I have known Dr. Choi for more than two years. He is knowledgeable about acupuncture technique and he is kind and understandable. As a medical doctor, I have little time for my self, but Dr. Choi always accommodates me, so I can obtain the full benefit of acupuncture as fast as possible. I have always been amazed how he can put patients with severe pack pains or other pains, at ease, in two or three sessions. Something that other pain management may take months or years of treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Choi to anyone that needs relief from pains or other ailments that acupuncture may alleviate.

Bipolar disorder is even difficult for psychiatrists to treat, but Dr.Choi helped me a lot to overcome. Niddle session and the herbal medicine was also good, but abdominal breathing was a tremendous help to me. Abdominal breathing controls emotion, and language habit controls thoughts.

I've been suffering from severe acne since teenage. I tried every skin doctors, ointment etc, but nothing really helped. I was lucky to have Dr.Choi's herbal treatment for two months and kin got so much better. So I highly recommend him for the skin problbems.
In combination with a special diet of low sodium, no high fructose corn syrup, no white flour, no red meat, and using the herbs provided by 123 Acupuncture & Herbs, I dropped body fat at an incredibly fast rate. Normally extreme weight loss (that is, exceeding 2 lbs/week) is primarily muscle loss, even with exercise. However, with the herbs provided I was dropping around 6 lbs a week during the first two weeks with minimal (less than 2lbs) muscle loss. I was losing a steady 1 lbs a day, which is remarkable. The best part is that the weight loss was mostly fat, rather than muscle.

Lyme Disease (Kari Haspel) 123 Acupuncture has been my savior. I have chronic Lyme Disease and was looking for an alternative way to treat this disease. After several years of medication and going from doctor to doctor, I wanted to try something different. During my consultation I felt very welcomed and decided to give this place a go. Jay Choi, the acupuncturist, is extremely personable and truly cares about his clients, which was surprisingly refreshing considering the other not so pleasant encounters I have had with other specialists. What I like most is that he explains what he’s doing and what happens to your nervous system so you have a better understanding. Since I’ve been going my overall well being has greatly improved, so much so that I had to write this review. I went from having chronic fatigue and severe joint pain, to the point of needing help to get out of bed, to having way more energy, almost no joint pain and now I’m back in the gym being as active as ever. I sincerely recommend going here, and to disagree with the other review from Peter, it’s actually less expensive compared to other places in the area.

Hi Dr. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time and energy to find the right formula for my healing. I am not a hypochondriac, I am under a lot of stress and it affects my body with all these ailments. I am happy that I found you. Thank you, Barbara

I was on vacation on 4th of July and realized the left side of my face had become Paralyzed. I was so upset and scared so I rushed to the ER and was told I had an ear infection that caused Bells Palsy in my face. I cut the vacation short and went home to go see a Neurologist Specialist, who told me the exact same thing as the ER. He let me know that I would not see any improvement for 4-6 weeks, this is a slow recovery and I needed to be patient! I was very embarrassed and upset by my appearance so I decided to go for Acupuncture to see if it would help shorten my recovery. I went to see Dr. Choi and explained my situation and he put my mind at ease that the Acupuncture was going to help. I went for treatments every other day, also Dr. Choi gave me Herbal Medicine to take 3 times a day, my face was completely normal in only 2 weeks. I recommend Dr. Choi and Acupuncture treatments for anyone with any kind of pain and especially for Bells Palsy. I was so devastated when this happened to me but I began to see improvement right away with my Acupuncture treatments that it instantly put my mind back at ease.

I have been seeing Dr. Choi for 5 or 6 years now, and he has helped me so much! I receive acupuncture to increase my Chi/Qi, and it is very effective. During the treatments, I feel so relaxed & energized at the same time. I can actually feel rushes of energy tingling throughout my body. The needles do not hurt, you can barely feel them, so don’t be afraid. In addition to increased life energy, Dr. Choi has helped me with other things as well, and he takes the time to make me homemade medicine a few times each year, to help with other ailments. Dr. Choi is the best! He really listens to you, takes his time, and remembers your story each time you return.
DR. Choi!! Thank you for your help. My back feels much better.
I started seeking acupuncture treatment with Dr. Choi over a year ago because I needed help in dealing with anxiety and stress. I am a firm believer in natural medicine and opted to try this prior to going to a traditional Western doctor who would more than likely prescribe medication. Prior to starting my acupuncture treatment, I was finishing up my final semester of graduate school, all while studying for my Series 7 Brokerage License. To put it lightly, I was a wreck, both mentally and physically. I had severe skin problems, suffered from stress, often felt tired, and had trouble sleeping. It seemed as if being so driven and goal oriented was really taking a toll on me. All in all, I knew I needed help. I originally started going to see Dr. Choi between two and three times a week, a minimum of 35 to 50 minutes per session, depending on how much time I had. Within a month I noticed drastic changes. For starters, my skin started clearing up, I no longer had trouble sleeping, and was able to concentrate better as I felt less stress. Over a year later, I still continue my acupuncture treatment between once and twice weekly. I am also able to effectively perform at a very stressful job on a securities trading desk / Front Office of a brokerage house. One of the longer term results of my treatment my ability to remain cool, calm and collective in even the most stressful of situations. I am also able to focus more effectively and am better equipped to deal with stress. I feel more energetic and am able to sleep better. Not to mention, my skin has completely cleared up. In short, I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who would rather remedy their ailment(s) naturally, as opposed to the Western belief of medicating themselves. Acupuncture is the best way to cure any ailment safe and naturally, as well as from the inside out. I am living proof, as I feel wonderful in comparison to how I felt over a year ago.

It’s been 4 years since I’m married, and 1year and 2months for planning pregnancy. I’ve done everything for past 1 year such as exercise, ovulation test and etc. I tried to eat anything that helps pregnancy like wild berries and pomegranates. However it didn’t work that well; at the same time my little sister visited from Korea who was suffered from migraine. She had to take migraine medicine and pills for a long time but it didn’t get better at all. We visited 123 Acupuncture & Herbs and I had a consultation for pregnancy and my little sister had a treatment for her migraine. Surprisingly, her migraine now is completely cured! Also I took herbal medicine (1-month supply) and I’m pregnant. I truly recommend 123 Acupuncture & Herbs.
