From What Her Patients Say

"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 the Chinese medicine approach. She immediately put me at ease with her knowledge, skill, expertise and compassion...."                -- Andrea I.

"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...."                               -- Aissa A.

"Twenty-two 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....                                              --Anne G.

"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...."                        -- Ron J.
