Dr. Tammi D. Davis, a Family Physician and Medical Acupuncturist in the Baltimore area, recognized as Baltimore’s Top Doctor for Integrative/Complementary Medicine by Baltimore Magazine, treats a wide variety of medical and emotional conditions.
Dr. Davis integrates multiple modalities including Medical Acupuncture, Dietary Supplements, Essential Oils (topical and aromatherapy), Traditional Allopathic Medicine, and Western Herbs if appropriate. Dr. Davis, a Board Certified Family Physician trained in traditional medicine, has found that traditional medications and treatments can sometimes fail or have side effects that cause more harm than good. Many patients suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis, allergy and sinus problems, chronic pain, fatigue, menstrual problems, etc. that may not respond to medications. There are also many people that cannot tolerate the side effects of medications, or may have contraindications to certain medications.
The philosophy of Dr. Davis’ practice is to address all spheres of a person’s health issues including the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual aspects. When someone has a chronic illness, it almost certainly will affect mood, sleep, appetite, stamina, and relationships.
Acupuncture is often useful either as an adjunct or as a primary course of treatment. When a patient seeks acupuncture treatment for a problem, a PHYSICIAN ACUPUNCTURIST has the advantage of being able to do a thorough medical history and exam, making sure that a serious underlying condition is not overlooked.
Acupuncture is often used for the following conditions: Acute & Chronic Sinusitis, Dental Pain & Facial Pain, Insomnia, Bowel Problems, Tennis Elbow/Carpal Tunnel, Allergy Problems/Asthma, Vocal Cord Problems, Esophageal Spasm & Gastritis, Neuropathy, Neuralgias, Fatigue/Anxiety/Depression, Arthritis, Vertigo/Stroke Rehab, Bell’s Palsy, PMS/Infertility, Back/Neck Pain/Sciatica, Headache & Migraines and Smoking Cessation.
Dr. Davis sees patients for medical acupuncture treatments by appointment only in her Owings Mills, MD office. An extensive medical and acupuncture history is done at the initial visit, as well as an appropriate exam. Dr. Davis allows ample time for appointments and will help coordinate care with patient’s primary care doctor and any specialists involved in their care if needed. Dr. Davis recognizes each patient as unique and she feels that it is important to take time to listen to her patients and to understand their individual concerns.
Dr. Davis is accepting new patients at this time for medical acupuncture and/or integrative medicine consultations. The first visit is 2 hours and includes an extensive consultation and acupuncture treatment; subsequent visits are 1 hour. The reason for the extended visit time is that she feels that in a traditional primary care practice, the patient’s concerns are often not met due to too little time, the provider is often so busy entering data into a computer that they don’t really “see” the person in front of them, there is not enough time face to face with the provider because they are rushed, and trying to leave a message for the doctor is often futile. Dr. Davis answers all phone calls herself.
In order to spend plenty of time with each of her patients, Dr. Davis does not accept insurance. Payment is expected at time of service. However, Dr. Davis gives each patient a completed claim form for each visit to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement. Medicare does not cover acupuncture, but there are some insurance companies that do.
Dr. Davis has had great success integrating medical acupuncture, Standard Process dietary supplements, Mediherb herbal products, doTerra essential oils, and topical compounded pain creams into her practice.
