Patient Testimonials

As both a patient and colleague, I recommend Dr. Jamie without reservation. He is ethical, compassionate, experienced and knowledgeable. You won't find a better DOM!

Yvonne Campbell, LCSW, Therapist


Since I have studied acupuncture, I really appreciate the expert depth of knowledge Dr. Jamie McLaughlin has of both Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine. He is an excellent clinician and practitioner of Oriental Medicine. As a patient, I have looked long and hard for a practitioner of Oriental Medicine with the depth and breadth of practice that Dr. McLaughlin has... and I have finally found him!!

Dr. Marcy Wertx Thomas, M.D., Patient


I have been a chiropractor for 36 years. I have had acupuncturists treat me many times all over the world. I think Jamie is the best acupuncturist I have ever been treated by. If a patient of mine also could benefit from acupuncture, he is who I send them to.

Dr. Keith Jassy, D.C., Patient


As a licensed clinical social worker, taking a holistic, whole person approach to well-being and recovery is important to my clinical care. I have referred my clients to Dr. McLaughlin to help them better manage chronic stress, anxiety, depression issues, and the body imprints of trauma, as well as, other health issues that impact a person's quality of life. I see changes in my clients that are positive and hear feedback that is reflective of Dr. McLaughlin's excellent, nurturing, caring environment that honors each person's experiences and needs. I am grateful for the support that he offers to my clients and the exceptional care that adds to my clinical work.

I have known Dr. Jamie McLaughlin for over two years and have been his patient for most of the time. I have been a nurse for over 35 years and while I think myself open minded, I had seen others that had adverse outcomes from other Acupuncture practitioners. I suffer from autoimmune diseases as well as liver, pancreas and kidney problems and began to see Dr. McLaughlin for these problems. On my first visit, I found him friendly and was an attentive listener when I described my health problems. When I started working with him, we identified the target areas and re-evaluate them each visit so that we can tailor my treatments to current problems. I noted a 50% decrease in my chronic GI problems in three. I have continued to have treatments every two to three weeks and my chronic pain has gone from a constant pain level of 6-7 out of 10 to 1-2 out of 10. I rarely need any medications such as Ibuprofen and am very satisfied with my pain levels. I have had this pain for over 25 years and this has been the first time I have been able to consistently keep it below a 3 on the pain scale. When I have had other problems such as a migraine that had lasted 9 days, he was able to give me complete relief in 3 hours after one treatment. I have found Dr. McLaughlin to be a caring, honest and knowledgeable practitioner and has always been able to find time to help me with my healthcare needs as well as always listening t me when relating to my healthcare problems. I have referred several people to hima nd they have also mentioned to me that their treatments were improving their life.

It has been an absolute delight to be able to collaborate with this bright, talented and extremely patient focused acupuncturist. Prior to meeting Dr. McLaughlin, many of my patients had exhausted traditional treatment modalities for many common chronic ailments without resolution. Jamie was able to make a significant progress with pain-free non addictive alternatives. He is a diligent, organized, conscientious professional. I am grateful that Richmond now has this important team member for chronic health management and wellness promotion.

While I have not personally experienced Dr. Jamie's talents in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, we have shared many clients in the last couple of years. Several of our mutual clients have professed to me how much Dr. Jamie has helped them and their families. I don'ts exactly know what it is that is different about he services that he provides but several people have commented to me that he is "way better", and "way more advanced" in his training than other Doctor's of Oriental Medicine/Acupuncturists that they have worked with. Furthermore, many have commented that he is really practicing his own healing art that is above and beyond the typical acupuncture experience. I feel completely confident referring clients to Dr. Jamie knowing that they are in uncommonly good hands.

I've had gastro-intestinal issues for more than a decade. I've been to all types of doctors and therapists. I've had endoscopies, colonoscopies, ultrasounds, scans... no one could help me or give me any answers. Not kidding, ONE session with Dr. Jamie and my pain, my reflux, my chronic gas, belching, and bloating.... gone!! All I can say is GO SEE HIM!!!!

Rebecca M., Patient


Thanks for the HEALING! From the moment I arrive there is a welcome, a gentle peace and the gift of healing, really healing. Thanks Dr. Jamie!

So grateful to have a doctor who genuinely cares about total health, his patient's well-being, and is willing to dig deeper to get to the root of the problem for his patients. A TRUE HEALER!!!!

Terri M., Patient


I have been struggling with hip and back problems and have been a life-long patient of physical therapy after having a lower back surgery 20 years ago. Dr. Jamie has helped me experience relief and a pain free lifestyle. It is amazing that he literally relieved pain in my right hip in one hour what I have been trying to resolve for the past 3 years using other forms of pain management. It has not come back. Wow!

Ericka B., Patient


Dr. Jamie helped me with horrible gastrointestinal issues: acid reflux and regurgitation, belching, pain in throat and burning in my stomach. I received acupuncture treatments and my belching subsided and each day thereafter, my symptoms went away a little more each day. I have been able to get off of medications. Thanks Dr. Jamie!!!

Andrea M., Patient


I went to Dr. Jamie seeking help and support with overall health and wellness. He supported me in getting back on track with nutrition and herbal consultation to support my wellness needs with blood pressure and metabolism. I am starting to notice amazing changes in my energy and sense of well-being. Just enjoying feeling good.

Debbie B., Patient


Dr. Jamie is very caring, gentle, and patient. He gives you a peaceful and balanced feeling from the moment you meet him. I very highly recommend seeing him with any health concern or just for overall well-being and health maintenance.

Carrie G., Patient


Dr. Jamie is kind, compassionate, humble yet absolutely genius. He is caring, takes time to know and to educate his patients. Truly one of the most knowledgeable healers I've ever met. I highly recommend you at least set up a consultation and go talk with him if you have any health issues or concerns.

Cathy B., Patient


Honestly, I was skeptical at first, but after Dr. Jamie's acupuncture treatment (one session) gave me more relief from my chronic low back pain than 3 weeks of ongoing P.T. sessions. Seriously, ONE treatment, and my back pain and sciatica were 100% gone.

Kelly, F., Patient


Receiving acupuncture from Dr. McLaughlin not only gave me head to toe pain relief and helped to reverse the muscle weakening and wasting I was experiencing from the progression of Fibromyalgia, but it also helped to restore my mental clarity, motivation and overall emotional well-being. I can say I truly wake up feeling rested and enthusiastic about the day ahead and I have the physical strength and endurance to take it on... naturally. What a glorious change it has been! I want to tell everyone to try it, for whatever ails them.

Grady Cannon, Patient


I've had idiopathic neuropathy for 18 years. I've been to neurologists and various specialists all over the country. I was told that nothing could be done for my condition. When I first went to Dr. Jamie I had leg braces on both legs, couldn't walk without a can or my walker on bad days. I had poor balance and numbness in both lower legs and feet. I didn't walk, I shuffled. After three months of treatments with Dr. Jamie.... my braces gone, no need for cane or walker, my pain, numbness in BOTH legs are gone, my balance improved. I walk everywhere now with no problems. My family and friends are amazed. I even went back to my regular neurologist to see what he would say... he could only say, "I don't know, other than it appears to be a medical miracle." I will say, it wasn't a quick fix, I had to go several times each week for three months.... but it worked and I'm ever so grateful.

James D., Patient


Dr. Jamie helped my sister with her Migraines (migraines she'd had almost weekly for 20 years and now no longer has them I might add)... so I thought, what the heck let's see if he can help me with my bad knees and weight problem... after only a few treatments my knee pain is 100% better. I'm continuing to see him for my endocrine system issues, but my metabolism is drastically improving, my energy and sleep quality are better than they've been in years!!! I highly recommend Dr. Jamie for any health concern. Consult with him at least, you'll be glad you did!!

B.T., Patient


I started seeing Jamie McLaughlin's for acupuncture treatment almost 2 years ago. This was not my first time receiving acupuncture however it was my first time being treated by an acupuncturist with the level of education, training and experience that Jamie has. I initially stared treatment with Jamie for hormone imbalance and thyroid issues which caused me to have severe anxiety, fatigue, and many other health problems. From my initial consultation with Jamie I felt 100% confident that he would be able to help me and at complete ease trusting him with my care. It did not take long for me to realize that everything Jamie was doing for me was helping tremendously. Over the past 2 years I have turned to Jamie for treatment for many other things such as neck and back issues, when I have had any illnesses, headaches, etc. Acupuncture is great for everything! I highly recommend Jamie for acupuncture and herbal supplementation; he is extremely knowledgeable and very professional.

Dr. Jamie McLaughlin's acupuncture treatments have helped me with a wide variety of issues. TMJ, IBS, pain in my neck and hip that did not respond to other treatments, upper respiratory/sinus infections, anxiety and difficult sleeping to name a few. It's not only his skill as a practitioner...his mere presence is soothing. When I walk in the door to his office, my shoulders immediately drop and I start to relax. In addition to treating me for my current ailments, he's been proactive with his care. His work on my immune system has helped me stave off illness brought home by the kids from daycare, and when traveling. The result of all of this is that I'm off medications, happy and healthier than I've ever been. My doctor is so pleased with the results that she wants to have more of her patients see Dr. McLaughlin! I'm so committed to him that even though I'm moving out of state, I'll see him monthly when I'm in town for business. I simply can't imagine finding any other practitioner that is as amazing to work with, or that is as beneficial to my well-being. I'd be lost without him!
