Our most common chief complaint is chronic pain. These complaints are often resolved (to the surprise of patients) during the first session.

However, we recommend followup sessions to continue with pain relief. Commonly, it takes around 10 to 12 visits before full symptom relief is achieved.

The office also sees patients for fertility treatments, digestion complaints, smoking cessation, weight loss, and even the general annual check-up.

Also, if patients are interested in saving some money, auricular acupressure sessions can be performed for as little as $10.00.

First, a personal story.
In the summer of 2017, during my first year in New Orleans, I developed a hacking dry cough. It wouldn't go away, and inevitably, the cough started taking a toll on my health. My sleep quality suffered greatly, I was fatigued, exhausted, and the incessant coughing affected my productivity and social life.

Cough medicine, allergy medication, and sleep medication did very little to assuage my miserable condition. At this time, I've been friends with Dr Lihua Zhang for a year, and she noticed that I had looked miserable for three months. I told her of my plight, and she said "No problem!" She taped two tiny needles into me and the coughing stopped. And for the first time in three awful months, I slept like a baby that night.

"What sorcery is this?" I had wondered. This simple treatment when medicine had failed, made me ask some important questions, and led me down the road to learning more about Acupuncture. In fact, I work for Dr Zhang today.

Dr. Zhang was born in Nanjing, China, and obtained her US medical degree at the University of South Florida. Her residency was at University of South Florida in Tampa, and University of Florida in Gainesville.

She originally obtained her MD in Nanjing Medical University in China. She obtained her Chinese residency at the ICU in Jiangsu Province People's Hospital, and has practiced medicine since 1984.

Dr. Zhang currently works at East Jefferson General Hospital as an Anesthesiologist, and practices Acupuncture and General Medicine in Metairie and the West Bank. She holds certifications for Botox and Dermal Filler injections, as well as the certificate to recommend Medical Marijuana in Louisiana.
