      I have been seeing Terry Chen for the last five mohnts and fond him to be a person with passion for healing the mind body and spirit. He was one of the first to identify my aliment which turned out to be ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and researched the best approach to attack this devastating disease. Unlike most health care practitioners I have seen he has been honest, caring, and I sincerely trust his judgement. He gets my highest recommendation!
