Meet the M.D.
David Riegleman, MD, CAQPM, FAAFP
Doctor of Medicine
Interventional Pain Management, Family Medicine, Acupuncture
Dr. Riegleman graduated in the top 5% of his class from the United States Air Force Academy with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. He obtained his medical degree from the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine at Uniformed Services University. He went on to complete his internship and residency at the Eglin Air Force Base Family Medicine Residency program. Following residency, he completed an Interventional Pain Medicine Fellowship at Brooke Army Medical Center.
It was during his grueling residency program when he sought out medical acupuncture training for physicians and graduated from the Helms Medical Institute. It was here that he learned the foundations of medical acupuncture to include the science that complements medical treatments and the age-old tradition of acupuncture in classical Chinese texts. During fellowship, he received additional training in osteopathic manipulation and functional medicine.
Dr. Riegleman is Double Board Certified in Family Medicine and Pain Medicine through the American Board of Family Medicine. He uses a multi-modal and whole-person approach, unparalleled by other MD’s, to approach every medical condition with management therapies focused to harness the body’s innate healing capabilities.
Dr. Riegleman has been married since 2017 and enjoys traveling to make more memories together with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Henry. He has been given so much by the city of San Antonio, and it is his goal to give back to the wonderful people that make the Alamo City what it is!
To provide a quality care by combining both western and eastern medicine to our patients
What is Medical Acupuncture?
Medical acupuncture, by its most simple definition, is acupuncture administered by a qualified medical doctor.
Medical doctors who practice acupuncture must graduate from medical school where they rigorously learn everything there is to know about western medicine. In addition, they also must train in an accredited acupuncture curriculum. This allows medical acupuncturists to view and treat disease differently than either M.D.s or acupuncturists – combining both western and eastern medicine to help their patients, instead of relying on one or the other.
Medical acupuncture combines thousands of years of tradition with modern peer-reviewed scientific evidence making the field one of the most unique and effective forms of therapy for multiple conditions. Medical acupuncture has been studied to treat many conditions from which people suffer.
