"I first met Dr. Liaw when I was referred to him to help with arthritis in my wrist. Little did I know how much more he could help me. The pain in my wrist dramatically decreased and when I mentioned to him that we were trying to become pregnant for several months, he added in acupuncture for that as well. I knew that day it had done something, but in a couple weeks we learned that we were expecting! We are so thankful to Dr. Liaw. He is not only skilled and continues to be up to date with the latest research, but also is a doctor who cares and listens to how he can support your whole body health."   - Jenn
