Age 23 – Complex Regional Pain Syndrome/Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy

A year ago, I had incurred some trauma on my knee that left me in almost constant, excruciating pain. I was going through pain management whilst taking and trying a multitude of nerve pain medications prescribed to me by my doctor, gaining no relief. I never received a definite diagnosis except that my pain was closely linked to CRPS/RSD. After 8 months of this route, I progressively got worse. I was 22 years old and forced to utilize a cane to walk, and was only able to walk or stand for no more than about 10 to 15 minutes at a time, due to severe pain. I was referred to acupuncture by my doctor and was initially hesitant about whether it would actually help my pain. 6 months later, and I am now able to exercise and do light hiking! My mobility is so much better and my pain is virtually gone! Ed has been the sole reason for my amazing recovery and I couldn’t be more grateful for how he has given me back my quality of life! Ed went above and beyond by going through my medical history and following up with me regularly through texts to see how my pain was. When I began acupuncture 6 months ago, I was having sessions about 4-5 times a week, and I am now down to once a week. The acupuncture, along with Ed’s herbal recommendations and diet changes have not only taken away my pain, but have also helped improve the overall health of my body! Ed sincerely cares about all of his patients and is amazing at what he does. I cannot thank him enough for all that he has done to help heal me! He will surely do the same for you!

Sweet relief! This was my first experience with acupuncture. Recent lower back sprain had me in pain for almost two weeks. I tried pain medicine and salonpas - nothing seemed to work. Until today when we met Ed! There was a little mix up with our insurance but thankfully it was all figured out (we have Anthem) and I was able to be treated. I didn't feel any needle pricks except for one and it wasn't super painful. Ed was so informative and helpful. He took his time and explained what was going on with my back. Interestingly enough, the pain wasn't coming from my lower back but the muscles on my right side. He illustrated that by showing how I was flexible on my left but not right side. A couple needle pricks later and I was able to move my right leg further than before. Fascinating! Normally by this time my back is feeling terrible but it's feeling 75% better! Great for just one visit. The office itself is clean and the staff is very kind! Can't wait to go back.

I have been seeing Mr. Edward Choi for a few months now and can say he is very good at what he does.

I have been diagnosed with torn meniscus in both knees, carpal tunnel in my hands and wrists, cubital tunnel syndrome in both elbows and constant sharp pain in both my lower back and neck. To make matters worse, all these problems have caused havoc in my marital relationship as well. Needless to say, I am pretty torn up.

I have seen an acupuncturist before and loved my last doctor; however, Ed took my expectations to a whole new level. My previous treatments were enough to maintain me and help me function for a period. Ed treatments are a bit more aggressive by interacting more with the muscles and nerves responsible for the pain. There have been a few days where I have walked in with neck and shoulder muscles of steel and screaming in pain. Within a short hour, I left with relaxed muscles and virtually no pain. While I am not saying he can cure all of my ailments, I can say that he makes them not only tolerable, but functional, as well. My wife has also noticed a distinct change in my behavior and ability to function as her husband since receiving treatment with Ed.

Ed has genuine concern for my well-being and has a phenomenal bed side manner. He is a very caring and kind man.

I am grateful for Mr. Edward Choi.

Age 53 – Chronic back and knee pain, overweight

My experience with Mr. Edward Choi has been nothing short of life changing. This was my first experience with acupuncture. With my chronic back pain and weight struggles, I had reached my wits end. He has not only treated my pain, but changed my approach to living as well. As a result, I have lost weight, resumed a cycling regiment and had a marked reduction of pain. One of the key things that makes Ed a great practitioner is he spends quality time with his patients getting to know them. This allows him to develop a plan designed to treat them as a “whole person.” Mr. Choi has always treated me with kindness, compassion and respect. I consider him a personal friend and wish him great success in all his future endeavors.
