    Frequently Asked Questions

    For TCM Service:

    General Information

    As a new patient you may be wondering what will happen at your first visit to the clinic.  It is not uncommon to have some anxiety if you have never been to an acupuncturist.  In most cases, all patients will leave feeling rested and relaxed.

    At the time of your first visit, we will have paperwork for you to fill out a health history form and acupuncture consent.  In addition to paperwork a photo ID will be copied with your insurance cards for billing purposes.

    When you meet with Dr. Wu you may be asked additional questions to give him a better idea of the best treatment plan for you.  This would be the best time to inform the doctor of any questions you may have or any additional ailments.

    After discussing your needs and health history information the treatment will begin. We often ask if you need to use the restroom before hand because of the length of time of the first treatment.  You will be asked to lie on a massage table and positioned in the best manner for the acupuncture points to be reached. Common positions are face down, on your back or on your side.   If you are uncomfortable please inform the doctor, we would like to make you as comfortable as possible.

    Your first visit will last at least an hour and follow up visits are between 30 – 45 minutes depending on the patient’s treatment plan.

    How often can I expect to come for treatment?

    New patients typically come twice a week for a couple of weeks, then, depending on how you are responding to treatment, visits may be decreased to once a week or twice a month.  Everybody is different and responds differently to treatment.
