I wanted to start by saying that I don’t know where I would be without you today.  Thank You. 

I met you a few years ago when I started getting Acupuncture.  A year into knowing you, I started experiencing all kinds of problems from my acne and medication.  It consistently got worse over the next year.  I saw doctor after doctor, after dermatologist, and no one could offer me any relief for very long at all except for you.  You also referred me to try Chinese Herbal Medicine.  What a life changing experience that has been for me.  I actually started seeing results and my problems got less frequent and more controllable.  I also was seeing you for some back problems that I sustained when I was 17, and was not seeing any results from my Chiropractor the way that I needed.  You then referred me for specialized physical rehabilitation which completely changed my quality of life.  I was barely able to get out of bed, (or stay in bed), without excruciating pain daily.  I knew because you had helped me with my skin problems that you already had a passion for really helping your clients.  That made me believe that it was the right thing to do, and it was. 

I have not found a doctor that I trust in years, until you.  You really believe in helping people in any way possible.  That is such a rare quality to have these days and I will always be faithful as a client to you.  I really like that you also have your N.P. license.  You know such a wide range of things, and your study of Chinese medicine is phenomenal.  I owe this whole last year to the help and support you have given me when it seemed like no other health care professionals really cared at all.  You are the best at what you do, and I don’t think I will ever find a provider quite like you again.  I can’t tell you how you really helped make my life worth waking up for again.  I will be a client for life!

Dear Ms. Porter,

My wife began a series of acupuncture treatments with you for severe back pains attributed to a compression fracture of a lower vertebrae she suffered from a fall.

I’m pleased to report that her back pains continued to decrease after she had completed the series of five treatments. She now walks much better and without any discomfort, when asked about her back, she replies, “It doesn’t hurt. There is some soreness there but it doesn’t hurt unless I bump that area.” She doesn’t complain about back pain and seems to have a full range of movement.

As you may remember, she was suffering then from short term memory loss which gives her ever more problems. However, I feel much relieved that she no longer has to endure that severe back pain.

Thank you for your services,
