I've been a loyal client of Dr. Dan ( as I call him) for 5 Years. He was the first person to ever do Acupunture on my body. To be honest, he will be the only person to do Acupunture on me. He's kind, patient, professional, and incredibly well educated on the body and its kinesiology. As a dancer and fitness trainer, there is nothing more rewarding than to have someone treat your body right. Thank goodness I found him. He's freaking outstanding!
Dan Poreda is wonderful practitioner. The way he is able to directly target areas of discomfort, using both acupuncture and massage is extremely effective. I had intense pain from plantar fasciitis and now the pain is almost completely gone (from one session). I have tried many different types of treatments and this was by far the best. He also relieved a lot of tension in my back and neck. Next time I won't wait so long to go!
Dan is the best acupuncturist. I have tried acupuncture with many acupuncturists in both China and the US, and still, Dan is the best among them. I run a lot and sometimes don't stretch enough, so I always make appointments with Dan to keep myself away from injury while increasing my mileage. It has been really helpful every time I train for a marathon. I would recommend Dan to every athlete.

About me

Daniel Poreda is board certified and state licensed in acupuncture and Chinese herbology. He completed a 5 year masters program in Oriental Medicine at Touro College, Manhattan NYC. As an acupuncture intern at the Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn NYC, he treated patients in physical rehabilitation, labor and delivery, and oncology departments.
Post graduation, Dan traveled to Chengdu, China to continue his studies and deepen his clinical expertise at the Chengdu University of traditional Chinese Medicine. He completed rounds in the acupuncture departments and in herbal medicine departments for digestive disorders, diabetes, neurology, oncology, gynecology, cardiology, respiratory disease, and dermatology. The focus of his residency was with Dr. Zhang Zhi Wen, internationally recognized master Wen Bing practitioner; Wen Bing , ”warm disease”, is a specialty practice that tends to treat a range of upper respiratory illness and febrile (fever) disease. People would come to Dr. Zhang Zhi Wen for herbal prescriptions to treat conditions from the common cold to advanced pulmonary fibrosis. “Observing the practice of Dr. Zhang profoundly influenced my understanding and formulation of Chinese herbal medicine. I have adopted his approach for my patients in the United States.” Daniel also served as a guest lecturer for Chinese graduate students in a Chinese-English medical translation course.

I have gone for acupuncture and found pain relief but not as great as the treatment from Dan,,I find my pain alleviated and feel much better. Very professional!!
Dan is a fantastic practitioner. His office is welcoming and his presence is warm, calming, and professional. I have chronic lower back/hip pain and discomfort. I've seen doctors, physical therapy, medication... but nothing has provided sustainable relief. I've had 4 appointments with Dan so far and have had a very positive experience. He is attentive, attentive,knowledgable, gentle, and thoughtful. He has used several modalities: acupuncture, cupping, and massage- each has been extremely effective and I'm feeling much better. I am thrilled to have found him and I'll continue going. I would certainly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a skillful doctor!
Dan is a wonderful acupuncturist. I've been seeing him for the past 2 months and will eagerly continue to come for treatments. He has been able to treat a long-term, undiagnosed stomach ailment I've suffered that Western medicine doctors have neither diagnosed nor offered possible treatment options for. My condition is continually improving, faster than ever, as a result of his care and herbal remedies he's provided. He is gentle and skillful with the needle; I barely feel them for the most part. Also, he performs the Tui Na massage on my back and shoulders (which is a bit painful, but relieves tension and tends to improve my mood). Each time I come back, he asks how I'm feeling, about my symptoms, and articulates the underlying physical issues that could be behind my symptoms. Additionally, the office has a warm and relaxing ambience with herbal aromas and soft music :)
