Dr. Ha-il Lee received his doctor of chiropractic degree from the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. After he finished doctor of chiropractic program, he continued to study 3 years of Master degree in Oriental medicine and graduated summa cum laude from the National University of Health Sciences. Unlike many other chiropractors in Illinois who obtain acupuncture certification by 100 hours or 200 hours education, Dr. Lee completed Master of Science in Oriental Medicine and obtained acupuncture license in Illinois and Diplomate of Oriental Medicine from NCCAOM who are able to prescribe traditional herbal medicine to patients.
What he usually provides for patients is a multi-directional approach (acupuncture, acu-pressure, chiropractic adjustment, postural exercise and more) to patients' condition depending on their age, tolerance to pain, severity of pain and types of disease. He normally give his patients to wait 3 to 4 visits to see improvement from the treatment and during the first 3~4 visits, the treatment will be modified if patients do not well respond to one modality of treatment. From his experience of patient care, it brings out the best outcome when those treatment modalities are appropriately introduced to the treatment plan at the right time.
