David Chen is an acupuncturist practicing in Whittier, CA. Dr. Chen evaluates and treats patients based on the concepts of oriental medicine. Acupuncturists complete their evaluations by getting a patient history and looking at and touching the body. Then, they place very fine acupuncture needles into specific points on the body. Stimulating these points and nerves is how Dr. Chen treats the patients condition. Many of the body's systems respond to acupuncture, and it can treat physical pain as well as emotional stress. Dr. Chen has been practicing since 1978. The goal of our office is to provide the best services and the most affordable cost.
