Former vice president at Virginia Tech, and vice president of the University of Maryland since 2020, Dr. Patty Perillo shared her experiences with Doctor Joy Yang

Hi, my name is Dr. Dr. Patty Perillo and I was the former vice president for student affairs at Virginia Tech and I'm really excited and honored to tell you about Dr. joy yang. I have been a patient of hers for some time and it was important for me to meet with her and spend time with her. Partly for my own health and well-being, but certainly because I continue to advocate for my students and my faculty and staff that they have to take care of themselves in order to be well, and I wanted to role model that and engage in that practice. I initially came to her because I hurt my knee and I was in a lot of pain. But after spending time with her, and I leaving here much healthier than with just a fixed knee. She not only helped me understand the symptoms of the pain, but the source of the pain. She not only treated me physically, but in her practice she helps treat me and others physically, emotionally, spiritually! Because she has a integrated approach that really looks at the whole person, not just the person's symptoms, but the totality of that person's experience. She is a competent and well-trained doctor. She learned at one of the best medical centers (TCM Universities), medical hospitals in China. And she also studied here at Virginia Tech for some time. but not only is she cognitively intellectually brilliant, she is intuitively connected to people and nature, she spiritually connected as well. so as a result, she is a healer, she heals people from the inside out! More importantly for me, she helps to teach people how to heal themselves. She's got this beautiful model of health and well-being which is important to me. My PhD is in public and community health and so I've studied this for a long time myself. and so I studied her work. and so she helps people move from places of pain and sickness to the places of health, and then once one gets healthier, she helps you move to a place of greater well-being! So I came to her some time ago feeling sick and hurt, and I'm leaving my time with her feeling well more connected emotionally, spiritually, and physically! So if you are committed to your own health and well-being I encourage you to come visit her here in the corporate Research Center on the outskirts of Virginia Tech's campus. She is an extraordinary human being, a brilliant doctor and a terrific healer!!!

  • “I am grateful to Joy Yang for bringing me back to life.” - Grigory Loffe 

  • “Within the first week, I knew this was one of the best decisions I had ever made.” - Elizabeth Z. 

​     Highly skilled 

  • “She's not just an acupuncturist, she's a trained and well practiced medical doctor (acupuncture is just one of her healing methods). The level of training a Chinese MD undergoes compared to someone studying in America is vastly different (3 years compared to 8+).” - Patrick Ward

  • “She is a great listener and can figure out what your problems are in the blink of an eye.” - Caitlin Capone 


  • “By the time I located Dr. Yang and her EHE Clinic, I was already more than skeptical in regard to potential non-surgical help. Yet, I decided to try again out of sheer desperation but also because unlike that Virginia Tech professor, Dr. Joy Yang graduated from the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China, one of top four schools of that type in China. Reliable and certified training, talent, and dedication are important in every area of human endeavor. Joy Yang is an embodiment of all those and my trust in her and her methods of treatment is rock-solid.” - Grigory Loffe 

  • “Few TCM doctors I knew have mastered the advanced art of pulse diagnosis and tongue diagnosis which are critical for treatment. She is also very sophisticated in applying many other natural therapies; this includes moxibustion, cupping, tui-na, and cutting edge devices.” - Elizabeth Z.


  • “She possesses contagious enthusiasm that rubs off on you and is conducive to the desired outcome almost to the same degree as her knowledge, prowess, and manual dexterity. She reads your body and projects confidence and you began to feel confident, too. Joy’s demeanor radiates joy.” - Grigory Loffe 


       Pain relief 

  • “I have suffered from intermittent trigeminal neuralgia for years. The medicine made me dizzy…. After one treatment the pain was gone.” - Marilyn Altizer 

  • “It’s amazing! The pain is completely gone!  I had shin splints for four months, and I tried everything with no results before... It took three weeks for the pain to totally disappear... Now I’m continuing to see Dr. Yang for overall wellness.”  M.H.

  • “I had almost given up. I was skeptical - I had been to so many doctors - BUT, on my 3rd visit here, Dr Yang found the relief to my pain and I actually had NO pain for over 3 hours after that session!!!” Cre Hartenstein

  • “I initially got immediate relief from the acupuncture… From my very first visit I felt better.” - Patrick Ward 

  • “My pain and balance has been restored and I have improved tremendously” - Michael 

  • “Joy impressed me the very first time I came to see her. I began to feel better after the second visit. Tangible improvement was nothing short of a miracle, as nothing had helped before. ” - Griggory Loffe 

       Teaching Practices 


  • “Joy Yang also teaches you what you can do at home to expedite your healing. No other acupuncturist has ever done this for me either. The techniques are relaxing and have become a major highlight of my day.” - Patrick Ward


  •  “I was an osteopathic medical student, and attended a seminar in which she gave us demonstrations about acupressure points (it was really, really cool!). She also talked about different aspects of Traditional Chinese Medicine, modalities used, and was very generous about answering our questions and sharing some of her knowledge with us.” - Jenni Li 


  • “She coached me on diet and nutrition and ways to manage my stress level. You will get way more than a typical acupuncturist's office at EHE clinic. This is a place where you can count on for true healing.” - Elizabeth Z. 


  • “The herbs she prescribes are crushed dried herbs that have a mildly sweet taste (almost like plain bone broth), and are not hard to drink nor will they likely give you any side effects. Every other acupuncturist I have ever gone to has just given me little black pills packaged in a factory, which never felt that effective.” - Patrick Ward


I'm a retired New York City firefighter, I did respond to the Trade Center on 9/11 and I just received treatment from Dr. Joy Young.  

I've had many treatments in New York, and this is probably the two best treatments I've had!!!
