I have six months’ chemotherapy, I was very weak, I could eat nothing and nausea. My friend introduces me to Lei Acupuncture & Herb Clinic. I had breast cancer since 2009, and lately in July start the chemotherapy and that made my body very weak since January 2016. Dr. Lei helps me with acupuncture and Chinese medicines and even my CT scan result are get improved. The treatment and herbs helps me sleep well during night, I do not have sweat and diarrhea anymore. I lose 50lb before I met Dr. Lei and she helps me to gain my appetite. Also she helps me with the back pain I had. She helps me get rid of the pain in my back. I am able now to do what I was not before. I was very sick and stay in the bed most of the day, but now I get my energy back.

Arm and Shoulder Pain
Albert D, Los Altos, CA
I had an arm injury more than a year ago. It was kind of minor, and the doctor who saw me at the urgent care told me that it was not a big deal at all. However, it left a lingering pain near my elbow area. It was indeed not that bad, but just kept bothering me. I saw quite a few doctors, and saw some acupuncturists in the last year or so. The treatment by an acupuncturist seemed to work, but the lingering pain came back no more than a week after I stopped seeing them.
Recently I got referred to Ms Lei's practice. After my 1st visit, the pain got better already, and she said that the pain would likely be all gone if I came back for a couple of more acupuncturing sessions in the next week or so. Somewhat dubious, I decided to go back for the 2nd session. To my pleasant surprise, I didn't feel any pain in the area at all after it, and the pain doesn't come back any more now that it has been a few weeks since my last treatment. I'll definitely see her again if I've any pain related issues.

I'm writing a review on behalf of my mom who is Dr. Lei's patient. My mom had a "frozen" shoulder where she wasn't able to raise her arm up past 90 degrees for over a year now. She's gone to different acupuncture doctors but has never experienced much improvement. After only a week of acupuncture with Dr. Lei my moms arm feels a lot better!
Jullie P, Mountain View, CA
Min Lei is friendly and knowledgeable. After getting acupuncture treatment for a month for my neck and shoulder pain, I felt much better and can raise my arm without any problem.
Emily Z, Sunnyvale, CA
I heard of Dr. Lei from a friend and took my mom to see her recently. My mom has chronic shoulder and back pain, which has bothered her for a long time. Several different medicines and treatments were tried before while not much improvement. After careful and professional diagnosis, Dr. Lei recommended acupuncture therapy with some Chinese herb to my mom and this actually has been quite effective. My mom feels much better on her shoulders and back now after several sessions of treatment and the pain is simply gone. We are really grateful for Dr. Lei's excellent work!
Not only being very knowledgeable, Dr. Lei is also a very friendly person and cares a lot to her patients. My mom felt very comfortable every time seeing her. I highly recommend Dr. Lei to everyone who is seeking medical help.
leilei Z, Los Altos, CA
I went to Lei's practice for shoulder pain. Dr. Lei is very kind and patient. She gave me acupuncture treatment a couple of times. When she does it, the needles are not only limited to the problem area, they cover the surrounding areas as well. Every time, I walked out of her clinic feeling refreshed. She prescribes herb medicine as well. I would go to her office again if needed in the future.
Wenbin H, San Mateo, CA
I go to GYM regularly if it is not everyday. A while back, I hurt my left elbow when I worked on bench press exercise. Actually the elbow pain was developed gradually. I don't really recall when the pain starts, but the pain become worse and worse, and in the end I have to stop my bench press workout, and hope my elbow can self recovery. After 2-3 weeks, the pain gets better, but I found my arm can't go straight.
I was referred to Ms.Lei's Acupuncture practice. To be honest, it was my first time to try Acupuncture treatment. To my surprise, after three sessions in a week with Ms Lei, my elbow pain goes away completely, and my arm can go straight again. Actually I have restarted my bench press workout last week, and don't feel any pain at all in my left elbow.
I strongly recommend Ms Lei Acupuncture practice to anyone with sport related pain issues. I will definitely see her again if I have similar pain issues in the future

“I wouldn't hesitate at all to write my first review on Yelp to Dr. Lei! My family & I had come to Dr. Lei a few times before for various pains, headache, etc. We all found her acupuncture & herb treatments super effective and the details are worth several separate reviews. In this review, I'd like to talk about a recent miracle that has happened to me. Last Saturday, I started to experience slight pains in my neck and initially I thought it was due to a bad sleep posture which had happened to me before, so I took some rests and hoped it'd recover. However, by Sunday morning after I wake up, my neck became completely stiff and I could not move my head or turn sideways and whenever I slightly bent, I felt shockwave-like headache. It was very painful & I came to Dr. Lei's clinic right away to receive acupuncture treatment. With just a few needles in my neck for 15 minutes, Dr. Lei asked me to try move my head again and a miracle happened - I was able to lower my head & turn up to like 60 degrees on each side. The headache was completely gone even though I still felt sour when i turned. I received 1 more session the next day and the pains & stiffness in my neck was completely gone in just 2 days.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Lei for her professional excellence & personalized care for each patient!”
Sara P, Sunnyvale, CA
Although I've been using yelp for awhile, this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review. I went to Dr. Lei for wrist and neck pain that I've been dealing with for years. I feel better after a few visits than I have from dozens of treatments with other types of therapies. They are also professional and courteous here. I'm so happy that I found Dr. Lei.
Lucas L. Urbana, IL
Last Saturday, I started to experience slight pains in my neck and I thought it was due to a bad sleep posture which had happened to me before, so I took some rests and hoped it'd recover (usually the next day). However, by Sunday morning after I woke up, my neck became almost completely stiff and I could barely move my head or turn sideways - it just felt stuck & hurt a lot when I tried to apply some force. Even worse, I'd feel a shockwave-like headache when I bent or lower my head.
I called Dr. Lei & told her my situation & had hoped to receive a treatment the following week. She was very concerned & asked me to come in right away in the afternoon. In her clinic, she asked me a few more questions & examined my neck & recommended an acupuncture treatment to me. She basically put in a few needles at the back of my neck as wells as my upper back & used a heater to heat up my neck for 15 minutes. I barely felt anything when she put in the needles & felt warmness around my neck - it was very relaxing throughout the treatment. After the treatment, Dr. Lei asked me to turn my head & surprisingly I was able to turn to about 60 degrees to each side before feeling sourness & my headache was completely gone when I lowered my head. It was super effective on the spot & I was asked by Dr. Lei to do a slow exercise with my neck every few hours for the rest of the day. The next day, I felt a lot better & there was still a little bit of sourness when I turned to about 80 degrees. I received 1 more session from Dr Lei that day & my stiffness/sourness was gone.
I was very thankful that Dr. Lei made her time to see me on weekend & cured my neck within 2 days & was also impressed by her professional excellence & the amount of care she put into me as a patient. I'd trust her for future treatments & would highly recommend her to any of my friends.
Peng W, Sunnyvale, CA
My father had a shoulder pain for nearly two months. Dr Lei recommends a series of acupuncture treatment. In each treatment, She is very careful checking the pain spots, adjusting the temperature to comfortable level, and also suggesting the recovery activities. My father feels better and better after each treatment. Now, he could move his shoulder freely without pain. We really appreciate Dr Lei's help!
Coala R, Mountain View, CA
I never thought about acupuncture as an option for myself and only walked into Dr Lei's Office because my mother wanted to see her for a back issue and I brought her by car. When we got to the practice my mother offered to pay for the sessions with Dr. Lei if I was interested in trying it out. Nothing to lose, so explained that I had wrist and underarm pains ever since I had my babygirl six months ago. Dr Lei asked a lot of questions about exact location and behavior of the pain and told me that she thinks she could solve my issues in 3-4 sessions. After the first treatment I already felt an immediate improvement, even more on the second and third day after the treatment. After the third session Dr Lei said I might not need another session and should give her a call two days later to see how I was doing. I came in for a 4th session and my wrists are so much better now after 4 session within 2 weeks. I might still go for a last visit, but I really appreciate that Dr Lei doesn't try to push unnecessary visits on her patients. That really creates trust on my side to come with other issues in the future (in addition to the obvious success of the treatment of course). Don't worry if Dr Lei sometimes seems a bit scattered - when it comes to setting the needles she knows exactly what she's doing I will be back for birth prep and certainly for other muscle/nerve related issues. Next step - bring my husband with his digestive issues.
Amy L, San Jose, CA
As a worker in Silicon Valley, I have to use computer everyday. So for a long time, I have experienced pain in my wrist. They call it carpal tunnel (mouse wrist). And for these days, it's getting worse. No matter what practice I do, I still feel the pain in the wrist and lower arm. After I told Dr. Melinda Lei my pain, she started to putting needles. About 20 minutes, I felt loose in my wrist! And the pain in my lower arm has gone! Thank you, Dr. Melinda! So far, I only had two treatments. Dr. Melinda is very professional and care for the patients! I highly recommend her!
Belle S, Cupertino, CA
After 3 visits, my shoulder and neck pains were completely gone, which was exactly what Dr. Lei told me. Dr. Lei is very patient and experienced, and her assistant Amy is very helpful and nice too. I am happy with the result and will recommend to my friends.

Dr Lei cures from Migraines!!!
I was suffering from Migraines for 1.5 month, it happened everyday and prevented me from doing anything, my physician couldn't help with all her conventional medications, then I decided to try Acupuncture. I found Dr Lei on yelp, I scheduled an appointment and came to see her. I didn't know what to expect as I never had acupuncture before, Dr Lei was very welcoming and she explained the treatment, she questioned me about my daily schedule, eating habits and medical history and gave free advice for healthy living, what should I eat and what not, etc. Her clinic is very clean and she always make sure you are comfortable.
I had total of 4 treatments, each time the gap between the migrants attacks increased, after the 4th time, it didn't came back, for the last 3 months I didn't suffer even once.
If you are suffering from Migraines - this is the place you should go!
Milena K, Sunnyvale, CA
“Doctor Lei Care made me feel that I was in safe hands!
I was very pleased with my experience at Doctor Lei Acupuncture & Herb! I had painful migraine and pains on my neck. Doctor Lei treat me with lender loving care, because she really do care! I have always been able to talk to her and get my problems resolved. Coming here is like dealing with trusted family. Would not consider changing doctor Lei!
I really appreciate your weekend hours... hours when our regular doctors won't talk to us or see us, unless we're in the hospital. Good for you, keep up the good work!”
Shirley L, Berkeley, CA
"Dr. Lei has cured my mother's migraines after four treatments. If anyone else is in a similar situation, Dr. Lei is definitely worth a try."
Nicole F, Sunnyvale, CA
"Very good Acupuncturist. I suffer from frequent severe migraines and she is able to make them much less painful if having one, and stop more from coming."
D S, Mountain View, CA
I have had great results with Dr Lei for energy, concentration, mood and sleep problems. I could tell she genuinely cared about helping. I came to her after my western doctors gave me no help and didn't even think I had a problem.
Sally G, San Mateo, CA
I went to see Melinda Lei due to an awful cold/ cough. My cough was very strong and was only getting worse. I'm new to the area and decided to take a leap of faith based on the positive reviews.
Melinda was very sweet and took her time understanding my current situation and recommended acupuncture and herbs. She checked up on me throughout the day and within 24 hours my cough was very light and almost gone. All my other body aches were completely gone. She asked that I return to get another herb to help heal my lungs since my cough was so severe. I felt SO much better!
I would go back to her for other issues in the future!
I had another great experience with Melinda! She helped my 3 year old son recover from a terrible cough/cold/ developing ear infection and luckily recovered without having to take antibiotics! I had taken him to the pediatrician and he checked his ears and he indicated he was developing an ear infection in one of his ears and to just give him Motrin for the pain. With the herbs Melinda prescribed, his pain went away and he started to clear up and his cough started to subside in less than 24 hours! I'm so grateful!
Christy T, Sunnyvale, CA
Dr Lei is amazing. She prescribed acupuncture for w virus I had picked up, and within 10 minutes into the session I was no longer congested. The herbs she gave cleared the virus in 3 days. I had this awful virus before I saw Dr Lei for 9 days and I was not getting better at all. I am so grateful for Dr Lei. I will be back the next time I get a virus. If you have never tried traditional Chinese medicine, you should give Dr Lei try. You won't regret it. She also takes insurance, which is really wonderful.
H B, Brentwood, CA
I got a very bad cold in Dec with fever, cough, runny nose and headache. I did not take any medication and thought that I would sleep it off, but it got worse on the third day. I went to see Ms. Lei. She treated me with acupuncture, at the end of which my cough reduced and headache was gone. She also gave me some herb to take home. I followed her directions to drink the herb tea at home. The next day my fever and runny nose was gone. I have never had a cold gone away so quickly.
After having a good experience, I decided to take my young son to see Ms. Lei. He was 2 year and 8 months old. About a year ago, he started having trouble gaining weight. The main cause was he had very little appetite. We had seen dietician for a year. Even though we tried everything the dietician suggested, he still did not want to eat much and meal time was always a struggle. After diagnosis, Ms. Lei gave me some herbs for him to drink at home. After two days drinking the herb tea, my little boy started eating double serving size that he used to eat at meal time. He would sit down at the table by himself and feed himself. No more chasing him around for feeding! He also started eating the foods he used to reject. We saw the dietician 2.5 weeks after he saw Ms. Lei. The dietician was surprised about his weight gain.
I also have chronic pain in my right leg, elbow and wrist. My case has been challenge because there are some many pain points to treat. I have had a few sessions and things are already improving noticeably. Combining with acupuncture, she also gives me herbs to use at home, when I can't make it to the clinic at the frequency needed due to my schedule. She has been very patient and finding ways to accommodate my schedule.
Ms. Lei is passionate about helping her patients. She takes time during the treatment sessions and never rushes them. She follows up and checks effectiveness of the treatments, answers questions, and provides advice of care at home.
I highly recommend Ms. Lei. If you have a problem, you definitely should give yourself a chance to get better quickly by seeing her.
“After I delivered my first baby last October, it occurs to me that my resistivity has dropped a lot and I get sick more often than before. I caught a cold couple weeks ago. I had a sore throat first and then a fever of 105 F, which stopped me from breastfeeding my baby. I tried not to take any antibiotics which might harm the baby through breastmilk, so I went to see Dr. Lei and wished I could get effective but mild treatment. She took my pulse, checked my tongue and prescribed me personalized Chinese herbal medicine according to my symptoms. I was told to take the medicine three times a day, five hours apart. I took once after I got home that night and went to sleep. On the next morning, my body temperature returned to normal, which was far beyond my expectation. Most importantly, the medicine had no side-effect at all, which enabled me to breastfeed my baby again once my condition was stable. I feel so lucky and grateful for having met Dr. Lei who has cured me and relieved my stress as being a nursing mother.”
Kristy Y, Los Altos, CA
I have been going to Dr Lei for last two years for many different issues, digestive, premenopausal symptoms, and joints pain. Her magic little needles have always provides immediate relief of my symptoms. Before I see Dr Lei, I went to all western doctors, the test and answers I got from doctors were always 'you have no problem', 'take acid reducer', 'eat whatever you feel good, stop eating whatever you don't', 'take pain killers 3 times a day for 10 days'. None of them fixed the root of my problems at all.
Then I switched my gears to homeopathic doctors. They are better, like Chinese medicine, homeopathic doctors understanding more the chain reactions between different organs. Homeopathic doctors would suggests me some herbs/vitamins based on our conversation/blood test/stool sample test. I did get some relief from taking some herbs, but I also got big bills. $350/hour, cash only. I have good insurance, but they only reimbursed me very small amount, like around $50, can't remember exactly now. After I spent nearly $2000 on homeopathic, I stop going. First, my symptoms still come and go, second, it's big $$ every time I talk to them.
Then, I was introduced to Dr Lei by my friend. I was amazed Dr Lei was able to tell how I feel by feeling my pulses on my both wrists and the color/shape of my tongue. OMG, I can't lie to this woman. She can see thru me. I almost get some reliefs every time I left her office. Her herbs also help my digestive and stress symptoms.
I also brought my son(15 years old) to Dr Lei about 2 weeks ago due to his cold because his coughing was getting worse, and breathing was getting short and fast. (My son has mild asthma and his lung capacity is very low because he was born with many other health issues. He was even admitted to hospital 9 months ago to clean mucus in his lung.) Dr Lei again checked his pulse and tongue, and prescribed him some herbs. My son took one set of herb before we left Dr Lei's clinic. On the way home, he told me he had already felt much better. His cough and cold has continued to improved dramatically next few days. I was really shocked and happy how quickly he has healed. In the past, my son's pulmonary doctors always asked him to take steroids inhaler, which left him many other issues.
I love Chinese medicines, and definitely highly recommend Dr Lei. Dr Lei may not tell you, but her grandfather, her mom and her sisters were all practice Chinese medicine. It's a family tradition and I'm sure she must have received many good tips/secrets from her families.
Sg S, San Jose, CA
I have been suffering from some bleeding, discomfort and irritation passing stool for more than a year. I also had a history of constipation. The condition was in some ways chronic and very uncomfortable. Ms Lei treated me with acupuncture as well as herbs and even provided an ointment. From the first acupuncture session, the condition started improving, Over a period of 5 sessions, there has been marked improvement and I feel so much better and the symptoms have totally disappeared. I found Lei to be very considerate, helpful and caring person. She follows up on each visit, checks on progress before providing the next treatment. I would definitely go back to her for any health issues in the future.
Peng G, Sunnyvale, CA
I'm young and in reasonably good health. However, I had been suffering from constipation for a while - I had to sit for a long time, frequently, almost an hour, for stool to come out. Needless to say it was embarrassing and irritating, and many times, drove crazy people who had the bad luck to wait for the bathroom occupied by me. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be an effective treatment affordable to me, until I tried Melinda Lei's treatment via acupuncture. Hard to believe, but 15 minutes into my first acupuncture session, I had to ask her to remove the needles in a hurry so I would run to the toilet in time for (s...., you guess it). After a couple of follow-up sessions, i'm not bothered by constipation any fmore

"Dr. Lei has become the go-to doctor of my family if any health concerns arises. She's very knowledgeable in traditional Chinese Medicine especially herbal formulas that usually have quick results. My husband went to Dr. Lei with eczema which is very itchy. We were skeptical about the cause of the eczema as he had never had it before, we even thought it was bed bug bites. Dr. Lei was able to quickly find out the cause and with just 2-3 treatments plus one week of herbal formula, the symptoms were completely gone. She also quickly addressed his pain in soles of feet which was hurt in biking.”
Jin X, San Diego, CA
"I brought my mom to Dr. Lei's clinic because of the severe eczema she had. My mom had multiple allergies in the past (hives from cold air, rashes from topical rubbing alcohol etc), and from April she had a bad flare of eczema which had not been controlled by various OTC creams, she even did two weeks of food elimination trial with little success.
When we walked into Dr. Lei's clinic, it has been 4 months since the first onset of eczema and she couldn't even lean on something while sitting because of the eczema on her back. During the first acupuncture treatment my mom started to feel better. Now it's been almost a month and my mom's eczema has been cleared. Her allergy to topical rubbing alcohol has been improved as well. She is not using any other intervention besides the acupuncture and herbs (which are good quality herb powders from Taiwan and easy to take), I feel these two together helped to balance and strengthen my mom's immune system.
Thank you so much Dr. Lei!"
Chang L, Lafayette, CA
I had hives for about a year, my primary care physician couldn't offer much help other than asking me the take zyrtec, which works. But I can't fall asleep whenever I stop taking the pill for 3+ days.
My friend recommended Dr Lei to me. I have never tried Acupuncture before so I thought maybe it will help. What a magic! After 4 treatments I no longer need to take the zyrtec pills, the hives have definitely got better and I can have sound sleep without needing those pills.
Definitely check this place out, Acupuncture worked like magic for me :)
Bobby C, Sunnyvale, CA
I have chronic eczema (atopic dermatitis) and dealt with it most of my life. I visited two different acupuncturists over the years - one in Palo Alto during mid 1990s and one in Santa Clara in the late 2000's. Besides the acupuncture treatments, the practitioners prescribed over-the-counter herbal formulas. The treatments were never completely effective, so I stopped after a year or two with each. And I managed by getting steroid shots at my dermatologist when necessary, and modifying diet to prevent build up of heat in my system. Learned I am Yin deficient and have excess wind heat causing my skin to itch and be excessively dry sometimes.
I had a recent flare up during the holiday season and and got another steroid shot - it worked for about 3 weeks, but then my condition returned. So I decided to search for another acupuncturist, but someone local. After reading through several Yelp reviews for offices in the area, I chose Dr. Lei's practice. The fact that Dr Lei offers Sunday hours was a big plus, and her office is very close to where I live. She took my phone call on a Saturday night and was able to see me the next day. Dr Lei's diagnosis and treatment has been more effective after two visits than I ever had with my previous acupuncturists. And she offers high quality, specialized formulations of herb powders from Taiwan for each specific patient. I am still dealing with the eczema since I've only seen her two times, but she is definitely worth visiting.

"Dr lei is very nice and helpful. After i got two acupuncture from her. My back and elbow pain decrease a lot. specially for my back pain. i got it for almost 8 years and it is solved by Dr Lei for only two visits. it is very helpful."
Val S, Cupertino, CA
"After months of back pain, including sciatica pain, Dr. Lei was able to treat my pain within 4 sessions! She clearly listened me to learn the location and severity of my pain. I have been pain free for over 9 months. Dr. Lei's warm and friendly professional manner complements her highly skilled medical training and traditional medicine knowledge. I highly recommend Dr. Lei."
James S, San Jose, CA
A few weeks ago, I went to Dr. Lei's clinic for sciatic pain. She gave me acupuncture treatment two times plus my exercises, now pain was gone totally.
Rong Z, Sunnyvale, CA
"One week ago, my seasonal stomach ache is back again. When the weather begins to cool in every late autumn, my stomach felt cold and pain. The symptoms come and go frequently in the whole morning. I couldn't eat or drink anything before afternoon. I have tried other ways to reduce my pain, drinking warm water, ginger tea or eating soda cookie etc, None of them fixed my problems at all. I went to Lei Acupuncture & herb clinic. Dr. Lei is a very professional acupuncturist. She is good at all therapy of Chinese traditional medicine. She diagnosed the exact cause of disease accurately through taking my pulse and watching my tongue in the first few minutes. Then, she suggested me to take 3 days instant herb medicine with two times per day. I supposed to have 3-5 times treatment, but after took herb medicine at the Dr Lei's clinic for the first time, my stomach felt warm obviously. I got better completely after two days. It's amazing. Thank you. I would highly recommend Dr, Lei."
Richard L, Sunnyvale, CA
"I am 88 years old and have a history of 3 major falls. On the last fall, I hit my tailbone. The pain was terrible. Dr. Melinda Lei, a third generation Chinese Medicine Doctor & acupuncturist, was fantastic! Within 3 sessions, no more pain. Actually, the pain was 96% gone after the 1st session. I never felt the needles going in or coming out. She is a true doctor."
Lucy L, San Jose, CA
I have been having sharp pain in my lower abdomen due to endometriosis. Aside from the pain, endometriosis has affected me in my overall energy, poor appetite due to hormonal imbalance. Dr Lei treated me with herbs and acupuncture for 6 weeks. The degree of pain have reduced and my overall health has improved.
Dr. Lei is a caring physician and I will continue my treatment.
Amit C, Sunnyvale, CA
I had severe lower back pain twice this year. Each time I went to Dr. Lei for acupuncture treatment and it worked wonders! I did not believe that acupuncture would be able to fix my pain, but it did miraculously! It took 6-7 sessions each time, but each session helped me get little better till it got all fine. I would recommend acupuncture by Dr. Lei for curing back pain.
Sylvie X, San Francisco, CA
"I've struggled with acne for years, but after taking her medicine it suddenly improved by leaps and bounds, now my skin is whiter, healthier, shinier, and my acne scars are barely visible! 100% would recommend!"
Pat C, Cupertino, CA
I had severe facial pain for months due to trigeminal neuralgia. Lei Min treated me using acupuncture with great success. It took a few visits, each time I felt the pain lessening.
Lei Min is very experienced in acupuncture. She's really interested in helping people. I will seek her help again if needed.
Xin W, Los Gatos, CA
I had suffered vaginitis for more than 2 years before I knew Dr. Melinda Lei. The itching and burning drove me crazy! my friend recommended me to see Dr. Melinda Lei, a professional Chinese Doctor. She treated my vaginitis with acupuncture and herbs in 2 cycles. So far I have been totally free from that uncomfortable vaginitis about one year. My life quality was highly improved. Dr. Lei also treated my cold, coughing, headache as well as other women disease. I recommend Dr. Melinda Lei to all my friends.
Anabel L, Mountain View, CA
I suffered from nerve damage and facial paralysis (mild Bell's Palsy) on the right side of my face after being exposed to strong winds in April. I immediately went to a Western doctor and took anti-inflammatory and steroid medications for a week, which helped quite a bit, but I did not heal completely. I went to Doctor Lei, who administered acupuncture needles on my face, hands, arms, stomach, and legs. After the first session, there was a noticeable difference. We did this for 4 days in a row, which made my condition improve drastically within one long weekend. I had leave to go back to school, during which I drank herbal medicine she prescribed me. By the time I came back here in the Bay Area this June, I was already about 90% healed. I still went to her every other day for several weeks to make sure there wouldn't be any sudden setbacks. For the past couple weeks, I've been seeing her twice a week and drinking herbal medicine, and we are continuing to gradually decrease the frequencies of our sessions.
I am completely healed now thanks to Doctor Lei. I would strongly recommend her, not only for her expertise, but also for the way she interacts with her patients. She does her best to understand your situation, personalizes treatments, and reaches out to you to ask how you are doing. She is friendly and respectful and makes sure you feel well taken care of.
Cathy L, San Francisco, CA
This is not my first time to use herbs when I am sick. But! my experience with Dr. Lei's Chinese medicine was nothing but positive. she is very helpful, knowledgeable and always care about her patient. I had some symptoms of food poisoning (stomachache and diarrhea) on Monday after eating some veggies from one restaurant. Dr. Lei treat me with some herbs and I got recover around half hour.
Tao L, Sunnyvale, CA
I had chronic diarrhea (IBS) for many years. And the western medicine/treatment did not really help too much. After searching online, I went to Dr Lei's clinic.
She is very nice, patient, and professional. She keeps notes for each patient and always checks previous record at the beginning of a treatment (it does not happen to every acupuncturist based on my previous experience). Moreover, she often checks how I feel between treatments via text message.
Most importantly, with needle and herb treatment, I felt obvious improvement in the first week, and I feel much better now (after several months). Great work and I would recommend Dr. Lei to everyone!
Karen W, Sunnyvale, CA
Very good acupuncturist! I've been to many around the Silicon Valley and she was by far the best in terms of her practice and the quality of the medicine that she prescribes.
