We at the Office of People and Pets Acupuncture are providers of Integrative medical care which can include the whole family.

Founder Dr. Andrea Fochios holds a four year Medical Degree in Chinese Medicine and is licensed by the Acupuncture Licensing Board of North Carolina to practice Chinese Medicine on humans. Although not a primary care provider, Dr Fochios is committed to being a supportive adjunct to your primary health care team in the aid and support of promoting health and healing. She has a relationship with many health care providers and will not hesitate to recommend referral if she feels it is in your best interest.
Dr. Fochios is a licensed Veterinarian with over 30 years experience. She holds a Master’s Degree in Animal Behavior and a four year Degree in Chinese Medicine. In addition to providing the services already mentioned, Dr Fochios can help offer guidance in how to provide individualized preventive and nutritional care for your pet and can help determine when you need to see your primary veterinarian for specific issues. She strongly recommends seeing your primary veterinary care provider at least once yearly for your younger furred family members and at least twice yearly for geriatrics. Those with underlying health concerns should be seen as needed. This could help ensure that any slowly manifesting illnesses can be detected early on.
Because of her knowledge, Dr. Fochios can give accurate and opened minded consultations about traditional, alternative and complementary treatments. Dr. Fochios works hand in hand with both the human and veterinary medical communities and will advise clients when she feels a visit to a veterinary hospital, doctor or emergency facility is needed. She will also refer other health care professionals she feels the patient would benefit from.
Please call 828 254-2773 or email us. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Patient appointments are scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
