Dr. Mendake always listens to what is going with me, physically and emotionally. You can tell she really cares about her patients and how she can tailor the treatment to provide maximum comfort. She also will give advice for things you can do at home, like diet adjustments. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Mendake, especially if you are new to the world of acupuncture.

Dr. Mendake takes time to thoroughly understand each patient with deep questioning and analysis of their current health, lifestyle, and symptoms. She uses a combination of Chinese medicine, accupuncture, chiropractic, and herbal supplements in her treatments. She is helping me with anxiety, indigestion, and insomnia to balance out my body. She is very kind and her new office feels peaceful from the moment you enter. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for holistic or naturopathic medicine as an alternative to traditional healthcare.

Dr. Mendake has been so wonderful to work with! I started seeing her 2 months ago for a whole list of issues and most of them have already been resolved or are on the mend! Tirtha is an incredible practitioner who is well rounded and has many different healing modalities to draw from. She truly takes the time to focus on each individual and their individual needs, which I feel is hard to find in practitioners these days. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to find a more holistic approach to healing their body. She has been such a blessing and I couldn't be happier with my results.
