Hear From Past Patients

  • I recently experienced acupuncture for the first time with Dr. Dawn. I was nine months pregnant at the time. She has created a serene and comfortable space and she explained things so well. The treatment was gentle and I was relaxed throughout the session. Thank you Dr. Dawn!

  • I have had two treatments so far and I can already tell a huge difference in my anxiety and tension. Dr. Dawn’s energy is so calm and caring. I highly recommend giving her treatments a try.
    Kayla Taylor
  • I sought out acupuncture because of nerve pain in my hip and leg which two rounds of physical therapy did not eliminate. Nerve pain is not a quick fix, but I had significant relief after the first treatment and it continues to improve. My time on the acupuncture table is very relaxing; much like a massage without the rubbing! Dr. Dawn is an empathetic listener and very knowledgeable. I trust her to provide the best care and highly recommend her.
    Janet Woolard
  • I reached out to Dr. Dawn specifically to encourage the healing of a meniscus tear/knee clean up surgery. That has happened, and additionally she's helped other areas for my sense of wellbeing. She's knowlegeable and skilled, and her care for the patient comes thru in her presence and her communication/teaching. My first real experience with acupuncture - and glad it was with Dr. Dawn!

  • This is my first experience with acupuncture and I was somewhat skeptical, but I was in so much pain due to psoriatic arthritis, I felt I had to try it. I am so glad I did. Dr. Garrison listened to my problems and was very thorough in explaining the treatment. Within weeks she has made significant progress in managing my pain from PsA as well as providing relief for chronic lower back pain. She genuinely cares for her patients and their well-being. I highly recommend Dr. Garrison.
    Vanessa Smith
  • I had problems with my middle back and was in a lot of pain. I stopped in to Carolina Family Acupuncture to see if I could schedule an appointment, and Dr. Dawn saw me right away. She is very easy to talk to and addresses any concerns you might have. I knew my issue was not a quick fix, so I proceeded with 10 sessions. Now I have little or no pain at all. If you have any kind of pain, Dr. Dawn is the one to see.
    B. J. Lathwell
  • I came to Dr. Dawn because I had the shingles virus in my left ear. It caused Bell’s palsy on the left side of my face and a lot of pain on the whole left side of my head. I was referred by the pastor of my church, so I was willing to try to see if I could get relief. After the first 2 weeks of treatment, I could already see much improvement with the Bell’s palsy. I could move the left side of my face better, and the pain had subsided a lot. Now, after a month of treatment, the Bell’s palsy is gone, and I have no pain. I would highly recommend Dr. Dawn Garrison and Carolina Family Acupuncture.

  • I was experiencing pain in my shoulder which kept me from doing routine daily activities. I decided to try acupuncture to see if it would help. I did not experience immediate pain relief but after 6 or 7 sessions I experienced dramatic pain relief.  Dr. Dawn is very patient and listens so she can understand your condition. She explains exactly what treatment she recommends and welcomes any questions that you might have. I highly recommend Carolina Family Acupuncture.

  • Dr. Dawn is caring, knowledgeable and gentle. If you want to see someone who cares and can get to the core of things, see her! I’m a chiropractor and clinical nutritionist and I’m picky who I go to, she’s great!
    Hillary Beth Mower
  • I have had two severe accidents years ago. One was having three fingers on my left hand go through a table saw. They have always been numb and they hurt. The second was I fell off a roof and severely injured my neck. I have not been able to turn my head all the way in either direction. Since I have been coming to Doctor Dawn I can turn my head in both directions with no pain and I have feeling in my fingers. I would highly recommend Dr. Dawn for any physical problems or issues.
