At first visit with Dr. Pentald I was anxious about the needles and the whole process of being “punctured” in the acupuncture process. Well, I did not feel anything – and I had acupuncture treatment before so I can refer to the past. I remember when I was a kid and having a cold the nurse would come home and give me the needle: there were two types of nurses ones that made you feel the shot and some were very good and you would feel barely anything – we used to say that they have a “light hand”. Same with Dr. Pentland, besides all the knowledge he has to master the complex psychological issues, he has a very light hand in administrating the acupuncture treatment. For my case, a moderate ED, after the first visit all symptoms went away just as a switch going off.
