Dear Dr. Pham
would like to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude for helping me to recover from severe sciatica. I suffered for two months from incessant pain radiating from my back, into my left hip joint and all the way down to my big toe, sleeplessness and deterioration of general health. With other medications not helping at all or actually having adverse reactions, I was truly amazed that after just three treatments I could put pressure on my foot for the first time in almost two months. I am convinced that because of the severity of my condition and the long duration without proper treatment that I required many more treatments than someone who would come to you in the early stages of their condition. I am quite thankful that I was able to return to full-time employment without any restrictions after approximately seven weeks of treatment. I know that if I had undergone surgery in my deteriorated condition, my recovery time would have been quite prolonged not to mention the possible risks of side effects from surgery.
Again, thank you, and I hope that others will realize that acupuncture in most cases is a far better option without any side effects whatsoever than undergoing surgery with its potential for life-long side effects.
At this time I would like to take the opportunity to thank Dr. Pham for healing a severe case of hives that I had to endure for eight months before seeking his help. The hives started on February 5 th 1987 and were so severe that I had to go the Emergency Ward at the San Jose Hospital for help to ease the pain and swelling. The welts from the hives continued to cover my body even after applications of medicines prescribed by my doctor. After having several blood tests he diagnosed the cause as stress.
After four visits to the Emergency Ward, many visits to my doctor I decided to try a Chiropractor. He gave me two treatments that did not give me any relief and the hives continued to cover my body. Upon his recommendation I went to see a dermatologist. Again I had more blood tests taken and more prescriptions for tranquilizers. All to no avail for the hives continued to cover my body.
Finally I decided to try Acupuncture. I looked up the phone book and found Dr. Pham.
At long last I received help and was eventually cured after three months of treatments and herbal therapy that the doctor provided. If only I had known how effective Acupuncture was I would have saved myself from pain, misery, sleepless nights and money. Not only did Dr. Pham have the knowledge and the ability to cure me but he also was compassionate and sympathetic to my problems.
