Dear Dr. Lau,
This is a letter of gratitude. After more than four years of severely debilitating pain, I am nearly pain-free. I have you to thank for this. Indeed, you have given me my life back -- as well as much hope for the future.
My pain was of an especially distressing kind. I had severe vaginal pain and pain from interstitial cystitis. The pain was so intense that I had withdrawn from my life. Before coming to you I tried everything to find a cure. I went to countless MDs, I consulted with naturopaths and with homeopaths. I kept to a very strict diet of fish and vegetables. But nothing seemed to help consistently or for long. I was in great despair.
Then I came to you. And within only a few sessions the pain decreased significantly, then nearly vanished. The IC (interstitial cystitis) symptoms have disappeared entirely. The vaginal pain is 85-90% gone. You treated me with both acupucture and herbs, and the combination has been wonderful.
I must add another note. You have treated me with great kindness and respect. The difficulty of working with pain of such an intimate nature did not deter you, and you have always made me feel great trust in you as a doctor. I know that you care sincerely about my health -- physical and emotional -- and you have been enormously generous with your knowledge, your time, and your kindness.
With much gratitude,
Dr. M. Werner

Dear Dr. Lau,
I am writing this letter to tell you how pleased I am with the very good treatments that I received from you for my neck ailment.
Prior to my visits with you, I had considerable pain in my neck and would cause pain by simply moving or bending it.
Your treatments have helped me a great deal and I am now able to move my neck rather freely without pain.
You were always kind and attentive to my medical needs and certainly enjoyed our talks.
Your staff was very courteous each time I visited your office and greeted by name. Since my visits were in the morning, I got to know Grace, who was extremely kind and courteous.
Thank you for your kind attention and I will be happy to recommend you to any friend who feels the need for acupuncture treatment.

I just wanted to send you this note of thanks for having helped me with both my stress levels and sleeping problems which I have had for the past 4 years. As a business owner, husband, father of two daughters (one is a type 1 diabetic), not to mention I have a father who has Parkinson’s disease, you could say my stress level is considerable.
I had problems both falling asleep and staying asleep. I had tried both natural and prescription sleeping pills with limited success. Oh, sure they would work for about a week and then back to the same old routine of maybe getting 2-3 hours of sleep a night. I was getting very frustrated and could hardly stay awake while driving, which was starting to scare me. Imagine if I had fallen asleep at the wheel, gotten into an accident and something happened to me. What would become of my family? What if I seriously injured someone else? This, I could not live with, so after reading some news articles about how acupuncture could help with stress and sleeping problems, I decided to give it a try.
I pass your office daily and decided to give you a call. The phone was answered by your office staff, and they gladly answered a few questions I had, so I made an appointment. After arriving for my consultation and meeting with you, I was told that you could help me but, it would take more than one treatment. This was understandable, and I tried what you suggested and started off with 4 treatments and some herbs, which you, also, suggested. I was amazed. After the first treatment, I went home that night and went about my daily routine. Well, I started to get tired by 11:00 PM. This has not happened to me in such a long time. After going to bed, I slept until about 5:30 AM. I could not believe it; I had slept for over 6 hours. I had not only slept for such a long period of time, but I, also, felt rested for the first time in a long while. After a few more sessions, sleep had returned to me on a regular basis, and my stress level is nowhere near what is has been in the past.
I had, also, expressed to you that I have a problem with sinusitis. You, then, proceeded to treat this. Well, all I can say is thank you. You have done what my regular doctor could not do with all the prescriptions he has given me. Sure, they would work for a few months, but then, the sinusitis would hit me again. Even after all the prescription medication I took, I still had one major problem. My left sinus would never open up, but after ten minutes of the first treatment, it opened right up and has been clear for over a month now.
I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate every thing you have done for me. You have a new patient for life in me, and I would not hesitate to ask you for help in the future.
