Please note that Acupuncture is not a primary care medicine in the State of Wisconsin. It is a wonderful complement to Western medicine, but it is not a substitute for it. If you think you have a serious health condition or want a medical diagnosis you need to see a primary care physician. Acupuncture can provide complimentary care for conditions which require a physician’s attention, but it is important that you manage your health with your primary care provider.
