I have been extremely pleased with the treatment I have been receiving from Alvaro. I never tried acupuncture before, but I am a believer now! Three months after a car accident, I was still having significant pain in my legs that was interfering with my functioning and quality of life. After only one acupuncture treatment, my pain level decreased remarkably. Alvaro is very calm, gentle and professional, and I recommend him highly. Thank you Alvaro: I can dance again!

I started using acupuncture a few months ago and I would definitely recommend. My health has improved incredibly and I have learned to know my body. What I like the most? It is to be able to receive treatment for different health concerns at the same time in a natural way. As well something that I especially like about Alvaro, it is how resourceful he is and always going that extra mile to help you. It is hard for me to relax, especially stop my mind from thinking about what I have to do next. However, this is the only way that I am able to relax and believe me I feel like a new person after my appointments.

As a long time migraine sufferer, it was suggested that I try acupuncture. I never believed in acupuncture but decided to give it a try. I was blessed enough to find Alvaro Toledo. I also had a knee problem but I had not mentioned it. I began acupuncture therapy and after about a month, began to realize my knee no longer had the pain when I walked!! My head felt relief as did my whole body. I like that Alvaro believes in treating the body as a whole. He makes his own herbal tinctures according to what he believes will benefit your body as opposed to giving a bunch of herbal supplement pills we never take. I have a great appreciation for acupuncture and Alvaro’s technique. Alvaro is a great acupuncturist as well as a person! I highly recommend him and his approach to healing with acupuncture and his herbal tinctures.

To be honest, like many people that grew up in America I have a certain reluctance towards alternative medicine. That reluctance is a little stronger with me because I work in the medical field. In fact, I manage doctors. Unfortunately, I had developed some issues that western medicine was having a hard time curing or even treating, so I felt it was time to explore some different options. With Acupuncture there comes some foreboding because of the needles. For me the issue wasn’t the needles, it was that I do not like feeling trapped, but after meeting with Alvaro and discussing my conditions in great detail I felt it was worth a shot even if I was going to experience some discomfort. As a skeptic, what I have found after several treatments is that it does work. You do have to have an open mind. It does take a little time and it may not work for everything or every problem, but I have definitely found some conditions lessened if not gone. I’ll admit that the first couple of treatments can be a little stressful, but that quickly passes. What has really impressed me is Alvaro’s thoroughness and diligence in trying to solve my issues. What also impresses me about acupuncture and herbal medicine is that is a natural approach and you are using your own body’s healing abilities.

I began seeing Doc over a month ago for severe migraines and pre-menopausal symptoms. I had never tried acupuncture before, as I was a little hesitant of the word “needle”. Please be assured it’s not as it seems (It’s the smallest needle ever ! ). Doc has worked wonders with my migraines as they have eased up tremendously, and I am able to relax more. Between the acupuncture, massage (amazing), and medical knowledge he has provided I am well on my way to a better life without migraines. My menopausal symptoms of hot-flashes, etc., have eased up, among other issues that I will not get into.. 🙂 by using the Chinese herbal meds that doc has to offer. Dr. Toledo provides a quiet, peaceful atmosphere that will place anyone at ease while you are there for treatment. If you are considering Acupuncture, I highly recommend Dr. Alvero Toledo.

I went to Dr Toledo for a wide range of health issues, some of my ailments were troublesome for me for years. Well I have been seeing Dr Toledo for almost a month now and as I saw immediate improvements, its amazing how my quality of life keeps improving. Dr Toledo’s knowledge is spot on and his bed side manner is second to none. His knowledge, professionalism, and genuine care is unbelievable. I drive from Orlando to Gainesville twice a week to see him. No matter the ailment, I highly recommend him as he has got a patient for life right here! I could go on and on… Thanks Doc for all you do!

Mr. Toledo has a vast array of knowledge and skills. He is empathetic, professional and thorough. I always leave feeling better than when I came, and I am confident he will be able to help me for many years to come. I have been receiving acupuncture since I was 18. I am almost 55. He is one of the top three Chinese medicine professionals I have ever received acupuncture from, and the other two were Chinese doctors! I highly recommend you to him. Any prospective patient is welcome to contact me for more information and insight.

Alvaro is amazing. Next to digestive and mental well-being support, Alvaro is helping me clear and break up nasty scar tissue from a dog bite. I wish I could post a before and now/after picture of the scar, it looks amazing!
I’ve seen a number of number of acupuncturists and everyone offers something a little different. Some practitioners may/will bombard you with very negative feedback about your health and the areas that need work, Alvaro will still let you know but not so much doom and gloom. Alvaro is very thorough with his intake and very present with his needling technique.
All in all, I am having a wonderful experience with Alvaro. Health and wellness is an unravelling so one can’t expect ‘perfect health’ to happen after one treatment. One shouldn’t expect ‘perfect health’ to be a goal, but rather a path. With that said, Alvaro has been very instrumental on my path of healthfulness and I highly recommend him!

Dr. Alvaro has always been compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable in caring for myself and my family. I would recommend him without reservation. We are particularly appreciative of his expertise in dealing with post-partum issues (mental and physical health), and alleviating GI issues concurrent with autism.

I have been seeing Alvaro on and off for the past year. After a devastating miscarriage I decided to resume weekly acupuncture sessions, which helped my body and mind heal. After only two months I became pregnant again, and I have continued treatment sessions. Week after week we focus on points that not only ensure a continued, healthy pregnancy but also helped more predominant pregnancy symptoms: nausea, constipation, fatigue, irritability, and most importantly, the anxiety that this pregnancy would have ended in miscarriage as well. Now 16 weeks pregnant, I feel replenished, strong and optimistic about having a daughter join us in May. I would recommend Alvaro to anyone that is wishing to get pregnant and be able to maintain a happy and healthy pregnancy.

I am new to Chinese medicine and Dr. Toledo is AWESOME!! I never gave much thought to this practice until my father encouraged me to go for my feet. I was on steroids and pain pills and now am completely off all meds! Please go to Doc if you are considering trying Acupuncture….. Again thank you Doc for all you do for us!

Alvaro’s treatment was very helpful in leading me to feel emotionally grounded after going through several losses in my life. This is my first time receiving acupuncture in several years, and I feel very lucky that I found Alvaro as a practitioner. He has a calming, focused demeanor. I felt very comfortable with his treatment, and would highly recommend him.
Laura Seaman August 17, 2015
As a practitioner of Chinese Medicine I see Dr. Toledo to maintain my health. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented with herbs and can create a custom formula from his herbal dispensary personally tailored for my needs. His is also well versed in several different systems of acupuncture and I get incredible results from his methods. If you are on the fence about trying Oriental Medicine or looking for someone who won’t disappoint, look no further than Dr. Toledo. Not only does he care about every detail of your case but he has the heart and compassion that make him a peerless healer and physician.

Alvaro Toledo is simply the BEST -professional and thorough in every way. I’m a professional dancer and he’s worked on my back, neck, and achilles, through gentle alignment work, massage, kinesio tape, and needle treatments. I can’t even feel the tiny needles when they’re on me. Alvaro is one of the very few out there making his own Chinese herbal tinctures, custom-made per patient. One is currently helping me with circulation and even gingivitis. If you know the benefits of acupuncture, you need to know Alvaro. If you haven’t tried Chinese medicine yet, save yourself pain, money, and long waits at the doctor’s impersonal office – visits to Alvaro are far more welcoming, dignified, and EFFECTIVE.

Mr. Alvaro Toledo has treated me for sciatica disorder with extreme success. I also suffer from scoliosis of the spine. His expertise and professionalism in the field of acupuncture have been a blessing. Thanks to him I’ve been able to live like a normal functioning human being. I will seek his services wherever he is. I highly recommend him based on my successful experience
