Related to my Sports Medicine and orthopedic acupuncture practice is the treatment of personal injuries.
I treat patients with various injuries caused by auto, motorcycle, and workplace accidents. All worker’s compensation insurance companies and all automobile insurance carriers must pay for my services if related to the injuries. I am also approved by the United States Labor Department for treating all federal employees, such as post office, agriculture department, and energy department. For all personal injury treatments, we bill the insurance companies directly, do all the paperwork in our office and send the reports to the patient’s physician and attorney if needed. You do not need to have regular health insurance.
For patients who are afraid of needles, I use many non-needle techniques such as acupressure, electrical stimulation with external electrodes/patches, cupping, and Tuina massage. Additionally, I can prescribe and prepare Chinese herbal medications which speed up healing and recovery from injuries.
Please note all worker compensation cases require a referral, which can come from your physician, nurse or physical therapist. This referral should be faxed to (508) 792-0400 and include d iagnosis, demographic information, and best contact telephone number.
