I have been plagued with pain and stiffness after breaking my ankle but after having treatments, my pain has gone and I can walk normally. These treatments have given me back my ability to walk normally again. Highly recommend.

I love going to Dr. Angel. The office is always clean and inviting, she truly cares about your health and overall well being. She makes you feel at ease with such love behind her work. I highly recommend her and wouldn’t go to any other provider for acupuncture.

Dr. Wood is very knowledgeable of the medicine she practice. Her office is very serene and tranquil and the environment is very welcoming. I would refer her to anyone especially those needing relief of pain and other ailments without the useof pharmaceuticals which masks issues as opposed to getting to the main cause of it.

I received acupuncture and other holistic services from Dr.Angel. Her breadth of knowledge and experience was both reassuring and comforting. I found her manner to be compassionate, considerate, extremely thorough, intuitive, calmingand most importantly to me, down to earth. It is extremely important to me for a provider to exhibit both competence and compassion because, while I may lack the scope of knowledge the healthcare practitioner has, in no way does that diminish my humanity and so I do not care for clinical treatment devoid of compassion, humility and genuine civility. My experiences with Dr. Angel were simply phenomenal. I would highly recommend her to anyone...and I have!

I was highly disappointed with Angel's lack of professionalism. I prefer to be addressed with professionalism instead of being addressed as "Hey girl" and other equally unprofessional greetings. Angel carried on a conversation with anotherclient about how much her degrees cost which I found to be very off putting. Angel did not provide the thorough intake/health evaluation I was expecting as she only asked me a few questions based on the information I filled out. I found Angel to be a bit reckless by the fact that she started spewing out names of various health conditions that she felt I had without even thoroughly learning about my background. This was not a great experience. If you are someone who is not turned off by a very casual approach, this might work for you. If you are looking for the upmost professionalism, this may not be the place for you. I wouldn't recommend this place to any friends, family, etc. based on my experience.

I think she is pretty nice. I am an international student, so I can only speak very poor English. She is pretty patient to explain things to me. After the acupuncture, I really feel better with my lower back and right leg. I strongly recommend her.
