George was a delight to work with and saved me from excrutiating and debilitating sciatica pain during my third trimester of pregnancy.  I could barely walk and had to use a cane.  I couldn't carry or lift my two-year old daughter.  Upon meeting George, he assured me that he could help me.  We started accupuncture and I immediately saw some relief.  Over the next couple of weeks, I got better and better, ditched the cane, and was able to resume caring for my daughter.  Apparently, my baby was breech and pressing down on a nerve.  George explained to me how to use moxa sticks at home to stimulate an accupuncture point in my pinky toes - to help the baby turn.  After 8 nights, I could feel that the baby had moved, a fact that was confirmed at my next ultrasound.  I credit George not only with relieving my terrible back pain, but also with helping turn my breech baby and thereby allowing me to have a vaginal delivery instead of a c-section.  Thank you so much!

I first met with George about three years ago to get help with my diet.  George was thorough in collecting information about my health and diet to make specific recommendations for me. Since then, I have continued to work with George on improving my diet as well as seeing him for acupuncture.

I find George to be quite knowledgeable about Chinese medicine, general nutrition and acupuncture. I appreciate his blended eastern/western style of nutrition and find his recommendations to be very helpful in treating me.

More recently I have met with George following a diagnosis of colon cancer.  He has been an integral part of my healing (as has Joy Mandler). George has guided me with nutrition counseling as I continue to heal post surgery – which resulted in changes in my digestion.  I also meet with George for acupuncture to help alleviate tension and manage side effects from chemotherapy.  I appreciate having one provider for both nutrition and acupuncture and believe his vast knowledge make my treatment that much more substantial.

I always leave the office feeling relaxed and renewed. Following appointments, George e-mails notes from the meeting and follows up after appointments to check on the status of my symptoms.  George is very diligent and does everything possible to show he is 100% invested in my health and well-being.  I feel so fortunate to have found George and grateful that he is by my side as I continue to heal.

I chose George Mandler as my nutritionist after my wife recommended him after having a great acupuncture experience with him during her pregnancy. My goal entering my work with George was to improve my energy level, alleviate some chronic conditions I felt were food-related, and to just start eating better. George delivered on all these goals and then some. His approach to improving my diet was tailored specifically to me, starting with a comprehensive blood test that revealed all sorts of sensitivities that I have to certain foods. Much to my delight, I am now eating foods that nourish me while avoiding foods that actually do harm, even if those foods are generally considered “healthy” ones. Such a comprehensive and individualized approach appeals to me and it is just the kind of approach you will get with George. He sits with you, you never feel rushed, and he puts all his know-how into improving the issues you are dealing with. After several months under his care, I have experienced far fewer occurrences of my chronic health issues and my energy has improved ten-fold.  I recommend him whole-heartedly if you are serious about improving the thing that impacts your health and life so much, your diet.

I can't even express in words how thankful I am to have found George Mandler. In such a short period of time, my life has changed beyond belief. I started to see George a month and a half ago for fertility concerns. From the very first appointment, he was very attentive to my concerns and addressed them with a systematic, thorough and holistic approach. We first looked at the foods I was eating, I took a food sensitivity test and he helped me put together a plan based on the results of the test.  I struggled for years with binge eating and intense sugar and refined carbohydrate cravings. I was overweight and constantly felt lethargic. I had low morale and low self-esteem...honestly  I felt hopeless in this area. After 10 days of following his recommendations I began to see amazing changes emotionally and physically. Today I feel great! My cravings have completely disappeared and I don't binge eat anymore. I have great energy and feel excellent all around!  Along with dietary changes, I also get acupuncture treatments to address my fertility concerns. George is awesome! He has a very systematic approach to healing. He is exceptionally smart and a genuine and sincere practitioner. I always come out of my appointments feeling great and relaxed. I am thankful to have George as my practitioner!

I am so grateful beyond measure to have been treated by George Mandler.     I have suffered for many years with chronic digestive issues, extreme constipation, and extreme fatigue that completely interfered with my life and my functioning.   Over the last several years I had seen many specialists and had every  test imaginable, all of which came back within normal limits.    I was offered medications for IBS, all of which had multiple side effects and didnt fit my situation so I chose not to try them.   I had also tried multiple natural remedies and diet modifications to try to feel better and heal to no avail.  

When I came to see George I was on an extremely high dose of Miralax as well as other herbal laxatives and had extreme fatigue and weakness.  I felt like I was dragging myself through my days.  Coming to see George was my last try before resigning myself to feeling that way or taking medication which did not in any way seem like the right answer nor did it address the cause of my symptoms.   George did a thorough review and evaluation of my health and history.  He ordered a very specialized comprehensive food sensitivity test called MRT.   The results showed that I have several food sensitivities.  George tailored a diet for me based on the results that consisted of eating the foods that the test showed I was nonreactive.  Within two weeks of following the diet he gave me, I was symptom free, off all Miralax and laxatives, and had a ton of energy and still do.  The diet is very individualized and has phases designed to heal the gut and food sensitivities and prevent further sensitivities.  George is so knowledgable about all aspects of nutrition and how particular foods affect your body.  He was so helpful with making the diet work and providing counseling and suggestions for it.  I couldnt be more grateful for his expertise and all he has done to help me.   His multiple expertise and background in Chinese medicine, acupuncture and clinical nutrition all come together when he evaluates and treats you.  His approach was comprehensive, holistic and individualized to my symptoms.   He is very systematic in his approach as he addressed my food sensitivities first and then also is addressing a genetic methylation MTHFR issue and adrenal issue he identified as well.    He is extraordinarily smart and  a very kind and sincere practitioner.   Because of his expertise and treatment, I have regained my health and in turn life.   I am truly blessed and couldnt be more grateful  to George.  Getting better has been life changing for me and my family.

I suffered so long with fibromyalgia that I forgot what it was like to be normal.  It started in 2001 after my first child and got progressively worse.  I tried all sorts of treatments from my doctor and alternative treatments including herbs, chiropractic, diet changes,  and nothing gave me lasting results.  

A friend told me about the food sensitivity blood testing that she did with George so I gave him a call and went in for a free 15 minute consult.   George suggested I do a blood test to use as a guide for an elimination diet.  I was very skeptical at first but after doing more research about this test and reading about others with fibromyalgia I decided to give it a go.   What was there to lose as it wasn't that expensive and George was covered under my health insurance.   

What happened in the next 2 weeks I would say was a miracle!   By the second week I was about 90% better.   All of my pain symptoms were about vanished.  I now understand how food can cause so many problems in my body and now have a better understanding of what foods I have problems with and which ones are OK.

I am so so grateful to be working George as he has been the best doctor I've ever worked with as he guides me to correct other imbalances with supplements and herbs.
