What Her Patients Say

"I am very lucky and grateful to have found Dr. Chen-Bristol. When I first saw her in 2006, I did not really believe in acupuncture and its healing power. However, after treatment, I found the effects of Dr. Chen-Bristol's treatment are immediate and last for as long as I keep a healthy lifestyle including a right diet. She is not only knowledgeable but also gifted in sharing her knowledge with patients. She offers great advice without any judgment on patients. In my opinion, she is a modern healer. I will continue to see her as it is truly beneficial to my healthy balance."

"It has been more than 11 years since I first sought out Dr. Chen-Bristol and received her treatment. I have been the beneficiary of her knowledge and skill ever since. It was clear to me from the beginning and continues to this day that her expertise in both Chinese medicine and modern medicine makes her a unique health professional. I believe my treatment with Dr. Chen-Bristol significantly enhanced my immune system and played a major role in my survival of prostate cancer. Her encouragement about right diet, regular exercise routine and stress reduction has helped my overall well-being. I also enjoy my time with Dr. Chen-Bristol because of her pearls of wisdom on both medical and non-medical subjects. It is a pleasure to give my testimonial."

"Twenty-one years ago, feeling stressed and run-down, I followed the advice of a friend to see Dr. Chen-Bristol. I had no idea what to expect. When I saw her I felt a sense of calm. I also found it comfortable and easy to discuss with her about my conditions due to her knowledge and training in both traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine. Over the years, she has gently and effectively treated my conditions including headaches, arthritis, a broken finger, and some digestive issues. I feel better physically and emotionally after her treatment, and continue to see her on an ongoing basis for maintaining my health. I have referred Dr. Chen-Bristol to my family members and friends. The feedback I received was always very positive. I highly recommend Dr. Chen-Bristol for her truly compassionate and remarkable treatment."

"When I first saw Dr. Chen-Bristol in 2006, I had an acute attack of bronchitis. She effectively treated me with the combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Because of my family history, I have also been suffering from severe allergic rhinitis ever since childhood. During outbreaks, my daily routines always get disrupted with tiredness. Due to Dr. Chen-Bristol's deep understanding of traditional Chinese medicine and accurate diagnosis, she successfully puts the condition well under control. I am now so much happier and healthier with increased flow of energy. Dr. Chen-Bristol genuinely cares for each patient. She has displayed a high level of expertise and professionalism. She is a strong advocate of holistic health and preventive medicine. I greatly appreciate her philosophy and practice as they have been proven successful in healing a variety of diseases and maintaining whatever health progress has been made."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Chen-Bristol for several years and consider myself extremely fortunate to have found her. When I first came to Dr. Chen-Bristol I was apprehensive about Chinese medicine approach. She immediately put me at ease with her knowledge, skill, expertise and compassion. Over the years, Dr. Chen-Bristol has treated me for depression, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, concentration difficulties, digestive issues and bunions. Conventional medicine offered me little relief, however, my acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine treatment have provided me with great relief. Thanks to Dr. Chen-Bristol, after her treatment I leave her office feeling completely relaxed with a better sense of mental, emotional, and physical well being. I am better equipped to handle the stresses and challenges of the week that lies ahead. Words cannot express how much I value my sessions with Dr. Chen-Bristol and I whole heartedly recommend her to everyone I know."

I have been a patient of Dr. Chen-Bristol for 20 years. I see her every two weeks for acupuncture, sometimes for a specific complaint and other times for whole body balance. I have found her treatments very effective for headaches, stiff neck and back pain. I always appreciate Dr. Chen-Bristol's balanced advice for the benefit of patients. Due to her background of both medicines, she may use traditional Chinese medicine treatment or recommend consultation with a Western physician. I see Dr. Chen-Bristol on a regular basis as a proactive approach to staying healthy. She is able to recognize warning signs early and correct them, which can prevent appearance of a possible condition or disease.
