I've been seeing Sharon for years and am NEVER disappointed. Her accuracy with the acupuncture is astounding; results are incredible, and she's knowledgeable is so many areas besides acupuncture and herbal medicine. Can't imagine what I'd do without her.

Best pain relief I have had after several weeks of pursuing other therapies (massage, ART, PT, anti-inflammatories.) After an hour of acupuncture, I finally had a good night's sleep for the first time in a month, and the muscle seems to have relaxed completely. Highly recommend for sports and other musculoskeletal injuries.

Sharon both asked and answered a lot of questions. She offered making my next visit so as to not be caught in rush hour traffic. She laid out her plan of treatment for the next three weeks. When I surprised her with a couple aches and pains I forgot to put down on the application, she immediately supplemented her approach to accommodate those maladies. Very impressed.

Sharon listens carefully and elicits a thorough history. She is expertly trained and very experienced. Her manner is caring and reassuring, her hands steady and gentle, and the results are amazing. It's a bonus that Sharon has a great sense of humor too especially when you are having needles driven into your body! I cannot say enough good things.

Sharon was professional but not at all stuffy. She asked me pertinent questions and checked on me a few times throughout the treatment. I felt very comfortable and like I was in competent hands. I felt a lot of relief in my knee and thigh...2 areas Sharon targeted for treatment.

Sharon was highly professional and sensitive to my needs. I am a skeptic, so whether these treatments will actually requires more time, but that has nothing to do with Sharon herself. She created a comfortable environment and is a good practitioner.

I was a little nervous in the beginning being as though this was my first time trying acupuncture, but Dr. Sharon was very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable right away. I was informed about things that I was not aware of and believe that the information I was given is very beneficial. I feel like this is what I've been missing for years with dealing with pain and not knowing why and she has answered that. I am very excited about my next appointment!!! Thanks to recent reviews I decided to go with Dr. Sharon.

Sharon is an complete professional. I have metastatic breast cancer and Graves disease. She will research the literature to find out everything she can about your problems so that she will provide you with the best care. She is extremely knowledgeable about the role that Chinese medicine and acupuncture can play along with traditional allopathic or osteopathic medicine. She is a most compassionate, caring and competent health care provider.
