Dr. Akopyan has been my doc for every little and big dis-ease I've come across in the past four years. I went to him when I first began studying TCM myself. I've been to many TCM docs and I feel the most comfortable with his techniques and his seriousness / humorous way of addresses my concerns.
If you are looking for an acupuncturist you want someone who is going to make your visit less stressful and give you results. Dr. Akopyan does just that. He has a really easy personality and makes you feel at home at his office. He spends a good deal of time with each patient, which is rare to find these days. He really listens and addresses all your concerns. Sometimes I just need to talk and get a balanced perspective, and he's open to that as well. After he examines you and asks questions he is full of knowledge, home-remedies and information to help you through your dis-ease. His acupuncture technique is very gentle and he'll make you laugh through it...:)
