Path To Acupuncture:
Dr. Fiorani was introduced to Acupuncture in his early 20's while very sick, and unable to find solutions to his health problems despite many visits with physicians and endless medical exams. After a few months of acupuncture, his health was restored, and realized the true value that acupuncture can bring to our healthcare system. Each medical modality has it's strengths and weaknesses, but combined provides optimal healthcare for all.
We look forward to providing you with the best possible healthcare that you deserve.
