Frequently Asked Questions


Do you use sterile needles?

All needles are sterile and individually packaged for one-time use only.

What if I am afraid of needles?

I meet and work with many patients that are not very excited about needles being used to facilitate healing. Be assured, once they give it a try most people find acupuncture extremely helpful, relaxing and often fall asleep during treatment.  The needles are super thin and generally do not create any uncomfortable sensations.  Just let me know how you are feeling and I will make sure you are comfortable!

Do I accept Insurance?

We do accept many insurance policies- provided you have acupuncture benefits and have met your deducible.  If you have not met your deductible we are happy to submit claims that will contribute to meeting your deductible. We can also provide “super bills” for personal claim submissions or HSA accounts for reimbursement.  We do ask that you come prepared to pay for your initial visit to allow us time to verify and confirm benefits.  

Do I accept Works Compensation?

Yes onceI receive authorization and approved visits from your assigned WC doctor you are free to make an appointment.

Important for your First Visit-

The initial intake and treatment involves taking a detailed medical history as well as an in depth look at current complaints.  I also ask that you bring any blood work or diagnostics you have had over the last year, along with the intake forms provided on my website New Patient Page.  If you cannot fill them out before arriving please arrive 15 minutes early to do so. 

You will receive acupuncture that day along with a diagnosis and proposed treatment plan.  This visit is approximately 1 and ½ hours.
