Lee Huang, who founded Able Acupuncture in 2002, is a nationally board-certified acupuncturist who brings to her patients a comprehensive background in both Western and Eastern medicine. She started her career as an ophthalmologist and eye surgeon in China, and spent more than ten years practicing at the Red Cross Hospital—where she earned the titled of Doctor of Excellence—before moving to the United States with her family in 1995. Along with her passion for eye health, she had a deep interest in the holistic emphasis of traditional Chinese Medicine after watching how it aided in her grandmothers’ stroke rehabilitation and her husband’s recovery from tendonitis. She followed her passion and earned a Masters of Science degree in Acupuncture from Bastyr University in 1999.
Lee is devoted to helping patients suffering from a broad range of pain-related health issues, as well as circulatory, respiratory, gynecological, gastrointestinal, addictions and emotional health issues. She is also passionate about helping patients suffering from severe eye conditions and has spent the past ten years seeking out specialized training in TCM Ophthalmology.
She returned to China in 2007 to study under Professor Fang Su, a TCM specialist in eye conditions, where she gained hands-on training treating eye conditions ranging from dry eyes and glaucoma to age-related macular degeneration, vitreous opacities, and retinopathy. She then trained with renowned eye acupuncturist Hoy Ping Yee Chan, who used periocular acupuncture to treat eye diseases, and has also received hands-on training in micro acupuncture and electro-acupuncture from eye acupuncturists Lizbeth Ryan and Andy Rosenfarb to treat Retinitis Pigmentosa and other degenerative eye diseases.
