I started seeing Dr. Cheng June 2016 due to infertility issues. My husband and I had already completed one round of IVF treatments and were unfortunately unsuccessful. We decided to try another round of IVF and this time include acupuncture as it was encouraged by our fertility doctor. We also did extensive research and found several success stories due to getting acupuncture treatments. So after reading many reviews on several Acupuncturists, we chose Dr. Cheng and it was the best decision we made. Dr. Cheng was very professional and at the same time very warm and inviting. He was very optimistic about the treatment plan and was very encouraging. If you are looking for an Acupuncturist who is extremely knowledgeable and caring, then Dr. Cheng should be your one and only pick. So after 31 visits, we are very excited to announce we are pregnant!!

I have debilitating pain in my lower back and left leg that limits my movement. After seeing my primary care physician and a hip and back specialist I started looking for something different than the options they were offering. By the time I went to see Mr. Cheng I was using a walker to get around with and had very limited mobility. I could barely crawl up on the table. After the first visit the pain subsided and I was able to move around better still with the aid of my walker. The third visit was were the majority of the pain and paralysis I was experiencing went away and I no longer needed the walker to get around.

My primary care physician told me I would be out form 1 to 3 months. With Mr. Cheng's help I was only out from work for 1 week. If you need pain management then Mr. Cheng can help. He has helped me get back to work with no limitations and helped save me from a lot of pain.

I absolutely recommend him and will return to him if I need additional pain management rather than taking a bunch of pain killers and steroids.

I was diagnosed with tendinitis in both of my ankles. The swelling was so bad, I was bedridden and had to file for temporary medical leave from my work. The swelling in my ankles were decreasing very slowly and I needed to find a way to get back to work as soon as possible. It wasn't till I started receiving acupuncture treatment from Dr. Chen that my ankle started to significantly get better. Dr. Chen is great doctor and he knows what he is doing. He showed me the best ways to treat my injury during and outside of acupuncture treatment. I was on crutches my first treatment and by the third treatment I was walking with ease again. If it wasn't for Dr. Chen, I still wouldn't be able to go back to work.

I had a car accident several years ago and as a result I have had multiple ankle surgeries. I was left with nerve damage, limited range of motion, and severe chronic ankle pain. After seeing Mr. Cheng, I now have more range of motion. I have feeling back in my foot and toes. After ever visit my pain significantly reduced to most days I have no pain at all. I've tried physical therapy. I've tried custom braces. I've even taken steroid injections. Nothing has ever worked in the past that has been effective or long lasting. It is amazing how much I improved just after my first visit. I am so grateful that I met Mr. Cheng. He is very caring and works very hard to find the best approach to resolve your issue.

David is 'the best'! He listens, is aware of my condition(s) and treats them effectively - at a very reasonable price. He is very caring and understands the big picture related to health and wellness. I am so happy to have found him and the clinic!

When I first visited David Chang some 4 months back, I was going through a worst phase of Fibromyalgia and he gave me a honest opinion regarding my situation and treatment plan. I started taking treatment twice a week and still continuing the same and I can feel a lot of difference in pain reduction and good energy levels. The treatment involved needles, electrical stimulation and cupping for about 40 to 50 minutes along with herbs and change in food habits. Now my situation is stabilized to a large extent but still need more sessions since its a chronic condition.

David knows what he is doing and has very good control on the treatment.

I have not put much details but, trust this review helps people to give an idea on what to expect on Acupuncture treatment for Fibromyalgia.

9/22/2014 - I have chronic neck (for the last 6 years) and knee pain (recent). David Cheng fixed my friend's back when she fell off a horse. So, I went to see him and he started on my neck. After a few visits, my neck is pain free, and I have more neck motion range than I have had in years. Next was my painful and swollen knee that I had been hobbling around on for a month, first with a cane then with a knee sleeve. He worked on my knee a few sessions, and I am pain free, and the swelling is almost totally gone. I am now back to bowling every week and riding my bike without pain. I have been to other doctors for my neck and am trying to avoid surgery, but none of the treatments so far have worked as fast. I highly recommend him and I will be going back monthly just for his maintenance treatments.

During my first appointment with David, which was about six months ago, he was extremely patient as I discussed with him my rather long medical history. After many years of traditional medicine which included epidurals, pain management, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, extensive massage therapy, manipulative medicine, treatment for fibromyalgia, craniosacral release and an unsuccessful spinal surgery three years ago, I felt that I had very few options left available for me.
I was immediately impressed with David's vast knowledge of Eastern Medicine. And with each visit I am reminded of his gentle kindness and genuine concern for me.
As a 68 year old woman, for the first time in many years, I can honestly say that I feel optimistic about my health and longevity.

I had been having back pains for a long time and used several medication to no avail. A colleague advised me to go try acupuncture. I contacted David Cheng and after 3 acupuncture sections, my back pain was gone. I can now sit properly and work without feeling the pain.
David Cheng is very professional, and very detailed in his work.
I will recommend him to anyone who needs acupuncture treatment

I first went to David for acupuncture treatment for pain in my shoulder, to "test" and see if acupuncture would work for me. After one session the pain was gone and I felt so much better! I then saw David weekly for several months to assist with hormone regulation, as my husband and I were trying to conceive. I won't say acupuncture is THE reason we conceived our baby because I believe our baby is truly a blessing from God, but it certainly helped!

David is very patient and compassionate, and I liked the fact that he is a Christian. He is genuinely concerned about your wellbeing and will do the right thing by you.

I highly recommend him!

In just two sessions I could see big improvement in my fingers. I have been having pain in my fingers for more than a year. I could not fold my fingers. I was told that I had to have surgery for each affected finger. I did surgery on one finger two years back. I wanted to avoid further surgery. My friends recommended me to go for acupuncture. I was so fortunate to be introduced to David Cheng. He knows the technique. After two sessions I continued for 9 more sessions. I could see major improvement after these sessions. David is also a very nice person. He would do the right thing for you.

I would strongly recommend any body thinking of acupuncture to go to him. I am writing this mainly to see more people benefit from his acupuncture and be happy in their life.

Have a wonderful holidays and happy new year.

Wow!! This man is truly magical. Based on the pain I described, he told me I needed cupping and acupuncture with elecric shocks and a massage. I got 5 sessions and my relief if unbelievable! Thank you David so much and I will be back if I feel anymore pain!

Thank you!

When I first visited David Cheng, I was 6 1/2 months pregnant with my first child and had just been diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy. I was suffering from extreme headaches and facial paralysis which made it impossible for me to blink my eye, smile, or talk normally. I had already seen an ENT and was trying anything I could to make a quick recovery. After researching different types of Bell’s treatment, I read some positive comments about acupuncture therapy, and figured I’d give it a shot. Since it was my first time to experience acupuncture, Mr. Cheng made sure that I was as comfortable as possible and took the time to explain everything very well. To my surprise and delight, every appointment with Mr. Cheng yielded immediate improvement! It only took 5 sessions, and I am now fully recovered. Mr. Cheng even sends me emails every now and then to check in on me and see how I’m doing, I feel like he truly cares about me. When my baby boy is born next month, he’ll be able to see his mommy smile at him, and I know it’s because of Mr. Cheng’s help. I’ll never forget how much he helped me during a difficult time.

I have been working with Mr. Cheng for a year now and he has helped me with various health issues that I have suffered through. He is patient and kind. His rates are low compared to many others. I highly reccomend him.

I was searching for an alternative option to surgery for my left shoulder. I had pain and restricted movement due to deterioration. I went to David Cheng and felt relief after the second treatment. I continued the treatments and combined with the herbal medicines regained significant movement in the shoulder. I plan to continue treatment on a regular basis to continue the healing process.
Randa Obeid. 3/2/2011
After suffering with pain and limited motion on my left shoulder for several months and trying medications and physical therapy prescribed by Orthopedic Doctors, I decided to try acupuncture. I searched on-line for acupuncturists in my area and was lucky to find David Cheng. I referred myself to David Cheng. Using a combination of chinese medicine, chinese herbs, acupuncture, and kindness, David was able to help me reduce the pain significantly and increase mobility of my "frozen" shoulder. It took only 6 sessions and now I am able to exercise my shoulder to completely gain back my strength and mobility. David Cheng is compasionate and his rates are very reasonable compared with other acupuncture clinics.
Donald Fox. 11/17/2010
Acupuncture has been a great source of support and relief for me. Having worked with David Cheng for about a year and a half, I am grateful for his wisdom, skill, and caring. His knowledge of acupuncture is enhanced by his understanding of herbal remedies and other alternative therapeutic practices.
