In the Fall of 2005 I began experiencing severe lower back pain. I tried a variety of disciplines to relieve the pain including appointments with an orthopedic surgeon, treatments with a chiropractor, sessions with a physical therapist, and finally three epidurals. All without any lasting results. I contacted David upon the recommendation of the anesthesiologist who administered the epidurals since the only other alternative offered was surgery. I was completely unfamiliar with acupuncture , but at this point I was interested in anything. I spoke with David prior to my appointment and he was extremely knowledgeable and I felt very comfortable about seeing him for treatment. I had an appointment with David on a Tuesday while I was experiencing severe pain and on the following Thursday I had almost no pain. I continued to see David on a regular basis for about a year and then not at all. I have had an occasional flare up, which usually requires one treatment. David was the only source that provided consistent and long lasting relief from pain. I highly recommend David for his skills as a practitioner and as a wonderful and kind person. Alice W.

“Several years ago I contracted Lyme disease and suffered from a variety of side effects. After traditional medical approaches were not successful, a doctor recommended David Hobbs. His acupuncture treatments combined with Chinese herbs helped me enormously. I continue to be impressed by his professionalism, broad medical knowledge and uncanny ability to connect with patients”. –Adriana M.
Dear David, I wanted to thank you for all of your kind care you provide me recently with my acupuncture treatments for my condition of neuropathy. As you know I am a 2 year breast cancer survivor and I developed sensory neuropathy in my hands and feet as a side of effect from my chemotherapy. I had suffered with this for over 18 months. I thought it was a permanent side effect I was going to have to live with, but what a miracle it is that through your treatments and advice it is 99% gone. I have to admit I was a bit sceptical, but tried to be open minded about acupuncture. I also appreciated your expertise in nutritional supplements I should be taking to assist in the acupuncture treatments for my condition. You are a caring professional and I would highly recommend you to any person who is suffering from conditions that acupuncture could help with! Thanks again! Fondly, Linda L.
