Editorial review from Citysearch 7/2/2012

I had a condition called De Quervain on my wrist. My doctor recommended several treatments that did not work. The last resort was surgery. An acquaintance suggested that I see Dr. Zhao for accupuncture. Dr. Zhao was very nice and worked hard on my hand treatments. It took a few months and I am happy to say that the pain in my hand is gone. more

From strong pain to no pain 10/5/2010

In the early summer, I had spinal surgery and almost immediately after I suffered from an excruciating back pain that went all the way down to my right foot which prevented me from sleeping and subsequently, became depressed. I read the reviews online about Dr. Zhao's clinic and felt compelled to try Acupuncture for the first time. more

Very Knowledgeable! 12/7/2009

I went to Ying as a last resort before starting invasive fertility treatments. After many months of trying to conceive, I was able to get pregnant twice but both pregnancies ended in early miscarraige. We were devestated and desperate, and while I wasn't optimistic I made an appointment for a consultation with Ying. She performed an exam where she checked my tongue and pulse and then asked lots of questions about my lifestyle, stress level, sleeping habits, cycle, whether I felt hot or cold, and more. It made so much sense that she didn't just focus on my menstrual cycle like the fertility doctors did and rather took a holistic approach to fertility. Ying was so knowledgeable and friendly that I began treatment that day. Each time I came in, we discussed my symptoms, looked at my temperature charts and she adjusted treatment accordingly. In a month I was pregnant! I continued the treatments throughout my first trimester to avoid another miscarriage and now I'm thrilled to say that I'm 33 weeks pregnant and looking forward to meeting my baby girlsoon. The treatments were very pleasant and relaxaing and I always felt refreshed after leaving her office. Ying is very caring and genuinely concerned with the welfare of her patients. I would recommend her to anyone with fertility problems. more

Acupuncture does work! 6/7/2009

I went to Dr Zhao looking for an explanation and/or solution to some anxiety/stress symptoms. After talking to Dr Zhao, she quickly pinpointed my problem/symptoms as the result of stress accummulation over a long period of time. I was a bit incredulous about the treatment but after listening to her explanation I kinda decided to try it out. It turns out, this stuff really works.. I've witnessed some amazing improvements over my condition and every time I can't wait for the next session so I can make myself feel better. Dr Zhao is WONDERFUL, she really cares about you. Pros: Great results in such a short time.. Cons: Only If you don't like needles more

AMAZING 1/9/2009

I never believed in Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine or Alternative Medicine until I started receiving treatments from Ying. She is the most amazing practitioner of alternative medicine there is. I bring everyone I know to her ? and they are all in agreement. Since I started treatments, I am NEVER sick. These days - life is stressful, and she teaches you about understanding your body and taking care of yourself. She can help cure many aliments without harmful medications. The work that she has done helping people with chronic pain and fertility is amazing. You too will become a believer! She is the best. I was shocked to see Citysearch had reviews for her (I thought it was just for Restaurants/Bars) ? so I felt compelled to share my wonderful experience. Pros: She is the best! more

Ying is the best! 12/30/2008

I can't say enough positive things about Ying Zhao. She is very knowledgable and kind. The moment you meet her you will understand what I mean. She genuinely cares about her patients and is very accommodating. She took care of my elderly mother like she was her own. I've been to other places for acupuncture/acupressure and they can't compare to the attention and service you get from Ying Zhao. I highly recommend her. Pros: Excellent Acupuncture/Acupressure, convenient location more

Dr. Zhao Helped Me 12/26/2008

I am a runner, and runners from time to time get injured. Mine was a severly strained hamstring. I tried massage and conventional medication like ibuprofen, as well as gentle stretching. Nothing was working and I could not run. So I tried acupuncture from Dr. Zhao. She quickly diagnosed the problem and applied her needles to the troubled area, using electro-stimulation. Afterward, she provided a brief pressure-and-release massage to the exact spot on the hamstring that was in a knot. Fortunately I responded to the first treatment, but had two more treatments for good measure. I was able to run normally within a week. more

Wonderful acupuncturist 8/6/2008

I first went to see Ying Zhao after coming off of birth control pills and suffering from secondary amenorrhea. My husband and I desperately wanted to get pregnant at the time but unfortunately, I didn't ovulate for nearly a year after coming off the pill. I went to see Ying in the winter of that year and within 4 months, not only was I ovulating again, but I became pregnant right away. Now I am the mother of a beautiful, healthy 3 month old boy! I couldn't be more pleased with the service I received. Ying is a wonderful acupuncturist. She is extremely knowledgeable, attentive, kind and doesn't overcharge like so many other fertility doctors and acupuncturists do. She really just wants to help people and she sure helped me. I honestly cannot thank her enough and would go back again in a heartbeat if I needed to. I highly recommend using her for any acupuncture needs. Pros: Great service, effective treatment, very reasonably priced more

YOU HAVE TO DO IT. 7/2/2008

I've suffered from a painful back/neck spasm for several years. I somehow managed the pain and stiffness over that time, but six months ago I had a real crisis that forced me to seek medical attention. I began traditional physical therapy twice per week. Though I was careful with my activities and disciplined with my exercises at home, four months into treatment it was still too painful to walk around with my purse over my shoulder. Dr. Ying was recommended to me by a friend who had excellent results with his lower back - and I regret not having done this sooner. Dr. Ying is extremely professional and caring. I'm amazed of how well she knows where my pain is and how careful and knowledgeable she is while treating it. I still have a few treatments to go, but have improved so much, so quickly. Thank You Dr. Ying :) Pros: Professional, caring service. Location. more

Acupuncture Works!! 11/13/2007

When people bring up acupuncture, they ask questions like, ?Does that stuff really work?? Since they are generally uninformed, these folks view acupuncture as some type of pseudoscience. Pros: Treatments Actually Work As They Are Intended Cons: None that I can think of more

Ying Acupuncture Center 8/25/2007

I sought treatment from Dr. Ying Zhao as a result of an injury I suffered during exercise classes. The injury was to my left ankle and the swelling expanded to the size of a grapefruit. The pain from the injury was very excruciating and I was unable to walk withour limping. With only two treatments from Dr. Ying Zhao, the swelling subsided and now there is no pain at all. After barely being able to walk I am now returning to both my exercise classes and to the golf course. I come from a medical family with both my grandfather and two uncles holding MD degrees and I found that Dr, Ying Zhao combines a profound knowledge of acupuncture with a gracious and caring manner that one seldom encounters in the hurly burly world of New York medical practioners. I highly recommend Dr. Ying Zhao. She is an extraordinary healer. Pros: Dr Ying Zhao with only two treatments relieved my swelling and pain more

It was a miracle! 10/15/2006

For a long time I was trying to get pregnant until I finally decided to visit a fertility specialist.I was diagnosed with ""hydrosalpinx"", and even with IVF, I only had 1% of the chance getting pregnant. Hydrosalpinx is a condition that blocks the philopian tubes with water and it makes it impossible to get pregnant without IVF. Pros: Professional, effective, relaxing more

Best Acupuncturist, She does her work with extreme care and patient 8/27/2006

I started seeking alternative treatment for my back pain I sustained from sports injury on June. I have tried physical therapy and chiropractor in the beginning and the effect was not minimal. However, it was acupuncture that really revived my back and put me back to cycling. I could feel the improvement after a few treatments and now I am free of pain. Dr. Ying is an experienced acupuncturist and does it with extreme care and patient. I will highly recommend Dr. Ying to anyone who suffers the same problem as me. Pros: convenient location, Ralexing, effective and she really cares about her patients more
