Dr. Patricia Lew, L.Ac., DAOM
Acupuncturist, President of Alamo Heights Wellness
Douglas Suffield, L.Ac., MAOM, Dipl.OM.
Doug has always pushed himself to be the best he could be, whether in the classroom, in the gym, or on the golf course; after a year in Gainesville, he knew that a change was necessary if he was going to reach his full potential as an acupuncturist.
In 2017, Doug and his lovely fiancee moved to Austin, Texas in order for Doug to pursue his passion and education at one of the top acupuncture and Oriental Medicine schools in the country: AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine.
During his time at AOMA, Doug was able to learn from some of the best teachers, doctors, and acupuncturists in the country. In his 3rd and final year, he had the amazing opportunity to treat Veterans during a 6 month internship at the Central Texas Veterans Affairs Hospital. Veterans have always held a special place in Dougs’ heart as his uncle served in the Marines during the Korean War, and his cousins continued to serve in the Marines during the Gulf and Afghanistan wars. His passion for serving others and giving back to those who fought to protect the United States and her freedoms has been and will continue to be a life long pursuit of Dougs. While his focus and expertise are on the treatment of stress, chronic pain, musculoskeletal disorders, soft tissue, and sports injuries; Doug has also started apprenticing under Dr. Lew regarding homeopathy, allergies, and the treatment of complex autoimmune disorders.
