His clinic stopped prescribing medication mid 2018. He was a good doctor who subcommed to DEA pressures. So unfortunate that pain doctors, let alone medi-cal pain doctors, are increasingly hard to find for patients who really need legitimate pain management.

Horrible scheduling and receptionist. There is NO WAY to contact this clinic other than leaving voice mails on his numerous google voice accounts; which is down right showing ZERO compassion towards the patients!!

Worst Doctor I have ever had the misfortune of encountering. Never spent more than 5 minutes with me, and during that 5 minutes he was on the phone being rude to other patients. A real dirt bag.

Dr. Aachi seems like a very busy-body but do not worry. He is DEFINITELY paying attention to every word you say. I very much appreciate that he not only listens but understands my concerns. He is helping me achieve my goal it took my previous doctor 2 years to barely embrace. I am post-chemo and in constant pain however I do no want to end up dependent on pain meds, so the 1st visit he already came up with a plan for me to live a healthy and uncompromising life. Thank you, Dr. Aachi!

I just Love Dr Aachi!! He is wonderful as my pain management Doctor! He is using Acupunture to help with my severe low back pain (compression fractures/Osteoporosis). He is helping me get off the strong pain killers. I have been a longtime patient of another doctor who only just kept prescribing higher doses of very strong medications! Never offered anything like Acupunture, it's so wonderful!!! It gives my pain a way out of my body! Not just masking the pain thru the fog of heavy narcotics!!!
