This month marks my 1 year anniversary with Dr. Bud. On March 13, 2012 I was in a pretty bad car accident at 7am. By 3pm I was in extreme pain and was in a desperate search for a chiropractor to help with the terrible whiplash. Dr. Bud was kind enough to accept me as a walk-in and began the appropriate treatment. I know I would not have recovered as quickly as I did if I was not under Dr. Buds care. I continue to go for routine adjustments and feel rejuvenated each and every time.

Dr. Bud is very professional and compassionate. The members of his office staff are friendly and helpful. My condition has improved now that I am under his care. He has helped my children, too. I would recommend him to anyone that is in need of chiropractic care. He is thorough and well qualified to meet the needs of anyone in need of chiropractic care.

I could not walk when I first went to see Dr Bud, and within a few treatments I was greatly improved. I went to see another chiropractor the same week, and decided Dr Bud was the doctor with whom I wanted to work. He spent a lot of time with me, is exteremely intelligent and knowledgeable, and I have always felt the treatment he recommended was necessary.

I am pain free now, and realize his treatments have improved my overall health to be better than before I had my injury,.

I cannot recommend Dr Bud more highly! He is excellent

I was having trouble getting out of bed due to stiffness and pain. Muscle relaxers and pain pills became your daily regimen. Thanks to Dr Bud??s expert evaluation and actions, constant pain is no longer my daily experience. I am sure glad I met Dr Bud. Chiropractic help could postpone or eliminate the need for surgical intervention. It is always good to have a smiling face greet you. Dr Bud??s joyful and relaxed manner is a pick me up. I feel like a long lost friend when I am in his office.
Stop in and see for yourself. I am sure you will be glad you did.

I am delighted to write this review for Budincich Chiropractic Clinic in Pasadena CA. Dr. Budincich treated me during 2006 and recently in 2011 for my pinched nerve condition which had a potential for intrusive spinal cord surgery. Dr. Bud??s Chiropractic treatment helped me avoid the surgery in 2006, for which I was already scheduled at the USC medical center. Dr. Budincich was strongly recommended to me, by my then orthopedist, Dr. Greg Adamson, who said to me, ??If I send you to a Chiropractor, I will only send you to Dr. Budincich, whom I trust the most?. All my problems were gone for last 5 years, during which I observed some cautions and continued with minor exercise. Recently, I had some flare up again. My current orthopedist recommended me again for the same treatment, and Dr. Budincich's treatment seems to be working better this time.

I am a NASA/JPL scientist (Space Science and Nuclear Engineering) with specialty is in radiation detection and radiation effects in spacecraft systems. In my opinion Dr. Bud is extremely knowledgeable Chiropractor, who strictly follows all the professional rules and provides systematic treatment customized for each patient. He is very friendly and honest with patients. Dr. Bud discusses any treatment in full details with patients, he explains how quickly/slowly would it be effective, and in some cases also provides with risk and failure statistics to satisfy patient's anxiety. Budincich Clinic provides combination of treatment including adjustments, massage, acupuncture and such, for a quicker and coherent recovery from compounded problems from multiple causes. His clinic is very clean and patient friendly. He uses equipments which are unique and most effective for various treatments. Dr. Bus??s staff is also equally friendly and accommodating to patient??s needs and requests. I strongly recommend him to my family members and friends for Chiropractic treatment. Bottom line, Dr. Bud is the best of the best.

I met Dr. Bud and the team 10 years ago when my father became a patient after an auto accident. Years later my own circumstances brought me back to this wonderful office and I have never been let down by the amazing quality of care given every day by the front and back office as well and the doctors themselves! Not only does Dr. Bud make you feel great...he educates each patient on why chiropractic care is such a necessity which helps in the healing process and makes patients live a higher quality of life. The office is also very family friendly and Dr. Bud and staff are great with kids...adjusting my first born at a very early age. I have since become a chiropractic assistant and moved to another state and even working every day in this field, I have yet to find the caliber of greatness that Dr. Bud exudes! When I make trips back home, Dr. Bud is always first on my list!!!

I moved to Pasadena from Boston, Massachusetts in the spring of 2010. I was trying to find a good chiropractor to deal with my scoliosis here. I had seen a chiropractor in Boston for the past 25 years. I went to someone else in Pasadena first, and didn't like them. I looked on-line and found glowing reviews for Dr. Bud. I would like to add my two cents. He is a caring guy who zeroes right in on the problem. I came in stiff and achy, and he got me back in shape. His office also offers massage and other treatments that have really helped me. I highly reccomend him!

We felt compelled to write a favorable review for Budincich Chiropractic Clinic after many years of Dr Bud's friendly service and positive Chiropractic results!

Our relationship began about 10 years ago when our niece was Dr Bud's receptionist, and her Mom was his patient. My wife was referred by her sister, and has been a satisfied patient for all this time.

My daughter became a Competitive Cheerleader about 6 years ago, with a need for a good Chiropractor. Of course, she went to Dr Bud, and their relationship has lasted all of these years too. She is a Cheerleader for the University of Louisville in Kentucky. But when ever she is in town, she always goes to see Dr Bud for an adjustment.

I have a new job at NBC Universal Studios in Burbank. It is hard to get off work in the middle of the day to see my "old" Chiropractor in Burbank. But Dr Bud stays late to see patients on Tuesday nights, so I thought that I would give him a try. I have been going to see him every Tuesday night for a month now, and he has reduced my original pain to zero. Dr Bud is my "new" Chiropractor!

Please give him a try, and we are sure that you will be glad that you did!

Christine, Tom, and Carrie

I had a pinched nerve in my neck that caused 24-hour-a-day pain for two months. My orthopedist prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and cautious physical therapy that provided no relief whatsoever. When he recommended a neurosurgeon and delicate spinal surgery as my only remaining option, I decided to give Dr. Budincich a shot first. He was a friend of the radiologist who had done my MRI and had my records e-mailed to his office within minutes. After three aggressive adjustments, I was finally able to sleep at night. Within two weeks, the pain was gone entirely. Five years later, with regular tune-ups from Dr. Budincich, I'm still pain free. Besides his awesome medical expertise, he is one of the kindest, warmest human beings I've ever known, and every member of his staff embodies the same qualities. A visit to his office is like getting together with an old friend, and I always leave with a smile on my face.

I decided years ago out of fear that I would never go to see a chiropractor again. But when I became increasingly debilitated and my optometrist suggested that I go to the Budincich clinic, I was desperate. I finally allowed x-rays to be take, which revealed a severely arthritic spine. Since I live in Monrovia it was so convenient to see Dr. Wright in the Monrovia clinic. He has slowly gained my confidence and now everyone that I have known as my disease has progressed has commented on the amazing transformation that Dr. Wright has helped me achieve in my posture. The effect is beyond price, and I am so grateful.

Before going to Dr. Bud I was in constant pain day in and day out. I am in a wheel chair, or on a walker, it is very hard for me to walk. I have disc in my back that need to be removed and the pain is horrible. When it was recommended that I see Dr. Bud I really didn't want to see him because I didn't think he would be able to help me, but to my surprise the very first visit I felt better. I was truly surprised because I have been in this pain for years everyday 365 days a year. Short of surgery Dr. Bud is the best thing that has happened to me for my back. When I leave his office I truly feel better, the siadica pain is gone at least for a while. No one would understand if you don't feel pain, if you don't live it daily, it's not good. I feel like God sent me an Angel to help me with the pain. To have the pain relieved for a while when you have the pain that I do is heaven sent. If Dr. Bud can't help you I promise you, you can't be helped. I don't know what I would do without his help.

The office is very dirty - waiting room chairs are covered with stains and you are pushed to get into the "massage chair" while you wait which they also would be happy to sell you.

It was at least 80 degrees in there the day I went - very hot and the whole office looks like it is falling apart. Equipment is ancient and worn out. This is ironic since the Dr. has photos of his several private airplanes in the office. Also -old sports photos of the Dr. everywhere - on every possible wall.

Instead of the Dr. coming in you are first taken to one rooom where they want you to watch a 1970's video tape about chiropractic. It's embarassinlgy bad. Then you are taken to another room where you meet an assiatant to the Dr. Then the Dr. Himself comes in and puts his feet up on the desk in front of you while both of them take half an hour to discuss your problem and repeat "you came to the right place" over and over.

I had "x-rays" done in a back room that needed to be condemed and then they said they needed a few days to study the x-rays.

If it is possible to run a more unprofessional, sketchy, completely unhelpful practice I truly can't imagine how. This practice is all about them and not the patient or the problem in the least. Awful office is just disgusting to sit in.

Pros: Many pictures of Dr playing college sports.

Cons: Completely pointless going for any chiropractic help.

You can't beat the location - right off of the freeway and better than that - everyone at this office radiates professionalism. I usually see Dr. Bud and wow, I thought I'd seen good chiropractors before, but he tops them all. He used to be a professional shot putter and still has a lot of muscle mass, I think that helps with those adjustments. Other offices I've been to never even referred me for x-rays - this office has an x-ray machine on site. They offer massages and free posture classes on site. Another plus - I never feel rushed in this office.

I was referred to Dr. Bud by a family friend 12 years ago. When I went into his office I was carried in by my dad. I had terrible radiating pain down my legs and into my feet, and I could not walk. Within 3-4 adjustments I was up and walking and feeling so much better. I have since referred over 30 patients to Dr. Bud and my entire family gets regular wellness care. Dr. Bud adjusted both of my children a few days after they were born, and they continue to come in several times a year. Dr. Bud and his staff are amazing and they treat every patient like they were a part of their own family! I have been to several chiropractors over the years and Dr. Bud is the BEST.

"Dr. Bud" and his ENTIRE team that ranges from Front/Back Office Staff to Massage Therapists to Chiropracters is AWESOME! You feel as if you have known ALL these people your entire life after the first visit. Not to mention I cant believe how good I felt after the first adjustment and how much more energy I have and how overall good I feel!

Message from Michael N. Budincich, DC

Dr. Michael Budincich, more commonly known to his patient's as "Dr. Bud," has been a thriving Doctor of Chiropractic for twenty years. Though, it was the hand of destiny that drafted the course of Budincich's life. His initial plan was to be a dentist and he pursued that goal with the help of a track and field scholarship at USC. Looking back Budincich says, "It was a life changing experience that altered my focus." During heavy training as a shot-putter, he suffered a back injury which seriously compromised his athletic career. Budincich committed himself to an intense program of traditional physical therapy for over one month with U.S.C. trainers to no avail. He became quite anxious, a significant competition was looming and his injury was still not healing. In desperation, Budincich sought the advice of his coach who then drove him to a chiropractor. The results Budincich experienced were amazing. After just three treatments he felt well enough to compete and placed third in shot put and discus events the following weekend. A week later, Budincich who was just a freshman, beat a senior from UC Berkley in a PAC 8 Conference Duel breaking his lifetime best. The speed of his recovery and resulting athletic achievements have had a long lasting affect on Budincich's life. These extraordinary events motivated him to re- direct his focus from pursuing dentistry to becoming a chiropractor. Budincich says "If I had remained injured I would have probably lost my scholarship and subsequently never earned my degree."
