For many years, I created a “Best of” list, so clients or friends who asked me about the best dentist, acupuncturist, doctor, etc. would know where to go. I stopped creating this list a few years’ back. I’m not sure why. Anyway, I am inspired to create a current BEST OF list.

This list is, of course, based on my personal experience. I get no kick-backs from any of these referrals. These fine men and women are simply THE BEST.

Feel free to contact them and mention that I referred you (it couldn’t hurt!). Note: Most of these good people work in the San Diego area.

Peace and fire, Michael
