For nearly ten years, Dr. Wang has treated me for back and neck pain, sciatica, and other pain due to accidents, as well as stress and rashes due to allergies, etc. I first found Dr. Wang late on a Saturday evening when I was in such terrible pain that I could barely walk. I had been examined and treated by neurologists, an osteopath, physical therapists, several chiropractors and several Chinese acupuncturists as well – for severe neck pain. Since finding Dr. Wang that lucky evening, I have been relatively free from pain for long periods of time. The first treatment was the longest, because I had been subjected to so many contradictory treatments that the original spasms had worsened. Most of the problems I have are the result of a spinal fracture due to an accident. I, as a pedestrian ,was hit in the back by a car. This fracture never properly healed. Two very excellent neurologists once told me that I can never jump, lift or stretch. Although I cannot do any of these to excess, my treatments with Dr. Wang have allowed me a very normal life without pain . In addition to acupuncture and herbal remedies, his advice is practical, given with common sense. Once a colleague of Dr. Wang , who treated me in his absence, said: “Dr. Wang has magic hands”. He is an expert in his profession. I trust Dr. Wang implicitly. He is most honest in letting me know what he is able to treat and what is beyond treatment. Besides his honesty, he is a very kind professional.
I first visited Dr. Wang with my mother-in-law, Rita who has lived on Long Island and suffered from severe back pain. She was then taking all kinds of pain-killer medications (prescribed by her doctor and purchased over the counter). She could hardly walk and slowly moved her legs with the help of a walker. What worried me the most was when I noticed the color of her face has turned yellowish. I was afraid that her liver may have been damaged. I lived in Manhattan and started searching online for an acupuncturist on the island. Rita was willing to give it a try. So I travelled to Long Island to take her to see Dr. Wang. All I remember is that Rita was a totally different person (she told everyone that she has left her pains in Dr. Wang’s office) that evening! She has become a fan of Dr. Wang ever since (she is now 88 years old and still talks about Dr. Wang with great passion). I also become Dr. Wang’s patient myself. He has treated my hypertension, my back pain (also my husband’s). I moved to Central Oregon 4 years ago but still come to see Dr. Wang whenever I am in NY. Dr. Wang is a very caring and honest doctor. If he thinks the needles won’t help you with your problem. He will tell you the truth. He is very knowledgeable with herbs. My whole family absolutely trusts and respects him greatly.
Dr. Wang is an incredible doctor, and I can’t recommend him enough. I did my research, and am a very discerning person and I am extremely impressed by him and thrilled with my results. I have seen him four times now and have about five more sessions to go, but he has helped my back and neck problems tremendously. He is very knowledgeable and nice. He always accommodates his patients and I would say he is best in his field. Stop looking else where and go to him. I believe he can cure anything.
I have never been big on acupuncture. I had a lower back pain, went to 2 doctors and physical therapy for multiple weeks. The therapist couldn’t help at all and sent me back to the doctor who didn’t know what to do. I was recommend to Dr. Wang from a friend in LA and decided to give it a try. After the first time there was a noticeable difference in my back pain. Each time I go back, it only gets better.
I wanted to find a natural way to deal with my many ailments and wanted to get off the pharmaceutical drugs and go the natural route. While researching alternative options I stumbled on reviews for Dr. Wang, and the reviews are one point! He is the BEST Acupuncturist period. He is very polite, patient and extremely knowledgeable!. He takes his time with each consultation and answers all your questions. Most importantly, the treatment works!!! If you see Dr. Wang you will not be disappointed. I will continue to see him until he stops practicing. Yes… he is that great! 🙂 Thank you Dr. Wang for helping me and being patient with me.
I take my 4 year old son to Dr. Wang because I read that acupuncture can help treat cerebral palsy. I am so amazed by the results! I can see a change in my son’s gait and his movements are much more fluid. I am so happy that Dr. Wang treats my child. He is very kind, patient and answers all of my questions. The office is amazing! It is very neat, quiet, clean and provides personal space for each client. I even love the doormen in this building. I would recommend any parent who has a child diagnosed with cerebral palsy to go see Dr. Wang. The best part is that he accepts my insurance! Very happy mother!
I chose Dr. Wang specifically b/c of his background of studying in China and being an actual doctor of Chinese Medicine. Plus he had a lot of Western credentials (teaching at Columbia U etc.). I have a lot of weird random internal problems that are kind of complicated, so I wanted to make sure I got somebody who knew A LOT. Since none of my problems are remotely life threatening, this means that when I approach western MDs for help they look at me with a blank stare like “a) I know nothing about helping you with that” and b)you’re not gonna die so why do you even want to be treated for that?” Well I want to be treated for all these things because they make for a (much) less than ideal lifestyle. I know a decent amount about the theory of acupuncture and have always seen it as the answer to those non-life-threatening problems. Acupuncturists actually know how to balance those out of whack internal systems IMO (while western doctors don’t.) So anyway, I’ve been seeing Dr. Wang for a few months and he’s helped me A LOT. Some things you notice happening right while you’re lying on the table, other things have improved more gradually. He’s extremely effective but he doesn’t use a ton of needles – he says that real acupuncture is not a lot of needles everywhere but as few needles as possible. My friend who is going to acupuncture school told me that the sign of a true master is how few needles he uses – so I guess that’s a good sign that Dr. Wang is a true master. He gave me herbs as well a couple of times in the beginning, at extremely reasonable rates (his office rates are very reasonable as well, esp. for a NYC acupuncturist at his level) And occasionally if I’m complaining about something going on with me that day, he’ll recommend I take a few of something I have in my cabinet from before, or maybe occasionally give me something new. But he by no means is an “herb pusher” trying to sell lots of herbs to rake in more $, which I’m always wary of. And his herbs really work! I mean, their effects are practically instantaneous. Also, the building and office are beautiful and very clean.
I woke up last Friday with crazy pain in my left shoulder and couldn’t even lift my arm. Was supposed to run a half marathon on Sunday so needed to do something quickly. Called Dr. Wang on Saturday morning and they fit me in immediately. His office was fantastic and he has great bedside manner. I was slightly nervous given that it was my first time doing acupuncture but he made me feel totally at ease and comfortable – even cracked some jokes! Best news of all – no more pain. He fixed me!!! Will definitely go back to see him soon and would recommend him to any friends looking to try acupuncture. And again, his office was so helpful with insurance info etc. Go and see Dr. Wang!!
I’ve had nasal polyps all my life. I had surgery as a teenager but they came back years later. I kept sneezing, I could barely breath out of my nose and I even lost my sense of smell. The ENT doctor would just prescribe me antibiotics, which puts a huge toll on my body. I felt like I needed to go a more natural route. After, I started getting treated by Dr. Wang, some sessions later I was able to breath a lot better. I wasn’t sneezing all the time and my sense of smell slowly started to coming back. I have a severe case, so I think its going to take a lot more treatments, but its nice to actually smell my coffee brewing in the morning.
I have known Dr. Wang for approximately 15 years. When I was diagnosed with ALS, and then Myopathy neuropathy, he took me as a patient . We worked together for a few years . I originally could not walk without supporting my legs. I am now walking, and enjoying life. Thanks Dr. Wang!
