Patient’s Testimonial

printed with permission

“I have been a patient of Paul since year 2003. He has treated me for allergies, skin problems, stomach problems, fibroid, muscle pain, neck and back pain. I believe that he is an excellent acupuncturist as he is very intuitive, caring and patient. He always answers any question I have. He has shared a lot of his knowledge about diet and nutrition with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone with health problems.”
