I saw an excellent acupuncturist in the Oakville area. His name is Dr. Mort Neek. I noticed that he also has an office in Woodbridge. He is specialized in Infertility and IVF or IUI acupuncture, and practices traditional Chinese medicine as well. When I had my infertility challenge I saw him and found him very approachable and knowledgeable. My acupuncture sessions were always excellent and herbs were not too bad either. He helped us concieve and his treatments worked well with our IVF plan. I have already recommended him to a couple of my friends and they have been happy too. Here is a link to his website just in case: http://www.tcmclineek.com Good luck...

I go to an AMAZING acupuncturist. His name is Sako... He specializes in creating a treatment plan that is based on your individual needs...
He is also a teacher at one of the Chinese Medicine/Acupunture Schools. He is warm and gentle. He knows how to approach infirtility and has been specializing in this area for some time now.

I attribute his work to helping conceive my DD a year ago and I will be seeing him again when I do my next cycle.

He works at Major Mackenzie and Bathurst. I would highly recommend him. http://www.richmondhilltcm.com/

Good Luck with your search and cycle

i saw amanda merenda in maple (keele and major mack area) and she helped me a lot. i liked that she really took the time to get to know me and understand my situation. this might sound bad, but she spoke perfect english (she was born here) which was a huge bonus for me becuase i know she understood everything i was communicating to her. i felt really comfortable with her. after 2 previous failed ivf attempts i know her treatments really made the difference for us. We now have a beautiful baby girl :)
