    My son has congenital torticollis that failed to respond to physical therapy, occupational therapy, stretching, and and taping. I approached Dr. Fricke after trying all of those treatments. As a pediatrician, I carefully reviewed the options of different acupuncturists. Dr. Fricke was my choice despite that he is not in our insurance plan. Within the first month, I noticed much improvement. Dr. Fricke also has wonderful bedside manner. Our young son is not afraid of him. We are so appreciative to have Dr. Fricke for our son.

    It has been a great experience working with Dr. Fricke. He has been helpful in guiding us and providing various therapies to help my child overcome his torticollis. We plan to continue to use Dr. Fricke's services for other ailments that my child has. Thank you so much Dr. Fricke.

    I was struggling with an athletic injury from lifting for months and Walter has totally turned me around. With a 3 stage progression plan, I no longer have any pain in my back and am back to lifting. I plan to continue coming to help prevent future injury and help my body recover.

    I was experiencing neck and upper back pain for a few months. After meeting with my Sports Medicine Dr and a Pain Management Dr regarding a cortisone shot, I decided to try acupuncture. The results regarding my acupuncture experience have been outstanding. The pain has been reduced drastically and I am able to perform many of the tasks that I had been avoiding. Excellent service, Excellent results. I highly recommend giving acupuncture a try before resorting to steroid injections or surgery.

    He's great! I was skeptical at first and afraid of attempting new things especially involving needles, but he has made this experience not only positive but enlightening. I came in and after a week I feel the difference. You will not go wrong, if you want a great acupuncturist and pain management physician, he's the one for you. He definitely won me over. Thanks again Dr Walter

    Really cool guy, knows his stuff. Great conversationalists, very funny. Great doctor, when I came in the first time I was completely terrified. But after meeting him, my nerves weren't as frazzled. He explained the process in a way that put my mind at ease. My back pain has always been a big issue for me, but after one visit I've felt better than I ever had in years.
