What Our Patients Are Saying About Us...
I have been a patient of Jasmine Lai's for several years and can attest to the fact that she is kind and caring while still being a consummate professional . She has been in practice for many years but continues to attend seminars to keep her knowledge current with the latest techniques. Her offices are clean and comfortable and all needles are one-use only - clean out of the wrapper and disposed of immediately after use.
My first experience with Jasmine was to treat a muscle spasm that locked up my neck. Before any treatment began she took a full medical history and discussed any other issues I had. Six weeks of treatment with acupuncture and gentle acupressure and the problem was solved, unlike treatment that I had for the same issue several years ago with a "traditional" physical therapist. He unlocked the spasm, but in the process twisted my arms around leaving me with months of pain in my shoulders. So much for "real doctors."
Since that time Jasmine has treated me for a variety of ailments including tennis elbow, pain management for arthritis and even eye muscle twitches. Because I had suffered a stoke in 2009 we discussed the long tradition of acupuncture treatment of stoke in China (which is mandatory in that country) and the amazing recovery success they have. Fortunately my stoke was small and I have not needed any therapy, but was very interested in her own experience treating catastrophic stroke victims. It is a tragedy that the US medical insurance industry is the only one in the world that does not recognize this very successful mode of treatment.
I've been going to Jasmine for just over ten years for various problems (chronic daily migraine, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and basically anything that comes up - poor sleep, asthma attacks, bronchitis). She's the most compassionate, most sincere, most professional medical practitioner I've ever known. She takes her time with each patient to understand the underlying problems of the patient's symptoms and to ensure the patient's comfort.
Here is just a personal story I'd like to share with you. My chronic migraines are very stubborn, but she has helped me manage them for years...something that five neurologists and countless medications could not do. I will never forget when Jasmine went on vacation back home to China, she contacted her former professor to take him out to dinner just to discuss my particularly complicated case. Her concern for me a half a world away on her vacation with her family touched me very deeply and is something I won't soon forget. If that is not going above and beyond, I just don't know what is.
Jasmine's practice is a clean and relaxing environment. I never feel rushed or ignored, as I often do in most doctors' offices. Jasmine give each patient her full attention, remembering the details from visit to visit; for example, she always knows that my migraines are worse when I get them on the left side of my head instead of the usual right side. My regular doctor barely even remembers that I suffer from migraines, yet Jasmine remembers details like this.
My sister is diabetic. To add to her problems, the medications that the doctor put her on caused her to have low kidney function. I told my sister to try going to Jasmine for a while, just to see if she could help. Since my sister has been going to Jasmine (only two months!), she went from stage 2 chronic kidney disease to a stage 1.
Jasmine doesn't just address symptoms, or even single conditions. She treats the whole person. To anyone who is considering acupuncture, I strongly and highly recommend her.
As a sufferer of GAD for years. I finally discovered an acupuncturist that showed me compassion and her undivided attention when discussion my condition. Her treatments have been highly effective in coping with GAD. Dr. Lai is a true professional. Highly recommended.
