Client Testimonials

Here's what our clients are saying


  • The administrativestaff were helpful. Provided a superbill since my insurance did not reimburse. I like that the center provides water or tea while you wait. One-2 blocks from the train station, great location.

    NEED TO HAVE A PRIVATE ROOM WHERE ONE CAN DISCUSS PRIVATE MATTERS- WALLS ARE NOT FLOOR TO CEILING HEIGHT- I VALUE MY PRIVACY

  • ..

    Amazing.

  • This place offers all the services you would want from a TCM/acupuncture clinic with an herb shop next door. While you are getting the acupuncture treatment, your dr. will go next door and have your herbs pulled for you and it's easy to pick them up after your appointment. Also, I like that this is reasonably priced and - the best part - they accept insurance (although mine denied it, it was great that they offer that option to try to bill it for you).

Portia Pettitt is an intuitive and dedicated acupuncturist. Informative but concise, she has the innate ability to relate to anyone regardless of social-economic and cultural backgrounds. I am continually amazed at her ability to zone on the needs of her diverse clientele . And she's lethal (in the gentlest way possible) with those needles...your ailments, pain and chronic illnesses have been warned!

Thank you for Portia that is helping me get better. I recommend Portia to anyone who wants to do acupuncture. This is my first time doing acupuncture and She is professional, friendly, understanding and caring. Thank you

I know Ms. Portia is busy, but the pain I feel in my body I don't know what I should do?

Dr. Long was very thorough and knowledgeable. Second week, post treatment. I'm feeling good. He prescribed Chinese medicine in the form of a herbal tea. NASTY, but it is working. I look forward to visiting Chicago again

would like a private rooms to discuss any medical conditions-do not want to hear conversations from other patients plus I am very private.[the walls in the rooms should be built from floor to ceiling not partial height but full height.That is my main concern.
