I have received a relatively long term of acupuncture treatment in Dr. Li's office. The treatment covers the periods of pre-IVF, IVF and early stage of pregnancy. Based on my own research and my own experience, acupuncture treatment does help prepare my body ready for the IVF and also ready for the pregnancy. I feel extremely lucky to have Dr. Hui Li with me to go through this long and stressful procedure. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. Her acupuncture skill is fantastic. To tell you the truth, I started the treatment with fear and ended up with enjoying every 30 min. treatment. It is so relaxing and soothing. And the best thing is I delivered a healthy baby girl of 9 lbs. 8 oz..
My friend refered me to Dr. Li due to miscarriage, infertility issues and uterine fibroids. I have been seeing her every week for almost 10 months. She is knowledgeable and professional. No doubt she has a busy schedule; however, she spends time to answer your question and assists with any concern. The acupuncture and herbal pills are working for me that I don't even mind to driving an hour to see her. I was pregnant again after seeing her and have a beautiful baby now. I am very pleased with Dr. Li's service and would recommend.
