Muscle & Skeletal -- Testimonials*

Four years ago I hurt my back (bulging disc-sciatic nerve) at work, went to workman’s comp doctor, they had me do 3 months of physical therapy. When I didn’t get better their solution was surgery, retirement and pain pills for the rest of my life.Went to Dr. Gao and he examined me and said I would need 10 sessions of acupuncture, massage and herbs. After two sessions the pain went away but I finished all 10 sessions. The pain has never came back.

  •  P.W. (age 77) - chronic gastritis

I came to Mr Gao for treatment of chronic pancreatitis which I had been suffering four year and a half. My traditional western doctors told me there was no cure and "pain management" was my only course of action. After my very first acupuncture treatment, I was pain free and no longer needed morphine twice a day. I stopped losing and started gaining weight during Mr Gao's course of treatments. He turned my life around. My gastroenterologist specialist was completely dumbfounded that my lipase level returned to normal (he said it never would or could.) Mr Gao's herbal remedies have replaced the pharmaceutical digestive aids that did not work very well. I now can eat, sleep, and live a normal, healthy life thanks to Mr Gao's knowledge of herbal remedies and acupuncture. I hightly recommend Mr Gao's course of treatment to anyone suffering and receiving inadequate health care from conventional western medicine. He works miracles.

  •  M.F. - long time cystic acne sufferer

  •  V.S. - Allergic Contact Dermatitis

My husband went to Mr Gao to be treated for an encapsulated sebaceous cyst on this buttock. He had treated me previously for neck, back, and knee pain with very good success.

My husband did not want to go into a hospital, wanted this minor surgery to be done in the M.D.'s office. However, with visits to three different surgeons, two said it could be cancer and one saying it could be leaking spinal fluid. Being a surgery registered nurse for many years, I knew without a doubt it was a sebaceous cyst and told them so. I thought to myself "Don't they teach M.D.s when in medical school to think of the obvious rather than the extreme." My husband had a MRI and it indeed showed it was what I said it was, AN ENCAPSULATED CYST. For the three M.D.'s with their pearls of wisdom we had bills ranging from $400 - $600 each. I had it with traditional medicine!!

That's when we thought of an alternative treatment with Mr Gao. With acupuncture, deep heat, herbs, and salves, he was able to liquefy the contents of the cyst so it can be evacuated through the skin surface. Mr Gao is a very knowledgeable, honest, caring professional. His main concern is to make you well.

  •  Pat L. - wife of patient with encapsulated sebaceous cyst
