Jones W. : I had stomach ache, it kept me awake all night without sleep. It is very painful and eating some stomach pain medicine does not help much. In the meantime, I had dinner party with very close friend whose son is just graduated from college. I felt very sorry if I could not go. Someone referred me to see Dr. Lin. Originally I did not put too much hope on it. After one treatment, it was amazing that the pain went away and I could have delicious food as much as I would at my friend's dinner party except drinking the wine. Based on my own experiment, it might take 2 to 3 days for acid re-flux medicine before the pain will fully go away. I really appreciate Dr. Lin's treatment.
