Dr. David Paton, D.Ac, L.Ac.

My Mission and Commitment is

Who I Am

Dr. David Paton, D.Ac., L.Ac., has been an Acupuncturist and educator for over 25 years. His interest in integrative health care began over 30 years ago with an acute health challenge of his own. Not finding relief from allopathic medicine, David began treatments with an acupuncturist. Integrating Eastern and Western traditions, he found the answer to his health concerns and is excited to share his answers with others. David has provided acupuncture and health coaching in various settings throughout the Baltimore area and teaches at the Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia). He is committed to helping his patients achieve their full potential whether on the field, in their personal life, or in their careers.

My Approach

He is also the founder of Achieve Sports Acupuncture which is dedicated to providing the highest quality of education and care specializing in athletic and orthopedic injuries.

Every patient is unique. That’s why I customize every one of my treatments to fit your needs exactly. Whether it’s an acute nagging pain, or a debilitating sports injury, I will sit down with you, listen to your story, and prepare a customized treatment plan specifically for you.
