Korianne Haas, MD

about doctor Haas

Dr. Korianne Haas specializes in the non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical relief of painful musculoskeletal conditions and traumatic stress disorders, along with immune system restoration, anti-aging medicine and the treatment of gynecological, hormonal and endocrine disorders.

You deserve to achieve your fullest potential!  If you do not want to accept what other doctors have told you (nothing can be done, surgery is your only option, this is normal for your age, etc.) or if medications, steroid injections and other therapies have failed, call Dr. Haas!  She possesses the knowledge, clinical skills, critical thinking and mindfulness gained from over 10,000 hours of experience in clinical anesthesia. 

She excelled in what is arguably the United States gold standard course in medical acupuncture with Joseph Helms, MD and the Helms Medical Institute, incorporating modern treatment principles based on ancient medical wisdom and greatly expanding her ability to treat a multitude of conditions by correcting blockages and imbalances in the more subtle energy channels of the body in order to profoundly influence pain, inflammation, the nervous system, the endocrine system and so much more.

She went on to train with Dr. Frank Shallenberger, the president of the American Academy of Ozonotherapy (AAOT), and arguably the leading US expert in responsible medical ozone therapies and prolozone. 

She also trained with Peter Holmes, LAC and Tiffany Pollard, the founders of Aroma Acupoint TherapyTM.

She utilizes every facet of this unique progression of training and experience to customize each and every treatment.  For example, in treating a longstanding painful low back condition in a patient who was averse to injections, she combined Dr. Helms's periosteal acupuncture technique with a focusing acupuncture needle inserted into Dr. Shallenberger's "back 1 point" to produce rapid and profound relief. She merges the art and science of medicine in treating each unique individual and she draws upon her unique knowledge and experience to administer the most effective treatments while minimizing risk and discomfort. 

Like her mentors and an increasing number of physicians today, Dr. Haas was drawn to medical acupuncture, medical ozone therapies and AATTM by her realization that we are energetic beings and that the current "disease-care" model is broken.  She feels honored and privileged to have the unique opportunity to combine her allopathic medical background with exciting, leading-edge treatments that work in order to best serve humanity. 

Her family also inspired her along this path.  Dr. Haas's maternal grandfather, Willem Khoe, MD and maternal aunt, Tamarah Fratianni, DO also felt the call to be unconventional healers, utilizing medical acupuncture, biopuncture, homeopathy and other energetic treatments into their practices with outstanding results.  Dr. Haas is thus a third generation medical acupuncturist who is thrilled to have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in people's lives and to build on this extraordinary family legacy.
