This practice is lovely. I never wait more than 5 minutes for my session. I've seen 3 practitioners since I startedcoming here & they're all wonderful professionals. It feels like friends reacquainted every time. Not to mention I always leave feeling better than when I arrived. So glad I found Lisa Sumption on ZocDoc!

Very friendly office from reception to the Doctor herself. I had 0 wait time. Dr. Sumption came out & introduced herself& her assistant. We thoroughly went over the reason for my visit as well as medical history. She talked me through every step & made me feel super comfortable. I've never had such a relaxing acupuncture session. I walked in with pretty serious lower back pain & walked out with definite relief. I couldn't believe it. I'll be scheduling wkly sessions from here forward. I can't wait to see & feel the results of regular visits.

I had a surgery on my jaw where they reconstructed the whole thing. Lisa was able to help me tremendously to recover. I had a very bad TMJ after the surgery and besides that a huge amount of swelling and just pain everywhere and Lisa was able to tap into the muscles that were tense and hurting. At one point I probably had 30+ needles in my face! She is also very caring. One of the only professionals that I met (and I met a lot) that never dismissed my concerns, always took them seriously, I always felt understood and heard which is so important. With her knowledge and true empathy for her clients we were able to put me back on my feet! I was happy that it didn`t work out with my previous acupuncturist because I found Lisa!

Initially I was nervous, I almost canceled. Because a coworker highly recommended Lisa I kept my appointment and I must honestly say I was not disappointed . Lisa is a beautiful person, shows that she genuinely care about what she does and the people that come to her for her expertise. She listens, and even your most embarrassing matter you feel comfortable talking with her about. Thank you.
