Amazing!!! I would not put my health in anyone else's hands! I have late stage chronic Lyme disease. I have had some really awful struggles and Mark has pulled me through. I am still in treatment but I know compared to other Lyme patients Mark is key to my battle and is making me stronger and helping me tolerate my treatments. I don't know what I would do without Advanced Healthcare! They are helping in saving my life!
Shoulder Pain Gone! – For the past year I have been dealing with pain from Rotator Cuff Tendonitis (irritation & swelling of the tendons of the shoulder). I tried Physical Therapy for 2 months with minimal positive results.
Then one weekend I exacerbated the problem by spreading mulch for several hours. I was in constant pain and nothing seemed to give me relief. I heard that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic shoulder pain so I decided to give it a try. The results were immediate and my pain was relieved by 90% after the first treatment. I have been going to weekly treatments for the past 4 weeks and I am amazed at how much better I feel.
I went to Advanced Health Care Solutions (AHC) which is a family owned business at the corner of Strickland and Creedmoor and talked to them about my issue. They recommended that I have a Digital Thermal Imaging Scan which showed the areas of inflammation around my shoulder and neck area. Then using the scans Dr. Marc Cutler, the Acupuncturist began treatment. Dr. Cutler was professional and knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. His staff was also courteous and attentive to my needs. As background Dr. Cutler is a past President of the North Carolina Acupuncture Association and has operated one of the most successful Acupuncture & Integrative Practices in NC for the past 20 years (see his bio on their website). Fortunately, Acupuncture works great for rotator cuff tendinitis. First, it works by increasing the circulation to the area and decreasing inflammation in the tendons. Secondly, acupuncture stimulates regrowth of the cells and tissues in an injured area. And as I experienced, it helped to reduce my pain significantly which was a huge relief.
Some other Common Conditions treated with Acupuncture are below. I know of someone that went to Dr. Cutler for allergies and was able to stop getting weekly shots for their grass allergies. He is even mowing grass now with no issues!:
* Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
* Back Pain
* Neck Pain
* Knee Pain
* Bells Palsy
* Nerve Pain
* Post Stroke Recovery
* And many other health issues
Head Pounding Pain GONE!!!!!! – So I am some who recently just deals with a lot sinus congestion, which leads to a head ache, which leads to ear pain, which always lead to me to lay down for hours at a from exhaustion.
I am not one who just loads up on medication and Dr.Marc just encouraged me to simply try using holistic medicine just once. After having acupuncture I have tossed the congestion medicine, nasal sprays, tylenol, and BC powder. I do this once or twice a week and I feel AMAZING!!!!!!! The staff is great! The location in so close to everything. I am not just another number at a doctors office who's just going to load me up on meds anyway and send me out the door.
You would be crazy if you didn't go!!!
Holistic Health Care At Its Best !!! – My husband and I both go to Advanced Health Solutions a couple times a week.
We have been going for over a month now and cannot say enough about the care we get when we are there. We appreciate the extra time spent at the beginning talking about our health issues and concerns and how acupuncture could help in our long term health care plan. Marc is very knowledgeable with the procedures; enthusiastic in his practice and the individual care he gives. The digital infrared thermal imaging procedure detects diseases and physical injuries, by showing the thermal abnormalities present in the body. The staff Chris, Ginny and Andy are very friendly, helpful and make us feel welcome every time we go. We believe in what they are doing, as the alternative to traditional health care. Everyone reacts different but for my experience results were almost immediate. I had inflammation and wrist pain, the swelling has decreased and the pain not so severe. Neck and shoulder pain is at a lower level. My husband is being treated for back pain from a 20 yr old auto accident. He also has a torn rotator cuff that with treatment, the pain level has gone down.
We abandoned the traditional medical model a long time ago and feel that this is the right place for us to continue on our road to healthy living. Now that we have found Advanced Health Solutions we now know where we are going to go to receive the care we need, whether for acute pain or our long term health care plan.
Journey to Health – As Elson M. Haas saysso well, "Illness represents an invitation to change." When I attended Marc Cutler's seminar at the public library on digestive health, I was at a place where I knew I needed change. The overall poor health I experienced, as well as the burning pains in my stomach and throughout my digestive track, were like warning signs going off in me. I was especially concerned that my prescribed acid reducer, Aciphex, was not taking care of the problem. After a few months of accupuncture treatment I was off the medication and feeling much better. Now, six months later, with continued treatment, the anxiety I was experiencing in my day to day life has been greatly reduced. Recently, even my husband made an off-handed comment, "You are much more calm." A big thanks to the Advanced Healthcare team who have helped me in this journey. I really appreciate their straightforward, easy-going approach toward their clients.
Outstanding Service and Care – Since moving to Raleigh, Advanced Healthcare Solutions (AHS) is the third and certainly the best acupuncture business I have found. Great care is given to create a care plan, work within a budget, and provide outstanding service to patients. Marc Cutler and his staff (specifically Sharon, Chris, Ginny, and Laura to name a few) have demonstrated in the approximate year I have been treated that the patient comes first!
The lobby and treatment rooms are cozy, smell great, and have an incredible healing aura to them. I am a stickler for service and AHS delivers! I actually arrive as early as I can to decompress in the lobby and enjoy a free cup of tea. Even my Marine husband is a big fan of AHS.
A very professional office with a knowlegeable staff – I have been going to this office for 3 months now and yes I did agree to a 1 year contract to better my life. You can not put a dollar amount on the quality of your health if you truly want to get better. They put together a strategy and explained how this worked. As far as the payments they explained the payments and even offered a discount with paying off early. I dont know of any other Dr.'s office that even offers that.
Since I have been going I sleep better feel much less anxiety and I am getting much more knowlegeable on how to eat better and more in tune with my body.
Thank You Marc cutler and your very helpful staff for all your help...
The Bright Spot in My Week – I began with Marc Cutler at AHC in 2004, presenting with multiple physical problems and anxiety disorder. Marc has given me excellent care both with accupuncure, herbal medicine and massage therapy. My physical issues that I presented with are all under control and my anxiety is the lowest it has ever been. I even broke both arms in a fall three years ago and never once took the first pain pill. I recently had a terrible allergic reaction to Advil. I followed physician orders, but knew that Marc would be the positive force of clearing my body of the reaction. That was the case as always. Chris as the front desk is responsive to my messages left on the machine and wonderful at getting me in at a moment's notice. I look forward to every visit for the wonderful peace that comes over my body during accupuncture. Thank you Marc and staff!!!!
Everyone should get acupuncture – This is one of the most beautiful offices I have visited in awhile. It doesn't have the feel of a "doctors" office at all, its more spa-like. Everyone is friendly and they really seem to work like a team. Now that I have been going to see Marc and the staff for a few months, I feel like part of the family. I have a lot of serious health concerns, and they have somehow, and thankfully, addressed them all! I feel 100% better! I really think everyone should get acupuncture. My husband would like to start coming now because he sees how relaxed and stress-free I am now that I've gotten healthier. I definitely recommend them!
Terrible phone manners – Trying to make an appointment here is unbelievable! I have never experienced such unprofessionalism and terrible manners! I don't understand, I just want help with my health problems and instead I'm given attitude by a person named Chris. When I called back with questions, I just received the run around. Too bad there isn't a negative rating because they excel at the negative 5!!!
