Telemedicine is the best way to start...  It makes it easier and more convenient for patients to meet their doctor, explore their health goals, and review their health history. Often, online visits are more convenient and flexible for patients who are seeking to meet with the doctor in a less clinical setting before starting care. 
Telemedicine appointments: Initial consultations and system review for patients seeking help with Fertility concerns, Acupuncture, Herbal therapy, Nutrition and Weight Management, and Online Coaching clients. 


Many patients desire an evidence-informed and integrative approach to their care. Research has provided strong evidence that acupuncture can help with a variety of acute and chronic pain conditions, reproductive health for men and women, stress reduction, anxiety management, ptsd symptoms, and insomnia.
