Dr. Lo is an instructor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse who has studied family medicine, chiropractic medicine, nutrition, massage, allergy medicine, acupuncture, and so much more. He is a physician who believes in all healing modalities including the use of conventional medicine and alternative healing methods to help his patients overcome their health conditions.
