What Patients Are Saying...

I have been a patient of Dr. Holly Durning for over 5 years.  I came to her with rotator cuff pain and clicking in my fingers from holding my golf clubs too tight.  I did not want to go through surgery if this would work.  Miracle of miracles it worked!  Dr. Holly is truly amazing.  She is knowledgeable and dedicated to healing and wellness.  I still go to her for general wellness. I truly don't know what I would have done without her help.

I started seeing Dr. Holly Durning in 2016.  She is a great diagnostician and extremely competent Acupuncturist.  She treats chronic disease states and can shorten the duration of any infection. As a board certified hospice and palliative medicine physician, I have also co-treated many patients with Dr. Durning and the results were incredible.  She and I collaborated care throughout our patient's disease process which enabled our patients to rely on less Western medications and have a better quality of life.  She doesn't just treat symptoms-Dr. Durning gets to the root cause of disease... she listens and truly cares about her patients!

Dr. Lisa Maria Tartaglia, D.O.

During her tenure as an Acupuncture Physican in Boca Raton, FL. Dr. Holly Durning treated me many times over the course of more than a year and I found her to be an extraordinarily competent, knowledgeable, and compassionate practitioner.  I couldn't recommend her more highly.

I walked into Holly's office beyond distressed! I was just told the day before I had my third autoimmune disease and had to go on even more medication! My sister highly recommended Holly, what did I have to loose, right? I began seeing her 3 times a week and taking herbs and formulas, by the 6th month of treatments, I was off 1 medication and feeling so good.

Within the year, I was off 3 of my 4 medications and working on that fourth. Holly was my miracle worker! 

I also always developed serious bronchial infections from the smallest of colds, again Holly to the rescue!

Holly also helped me greatly with my severe back pain. I recall a visit that I had my son drive me straight from the airport to her office cause I hurt my back. With in 24 hours I was back up and walking. Every time I began to feel a bit out of sync, it was time for a tune up, as I call them. I am now thanks to Holly a huge acupuncture lover. Her loving and sweet compassionate bedside manner is worth a million dollars! My only complaint is that she left Boca Raton.

Mary Teems

Dr. Holly is kind, caring and compassionate.  I went to acupuncture for help with insomnia.  The treatments helped the insomnia and so much more!  After a few sessions I found my overall physical and emotional heath improved.  Acupuncture is a permanent part of my wellness plan.

Linda Goldberg

Dr. Holly is amazing both professionally and personally. I am grateful to her because she assisted me tremendously with many health concerns, specifically stress and  not sleeping.  I honestly feel that I treat myself better and am healthier  because of so many recommendations she made. I began seeing her in 2016 until she relocated her practice.  She is a  caring Physician  that truly listens and is very effective with both treatments and recommendations of herbs and supplements. I have referred her family members and clients specifically for anxiety and other health issues. They are always grateful. 

Thank you Dr. Holly, we really miss you in Boca Raton!
