Unprofessional & Disappointing, No Integrity – I had some fatigue issues and was looking online for an herbalist in my local area that could help me. I saw that Frank Vogt received great reviews and set went to see him. He charged me $125 for an hour session in which he asked me about the problems I was having and he physically analyzed me by testing my pulse and looking at my tongue. I told him that I did not want to try the acupuncture but to experiment with the herbs instead. he said he could help me. Frank said that he would think about what combination of herbs might work best and would notify the Chinese pharmacy who would notify me. I saw Frank on a Monday. When Thursday arrived and I received no call from the pharmacy, I contacted Frank who informed me that he would contact the Pharmacy. I found this unprofessional since I had seen Frank on Monday and would have expected action to be taken sooner. I took the prescribed herbs for 10 days and saw no significant change in my physical well being. I went back to Frank for a second appointment which last a half hour ($63). During this time Frank held my wrist (20 minutes) and felt my pulse and took another look at my tongue (5 minutes). I thought it was weird that he just sat there with his eyes closed feeling my pulse for 20 minutes. At the end of the session he did not urge me to see him in 10 days as he had done after the first session but said that I could make appointment whenever I wanted to see him again. Frank never followed up and I never received a call from the pharmacy. I found this very disappointing and unprofessional. I basically got shafted! I am not even sure that he even knew what to do. He is a very young man (under 35) and may not be that experienced as an herbalist. If a service provider charges you a fee, he should have the integrity to provide the service that he promised. I did not call him back to ask him about the herbs as I had done the first time since it his job as a professional to contact me. Since I did not receive a recommendation from someone who had seen personally seen Frank but only judged from online reviews, I can only blame myself for wasting my time and money. I am always suspicious of the authenticity of the reviews when all of the reviews have a 5 star rating and where multiple entries are made on the same day. I can only convey the facts as they happened and leave it to other people to draw their own conclusions. I know I have drawn mine!!
After 7 months of unsuccessful fertility treatments a friend recommended trying acupuncture. Looking for ways to help get through the stressful process I eagerly called Frank. After one session with him I knew I had come to the right place. Frank creates a soothing environment that sets the tone for deep relaxation. He has a strong sense of understanding and takes the time to listen to how you?re feeling, physically and emotionally, so that the session is as productive as possible. Through the use of visualization exercises, herbal teas that were customized with fertility in mind, and of course the acupuncture, I credit Frank for helping my husband and I finally achieve conception. I couldn?t think of a better way to start a healthy pregnancy and I look forward to continuing working with Frank throughout the next 9 months and beyond.

I feel very lucky to have found Frank Vogt as an acupuncturist. He helps me every time I see him. He is a great combination of knowledgeable, professional, and genuine. He listens intently and has a wonderful gentle manner. Besides knowing Frank as a patient since 2007, I am a midwife and have referred many patients to him with the patients also being happy with his care. I am a big fan.
Park Slope Acupuncture & Herbs – Frank is an excellent acupuncturist. I have been to several acupuncturists in Oregon, Illinois and New York, and consider Frank to be one of the best. I have always received good and effective treatments. He is professional yet sensitive and creates a very comfortable environment for healing. I would highly recommend Frank to anyone who is seeking acupuncture!
Frank is a gift to anyone who encounters him. I cannot recommend him enough. – Frank is an incredibly gifted being who is passionate about helping others. He understands the pain and goes right to it. In our sessions, Frank has shown immense compassion and patience. He has helped me deal with life long issues and has cured my back from a long time injury. He has taught me more about myself than I would ever on my own. He is a gift to anyone who encounters him. I cannot recommend him enough.
When I first started acupuncture, I had been experiencing back pain for as long as I could remember. I had tried just about every traditional remedy out there, to no avail. Remarkably, over the course of my acupuncture treatment, I found not only lasting pain relief, but an entirely new perspective on wellness that will stick with me forever. With Frank's guidance, I was impacted by the simple yet powerful idea of the
connectedness between emotional/spiritual experience and physical health. Frank's practice acknowledges this connection, resulting in the type of healing that seems to target not only the specific problem area, but the whole person. Physically speaking, I feel better than ever. But almost
more importantly, through this treatment I have experienced healing in a larger sense. Frank's instinctive methodology, open-heartedness and patient attentiveness have brought peace to both body and spirit.
My husband and I endorse Frank Without reserve. – Both my husband and I have been going to Frank for over six months. I went for help with the side-effects of going through treatment for breast cancer, and my husband went for help healing from a traumatic brain injury. Both of us have been very satisfied with the results. I have to admit the idea of needles, no matter how small, was not a thrill for me. However Frank made it a really comfortable and easy process. He explained what he was doing and why (he is very knowledgeable in his field) and his professional, yet kind manner made the entire experience a good one. As to it?s effectiveness for me, well, my oncologist said that she has never seen someone go through chemotherapy so well (read: very little side effects). I believe I did a variety of things to help make that happen, and acupuncture was a core part of that plan. Carlos went twice a week for about three months to help him with his neural fatigue, memory problems and back pain. Utilizing a combination of acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbs, Frank?s treatment plan for Carlos was quite effective in helping Carlos?s brain to heal. Carlos wholeheartedly credits Frank as part of the reason that his brain has healed so fast and so effectively; to such an extent that even Carlos?s neurologists are surprised. The end result is that both my husband and I endorse Frank without reserve.
You have no choice but to feel better. Everyone should be so lucky to have Frank in thier life. – it all started with me throwing my back out. i went to frank hoping he'd relieve some of the pressure on my lower back, so i could at least stand up straight. i was met with more than just a guy with a couple of needles and come tricks up his sleeve. frank is one of the most genuine and thoughtful people i've been lucky enough to meet. shortly after my back began to heal i found out i was pregnant. immediately i panicked thinking the back pains would return and i would be debilitated during and after my pregnancy.
but it didn't happen. in fact, a year plus later i am still without back pains. i continued to see frank on a regular basis getting treatments for my back and pregnancy. frank took the power of acupuncture and healing to a new level. he has so much passion for his work which is evident during the sessions, that you have no choice but to feel better and stronger. because of his commitment to his work and
to my well being, i asked frank to treat me during my labor. it was an incredibly private moment in my life, but it felt right to have frank treat me before i left for the hospital. i am so grateful for frank's ability
as an acupuncturist and healer. everyone should be so lucky to have a frank in their life.
Frank and his work with my children – I had my children see Frank for sleeping problems. He was not only sweet, kind and gentle with the kids but seemed to genuinely care about them. After 3 or 4 sessions and a short regimen of herbs my son was healed. I am now in the process of taking my daughter to Frank for the same problem and I am sure we will have a positive outcome as I see that Frank has a gift of healing. Thanks for everything Frank.
Highly advise to see Frank! – Since receiving treatment, I have never felt better. My energy level is the best it has ever been and my attitude is more positive. My asthma symptoms are finally under control and I feel my immunity is stronger. While most people around me are getting sick with colds and viruses, I remain amazingly strong and healthy. I used to always be the one to get sick, and now people are asking me how I am staying so healthy. It is refreshing to be under the care of a professional who really helps me and who cares about my health and well being physically and emotionally. Thanks, Frank!
