Verified Patient Reviews
Enter only if you are Chinese. Huang depended on her team almost exclusively - the technician was extremely unprofessional and rude. VERY little communication unless forced. Don't bother.
She was thorough and kind. She explained everything and listened carefully to me. I felt respected.
Amazing electrical massage therapy!
Today was the first treatment for neck and shoulder pain. It was an electrical massage. It was amazing I fell to sleep! Cant wait to go back!
Very cute little office. She seemed very concerned and listened to everything I had to say. Gave me her recommendations and I agreed, will be attending my follow up appointments. Highly recommend!
The doctor was very warm, professional, and thorough. She took the time to actually put my body through movements to get to the root of the issue.
Doctor is kind, patient, very informative.
She was patient and kind. Thorough in the examination and answered all my questions and concerns.
Always responsive and helpful.
Wonderful Dr. Very knowledgeable and insightful.
Zocdoc has my insurance information, and it was provided the office when I booked the appointment. Nothing was said when they call to confirm the appointment.. Don't have me come all the way from Staten Island to Chinatown knowing that my insurance actually did not cover acupuncture. While I place a little bit of the blame on ZocDoc for this comma for listing this as a covered service. I placed most of the blame on the doctor's office. At any point they could have called me and allowed it to be my decision. But, no. Instead, they had me come all the way there, and called it a consultation so they could bill my insurance. Basically it was a sales pitch for me to pay cash for the acupuncture. At an exorbitant rate in 10 visit blocks. I am on a fixed income awaiting disability, that is so outside the realm of possibility it's comical. Why couldn't they just communicate this before I hiked all the way there in pain? They couldn't even refill my medication. Another office where it's all about swipe swipe swipe, bill that insurance, not about patient care.
Although I had to wait, the doctor listens to you with patients, did not rush to any conclusion, took time for consultation. After the exam, she explained to me what needs to be done from here on. Highly recommended.
Had difficulty understanding this doctor. I went for two weeks of treatment as recommended by her, at her office. While she was nice, the treatment was a waste - they did not help at all. I went to another doctor for a second opinion who was able to clearly articulate my condition and what it meant. Further, the other doctor recommended PT treatment at other facilities that have been able to meaningfully improve my condition.
Wonderful doctor. Very attentive, thorough and knowledgeable. She listens and answers questions. Her assistant, acupuncturist, is great. The office is clean. Receptionists are pleasant. I definitely plan to be there often.
Explained very well and understand patient
I just had my first appointment and was really pleasantly surprised by how thorough Dr. Huang was. She really took the time to listen to all of my concerns and sort through all components of my lifestyle to figure how I can maximize my health. She's very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. After an in-depth consultation, she did a physical evaluation and recommended multiple exercises and stretches for me to implement into my daily routine. After that, I was taken into another room for a 30-minute acupuncture session, where another practitioner administered the needles under Dr. Huang's supervision. After that, a 10-minute session of warm towels placed over the acupuncture areas were the cherry on top of a great experience. I'm looking forward to my second session next week.
I went to this doctor with the hope of being prescribed an MRI due to chronic back pain. Because my pain wasn't severe enough she said it was her opinion I didn't need one. I explained to her that because I'm an athlete, I move better than the average person, but that doesn't mean my pain isn't abnormal and shouldn't be addressed. She completely invalidated my concerns and would not give me a referral. From her comments she clearly doesn't even lift weights herself. How can you assess someone's level of spinal dysfunction without personal experience? She was also wearing pointed shoes which will cause her to develop bunions someday....which makes me question her overall intelligence as a doctor.
Very helpful Took her time Professional
I was immediately impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the front desk staff. I was called in without any waiting, and Dr. Huang listened calmly and carefully as I answered her questions about the reason for my visit. She proceeded to skillfully do an exam and explain what the next steps would be. I felt in very good hands.
Dr. Josephine Huang and her staff are absolutely wonderful. I had a problem raising my right arm with very limited activities within a week doing the acupuncture therapy I can lift my and have full function of my arm again. Thank you all!
Dr Huang and her team remain superlatives in my book. Best acupuncture care in NYC!
She was excellent in every way. Highly recommended
The doctor was very knowledgeable, professional and personable.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.
I came here for acupuncture treatment of chronic neck and upper back pain. I came for 4 visits over the course of two weeks. I've had extensive acupuncture done at three different practitioners over the last 4 years, always with great results, but this place was just meh. The placement of the needles by the acupuncturist was very generic and shallow. I never received the tension relief or healing benefits I usually feel after a single sessions, even after going twice weekly for two weeks. I've since taken my money and muscle tension elsewhere, to much better result.
A little stiff at first but warmed up quickly. Looking forward to working with her and her team.
Dr. Huang is very professional and knowledgeable, as is everyone in her office.
She and her other Doctor were great and informative however I would have preferred to be told after I paid my co pay if I was going to accept treatment that there was a separate fee and that it was not covered I unfortunately can not afford the treatment beyond this for now
great first time visit, will be back!
I really enjoyed speaking with Dr. Huang, and I she provided me very helpful information. I was there for about 10 sessions, which helped me a lot, but I got to be honest, that her recommendation of to change some of my lifestyle in order to defeat the pain were just as helpful as the treatment itself. Thank you, Dr. Huang!
Dr Huang was informative and helpful, she seems to have a persepective informed by training in multiple modalities.
Very good. She pinpointed the problem and I received excellent treatment for my pain.
Dr. Huang was very thorough and kind. She elicited a detailed history from me, took her time, and had much more of a holistic approach to treatment than I am used to getting from other healthcare providers. I am very happy with the services I received from Dr. Huang and her office. I intent to recommend her to everyone I know who is looking for a physiatrist.
Dr Huang speaks excellent Mandarin. She is very kind and professional. The communication is smooth. I would recommend her to my friends.
DR, Huang was competent, broadly skilled and pleasant to speak with.
She is a real professional,attentive, andforthcomong. It was a pleasure.
Amazing. I came in unable to sit or climb stairs and barely able to walk because of hip pain and within 2 visits the pain was almost gone. I was first seen by Dr. Huang, who took her time asking questions, figuring out what was wrong, and explaining everything. Everyone at the office was professional and kind. Dr. Huang gave me exercises and then worked with Dr. Shih to develop a treatment plan. Dr. Shih, the licensed acupuncturist, treated me. She was very gentle, listened, and explained everything. Most of all, her treatments were incredibly effective. Would highly recommend to anyone with chronic or acute pain!
My visit was very thorough, Dr. Huang asked many questions and figured out a course of action for me on my first visit.
I found she asked me the right questions, she is a great listener and provided me with a plan to help me. Her staff was warm, friendly and professional.
Really thorough, really nice temperament.
She was quick and patient, and gave general advice for things I could do on my own as well as setting up a treatment plan.
Great doctor, very friendly and knowledgable. I would highly recommend Dr. Huang.
For the first time I felt pain during the acupuncture session. Never happened before. Doctor also has very cold personality
She was very methodological and thorough in figuring out what was going on with my body. She's friendly and patient, looking forward to more meetings with her.
She's great. She helped me with my elbow.
Dr. Huang was really great with me and took time to make me feel comfortable and access what was hotly hearing me. She did not perform the actual acupuncture, but she was there for the needle process reassuring me that if anything felt uncomfortable I should say so and that she was there to make sure I was okay. She's is certainly someone I would recommend.
Very knowledgable, helpful, and most of all super nice! The
It was a very different acupuncture experience from what I am used to, but I appreciated the difference and look forward to seeing how my body reacts to the next couple sessions!
I went to Dr. Huang seeking acupuncture for hip pain. The office staff were friendly. She was kind and thorough in doing a western medicine diagnosis. Then she told me if I wanted acupuncture that I would have to come back and see a different person. I was under the assumption from her bio that she was an acupuncturist and offered that service. I like to do research on the medical professionals that I use but Dr Huang said she didn't have a card for the acupuncturist and refused to write down the name of the person who does acupuncture out of her office. I'm not sure what was going on but didn't feel comfortable pursuing treatment here.
Very profressional, knows her stuff. I appreciate her ability to combine Western and Chinese medicine. Friendly front desk staff. I'm a fan.
Dr. Huang was very knowledgable and offered useful advice in conjunction to the previous doctors I have been to. She took the time to fully understand my situation. After voicing all my concerns about different treatments, she managed to make me feel at ease regarding the reality for certain treatments. They also made my first acupuncture experience very comfortable and relaxing.
Dr. Huang was very knowledgeable and thorough in her examination. She really took time to talk to me and understand what was going on not only in my body but in my life.
Great visit! Dr. Huang was very patient in addressing issues with my sprained index finger and wrist (due to a cycling accident) and gave me treatment and suggestions to promote healing and strength. I will be back for follow-up visits.
the doctor was very understanding and knowledgable, and the personal were one nicer than the other
Dr Huang spent close to an hour to learn/talk about my health issue and came up with a treatment plan for me. She was very detail and caring. Highly recommended.
Very thorough! Dr. Huang was so direct, but very kind. I look forward to our next sessions and this pain to end!
She is sooo thorough and really listens to everything!!
very nice clean office. Nice staff and Dr Huang took the time and care that I expected.
The office staff is wonderful and Dr. Huang took time to understand my issue. She thoroughly checked me out and gave me recommendations on the spot to alleviate my pain. I have been dealing with chronic back pain for 8 years and after one visit I have felt results. I will be going back to continue to heal but I would recommend Dr. Huang to anyone.
Really liked her approach and that she looks at a course of treatment that makes sense, office is clean and friendly and a great location for me.
The Dr. asked me a lot of questions and really listened to my answers and concerns. She gave me advice to follow and explained the process of acupuncture to me. She and all her staff were friendly, courteous, and informative. The office is very clean. It was easy to schedule my follow up appointments as well.
Very impressed. Walked in with severe back spasms, Dr. Huang was able to diagnose a shoulder injury and had acupuncture performed on me, which stopped the spasms. Also gave me detailed information on proper posture. Will returning for follow up care.
The Dr had a great bedside manner and really listened to my history and took the time to examine my injury and educate me about the next steps. I felt very happy that I had picked her as my Dr and would recommend her to my friends.
Took plenty of time to find out reasons for pain. Very caring and thoughtful.
warm, open, kind, and professional. Answered questions, and the whole office had a familial feel to it. i am looking forward to receiving acupuncture from her!
Lovely visit, as always. Staff is friendly and polite, and my visits are always quick and pleasant.
I am excited for my follow up, and to see how treatment affects my overall well-being. I felt well taken care of, listened to, and hopeful about my outcomes.
Dr Huang was professional, thorough and very nice. She is respectful and knowledgable. After the treatment I felt relaxed. Looking forward for my next treatment!
She was very thorough in her examination, and treated me with a great deal of respect. She told me what she thought was wrong then offered options in the type of treatment, telling me pros/cons and also which my insurance would be more likely to cover. I thought she was great!
Highly recommend! Dr. Huang and her staff are always very kind and courteous, and I never have to wait more than five minutes. I've been seeing her for almost a year now and plan to continue going.
Dr. Huang made sure to understand the complete medical history of my wife. She recommended acupuncture. The Acupuncture was done following the consultation and was done by a professional Acupuncturist.
I saw Dr. Huang for the consultation and have seen Dr. Shih for the acupuncture treatments. Everyone in the office is very kind, both doctors have great bedside manners. The office is very clean. My only complaint is that the process was explained very well when we first started. Now that I've been there a few times, I know the procedure and it's very relaxing. I feel much better after 3 sessions and would highly recommend.
She is very attentive and takes a serious approach to helping her patients.
Very nice doctor and staff.
I had to choose the appointment at the end of the day due to my work. They emailed me and we worked out some of the paperwork details before my arrival. Dr. Huang and Dr. Shu were very pleasant and informative.
Dr. Huang is very warm and approachable. She definitely speaks the language of Western Medicine and I would say this is a less holistic and more targeted treatment style. She asked me thoroughly about my neck problems and neck / shoulder / joint pain. I told her I had been to acupuncture many times before so rather than explaining the treatment, she focused on making suggestions for better posture and gentle stretches that I can do. I had never experienced pulse stimulation as part of acupuncture treatment, and there was some discomfort with this - also the heating pads placed after treatment made me very sweaty, so don't go right before a date! But I do think those two elements made the effects of the treatment stronger - the next day my pain (which had been incessant for 1 week) was completely gone. Definitely going back!
GREAT DOCTOR. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!
I thought it was a good experience but I really just wish she had explained more about acupuncture, the procedure I could expect and what it involved step by step. I know it involves pressure points and needles but would have been nice to know how long they'd be in and what each point is, etc. It was relaxing otherwise.
Josephine Huang was great. Explain what was going on with me in very good details. She even gave me some sheets explain how I can fix my problem. I would definitely recommend and one to her. Her staff was also great and very friendly.
Very soothing. First time getting acupuncture treatment and Dr Huang made me feel at ease. I was skeptical at first but would def go back for a swcond treatment and will recommend my mom to try her
Dr. Huang is very professional and takes her time with you during the procedure. Everyone in the office was friendly and the entire experience is wonderful.
Unsure about the effectiveness of treatment after several weeks of acupuncture, sometimes you see Dr. Huang and sometimes Dr. Shih. Both are very nice but I wish I got to talk more about the treatment, felt a little in the dark though I mostly enjoyed the sessions.
Very knowledgeable, we even did acupuncture!
Dr. Huang is excellent, understanding and clear about her action plan. She was not present during subsequent appointments, however, when a member of her team administered physical therapy. Due to a language barrier, I wasn't able to ask questions about certain portions of the massage that left me feeling uncomfortable, so unfortunately I will not return.
Wonderful MD. Very knowledgeable and very pleasant bedside manner.
Dr. Huang was great. She was through and efficient in her assessment, and offered clear recommendations on nutrition and exercise. I will definitely see her again.
Exemplary office, great staff, excellent care.
Dr Huang is very attentive and practical. Office and staff are great.
Dr. Huang and her team were knowledgable, friendly, and worked immediately to find a treatment for my injury. I was ver pleased with the service and care.
Best acupuncture experience I have had in NYC. Great staff, great office, great care.
Absolutely concerned and passionate about her profession. I would recommend in a minute!
She was great! I really enjoyed the talk I had with her and hopefully everything works!
Dr. Huang is a great doctor that I will continue to see. She saw me very quickly, gave very good feedback on my finger/hand. I would highly recommend Dr. Huang to anyone who want's a quick, informative and productive experience. 5 star!!
Very professional and a great listener
Doctor was great. She emphasized the importance of strength training and rest in conjunction with the acupuncture. I could really feel the difference from the acupuncture treatment (my first time).
I was very satisfied. She listened to me well, and answered all questions I had. At the first visit, I was able to get acupuncture treatment for my back pain, and it worked very well. The acupuncture treatment was provided by her colleague, Dr. Shih, and she was also very friendly and careful in giving me the treatment. The wait time was not short, but I left her office, being very satisfied.
This visit was very positive. Dr. Huang took the time to really examine my shoulder, ask me all sorta of questions, let me ask questions, and didn't rush even though I was her last patient of the day. After one treatment of acupunture, my shoulder is actually feeling better. The wait time was a bit long but worth it once I got back and seen.
Dr. Huang was great. I was able to get an appointment same day for a back issue which she diagnosed and treated quickly. She was professional and pleasant. The staff was helpful, and the office seemed well maintained. I would absolutely recommend seeing her if you interested in trying acupuncture.
Dr. Huang is excellent. I really mean that in a true sense of the word. She's approached helping me with my muscular issues in a holistic way and, recognizing that she can't be present to fix my bad choices at all times, provides practical ways to integrate better flexibility and lifestyle choices. In addition, her's is the best acupuncture experience I've had in the city. The team is great there. I'm not going there for a spa treatment, but for great acupuncture and a chance to relax. They excel on both those axes.
Dr. Huang was very warm and thorough in her questioning about the chest pain I have been experiencing. She addressed not only that pain but gave me recommendations to improve my general well-being (reducing fatigue, regulating low blood pressure). The acupuncture treatment (my first ever) was painless and very relaxing; the colleague of Dr. Huang who performed it was very communicative about when I might expect unusual sensations, which put me at ease. I look forward to returning for a follow-up acupuncture treatment.
She was amazing!
Says she treats anxiety, but she really doesn't.
It was wonderful, Dr. Huang really cares about her patients and the entire staff is friendly. They know how to treat their patients well and go above and beyond their needs.
Pleasantly surprised. I have another appointment coming up and I'm looking forward to it.
she was professional, asked all the right questions, very caring doctor. I liked her very much. Highly recommend this Doctor
Great! Hard to find such nice doctor in NYC!
Great experience--Dr Huang talked to me for 10 min before the procedure and showed me the best moves to do for my injured lower back. The acupuncture was soothing & relaxing, my back felt better almost immediately. When I left, she gave me a sheet of exercises to do to continue to feel better. Clean office, professional & friendly bedside manner!
Awesome! Everything you would want in a doctors visit, attentive , thoughtful and thorough
Fascinating experience. First time getting acupuncture and electrical stimulation. Bed side manner was excellent, explained her diagnosis and thoughts very clearly.
In and out with good staff. Straight to the point with diagnosis. A+
Her treatment was amazing. After the acupuncture appt I felt like a refreshed person. Would definitely go back to her office and recommend her as well.
Wonderful experience - everyone in the office was very friendly!
Professional, very kind, calm. She's great! Seems very knowledgeable about her field!
I finally feel like I'm getting help for the first time in months. I'm so grateful for Dr. Huang and her team.
It's good that wait time is short but overall I wasn't all that satisfied with patient service. I don't feel I received proper treatment for my pain nor did I get enough explanation for what's going on with my body or diagnosis.
She is awesome! Very thorough and extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
I thought she was very nice, but I didn't feel like I got any real treatment advice.
She genuinely cares about her patients.
Dr. Huang was nice but I wish that some of the other staff members were better at customer/patient service. I only got initial consultation and didn't get treated by her.
Thoughtful discussion of the symptoms. Asked good questions to determine root cause. Very friendly staff
Great listener - was able to signficantly reduce the amount of pain I was experiencing, which was the whole reason I went. That alone says everything - results!
Dr. Huang is wonderful as is her office staff. She saw me right away & has a lovely bedside manner. She diagnosed my problem and set a treatment plan that was effective. She made going to the doctor enjoyable.
Very nice, professional and warm, Thank you Dr. Huang
she was very respectful and genuine on helping me with my problem. she explained clearly what specific parts of my problem area where affected and described ways to improve this area so I could make a safe and speedy recovery. The other physicians went above and beyond my standards as well.
Very thorough. She found an issue that my specialist could not identify. She seems to genuinely care about her patients and her work.
Dr. Huang was very thorough and took her time asking questions and assessing my condition. I will definitely be attached.
She was very thorough and kind when asking me about my medical history. She was honest, listened intently, and offered a broad range of treatment options. Great doctor, highly recommend!
I feel she was knowledgeable and look forward to working with her.
She took the time to meet with me first, and gave me some practical stretching and posture exercises. I did not get "treated" by her for acupuncture so I can't rate that service. I may in the future.
