Review for Herban Health, East Palo Alto, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I have worked for about 5 years as a volunteer acupuncturist with Herban Health at the VA in Menlo Park and at Ravenswood Medical Clinic in East Palo Alto. On at least 2 occasions I have taken part in half day seminars on nutrition to educate our patients. In general I think that patients find our services very helpful as evidenced by the healthy attendance at the two clinics that I work. Sometimes I think we try to do too much in the short time we have with patients, especially the Saturday clinic at Ravenswood.

Recruit more volunteers. Limit the number of needles per patient. Limit the number of patients for the Ravenswood Clinic. I think we could provide better service if we saw fewer patients.
