Private and Clean
Ginkgo Wellness offers a different experience than the local hospitals. We follow policies and guidelines set up in the west so our clinic is much cleaner and the atmosphere is much more calm than locally run facilities. And we adhere to personal identity privacy laws. Your medical information is protected and kept private and confidential at all times.
Cleanliness and high quality treatments help you feel relaxed and have confidence that everything is safe and effective. Proper disposal of medical waste (mostly acupuncture needles) and hand washing before AND after treatment ensures your safety.
Dr. Evan Pinto and his team of bilingual medical school interns have been trained in Clean Needle Technique. Each needle is sterilized separately and disposed after one use. We never re-use needles. Alcohol swabbing is performed for each acupoint. And all rooms are organized and neat to boost your serenity.
