"As apprehensive as I was about acupuncture when my wife first told me, you certainly made a firm believer out of me. How can I not when you handily outperformed, without any medication, the best that a $6,000 emergency room visit could do. At its best, an ER visit would bring Bernadette down with a strong dose of Dilaudid I.V. from a pain level of nine (a ten is an indication of about to pass out of pain) to 5 or 6. The visit typically took several hours. From the same pain levels, you were able to bring her down to a three and a four. You have been able to bring down her pain levels with great consistency, where none of her abortive and prophylactic medication succeeded."

I would like to refer friends and family members to Gao Acupuncture."-Keith C. 09/18/2009
"I am very very satisfied with Dr Gao's services. She wholeheartedly believes in healing her patients. All methods used, including massage, were very healthful. I came to Gao Acupuncture for pain & swollen fingers on both hands. After visiting, most fingers have stopped hurting completely, however two seem like chronic conditions and may require more time. I would absolutely feel comfortable referring my friends or family to Gao Acupuncture." -Sam Pendar Aug. 2009
"I came here seeking care of my indigestion, constipation, frequent urination, and lack of energy. My constipation went away after only one acupuncture treatment! After several sessions, now I have been sleeping much better so I have more energy. The herbs I took also improve my digestion. Absolutely, I would refer my friends to Gao Acupuncture, and my family now are visiting Dr Gao too. I am very satisfied at Gao Acupuncture. Dr Gao always spends ample of time discussing my health condition and progress, and she's good in explaining to me what I can do for myself in order to improve my health." -Fung H., San Ramon, CA Jul. 2009
