I have known Tom for a few years, but first saw him after a car accident. Through acupuncture, Tom was able treat issues in my back that neither massage nor chiropractic treatments were able to. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Etges is a gifted and compassionate doctor. I appreciate the way he listens to my needs and develops a unique approach to deal with whatever problem I am struggling with.
It is rare to find a doctor with the experience, compassion and wisdom that you will find in Dr. Tom Etges. I have used a number of acupuncturists for severe back pain and Dr. Etges is by far the best. His knowledge of medicine made it easy for him to understand the issues and support the work of my other medical providers.
Dr. Etges is always present, listening and sharing his skills from both a background in Western and Eastern medicine. He has a great bedside manner, and is willing to discuss the plan for your health care and pain management. I have directly experienced his skills in diagnosis and treatment.
What a joy to have someone that I could communicate with, who took the time with me to treat me as a whole person and not just a set of symptoms.
It is such a rare pleasure and gift to have such a well educated and balanced doctor and human being in our midst. The combination of skills with attention to my specific health issues is so appreciated, especially in these challenging times.
