Editorial review from Citysearch 10/26/2012

I went to see her after I had been really sick. I couldn't get out of bed most days, was having a bunch of symptoms and bad headaches. Without doing any kind physical exam, suggesting I see a doctor, or getting some tests done she decided to give me a bunch of supplements to treat adrenal fatigue. She also spent 15 minutes of my appt talking about my birth chart. UM, I came to see you because I'm sick not to look at how the stars are aligning. Anyway, I took them for a month and still felt like s***. Later I found out that she was totally wrong in what she thought was going on with me and that you should always do saliva testing to confirm adrenal fatigue first. You can order those tests online. She should have told me to do that. I did order those tests and my adrenals were fine. Finally, I make an appt to see an internist and it turns out I have hypothyroidism. Just be careful, it's best to get a diagnosis before you see a naturopath. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/15/2012

I love Dr. Chow! She is a great listener and is always very responsive to my emails. She has a genuine concern for your health. I went to many MD's and I still felt so crappy with my breathing problems, but the next day after I started taking the natural antibiotic she gave me, I started to see an improvement. I am not 100% better because I have an atypical weirdness, but at least I feel somewhat better from how I was before I met with Dr. Chow. more

Dr. Chow is Amazing 8/11/2011

I met Dr Chow during a period of transition in my life, I was anxious as well as suffering from so many ailments that stemmed from bad digestion. Dr. Chow spent so much time with me, talking with me about what was going on, and with her amazing, friendly, compassionate, attentive and sincere demeaner, she did what so many pracitioners had not, and that is get to the root of the problem. Dr. Chow, liteally saved my life.Through acupuncture and counseling she gave me incredible strength and courage to face the difficult tasks in my life. Through herbs, vitamins and so many other approaches she has, she was able to get to the root of exactly what was going on and for the first time in my life, I can finally say that ALL of my ailments are resolved. So I say, if you truly want to get healed, if you want a true guide and a true doctor who is absolutely 100% there for you in every way, dont walk, RUN to Dr. Chow. She is truly, truly amazing. more

Dr. Chow made a world of difference in my life!!! 11/22/2010

I have been under Dr. Chow's treatment for a moderate case of Crohn's Disease for almost two years now. The changes she helped me make to my diet and the natural regimen she has me on has changed my life. I am able to tolerate and mange my condition in ways I never dreamed possible. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Chow and trying out her suggestions. I was skeptical at first because it meant a major diet change for me but after three days of trying the new plan I was convinced! My abdominal pain was reduced by 60% in three days. I am not in remission but I can mange and live now with my Crohn's. I am so grateful to have found Dr. Chow. Do yourself and your body a favor and make an appointment today. more

Highly Recommended!! 11/21/2010

I highly recommend Doctor Chow. I first started seeing her back in the spring. She is incredibly supportive and provided the correct natural medicine to resolve my medical problems completely and naturally. I have total faith in her expertise and will continue to see her in the future shall any other problems arise. more

I am very impressed with Dr. Chow's expertise. 10/12/2010

One of my classmates was diagnosed with H1N1 Swine Flu, but found out about it only after infecting me and possibly others in our class. At first, it felt like I had come down with the flu again as in years past. However, the symptoms were by far the worst I have ever endured. I was sweating non-stop, and barely able to care for myself for more than three days. The herbs Dr. Chow had given me immediately stopped the feeling of malaise and continual sweating. I am very impressed with her expertise, and highly recommend Dr. Chow! more

Knowledgeable care and excellent treatment 10/6/2010

Dr. Chow has helped with many of my problems due to seasonal allergies. As someone who constantly gets sinus infections and terrible fatigue from allergies, she has given me a lot of compassionate support and effective treatment. She has an incredible amount of patience and is willing to answer any questions I have concerning my health. I never feel rushed and she always asks questions to make sure I understand the treatment. Her whole approach is about making sure you understand what is going on with your body. more

Knowledgeable, Supportive Doctor! 9/2/2010

I first went to Dr. Chow to help ease my constant fatigue. Her recommendations have not only totally eliminated my issues with fatigue, but have also alleviated skin dryness issues as well. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, easy to get in touch with, and very patient. In other words, Dr. Chow is a supportive doctor. I would highly recommend her to anyone who has had difficulties getting useful diagnoses or treatments in the past! more

Dr. Gigi Chow 8/4/2010

My grand mother had a cough for 8 months straight non-stop. We tried all form of treatments and medications from many different medical doctors. None of them worked until we presented her case to Dr. Chow. She diagnosed her very quickly and provided a treatment plan. Within 3 days my grandmother's symptoms disappeared. And even now, my grandmother always ask me to thank Dr. Chow for her. This is what being a doctor is all about, going the extra mile to make someone's life better. thanks Dr. Chow, you are the best. more

Knowledgeable Doctor 8/4/2010

Doctor Chow is excellent in her field, she was able to diagnose my condition quickly and provide the correct natural medication to resolve the issue. Not only did she help me, but she did it remotely without me having to step one foot in the door. I highly recommend her. more

Knowledable & Compassionate Doctor 6/20/2010

I have seen many doctors (western and eastern) and Dr. Chow has been the best yet. Some western doctors treat your body like it's a bunch of parts that have nothing to do with each other, while some eastern doctors treat your body as a whole but only seem to know how to treat allergies and smoking cessation and doesn't really know how to handle more serious conditions. Some eastern doctors are also really out there in their treatments that don't seem to work (or well haven't worked for me.) I like Dr. Chow because she acknowledges the benefits of western medicine (diagnostic tests) but then uses that information and treats you naturally. She takes as much time as needed to listen to you, takes detailed notes, is easy to reach by email with any question you may have, and really looks at the whole picture and what is going on. Also unlike in comparison to other naturopathic doctors, she is affordable and goes the extra mile to get you back your health. She's nice, has a great understanding of chinese herbs, acupuncture (and more) and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a solid naturopathic doctor. Pros: combines the best of western and eastern medicine Cons: doesn't take insurance (but is reasonable in cost) more

Highly recommended! 10/20/2009

After becoming frustrated with MDs who could only offer me prescription drugs for my gastrointestinal issues, I went to Dr. Chow. I was pleasantly surprised by the extremely comprehensive initial consultation. Dr. Chow wanted to address all the issues that were contributing to my stomach problems and she did indeed. With her recommendations, I have observed significant improvement in my condition. Although I still have some symptoms, they are much more manageable. As a whole, I found Dr. Chow to be a very bright, hard-working and dedicated doctor. Her attention to detail is exceptional and I can honestly say that she is far better than the majority of MDs I have been to. What sets her apart is her holistic approach and the fact that she takes her time and as others have noted, her excellent follow-up care. There is a long, successful career ahead for this doctor. Pros: Intelligent, thorough and skilled more

Great Doc! Very friendly and effective! 1/14/2009

I suffer from long term anxiety. To my surprise, my anxiety was greatly reduced after several sessions with Dr. Chow. I believe the key to Dr. Chow's greatness is her intuition and her thorough, comprehensive approach. She is also very knowledgeable in many natural modalities and she also has an in-depth understanding of conventional medicine. I also really like her because she always returns my calls/emails...she is definitely a very personable, knowledgeable, and responsible doctor. Pros: Treatments very effective. Very personable and knowlegeable. Always returns phone calls/emails. more


Skeptical about chiropractors? I was. And there are probably hundreds of chiropractors on one city block, right? And I had been to 8 different ones, with no relief. I got lucky in finding Dr. Brian Shapiro and Dr. Mary Scotto just two blocks from my apartment - they're at 155 East 38th Street - 212.687.5433. I had a total lack of mobility in my neck, causing me a lot pain and stress, especially on long days in front of a computer. They asked all the right questions, and after a few treatments and some good practical stress relief tips, I started to feel relief. I can now move and bend my neck in all directions and don't suffer from computer neck anymore. I also had pain in my ankles from over-exercising, and Dr. Shapiro relieved the pain with just one adjustment, and gave me exercises to do on my own. more

Dr. Chow is amazing! 6/30/2008

What can I say? Dr. Chow is simply amazing. I used to have difficulty sleeping, very little energy, and lots of pain, but within 1-2 sessions with Dr. Chow, I can proudly say that I am not even the same person as I used to be! Definitely the one of the most compassionate doctors I've ever seen. She devoted a lot of time and energy to see that I get better. Her knowledge of conventional western pathologies combine with her experience with natural methodologies make her stand out among many practitioners. One of the best qualities about her is that she listens to my concerns. She is also very intuitive! I highly recommend her! Pros: One of the best doctors out there, very convenient location, flexible appointments (weekends and evenings) more

Best Naturopathic doctor!! 3/28/2008

Dr. Chow is the best Naturopathic doctor around because she really listened to my concerns about my health and well-being, and was able to provide me with sound treatments for a wide range of personal needs such as: homeopathic remedies for clearing skin rashes on my face and upper back, increasing confidence levels while taking exams in graduate school, and even fighting tough seasonal colds with faster recovery times than that with the usual over-the-counter medications I depended on in the past. Pros: Dr. Chow is the best!!! more
