Regained my core strength back 4/5/2011

A simple paragraph of words does not do Cara Frank justice. Cara started treating me a few months ago when my family doctor and several specialists could not help. I have had numbness and weakness in my extremities for 6 months and they could find no treatment to help my symptoms. Cara Frank helped me with her expert skill in Chinese acupuncture and herbal therapy. Today, my strength and energy is back. I feel less stress and more empowered. My numbness is minimal and I am myself again. If you are considering Chinese acupuncture treatment, go to see Cara! more

Recommend strongly for fertility treatments!!! 10/21/2009

I have been seeing Cara for 9 months now. When I first saw Cara, I had six pregnancies of which five miscarried. I had been going to fertility doctors for 4 years after the second miscarriage. It did result in 1 live birth which I am very happy about. I went through numerous treatments with fertility drugs and IUI in hopes of having a second baby. Eventually, I gave up - the drugs were affecting me emotionally and physically and I was also advised by my fertility doctor that it would not be prudent to subject me to more drugs. I had heard that acupuncture was effective at treating fertility. My visits to another acupuncturist did not yield results. I moved back to Philadelphia and my previous acupuncturist recommended strongly for me to see Cara. Cara, from our initial meeting, provided a comforting and compassionate environment for me. She understood all the emotional and physical issues I was experiencing. Soon after seeing her, I became pregnant. She provided a holistic approach to keeping my pregnancy with a diet to make sure the baby ""sticks"" and herbs to keep the pregnancy strong. She was always available for my needs through visits, email and phone calls. I really felt she was personally invested in making sure the baby made it. I am now on my 39th week and happily anticipating the birth of my baby. This has been the most supportive and productive healthcare I have had and opened my eyes to a more balanced, healthier lifestyle with the use of Chinese medicine. She definitely does not take a cookie cutter approach to treating her patients, and customizes care based on a person's needs and lifestyle! Pros: Balanced and focused attention and care more

Recharge your body and mind! 3/21/2009

I first came to see Cara because she was highly recommended for her expertise in Chinese herbs. I was in need of a ""body charge"" for my autoimmune system and didn't want the traditional medical approaches that had helped to get me in the condition I was in. Boy, did I get a REAL body charge when she combined her knowledge of herbs with acupuncture! When my session is complete, I often joke that I feel drunk. The truth is, my body feels completely relaxed and refreshed, my mind peaceful. Cara is amazing- she has helped me tremendously with my myriad of medical issues. Pros: totally body and mind care! more

Amazingly attentive health care practitioner 3/5/2009

Having been a patient of Cara Frank's for many years now, I cannot express what a caring and kind practitioner she is.I have many health challenges and Cara was the first to make me feel that these were in fact challenges that she and I would address together as a team. She is meticulous, extemely thorough, and a wonderfully attentive listener. I have recommended Cara and Six Fishes to many of my friends and associates and will continue to do so. Pros: Attentive, thorough, caring and extremly clean Cons: occationally parking is an issue more

Compassionate Care 10/24/2007

Cara Frank is wonderful. I have gone to her for two years and she has successfully treated me for both acute and chronic conditions. Her treatments and knowledge of herbs are amazing. Cara's experience and wisdom is a rarity. Her new office is comfortable and she always treats me with kindness, respect and compassion. I would highly recommend her. Pros: Great care more

Best combination acupuncture, herbologist, caregiver in her area. 10/21/2007

Well, where to start.\r I found Cara via a circuitous route of desperate calls and failed visits to Chinese 'professionals' to complement my traditional medicine. I'd been to Chinese doctors who, though I'm certain 'knew their business', were unable to extend a personal and caring element that I immediately felt when I contacted Cara. I knew as soon as I spoke to her on the phone, and spent a full 1/2 hour telling her of the myriad of coexistent problems I was experiencing. Though initially I contacted her for womens' health issues and simple gallstones, eventually, I ended up with very serious health concerns that she was able to assist with as well. She weaves her natural approach to care with a solid awareness of traditional approaches, and - on the rare occasion when purely natural approach is not sufficient on its own - will recommend a solid combined approach. She is not focused solely on her own type of care, if a combination of several ends up helping her patient. It's not even a question as to whether I would recommend her. I've done so repeatedly in the more than 10 years I've known her! Pros: visits are like a 4yo to the cookie jar - comfortable warm surroundings, with goodie benefits more

Simply the best 10/3/2007

I found Cara four years ago when I was seven months pregnant with twins and looking for a practioner to help me avoid a C-section. No no one would see me--until I called Cara. I see her still, only now I'm recovering from cancer. Now as then, she helps me help myself. She provides truly person-centered care, taking the time to listen and respond. The new office is warm and relaxing and the herbs are awesome. I would follow her anywhere--she is the best. Pros: ambience, quality of service, free parking (street) Cons: non more

Best Accupuncture & herbalist in CC Philadelphia 9/11/2007

I went to see Cara with so many problems. I was having women issues, GI stomach problems, recovering from a Mercury Detox and just an overall feeling of BLAH. Cara brought me back to health with herbs and accupuncture. After getting healthy, I became pregnant and went back to her because I was a day late and fearful of getting induced. She naturally induced me and that night I gave birth. I have also had Cara do NAET on both my baby and myself. We both had soy allergies and today, I drink soy milk. Before when I would drink soy milk, the baby would get cradle cap but now..he has no reaction after I eat soy. I think she is great. Pros: Cara listens and she thinks out of the box. The office is really relaxing. Cons: Parking is on the street but it is worth it. more

there is nothing more important than your health 9/11/2007

I found Cara through a mutual friend and then soon realized how renown she is. This is important because I can rely on her expertise. After all, I know nothing of herbs and acupuncture. She is warm, caring, and responsive. For me, Cara is a life saver. She has helped me emotionally and physically fight stage four colon cancer. Chemo and radiation has been easy for me and I truly believe it has alot to do with being positive as well as the herbs Cara formulates, which are designed to give the exact results I have experienced. I would not trade her for any thing. Pros: She is one of most important practitioners in herbology. Cons: N/A more

Cara cares 10/21/2005

I went to Cara after seeing 3 different doctors and being very frustrated with their inability to figure out what was wrong with me. She took her time with me and seemed to really care about me. She was able to accurately figure out what was wrong and her acupuncture and herbal treatments were effective in treating my health issues. I highly recommend her, and I have recommended her to a number of my friends. more
