image1After 5 years of unsuccessful infertility treatments including 5 IUIs, 4 IVFs, 4 different doctors and clinics I turned to Dr. Kim. At that point I was very tired and frustrated but with some hope that I can conceive despite hearing that I have less than 1% chance of conceiving, and that I should pursue other alternatives including donor egg donations.
When I first started infertility treatments I was in my late 20s. My infertility was unexplained for 2 years. Later I was diagnosed with asymptomatic endometriosis and low ovarian count.

When I met Dr. Kim she was very nice, kind and nurturing. With her gentle support and prayers I learned to believe that I will be pregnant. After hearing my story she agreed that my chances of getting pregnant would be less than average but with dedicated treatment for 9-12 months with both acupuncture and Chinese medicine I may be able to improve my egg quality and conceive either naturally or through IVF. I went for acupuncture treatments twice a week and was drinking Chinese medicine 3 times a day in addition to following the diet recommended by Dr. Kim. Nine months into my treatment Dr. Kim has suggested that based on my improved composition and pulse I may consider IVF.
I was pregnant following the 1st cycle and had a very healthy and easy pregnancy. Five months ago I gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy. I will always be grateful to Dr. Kim for the miracle of his life, and fulfilling my husband and my dream of becoming parents. I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Kim to anyone experiencing difficulties conceiving.

I’m so happy to write a glowing recommendation for Dr. Kim. She very clearly had a huge impact on the success of my dreams to become a mother. My husband and I are high school sweet hearts, we always planned to have a big family but wanted to be responsible first. We wanted to finish school, buy a house, travel a bit and feel secure in our careers. Our parents had no issues with fertility and so we did not anticipate having any trouble trying to conceive when we decided the time was right. Much to our surprise it was not easy for us. We tried being relaxed, we tried timing with ovulation tests and charts, I even propped myself practically up on my head hoping gravity would help my husband’s sperm fertilize my eggs and still nothing. I felt my biological clock ticking and after trying for about two years I began to become very concerned. We reached out to fertility specialists and had tests run. Despite some low ranges of normal everything still came up within “normal”. I did find out that my thyroid was slightly off and took some medication to regulate that but still a year past my thyroid was testing normal and we were declared unexplained infertility patients. I felt such despair, love and family always meant so much more to me than monitory things and not being able to have the love story my husband and I shared result in a family we could teach to love and carry on our existence crushed me in a way I didn’t know it could. Thanks to Dr. Kim my story has a happy ending. I took those powerless feelings and decided to do something about it. I know dietary changes, acupuncture and vitamins are sometimes dismissed by the medical field as unnecessary but to me it was a tool at my disposal and if I didn’t try everything than who could I blame but myself if my dreams didn’t come true. So it wasn’t easy but things like white flour, coffee and ice cream left my diet. At the same time I listened to Dr. Kim took a strict regimen of vitamins and saw her multiple times in a week for acupuncture treatment. There was no guarantee this would work but I had to try. I put off my egg retrieval until Dr. Kim told me my body was healthy and ready. My results were amazing. My first egg retrieval prior to seeing Dr. Kim I produced over 30 eggs, they pulled 11 fertilized 10, 3 grew into 5 day embryos but after testing only 2 were normal and only grade B and C quality. With Dr. Kim’s care my second attempt at an egg retrieval resulted in 10 eggs, 4 made it to day 5 embryos after fertilization and 3 tested normal. Two frozen embryos were transfer 1 girl from my first egg retrieval prior to seeing Dr. Kim and 1 boy from my second retrieval after seeing Dr. Kim. Just a couple weeks later I received the good news that I was pregnant! With very strong numbers the doctors felt it might be twins. After just a short time I had bleeding and the doctors felt it may have originally been twins but one must not have made it. I now have a beautiful healthy baby boy (with Dr. Kim’s treatments) who is the light of my life. The girl from the first retrieval prior to Dr. Kim’s treatments just wasn’t strong enough. After the birth of my son I was determined to try again, I very much wanted to give him a sibling. We had 3 frozen embryos left 1 from the first retrieval without Dr. Kim’s treatments and 2 from the second with Dr. Kim’s treatments. With only enough money left for one more transfer we decided to give it our best shot and transfer the two remaining embryos that were retrieved and fertilized after seeing Dr. Kim. I’m so excited and grateful to say that I am now expecting twins! All three of the embryos after Dr. Kim’s care were so healthy that they all made it. That makes 3 babies in just two years. Our family is complete :)
Best Regards,

I started with Dr. Kim after years of trying to conceive with other doctors and so many visits to try to find out why I couldn’t get pregnant. I was told that I would never conceive on my own. I had endometriosis, a low egg count and some other medical problems that prevented me from conceiving. The Doctors said I needed to try IVF in order to have a child but it will not happen without it. Unfortunately I did not have that kind of money so there was no way I can go that route. I gave up for quite some time and was always so depressed when I heard of anyone getting pregnant or seeing women pregnant. Ironically one of my friends was told that she would never conceive either. She was actually told she had to adopt if she wanted to have children.

She had gone to Dr. Kim and had a beautiful baby boy naturally. I took her number down to have a consultation. Dr. Kim was very honest with me about my situation. I had a lot against me, my age, my endometriosis, low ovarian reserve, poor egg quality. I was 41 at the time when I went to see her, so time was not on my side. But we worked together and I started with the acupuncture first for about a half a month then started with the herbs. I needed to drink her herbs twice a day, follow her diet and take certain vitamins and also continue to do acupuncture. She told me to relax and not to try to get pregnant until the herbs got in my body for a couple months. After one month of the herbs, I found out I was pregnant. ( I got in trouble from Dr. Kim for trying) As much as this was such great news to me being I had never got pregnant before, Dr. Kim was very concerned and worried. She said my body was not ready to carry a child just yet and I had a very high risk of a miscarriage. Well 5 weeks later I did miscarry . As sad as it sounds it was pure excitement knowing that if these herbs worked after the first month then what can I expect down the road. Dr. Kim stated not to try again until she gives me the go (this time I didn’t) Approximately another 5 months past and she said we can start trying. Well after 2 months, I got pregnant. Not only was I so ecstatic that it happened again. I had an amazing pregnancy since my body was so clean and I was so healthy from the herbs, the vitamins, the diet, etc. I delivered a beautiful baby boy, a healthy baby boy in July 2012. I am so thankful to God, to my friend who led me to Dr. Kim and to Dr. Kim for helping me to have such an amazing miracle. I tell everyone my story. I am so blessed and so happy. I even went to the Doctors office that told me “NO” to show them that I conceived on my own. He was so amazed he even asked for Dr. Kim’s business cards. I am one that was told “NO” so many times and Dr. Kim and God showed me that it was possible. Thank You Doctor Kim!!!

I am 38 years old, experienced 6 habitual miscarriage. It happen 4-9 weeks, happen miscarried.
I went IVF Clinic, they told me I don’t have a problems of ovarian reserve, have poor egg quality and may have chromosome problems and a weak cervix. they retrieved 8 eggs and 5 made blastocysts and 3 made after PGD test, transfer 3 embryos and got pregnant.
But same thing happened, I miscarried it again. At the time I gave it up.
I decided to go to Dr. Kim for the last resort. Dr. Kim told me poor egg quality and week reproductive organ, told me I can have a pregnancy naturally without help of IVF. I followed Dr. Kim’s protocols drinking herbs without skipping and acupuncture treatments regularly.
6 months later,
She told me try naturally, I got pregnant in two months. I had healthy pregnancy, did not have a morning sickness thanks to Chinese herbal Medicine. Now I have a healthy and beautiful baby girl. I am going to Dr. Kim’s for # 2.

After approximately 3 years of trying to conceive after having a miscarriage, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. I found Dr. Kim. (Here’s my story) I had 3 IUI’s and 1 IVF that all had failed. I was ready to give up my dream of becoming a mom. But after hearing from my infertility doctor that acupuncture may help, I said that I would give it one last effort. I had nothing else to lose. (That was the last visit I had with an infertility doctor) So I went online and typed in “fertility and acupuncture” and Dr. Kim’s name popped up.

When I read the patient testimonials as well as all of the information on Dr. Kim’s website, my gut feeling told me to go and speak with her, so I did. I had a consultation with her and she explained what the regimen would consist of (vitamins, acupuncture, diet, and herbal tea). Dr. Kim was professional, patient, and her level of expertise in fertility made me feel very comfortable so I was excited to start my treatments. I had acupuncture treatments a couple of times a week and drank the herbal tea as Dr. Kim recommended. Dr. Kim was always compassionate and encouraging and always easy to talk to about any concerns or questions. After only 3 months of treatments, to my surprise,

I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I was so happy and so was Dr. Kim when I gave her the good news. I continued treatment with Dr. Kim throughout my first trimester. I had a good pregnancy and in February of 2013 I gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl. I recommend to any woman trying to conceive naturally to please try Dr. Kim’s treatment before trying anything else. There is hope.

Thank you Dr. Kim.

I am very glad I found Dr. Kim. I have been married 6 years and tried to have a baby naturally for 1 year and half. Not being successful, I went the route many other women took—I went to an infertility doctor, who told me I have poor ovarian reserve. We attempted 4 IUI and 2 IVF procedures. Each time, we failed to retrieve eggs because the eggs were not growing and were responding poorly to the medication. My doctor told me my only hope to naturally give birth was to get a donors egg.

My husband and I thought about this alternative but after discussing the matter, we wanted to see if there was another way we could have our own baby. My friend told me about Dr. Kim and we decided to try her treatment before choosing the donors egg option. I met Dr. Kim and she told me to be patient but to follow her regimen with Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture treatments. After nine months of treatment, she said we could go ahead with the IVF procedure. When I went back for the procedure, for the first time of my life, we found that four of my eggs were growing and three of them were big enough to retrieve. I got pregnant!! Now I have a beautiful 5 months old daughter.
I want to share my story with other women who have low ovarian reserve and are told that they are poor responders to IVF medication—there is hope. I am very grateful to Dr. Kim!

I came to Dr. Kim for Acupuncture and Herbs after having gone to 3 other acupuncturists in New York City. I was disappointed with the lack of knowledge and care from the 3 acupuncturists. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 2 years. I’ve had a myomectomy to remove a fibroid as well as stage 4 endometriosis. I also had low ovarian reserve. Before I came to see Dr. Kim, my husband and I started to consider donor eggs. Well lo and behold only after a few months of acupuncture and herb treatment with Dr. Kim, I became pregnant naturally! Along with a good, organic diet and exercise, I believe acupuncture and the use of herbs helped me get pregnant naturally.
Dr. Kim is wonderful and I would encourage all those that think it is the end of the road for them in the baby department to consider acupuncture and herbs and to go to a good, knowledgeable professional like Dr. Kim. 2 weeks ago, I delivered a healthy baby boy! Thanks Dr. Kim!!! I will definitely see her again when we try for baby #2.

Dr. Kim is just like any other Mom..she wants the best results for you! I found Dr. Kim after receiving very negative feedback from the first IVF clinic I visited. I was given a less than 1% chance of conceiving without IVF and a very slim chance with IVF. At 40 years of age, I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis, low AMH, high FSH, and diminished ovarian reserve. My hopes of becoming a Mom after finally marrying the man of my dreams felt all but shattered. I decided it was imperative that I take matters into my own hands.

I was not going to believe one IVF doctor with his grim outlook on my future, especially since I was able to conceive naturally on my first try, even though the result was an early miscarriage. I quickly did my homework, found Dr. Kim’s website, left her a voicemail on a Sunday evening and was in her office the following Tuesday for a consultation and first acupuncture treatment. My husband and I knew it was going to be a long road AND we are not patient people! I started seeing Dr. Kim in January 2013 at four times per week and immediately began drinking her herbal medicine twice daily.

Did I mention that my drive to her offices were over an hour each way?! It was my “other job” for months>>I would get home around 9PM after a full day or work and seeing Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim recommended we give treatment about 7-12 months before trying to conceive. In the interim, I found a new and amazing IVF doctor in NYC. He believed our case was not impossible as the other IVF doctor had suggested. After 6 months, Dr. Kim suggested that we start trying to conceive naturally. My husband and I were petrified and did not want to risk our only chance of getting this right the first time. After all, my age and diagnosis were very significant factors! We opted to proceed with IVF instead. On our very first IVF cycle, I produced 6 healthy eggs, 3 fertilized and 1 embryo took! We are now 16 weeks pregnant (November 2013) with a healthy and active baby.

I am nauseous every day (still) but we couldn’t be more pleased with our miracle, in the making!! Dr. Kim’s persistence and strictness the past 11 months are proof that it’s all worth it. We will always be eternally grateful to Dr. Kim for helping make our dreams a reality. You must be 100% dedicated to this process or it will not work. You must follow all instructions and be faithful to yourself. Do not lose faith because I was given a very slim chance of conceiving. My husband and I have a deep respect for Dr. Kim’s regimen.

We will always believe that her attention to detail and care played an integral role in making us “mommy and daddy.” Thank you Dr. Kim and staff. We love you!

My husband and I tried to conceive for over a year without success. I finally saw an infertility doctor and tried for more than another year with their help. I did 4 IUI’s and 3 IVF cycles with no success. the verdict was that I had a low ovarian reserve and therefore the quality of my eggs was not sufficient to have a healthy pregnancy. Only 5 eggs at most were ever retrieved and the few that fertilized wouldn’t grow even today 3.
I was told an egg donor was our best option. My husband had high sperm counts and motility, but his morphology was low, only about 3 to 4%. We were not ready to consider egg donation or adoption. We heard about Dr. Kim through a friend who had a very similar situation, only her husband’s counts were all low. She conceived after Dr. Kim’s treatment after only a few months! We thought this could be an answer for us, and it was!!! We both saw Dr. Kim several times a week and strictly followed her regimen including herbal medicine, vitamins, and a healthy diet. The herbal medicine does not taste delicious, but we both got used to it and added it to our daily routine in no time. (I suggest measuring the herbal medicine and pouring it into a coffee mug. Fill a small pot or bowl with hot water from the sink, and place the filled mug in the water to bring it to room temperature. It shouldn’t be cold from the fridge or too hot from heating on the stove. Then we would drink in one swift chug!). During our treatment with Dr. Kim, my husband lost 40 pounds which was much needed.

A Stomach condition that warranted daily medication lessened until it nearly disappeared. He is no longer taking medication and his stomach and digestion are better than ever. His morphology doubled to 8% which impressed our doctor who considered it up to normal. Several years ago, I had thyroid cancer which has not been a major threat, but my blood work consistently indicated that I could still have diseased cells in my body. I would have to test every 6 months and have regular ultrasounds to look for tumors. After a few months with Dr. Kim, my blood work was all clear for the first time in nearly 10 years! We both owe these wonderful health benefits to Dr. Kim and her regimen. Although we were happy with our health, we were still not conceiving. Dr. Kim advised us that the chances of success through IVF have greatly increased now that our bodies were so healthy and nourished. I resisted for months, convinced that it would happen naturally after all our efforts. Dr. Kim did not give up on me and I finally listened to her. We tried one more cycle of IVF and immediately had success! I had the most eggs retrieved of all my cycles and 7 out of 8 fertilized and grew to day 3 and beyond. We transferred 2 embryos and I am now entering my second trimester with twins!!!

I continued to see Dr. Kim through my first trimester which kept me calm as she reassured me that things were going well. IVF facilitated my pregnancy but Dr. Kim made it possible. I am absolutely sure that I would not be pregnant without her regimen, especially the herbal medicine. There is no drug that can help your egg quality. Nourishing my body with the acupuncture, herbal medicine, diet and vitamins is what made this possible for my husband and me. We are not only finally starting our family, but we have learned how to heave a healthy lifestyle for both us and our children. We will be forever grateful to Dr. Kim. Be patient, disciplined, and trust Dr. Kim, She can make miracles happen!!!

LOVE, Bonnie and Mark G.

I promised myself to share my success story if I get one, but it took me quite a bit of time. I am a Mommy of a beautiful one year old baby girl that keeps me very busy. First of all, I’d like to thank Dr. Kim for giving me a chance to experience motherhood. I met Dr. Kim in May 2012. I read about her on forums when I was desperately looking for help and hope. By that time, I had already gone through 8 months of IUI series and one IVF which was converted into IUI because I developed only two follicles on high dose of stims. I was 37 years old. The clinic I was attending didn’t want to do anything to do with me anymore, as my FSH went up to 18, AMH 0.1 and maximum of 3 basal follicles.

I was a so called “difficult case” and I would bring their success rate down. I also went for a few acupuncture treatments at a local office and those doctors didn’t make me feel like the treatment was going to help me and I felt like they didn’t know what they were doing. Acupuncture was new to me then. I was pleasantly surprised by the different approach Dr. Kim offered. First, I had diagnostic appointment where she explained everything on anatomical and physiological level. I am a medical professional and it’s very important for the treatment to make sense. She also didn’t give me false hope and told me everything the way she thought it was, and set me on the path of long and hard work. Dr. Kim gave me detailed instructions for diet, vitamins and supplements which I followed strictly. I came in for acupuncture at least three times a week and drank the herbs that she gave me twice a day. I also ordered frozen wheat grass. She always kept me updated on new research and followed the treatment that my fertility doctor did.

What I appreciated the most however were the important conversations she gave me during this difficult and stressful time. She told me that acupuncture alone wouldn’t help me and that I should combine it with IVF, but only after I complete a few month of herbal medicine and acupuncture first. I was one month short of 38 years old and was afraid to wait so I continued the IVFs along with acupuncture. I changed my fertility clinic and started working with a very supportive group of doctors who were willing to go with me as long as they see any follicles. First treatment on highest dose of steams helped me develop 3 eggs, 2 fertilized, but never made it to day 3. After that I had few cancelled cycles and two cycles when I developed one good size follicle but on both retrievals no eggs were extracted. Six month later, I went for my last IVF and I mean last treatment, because at that point I was ready to move on to donor’s eggs. That cycle, on medium dose of stims, they saw 3 follicles on ultrasound, on retrieval they found 6 mature eggs, 5 fertilized and on day three, taking into consideration my history and bad quality of eggs, my doctor transferred all 5 embryos. I got pregnant with a singleton. I kept up my acupuncture treatment and herbal medicine through the first trimester to ensure a stronger baby and prevent miscarriage. I had a beautiful and uneventful pregnancy. I was 39 when I got pregnant and I turned 40 when my baby was born. My daughter is 14 months month now. Every day she surprises me with new things she learns.

I still can’t believe that she is mine. Dr. Kim followed up on my condition through my entire pregnancy and sent a beautiful gift for my baby. At first, I was skeptical, but now I attribute the success of my IVF to acupuncture and Dr. Kim’s knowledge. I’m so glad someone shared her success and posted information about Dr. Kim on that forum and hope that my story helps someone too. Thanks for everything Dr. Kim!

I am a woman of color who began my journey at 45 years of age to conceive and I believe my faith kept me steadfast, despite the odds.
From reading the internet to a negative experience at a hospital in Livingston,NJ, I rose above it all and bridged my experience at Valley fertility clinic and my experience with Dr. Kim and her practice of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
This beautiful combination resulted in a health baby boy born 12/26/2014.

The “how” definitely was important. I made sure I drank the Chinese herbal medicine daily, followed the vitamin regime and faithfully attended my acupuncture sessions during my fertility process at Valley.
I am a firm believer that the marriage of western and eastern medicines was the contributing factor that assisted in a successful pregnancy .
While It was not easy, and the odds are not that great, the possibilities were possible at NJ Fertility Acupuncture Clinic.

buying our first home and starting two new career paths my husband and I decided it was time to start a family. I was 33 and he was 29, still young, I thought. After all, my mom had conceived three times after the age of 30 and that was 33 years ago! So I quit taking my contraceptive pill and let nature takes its course. After 6 months of letting it up to fate I decided to start tracking ovulation using ovulation sticks, temping and checking cervical mucus. Every month I was convinced that it was the month, that christmas I even bought a onesie that said ‘Daddys favorite xmas present’ in the hopes of surprising my husband with the news that we were pregnant. We tried and tried and tried until it wasnt even any fun anymore. Fast forward 4 months and I decided to see my obgyn. She did some bloodwork and sent my husband for tests and said everything was normal and to come back in a couple of months if I wasn’t pregnant. We were back again in two months with no success so she put me on clomid. Again 2 months later, nothing.

She looked at my bloodwork again and realized she didn’t have my AMH checked which is an indicator of low ovarian reserve. So when that came back low she sent me to a fertility clinic. There I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids and polyps and low ovarian reserve. Long story short I was devestated as the more I read about low AMH, which mine was very low, the more I thought there is no fixing this, until I heard about acupuncture. I read the book ‘inconceivable’ and decided to take matters into my own hands. So after two failed iui’s I went to see Doctor Kim. She gave me hope again and said that my numbers looked good despite my low AMH! So I made the 30 minute ride in rush hour traffic 3 times a week to see Doctor Kim. She gave me a diet to follow, which was very similar to what the book had suggested and I stuck to it. My friends and family thought I was a little crazy at first and it made socializing difficult but I was determined. I also got the herbal medicine that she insisted was the real key to success and was pretty diligent about taking that.

My tri-weekly visits were so relaxing and I really looked forward to that hour of me time. I thought, if nothing else, I’m getting some quality relaxation! After about 10 weeks of treatment, I started my 3rd iui attempt. I had such good follicle production that they almost cancelled it due to the risk of high order multiples! I was so visibly upset that my doctor called my insurance company to see if they would cover ivf instead and they did. They harvested 8 eggs when on my previous attempts only 2 eggs had matured. They implanted two and two took!!! The day I found out I was pregnant I had an appointment with Dr Kim. As she was checking my pulse and before I could tell her my news, she said ‘are you pregnant?’. Her tone was matter of fact like she knew the answer already!

I was shocked and we shared in the excitement together and made our plan for the following couple of months. Due to morning sickness I didn’t continue use of the herbal medicine for very much longer but I continued the diet with some modifications and the acupuncture of course. Fast forward to 36 weeks and I gave birth to two beautiful, healty baby boys. I am convinced that if it was not for Dr. Kims treatments I would never know this kind of love. Thank you Dr Kim for your kindness and positivity!

Dr Kim is an extremely knowledgeable, experienced professional who made a tremendous difference in our lives. We tried to conceive a child for three years including 4 cycles of IVF. We stuck closely to Dr Kim’s regimen of acupuncture and herbal medicine for the 6 month recommended treatment period. During that period Dr Kim was always hard working and encouraging. At the end of the 6 months Dr. Kim said “now you can have a baby” and she was right – we conceived soon after 6 months of treatment. I believe that Dr, Kim uses the thousands of years of accumulated Asia Medicine knowledge along with modern concepts and research to produce a positive result. As a medical professional myself, I have a new deep understanding and respect of traditional Oriental Medicine and a great respect and admiration for Dr. Kim. We will be returning soon for help in conceiving our second child. Thank You So Much-

Dr.Richardson M.

I found Dr. Kim after a lot of frustration and many weeks of researching various acupuncturests after suffering 2 miscarriages and endometriosis as well as ovarian cysts. I know from experience that not every doctor is what you are looking for and not every doctor has the same success as another, so ALWAYS do your research. After reading all of her testimonials and researching her practice I decided to give Dr. Kim a chance and made an appointment. Coming from a medical background where I hold standards extremely high, I was truly impressed by her thorough questionnaire and wealth of knowledge.

She knows just as much about Western medicine as she does Eastern medicine and is willing to work with any methods you choose to do in conjunction with acupuncture. Right away she diagnosed me and told me that my eggs are probably poor quality due to the endometriosis which can cause miscarriages. She said I would be pregnant, naturally, after 3 months but not to try before three months of treatment is complete. I figured that I would give this the best chance I can, go as much as possible and follow all of her instructions. I drove 45 minutes to and from her office 4 days a week (which was a huge commitment with a full time job), drank her awful tasting chinese herbs and took all of the supplements with the exception of wheatgrass (due to a wheat intolerance). After 3 months of acupuncture treatment we started trying again. At the 5th month I found out I was pregnant with twins(which actually happened during the 4th month of acupuncture)!!

I had a wonderful pregnancy and carried the twins full term with little to no complications. They were born beautiful and healthy at 5lbs 3 ounces and I was able to take both of them home when I left the hospital!!! Not only is Dr. Kim incredible at what she does but she truly cares about her patinets, is a great listener, is very kind and is always straight forward. If she thinks you have a low percentage of getting pregnant even with acupuncture, she will tell you. If she believes that you should do acupuncture with an alternative approach such as IVF, she will tell you that as well. The bottom line is Dr. Kim will do everything and anything she can help you to achieve your goal as long as you follow her protocols. I saw so many patients come in announcing they were pregnant with tears in their eyes and remember dreaming of the day I can do the same. My day came, thanks to the amazing help and expertise of Dr. Kim. I know that if it wasn’t her acupuncture and Chinese herbs, I would have suffered through many more miscarriages before perhaps I carried the full 9 months. I will never forget what she has done and would do it all over again knowing how successful it was. I highly recommend her to anyone who is having difficulty trying to conceive or carrying a baby full term.

When I turned 41, and 6 years after having my first child, I decided to try for a second baby. I turned to western medicine for testing, and it turned out that my FSH result was already elevated and etc. My husband sperm count and mobility were also lower than desired. It was all a bit of a shock since had no problems conceiving the first time and western doctors told me that only one thing to say – IVF. Somehow, it didn’t feel right , so I looked for other ways to help my body. I found Dr. Kim and I followed her program along with yoga for fertility. The program included substantial changes in my diet, lots of supplements, acupuncture 3 times a week and Chinese herbs regime. The part I dreaded most was quitting coffee and sugar. Having low blood pressure I used to dring 2-3 cups each day and couldn’t really wake up without it. But surprisingly once I started the herbs, I didn’t really crave coffee nor sugar that much. Soon I didn’t need it almost al all. 3 Minths into my new regime, I got pregnant naturally.

Dr. Kim had warned me that this might happen , my body wouldn’t be strong enough to support it. I lost the pregnancy at 8 weeks. Dr. Kim was an optimist, encouraged me to continue. She was convinced it will work out. She ensured I remained disciplined and positive. She shared with me other success stories which gave me hope. Her staff was warm and supportive And 6 months later, when I was almost 42, I got naturally pregnant again. Through the first trimester, I continued acupuncture treatments with all early pregnancy recommendations from Dr. Kim. My second baby boy was born in full term with no complications. He is now 8 months old!!! Thank you Dr.Kim!!!

My husband and I had been married for 3 years and ready to start a family. We were fairly young (my husband 29, me 28) so we thought getting pregnant would just happen. We started planning for the perfect time to conceive so the baby could be born at the perfect time…a year quickly went by…and no baby. We found out that I had a blocked fallopean tube and my husband had very low sperm count, poor motility and poor morphology. My OBGYN referred us to a fertility specialist who decided that IVF was our best bet to conceive. We were not anticipating such extreme measures but were pretty excited to get the process going, confident that it would lead to a pregnancy. We went to all of the classes, took shots for weeks and finally went through the egg retrieval and the transfer.

Two weeks later we got the call we had been waiting for, but to our dismay, I was not pregnant. My husband and I were distraught. We wondered what we had done wrong to deserve such heartbreak. Upon further testing the doctor discovered that I had low ovarian reserve. She had told us that it may take 2 or 3 more rounds of IVF to get pregnant or we might have to consider egg donation. Through a couple of coincidences, we found Dr. Kim. We had our first consultation in December and at the time we were getting ready for another round of IVF. Dr. Kim convinced us to put a hold on IVF. So reluctantly, my husband and I began seeking treatments with Dr. Kim. We followed a strict diet and vitamin regime and took Chinese Herbal Medicine for 4 months. Dr. Kim finally gave us the green flag to start trying again. Later on that same month, I walked into treatment room like I had every other day. Dr. Kim took my pulse, as she always does, but this time she told me to go home and take a pregnancy test. I was shocked to find out that I was pregnant!!! We just welcomed our beautiful baby boy who was born a year to the day I received my first treatment with Dr. Kim. We are so thankful that we found her and will definitely see her again when we decide to have another baby.

Dr. Kim- Yes, I had a healthy, beautiful baby boy on July 22nd, almost exactly a year after I came to you for treatment:) His name is Daniel. Please see attached a picture of baby and my testimony. I am doing well but as you know motherhood is very demanding. I will definitely stop by with the baby in a few months. It was July 2010 that I came to Dr. Kim’s for treatment. I was going to be 39 in a few days, and I was desperate to have a child. After trying for about 8 months, I had decided to do acupuncture after my doctor told me that I should have no problem getting pregnant. I first went to a facility in New York, and after a few sessions, just decided on instinct that I didn’t want to continue because I didn’t feel like their chinese medicine would be ‘authentic’. As destiny would have it, I was talking to a a friend of mine who was trying to have a second child, and she mentioned that she was doing acupunture and chinese herbal medician with Dr. Kim. I asked her if in Fort Lee, and told her that I had inquired about that place before but decided to go to New York facility.

I then decided to give Dr. Kim a try. Dr. Kim told me that most of her patiens start to get pregnant 3 months of the first treatment. I started treatment twice a week, taking the medicine. Dr. Kim was caring, encouraging, and positive. In November 2010, I became naturally pregnant-4 months after starting treatment. I remember calling Dr. Kim, she sounded just as excited as I was when I told her the wonderful news. It is now July 2011, and we have welcomed our healthy, beautiful baby boy into our lives. I highly recommend Dr. Kim-knowledgeable, caring practitioner.

My husband and I had tried to conceive our first child unsuccessfully for a year. I did not have any physiological issues so my infertility was due to unexplained causes. We had tried 2 rounds of intrauterine insemination without success. I wanted to try a different approach before going to invitro fertilization. As Dr. Kim recommended, I started a regimen of her blend of herbal medicine and twice weekly acupuncture treatments. As she predicted, I was naturally pregnant by the fourth month and I continued the treatments until the end of my first trimester. Thanks to Dr. Kim we have a beautiful daughter! I recommend Dr. Kim to anyone who has been unsuccessful with conventional approaches. She is caring and very supportive throughout the entire process. My husband and I are truly grateful to her.

I am seeking Dr. Kim’s treatment for my 2nd pregnancy. Before I had my first baby, I had undergone 2 IUI and 3 IVFs with 2 miscarriages. I had long suffered from PCOS and endometriosis, and nothing seemed to work. I was really heartbroken and wanted to try anything to have a baby. I finally succeeded on the 4th IVF attempt with Dr. Kim’s help. During the beginning of the pregnancy, I had placenta previa and was bleeding. Dr. Kim told me that I would be on bed rest for at least 2 months. My OB put me on bed rest and then took me off bed rest only after a few weeks. I started bleeding again, jeopardizing my pregnancy. Dr. Kim’s original advise was correct.

I ended up being on bed rest for another 2 months. Western medicine may be advanced, but I feel that it is always one step behind-your condition has to turn for the worse before you are treated. Oriental medicine, such as acupuncture, is more proactive. It is a fuzzy area of medicine-I don’t know why it works but it does. Both IVF and Oriental medicine worked hand-in-hand in my case. I could not have gotten pregnant without one or the other, and I am so happy that I got the results I wanted. There is hope out there for women suffering from infertility. I think the key is to never give up hope. I am so glad that I am seeing Dr. Kim again.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. Kim. I first saw her in May of 2011, after two failed IUI’s. Right from the start, I felt very comfortable with her, and I appreciated her compassion. After only 7 treatments, and a third round of IUI, I found out that I was pregnant! I continued with the acupuncture treatments throughout my first trimester, and I truly believe this was the reason for my healthy pregnancy.

Anyone having fertility issues should make it a priority to at least meet with Dr. Kim. There are just too many stories of women going through unsuccessful fertility treatments and then getting pregnant after acupuncture. I was never a believer in Eastern medicine, but I am now. There are just way too many examples of people like myself. I didn’t even need to take any Chinese herbs! If you do decide to give acupuncture a try, I would highly recommend Dr. Kim. She specializes in these types of medical issues and will give you helpful advice on achieving a healthy pregnancy. She has helped so many women like myself.

Lisa J.

You are in good hands!When I first walked into Dr. Kim’s office, I was devastated and emotionally drained. I had unsuccessfully gone through three inseminations and one in-vitro treatment. Dr. Kim was compassionate, honest and I appreciated her straightforwardness as she told me that was expected of me during the treatment.”You have blood stagnation. Blood is not flowing into the uterus very well”, she said. So, I followed the diet, took the herbs religiously and did as many acupuncture sessions. I started treatments in September of 2009 and was pregnant naturally by November of the same year ? a miracle indeed.

Dr. Kim said I should continue having acupuncture sessions throughout the first trimester.” It will make the baby stronger”, she would say. And it did! Isabella was born August 21st, 2010 ? my beautiful angel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Dr. Kim for your healing hands, the wonderful disgusting herbs and your compassion.

A Forever-grateful Mom of Baby Isabella, Margaret

This patient graduated from Harvard Medical School, is a physician in New York.I am a 34 year-old physician and last year experienced a painful miscarriage with my first pregnancy. After the miscarriage, I struggled with depression and anxiety for several months, and this worsened as the months went by and my husband and I were unable to conceive again. My OB physician said that at my age it could take a year to conceive again and that we should just keep trying.

I felt alone and unsupported, and I just didn’t see how I could continue on without doing something more. After 5 months, my husband made an appointment for me to see Dr. Kim. I immediately started acupuncture and herbal medicine under her kind and expert care. The combination of the treatments and her full support and devotion to helping me get pregnant helped relieve a great deal of my stress, sadness, and hopelessness. I feel that it was both her expertise in Chinese medicine as well as her spiritual guidance that helpd lift me out of the most difficult time of my life. Within one month, I was pregnant again! I continued to receive acupuncture treatments through the first trimester of my pregnancy and am now entering my second trimester of a healthy pregnancy.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kim to my friends and family, and to any woman who is struggling with infertility. As a physician I believe that acupuncture and herbal medicine provide benefit to health and fertility that traditional Western medicine cannot. The important thing is to find a licensed practitioner who is knowledgeable and trustworthy and who will not put your health at risk in any way. My husband and I did a lot of research before choosing Dr. Kim, and we are so happy that we found her!

Laura, S.

A visit to Dr. Kim is an absolute MUST for anyone who is dealing with infertility issues! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her knowledge and expertise about all things and conditions related to fertility and infertility. Before undergoing any infertility treatment such as IVF, IUI, I highly recommend making an appointment with Dr. Kim FIRST. I am 38 years old and, my husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for over a year before seeing Dr. Kim. At the same time I began treatment under Dr. Kim, I was also undergoing evaluation by a fertility doctor. I had a previous ectopic pregnancy, and the fertility doctor recommended IVF, which my husband and I agreed to pursue. After 5 months of consistent acupuncture and some herbal medicine, and literally days away from beginning our first IVF procedure, I discovered that I was PREGNANT!!!!!! My husband and I were literally”saved by the bell”, or more realistically, Dr. Kim’s treatment!

I truly believe that it was because of Dr. Kim expertise and rigorously following her advice and treatments multiple times a week, that I am successfully beginning my 5th month of pregnancy today. She has given me and my husband our”miracle.” Listen to Dr. Kim, follow all her advice, and have faith and patience, and you too can be blessed with a miracle. Thank you, Dr. Kim!

Marta, R.

My husband and I had been trying for more than 7 years to conceive on our own. Two years ago we went to an infertility specialist and they were unable to find an actual cause for us not to conceive. Due to many factors, we decided on IVF treatment and by the time we were ready for the process (a year and a half later, since our last visit with the specialist), our success rate was lower for several reasons; including age and elevated hormone (FSH) test. In between our visit with the infertility specialist and a year prior to the actual IVF treatment, I was introduced to acupuncture and thought after all these years, it couldn’t hurt or perhaps maybe this will be a way to increase my rate of IVF success.

I used/and followed the acupuncture, herbal tea treatment, and vitamin supplement regimen recommended by Dr. Kim up until the start of the IVF process. I’m happy to say our first try with the IVF process was a success. When my husband and I consulted our IVF specialist, he seemed to be more excited than we were. For one, the number of follicles I produced on my own actually increased over the year and the quality of the eggs retrieved were excellent. The specialist attested that this may have been due to my acupuncture treatment. I’m now 6 months pregnant and I’d like to thank Dr. Kim and her techniques for helping me to increase my chances of a successful IVF process. Unlike many Western practitioners, if you are willing, Dr. Kim also brings spirituality into practice. Therefore, with acupuncture, natural herbal remedies, and prayer I believe I’ve had an experience I’ll never forget and I recommend Dr. Kim’s services.

I wanted to thank you again and share with your patients the results of my acupuncture treatment when I was trying to get pregnant. I had been trying to conceive and had been seeing an infertility doctor for about one year before I asked that doctor if I could try acupuncture as well. The doctor confirmed that I could add acupuncture to my treatment and that it should not interfere with the Western medications I was taking. After about two months of acupuncture treatments by you, I became pregnant! The pregnancy went very smoothly and I gave birth to a full-term baby boy. I believe that your acupuncture treatments helped me conceive and helped prepare my body for a healthy pregnancy. As you know, I have recommended other friends to you and they have also had success in getting pregnant. Thank you for all your help and good wishes.

Sincerely, Jennifer S.

Here’s our testimonial. Sorry for the delay. Every word of the testimonial is true. When we first met Dr. Kim, on the day we found out the results of our first unsuccessful IVF attempt, we were both not too optimistic about our chances. After 4 years of trying, we had tried all standard Western medicine treatments as well as several elective surgeries. Every doctor had the same diagnosis: unexplained. Dr. Kim’s program seemed to be different from other treatments and we were committed to do everything she prescribed however unusual it seemed. The more we got to know Dr. Kim the more her treatment made sense. Dr. Kim was very sensitive and caring. We even joked that Dr. Kim cared more than we did. After two months of treatment, we were getting ready for another IVF cycle, Dr. Kim noticed a change in my wife’s pulse and advised her to get a pregnancy test.

When we did get a test a week later, we found out we were pregnant to our complete disbelief that after 4 years we could conceive our baby they way we always dreamed of. Our daughter is now 3 months old and we all are very thankful to Dr. Kim for all your knowledge and care. Dr. Kim is a miracle worker and there is no other way to describe it. She made a miracle in our lives and we are very thankful and also blessed that we found you. Thank you Dr. Kim for helping us realize our dream.

I spent 8 years trying to conceive with my husband. We tried everything. After talking to friends, I decided to try something new. Dr. Kim develops her own recipe of chinese herbal medicine personalized for my husband and myself based on tests and surveys that we took. I didn’t believe or disbelieve that the herbal medicine would work, but we felt that we didn’t have anything to lose. We took the chinese herbal medicine for 6 months and then amazingly, I became pregnant with twin girls!! They are beautiful and healthy. We are a very happy family now. Thank you Dr. Kim for helping us start a family! We believe the chinese herbal medicine was integral to conceiving my twin daughters.

I had been seeing Dr Kim for almost a year prior to trying to conceive. At first, I was seeing her to ease the pain of fibromyalgia. Once my husband and I decided to try to start a family, at 41 years of age, it was obvious based on my doctor’s advice that it wasn’t going to be so easy. I decided to go through IVF in order to conceive. However, I didn’t like the statistics showing probability of successful conception when a woman is over 40. So, I decided to take a holistic approach to conception. I’ve relied in the past on holistic remedies and not just on pharmaceutical approaches to health. So, I applied that to conception as well by seeing an herbalist and seeing Dr Kim to tap into the benefits of acupuncture for fertility. In addition, I kept a positive attitude and meditated to relieve stress and visualize a positive outcome. I believed that stress and lack of faith that I could become pregnant could hinder my success.

So, I attacked conception on all fronts as they say. I had gone through a couple of IVF cycles before conceiving, all the while seeing Dr Kim 2-3 times per week as a standard part of my care. Dr Kim was very reassuring and gave helpful advice and educated me on her technique to tap into the potential of acupuncture benefits on fertility. I left all treatments feeling more centered, relaxed and my body felt better than when I entered her office. I believe that all elements of my care played a hand in the fact that I conceived my twin boys; however, I think in many ways, Dr Kim’s treatments were equally important to the pharmaceutical intervention of IVF that I received (and with no side effects!)

I just wanted to share my story and give you all hope that miracles happen!!! I was turned down by doctors as helpless case for even trying for an IVF because my FSH has been between 18-23 in the past 4 years. I finally convinced one RE to give me a chance to try. Naturally, the RE was triumphing when the first IVF attempt failed. I begged to be given one last chance to try. I started to research how acupuncture affects infertility.
I had decided that the second IVF attempt will be my last one due to the uncomfortable, stressful and exhausting nature of the procedure. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Kim, I started doing acupuncture about 10 weeks before the begging of the scheduled IVF cycle. I did it 2- 3 times a week/60 Min per treatment. When the scheduled day came, we were very nervous and anxious to find out what the outcome was going to be. The eggs retrieved were very good quality, better than the first IVF attempt, although they were fewer, Unlikely the first time, this time all eggs fertilized and appropriate number of embryos were transferred successfully. I did acupuncture on the day of the transfer (very crucial to do it within an hour or two after the transfer) and few times in the following week. After the long 2 week wait period, we were thrilled to find out that I was pregnant! Now, few weeks later all is going well, heart beat has been detected and we are very optismistic for the future. I am very grateful to Dr. Kim for all her personal care and dedication.

She has advised me along the way and looked for my best. I followed her advice strictly. Dr. Kim is a wonderful acupuncturist. She is very knowledgeable in her field of treating infertility and makes the client feel comfortable and informed. She takes great care in evaluating the client’s issue and choosing the appropriate treatment. I would recommend her to anyone. Great heartfelt thanks, Dr. Kim!

We like to thank you very much Dr. Kim for taking such good care of us. The acupuncture sessions were very helpful in easing the pain to go thru such a difficult physically and emotionally time during IVF cycles. And also your talks and good advice all the time were much appreciated. Even though we had our doubts in the beginning that it will work because we already had a failed cycle without acupuncture, we thought there is nothing to loose with trying something new which a lot of people recommend. The sessions gave us hope for a new start with IVF. With lots of prayers and wonderful relaxing acupuncture sessions I got pregnant with my second IVF cycle.

I am 40 years old and my doctor told me I could never have a baby. I had been married for four years ? my husband and I had been trying to conceive our entire marriage. My doctor tested me and told me that my FSH level was 45 and that it was not possible for me to get pregnant. However, I did not want to give up at that point. I felt that I had no choice but to look at alternative medicine. I came to Dr. Kim. Dr. Kim put me a regimen of acupuncture 2-3 times a week, chinese harbal medicine and diet. Within seven months, I got pregnant naturally! It was a miracle. Thank you Dr. Kim.

Michelle M.

Dr.Kim, It meant a great deal to me and my husband that you and your husband attended our joyous occasion celebrating the birth of our precious twins this past Sunday! We really appreciated that you both took the time, particularly on a Sunday, to share this day with us! We only wish that we had more time to talk then! A million thanks as well for the super generous gift and beautiful card! We really appreciate it! We could not have gotten to this place without you!

All of your care and support, both through your incredible skill as an Acupuncturist and Eastern Medicine Specialist and your kindness as a friend; all of your prayers on our behalf! You are one-of-a kind and we are very grateful! P.s. After the twins get their medical shots, we can arrange a visit! I will also send you photos via e-mail once we download them!
