Patient Testimony

I highly recommend anybody who cannot find relief or answers from their regular doctors to go see her…Dr. Alice Shi has the answers!

I have had a white coating on my tongue for the past 15 years from Mono and Chronic fatigue resulting in my spleen being enlarged and compromised. After just 4 weeks of acupuncture and drinking her herbal teas, the white coating is finally gone and my spleen does not hurt! I have been to two other acupuncturists and Dr. Shi is by far the best one! Her needles do not hurt because of her 20 years of knowledge and experience. Her unique ability to mix special herbal tea just for me did what no one else could! I am so impressed and thankful to Dr. Shi for helping me one my road to total recovery!

Dear Doctor Shi,

I just wanted to say thank you. Six month ago if someone had told me I would finally be free of pain from a digestive problem and from a rash that was only getting worse as time went on I would not have believed it. But it is true!

I am now free of the rash that made my skin open and bleeds and no more swelling and bloating that made one dread mealtime.

It seems that over the years the medicine the doctors had given me was only making me feel worse and I was beginning to experience the side effects as well. It’s clear it was just covering the condition and I needed a cure. I knew I had to search to find something better.

I had heard about Acupuncture and all its benefits and I was ready to try something different. That’s when I heard about Dr. Shi, whom had an excellent reputation with R.I.A.S. not only for her wisdom and knowledge of holistic medicine but also for her kind and gentle manners to all patients. I immediately felt hopeful again.

The Acupuncture worked wonder for me along with the special herbal tea Dr. Shi made to settle my stomach. Best of all, the custom crème completely healed my open cuts as well as taking away the painful itch that was keeping me awake at night. I am so pleased everything worked out. I’m just so thrilled with the results that I have been telling all my friends about Dr. Shi. How she was able to help me when no on else could. I feel fortunate to have found her and to have her as my doctor. Thank you again.

Dear Dr. Shi,

I am writing to thank you for the wonderful experience that I have had as your patient for the last 8 months. After a lifetime of suffering from eczema, I decided to explore treatment through acupuncture and herbal supplements. I contacted the Rhode Island Acupuncture Society, and they referred me to your office.

I have suffered from eczema since birth. I have visited almost every dermatologist in the state, only to be given yet another steroid cream that did nothing to alleviate my problem. Every antihistamine on the market today was also prescribed, still to no avail. I was very frustrated and unsatisfied with the treatments suggested to me. I have spend thousands of dollars on office visits, pills, and ointments that did not work.

After a few weeks of treatment in your office, I began to see results. They constant itch that I had lived with all my life began to subside, and the cuts on my hands began to heal. Your custom- made herbal medicines targeted my problem exactly. When combined with acupuncture, the results were beyond my expectations. I have never been so happy with any treatment that I have received. I did not think it was possible to alleviate my eczema with such precision. After only 8 months, my skin looks much better, and I am not plagued by constant itch.

In addition, your demeanor with your patients is warm and friendly. I felt completely at ease in your care. You established a personal relationship with your clients, and take pride in observing their progress. You are encouraging and patient, and always offer a smile.

I cannot thank you enough for finally providing me with relief from my condition. I have resigned myself to a lifetime of frustration and suffering. What a wonderful and thoroughly satisfying experience!
