I was referred to Dr Asano from a friend who had gone to him for years. He can target what is ailing you quickly is extremely knowledgeable. His goal is to get you as well as you're willing to work for. That other reviewer who gave negative remarks must have gone to him with a closed mind and purposely not believing that accupunture and herbs could help her to be healed.

My father came down with shingles on his way to San Diego to visit me in the 80's. He refused to see an acupuncturist as he was not familiar with acupuncture. He continued to suffer for months - no energy and much pain in his side/back. Finally he agreed to come back and see Nobu (I was seeing Nobu for myself). My father was cured in 1 session! His energy came back immediately and his pain went away immediately. It was miraculous - even surprised me, someone who knows acupuncture works Sheri Nakken, RN, MA, Hahnemannian Homeopath

If he can't fix your problem right away, he'll tell you that your problem is in your head. I came to really not appreciate this later, when a doctor finally diagnosed me with a genetic disease which requires careful life-long management. Nobu is a really good acupuncturist, but instead of having the courtesy to admit to you when you have a problem he has no experience with and can't cure with acupuncture, he will try and make you feel responsible for your illness (mental problems, etc). He has a psychologist who sits at the front desk, to aid in convincing the unimproved or deteriorating patients that they are crazy. I doubt they ever cured a diabetic or an epileptic with psychology! My disease was hard to diagnose, but he had no right to discredit my symptoms just because he couldn't find the answer. I will never refer anyone to Nobu without a warning. He can treat obvious problems with acupuncture. He is not a good herbalist so don't ingest anything that he mixes up in his office.

I ihave been going to Asano Acupuncture for 10 years. I visit them for everything from a pulled muscle to insomnia and they ALWAYS fix the problem. I have always left this establishment feeling BETTER than when I arrived. Can't go wrong here.
