I started going to Dr. Rion two years ago when I was pregnant with my second child. I had seen a different chiropractor when I was pregnant with my first, but the long drive to the other office was no longer feasible. My Bradley birthing instructor recommended Dr. Rion, and I'm thrilled to be a patient of his. The office is clean and comfortable, and there is a play area for children in the waiting room. The whole staff is incredibly nice and professional, and I've never had a problem getting an appointment that is convenient to my schedule. Dr. Rion is especially knowledgeable about issues related to healthy living, and he is always happy to answer questions and provide information to those seeking it. I'm a firm believer in the benefits of chiropractic care, and I'm certain that my regular visits during my pregnancies helped facilitate the very smooth labor and delivery I had with both babies. Now, my whole family receives regular adjustments - including my 3-year-old and 17-month-old - and I feel like it really makes a difference in our overall health. The care that my family and I receive at FFC is exceptional, and we really couldn't be happier with our experience.Melissa K.
I have lower back issues along with sciatica due to tight hip flexors, running without stretching enough and living an active life. Dr Rion was referred to me by a personal trainer who visits him on and off for the past 3 years. I am not a huge fan of getting cracked but Dr Rion's approach is much more whole body, eastern meets western philosophy and I am a fan of his practice. He's great at treating the whole family with a focus on babies. He's office is conveniently located right off of the Fwy and there's parking right out front. His staff is friendly and professional. I am now a fan of tune ups and have had great results with pain management. I've also learned some great stretches for my hip flexors (: and i am proactive of visiting him anytime I switch up my workout routines or under more stress since I carry it in my upper back. I always feel great when I leave his office and now look forward to my adjustments. Good luck! You're reading this because you're in pain and just remember it didn't happen overnight even if it was that 1 box you lifted or golf swing on your 9th hole. It really is all about the core and strengthening your lower back. There isn't 1 magic cure and all the treatments I've tried took time for me to feel relief.Claudia G.
I've been holding off on writing this review until I had gotten a few Chiro adjustments to see if they made a difference and well, they totally did. I've suffered from Sciatica for about 5+ years and I've tried EVERYTHING to get better. I've seen physical therapists, sports medicine doctors, acupuncturists, herbalists, and my regular physician (who typically likes to pump me full of pain killers, muscle relaxers and steroids). In another fit of sciatic pain a few months back, I scoured Groupon to find a deal on a chiropractor (my insurance didn't cover it) and found Flintridge Family Chiropractic had the best deal at the time. I clicked purchase, spent my $65 and made my appointment. My first appointment, I met Dr. Mike Shahbazian. He was fantastic with explaining everything to me and what the process was going to be like. I scheduled my first set of appointments and was on my way. I felt a little better after each appointment. The adjustments along with the posture advice (I'm a horrible serial sloucher) and take home stretches and exercises have had a major positive effect on how I started to feel. Eight weeks later and i can positively say that going to the chiropractor was what I should have done five years ago. I still have achy days, but consistency in appointments and actively continuing to work on the pain has left those achy days few and far between. Avik A.
I've been a patient of Dr. Mike's for some time and he is the BEST. I don't go as often as I should but when I do get a chance to make it out that direction, I'm always greeted warmly by the staff at FFC and re-aligned by Dr. Mike. I can't emphasize the importance of an adjustment and the chiropractic care. It will do great for your body and you. If you have never been to a chiropractor, try Dr. Mike and you will see immediate results in the way you feel and the way you move. Appointments are recommended but if you don't have one, try calling the office to see if they have a spot- Their staff are very accommodating and friendly, I highly recommend Dr. Mike! P.S. if you are especially active with sports - you definitely have to go sooner rather than later. It will help with your performance! Great supportive care to get stronger and more efficient!Avik A.
I highly recommend Flintridge Family Chiropractic to everyone. I used to have back pain, neck pain, and a horrible slouch for years. Thanks to Dr. Mike Shahbazian, I am now relieved of all back and neck pain, he helped me overcome slouching, and has even made me a healthier person through the Purification Workshop. But that's not all, when I hurt my shin in a skiing accident, they took care of that too! Everyone there is so nice, attentive, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. I'm so glad I started going to Flintridge Family Chiropractic and Dr. Mike. I look forward to all my appointments, and seeing my new friends at FCC.Amanda B.
I can't say enough good things about The Flintridge Family Chiropractic. The initial consultation was so thorough and gave me a great insight as to what some of my issues are. Dr. Mike Shahbazian takes the time to find out about you and explains his assessment and walks you throughout the process. It is apparent that Dr. Mike is in love with his profession and has a passion for providing quality care and maintaining his patients' good posture and subtle nuances of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. The reason Dr. Mike Shahbazian receives 5 stars is simply he is the BEST. He has reduced pain and discomfort from my body. He sincerely cares about his patients' wellness and every time I go there I feel like I am so welcomed. He is good at appointment time as well. I never waited more than 5 to 10 minutes. Flintridge Family Chiropractic is very well managed and run by the doctors. The office is urban yet inviting and comfortable. The entire team at Flintridge Family Chiropractic are friendly, professional and caring. This practice has so much soul, positive energy and vibrant spirit! As a small business owner, I love this place and send any of my clients here that ask for a chiropractic recommendation. No hesitation! :)Gayane M.
I really love going to get adjusted. I have had back issues my whole life. I can't say enough about Dr. Mike Shahbazian and his commitment to whole body wellness. I have been seeing Dr Mike for about two months and in that time he has fixed my sore lower back, my stiff neck and treated my hip issues. He has a way of making you feel like you are his only patient and explaining everything in detail so you know exactly why your injury happened and how to prevent it in the future. His office has a wonderful warm and inviting feel and the staff are very professional. If there were more stars to give he would get them all. Dr Mike is an expert and you will love the care you will get!Garo K.
This is a very welcoming clinic - right away I felt like I'd come to the right place. The staff always look happy, which is a good sign! Dr. Mike is very good at explaining what the problem is and what the recommended course of treatment will accomplish and in a realistic time frame. Treatment is effective and there is no waiting to receive treatment although the place is usually very busy. Good scheduling control which can be a challenge in any medical practice. They treat every age - babies to the baby boomers! I'm now almost pain free in my foot after only 4 or 5 treatments. There is no pressure here to sign up for blocks of treatment, or to buy their supplements. Have full confidence that you or your family member will receive excellent care in a very pleasant environment if you come to Flintridge Family Chiropractic.Leah S.
