In the last 10 years, I went through many traumatic experiences: being laid off from my job as a Payroll Analyst, a major car accident, and breast cancer for which I went through intense chemotherapy. Even though I have been a cancer survivor since 2010, but the ongoing battles with health issues due to the side effects of chemo pushed me into a deep depression. I had some severe episodes. It was at this point, a good friend of mine whose husband was a patient of Dr. Chen’s some years back recommended Dr. Chen to me.
I was apprehensive before going to see Dr. Chen as I had never had acupuncture treatments before. When I saw Dr. Chen for the first time, his warm greeting and down to earth manner put me at ease right away. He spent quite a long time listening to my story. He paid attention to my medical and prescription drug histories. After analyzing all my issues, he proceeded with his treatments. He used various combinations of Acupuncture, Tuina, Cupping and Chinese herbal medicine. They were so soothing that I felt my body and mind responding to his treatments and began to relax after a few sessions.
Beginning in September, 2012, Dr. Chen saw me weekly at first and later every two weeks. Now it is February 2013, I feel like a different person. I have a new look on life with hope which I had not had for a long time.
Dr. Chen is a highly skilled physician who has compassion for his patients. I put my total trust in him as he has turned my life around for me.
