Professional and Flexible
I must write a review extolling the virtues of Medical Acupuncture and Nutrition Clinic with Dr. Yu Kang. To say that I have found the right professional to suit my needs is an understatement. She is an expert on knowing the body and assisting her clients make decisions that will increase their energy, aid them to lose weight and improve their overall outlook. I came to Dr. Kang after being told my fertility concerns were insurmountable. Dr. Kang is the first person to give me hope. She prescribed a new way of eating (she has a degree in nutrition from Duke University) and has supported me during times I have not been as dedicated. In following her eating plan I have lost 11 pounds in five weeks! She has late and weekend hours and her staff are courteous and accommodating. If you want an experienced professional with a history of proven results, look no further.

Yang is a great nurse and knows her herbs and I enjoyed being a patient at her clinic it has been a very good experience and result. I would recommend other people as well.The only concerns is her not over being over work or open other day of the week because of wait time.Maybe hire someone else to help her out.

Dr. Kang has done a great job addressing my health issues dealing with fibroid shrinkage and balancing my body for overall good health. I feel better, look better and will continue working with her to gain and maintain optimal health. The treatments have also worked to improve my fertility to help prepare us to conceive! I'm so glad that I found her and she's really been a godsend!

Hello Dr Kang!
I want to thank you again for all your help with my son Vadim! Thank you for your time, energy, knowledge and dedication!
I talk to him every week and he feels much better after your treatment.
I tell all my friends about you and your practice and recommend you as a very professional and experienced doctor.
Just yesterday I gave your business card to our family friend who might need some help.
Thank you very much for all your help!

A life saver
My wife and I have been going to Dr Kang for over 2 years. We initially considered acupuncture as an act of desperation after my wife was diagnosed with chronic vertigo, and I was diagnosed with sciatica and instructed to buy a large bottle of Tylenol, try a few exercises and learn to live with the condition.
Dr Kang has been a life saver, my wife has recovered from vertigo and my back pain has been reduced significantly. My wife and I are firm believers in pro-active health management and visit Dr Kang on a regular basis for an evaluation and treatment, we think of it as preventive maintenance. On a number of occasions she has identified issues that required the attention of a MD and she suggested that I have them checked out.
Recently my wife tripped over a loose shoelace, fell and fractured her upper arm bone into multiple pieces. With Dr Kang's help my wife's recovery has been excellent, the bone fragments are now perfectly aligned, X-rays show significant new bone growth and my wife has started physical therapy, all with a month of the accident. What is even more remarkable is the speed of my wife's recovery considering that my wife is in her mid 60s.
Over the years we have found Dr Kang to be very knowledgeable, her treatment is effective and she offers sound and practical guidance and advice.

Dr. Kang is a very knowledgeable professional, and explains what she is doing and how her treatment can help you. She listens to your concerns. She is kind and unrushed, and takes her time with her patients. I had acupuncture for a back, hip, knee problem. It has taken several sessions, but I am encouraged and feeling better.

Dr. Kang gave me my life back !
I spent 2 years in doctor's offices - even twice at Mayo Clinic - with conflicting results and no clear diagnoses. All I knew is that I was throwing up countless times a day and had constant nausea with doctors telling me I just had to learn to live with it. It was no way to live!!!!!! I was frustrated and exhausted....and ready to give up.
Dr. Kang assured me during that first 2 hour visit that if I would stick with it (no pun intended) that she could help me. And she has. I go to work, I have energy, I spend time with my friends and family, and best of all....no more vomiting. I admit...I still have a little nausea now and again but only when I ignore the things Dr. Kang has taught me about my own body and what it is telling me.
Thank you, Dr. Kang....you did give me my life back.

Dr. Kan is excellent!
Dr. Kan is treating me for menopausal symptoms and tension of my neck. She understand my condition and is the only one ( i have been to chiropractors, MDs, Holistic practitioners) Who uses the five elements of Chinese medicine. Tongue diagnosis, herbs, diet, cupping and acupuncture. She is very knowledgeable and approachable at the same time. I look forward to her appointment because I feel I am learning with her ans also feeling better after the treatment.
Dr Kan made me feel I am a partner in taking care of my health instead of the standard modus operandi of Medical doctors or even other practitioners I have encounter.

My session of cuping and acupuncture with Dr Yu was deeply relaxing. In fact, I was in such a deep sleep was not even aware I was asleep. ( was reported snoring :).. I have learned that deep relaxation is a key to activating our body's natural regenerative healing.
I awoke feeling refreshed and knowing Dr Yu had again used her skill to continue me on my healing path.
Thank you Dr Yu,

I went to see Dr Kang for lower back pain that had made it difficult for me to stand for any length of time and had caused me restrictions in my activity. I did not want to take strong pain killers and was looking for an alternative therapy. I also noticed my energy level was decreasing and I had become frustrated and discouraged. Dr Kang helped me so much and really helped relieve the back pain and has certainly helped to increased my energy level. She is so kind and takes all the time you need to listen to your symptoms and to make recommendations. She has a special gift and I highly recommend her care. She really has made a difference in my life.

A Miracle Worker
For the last 10+ years, I have had back problems. It wouldn't take much to slip a disk and be out of submission for 1-2 weeks trying to recover. I literally stand "crooked" when this happens.
As I have gotten older (as of late) I don't slip a disk anymore, My back is just very dull and always in pain. The most recent episode of this occurred only a couple of weeks ago.
I had been in a lot of pain for about 3 weeks but just learned to live with it.
A chance encounter with Doctor Yu lead to my very first acupuncture session in my 41 years on earth. That's right. I have never tried acupuncture before.
She asked me about my back pain, how long have I had back problems and where exactly does it hurt.
As I was laid out on the bed, she was filling me with amazing information of breathing, meditating and diet suggestions.
I then laid on my back as she applied the "cups" with suction power.
My first reaction was "wow, this feels very different."
She then added the acupuncture as well.
After the session, I sat down in my car to go home and thought to myself, "My back is not hurting anymore, but..nahhh.. this is all in my head. Couldn't have worked that soon."
When I got home that night I barely remember it because I slept like a rock and had wonderful, peaceful dreams.
I am happy to say that it has been almost 3 weeks now since my acupuncture session and my back feels wonderful...even still!!
Dr. Yu is amazing and I have recommended her to many of my friends already.
I cannot wait for my next session!

Dr. Kang- a life saver!
"Since November 2006, all my Pap Smear tests came back positive for moderate (grade II) cervical high grade dysplasia (confirmed by biopsy). I had two Leep procedures done (standard medical “treatment”) with no positive result; The dysplasia was still there. My doctor proposed a third Leep procedure, warning me that it is mandatory to prevent the dysplasia from transforming into something very serious. I refused the third Leep procedure, and I immediately came to Yu Kang, LAC, RD, LD, DIPOM at the end of 2008.
For the first time in many months I felt that I was treated like a human being, and that somebody genuinely cares about me. With a patience and kindness that I could never imagine Yu Kang, OMD, listened to all the things that I had to say, and then told me about the treatment that I had to follow. She also told me that I need to be patient, because the body needs time to recover, and strictly follow all the things that she prescribed for me (including the dietary changes). She gave me hope and courage in a time when all the other “doctors” warned me that my only chance to prevent a worsening of the dysplasia is a third Leep procedure.
After about four months of treatment my lab results came back normal. I received a phone call from my doctor, and she told me that she could not explain the radical change in my condition (after so many failed attempts to improve my health through the standard “procedures”).
I had another Pap Smear test and biopsy after six more months, and both of them came back normal.
This is my story that I wanted to share with all the other patients. My message is: do not be desperate, and do not always limit your treatment options to what the standard “doctor” says. Many of them do not even want to hear about “alternative” options (as in the case of my doctor). If you just want to listen to what they have to say, you might miss your chance to regain your so much desired health.
Finally, I would like to tell all the patients to do exactly what Yu Kang, LAC, RD, LD, DIPOM tells you to do. I did (fruit smoothies, eight grains soup, more fruits and vegetables, more exercise) and thanks to her, I avoided a third harmful surgery. Trust Yu Kang, LAC, RD, LD, DIPOM, trust yourself, and do not give up!

Best Acupuncturist in Atlanta
I have been seeing Yu Kang as my acupuncturist for a year and a half, and she is the best one I have ever been to. First, she uses smaller needles, so it doesn't hurt as much as it has at other acupuncturist's. Secondly, I consistently achieve that semi-sleeping, meditative sleep that makes acupuncture so restorative. She has enabled me to improve my chronic illness. Whenever I feel ill, I go to her and bounce right back. I highly recommend Yu Kang and Medical Acupuncture and Nutrition.

Lyme Disease in Remission
I want everyone who suffers from Lyme to know about my experience. After years of suffering and going to the best LLAD doctors in the country pumping me full of antibiotics, I am finding that I can "manage" my life again through Dr. Kang's treatments. Dr. Kang has been key to my recovery, and has done as much if not more than anyone else to help me get better. I don't know how this stuff works, but it works - after trying everything else. Chin up and have hope - Dr. Kang can do everything she says she will do for you and more. She has also significantly helped two of my good friends - one with Epstein Barr and one also with Lyme.
