He made a joke trying to guess why I was seeking acupuncture. He guessed wrong with 1) infertility or 2) headaches. The whole thing felt insensitive. What if I was there for infertility? Was that supposed to put me at ease? My second visit he didn't remember what I was wanting help with. Even though he wrote notes at the first visit. He appeared unprepared and I didn't feel he really cared to truly help me. In an effort to give it a fair chance to help me, I did see though the 4 visits he initially recommended. I was never clear about the reasons he was placing needles in certain places. Overall I'm glad I tried it but I felt it wasn't a good use of my money and I doubt I'll try acupuncture again.

If you have typical conditions or issues, Chris is the acupuncturist to consult. If you have anything more mysterious (i.e. vulvar vestibulitis, interstitial cystitis, Crohn's), I would not recommend Chris or ANY acupuncturist. All of my disorders flared up, and I later discovered in online support groups that others who sought relief from acupuncture also suffered longstanding flares. It is actually common. Sadly, it is not a cure for many of us and should not be presented as such. Never provide a guarantee of relief if you can't back it up. But I would also recommend researching these conditions to Chris. He clearly did not know anything about them, hence I was surprised when it was obvious that he hadn't even googled for information after a couple of weeks. When he asked me about my interstitial cystitis symptoms, I had to remind him that the condition is extremely painful. I had cited primary symptoms during a flare, which I was not experiencing at this time. If I had, I would have been home...in bed. IC pain is the equivalent of stage 4 cancer or childbirth. Learn about the disorders! Finally, he does not return calls in a timely manner. My last call was urgent, and he did not get back to me for nearly five days. Unacceptable. Bone up on admin skills or hire someone else to help you. If someone is a health professional, then he or she can't afford to ignore patients.

Dr. Chou has helped my neck pain when no one else could. After 30+ physical therapy appointments and multiple recommendations from Eastern medicine doctors to resort to a long-term pain specialist I went to see Dr. Chou upon a friend's recommendation. I am so glad that I did. He's straightforward, takes the time with you to understand your case and explain to you how acupuncture may or may not help and why. He's just the best and I cannot say enough good things about him. Go see him! He's amazing!

A pain psychologist suggested Carl two years ago. Now we schedule as many appts. as we can. I've found the treatment to be life-changing (in a good way). There is still some pain in my back, but it doesn't cause suffering. And I know what to do to decrease it. So. Can I objectively point to a scale that shows benefit? Of course not. But my life is better. My self-talk has changed so much that I have a tough time imagining the previous, harsh thinking patterns. Solely to Carl? Don't know. But my life is better and he's been there all through the changes. Whether it's solely or partially, I believe there is a definite, clear relationship between the positive change and Carl's treatment. I recommend him. He heals. * Be aware: He's a character. One of my friends didn't care for him. But... that's how it is. We've always gotten on well. I enjoy the out-of-the-norm personalities in this world!

I have been under leslie's care for 3 yrs. I first went for help with a frozen shoulder, from which she helped achieve a complete and speedy recovery. Since then I have been treated for occasional bouts of sciatica and hip bursitis, and continue to see her on regular basis for wellness, I have never felt better. Leslie's quiet confidence and demeanor immediately put you at ease.She listens and does not rush her time with you.The office is beautifully decorated and very peaceful. You can't help but feel better when you leave.

Dr. Shen helped my son when he was 10-14 years old to alleviate stomach aches that had gone undiagnosed for years. She was so kind and gentle that my son was able to undergo the procedures without any fear. He recovered completely and had never had any issues. We are so fortunate to have found her!!

    If you are suffering from spring allergies, you are not alone. Over 26 million Americans deal with chronic seasonal allergies according to the National Center of Health Statistics. This figure does not include people who may just be dealing with more minor symptoms from allergies, but if it did, it is presumed that number would shoot up to 40 million people.

  • For those of you who don’t know, acupuncture is a form of traditional Eastern medicine backed by modern science, where ultra-thin, sterile needs are inserted into specific points of the body. When stimulated, these points impact the way the body functions. Due to the versatility of this treatment, acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of health issues including discomfort during pregnancy and infertility.
