I’m greeted with a friendly reception and it’s easy to make future appointments. The parking is convenient right behind the building. I would recommend the ACATCM clinic for acupuncture treatments.

Dr.Dennis’s diagnosis was very quick and straight to the point. He flawlessly palpated and applied the points he saw fit. I did not feel the slightest bit of pain for even a moment throughout the treatment. I was left to relax after Dr.Dennis had placed all the acupuncture needles on me. While waiting none of the needles had bothered me. And by the end of the treatment I felt as light as a feather and my muscle tension was relieved. All in all it was an effective and successful treatment.

I love receiving Accpunture treatment. Seeing a student or a doctor, I have had a great experience. There is parking so this is a nice bonus. I have met many great students through this college. Either the 12th or 20th location is worth going to. I highly recommend!
