Ratings for Dr. Ali R. Akhavan
Treatment at this facility should be very carefully considered before entering into any program. I was told I was an ideal candidate having had lower back surgery in 1978. The opposite proved true. After 2 treatments I felt about 50% better only to regress to elevated pain levels after completion of the lengthy course. Also, on 2 occassions the harness was not installed correctly on my body and came off during the treatment.A total waste of the time spent. This occurred when one of his assistants hooked me up (which was most of the time). I should have insisted that he(Dr.A)personally do the work.I requested partial refund due to the total ineffectiveness of this treatment on me.This was rejected.I would also seriously consider the average success rate of this treatment as you will only be shown the positive cases in his advertising literature and not the failures. Be Warned. This is very much a case of "Buyer Beware".
DR. Akhavan's office is more than an office; it is much like a community where the care givers really care about their patients. This attitude permeates outwardly to the patients. Everyone is extremely helpful and very willing to help in anyway they are able. I would highly recommend their spinal decompression therapy to anyone with a similar problem because it works; it is highly effective, non-invasive for treating slipped disc and sciatica. Improved mobility and reduced pain have been my most important improvements; this has re-established my independence: I can cook, dress, shop all by myself. I tried everything but surgery and Spinal Decompression was the only therapy that worked. Life was not fun. After the first 2 weeks of therapy, I was able to give up the drugs. Now I do my daily exercises given to me and I swim 5 times a week; Follow their advice, knowledge and information and you will have a full recovery. You will live again. Thank you
Unfortunately i did not have a good experience at this clinic with Dr. Akahavan. I got the impression that he is more concerned about having me go back as many times as possible in or der to charge me more, than he was for my health. My back pain is still as bad as it was when i first went after 6 visits. I do not recomment this clinic. There are other clinics that offer the same service with much better results.
