Patient Feedback

Mr., Benjie Abad Santos

"When I had my stroke in 2018, my doctor told me I would never walk again. I was totally paralyzed on my right side. Even though I would undergo physical therapy, I did not progress much in three months and I was beginning to lose hope. My fraternity Brother introduced me to Dr. Philip. I began receiving acupuncture on my scalp and on my body. It was slow, but after a month I could move a little, after another month I could stand and grasp things and soon I could move around without assistance. Right now I am even lifting weights again and practicing my basketball. Acupuncture alone did not cure me, but it was a great addition to the physical therapy sessions given by Brod Charvy Parra. Doctor Philip has since become a great friend and a fraternity Brother as well!

Living outside of the Philippines, I've gone to 2 other acupuncturists and I can't help but compare Dr. Philip's skills and knowledge. I can say that an older practitioner does not mean more experienced and knowledgeable."

Last week I couldn't walk.  Every step sent intense stabbing pain to my lower back which radiated back to my right thigh.  I was given (a painkiller) and a muscle relaxant to ease the pain but both drugs didn't work.  I went to Dr. Philip last week in the hopes of getting just a bit of relief.  When he inserted the needles on my right hand, I was instantly relieved.  He also made me move my trunk, which I easily did.  Dr. Tan-Gatue is truly a miracle worker.

Patient as a youth

With a referral from a doctor-friend, I first came to Dr. Philip's clinic with sleep problem as my chief complaint. I eventually asked him to also help me with my dysmenorrhea because my menstruations are getting really heavy, the pain has been unbearable, the high-dosage painkillers I'm taking as prescribed by my OB are not as effective anymore, and my cycle started to become longer since a year ago. Add to that the anxiety attacks I've been having since this COVID-19 hullabaloo.
But after consistent acupuncture sessions since last October, I noticed that my cycle shortened and went back to my normal. I've been getting good sleep also as my anxiety meds are supplemented by acupuncture. I think I would still come for more sessions but that is not a problem since he is accommodating in answering my queries and his secretary, Ms. Sheena, is polite even in our SMS exchanges. I also like that his approach is like a marriage of Western and Chinese Medicine so I really feel well cared of. I've been recommending his acupuncture services to friends who are curious about it.
