It is my pleasure to recommend David as an acupuncturist. Overall, David is skillful, knowledgeable, dedicated, and caring and has the ability to ask appropriate questions that will lead to a precise diagnosis. His sensitivity and concern for others helps him to detect health problems and make his patients feel comfortable and safe. David is very patient and clear in his communication, as well as neat and ethically impeccable. At a personal level, David has a pleasant personality and puts in a lot of extra research and attention to help his patients feel well. I therefore feel he will not disappoint anyone seeking his help to feel better, and I can offer only the highest recommendation for David.
One day a couple of months ago, I was walking in a parking lot and somehow managed to sprain my ankle rather badly. I made a difficult journey home, by which time the side of my leg was bruised from the top of my foot to halfway up my calf. It looked horrible, and the pain and swelling were quite severe.
My neighbor, David Oorbeck, who is an acupuncturist, brought me a Chinese herbal poultice and packed it over the egg-sized ankle. I’ve sprained my ankle many times before, but never had such a quick recovery. By morning it was merely swollen. He applied the poultice again, and in addition gave me three acupuncture needles. The pain went away quickly. I was amazed at the effectiveness of the herbs he gave me, which dramatically shortened my recovery time. A month later you’d never know it happened.
