Business Description: Visconti Acupuncture & Natural Medicine was founded in 2003 in Clermont as an alternative to the modern "disease management" based "healthcare system". Our clinic is founded on the principles that the person in need is a whole person, not a bunch of parts like a car. We treat the person not just a foot, a symptom, a diagnosis or a lab value. We listen and look at the patient as an individual as we are all different and the treatment plan for each person should be different- there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to any type of medicine. We work to restore proper balance and function to the body so the need for medications and even supplements are reduced or eliminated in a safe and effective way. We work to improve and restore peoples' quality of life! About "Doc" Visconti: Michael Visconti, ND, AP is one of 5 practitioners in the State of Florida who has his Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine and an Acupuncture Physician license.
