"The doctors here are extremely professional and talented. They identified the real issues that were making me sick and how to fix them. I have lost alot of faith in western medicine. I really do think this will lead me to a path to healing."

"I really enjoyed my visit. The acupuncturist was very knowledgeable & took the time to properly asses and treat the areas in the need of attention. I did not feel rushed. The masseure was very good. Overall I had a great experience here."

"This was my first time using acupuncture. For years I have had bouts of sciatic pain. This time it was severe for five weeks, and I was in great distress. After the first session, I had significant relief immediately. After 3 sessions I’m having long-lasting relief. I’m happy I chose Dr. Lee and grateful for his skills. I am so impressed I will probably see him again and again for overall health. Also, he and his staff are very kind and courteous, and the office is clean and professional."

"I highly recommend Dr. Lee to anyone seeking an alternative way of treating their pain and stress issues. Dr. Lee and his Staff are true professionals as they took the time to thoroughly explain and detail what was going to happen to me before anything started, and why they were going to do those certain procedures. After just one treatment I can definitely feel the difference, it as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Additionally, Dr. Lee and his Staff create an incredibly peaceful and relaxing environment, and are just as nice and sweet."

"Highly recommend! Dr.Lee is personable and excellent in what he does. I saw him for eczema and after seeing him my condition has been improving since. Grace, who is the assistant, is very pleasant to talk to as well. They care about your need and take a very personable approach in their diagnosis. Very satisfied with their superb service, and the price is generous."

"Having been to 5-6 different places over 8 years, its the best acupuncture I've had. Had some neck pain as well as mental/physical stress from work but this helped immensely after a few treatments. Basically all my woes went away, will still do a few times a year to keep the doctor away. The acupuncturist will ask the level of needle depth or prickliness you prefer and he will adjust (only lasts for a split second, if even that). Me, I prefer the most effective deepest treatment..."

"The session went great! The Accupuncture really hit my tense spots. I def felt it. And the massage was really thorough. It was a deep tissue massage so don’t expect it to be relaxing, it was intense."

— 5 STARS FROM Eva L. (Groupon) 

"I had a major shoulder/back pain after giving birth to my second child, but after couple of sessions, the pain is almost gone. Dr. Lee is highly attentive and very experienced, so I highly recommend to see Dr. Lee when you have any pain issues and are in need of acupuncture. Also, the massage therapist is amazing, and I honestly think that she is one of the best in town. I am very satisfied with the service, and the combination of acupuncture and massage at the end of the session is perfect for postpartum recovery!"

"I had a severe psoriasis and one of my friends recommended Dr. Lee. After taking the herb medicine for 2 weeks, my condition got much better, and I just got another batch so I can continue to take it for the next 3 weeks. I went to so many different dermatologists (including so called psoriasis experts) to get treatment, but all they focused on was superficial treatment of skin using steroids.My overall health got much better in addition to psoriasis, and I highly recommend Dr.Lee for wholistic improvement of health."

"As this was my first time getting acupuncture, I felt very nervous. However, right as I walked in, I was immediately greeted with a smile and a warm welcome from the receptionist. Once I filled out the paperwork, I was taken into the doctor's room and was given a very thorough consultation. Dr. Lee is very friendly and knowledgeable. When the procedure began, he gave me a heads-up about which areas would potentially hurt the most."

"It was my first time trying acupuncture and I’m glad I tried it at DH Acupuncture. He thoroughly went over the areas with discomfort and treated them. Can’t wait to be back!"

— 5 STARS FROM Hyangmi K. (Groupon) 

"I had a great experience at DH Acupuncture. The staff was very kind and intelligent taking the time to truly understand my problem areas. They were very comforting throughout the process - this was the first time I had any acupuncture/cupping done so it was a bit nerve wracking for me. I will definitely be going back and recommending to others. I left feeling great."

"Really loved the service and attention here and felt immediate relief from issues that had been bothering me for some time. Can't wait to return!"

"The place is clean and spacious. Dr.Lee is very gentle and detailed when doing acupuncture. Grace, the front desk lady is friendly and helpful too. Looking forward to come back again."

"Dr. Lee took the time to understand my needs and personalize my treatment. He was extremely gentle, thorough, and patient. I woke up the next morning feeling refreshed and am looking forward to future treatments!"

5 STARS FROM Amy R. (Groupon)


"Highly Recommend! This is a small business with attentive, friendly, and competent practitioners that offer quality services. I came in with severe lower back stiffness as well as neck & upper back pain and in addition to treatment for my back, asked Dr. Donghwan Lee for targeted treatment to aid my recent onset of stress and anxiety. I purchased the acupuncture with cupping package through Groupon and honestly couldn't be happier with the results! Dr. Lee and his lovely assistant Grace went through a thorough evaluation, and I immediately felt comfortable and in good hands. The treatment itself was fantastic and provided immediate relief. I have received both acupuncture and cupping treatments in the past, however never felt the degree of satisfaction with treatment results that I experienced here. I feel great and have peace of mind knowing that if I feel pain in the future, Dr. Lee will be able to help! The environment is clean, calming, and respectful, with private treatment rooms and ample space. It is also conveniently located close to subway transportation."

5 STARS FROM Michelle R. (Groupon)


"I am quite familiar with acupuncture therapy as I lived in China for several years, once I moved to the USA I was very happy to find this therapy place. Acupuncture treatment helps me to avoid sleeping problems, which I started to have due to increased work stress. I really enjoyed the session and I would highly recommend it for anybody having sleeping problems. The office is clean and well equipped and the staff are very professional and considerate."

5 STARS FROM Ksenia M. (Yelp)


"My first time trying acupuncture and I went based on the recommendation from a good friend, but it certainly helped with my back issues! Highly recommended and I'll certainly be going back again soon. Polite and friendly service."

5 STARS FROM Jon S. (Yelp)


"I have quite a bit of experience in being treated by acupuncture and massage. I live in New York, Santa Monica, and Tokyo. In each city, I have acupuncturist and massage therapist that I designate as "my body care people." DHACU is my New York body care people. I have been going there twice a week, and there have been significant improvements in my physical conditions . Dr. Lee seldom hits a spot that gives an unnecessary pinch. This out of over 30 needles a session. My massage therapist, Gloria is also very good. And the receptionist, Grace is a very nice person to talk to. Highly recommended. One suggestion: you should bring your own portable music player with a mini jack cable."



"I had pain on my left feet when I walk I felt pain on big toe. Whenver I walk, my left feet pose was weird because of the pain. However I had amazing aqupuncture with Dr. Lee. Only one time aqupuncture helped my feet pain scale and I can walk normal. It was so surprised happening to me because I do not believe the acupuncture but it work well and I am going have few more times aqupuncture. Anyone in pain I really recommend Dr. DH Lee. He knows the meridian points and honest!!!!"

5 STARS FROM Regina K. (Yelp)


"I love this place and it is one of the best acupuncture treatments I got. I've been to a lot of acupuncture places in Asia and around the world, and I had one of the most amazing experience. I have severe back and neck pain and I visit here whenever I have time. The price is unbelievable reasonable compared to other places and massage is included as well, which I have never seen a complimentary massage in other acupuncture place! The doctor gives the most suitable treatment for me every time; I get very strong level of acupuncture and never had any treatment that really caught my pain like this place. I highly recommend! I would be surprised to find an acupuncture place with this quality in such reasonable price."

"I decided to go to Dr. Lee when my menopause symptoms of hot flashes and night sweats were out of control. After my first visit, my symptoms improved by 80% and are now almost completely gone. My sleep has improved and my quality of life has returned. I highly recommend Dr. Lee, not only as an acupuncturist but as a healer as well!"

My energy has been restored and the road to my recovery is clear. The only choice in acupuncture is Dr. Lee and his wonderful team."

"They are very friendly and have good skills. I usually had chiropractic therapy for my wrist and back pain, but it worsen my problem. Even I got new neck problem after I had the therapy.

"I had to go see Dr. Lee because of my knee pain. Right after the first treatment, I felt much better and comfortable. My knee pain was almost gone, and I felt much more energetic. I am intending to go for another session soon. Thank you Dr. Lee!" 

--5 STARS FROM Young K. (Yelp) 

"I was experiencing a lot of stress about ten months ago from which I began hearing a pounding noise in my left ear. I met Dr. Lee to discuss my condition and he prescribed me Oriental herbal medicine which comes in packets to drink from every day. This, along with other advice he provided, significantly reduce that noise in my ear. I am continuing to receive diagnosis and treatment from him. I am so grateful to Dr. Lee who is a great listener, sympathetic, and truly cares about your needs. I highly suggest him for anyone experiencing pain and wants quality service that works. Thank you Dr. Lee!"

"Astonishingly friendly staff coupled with a high standard practice. Noticeable difference after 2 sessions. I highly recommend to anyone pursuing well-being."



"I was suffering from chronic migraine for a few years. I’ve done everything I could but could not find any effective treatments besides painkillers. Last week I got this severe headache again together with uncomfortable eyes. Even painkillers did not help. I was so desperate and miserable, so I decided to try acupuncture for the first time. It turned out to be a miracle. Dr Lee and his staff were very nice and explained the root cause of the headache and uncomfortable eyes from Chinese medicine’s perspective. After the treatment, I felt immediate relief on my left side head and the pain on the right side was gone in two hours. I would recommend Dr Lee to anyone who is suffering from migraine!"



"Hands down not only the best acupuncturist in the city but one of the best Dr.s I have ever been to. I work in the fitness industry and am anavid athlete. For about 6 months I was dealing with a hip flexor strain and tried physical therapy multiple times with few results. After just 4 sessions With Dr. Lee my hips as well as the rest of my body feel better than ever."



"The best acupuncturist I have been to in New York. Dr Lee was so incredibly thorough in his treatment. He did both front and back side and gave me many needles. After, he did cupping and analyzed the marks. He told me that I have 4 marks that are most pronounced which coincide with my stomach and liver - the reason for my headache and insomnia. Afterwards, he gave me a large tea to help. Later, he shot a text to tell me how I should follow up to ensure that the treatment is effective. I have never been to an acupuncturist that has expressed such concern for my well-being and took the time to ensure that my session was as effective as possible. I will be back soon!"



"It was a great experience. Very clean facility and friendly staff. Would recommend!"



"Amazing experience. The acupressure massage zoomed in on and loosened areas. I have been trying to heal with a lot of PT. The cupping was an incredible experience. Looking forward to seeing continued benefits."
