Everyone in the office is extremely nice & helpful! They made me feel so comfortable at my first appointment, which is super important if people go there in pain to heal. Everything was explained to me, so that I understood what type of condition that I was in. I’m a new patient & am still going there weekly, but I feel like I’ve been going there for years. Thank you! -Sean N.
A patient’s experience starts at the door by the way he/she is greeted by the employees at the front desk. The ladies at the front desk were very welcoming and greeted me with a smile. While at the massage table, the doctors were very attentive and even catered to my cold by handing me some tissues to feel comfortable while I laid down.
– Selin A.

Super organized. I love it. -Jamie A.
I was really nervous to come here but my friend recommended it and I am delighted i came. Every one was super friendly and very helpful. After having a bad experience at the ER the day before , the doctor really explained and helped me feel comfortable. – Claire T.
This is my initial visit but I was pleasantly surprised with the friendly office staff and the doctor’s caring personality. -Daien R.
The doctor really cared about my well-being, and even though he wanted to help me. He made it perfectly clear that he would need an MRI before he could treat me. It made me feel secure because he cared more about causing me harm than making money for treatment. I don’t trust doctors because I almost died due to one. I trust Dr. Abrankian with my care and I highly recommend him. I will be back with my MRI soon. -Cherise Y.
Wonderful experience being treated today when I was in pain. Everyone was professional, thorough, and I can see myself recovering in no time. Thank you. -Debbie L.
Dr. Abrankian and his staff were very professional and helpful. I was a walk in and was seen right away. The exam was fast but not rushed. Everything was explained well by the the doctor. Dr. Abrankian also took the time to call me when the MRI report was in. It was a very human experience. I highly recommend to anyone with back pain. -Robert D.
My previous experience with a different chiropractor left me very wary. However, Dr. Abrankian listened to my concerns and discussed trying a different treatment for my condition. So far I am optimistic that he and his staff will be able to help improve my current problem and help reduce future occurrences. They have all been very caring and helpful. Thanks!.-Michelle M.

Very good initial visit. Nice staff, very well coordinated session and they even had a sign on the front door where the floor slops down and it isn’t obvious, to “watch your step.” I appreciated that. -Jennifer B.

Dr. Abrankian and his staff are some of the nicest people I have ever met. They are extremely polite and continuously check on you to make sure you are okay during your treatment. I had several questions for Dr. Abrankian upon starting my treatment and he answered them both thoroughly and respectfully.

“Katie has always been very active in sports. She just finished up a cheerleading season and had started to run track. I noticed she no longer had breakfast, her lunch money was being returned and supper was optional. She had no appetite. Her weight soon dropped; she had no energy and mood swings were occurring. Needless to say, we were very worried.

“I thought a nutritionist might be able to help, but finding one who would not require a blood test would be a challenge. I called Dr. Abrankian and told him about Katie’s problem. He suggested we come in and talk to him about how chiropractic could help.

“With chiropractic adjustments reducing nerve interference, Katie’s appetite is back. She has also gained other benefits that we had not even originally addressed. Her monthly periods were very irregular and painful. Today they are much more predictable and regular and not nearly as painful. She has also not had a headache! Before she began getting chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Abrankian, she would have a bad headache at least every other week.”

Car Accident

“Twenty plus years ago I was riding in a car that was rear-ended and received a whiplash injury. At the time I went to physical therapy for several weeks, but still had constant pain in my neck and left shoulder daily for twenty some years.

“After the second or third visit with Dr. Abrankian there was no pain and I haven’t felt any pain since.”

Work Injury

“I am writing to thank you for giving back the life that I lost on September 24, 2005 after falling on a wet floor at work.

“I was seen for several months by a doctor for workers comp, had several months of therapy, received two injections in my lower back, was referred to a surgeon, was given two different pain medications, two different sleeping medications and was seen twice in the emergency room. My husband and I began getting information about stair glides because I was afraid I was not going to be able to get up and down my basement steps.

“I was referred by a co-worker but being very doubtful, I delayed contacting you for several weeks when finally at the end of my rope and still very doubtful I contacted you. I am so grateful that I finally took the chance. There is no way that “thank you” is enough for what you have done and are still doing. I have been able to resume my daily life activities which include working, gardening and helping my elderly mother.

“Again, I want to thank you; not only for giving me hope but also for your kindness and true concern for my well being. My only regret is that I did not come to see you sooner and I could have had less pain and less pain medication and sleeping medication. Thanks to you I no longer need any medication.”

Stress Relief

“I initially sought chiropractic care for stress related pain. After only three appointments, my pain had begun to subside and I knew that there was so much more that I could learn and accomplish with Dr. Abrankian.

Within one month of seeing my progress my husband began his care and I began bringing my 12-year-old daughter for treatment to maintain her well-being. I now consult with Dr. Abrankian on all aspects of my family’s physical and mental health.”


“I resisted chiropractic care for almost 70 years. Not that I thought it was something to be avoided at all costs, but as something I didn’t really need.

“Then several years ago I began having some headaches. These headaches were very predictable, they would start in the bones in my neck, spread to my shoulder muscles and then to my head. As time went on they became more frequent and more severe.

“Well, as time went by, my headaches got worse – to the point that I would have a headache every day, and many days, I wouldn’t be able to knock it out with pain relievers and would have to take off work to put my headache to bed with a heating pad and strong pain pills.

“Finally, a couple of months ago, my wife convinced me to try chiropractic. So, I started my series of treatments about 6 weeks ago and the results have been amazing.

“I’ve only had 2 or 3 headaches since and the severity has been manageable. With results like that, I’ll continue giving chiropractic a chance, and maybe at some time in the future even recommend it to my friends!

Live and Work Without Pain

“I am a dental hygienist and my job is very stressful to my neck and upper back. When I first came to Dr. Abrankian, I was in a lot of pain and found it hard to get through a day of work without pain. He got me out of pain and on a program to keep me that way.

When I am in alignment my general health is better and I am comfortable working and am able to keep up with my two boys. I have been very satisfied with Dr. Abrankian care and recommend him frequently to friends and patients.”

Neck Pain

“Chiropractic care has changed my life. When I began chiropractic care, my neck pain had gotten so bad that it interfered with everything I did. I started having neck pain when I was pregnant with my first child, over 7 years ago. I didn’t have it very often, maybe every 6 months or so. Over the years, it got a lot worse. It finally got to the point where I knew that it was something that Tylenol and a heating pad (now I know heat wasn’t good!) wouldn’t fix.

“I was scheduled to have an MRI done, but couldn’t because of a prior ear surgery. Not knowing what in the world to do, my sister-in-law recommended Dr. Abrankian. I considered not going because the thought of getting anything adjusted made me very nervous… When Dr. Abrankian examined me and said that he could help, I knew that I had made the right decision.

“It has been over a year and I don’t miss any of my appointments unless I have to. I don’t just get adjustments from Dr. Abrankian, I also get advice on how to keep myself healthy and I’ve learned to avoid things that could trigger my neck pain.

“I can’t even put into words how much better I feel. Chiropractic care has changed my life. I can’t imagine taking caring of my two small children with the neck pain I was having before going to Dr. Abrankian. He has truly been a blessing.
