Fong-Yi Wei is one of the best people I have ever met. She connects to her patients on not just a treatment level but also on a personal level. I went to her for muscular pain in my face and by the end of the first session I was comfortable, relaxed and the pain that has begun to take over my life had started to subside. During that first session she was able to tell me that my symptoms closely resembled Trigeminal Neuralgia which starts from the jaw muscle and shoots out in three different area

Ms.Fong-Yi Wel, is the best acupuncturist and person I have ever met.She has helped me and my premature daughter So much. Just by listening to what she tells me to do and the food she tells me to get, my premature daughter is thiving in the ways i thought she could long as I listen to what she says, that's very important. And MOST important going to see her as much as possible.In one week there was such a difference, in both of us.even now I feel better every day.i recommend her 100%
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with Bell Palsy on my right side of my face. For almost two months I get that I wouldn't get better and my negativity took hold of me. I started seeing Dr. Wei near the end of May and have seen her for almost 15 sessions since than, and I tell you she is truly a professional, passionate person who wants nothing but to help us get better. It was tough at first but now that I look back at it, my face is coming back and she has truly given me my confidence back.

She's absolutely amazing. I treat my allergies, my carpal tunnel and sinusitis with her and i have seen great results. She takes her time with you to make sure you are ok. Im so blessed to have found her.

Dr Wei has changed my life. I first went to her to heal my injured hand from a fall. I was in a terrible pain and Dr Wei's acupuncture gave me total relief. I then began having Dr Wei treat my back and even dizziness. She is truly a miracle worker. And most of all her beautiful soul enhances the treatment.
Having recently finished my treatment w. Dr Wei, I would not hesitate to recommend friends and family to her. She is skillful and caring evidenced by her willingness to accommodate to her patient's needs. She patiently takes the time to understand my concerns and provide treatment accordingly.

Last October 2015, I was having trouble sleeping for a couple of weeks cause I was having stomach issues where I felt so full, I couldn't lay down and couldn't sleep. Went to 2 Gastro drs but didn't help much. So I decided to go the alternative way. I went to see Dr. Fong-Yi Wei and it was one of the best decisions I've made. She cured my stomach by acupuncture needles and moxibustion. I also go to her for insomnia and sleeping is better. Knock-on-wood to all! I highly recommend Dr. Fong-Yi Wei!

I have been to a lot of Acupuncturists for infertility and pain control. Dr. Wei is absolutely the best doctor for me. First of all, she listens very well. She spent an hour for consultation for the first visit. She gives me the right treatment depends on my cycle for infertility. My body temperature and egg quality improved a lot. I also asked her about my hip joint pain which I got from surgery 3years ago. When she gave me the second needle, my pain was already gone!

Dr. Wei's treatments changed my life. After suffering for months trying physical therapy to re-cover from a herniated disc, I tried acupuncture with Dr. Wei. On my first visit I had to depend on my wife and cane to get into the office. Dr Wei spent over 90 minutes then and on sub-sequent visits to connect with me both physically and mentally. I improved after each visit, and at the end of 2 months i was totally functioning on my own. I credit Dr Wei for my recovery.
