Dr. Etges is such a kind and caring soul. During my first appointment with him, he spoke with me for about an hour or hour and a half. When is the last time a doctor spent that much time with you? I also love that he can treat people using different modalities, for example, functional medicine, Chinese medicine, or traditional western medicine. His acupuncture is the best, and he will do everything he can to get you on the right path.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
