Dr. Etges is your health care partner. He is adept at coordinating his combined therapies with those offered by other local practitioners should specialty care be needed.
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.
“Dr. Etges offers the best of Integrative Medicine on many levels. Having a doctor I trust to oversee my autoimmune condition is in itself, ‘good medicine’. Qualities I admire: compassion, competence, enthusiasm for cutting-edge knowledge, honesty and humility.”
After years of lower back pain, varies back pain issues, and heel bruises, Dr. Etges’s Accupunture has finally helped me feel hopeful that I can resume exercise and fitness at the level I want. He shares his knowledge and insights as we go so I am well informed while getting relief. I believe he is the ONLY doctor who ever addressed all of the comments I wrote on my (very extensive) intake exam. That alone was extraordianary. He has a professional demeanor and at the same time he’s quirky and relaxed, making me feel confident in his skills which is important since I’d never had someone insert needles in me before!
I cannot say enough good things about his attention to detail and ongoing professionalism in his practice. I’m glad I found him and look forward to many years of medical excellence in his practice.
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 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.
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.
