This was my first time seeing Dr Loch. i saw him based on great experiences that my friend always sees him. i was very impressed with how Dr Loch thought outside the box to test for things and suggest things that might be causing my current problems, things that no other specialists have thought of.

This was my first time using acupuncture. everyone at the office was very kind, compassionate and so very helpful. Dr Chandler listened to me and explained what he would be able to do in helping my body recover from car accident. This has been helping me and get my body to relax. He even helped improve my overall mood wel being. I am now a fan of acupuncture and definitely a fan because of the treatment and service I received through Providence Health Care. I have an amazing team helping me get better!

The only negative I had was that I felt that the notes on the supplements he provided me were prepared prior to our conversation. It appeared that he had a set list of supplements that he may give most cancer patients. It did not include the information on other supplements that we discussed. Also, after the visit I wondered if he was looking at the correct studies on the negative effects of Glutamine to cancer. I think he was showing me glutamine and neuropathy. I will call to clarify.
