This review is long overdue. I have been seeing Dorothy for almost a year and a half now and she has helped me with my hormonal issues, mainly PCOS and irregular/ painful periods IMMENSELY. Each time I visit I leave feeling like a new person. Dorothy is authentic, knowledgeable and one of the sweetest people you will meet! She makes herself accessible via text and email for questions/concerns and truly cares about the well being of her patients. This shows not only in her approach but by her dedicated list of clients. Her commitment to staying up-to-date with research and the newest techniques keeps her at the top of her game. If you are looking for a practitioner who will take the time to get to know you and your concerns/symptoms, this place is for you.
After suffering from dysmenorrhea (painful and difficult periods) for almost 20 years, I was determined to get to the root of the problem. For years doctors prescribed me birth control pills which somewhat helped but didn’t address the source of the issue. After my mom died of cancer, onset by hormone therapy, I was understandably weary of continuing a hormone regimen of birth control.
I switched to a holistic gynecologist who discovered I had endometrial polyps (an overgrowth of the uterine lining due to low levels of progesterone). I didn’t want them surgically removed, like most women do; instead I opted for a natural approach. This is where Dr. Dorothy Wells came in; she was highly recommended by my gynecologist.
I went on a plant-based progesterone cream (all natural), practiced restorative yoga for the reproductive system, and went for weekly acupuncture with Dorothy for 3 months. She is very knowledgeable, nurturing and caring–just the kind of person you want when your health is concerned. When I went out of town one week, she messaged me to check in to see how I was feeling. She goes the extra mile.
I’m grateful to say that for the first time in my life–without surgery or a pill–I’ve now had 4 regular pain-free periods. People are always amazed by my story and it’s true. Become an active participant in your own healing. Seek the right people who will support you along the way. Thank you, Dorothy, for helping me heal!
Don is an incredible practitioner. I have been going for treatment for several years now and he is amazing. I even brought my mom to receive treatment. She was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis on both hips and knees. She was so painful that she could barely walk. She was told she would need surgery on all joints. That seemed a bit excessive to me so I decided to bring her to Don for treatment to at least get the pain under control and then consider the possibility of surgery. In two weeks she went from barely able to get out of bed to walking just using a cane. It was an incredible transformation all thanks to Don. I will always appreciate what he did for my mom and will be a loyal client for many years to come. If you have any health issues or just want to be overall healthier do yourself a favor and go see Don and at least get a consultation. It may change your life.
Don is the real deal! He is highly competent and very effective. It seems that he has eyes in his fingers as he is able to diagnose and treat many conditions with his unique combination of deep tissue and fascia manipulation followed by acupuncture. I have benefitted greatly from his treatments and recommend him enthusiastically.
Dorothy and Don are amazing. A few months ago I herniated two disks in my lower back and was visiting Miami Beach when I had a painful “flair up”. Don was able to re- arrange his schedule to quickly see me to help alleviate my pain. Don made me feel extremely comfortable and spent a great deal of time asking questions and learning about my back problem. I was impressed with his depth of knowledge about the body and what he could do help. On my first visit he focused on a combination of physical therapy and massage to help relax my back and relieve pain. On the second visit he used acupuncture and showed a variety of stretches and techniques to help keep my body in balance. Even though I was just visiting, Dorothy tried to arrange a yoga class for me to attend. Their attention to my well being was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend Holistic Primary care. Thanks Don and Dorothy!
I have been working with Dr. Dorothy Wells for the past six months and I have experienced significant progress towards my health goals. I was referred by a friend who highly recommended Dorothy and Holistic Primary Care. Dorothy’s acupuncture technique is gentle and her knowledge of Chinese herbs and medicine is vast. She takes the time to truly listen to my health concerns and always responds with a treatment that works. The process has taken some time (I had been suffering from several conditions for years), but it does work. The office is clean and quiet. There is always free street parking available outside of the building. They also have an impressive store of Chinese medicines and herbs available on-site. I highly recommend Dorothy and Holistic Primary Care.
Dorothy is excellent – highly recommend you book an appointment here! Thanks again!
Dr. Don Eisenmann is the best in town. He has been helping me with post surgical issues for years. My mother, an infectious disease physician, also refers many patients to Don citing his great success in helping me overcome substantial pain without having to resort to nasty yet traditional pharmaceutical therapy.
Don and Dorothy, his colleague, are professional and always lovely. The office setting is serene and easily accessible. Love these guys!
Amazing!! Love Dorothy & Don!
My husband and I have been coming to South Beach for the last four years to get away from the cold. I had the good fortune of finding Don at Holistic Primary Care last winter when I was looking for someone to treat my dermatitis. I am someone who has relied on complementary and alternative medicine for years and have been seen by practitioners and therapists in the US, Europe and Asia, and Don is one of the best. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who has acute and/or chronic pain. I love massages and try to get them whenever I can but Don’s neural muscular work is much more than just a feel-good massage and I find it very therapeutic. My husband, who has severe spinal stenosis, sees Don twice a week to help loosen up his lower back. He’s always been the skeptical one and needed some urging from me but now he says that he knows Don is helping him. I also appreciate Don’s ethics, kindness, humility and dedication to his profession. Wish we could take him home with us when we return to Virginia in the spring.
