“My patients are men and women who have hearing loss and are currently using, or are interested in using hearing instruments (e.g. hearing aids) to help them optimize their hearing abilities. In addition to being a Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioner, I am also a Registered Counselling Therapist, as well as a Certified Audio Engineer, and thus my skill sets compliment each other very well. I enjoy my job thoroughly, because it is intensely satisfying to watch someone's eyes light up when they realize all that they have been missing and are now re-experiencing with my help.
“I provide acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine in a studio at my home on Pandora Avenue, a central location up the block from the "blue medical building" at Cook and Pandora. There is free two hour parking available. My clients range in age from their twenties to elders, and complaints vary from physical to emotional. Some clients also come for help in quitting smoking or losing weight. I also encourage pregnant women to come for pre-birth acupuncture to ease their deliveries and also for help with mid-pregnancy complaints, and then post-partum support. Acupuncture can treat most disorders!
“My ideal client is looking for a professional with the skills and knowledge to treat their initial area of concern as well as address the underlying issues predisposing to injury.
“A recent testimonial: "I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knees and was in constant pain for a long time. The pain got so severe that I could no longer walk and enjoy my daily activities. My physician told me that I need a knee replacement surgery...I was afraid of needles and did not want to try acupuncture. My daughter told me that Peter does "non-needle" acupuncture... My pain was noticeably reduced after one treatment with Peter. After four more treatments, I can walk and enjoy my daily activities without pain, and it has been a few months now." (Chan, Female, 84)

“I provide quick, effective and affordable treatment at Right Point Acupuncture & Herb clinic. I am interested in treating various problems, the greater the challenge, the greater my interest in solving the problem. This gives me a greater sense of genuine achievement. I work hard in finding the key point and the right solution for your treatment which often, makes you feel good as a result of one treatment. I have gained a great deal of successful experience in ear, nose, throat problems, and both internal/ external problems.
“Are you looking for a doctor that is going to get to what is CAUSING all your symptoms instead of just treating symptomatically? This is what I love about what I do. I work with my patients through history and testing to uncover what the root cause of their illness is... Once their weak organ systems have been supported and triggers have been removed the body has an environment that it can heal in. The body's ability to heal itself is truly amazing, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't witness it's work.
