Two weeks ago, I was fortunate to meet Dr. Leng, who changed my life dramatically.
On March 17 this year, I was involved in a car accident on the Queensway. My car was hit, crossed two lanes and slammed into the barrier, headon. I had shooting pains in my neck, ears, and throat. My glands were so swollen, I could see them just by looking in the mirror. Swallowing was very difficult. I was told by my doctor on three visits, that it was soft tissue damage which heals slowly. I was in pain everyday, and knew something was wrong, but there was nothing I could do. Finally, two weeks ago, a coworker recomended Dr. Linda Leng, and suggested acupuncture. Now, I will admit, the sight of a needle in a doctor’s hands terrifies me. I am deathly afraid of needles. However, I decided that a few needles in my neck or back could not be worse than the pain I was in all day, and night. I cannot find the words to express my experience with Dr. Leng. My pains had lessened dramatically after my first visit. I could no longer see my glands hanging, and I could swallow without difficulty, for the first time in almost eight months. Now, after my third session, I am pain free. I feel as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
Dr. Leng is kind, patient, gentle and beautiful. A session with her is like visiting a friend. She made sure I was comfortable, and relaxed. It was like preparing for a nap instead of acupuncture. I was very fortunate to meet Dr. Leng, and I highly recommend her to anyone, who is in pain or discomfort. You will leave her office a new person, with the feeling of being treated by someone who genuinely cares. Thank you Dr. Leng.
