What People Say About Dr. John Zhang, PHD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have Crohn's Disease and migraines. When I first started seeing Dr. Zhang several years ago, I was ill and in pain almost all the time, and had been for years. I saw him every week or two in the beginning. It was expensive, but worth it. Now I see him once a month for maintenance, and I rarely have problems. I have been completely off my meds for Crohn's for 2 years, and off my migraine meds for 6 months. He is the most effective medical practitioner I have ever been to.

Dr. Zhang has improved the quality of my life. I have been to other Acupuncturists but, none have been able to give me the quality treatments and more importantly the results then Dr. Zhang. I started going to him out of desperation from dealing with a sciatica issue. Now, I see him on a regular basis, a gift to mydelf as he treats some other lifelong type syndromes i.e. IBS, GERD, Sinus etc. Words do not give justice to the results of being treated by Dr. Zhang.
