A Chat with Cerami Integrative Medicine & Acupuncture
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Being an integrative practice, our goal is to work with your other doctors to improve your overall quality of care. We place a lot of attention on nutrition, on lifestyle, and stress management. We treat with acupuncture, herbal medicine & supplements, labs tests... but most of all with caring.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Often, health problems are not isolated to one thing. Our emotional state of wellness and physical activities, diet, environment, etc. combine with our genetics... and unraveling this takes more than the 5 minutes most MDs are willing to spend on patient care. However, their knowledge is valuable. We just need to add to that care..
What do you love most about your job? Everything. I like listening to my patients, seeing their improvement, and most especially, I love to see someone who was once terrified of acupuncture (as I was myself) become its biggest fan..
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? I'm often told that it's a comfort to have someone so sweet and so caring... so knowledgeable. Of course, I cherish this, but my favorite is when I get a skeptic, and they tell me all the reasons the treatment isn't going to work... and then I'm able to change their mind. That's just beautiful!
