Patient Success Story

It took my doctors four years to diagnose Burning Mouth Syndrome as my chronic pain got worse and worse.

During that time I tried 20 different herbs and prescriptions as my doctors tried to find solutions to the worsening chronic pain. They sent me to 10 "Handling Pain Classes," several pain clinics, two specialists at OHSU, many counselors, and all kinds of resources to try and minimize the pain. As we reached what I felt the end of resources we decided to try acupuncture which had been recommended by doctors over the years but we had delayed because insurance did not cover it.

I went from a 8 or 9 on the pain scale all day every day to a 1 or 2. Every week the acupuncture reduced the pain. I was amazed, and every week the pain lessened. Lei Liu and his staff have made a tremendous improvement in my pain, stress, and anxiety. I highly recommend acupuncture, Lei Liu, and his clinic to anyone looking for help and relief.

Medicines and procedures I've tried prior to acupuncture:

  • Vitamin B Complex
  • Allergy test, blood work
  • Biopsy of mouth
  • Fluconazole
  • Protopic Ointment
  • Gabapentin (tried twice)
  • Doxepin cream
  • Tacrolimus ointment
  • Mometasone
  • Ativan
  • Lyrica
  • Prednisone
  • Ketoconazole cream
  • Topiramate
  • Clonazepam
  • Duloxetine
  • Carbamazepine
  • Buspar

They're all really great people and the facility is lovely. I came in skeptical and terrified my 1st visit but now turn to them whenever I need help.

I have been a patient here since 2008.

November 2015, I was in a traffic accident, hit from behind and had nerve damage. Acupuncture is a treatment that the state of Oregon covers at the patient's choosing. Dr. Liu and I focused on the car accident damage, suspending my regular treatments for a while until the car accident treatment was complete. The treatments were remarkable and did wonders to heal me. He used acupuncture massage in addition to needles. It's the best recovery treatment I've ever had and I continued the massage after returning to regular treatments.

LAC Danielle and LAC Sarah also do excellent treatments in both acupuncture and massage at the West Linn office. I have had acupuncture in two other states where I've lived and G&L is the best.
