Adrenal Issues


Dr. Fan is an extraordinary physician! She is very sweet, patient, gentle, and caring! I would highly recommended her. Dr. Fan has helped me with my adrenal issues, muscle spasms, and much more! When other Western doctor's have prescribed medicine, with no care for the repercussions from side effects; Dr. Fan's acupuncture has a whole different approach. I love the results and will continue to see her!

Constipation


Hear ye, hear ye! I’m only going to say this once. Dr. Yali Fan, Doctor of Oriental Medicine (DOM), is a genuine healer and I mean that in all of its subtle permutations. She not only has the education, knowledge and necessary skills, based on thirty years of practice diagnosing and treating a myriad of maladies, she also radiates a calming presence, which I believe aids critically in the healing process. In fact, based on my personal experience, she can treat countless disorders not just those that are sanctioned by the National Institute of Health (NIH). NIH limits their endorsement of acupuncture to chronic pain. But, since NIH is primarily made up of mainstream medical doctors, maybe they have a vested interest in disparaging “alternative” therapies. I first went to Dr. Fan in the spring of 2014 out of desperation for unrelenting, troublesome constipation that was caused by lumbar surgery in 1983. That’s thirty-one years of misery for which I consulted multiple mainstream medical doctors with multiple medical specialties, including a shrink. After thirty-one years with numerous MRIs, CT scans, scopes inserted in both ends and delicious barium swallows :-( and enemas, I was told it was all in my head. A well-meaning shrink proved to be even less helpful than the rest of the medical “professionals” that reviewed my case: gastroenterologists, radiologists, pathologist etc. Nonetheless, the shrink did conclude that I’m not crazy. In very short order after consulting with Dr. Fan she restarted my sleeping colon, no peristalsis, using extremely ancient skills that she employs with great talent. My bowels work normally now. Dr. Fan is currently working on other seemingly intractable issues caused by years of injuries sustained in my impetuous youth and while in the Marine Corps in Vietnam. Now I’ve finally convinced my wife to see Dr. Fan. The results of one week of acupuncture are seemingly miraculous. My wife has been plagued with “night terrors” ever since a botched brain surgery in 1995. That was nineteen years ago and she has consulted multiple doctors and tried numerous prescription drugs to alleviate her nightmares, all to no avail. As of this writing, June 23, 2014, she has had three acupuncture treatments and the nightmares stopped on the first treatment. She now sleeps like a baby, which is good because I don’t have to keep waking her up in the middle of the night. I feel deep remorse for all those wasted years of consulting mainstream medical doctors—maybe I need to consult that well-meaning shrink again to work through my guilt. Unfortunately, ignorance of my options wasn’t the only reason that I didn’t consult a DOM sooner. Finances were a concern. After all, we had comprehensive medical insurance that paid all except the co-payment for mainstream medical treatments. How absurd it that, I ask you? We sacrificed actually being healed so we could consult clueless medical doctors, meager body mechanics, because they were paid for by our insurance. Our reward for being frugal was thirty years of chronic pain. To paraphrase Rudyard Kipling, “Hear and attend and listen.” If you’re ailing or if you know someone who is, go see Dr. Fan. Unfortunately, I know from personal experience that you can lead a horse to water… Joe

Faint and Dizziness


Dr Fan Yali has done a wonderful job helping me; approx. three weeks ago, after a leisurely bike ride, I completely blacked out. When I woke up; I was unable to move the fingers on both of my hands and thought that I had had a stroke. After a trip to the emergency room, several tests, and the neurologist informing me that he had no idea the issue as all my results including a MRI and EKG show my health to be that of a teenager not a 40 year old; I decided to check into acupuncture. I had two more black outs before my appt with her and now I have had approx. two weeks of treatments and even though I know we still have a long way to go to return my body to balance I feel great. I have had no more black outs and continue to have more energy and focus than I have had in years.

Pain Management


Dr. Yali Fan is a miracle worker. I went to see her for general pain, stress and sleep disorder. After only a few visits, I felt like a different person. I love the Adrenal support she prescribed for me. It gave me great energy. I was skeptical but now I'm convinced! I highly recommend Dr. Fan!
Judy Jones

I went to my first visit with Dr. Fan and it was a great experience. I learned so much about my body. I had no idea how much damage I was causing my self and all this time I've been using pain medication and it will only take away the pain temporary. So now I'm starting the natural way with the Dr. giving me great explanation on how to use the herbs and what I can and can not eat and a few treatments of Acupuncture. I will be on my way of being pain free. I feel a bit better already. I cant wait to see my results. The visit alone was great. I had made an appointment and I arrived 10 min early and I was in my room in no time. It was so fast not rushed and because the receptionist told me to print out the patient form from their website and bring it filled out so I did and it helped my process be a lot faster. I was so pleased with the service there. It was a great first impression and I recommend Dr. Fan to everybody!

Gastroparesis


I have been a patient of Dr. Fan for a very long time now. I have been to at least 3 different Acupuncturists in Tampa & she is by far the very best there is. She has successfully been treating me for a digestive disease called Gastroparesis & I honestly can’t imagine where I would be had I not found her. She not only has an honest caring desire to actually help people get better (unlike most Doctors), but she also has the skills to make it happen. One thing that has positioned her above the rest is the fact that she will actually do more for her patients that others do in her field. For my particular case, she not only uses more needles (which makes a huge improvement to my health), but she also utilizes massage techniques that truly make an impact. My advice to you is giving her chance to help you & be patient. Results don’t always happen overnight. It took me 2-3 months to feel significant results (each patient is different) but it drastically improved the quality of my life & has done so ever since. Best of luck!

Anxiety


I have been a patient for almost two years. Dr Fan has helped with several issues, the most amazing being the lessening of my anxiety level. Her treatment for back pain has also given me much relief. I have great confidence in her as a physician and an acupuncturist. She is kind, caring and a pleasure to spend time with. She and Chrissy make a trip to the office a pleasant experience. Thank you for the difference you make in all of our lives.

Pain and Stress


I began treatment with Dr. Fan after a friend's referral. This turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to me medically. I would complain my aches, pains, and stress. When visiting my primary physician, I would always leave with many prescriptions and still no results. Then the pain fog lifted after treatments with Dr. Fan. She was able to relieve pain and swelling in my ankle, that left my primary physician speechless. My treatments have ranged from stress reduction, pain elimination, enhanced memory, weight loss, arthritis, back pain, flu and cold symptoms. After seeing her you will see results guaranteed. When doctors fail Dr. Fan will not.

Back Pain


I've had chronic back pain for over 15 years, insomnia, sinusitis and was recently in a car accident. In just a short while, my quality of life has improved 10 fold. I'm very grateful for my new-found health! The special attention and positive energy present in the practice are just 2 more things that made my experience unique and worthwhile! Many thanks!!

To all current and future patients of Dr. Fan. My name is Julie and this is my story.

I have two herniated discs in my lower back located between L4, L5 and S1. This has been a problem for me for almost 15 years. I had seen many doctors way back when and have had many different treatments including drug therapy and steroid injections. These different treatments would work for a short period of time and then back to the doctor I would go. Surgery, to me, has never been an option. I could not find one doctor to tell me that after going through surgery that it would in fact fix my problem, basically I wanted a 100% guarantee and no one was willing to give me that. I have lived with pain which has come and gone since then.

Recently that changed. On Friday, July 9, 2010 my back went out due to a series of events that had preceded it. The pain was so great that it would take my breath away and make me physically exhausted and nauseous. I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand, and I couldn’t lie down in any position comfortably. I called Dr. Fan’s office on the 10th after having countless people mention acupuncture and Dr. Fan’s name came up several times. I did some research and decided to give acupuncture a try. After speaking with Dr. Fan I agreed to let her start treatment that same day.

To date I have had 5 treatments in the last 8 days and am happy to report that I am pain free!!! I have been very pleased with the level of care and understanding from Dr. Fan and will continue to see her for treatment of other issues. I highly recommend her to everyone I see. My husband now is in her care as well for back related issues and have many friends that will be using her in the future.

Thanks Dr. Fan for all you have done.
Sincerely,
Julie M.

After being rear-ended on a highway, resulting in acute pain in the neck and spine, I went to Dr. Fan for Tuina massage and acupuncture treatment. It was amazing to be pain-free for 2 days. Since there has been great relief, as well as increasing energy, I always look forward to the next session with Dr. Fan. I'm confident my healing process has strengthened enormously.

Hives


Although I had already spent several thousand dollars for medical doctors and prescriptions, all I wanted was to get better so I decided to endure whatever the additional monetary cost there would be and hope for a way to end my months of misery. I looked on line and called Dr. Fan's office in a state of total hysteria and she made an appointment to see me within 30 minutes of my call. She took my history, examined me and did an Accupunture treatment. It was very relaxing, not painful or scary at all. My hives were gone by the next morning and they have not returned. I am so thankful to be itch and bump free - who would have thought it could be accomplished so quickly! I am a strong convert to this type of medicine and especially to Dr. Fan. Acupuncture is a gift, a wonderful blessing that many need to know about.

Nerve Pain


I have herniated discs in L5 and S1 causing a sciatic nerve pain down my left leg. I received (2) steroid treatments and physical therapy and it wasn't relieving the pain and my doctor suggested surgery. Matter of fact, the PT put me on crutches thinking it would take the pressure off my back but it caused atrophy in my left calf muscle. A friend of mine suggested acupuncture and I was very fortunate to find Dr. Yali Fan. Literally, I could not lay on my stomach because of my lower back pain. But after 3 treatments, I was able to lay on my stomach with no pain. I saw her 3 times a week and now it's once a week as herniated disc takes time to heal. I strongly recommend Dr. Fan. She is so easy to talk to, expert in her field, and very gentle with her treatment.

Thanks for all the people that previously wrote reviews because that is how I found her!!

I want to take a moments time to thank you for what you have done to help me get these nerve pressure headaches under control. When I first came to see you, I was hoping for just a little relief, but walking out of your office with no headache. That has never happened before. I received a lot of good treatments from my chiropractor, who helped when other physicians diagnosed the problem originally as migraines, however the treatment I have received from you through acupuncture and Tui-Na is beyond my greatest expectation. I cannot truly thank you enough for all you have done, but the level of care and service I have received. I will definitely bring all my healthcare and my family healthcare needs to you. Thank you again for all your help.

Headaches and Insomnia


Dr. Fan has helped me so much during my pregnancy. I had horrible headaches and insomnia -normal things during pregnancy- and with just ONE treatment I felt the results. After a few treatments not only is my pregnancy progressing wonderfully but my headaches are gone and I sleep like a baby! Dr. Fan also helps with breach babies and labor induction, I look forward to seeing her during my whole pregnancy and after. You will not be disappointed!

I have been seeing Dr. Fan for almost 3 months. She has solved many issues for me. Besides helping with both my migraines and insomnia, most importantly, she has relieved my pelvic pain. I can have a normal life again. Something I couldn't do before. My doctor was trying things such as implanting a muscle relaxer or implanting a nerve stimulator in my spine to relieve the pain. With Dr. Fan's treatments, I no longer have to consider having either of these invasive procedures. I highly recommend her.

Ulcerative Colitis


I have been in treatment for ulcerative colitis for more than five years following the regimens of tradition western gastroenerology. The results have been more than disappointing. The medications are frightfully expensive yet produce only marginal results. They broought the bleeding under control, but little more than that. I continued to be plagued by chronic indigestion with alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation with no relief in sight. De4sperate for change, I decided to give alternative mediicine a try. Lucky for me, I picked Dr. Yali Fan at random from the internet. I believe I have made more progress in the past ten weeks than in the preceding five years. If you are suffering from ulcerative colitis or Chrohn's Disease I encourage you to give this therapy a try.

Cancer


Dr. Fan,
It has been a roller coaster ride the past two years since I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and its corresponding bone metastasis. During this time my body was starting to get tired from fighting the disease and the toxic medications. I was weak with no energy and the majority of the bones hurt. No matter what position I was in, sleeping, sitting or walking the pain was always there. Especially in the knees, where I had difficulty in standing and walking.

After only one session with Dr. Fan my knees, which were swollen, started to improve. My energy started to recover. For the first time in two years I started to feel better and knew I had made the right decision.

Now after only five sessions I feel renewed and with energy. The bone pain is gone. I sleep thru the nights and have no problems standing.

My life has tremendously improved and I am thankful to Dr. Fan.

As a patient of yours for the past two months, I would like to thank you for helping me with the pain I have been experiencing since chemotherapy treatment for Breast Cancer left me with Fibromyalgia. I had been to numerous medical doctors for this pain, including a Rheumatologist; and, in spite of daily prescription drugs and many rounds of physical therapy, I was in constant pain all over my body, particularly in my neck, shoulders and back. Just moving from a sitting or lying position to standing position was very painful. I also was experiencing additional excruciating pain in several points of my body and horrendous sleep difficulty which, I was told, was typical with Fibromyalgia. I had not had a night’s sleep, unless drugged, in over two years!

After I had additional physical problems apparently caused by drug interaction or side effects of the many drugs I was taking for pain, stomach problems or sleep, I visited my Family Care Physician, Dr. Colin Chan, M.D. After reviewing everything, he asked me if I would be interested in “alternative” therapy, such as acupuncture for the pain. I had actually thought of it, but probably never would have had the courage to seek out a practitioner. But, since he had confidence in you and I trusted him, I made an appointment and started treatment. I received some immediate relief from pain following the first treatment of acupuncture and Chinese massage; and over the ensuing weeks received further, enormous relief. I would say that my pain has been reduced about 70%! I’m looking forward to feeling even better. My friends and family say I’m almost like my old self. I know that the depression I had sunk into because of the pain and inability to pursue my active life, has lifted considerably! Not to mention that I can sleep, every night, without any kind of aid—except a glass of milk! I wake up in the morning “bright-eyed and bushy tailed” (as my Mom used to say) without overwhelming pain and stiffness!

I know this is long, but I just wanted you to know how grateful I am feel towards you for helping me, and how thankful I am to Dr. Chan for referring me to you.

Crohn's Disease


I am 27 years old and was diagnosed with Advanced Crohns 3 years ago….before being diagnoised I dropped from 130 lbs. To 96 lbs. In 6 months! I suffered from numerous symptoms.

For 3 years I have been on many different medications and in and out of the hospital constantly. I have taken Prednisone 40 mg. (pill), Remicade (by 3 hr. IV), Humira (shot), Flagyl (pill), Cimzia (shot) and others I can’t recall. I have seen many doctors and hospitals. I have under gone many Colonoscopys, X-rays, MRIs, Blood transfusions, Iron infusions and other procedures. After 3 years I still had to make frequent visits to the hospital for a week or longer stay.

On March 8, 2010 I came into Dr. Fan’s office and got a free consultation. She made me feel really comfortable and showed me how acupuncture worked. I had my first session that day and since then I have stopped ALL medication except prednisone which I only take occasionally (10 mg.). I seldom have stomach pain and all my other symptoms have depreciated. My weight is at a steady 120, I sleep well, eat well, have no blood present in my stool and over all feel GREAT! Although my insurance covered all the treatments I had before Dr. Fan and not acupuncture, I would rather pay to be healthy than live and be sick!

I recommend this to anyone who has Crohns because I have NEVER gone this long without being admitted to the hospital or in major pain. Now I an live my life without having to worry about what my Crohns will not let me accomplish. I have goals that I can see now…becoming a wife, having a child and finishing school…this is all possible thanks to acupuncture. Thank you Dr. Fan.

Weight Loss


Dr. Fan,
My wife and I have tried several diets in the past. While we have experienced moderate success with them, we have never accomplished what happened when we participated in the cleansing diet.

We try to keep our weight under control by working out 40 minutes per day 4 times a week. But recently we have not been able to lose any weight. In March of 2009, we added the cleanse to our weekly routine and the results were amazing. My wife lot 8 lbs. And 2 inches off her waist. I lost 12 lbs. And 4 inches off my waist. My blood pressure also went from 155 over 90 to 137 over 87. Since we completed the diet, we have more energy and we continue to lose weight.

We have already set a date for our next cleanse in 90 days.

I had tried several ways to lose weight without success during a two-year period. A friend recommended me to see Dr. Fan. Dr. Fan uses the so-called "cleansing diet" to help lose weight. I am glad I gave it a try. It really worked. How nice when I see I lost 2 lbs in the morning after a nice sleep during the night! It was so easy. I lost 15 lbs. I highly recommend Dr. Fan to those who want to lose weight.

Bell's Palsy


After over two years of regular treatments with Dr. Fan I have had NO reoccurrences of the Bells Palsy. I had only minor reoccurrence of lip swelling one time after I visited a very cold northern climate a year and a half ago and was treated by Dr. Fan and cured quickly. Since that reoccurrence in 2006, I have no lip swelling experience to date. My furrowed and red tongue is almost normal. My weight has also dropped over 70 pounds since I began treatment. Dr. Fan’s advice regarding diet and exercise as well as ongoing use of herbs and acupuncture has helped me in my weight loss. I would say my health at this time is abundant and I have not had the flu or a cold in over 1.5 years as my health has improved. The few times I have felt on the verge of illness, Dr. Fan has treated it and stopped any further onset. The herbs prescribed for flu prevention have kept me influenza free in environments that everyone was sick (at the University).

I have given many people Dr. Fan’s number and many people in my family have reaped the benefits of her expertise. I feel Dr. Fan is a part of my family. She ALWAYS makes me welcome and her compassion and caring attitude is felt powerfully when you visit for a treatment no matter if it is for a maintenance visit or for an acute condition. As long as I live in Tampa Bay area I will visit Dr. Fan for all of my Traditional Chinese Medicine needs.

Sciatica with Plantar Fasciitis


Dr. Fan,
I am writing to thank you for everything you have done for me. When I first came to you, I had persistent sciatica with plantar fasciitis in the same leg…one of which called for rest and the other for exercises. This was truly a “lose- lose” situation for me, and had me in constant pain from either my back or my foot. After only 5 acupuncture treatments, I was totally pain-free with a spring in my step! I had followed the advice of traditional western doctors for months with no relief, and you fixed it all in under 10 days! If it hadn’t happened to me, I’m not sure I would have believed this was possible. After a few more general acupuncture sessions, people started commenting on how good I look and the glow I seem to have…and ever woman loves to hear that.

I am please to report that, with your help, I am finally ready to quit smoking forever. The treatments you prescribed have worked so well that I have not suffered a lot of stress and anxiety during the withdrawal period. As someone who has tried everything to quit without success, I feel blessed to have your help and support in finally breaking this addiction.

Please feel free to share my story with others, so that they too can get on the track to good health and happiness.

Stomach Pain


March 19, 2009
I have been seeing Dr. Fan for almost three years. I first came to her because I was having horrible stomach pain, which began when I was caring for my terminally ill mother. They were alleviated my first time on the table. I have been seeing her ever since.

I am convinced that Dr. Fan gently persuading me to take precaution before I needed it is part of the reason that my trip to Tanzania, Africa was the most wonderful, fabulous, best trip ever taken by anyone adventure of a lifetime.

Part of my preparation for a three week trip I was taking in late January to Tanzania, Africa, was making sure my immune system was geared up by seeing Dr. Fan immediately prior to my departure. She suggested several herbs that I should take with me “just in case”. I was allowed one 26” suitcase and a backpack by our outfitters because we would be moving to several different campgrounds. We also had to purchase Medi-Vac insurance because we would be deep in the bush if we got sick, it would be the only route for care. We would be brought back to the U.S. So, although I had limited space, I not only took those herbs with me but I also took her Golden Throat cough drops and the homeopathic nose spray for sinusitis.

When we got back to Arusha for our last night before flying out, one of the hotel employees remembered me from the first day. He asked me how I was and I said, “Great, I wish I could go out again.” He told me that most people return to the hotel from safari with colds or flu but he could tell that I was fine.

I can never thank her enough for the great care given me by her.

I will always remember my time in Africa.

Dear Dr.Fan,
Thank you very much for treating me! I have received so much help, kindness and compassion. Ever since my first day in the office, I felt so comfortable knowing that my health condition have been improving. Your knowledge and skill on Chinese Medicine is full of sincerity and hope. The inflammation in my abdomen had once been treated prior to seeing you through antibiotics, which has side effects and cause further health issues. The inflammation, with the help of acupuncture and Chinese herbs, has been improving. The Tuina massage therapy is my favorite of all! Thank you so much.

Give up Smoking


I've tried to quit smoking numerous times and numerous ways, but always battled the craving to have a cigarette until eventually giving in and smoking again. I've had two acupuncture treatments from Dr. Fan, and though it has been only five days, I have had almost zero compulsion to have a cigarette, despite the fact that the last pack I bought is still sitting in the middle console of my car.

Palpitation


I was skeptical and now I love what Acupuncture and what Dr. Fan has done for me! My Western Dr's could not figure out why I had heart palpitations that lasted for 2hrs every other day for the past year and all it took was 4 visits to Dr. Fan with her acupuncture and herb treatment and they have just stopped. I also have energy now to exercise and my mind is clear, I am more relaxed and my hormones are also in balance. I tell Dr. Fan she is my new Favorite Person and she is ;)

Fibromyalgia


Dearest Dr. Fan,
Thank you for restoring my life, my spirit and my inner strength. After suffering for years with Fibromyalgia losing myself into a syndrome than stole everything I once prided myself on. You walk into my life and take me on a journey to wellness. It was that day forward; I've never turned back.

You've made the darkest days disappear along with pain, endless exhaustion and depression than rode with me for past 41/2 years. Something that no one thought possible you made become a reality. It is with my everlasting thanks and eternal gratitude that I will always keep you in a special place in my heart and soul.

I am truly proud to say that I know you and it is from the bottom of my heart that I will be forever grateful.

Hypothyroidism


I had been diagnosed with hypothyroidism about two years ago. Also, as far back as I can remember I have had severe problems with my menstrual cycle. When I first came to see Dr. Fan on recommendations of a good friend of mine, I was feeling very drained out with very low energy and insomnia. All the conventional medications had done me no good. Moreover, I had heard horror stories about the side effects of medications traditionally prescribed for conditions such as hypothyroidism.

After a few visits, I felt much better, my energy was back up, and I also slept well. With regular treatments for three months, my energy levels are much better and my thyroid tests are normal. I have regular menstrual cycles without multiple symptoms associated with the premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Since the past few months I have seen doctor Fan about once a month for health maintenance.

I have a six-year-old boy. Dr. Fan treated him for ear infections and fluid in his ears. She didn’t use any needles on him. She only used Chinese Pediatric Massage, which is called “Tuina”. It worked very well for him. He is a healthy boy now.

We admire Dr. Fan for her expertise and knowledge. We also thank her for her patience and kindness in listening to our problems and making treatment plans specific to our individual conditions. She really is one of the best in her field!

Infertility


After nearly 3 years of trying to conceive including 2 tries at in-vitro fertilization, we began to look at alternative methods. After researching acupuncture and being referred by my fertility clinic to Dr. Fan, we were finally successful! Combining IVF with acupuncture was the key and I'm now 9 weeks pregnant. We can't thank you enough, Dr. Fan, for helping us achieve our dream!

Eczema


I suffer from a rare skin disorder and got tired of what seemed to be useless trips to my dermatologist. After much research I made the decision to try alternative medicine, namely accupuncture. I can honestly say that Dr. Fan does an awesome job. She makes me feel completely comfortable during my visits and she takes her time. She has done wonders for me in the 2 - 3 months that I've been her patient. I would honestly advise anyone to go see her if they're having issues. I have found myself telling my friends on numerous occasions, "I don't know what she's doing exactly but I'm so glad for it!" ACCUPUNCTURE WORKS. It may take time but it works. This is after five plus years of seeing multiple dermatologists.

Snoring and Sinusitis


I took my 4 year old son to Dr Fan in hopes of getting help with his snoring. The snoring had gotten pretty severe and he was unable to sleep through the night which was causing him to be chronically tired and cranky. The recommended treatment for him was surgery. After just 2 visits and Dr Fan's recommended dietary modifications his snoring stopped. He was able to sleep through the night uninterrupted and he woke up rested and happy again. Dr Fan gave me back my "happy" boy and for that I will always be grateful!!

Knee Pain and Arthritis


Dr. Fan is by far the best acupuncturist around the Tampa Bay area. She has helped my mom reduce the pain in her knee from arthritis. She has the innate ability to truly understand her patients and treat them to solve the problem rather than just mask the issue as so many doctors will do today. She will take the time to talk to you and give you guidance to treat your ailment and takes pride when her patients heal and produce results. I initially went to see Dr. Fan for sinusitis issues which she has helped me with tremendously, and am now going to see her for overall general well being and stress relief. Both my mom and I look forward to seeing her every week and feel so relaxed after our treatments. I can truly say acupuncture is helping us both to live richer and fuller lives. Chrissy who works the front desk is also an amazing part of Dr. Fan's team and is also very knowledgeable and will take the time to talk to you about any questions you have prior to seeing Dr. Fan. If you are thinking about trying out acupuncture, try Dr. Fan as you will not be disappointed! Thank you to Dr. Fan and Chrissy!

Dr.Fan is by far the best acupuncturist, or DR of any kind, that has ever treated me for an illness. I have been seeing Dr. Fan for at least once a month for the last 7 years for a rare and incurable syndrome. Western Medicine has no treatment . Dr. Fan has been successful in keeping the manifestations of this disease in remission. I have also had far fewer colds and flu's as well. She is kind, warm and a VERY EFFECTIVE TCM practioner. She has successfully treated my wife and other family members as well. She is the best.

I have been treated by many good acupuncturist. But, Dr Fan is the best! Dr Fan has helped me with all my medical problems from the common cold, bronchitis, cough, sinusitis, stomach, gynecological, neck and back problems. I have not needed any prescription drugs or antibiotics in years since I started taking the herbs Dr Fan recommends. Dr Fan also has excellent skills in Chinese massage, herbology, and great knowledge of Western medical pathologies. I am a Licensed Massage Therapist and highly recommend my clients to Dr Fan as well.

Dear Dr.Fan,
You are the best! I have been continuing to see you for three years. I had all different problems at the beginning. You help me well reshaped and in good health. I would still like to keep seeing you once a month for maintenance to keep my good health. I drive 3 hours( from Lake City, Florida) hear and 3 hours back. You are indeed worth it. You know what you are doing. I know I am in the good hands.

I was skeptical and now I love what Acupuncture and what Dr. Fan has done for me! My Western Dr's could not figure out why I had heart palpitations that lasted for 2hrs every other day for the past year and all it took was 4 visits to Dr. Fan with her acupuncture and herb treatment and they have just stopped. I also have energy now to exercise and my mind is clear, I am more relaxed and my hormones are also in balance. I tell Dr. Fan she is my new Favorite Person and she is ;)
