Dr. Ken is very knowledgeable but mostly importantly, he is very passionate about his practice.
From FaceBook: My first acupuncture treatment was with Dr. Ken and I couldn’t have been more impressed! I was a little nervous as it was my first time trying it, but I was very happy with the outcome. I have since had several more treatments with Dr. Ken and would recommend him to everyone!
