Acupuncture LAs Vegas - About Dr. Mitchell

Nothing is worse than watching people suffer. I have a younger sister who many years ago became very sick. My parents took her to doctor after doctor, did medical test after medical test and saw specialist after specialist but no one could help her and she kept getting worse. When conventional medicine did not work, my parents decided to try something unconventional – a doctor of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine named Dr. Wu. After being sick for years, my sister was completely cured with a few months of treatment from Dr. Wu. Could there be any better profession than this where you could help people who might not otherwise be helped? I could not think of anything else I would rather spend my life doing. My mission is to do for every patient what Dr. Wu did for my sister.

QUALITY OF HEALTH CARE

Quality of health care is important. With most patients not trained in medicine, it is difficult for patients to ascertain the quality of health care they are receiving.  Acupuncture and Oriental medicine, in some ways, is different than mainstream western medicine and may initially be more difficult for a patient to understand. For this reason, many patients may be skeptical of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and its efficacy.  Skepticism is GOOD.

As a patient, you have the right and we, as medical professionals, have the responsibility to help you understand, if we can help your case, what will be done to help you, and why. As an associate professor of medicine, experience has taught me the importance of clear communication and education in helping patients, students, and other medical practitioners understand how acupuncture works, how it can be integrated with western medicine and how it can increase quality of life.
