I want your experience at my office to be pleasant and comfortable.

My office is located in Torrance on Hawthorne Blvd, between PCH and Rolling Hills Road, on the west side of the street. My building has parking underneath and in back, elevator and handicapped restrooms.

Your First Visit
For your first visit, please plan on spending at least one hour in my office. During the first visit I will review your health information and talk with you about your overall state of health and wellness. I may ask you about digestion, sleep and energy level. Traditional Chinese medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and is based on careful observation. My diagnosis of your pattern takes into account lifestyle, emotions and environment. Once a treatment plan is established, follow-up visits are 30-45 minutes.

Download, fill out and bring this Patient Questionnaire with you to your first visit.

How many visits do I need?
Some issues are treated in a single visit such as the common cold. Chronic problems that have been around for years take a series of treatments. Generally a course of treatment for many pain related problems is six weeks and you should have good results by the third week. Hormonal issues, fertility and supportive treatments for ongoing disease processes are treated over several months with maintenance visits monthly. At the time of your first visit I can better estimate what you can expect.

Billing and Insurance
I use a billing service. If you would like us to contact your insurance carrier to check for coverage we will be happy to that for you. There is no charge for insurance verification. There is no guaranty that acupuncture treatments will be covered in all or in part. All patients are responsible for fees for their treatment. A typical first office visit will cost around $80- $92, depending on complexity and services rendered. Follow-up visits average $64-$78. I take checks, cash, American Express, Visa and MasterCard.
