Fees, Forms, and Tips for New Patients

Thank you for your interest in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You’ll find many answers to your questions on this website including how to make an appointment.

Due to public health concerns about the spread of Covid-19 we’re not scheduling appointments until the week of June 15th.  We’re taking extra precautions to keep our patients and community safe and healthy in the wake of the pandemic. This includes disinfecting equipment, treatment tables, chairs, desks, doorknobs, and contact surfaces before and after patient treatments. Hand sanitizers and disinfectant stations will be available throughout the clinic. Please don’t make an appointment if you have any signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, cough, cold, flu, shortness of breath, or fever.



An exam & consultation costs $85, and an acupuncture treatment costs $90. So your first visit would be $175. But for a limited time only you can get a free exam and consultation if you follow the below instructions and book an appointment online.

Get Well & Do Right!

Each year I donate over 10% of my Clinic profits to charities that benefit veterans injured in combat our country.  I’m a provider for the Veterans Community Care Program.

Health Insurance

I’m in-network and accept Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Care First, Federal BCBS, Cigna and United Health Care. I also accept insurance from other companies as long as your policy covers acupuncture. Does having insurance coverage affect your decision to get acupuncture ?  If so, please don’t make an appointment until you call your company and ask the following:

(1) Does the policy have an acupuncture benefit? If yes, is there a deductible?
(2) Has the deductible been met? If not, how much remains to be paid? Is there a yearly maximum on acupuncture coverage?

It’s much faster if you call yourself, but our biller can check your coverage if you don’t mind waiting a week. Please click this link to fill out the insurance verification form.

How to make an appointment 

Step 1. Open the online appointment calendar by clicking the link near the bottom of this page and  select a date and time that’s open. If you wish to come in sooner than the dates available, pick the next opening that works for you and add a comment that you’d like an earlier date and time if there’s a cancellation. Be sure to list several options.

Step 2. Look for an appointment confirmation email. It will have a password and link to access six online forms: a Health History Intake Questionnaire, a Consent Form, a Recommendation for Diagnostic Examination, a Fees & Payments Policy, an Insurance Billing Form, an a Covid Informed Consent Form.

Step 3. Fill out and e-sign all six forms. Go over each question carefully and fill in every question even if you don’t think they relate to your health concerns. Once you click submit you’ll get an email thanking you for completing them. If you don’t it means you left something out or forgot to e-sign one or more forms. Allow 10 to 15 minutes to fill out the forms (on a computer, not a cell phone). If you don’t have time to complete the forms, please wait until you do to book your appointment. 


(A) If you have any signs or symptoms of a respiratory infection, cold, flu, sore, throat, or fever; (B) If you don’t have time to fill out the forms IMMEDIATELY; and (C) If you don’t want acupuncture if your insurance doesn’t cover it, but you haven’t followed the above suggestions under “Health Insurance” to find out. 


Please don’t hesitate to email, or text me if you have questions. I promise to respond quickly. Sorry I don’t have a receptionist so will not be able to take or return calls when I’m with patients
