  • I began going to Dr. Robert Herbst in 2015 when I was struggling with unexplained infertility.  He helped us conceive our beautiful little girl (which I wrote a review on previously with the timeline of that part of my story).  I began going back to him again in July of 2018 as we were trying to have another baby with little success again. I was actually getting pregnant this time around but was unable to hold the pregnancies. When I met with him again, he asked me several questions and after looking at my tongue and checking my pulse, he basically told me in a nutshell that my body was in stress and I needed to take some time to reboot myself both physically and emotionally. I began doing acupuncture weekly, taking herbs again, and spending a little time each week on “me”. He asked us not to try conceiving again for a couple months until he felt like I was strong enough. In late September he gave us the go ahead to try for this next cycle. We conceived our son the first week of October!!! I had really bad anxiety about losing this baby as well so I started going to him twice a week for a few weeks which really helped! I am currently almost 15 weeks pregnant and I can honestly say that both of my children were conceived because of Dr. Robert’s help! I am so grateful for him and everything he has done for my family! I recommend anyone who is struggling with having a baby to go see him!

  • Dr. Herbst has helped make my family’s dreams a reality! I was seeing Dr. Herbst in conjunction with a fertility specialist who highly recommended Dr. Herbst, and it was one of the best decisions I made. He is so knowledgeable and personable. I immediately knew I was in great hands! Dr. Herbst treated me for infertility and I am now 11.5 weeks pregnant!!! Not only is the doctor amazing, but the entire office staff are sweet and helpful people. Dr. Herbst and his staff will always have a special place in my heart!!!! – CV

  • I first came to Dr. Herbst very hopeful yet not knowing what to expect. I’ve suffered from amenorrhea from the very beginning of my menstrual cycles. After only a month and a half of treatment and herbs, I got my period and have had four subsequent regular monthly periods since. For the first time I’m able to tell when I ovulate and know when to expect my cycle. I would recommend acupuncture and most especially Dr. Herbst to anyone.

  • I was told I’d have difficulty getting pregnant due to my PCOS. So when I thought it was time to start trying, I was recommended to Dr Robert. With acupuncture and recommended herbs from Dr Robert, I got pregnant in no time! I have continued my treatments throughout my first trimester and am happy to report that I’ve had no morning sickness and am enjoying every moment of my pregnancy! I’d like to think it’s due to my treatments with Dr Robert. Going into this, I thought that getting pregnant would be difficult and stressful. It’s been quite the opposite! Thanks Dr Robert!!!

  • I was searching for a place that specialized in acupuncture for infertility and this place was the first one that popped up! After a failed 1st ivf I decide to try acupuncture and figured it couldn’t hurt! From the moment I walked in the girls at the front desk welcomed me and every visit greeted me by name. After talking to Robert and telling him I had about a month till my next ivf attempt he said it would be best to go 2 days a week, and I agreed. I can’t commend Robert enough! Thanks to him I’m happy to announce that I’m 11 weeks pregnant and I truly believe it was because of acupuncture. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to him and his staff. I will definately be back after baby is born. This place and it’s staff will hold a special place in my heart. Thank you!

  • Excellent Service and Highly Recommended!!! I was looking for an alternative methodology (acupuncture) when I found The Acupuncturists. I had high FSH levels (19.7) and I was told by my specialist that there was nothing to do, because there were no treatments to cure high FSH levels. The first time I walked in at Care Wellness Center, I knew I was in the right place. Dr. Landon and Dr. Robert have been taking care of me, making me feel very special every time I go there. My FSH levels are normal now and I feel excellent . Dr. Landon and Dr Robert are very professional, knowledgeable and very dedicated with their patients. The staff is great, friendly and makes you feel part of the family. I definitely recommend The Acupuncturists.

  • “I had a difficult time getting pregnant. Me and my husband tried for many years while I struggled with a stubborn case of PCOS, polycystic ovaries. Nothing had worked. I was depressed, I was skeptical but I decided to give Dr. Robert and acupuncture and his herbs a try. Well it didn’t take long before I was a believer. It was probably 4 cycles after starting that I received a positive pregnancy test, maintained my pregnancy and gave birth to my son 9 months later. Were’ beyond grateful and hope others give this a try.” ~ Ava – Coral Springs Florida

  • “Dr. Robert Herbst is amazing. I started going to him a few months before starting my IVF treatment. He really made the whole experience stress free and relaxing for me. I am now 11 weeks pregnant and am continuing to do acupuncture until my first trimester is over. I want to thank Dr. Herbst and his staff for making this a wonderful experience.” ~ Nicole, Boca Raton , Florida

  • “I started acupuncture treatment with Dr Robert Herbst about four months before I was planning to start an IVF cycle. I wanted to give my body a rest before starting another round of injections and medications that really took a toll on me physically and mentally. It was to be our third time trying IVF and this time we decided to incorporate acupuncture into the process. Through my own research I discovered that acupuncture was really great to increase the success of IVF, and also that it was possible to get pregnant with just acupuncture alone. Well to my surprise I got pregnant after only 9 weeks into my treatment with Dr Herbst. we didn’t have to do another round of IVF after all. Me and my husband were ecstatic to say the least! I’m a believer.”

  • “My husband and I decided to try to have a baby in 2010. We tried naturally for 5 months but with no luck. Then in August of 2010 my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. We were told we have to start banking his sperm if we want to have kids because once he has the surgery to remove his prostate we can not have a baby. We continued trying as his doctors gave us 6 months to get pregnant because IVF would be our next step and would be expensive. During the 6 months we tried naturally and did 3 rounds of IUI insemination with poor results. We took a one month break so my husband could have his surgery and we did not have to worry about the stress of a baby. After that we tried 2 rounds of IVF – in vitro fertilization – Still no luck! I was devastated and feeling really down and empty not able to get pregnant. Then one of my husbands friends said to us “did we try Acupuncture?” I said “no, will that help?” She said that’s how she got pregnant with all her kids. We also read books that recommended acupuncture when you do IVF. So we went ahead and found Dr Robert and started acupuncture treatment. To my surprise I was pregnant on my next try of IVF, this time with the help of acupuncture. We just had a 9 pound baby boy August 4th, 2012! We are so so happy and thankful to Dr. Robert Herbst and his team. If it was not for acupuncture, I don’t think I would have gotten pregnant. We are planning on a second child and will definitely be doing acupuncture with Dr. Herbst and his team to help us get pregnant.” ~ Thanks SRR ( Margate Florida )

  • “After two years of struggling trying to get pregnant, two years of testing costing tons of money, two years of frustration due to numerous miscarriages, I was referred to Dr Landon Agoado by a friend (who he helped get pregnant in a similar seemingly hopeless situation) and now all I can say is if it wasn’t for his compassion, spirit and Traditional Chinese Medical knowledge, we would have given up. Good thing we didn’t! I just gave birth to a 6lb 5 oz beautiful boy who was just named “Landon” so we never forget the Angel he has been to us.” ~ Stephanie ( Margate, FL)

  • “My husband and I decided to start a family at the end of 2005. Six months went by without success and I started a BBT chart (Basal Body Temperature) to track my most fertile days. After another 2 years of disappointment, I decided to quit my stressful job and look for something closer to home and less demanding. I thought this would definitely increase our chances of conceiving. After another year of unsuccessful attempts to fall pregnant we consulted my Ob/Gyn who performed ultrasounds, which were normal. She then referred us to an IVF Center. Both my husband’s semen analysis and my HSG test came back normal. A year later after more failed attempts, we went back to run another series of tests.”

    “We were fairly upset at this point and after the tests were completed, the doctors advised that all tests were normal except that I had a lower follicle count than normal and they suggested we try IVF. It was just financially and emotionally out of the question. It was at this point that I searched the internet for “low ovarian reserve / low follicle count” and stumbled upon acupuncture and Chinese herbs for infertility. I searched for a local acupuncturist and found Dr. Robert Herbst in September 2010. He is down to earth, easy to talk with, and the acupuncture treatments he gave me were very relaxing. He prescribed me Chinese herbs that I took daily and by my 4th menstrual cycle I was pregnant! After 5 years of trying, I am now a very happy mother to an adorable 7 week old daughter.” Megan – Margate, Florida
