What Our Patients Say

  • yelp "I was sent to Dr. Cherik for physical therapy. He was very attentive and genuinely cared for my well being. After a few sessions I felt significantly better. I still continue to see Dr. Cherik for regular adjustments as his hands are the only ones I trust."

    "It's on very few occasions that I decide to write a review. My experience was amazing and I am happy I visited Dr. Ara Cherik's office instead of somebody else's. The staff was very pleasant and genuinely cared about helping the patients. Dr. Ara Cherik is very knowledgeable, attentive, genuine and all around a wonderful professional. He explained everything he was doing and the steps he was taking in order to fasten my recovery. The treatment was well rounded and did not rely on one side too heavily. He gave me treatments and recommended exercises in order to help me heal faster. He takes his time explaining and making sure that the patient understands everything and he genuinely cares about the patient, unlike others. I definitely recommend him, you won't regret going to him."

    "I have had lower back pain for quite some time now, and have been looking for ways other than pain medications to get me back on my feet. I visited Dr. Cherik last week and was taken away by his level of professionalism, knowledge, and efficacy. His approach to decompressing my lower back has put me at 100 percent. He uses a decompression table, as well as a machine called the acuscope. He topped it off with manually stretching my lower back and gave me online access to the exercises he prescribed, with videos and instructions. If you've got neck or back pain, he is the one you want to see. "

    "I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctor's office. My first contact was with Dr Ara Cherik and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind he was. I've been seeing Dr Ara Cherik for two weeks now and I could honestly say he is really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this medical group. Dr Ara Cherik and his staff are extremely friendly and professional. "

    "I've gone to see Ara a few times for wrist inflammation. Since I've gone, the pain has subsided greatly. He explains everything he is doing in detail which is helpful and explains how the area of pain generally works. He takes time to answer questions thoroughly and ensures there are no other ones before you head out. I strongly recommend him. "

    "I don't usually give out 5/5 stars to healthcare providers so this is a serious indication of how pleased and elated I was after my consultation with Dr. Ara Cherik. It must run in the family because I am a patient of his father's (who is a neurologist) and they are both incredible healthcare providers! His practice is on the second floor of a beautiful two-story building on Central. Dr. Cherik's staff was polite, helpful, and very diligent at their job in assisting me with my paperwork and appointment scheduling. So now I have to gush about my experience with Dr. Ara! I was waiting in the waiting room when the Dr. walked in with a big smile and incredibly warm reception. This is so refreshing since most doctors come off so unenthusiastic, tired, and arrogant. In addition to his solid character and great bedside manner, Dr. Cherik is a gold standard chiropractor. I went in with lower back pain and his treatments were instantaneously effective and alleviating. Go see Dr. Ara- he is an awesome guy and a wonderful chiropractor! "
