From entering the nicely-appointed wait room to receiving my treatment, it was a pleasant experience. Dr. Rios is attentive and thorough; he does a detailed intake to determine specific acupuncture treatment for my significant back pain. The heating pad on my back was a plus!
This experience was so opposite of every acupuncture experience I’ve ever had. I was searching for acupuncture treatment close to where I live and I found this guy. He had all good reviews so I called to book an appointment. We spoke on the phone and made the appointment. I arrived early to my to complete the paperwork. When the doctor called me back to the treatment room that’s when it got weird. First off, He was wearing a mask and social distancing from me, and its late September 2022, pandemic has been over a long time now, so that was weird… Then he started berating me with questions about my primary health care doctor, asking me who she was, where was her office, when was the last time I saw her, what did she test me for, what were the results, why was I not on the medication she prescribed to me 2 years ago???!!. Mind you this whole time he never checked my pulses and he never checked my tongue and he never examined me. Then he refuses to treat me and tells I need to go see a specialist for my issues and not to take it lightly. Very confusing considering I just came to a specialist because Im no longer taking it lightly. I came in for an acupuncture treatment for symptoms he has listed on his website and I have had acupuncture treatments more than 100 times in my life. And Chinese medicine doesn’t exasperate someone’s condition, in fact its helpful in almost all conditions, especially the conditions I’m complaining about. Like I said, The complete opposite of every other acupuncture experience that I’ve had in my life over 100 times. I have met some of the most benevolent souls and healers in acupuncture throughout the years, like angels who all helped me get through some heavy duty healing and this jimmy joel wouldn’t treat me for a stomach ache. anyways it turned out to have a silver lining for me finding the right place, and I just have to say something about it to warn others and then let it go. Rated one star .
Great experience!! The place is nice, peaceful and clean! Joel was very attentive, communicative, patiente and nice. He made me feel comfortable during my sessions and i really enjoyed and felt relax This process helped me with my pain. Thank you so much for everything!!! Looking forward on coming back soon ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
