Denise was an answer to prayer for me.  After eight months of trying, I got pregnant after six weeks of working with Denise. I had already been doing acupuncture for the last year and went in with a bit of skepticism.  After my first visit with her, I knew I was home.  Denise has an extraordinary gift of listening and hearing patients’ needs.  I literally felt myself crying with gratitude after finding her.  I left every appointment feeling completely heard and cared for.  Denise also assisted me in clarifying/deciphering medical information, communicating regularly with my other doctors which made me feel I was being holistically cared for by a team.  She even helped by sending quick texts to other doctors so I could get appointments for second opinions and responded to my texts with quick questions or concerns. She listened to financial concerns and I always felt like she had my absolute best interest at heart.  She helped put my mind at ease during what was a challenging time for me and I can honestly say I benefited from her wisdom, knowledge, and care –the phenomenal acupuncture treatments were a bonus!  If you are looking for an incredible acupuncturist–and incredible human being — you have found her.  I give five-star reviews sparingly, only if it is truly deserved, and if I could, I would give Denise twenty stars.
