Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Danesh "Pain medication is not the answer, but merely masks the symptoms. My goal is to create a bridge between Eastern and Western medicine so patients no longer need to commit to one school of thought, but can receive the benefits of both. I provide a unique care and treatment plan for various pain conditions using a formulated program that embraces acupuncture, gua, sha and cupping COMBINED with the best Western Medicine has to offer such as physical therapy, interventional spine injections, ultrasound guided injections and proper nutrition."
