Dr Trahan is truly a gifted healer. I came to see him based on a recommendation from a close friend. At the time of my first visit, I was in pain from a gastrointestinal condition that I had been suffering from for almost a year and was considering a costly and invasive surgery. After receiving acupuncture and herbs from Dr Trahan, I began to improve and today I am fully healed. I am deeply grateful to Dr Trahan for his expertise and dedication to my healing process. I fully recommend him to any

I have been receiving acupuncture from Dr Trahan for several years, initially twice a week, and now once a week, and my symptoms have almost completely disappeared. He also specially mixes up herbs that have helped my skin and my general health. He also treats me with homeopathic remedies, and helps me with dietary adjustments according to my symptoms, my constitution, and seasonal changes. His gentle acupuncture treatments leave me revitalized after every session. He is warm & accommodating

Dr. Trahan is an exceptional doctor. I have been seeing him for several months and in the time that he has treated me I have felt a substantial difference in the way that I feel! This is in part due to his tremendous knowledge in both acupuncture and herbal medicine, but also his generous personality. Dr. Trahan is super easy to talk with, I feel very comfortable discussing any concern that I may be having about my health and my body.

He has years of training and clinical experience in herbs, acupuncture and homeopathy, so he can come at medical problems from one, or a combination of, several different approaches. Very warm and caring, takes a lot of time with you.

During a very challenging period of my life (physically, mentally, emotionally) I started going to him for acupuncture, herbs, and homeopathy. We worked together for a few years and he truly changed my life, dramatically, for the better. I feel INCREDIBLY grateful and lucky to have found him. I have never been to a holistic practitioner in the NYC area with as much dedication and the range of knowledge that Dr. Trahan has (I have a hard time imagining that there are many others).

Dr. Trahan treated me with acupuncture and homeopathy for energy, balance, and digestion, all related to my polycystic kidney disease, as well as body points directly corresponding to the kidneys. Not only did I feel stronger after my sessions, I credit him with helping me manage my symptoms until I got my transplant. As a physically nervous person, I found his warm, low-key manner welcome and comforting. I wish more doctors in traditional medicine were more like him!
