Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Setareh Derakhshan graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 2011. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgia State University. She is currently specializing in Neurology at the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies and she will be board eligible in 2014. As an intern, she trained with the renowned chiropractic neurologist Dr. Shad Groves. This training sharpened her diagnostic and treatment skills. In caring for patients Dr. Derakhshan uses a gentle yet very effective approach. Her belief is that if the diagnosis is correct, the treatments are much more effective. Dr. Derakhshan has training in functional medicine. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, by evaluating how the body is performing. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of healthcare to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Dr. Derakhshan spends time with her patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, she can support the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Verified Patient Reviews
Extraordinarily good doctor. Performed an extensive interview and conducted a number of hands on tests to determine probable cause(s) of problems. Very observant and adjusted her diagnosis as she gained more and more information. Initial manipulation session provided noticeable improvements. Very smart person. Really impressed that she kept probing -- through interview and through physical tests -- to test her assumptions and, based on additional information gained, to modify her initial diagnosis. Incredible that she could achieve as much therapeutic benefit in one session.
It was awesome
Dr. Derakhshan is always friendly and cheerful. She seems genuinely interested in her patient's well being and in designing a treatment program that will most benefit that particular patient. I would definitely recommend her!
Receptionist was very friendly and the doctor's ability to figure out exactly what was wrong and take steps to help fix me was excellent. Going again this week!
Dr. D is very caring and attentive to your needs. She makes sure you leave with a few takeaways to continue caring for yourself until the next visit.
Great first visit with Dr. D. She was straightforward and pleasant, spent plenty of time asking history questions and getting to know me and my situation. Much appreciated visit!
Compassionate, great listener, provides wonderful explanations about health related issues and the best courses of treatment. Dr. D is concerned about the whole person, not a single symptom. In addition to Dr. D the other people working in her office are equally personable, compassionate and guiding to assist the patient to truly acquire a higher quality of life.
Dr. Derakhshan is a very talented chiropractor and has been of great help to me. Her and her staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Your Health In Motion!
With my hectic life and work schedule; I try to maintain my wellness journey by receiving treatment and adjustment twice a month. Today's visit had to be changed to an earlier time. So I called and spoke to Sonya and asked if at all possible if I can be seen sooner then my 1 PM appointment. She checked with Dr. D., and told me that is fine. So I got there and all their treatment rooms were being used. But 2 minutes later a patient left and then I was taking to a room for treatment and adjustment. I just love Dr. D and her staff's amazing customer service and treatment/adjustment. Life's daily activity and stress take a toll on a body, and feeling so much better after each treatment, helps me to continue on life's journey!
Still hands down the best health care provider, who I continue to see for Chiropractic treatment/adjustment during my healthy journey of wellness.
Dr Derakhshan is so caring, and has an excellent staff that helps you from the moment you walk in.
I can't say enough, about how amazing Dr. Derakhshan and her staff continue to be during each office visit for my continued journey of wellness. had been to several other Chiropractors in the past and most of them made me feel worse at the end of each visit. Not the case with Dr. Derakhshan; I have been for treatmnt from Dr. Derakhshan since last Summer and in under 20 minutes she had worked some sort of miraculous healing, during each treatment and adjustment. I was stuck in 210 Freeway traffic, where it seems busy no matter the time of the day. I got to her office about five minutes late and the office was busy. But still I was called in and lead to a room and a couple of minutes later; Dr. Derakhshan came in for my treatment and then adjustment. Afterwards, I was feeling great and very much enjoyed my office experience!
Just wanted to add my 5 stars that Dr. Setareh Derakhshan and this place is still EXCELLENT! I have been going to Dr. Derakhshan for treatment since last year, but this past month, life got too hectic and busy for me again and had to keep rescheduling; but finally I made it back today to get the much needed treatment and it was so worth it and I feel so much better that I am starting/continuing my journey to wellness by Dr. Derakhshan, and her and her staff continue to be amazing. The numerous times I have visited both office locations; I have had no regrets, and was treated very well. I am extremely grateful with Dr.Derakhshan and her staff. Words can't describe how thankful I am that our paths crossed. I am just amazed at how great my body feels and I hope to make the effort and time to stick with my continued treatment and journey of wellness!
Dr D is excellent! She has helped me so much and I recommend her highly!
Doctor D. is fantastic!
When I got to the office, Dr. D. was super busy, but I was still seen for treatment a little before my appointment time, and I was feeling so much better after my treatment. Definitely the best around and I will definitely return!
Setareh is outstanding. She will relieve your pain. She treats all members of our family. My daughter said it best when she said as we pulled into the parking lot, "I've been waiting all day to see Setareh! I woke up this morning and was excited to know that I was going to see Setareh today!"
As always on top of things, very professional and caring. I was almost late because of traffic, but when I got to her office, even though they were busy, still got called in and my treatment was started right away. I was in and out within thirty minutes. Highly recommend Dr. Derakhshan.
Dr, D and staff are always amazing! This was my 4 visit for my ongoing treatment and my journey to wellness and being pain free is going great. My appointment was for 1PM and got there around 1240 and the front desk employee Gailey greeted me and called me back, where I saw Dr. D., who took me to the treatment room. Always caring and friendly, love it.
It was very quick and helpful. I am a work in progress and well on my way to wellness, physically and spiritually thanks to Dr. Derakhshan.
She was exceptional at explaining the mind body connection that took a lot of the myth out of my own narrative around my back pain. Issues were resolved that very day of the visit.
Definitely a well caring and helpful doctor and staff who are in it because they genuinely like to help others.
Dr. Setareh was great! She was extremely personable and willing to answer any questions I had about my treatment. She was very thorough in making sure I understood and was comfortable with the treatment.
They really do stand by their name and actually do CARE from start to end. Hands down the best health provider around. I am originally from Pasadena, and will be moving back in September. But I made the early trip from Murrieta to Pasadena to see Dr. Derakhshan because I heard so much great things about the Doctor and her office staff, and I was in dire need of an adjustment and treatment. Also I was eager to start back on the road of wellness and she did not let me down. My appointment was for 1250PM, got there at 1220, and they were busy, but I was still called back to start the paper work and straight to the treatment room and consult with Dr. D. Then the treatment and adjustment. Dr. D. has an amazing bed side manner, you really sees she cares, and takes time with you and asks you if you have any questions, concerns, or comments. I will be going for my next adjustment real soon and continue with Dr. D on my road to wellness. Thank you so much for your great work!
Setareh Derakhshan was great and her staff was very friendly. She was very informative and was great with my 5 year old son. She is definitely a keeper. Made an appointment for my oldest daughter already.
Dr. D diagnosed and corrected my spinal problem in a single visit! She is competent, friendly and efficient! She is by far the best chiropractic I've ever seen!
Dr. Derakhshan is a superb chiropractor. I really appreciate her additional professional understanding of neurological issues as they related to chiropracty and health in general. She is upbeat, positive and very effective at evaluating and treating my imbalances. Her staff is also friendly and helpful. They are a joy to work with!
Great visit! Friendly, caring, and informative!
Dr. Derakhshan was amazing! She came into the exam room with such a peaceful yet confident demeanor and I liked her immediately. She was gentle throughout treatment, yet very effective. I am truly looking forward to returning for more adjustments!
She was very thorough, and listened to all of my concerns. She answered all of my questions.
Dr. Derakhshan is my first and only one I would ever trust to work on my muscle tensions! Her staff is wonderful, such professional sweethearts. I have been dealing with shooting pains and pinched nerves since i was 15 and after my visit with her it felt like for the first time I never had any back problems to begin with!! would recommend her to every person in the world.Fast wait time excellent service thank you
Wanted me to come in a couple more times to milk me for my money. No thank you.
