Greetings, you’ve arrived at the patient resource and medical blog for the clinical practice of Dr. Justin Penoyer DACM, LAc, Chinese medicine physician and licensed acupuncturist in San Diego, California.

Prospective Patients

Medicine is as much an art as it is a science, and as a patient you must not only seek out those skilled physicians who achieve clinical results, but also one with the personality and philosophical outlook complimentary to your own.

I am currently accepting new patients from the public on a select basis. If you are interested in Chinese Medicine and would like to present your case please send a detailed email using my contact form or directly at justinpenoyer {at} gmail.com.

What To Expect

I operate an evidence-based primary care practice and see a wide range of patients and complaints. Most cases short of an emergency can be effectively treated with acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary and lifestyle modifications, and when appropriate I may recommend a supplement, order lab testing, or refer out to a specialist. I see patients for one or several treatments for pain or injury, however many of patients are individuals and families I’ve been seeing for years. Having a skilled physician who knows you well is a valuable commodity.

I look at life with a wide-angle view and serve my patients in the time honored tradition of family doctors who knew their patients personally and often treated multiple generations of family members. My greatest assets as a clinician derive from a medical philosophy grounded in classical Chinese medicine, logic, and natural science. I utilize my diverse multidisciplinary background and the ability to draw upon personal experience to offer patients remedies and treatment strategies that are both practical and effective.

In every case, we will work together to relieve your symptoms in the short term as I provide the education needed to prevent or manage your health in the long term. There are always seasonal, physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual components that must be considered—the longer we work together the greater my ability to customize your treatment care and  supply insight into the nature of your health—its strengths and challenges—so that you may form a comprehensive long-term self-care regiment that is properly balanced to provide for your unique needs.
