Mr. Abels is very attentive. I've been seeing him for a while now to help me deal with general stress and an herniated disc. His treatments are definitely helping me. I highly recommend him.

He met me at the door and we were off to the exam room. He asked me about my ailments and then I showed him what I was trying to tell him ;) Sometimes it’s easier that way for me. Then I laid out on the table which was warm and cozy and he began pricking me, not an issue. He hooked me up to the stimuli and it was lights out, I was down for the count. He returned later to finish me off with massage and I didn’t want to leave. He’s got great hands, gets down into the muscles! This was my first visit with Dan and I will be back for more!

Excellent as always. Dan listens, ask questions, then acts. Magic hands found the sore spot on the back.

I go to Dr. Labels primarily for my back which troubles me from time to time. I find that my back feels a lot better after each session. I also agree with others who have said that Dr. Labels explains things well and is extremely friendly.

I had my first session with Dr. Abels yesterday to treat frozen shoulder (also my first accupuncture session ever). Even though he warned me I might be a bit sore after treatment, I just had my most pain-free night in over a week. Additionally, lateral range of motion in my shoulder has been decreasing for weeks, even with physical therapy, and now I can raise my arm twice as high as I could before the visit. Dr. Abels is fantastic -- he listens well, explains well, and has a warm, positive demeanor. He's made me a believer in accupuncture and I'm looking forward to my next visit!
