Thanks to the dedicated team of staff and specialists at Wall Street Pain Relief I am back on my feet and moving only 4 months after having surgery for an osteochondral lesion on my left knee! The staff is always superfriendly and help full with answering any questions I might have or with scheduling/rescheduling appointments for my physical therapy each week. Karen's acupuncture techniques not only helped my knee heal faster but also provided me with stress relief and a level of mental clarity I hadn't felt in ages. Wall street's team of physical therapists all contributed to my healing in unique ways through strength training exercises, electric muscle stimulation techniques and through use of their high tech gym which includes a zero gravity treadmill! Use of the treadmill allowed me to ease back into activity's like speed walking and eventually running as I healed. 7 months later I am happy to report that I am back with full range of motion and enjoying sports like kick ball and soccer. :) I would highly recommend the Wall Street pain relief team for all of your post surgery recovery needs.

I was referred to Karen Ortiz for acupuncture by the doctor. I have neck pain for over 6 years and had almost immediate relief after one session with Karen. She was very thorough in evaluating me and explaining the benefits ofacupuncture as well as a treatment plan. The office is conveniently located in the financial district and I am able to get appointments after work. Thank you!

I came to Karen to help get some relief from lower back pain, but wasn't sure if acupuncture would help as I hadn't tried it before. Karen was very professional and super friendly, knew exactly what she was doing and itwas obvious she was very experienced in her field. The 2 sessions I had definitely helped me to get relief from the pain and relax my back muscles and I would without doubt come back again to be treated again. I highly recommend Karen

I was a little nervous my first time about getting cupping done because I had no idea what to expect. Dr. Karen Ortiz was super friendly and answered all my questions about the process and what to expect. It’s one ofthose really pleasant, stress-relieving therapies that I looked forward to. The hot stones were the best, it relaxed me and helped so much with pain. I love the ambiance of the office, the place is so modern and clean. Front Desk is so polite and informative. Highly Recommend

The experience with Karen at Wall Street Pain Relief was amazing from start to finish. The office is so modern and clean and I was greeted from the moment I stepped into the office. Everyone was so kind and truly mademe feel like I was at home. Karen was a great listener and you can tell she genuinely cares about her patients and the reasons that they are coming in. She implemented hot stones and cupping during my treatment which truly was the icing on top of the cake ! I absolutely recommend Acupuncture with Karen, I will definitely be coming back for additional treatments = )

This was my first time getting acupuncture. Karen was extremely professional and thorough in taking my (very complex) medical history. She took her time and explained everything I’d feel with the needles. She was very gentle and yet efficientin her treatment. My neck pain has MUCH improved in only one session! Oh, and she relaxed me so much that I got the best nap I’ve had in years!
