Dr. Connell's Care Philosophy

Richard A. Connell, DOM is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist who uses acupuncture to treat acute and chronic pain. He measures his success by achieving lasting results and making positive changes in peoples lives. His amazing pain relief success can be attributed to several factors. First his training and experience includes thousands of hours of specialized acupuncture techniques proven to eliminate pain. Many of his most effective and specialized pain relieving techniques he developed himself and are not available from any other practitioners. Dr Connell also takes extra steps to ensure that the treatment itself doesn't contribute to any pain a patient may be experiencing. He uses extremely thin acupuncture needles, even by acupuncture standards, thus making his acupuncture treatments virtually painless. In many instances, pain relief can be immediate and patients have even reported a euphoric sensation during the acupuncture treatments.

Dr. Connell says...

Richard A Connell, DOM is a pain specialist and Licensed Acupuncturist.

He is nationally board certified (Highest NCCAOM Diplomat status) in Oriental Medicine. He has over fifteen years of experience successfully treating common and complex pain issues with Acupuncture and Eastern Medicine, both as a Licensed Primary Care Physician and as a Licensed Acupucturist. Dr Connell keeps up with current research and utilizes the best and most appropriate techniques for the safe, natural and effective treatment and rehabilitation of all types of pain.

"It seems that a lot of my patients find me after they have tried almost everything else. Nothing has helped or worked as well as they hoped or they didn't like the answers they received from other healthcare providers. Maybe they didn't like the drugs or painkillers they were prescribed. It is extremely gratifying to be able to help people with health problems that they thought were beyond help or that they feared they just had to live with."
