I have been suffering from hypertension for more than 15 years. I have taken different kinds of medicine, my blood pressure is up and down and never gets controlled. I also suffer a lot of side effects from the medication, such as impotence, fatigue, insomnia, etc. Since I started seeing Dr. Yang, my blood pressure is very good, my impotence is gone, and I have much more energy. Dr. Yang really helps me a lot.
