– R. Daskal

Dr. Fred Ragsdale comes to you!


Taking expert care to the next level, Dr. Ragsdale has elevated his expertise one step further by offering his extensive experience helping patients to heal in their own homes, hotel, or place of work. Treatment is generally available on certain days within, or close to, the Miracle Mile area, West Hollywood, West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and Silver Lake. Enjoy treatments in your own bed, on a comfortable sofa, or yoga mat without the worry of traffic.

Benefits of House Calls

You can receive treatment in an environment of greater comfort, security, and confidentiality.

  • You can receive treatment when your condition or pain is too great to leave home.
  • You can avoid travel time and traffic
  • You can receive the best quality care possible with treatments that can be easily be extended for additional time.

For home visits, Dr. Ragsdale provides his patients with the proper insurance receipts (including diagnosis codes) for submission to their individual insurance carrier. These receipts may be applied to your deductible or accepted into a flex-spending account. Many patients find these receipts to be quite useful in saving them money throughout the course of their care.

If your insurance company will not reimburse you for the services rendered, the receipts may be able to be applied to your deductible or accepted into a flex-spending account. Many patients find these receipts to be quite useful in saving them money throughout the course of their care.

At Home Acupuncture and COVID-19

We take every precaution to make sure our patients are always safe.  By conforming to CDC and Los Angeles County safety guidelines for clinicians, we ensure our compliance. Before your treatment, we’ll discuss details regarding your health, including if you have experienced recent flu-like symptoms such as fever and cough then plan your treatment accordingly.

Steps to ensure your safety

  1. You must disclose your current state of health before your appointment.
  2. You are required to wear a mask or face covering during your treatment.
  3. You should consider a large open space to have your At-Home treatment, which can be a patio, wood deck, balcony, pool area, backyard, or your living room.
