Ratings for Michael D. Corradino


Dr. Corradino has made an incredible difference in my life. His skills as a healthcare provider are amazing. I have been introduced to a whole new field of medicine and I am so happy to be treated with acupuncture and natural medicine. I have smoked for a period of 10 years, during which I quit twice. First time I quit it was very unpleasant and required all my will power, I was very short tempered and intolerable to the people around me, I relapsed after an year and a half. Second time I quit I was sick for a week, which helped, but did find it very difficult to be around smokers. Dr. Corradino treated me for a period of 3 weeks, two treatments per week. The first two weeks of my treatment I was still smoking, but I gradually started smoking less. I stopped smoking on Jan 3rd, during my last week of treatment. After I quit smoking to my amazement my body wasn't craving nicotine, i did not need nicotine gum or patches, I was happy and my lungs felt very good!
