There is not enough good stuff to say about this place! I have suffered from neuropathy and other nerve related issues. Medicine was not helping, so I decided to try acupuncture! Man what took me so long to do it! Not felt this good in years! I would highly recommend this place to anyone with issues that Medicine just doesn't seem to be working.

Dr. Skeleton is wonderful. I do not do well with needles in general. He made having acupuncture done very easy. He is a master at what he does. I've had 3 treatments so far for migraines and it seems to be working. I suffer from chronic migraines, cluster and aura types. I'm still in treatment but I am very positive for a migraine free outcome.

dealt with trigeminal neuralgia for years. ready to seek the brain operation to resolve the problem. Dr Skelton was able to settle the nerve down and eliminate the pain in 4 visits. Have had NO face pain since Feb end 2021. NO more of the crazy medicines that had all kinds of side effects Life has been great! Dr Skelton has been a miracle for me. It is now July of 2022. some pain is returning but I am seeking additional treatment. Having very positive results. Tri gem is a life long problem but i now know where to get relief!

I went to the doctor because my backs been hurting for about 10 years. I was referred to this doctor by a friend. My work is very physical, I work different jobs that require physical activities. I got acupunctured about 2-3 times and I can feel the difference already. If I would have to say in 1 - 10 scale, 1 being not hurting, and 10 being in major pain, my pain was at around 8 before I went to him. Now I feel more in 2 zone and I can clearly see the difference. I highly recommend him to anyone that is in similar situation.

This place is amazing! Wonderful staff!! My treatment was explained thoroughly. I was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy which is a facial paralysis and began acupuncture treatment at The Acupuncture Clinic within a week and started to see improvement within the first session! I am a month out from when I began this and I am back to about 85% recovered, will continue to be treated until my face is back to 100%! I am so pleased with the professional service provided and the compassion shown to me during this very traumatic time in my life. Thank you!!!

Outstanding treatment in a lovely old house. Dr. Skelton is very personable, sometimes sharing fun stories from his travels in years past...and is generous with treatment - probably the best acupuncture I've ever received. Thanks for keeping us healthy! :)

He was my doctor at the MBI in Athens Ga
 I have MS and was having bad nerve pain in my back and also having Tri-Geminal Pain.  
 The acupuncture helped me so very much!!
 The pain in my back after 6 or so visits Stopped altogether!!  That was a Miracle to me!!
 I totally believe in Acupuncture!
 I recommendation all the time!!
 But unfortunately the MBI shut down in Athens!  
 I'm glad to know that his practice is still going!  And people are being helped!

Dr Skelton & his staff are amazing & wonderful. Expert care with a compassionate, caring touch. My husband went to him with Neuropathy problems. The treatments helped provide some pain relief and prevented further nerve damage. He's had treatments here consistently for about 2 years. The atmosphere here is VERY relaxing and comfortable! They have contributed greatly to my husband's quality of life. I have no doubts that if acupuncture is able to treat a situation, that I will get the best care possible here!

This place is the healing ????! It is like your body’s healing energy is unchained. Sort of like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz...you have always had the power of you only just believe! I am a gal of fact and science but this is pretty close to magic after doctoring for so many years. This heals the underlining condition not the symptoms.

I started seeing Dr. Skelton about 7 years ago and his treatments have always been so helpful for a variety of stress related and inflammatory issues. The benefits have always been quick and sustained. Bill is simply an amazing healer. I now make acupuncture an integral part of my health and wellbeing.

Stop being judgmental. You're supposed to provide a service. You're not a trained psychologist and should stop acting like you know more than you do about an individual patient.

By Melinda Evans on Oct 15, 2019

Wonderful experience. Dr Skelton is very skilled & knowledgeable. Everyone there is very courteous & professional. First visit but so far ???????? two thumbs up!!

By Gail Simmons on Oct 03, 2019

It's been a few years since I've seen him but I found him to be very judgmental. Would not go back to him.

I began going to the Acupuncture Clinic four years ago after seeing countless doctors for a severe concussion and feeling very discouraged. Dr. Skelton is a very gifted acupuncturist, extremely knowledgeable in his field, personable, kind and funny. He provides encouragement and support visit after visit. His office and staff are so welcoming. I highly recommend the Acupuncture Clinic to everyone!

I have been a patient of Bill Skelton for more that 20 years. I was having neck pain and was unable to turn my head. I don't like taking medications, so I just "lived with it" until I couldn't any longer. With one treatment, I was significantly better. My husband typically avoids any doctor, but one day he woke up unable to stand up straight without a lot of pain in his back. I gently suggested, then insisted he give Bill a call. Again, immediate relief, and made a believer out of my husband! Over the years, I have had various ailments, from sinus, migraines, neck, and arthritis in my hands, and Dr. Skelton always comes through. He genuinely cares about his patients, and his bedside manner, warmth, and knowledge of Acupuncture are astonishing. Columbia is lucky to have such a gifted Acupuncturist. His office is extremely relaxing, and his staff are the absolute best! They are calm, competent and caring, and always greet me with a smile, making me feel so welcome. I always look forward to my visits, with my pain relieved and a smile back on my face! If you are having chronic or first time pain, give Bill a call. You will be happy you did, and wishing you had seen him sooner!

I have been a patient of The Acupuncture Clinic for seven years and have been treated for multiple issues. Dr. Skelton is very knowledgeable, professional, and truly cares about his patients. His office staff is friendly and well-organized. Every time I visit, I leave feeling much better. I highly recommend them.
