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

This is definitely a hidden gem in Beaverton, OR. We have been receiving treatment from Dr. Lei Liu for a few years. My son has been suffering from migraine headaches since he was 10 years old, when he turned 13, he started to get more frequent headaches (every 7 to 10 days). It's heart-breaking as a parent to see such a young kid starting to take pain killers so frequently, so we started to look for other options.

Lei Liu is ever so patient and caring, my son totally trust him since day one. After a few months of treatment, his headache has been under control. He only has to have maintenance treatment every 6 weeks now, and only comes down with less than a couple of headaches per year. We cannot thank the team enough, they are courteous, polite, flexible, and professional. If you are looking for a caring team who puts your health first, I will definitely recommend G&L in a heart beat!

They really take care of you, and they are very good at what they do. They have let me know that I have other issues to deal with that is not their purview.
