his head. Respects his patient and treat me as person not as wallet.
Really nice guy, within 1 session I already feel a massive improvement!
Greatest Chiripractor around. Spends quality time and does soft tissue work before any adjustments.
I enjoyed Dr. Patel and will be going back. The only negative feedback I have, was them having an issue with my insurance at first, something I have never experienced before. Dr. Patel still saw me, which was great. However the wait time was long. I arrived at 5:50 for a 5:45 appmt( I lived across the street, and I wasn't going to go unless they took my insurance, they called my at 5:45 to let me know it was ok to come in). I waited till 6:30 to be seen. He also was seeing 2 other people at the same time in different rooms. He was very attentive when I saw him. Hopefully my time experience will be better next time I visit him.
Very nice guy - gave a great adjustment. Also had the patience to answer all of my questions and set up a thorough treatment plan. Definitely recommended!
