He helped pass legislation to retain acupuncturists as providers in Workers' Compensation and MediCal, and to allow acupuncture professional associations to perform peer review.

He has taught acupuncture orthopedics all over the United States and in Korea.

Very helpful and detailed and practical. Thank you for the great lecture!

Awesome: emphasis on setting a foundation so we are able to think through a case and administer appropriate treatment, giving us extra clinical tools (I especially love the manual therapy and exercises, and I did not learn these in school), and giving us LOTS of practical tips for patient relationships/practice building/insurance billing, etc! So well-rounded and useful!

Awesome course. So insightful. Wish I could do MORE topics of body injury areas with Dr. Wells. I can't wait to use some of the nuggets I learned tomorrow in clinic!

I was very impressed by the range and extent of Dr. Wells' knowledge of food and nutrition, besides the main topic of orthopedics.

Great speaker. very clear and simple explanations.

He is my favorite teacher of yours so far. Very clear and useful information.

He is sure of himself yet unpretentious. His delivery is mild yet clear, very easy to listen to for a long period of time. I appreciate his blended studies that he has put into practice.

Dr. Wells' relaxed approach and natural humor make the course easy and keep it moving along well; his wealth of experience and ability to make very clear explanations of concepts and anatomy are very effective teaching tools.

Well done! Clear, explicit explanations and very well organized with good demonstrations.

I love the comprehensive approach and different treatment modalities he presented. the demos were great. he was easy to understand and did not try to re-invent the wheel - i enjoyed the course and there was information that i can use everyday in my practice.

Absolutely amazing. Extremely knowledgeable, yet approachable and truly seems to be caring and kind. I am drawn to his energy as well as his style of speaking. He shared his knowledge without a pompous air of superiority, and made the audience feel as if they were contributing. (And this was all via the Webinar!) I would definitely look for his name in the future, when considering webinars.

Excellent! Two of the best lectures. His Whiplash being the first.

Can't say enough about this weekends courses. Great info and presentation. Also can't thank lotus enough for making these webinars possible.

This was one of the best courses I have attended. I was able to incorporate information on Monday. I look forward to hearing him talk again on orthopedics.

I thoroughly enjoyed this webinar with Dr. Wells. Not only is he very knowledgeable, but he is able to deliver the information in a way that keeps your interest and is easy to understand. I enjoyed his sense of humor and his gentleness with the participants.

I am blown away. Great!

Great class! One of the best!

I attended Dr. Wells' webinars on Clinical Orthopedic Strategies on both Whiplash and Back Pain and WOW!!! Thank you Dr. Wells for teaching in an easy to understand and concise fashion. If you have the chance, learn from this man! He has a great sense of humor, is funny, and very knowledgeable. I took radiology courses during school so when he went over x-rays, it was a great refresher for me. Thank you Dr. Wells for teaching exercises to strengthen muscles. I have never even heard of some! This will not only help my patients but me as well!! These classes helped me remember how useful local points and acupressure are. Thanks again!

Fabulous speaker. Informational, organizes and funny
