Dr Wei cured me with only a few treatments!!!! I had extreme itching (couldn't sleep at night) and a horrible rash. It was beyond exhausting to live with. Immediately after my first treatment I felt a huge sign of relief.. the itching was gone!!!! A few treatments later my rash went away. I went to 3 dermatologists and 6 doctors before Dr Wei and they did nothing and left me to suffer. Thank you Dr Wei for making me a feel like myself again and back to good health!!! Such a blessing :)

Fong-Yi Wei is a very good acupuncturist that I have come to experience over the past year....her technique at relieving the discomfort of hip pain. She's also very good at reducing neck movement restriction due to arthritis. I highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for help with discomfort in areas of their body!

I went to dr wei for relief from lower back pain after a fall at work workmans comp put me through epidurals, pt and rest for months to no avail. After two months of visits dr wei got me enough relief to sometimes leaving my cane at home. Her professionalism and knowledge of eastern medicine is extraordinary. I will be getting microsurgery for a mechanical repair, but look forward to future visits to keep my mind and body on the right track to recovery. I highly recommend dr wei.

Dr. Wei is incredibly helpful and really cares about making her patients the best and healthiest they can be. She even stays and talks with you about anything you may need help with. She helped me so much with my anxiety and physical pains.

I have been seeing Dr. Wei for two months after I suffered a miscarriage from Uterine Fibroids. I simultaneously had been taking Lupron shots (hormones) and found that I did not suffer any of the side effects of the shots (hot flashes, mood swings, problems sleeping, etc.) and the fibroids shrunk. Dr. Wei was very supportive and comforting during this time, her sessions helped me relax as well. I highly recommend her.

Where do I begin to tell you how amazing Dr Wei is..... my husband went to her a couple of years ago for neck pain and could not stop talking about her, not only made neck better but she was so kind and therapeutic. I finally decided to go a month ago for a pain in back that started July 3, orthopedic, physical therapy for 5 weeks nothing helped. One time I’m not even kidding with Dr Wei and pain was so much better. This is going on my third week and pain completely gone. Please go THE BEST!

Dr. Wei is a great listener and is thoughtful in choosing her methodology for treatment. I originally went to Dr. Wei the summer of 2017 for acupuncture to treat an old back injury that was acting up. Since then, I've continued to see her for cupping and gua sha (scalp massage). Dr. Wei is also skilled at recommending natural remedies to help overall health (eg - ginger honey tea).

Following a PRP injection into my Achilles tendon due to a sports injury, Dr. Wei was able to cure my residual pain and stiffness following only one acupuncture treatment.

Dr. Wei is a great Accupuncturist and great person! I came to her with lower back pain and neck pain that I had for years and after first session I already felt the results. Just a few visits later, I’m almost pain free, thanks to Dr. Wei! If you have a pain of any kind, she should be your first point of contact! Enjoy your treatments with her!

I was a patient of Dr. Wei back in 2016-2017. I had my knee treated after I had been run over by a drunk driver. I was skeptical at first about acupuncture but that did not deter Dr. Wei from performing her job in a professional manner. She was very descriptive of Chinese medicine and it's practical application and was also knowledgeable on general wellness. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. You will not regret your visit!

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 never.as 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.

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.
