I have been under Dr. Landon’s care since October, 2016. In that time, his acupuncture skill and nutritional advice have helped me combat sleep issues, stress and anxiety attacks and to lose 90 pound...s. Yes, it has been over a year, but his concern and support never faltered, even when I was the most hard on myself. Dr. Landon taught me to think differently, and therefore, to act differently. I can truthfully say – without any exaggeration - he and acupuncture have changed my life.

As has Dr. Zhou. Even as intern at Care Wellness Center in Margate, Florida, Dr. Zhou exhibited the same compassion and kindness demonstrated by Dr. Landon. Now a TCM doctor on staff, Dr. Zhou brings her unique skill set to an already well established acupuncture center. Dr. Zhou has augmented my knowledge of TCM – let alone shared some incredibly delicious recipes!

Both Dr. Landon and Dr. Zhou make you feel as if you are being treated by true “health-care” professionals rather than many doctors who are “disease-care” driven in their approach. Both are approachable, understanding and caring. They have my highest recommendation – and my deepest thanks.
