    Alex was really understanding and gave a detailed assessment of my knee injury during the initial assessment. The daily exercises that he suggested led to noticeable improvements in under a week. I'm impressed with his thoughtful instruction and quality of care, and I would recommend him to my friends and family.

    Alex was very friendly, caring and knowledgeable. He did a thorough examination to identify my problem and then gave me acupuncture in the same visit to help with the pain. I would definitely recommend him and the clinic to friends and family.
