What criteria should one use in choosing an acupuncturist?

Acupuncture is a licensed and regulated healthcare profession in approximately half the states in the Union.  In those where it is licensed, patients should first of all ensure themselves that the potential practitioner is licensed.  In those states which do not currently require licensing, patients should seek practitioners who are national board certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists.  Acupuncturists having passed this exam usually append Dipl. Ac. (NCCA) after their names.  In addition, patients should inquire about where the practitioner was trained, how long the training was, how long he or she has been in practice, and what experience the practitioner has had in treating the patient's specific ailment.  And, beyond intelligently checking a practitioner's professional credentials, the best assurance is word of mouth from satisfied patients.
