I have worked with Renchi Zhang between 1993 and 1996. During this time he was referred patients that were very difficult cases in terms of chronic neurogenic pain, neuropathic pain, chronic cervical and lumbar disorders, and chronic pain of all types. Many of the patients had been to multiple practitioners of standard western medicine techniques and still had disabling levels of pain and the majority of the cases responded well to Renchi’s techniques. He had good results in 65%, excellent results in 15%, fair results in 15% and no change in 5%.
He has very detailed knowledge of oriental medicine and acupuncture. He is very successful in relieving acute exacerbations of chronic pain. Overall, he has excellent performance in his field.

I have been a patient of Renchi Zhang for over 10 years. He has been very helpful in treating me a large variety of problems, including psoriasis on my leg and keeps it under control.
I am very impressed with his huge medical knowledge. Because he was a M.D. in China, he understands how to look at medical problems with the knowledge of both East and West and can do a well rounded job treating with Chinese Medicine.
I would recommend this fine Chinese Medicine Doctor to everyone.

I have been seeing Renchi Zhang since 07/17/2001. The primary reason for treatment has been for severe Irritable Bowel Syndromes; however he has also treated me for menopause syndromes, sinusitis, TMJ, sleep problems and arthritis.
I currently see him every three weeks. I travel an hour and forty five minutes each way to this appointment. I have not had any insurance coverage, all the treatment has been paid for by me.
I consider Mr. Zhnag very personable and knowledgeable. I believe his acupuncture treatment to be the best in the state. I highly recommended him.
I have been a patient of DR Renchi Zhang since 2005 for arthritis pain in knees.
Dr Zhang’s treatment over the years have kept me comfortable pain-wise, mentally positive, and out of both the wheel-chair and the operation to replace both knees.
Surprise added bonuses were the disappearance of my asthma, and improvement in my high blood pressure and some edema of my ankles.
