His service to military veterans is outstanding. His commitment to caring for and listening to military members is exemplary.  I have spent 3 years needing help and this is where I found it.

I highly recommend Dr. Dave to anyone who might be considering acupuncture. He has tons of experience which is a great plus but I think his natural ability to apply gentle pressure is something very special.
