“I cannot say enough good things about working with Dr. Mel. She is something of a miracle worker! When in her presence, I always find myself enormously relaxed, soothed, and reassured. Dr. Mel is incredibly knowledgeable, gifted, competent, kind, intelligent and comforting as a practitioner and as a person. I had suffered a miscarriage in the Summer of 2014 and, when my husband and I were ready to try again in the Fall of 2014, we tried for a few months with no success. I then decided to work with Dr. Mel to assist with fertility and conception. Exactly two months after I began to receive acupuncture treatment in combination with taking Chinese herbs, which were prescribed for me by Dr. Mel, I was pregnant. I would jokingly thank Dr. Mel for getting me pregnant, to which she would jokingly reply that my husband had something to do with it, too. Now, as I sit and write this today, my beautiful 4 month old baby is napping just a few feet away from me."
