OCOM Clinic in Old Town Chinatown now offers acupuncture services each Saturday. The new Saturday hours, along with the Weekend Specialty Clinic once a month on Sundays, ensure that OCOM patients can receive treatment nearly every day of the month.

Both the clinic and the OCOM Herbal Medicinary will now be open each Saturday between 8:30 AM and 2:00 PM. All acupuncture services — including Group Acupuncture, which starts at $10 — are available on Saturdays.

“Over the past year, many of our patients have indicated an interest in weekend appointments. We hope that additional hours on Saturdays will serve patients who may not otherwise be able to make it in to the OCOM Clinic. An acupuncture treatment is a great way to relax into the weekend!” said Director of Clinical Operations, Miles Sledd.

The doctoral program’s Weekend Specialty Clinic is held one Sunday a month, and provides patients the opportunity to visit with a team of experienced clinicians focusing on specific conditions. The focus this fall is on women’s health, with clinic offerings on October 19, November 16 and December 14. View the Weekend Specialty Clinic schedule for 2014-2015.
