Healthcare Providers

Find here the names of surgeons, physical therapists, acupuncture and Chinese medicine practitioners, yoga instructors, and other healthcare providers who have been recommended by YHR members or friends of YHR. The recommendation of a healthcare provider from someone who has gotten good care can be invaluable. We hope to expand this resource with the names of healthcare providers from all over the world.

At this stage Healthcare providers are listed in alphabetical order by state in USA with locations outside of USA at the bottom of each category. This page is a work in progress and names will continue to be added.

– If you would like to recommend that your surgeon or healthcare provider be added to this resource list please contact YHR . Please include his/her/their name, profession, address and contact information (see below for examples).
– If you are a healthcare provider and would like to be added to the list please contact YHR. Please include your name, professional credentials/training, address, contact information, and whether you would like to receive discount codes for your patients/clients/students (see below for examples).
