My problem with my sacroiliac joint which was diagnosed in Germany in late October 2014. The pain was so severe that it radiated down my legs. I received treatment in Germany however, it only solved the problem temporarily.
In mid-February 2015, I arrived at Miami International Airport from Germany and was happy to be met by a friendly airport assistant with a wheelchair. The wheelchair was necessary because I could not walk without crutches nor stand for more than two minutes without pain.
While in Miami an internet search led me to Dr. Steven Chasens and his team in Coral Gables. Within about two and a half weeks, unfortunately I did not have more time as I had to go back to Germany, Dr. Chasens gave me 10 treatments of acupuncture more or less all over my body which included the face and head. After 5 treatments I attended the PGA World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at Doral. With the help of walking sticks and a folding golf chair, I easily completed walking the 18 holes. When I left Dr. Chasens to return to Germany I did not use the walking sticks anymore and mastered airport security, immigration etc. without a problem. Here in Germany I have continued the acupuncture treatments.
Dr. Chasens obviously is an excellent doctor and master of acupuncture. His clear and calm personality gives assurance to people like myself without experience in acupuncture treatment. His team is very friendly and efficient and keeps perfect track of the appointments. I highly recommend Steve and his team.”
Back in May of this year my FSH levels were high, so I started acupuncture treatments at Coral Gables Acupuncture with the purpose of enhancing my chances to become pregnant. After having several acupuncture treatments I had more blood work done and the results showed a considerable drop in my FSH levels. With the help of your acupuncture treatment and your Chinese herbal medicine, I’m thrilled to let you know that I’m pregnant! Thank you for all your help! You guys are the best!!!
Five years ago I had ankle reconstruction and have tried therapy for years: MRIs, CT scans, shots, therapy, etc. After seeing a top neurologist at UM School of Medicine, he suggested acupuncture so I called Dr. Chasens’ office. The staff is amazingly professional, courteous, and accommodating. After four sessions I am pain free. If you are looking for pain relief, help with appetite issues, or just about anything else, I highly suggest you give his office a call. They have evening and Saturday appointments and even offer massages!!! Give them a call. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
After 5 years of searching for a solution to my back pain I finally had to give something new a try. I decided on Coral Gables Acupuncture because of their professional reputation in the community. I was not disappointed. I first met with Dr. Chasens who was generous with his time and explanations of my problem. He suggested a very short course of treatment to see if I would respond. Thank goodness I did! I am continuing to improve. The convenience of the office hours and location was helpful in allowing me to continue care – they are open 6 days a week 12 hours a day! If you have pain give them a try first!
A few months ago I was diagnosed with endometriosis. My Obgyn explained that I needed surgery in order to get pregnant. After sharing the news with my family, my brother recommended acupuncture as an alternative before surgery. I was very skeptical but I decided to give it a try. I loved Dr. Chasens and the staff at Coral Gables Acupuncture from the start. Dr. Chasens was very kind and professional and carefully explained how acupuncture worked. Each acupuncture session was painless and very relaxing. After about 8 sessions I was extremely happy to find out I was pregnant. Dr. Chasens has been great and the acupuncture has even helped with morning sickness. If you are thinkin about trying Chinese medicine I absolutely recommend Coral Gables Acupuncture.
After almost a year of undergoing fertility treatments, and prior to my second round of IVF, several of my friends recommended acupuncture to me. I finally decided to give it a try. I underwent 12 weeks of acupuncture, and our IVF was a success! Dr. Chasens and all of the staff at Coral Gables Acupuncture are so kind and they genuinely care about their patients. I am always greeted with a smile when I am in their office. I would highly recommend Coral Gables Acupunture for any type of chronic issue, pain, etc. It is painless and very relaxing.
This is truly a fabulous place to go! I had chronic back pain for years and had been to chiropractors and physiotherapists. I heavily medicated myself when I simply couldn’t take the pain. I feel very much like a poster-boy, only my story is true and I could kiss Dr. Chasens for it. My improvement was drastic and after one treatment at that. It didn’t happen instantly but I suppose everyone’s body is different and acts differently. No matter what your problem is, I highly suggest giving them a visit. They are not only obviously competent but also friendly and thoughtful. If you so desire, you will receive e-mails and phone calls to remind you of any up-coming appointments. A parking area around the back is provided and a warm greeting is always to be found there.
This was my first experience with acupuncture and I am quite pleased. I have had chronic lower back pain for several years. The treatments have alleviated my pain, reduced my stress levels and therefore increased my quality of life.
The staff is extremely professional. They make sure that you get both a reminder call as well as an e-mail to ensure that you don’t forget your appointment. I also appreciate that the fact that when you arrive you are seen almost immediately. This is a rare when it comes to doctors’ appointments. I also love the fact that they have great hours that can accommodate just about every schedule. I have no reservations in recommending Coral Gables Acupuncture .
I’ve been going to Dr. Chasens at Coral Gables Acupuncture since 2005. Dr. Chasens has been incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in the practice of acupuncture. Over the years, I’ve gone to Coral Gables Acupuncture for various issues and Dr. Chasens and the other Doctors in the practice have really helped me with my health. His staff is amazing; they’re all very collaborative and professional. I recommend Dr. Chasens and Coral Gables Acupuncture to anyone in need of alternative medicine and Chinese herbs.
I came to Dr. Chasens practice because I was going to start fertility treatments. Dr. Chasens explained that acupuncture would assist the conventional treatments for fertility. I began acupuncture and fertility treatment at the same time. After 2 months of acupuncture and 1 round of IUI, I learned that I was pregnant with twins. I am now 18 weeks into a healthy twin pregnancy. I continue to see Dr. Chasen to ensure that my babies have the healthiest environment possible. I’m confident that acupuncture prepared my body for the insemination. I highly recommend anyone who is considering fertility treatments to combine acupuncture treatment with Dr. Chasens.
I suffered a severe work related neck injury over five years ago that left me debilitated. I could not sleep or exert myself physically without aggravation. My initial medical insurance response was to send me to a pain clinic that mainly wanted to give me pills and more pills. I was quite adamant about obtaining an alternative outlet for relief and was finally authorized to seek help from acupuncture. This is how I was introduced to Coral Gables Acupunture. My pain was off the charts until Dr. Chasens and his staff set up a regiment for care. They have given me back a normal life without drugs.I feel great and am even able to continue exercising for my health. I will always be grateful to Dr. Chasens and his staff and will continue to seek their assistance for any health related issue.
For years now I’ve been trying every avenue to figure out a reason and treatment for my constant fatigue. I’d been to numerous doctors who ran tons of tests but never found anything. And if nothing showed up on their tests, then there must not be anything wrong with me…that’s the response and feeling I kept getting time after time. I decided to give acupuncture a try. Besides feeling the difference, the main and most important reason I keep going back is that I feel Dr. Chasens sincerely wants to help. After years of going to doctor after doctor who never looked further than test results, I cant begin to explain how refreshing and hopeful this is. I cant speak for him but to me it feels as if he enjoys the challenge of the puzzle, and to have someone like that in your corner is really wonderful.
Nothing short of a miracle! I had a life changing event take place in my life that affected me both physically and emotionally. I began to have anxiety, panic attacks, depression and no longer able to assume normal and daily life functions due to this dramatic situation. I met with Steven Chasens and his skilled and professional staff and over several months they did miracles. I was unable to drive by myself, walk down the street without waves of anxiety and depression hitting me. I went from an opportunistic successful professional with a wonderful family to a person that was unable to function. I Thank you for helping me get my life back!
I first started going to Coral Gables Acupuncture last year, seeking relief from insomnia and lower back pain. I was worn out and miserable from this double whammy. Pain meds and sleeping pills were out of the question because I use my brain for a living. I have received acupuncture before, and I must say IT WORKS. Dr. Chasens and his associates are one of the best practices I have encountered. They provide exceptional attention in a very relaxing environment, and are supported by a great staff. If you are experiencing pain or any condition–physical and/or mental–that prevents you from living to your fullest, call them up and schedule an appointment right now!
Relief from pain. Relaxation. I was neither a sceptic or true believer my first session but the relief from a few needles placed expertly by Steve Chasens convinced me. I came for a couple months and got my mobility back. I even had no pain after two ten hour flights! If you have had acupuncture before you will feel at home and if you’ve never tried it before they are friendly, welcoming and most importantly effective! The staff is great too!
The treatments had been so helpful. It is such a big difference from the time I started to now . I feel so relaxed and content when I leave the office. Doctor Chasens is a great healer. And Donna makes me feel so welcome at each visit. It is a joy coming to Coral Gables Acupuncture.
This is where you go if you truly want well trained, medically proficient Doctors of Chinese Medicine. The doctors are up to speed on current research within their own field and within Western Medicine. I cannot give high enough reviews for the quality of the medical care I have received here.
After 6 therapies my hot flashes have decreased about 70%… I’m taking herbs which help a lot.
Husbands neck and shoulder pain have gotten SO MUCH better! It’s very rare now that he gets the debilitating headaches. Dr Chasen is great!!
After receiving my first treatment I was pleased that I was seeing immediate results. The results then progressed and my physical discomforts became less and less. Seeing and feeling those results made me feel very happy. I now tell my friends and family to try acupuncture because I know that they won’t be dissapointed. My overall experience with the staff at Coral Gables Acupuncture has been outstanding. They are professional, yet have a personal touch.
“Steve Chasens is a terrific doctor. He saved me during my first pregnancy. I had daily migraines that were debilitating, plus all kinds of other issues that were very uncomfortable. Dr. Steve literally got me through my pregnancy – I could not have survived it without him. He also helped a few of my friends, who had previously tried everything, to conceive beautiful, healthy children. I recommended Dr. Steve to everyone. He is amazing!
