Commitment to Patient-Centered Care
“My idea of a successful care plan is to help patients understand the potential and limitations of acupuncture on their path to better health, and to help them coordinate and transition with other modalities at their disposal.”
Uli has expertise in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Areas of interest are orthopedic and biomedical acupuncture, having completed in 2006 the Biomedical Acupuncture Institute Course for Pain Management. He likes to work with patients suffering from chronic and acute musculoskeletal and functional pain, neuropathy and soft tissue injuries.
