What my patients say...
It took a while to get there but I can’t imagine what it would have been like to try and have a baby without Margaret. I had about a million obstacles to overcome, and with her I was able to. Now, I’m planning a first birthday party for a round, soft, two-tooth wonder girl that I love more than anything. Thanks, Margaret.
Margaret has brought me great comfort and healing. First, she relieved a bad case of sciatica. After two treatments, I could feel the pain drain from my leg.
Following that success, she helped me make it through the first trimester of pregnancy — after six first-trimester miscarriages.
Acupuncture has made the difference.
Margaret is amazing, kind and expert in her field, along with being a delight to work with.
I will always be grateful to her for restoring my health, and I hope other women in my situation will be lucky enough to find her.
Thank you, Margaret!
I received acupuncture treatments from Margaret for six months while also undergoing two rounds of IVF. The acupuncture complemented the other regime very well: Margaret is a good listener, taking a comprehensive medical history before tailoring treatment to my specific needs. I never felt rushed during visits, and often became so relaxed that I dozed off. The process of IVF is very stressful both physically and psychologically. Margaret’s knowledge, warmth, and fine sense of humor strongly contributed a positive outcome: Our little daughter, Daphne, was born in April 2009.
I came to Margaret at the recommendation of a friend who suggested that she may be able to help me healthily conceive and carry a child after enduring two miscarriages. I’d had one successful and straightforward pregnancy, and the two miscarriages were both explained by western medicine as “bad luck.” Technically, there was nothing wrong and no medical treatment was necessary. At the same time, I felt depleted physically and emotionally, and I wanted to address both my overall well-being as well as to prepare my body to carry a second child to full term.
Margaret has thoughtfully and compassionately addressed my overall health with a specific focus on preparing my body to carry a child. She is an excellent listener who asks insightful questions in her diagnoses. In my case, she has connected a number of ailments and symptoms that had otherwise seemed random, and she has been able to address the underlying causes of my pregnancy losses and other related issues and symptoms, including general exhaustion and malaise.
Throughout my treatment over the past year, Margaret has patiently listened to my input, however inchoate at times, and she takes as much time as needed to answer my questions and respond with great answers and suggestions. She balances her clinical posture with warmth, discussing the widest range of issues, however delicate, with great respect for my curiosity and concern. She is incredibly invested in my well-being, which is reflected in her great memory detail, quick responses to my email questions, requests for updates between appointments, and flexiblity to make her schedule work to provide her best care.
I am still amazed at how much better I feel physically and emotionally through the combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and a revised vitamin regimen. My sleep, mood and energy have improved tremendously, and Margaret has kept a careful eye on my general well-being…as well as my pregnancy! I now joyfully and thankfully anticipate the birth of my second child in just a few weeks, with great gratitude to Margaret for her expert care to prepare for and to sustain this precious child inside.
I’ve been seeing Margaret now for almost 6 years, through my first child’s toddler-hood, the unexpected challenges of conceiving my second child and the subsequent post-partum depression I faced after her birth. I don’t know how I would have managed to get through all of this as well as I did without her. Her ability to listen compassionately and advise thoughtfully are truly unique qualities. Throughout these years I’ve had countless doctors visits and always marvel at how different and special my experience is in Margaret’s office. I know longer look for reasons to come see her; I see her now because I know how much better I’ll feel after our appointment.
