I am interested in hearing feedback about experiences with Dr.
Lifang Liang in San Francisco. I am thinking about seeing her for
infertility and I can't find much about her in the archives. Thanks!
I had an overall good experience with Dr. Liang, although my
pregnancy was achieved via donor egg following two years of
trying to overcome the effects of my age with other CM
practitioners. she is extremely knowledgeable and experienced as
well as motivated, gentle, committed, and positive. she is
unusual in that she is comfortable coordinating both Eastern and
Western approaches to infertility if you are also working with
Western doctors (she recently wrote a book to help bridge that
gap and shared copies with the local Western clinics). although
very busy she always made time for me and her student assistants
were overall quite competent. the few minuses I have to report
include her memory being rather sketchy at times (she sees so
many patients) and her English as well. this was not a big
problem however. the herbs she uses are powdered for mixing with
water and therefore easier to deal with than whole herbs but more
effective than pills once you get used to them. good luck!
I think Dr. Liang is brilliant. I credit her with the birth of my son. At age 37, I
was told that my FSH was so high I probably couldn't get pregnant. I was single at the
time, but decided I would try anyway. I went to Angela Wu for three months, and then
tried IVF, no luck. Fast forward three years, and age 40 (no longer single), I went to
Dr. Liang, she didn't promise me anything, but I got pregnant naturally 4 months later.
I don't know if this common, but she told me that it had happened with several other of
her patients. She was an OB/GYN in China, and as I wrote earlier, I think she's
brilliant. I took the herbs despite my worries, and I feel like they helped. My son is
quite healthy. She is fairly straight forward, and there isn't a lot of complicated
stuff like with Dr. Angela Wu (who also is quite helpful for a lot of women), I love the
book ''The Infertility Cure'' by ? Dr. Liang wrote a book, but I think it's more for
other Docs. Grateful patient
Hello I saw Lifang Liang when I was trying to conceive -- I had one prior miscarriage and
was 42. I received acupuncture and herbs for a few months and then became pregnant with
my twins. I saw her for a little while while I was pregnant and then couldn't really
contain the long trips to SF and herbs. I'll never know what hand she did play in my
ability to hold the pregnancy but I am glad I went to her and trusted her knowledge (she
was a GYN in China for 25 years). She doesn't have the softest bedside manner however
but seemed caring, skilled and with an excellent track record.
