I was unable to stand, walk, or take care of my family from my back pain and legs going numb. They were a god-send. Treatment was thorough and Dr. Botelho taught me how to do daily activities correctly to avoid a flare up. I am so grateful that i found such a wonderful office with a great doctor. Thank you Dr. Botelho !!

When I walked in their door I was skeptical but desparate enough to try anything to get rid of chronic lower back pain. Dr. Botelho did a comprehensive examination and laid out a treatment schedule. Once treatment started I felt better each time until I finally found myself pain free for the first time in years. She's a miracle worker.
Oh what a feeling!!

Dr. Botelho and Dr. Webber are amazing. If you want to find the source of your pain rather than just temporary relief you will not be disappointed. I've never been to a more thorough and caring chiro.

I first went to Dr. Botelho on the recommendation of a friend for sciatic issues due to my pregnancy. (It had gotten so bad my 2 smallest toes on my left leg would occasionally just go numb.) Within 4 months of treatment everything was righted and I have never even felt a twinge since then!

I went in for upper back and hip issues due to 12-hour days at a computer. I had developed such intense chronic pain in my back that it made me want to vomit, and completely sidelined me from doing any physical exercise (I had at one point been in the gym 5-6 days per week.

Dr. Roth has literally “changed my life”. A few years ago, I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic, with a high fasting blood sugar. I tried for several years to work on it on my own – watching my diet, etc. Nothing really did the trick, until I had a complete workup with Dr. Roth, and she was able to balance what was out of whack with my body. She is also helping me sleep better at night and I have more energy during the day. I am no longer a fan of multi-vitamins or the latest this-is-the-best-supplement-ever. Dr. Roth has given me exactly what I need – no more, no less. Her program is geared to what I need, so it motivates me to be diligent. I am such a believer, that I have also referred my daughters and granddaughter to Dr. Roth!

Thank you so much for 14 years of keeping me walking. I have had two spinal surgeries. Dr. Weber and Dr. Botelho have been so sensitive to my condition, my idiotic injuries, my active career, and even my budget from day one. I cannot afford to go as frequently as I would like, but after Dr. B's diligent care for years, often all I need is an adjustment every few months now, or when I hurt myself. Linda even coached me through a horrific break-up when I had no one else to talk to. Jenny is always upbeat and smiling. Everyone seems to happy to see me when I come in, which is a great feeling. The gorgeous flowers on the reception desk (and the candy) is always welcoming. I love the full-wall wilderness murals in each exam room. I would love to see the office modernize the waiting room a bit, but the place is always clean and homey. Magazines are new. And it's beside the point anyway, because they run such a tight ship that there is almost NEVER a wait. This place is so fabulous that I pay out-of-pocket even though my insurance would cover for me to see another chiropractor. After all, I couldn't trust just anyone to hold my limp head in their hands and crack my neck. And I would never trust anyone who relies on electronic gadgets for adjustments. Dr. B. is the real deal. And if you are lucky enough to get in to see Dr. Weber when he's in town, you'll see where she got it from. I cant praise this place enough.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Bothelo & her team (especially the always kind Linda). I had a serious disc injury that allegedly needed surgery. I went here and avoided going under the knife. Plus, the follow up maintenance / therapy has kept me going strong for over a decade. Seriously, if you want attentive service and help maintaining a long-term healthy lifestyle, go to Chiropractic Center of Los Angeles. Listen to your Uncle Randy, don't neglect your back. Take care of it.
By Angela M. at Yelp.com 04/04/12
I've been seeing Dr. Bothelo & the massage therapist Veronica for adjustment and massage regularly for the past 9 months. When I went for my first appointment, I was so weak with a back injury I couldn't open a jar of salsa. The treatments I've received have made a dramatic impact on my life and I can now do normal, every day activities, as well exercise!

Trying out a new massage place, you really never know what you're in for. I purchased a Groupon and thought that for the price, it was definitely worth giving this office a try.
I spoke with Linda on the phone and she was wonderfully friendly. That goes a long way and I certainly appreciated it, being a new client and a groupon holder as well.
The exterior is unassuming, and they have parking around back (yay!). And then you walk into this beautiful office - the interior is immaculately clean and professional, and very nicely decorated. Big cushy chairs and a wide selection of magazines await you should you need them. I was very pleasantly greeted by Jenny, and directed down the hall to a spotless and perfectly appointed massage room. The temperature was perfect and the music at just the right level. The air was clean and not pumped full of obnoxious odors, the massage table was covered in clean linens and was perfectly cushy and new feeling. Besides for my yapping, the office was quiet, calm, and uber relaxing.
My massage therapist was (wait for it... get ready for excessive gushing and carrying on, because I have exhibited great restraint thus far and I will thank you kindly to appreciate that - you almost thought I was a normal calm person...) AMAZING. HE WAS AWWWEEESSSSOOOOMMMMMME. Nagee was friendly and easy to talk to, and carefully listened to my various gripes (my shoulders bla bla hands bla bla pinched nerve maybe bla bla bla kittens bla bla bla). He did a FANTASTIC job. I can handle a lot of pressure (so he noticed) and without my saying anything he knew exactly where to target and expertly worked on all the rotten hoogie boogie kinks behind my shoulders, in my arms, down my back. I have absolute faith in his skills - he knew exactly what he was doing and hunted down every knot and pinch perfectly. If you go, be sure and demand Nagee. Unless I'm trying to get an appointment with him, because I WILL fight you for it.
I will absolutely positively be back - I highly highly highly recommend Chiropractic Center of LA. If I could add glitter and dancing unicorns to this review, I would do it. Don't even bother looking up another office - trust me. I've already made another appointment for next week, and one tomorrow with the doctor for a consult.
Check this wonderful place out, you will be so glad you did. They offer a wide range of supportive services (from chiropractic to nutrition), and are absolutely a must-try.

I bought a groupon for a massage and this was by far the BEST massage I have ever received! I had Veronica and she knew exactly the kind of pressure to apply. I am really ticklish and most massages end with me more tense because I'm trying not to squirm around. Not with Veronica- I never squirmed...not even once. And the next day I felt amazing- all of my knots had been broken up. Brilliant! I will definitely be going back. And I heard there is a special this month and in August to see their N.D., so I will be making an appointment to see her, too.

I came here for a massage recently and had the best experience. Everyone from the receptionist to the massage therapist was WONDERFUL. Each person was so nurturing and soothing. The massage room was cozy and quaint, and very quiet. I would definitely return to this place because the massage therapist and the receptionist were so kind and pleasant to deal with, which is part of the whole therapeutic experience. They made everything so easy and pleasant. Took off one star because I had to park on the street, a block away. There was no parking available in the back.
By GE K. at Yelp.com 02/01/13
Absolutely great experience! I had a groupon for this place - set up the appointment the day before no problem (receptionist was very friendly). I came in and the whole atmosphere was very inviting. I filled out a quick form and was taken to my room right away (the receptionist was just as nice and welcoming as she was on the phone).
By Adele R. at Yelp.com 02/22/13
Tried them out from a Groupon since I have long been looking for a place to get regular, deep therapeutic massage and they're not far from where I live. Great experience from start to finish. Warm and sincerely ebullient greeting from the wonderful receptionist, Jenny (who was great on the phone too). Everything was simple and relaxed, from intake form, to going into the treatment room, to checking out afterward (and getting a coupon for the next massage!). And most importantly, the massage therapist, Zumi, was excellent -- professional, skilled, kind, and did wonderful deep and thorough work that I've been needing and looking for. I'll definitely go back!
By LookwhosYelping I. at Yelp.com 06/04/13
Dr. Botelo is the absolute best! I've been a patient here off and on over the years, and always get wonderful care here. I highly recommend the adjustment/ massage therapy combo if you have a little extra time because they therapists on staff here are excellent.

I am a medical doctor who has needed my own medical care over the last year, and was growing unhappy with the results and generally uncaring bedside manner I was encountering with my doctors. Tired of doctor shopping, I turned to naturopathic medicine, and after just one visit with Dr. Roth i already feel better, and I think I understand why. The conventional medical model is fixated on convincing you that you are "fine" if you're not sick with a serious disease. This probably comes from the disillusionment and feeling of isolation that doctors develop in their training, taking care of the sickest, poorest patients on little to no sleep. Then, when they are churned out into the real world, a patient with gastric reflux seems healthy in comparison and even possibly overreacting. Naturopathic medicine is different in that it analyzes all of the factors contributing to your symptoms that YOU have control over, and what YOU can do about them, without developing dependence on a doctor. Dr. Roth indeed sits down with you and develops a multifaceted treatment plan with labs, diet/supplementation, and lifestyle advice that you might not get from a medical doctor. She also communicates well and helps you feel that you are truly being managed - not just made to make a followup appointment. It would be hard to convince someone that a patient in the throes of an active heart attack shouldnt run to a hospital right away, but for chronic conditions, naturopathic medicine's approach is vital.

I have been seeing Dr Botelho for a decade now. I never feel physically better, than when she is treating me. She has always treated me with the utmost respect and patience, and seems to genuinely care for her patients. She is simply superb in her treatments, not only in mastering the chiropractic technique, but in having a knack for feeling the pain of us patients...and I mean that both physically and psychologically. Without her expert care, I would be little more than a cripple, unable to function in life. I wish I had the verbal skills to say more words of praise, because she so much deserves it. I very highly recommend her services.

been misdiagnosed for 6 month by my GP and neurologist. Went to see Maya and I started to get answers on the 1st visit: Vitamin B12 deficiency confirmed by some additional blood tests/genetic testing I like the fact that Maya takes time to explain and educate the patient.

I have never had a Chiropractor that knows exactly what I need every time I go in. When I 1st came to Doctor Botelho I had done something to my neck in my sleep and could hardly move it. After 1 treatment I had full range of motion again and almost completely pain free. After the 2nd time seeing her I was 100% and now go 1x a moth to keep everything balanced or when I have an issue. She is definitely one of the best and very affordable! If you are having any issues go see her and let her help you!

I've needed to make use of the services of Dr. B and the Chiropractic Center's cadre of massage therapists for a fair number of years now. Dr. B and her massage therapists do excellent work and the support staff is courteous and professional. Over the years, I've referred quite a few people to her offices and will continue to do so.

Thank goodness for my friend Vince recommending Dr. Botelho! I was in so much back pain. I went to two different chiropractors before her. I felt good after I left but the next day would still feel the same pain. I was about ready to give up but then my friend recommended her. He said that she literally saved his life. My first appointment with her some of the pain went away and I felt a lot better. I still had a little bit of pain but I could tolerate it. She recommended that I come back for three more sessions. I am so glad that I did because after that I was back to normal. From now on I will always go back to her and I will recommend all of my friends to go to her. Thank you so much Dr. Botelho
By Denise K. @ Yelp.com 10/14/15
Dr. Botelho is incredible. I have had back and neck problems for a long time that were really aggravated after being rear-ended in a car accident. I found her chiropractic services online, so I tried her out. I was skeptical because the chiropractor I was seeing before didn't have any impact. Dr. Botelho's office was a completely different experience. She's an expert. She assess your entire body, finds the blocks and tightness and dislodged it. To me, she works more as a kinesiologist. She stretches your muscles, loosens the joints, and has even stretched the inside of my mouth and jaw, helping tremendously with the muscle tension I have from grinding, which can contribute to my neck stiffness. Her chiropractic adjustments are thorough and therapeutic. Since I've been seeing her my spine is much less tense and my mobility has greatly increased. I highly recommend her. She's clearly someone who is passionate about her work and her patients, and an expert at her craft. I would recommend her to any of my friends. The office is at a very convenient location, there's free parking, and she always runs on time. Bonuses!

I'll keep this as short as possible. I'm very happy to had found Dr. Roth as I was desperate at the time for finding help on an unknown issue. Working with her is like getting a glimpse of what medicine COULD be: cutting edge, integrative and personable.
I love that she requested tests that actually made sense - for example, I find it curious that psychiatrists don't measure the neurotransmitters or related chemistry before and after prescribing such powerful mind-altering chemicals. So, after these simple tests, it made sense why some meds worked and others didn't. I mean, every mechanic knows to measure the oil levels via the dipstick to the point where it becomes a habit (I was a mechanic once). Same is true for some of the genetic tests she requested; if the enzymes are not fabricated...no wonder there are problems!
I would normally deduct a star for payment or convenience - but as you know by now 'Insurance' does not cover medicine that actually heals. It's all about patching you up and 'off you go..."
Best Wishes to the Dr., I hope to return soon :-)

I recently went into Chiropractic Center of LA with a terribly painful pinched nerve in my mid-back. The pain shot down my right arm and was completely debilitating .
When I called CCLA, they were fortunately able to see my that day. I was pleasantly greeted by Jenny at the front desk. I had pre-filled out their patient intake form which I highly recommend you do prior to your first visit. It just makes things go much faster.
With very little wait time, I was being seen by Dr. Botelho. She's a very kind mannered lady who ran me through all the full diagnostics to determine the exactly source of all my pain. By the time my appointment ended, Dr. B had pretty much identified the problem spot, adjusted my back, and gave me some decompressing traction and massage. I immediatley had some relief, so I scheduled more appointments.
Dr. B even recommended getting massage or acupuncture in conjunction with her treatment. I opted for acupuncture since I also have a good acupuncturist.
After about 4-5 sessions with Dr. B and a few acupuncture sessions, I no longer have any pain in my back, shoulder, or right arm. I firmly believe that her adustments and massage contributed to the majority of my recovery and I couldn't be happier with the treatment I received.
Thank Dr. Botelho and everyone at CCLA.
Tiips on seeing Dr. B:
Free parking in rear of building (use alley for access)
By Jen F. @ Yelp.com 01/08/16
I started feeling pressure in the back of my head late afternoon yesterday. I made a very last minute appt with Dr. B and boy am I glad I did. I'm walking away with no pain and a stretchy new hip (Bonus!!). I'm not even kidding when I say Dr. B is a miracle worker.
By Christopher S. @ Yelp.com 04/18/17
Dr. Botelho is patient, gentle and effective. Her treatments always get me back on track physically. Along with my usual back issues, she has been able to help with my should and foot pain too.
By Chris A.@ Yelp.com 07/07/17
This is an old school doctor's office with a competent doctor and a chill front desk. Nothing flashy, nothing shiny and no hype. Dr. Botelho is a petite, strong fingered, highly energized chiropratcor thatis cautious with your injuries but efficient in realigning not just the spot that has the immediate symptoms of the pain, but the other misalignments in the body which feed into it. She reminds me a little of a female David Spade and has a positive attitude. Quick and well-practiced, I have gone a number of times for neck and shoulder pain, (which she successfully addressed), and sent friends her way as well.
