Five stars across the board: WAIT TIME: none. Seen on time, check in was very smooth. CARE: Excellent--thorough/comprehensive intake. Attentive, professional care anchored in broad knowledge base & expertise. PERSONAL EXPERIENCE: Primarily, I came in due to a minor injury I had recently sustained. Resulting tightness & discomfort from muscular constriction significantly relieved. --not to mention the secondary benefit of some major stress reduction as each treatment has left me super relaxed! ENVIRONMENT: Calm, soothing environment; well appointed decoration/furnishings LOCATION: convenient location; plenty of parking SCHEDULING: Online booking makes scheduling a cinch. INSURANCE: Another plus: in network with my insurance CONCLUSION: Highly recommended

I just moved to SF and was looking for an acupuncturist who could pick up where I left off with my previous treatment. The intake process was very smooth and thorough with Dan and I felt great coming out of the session. I'm looking forward to more treatments!

You can never go wrong with Dr. Abel, he is always on point! But in all seriousness, love coming here and always seem to feel better a few days afterwards so feel confident in being a long term repeat customer!

First time to accupuncture, and Daniel made it a great experience. Friendly, professional, and it helped with my neck pain. I'll be going back.

Excellent complete digital interaction in the beginning: registering, insurance approval, scheduling, forms, and text reminders. Human interaction even better: warm welcome, seen earlier than scheduled, nice exam room with soothing music. And I walked out with physical issue dramatically improved by 90%. Looking forward to my next visit.

I think Dan is fantastic. I've been going here for a while - first for a spinal injury, and later for stress-related injuries in my shoulderblade. Dan's bedside manner is fantastic and the actual experience is wonderful and restorative. Highly recommended.
