Dr. Santiago Sifre
THE SIFRECENTER: ACUPUNCTURE, CHINESE & INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE
Dr. Sifre has dedicated his entire career to providing the highest level of acupuncture, Chinese and functional medicine and guidance to his patients. Comprehensive medical acupuncture© is his core approach to reaching the most complete results in mind-body functioning. This intensive level of treatment addresses specific root causes through a thorough health evaluation and multi-layer treatment, as opposed to treating just the symptoms. His treatments are guided by classical examination principals like tongue and pulse diagnosis, and by the biochemistry of the patient.
"The comprehensive medical acupuncture experience utilizes the classical examination method of the pulse-taking and tongue examination, as well as the patient's biochemistry to guide the treatment process."
