"I came to Dr. Perretta because I was trying to get pregnant and I had PCOS. I hadn't gotten my period for over three months. I didn't want to take medication to bring on my period. Within the first few treatments of acupuncture, I got my period and was able to get pregnant shortly after. After I was pregnant, I continued to receive treatments. I also had a prenatal massage by Susan which was wonderful. Dr. Perretta is such a amazing doctor person and friend. She is so kind, and genuine. She is really helpful and I have learned so much from her. Her whole staff are so warm ans welcoming as well. They are like family. I always look forward to my treatments. Since my visits to the Lighthouse Wellness Center, I am now the proud mommy of a beautiful 18 month boy!!"

"I was a 39 year-old diabetic trying to get pregnant and after almost 2 years of fertility treatments, my husbands benefits stopped covering fertility. I did some research and was incredibly lucky to find Dr. Perretta. She was up front with me about the commitment I needed to make to acupuncture and what it would entail. Even with my PCOS after a few months of treatments my cycles went from 90 days all the way down to 35. After two 35 day cycles I found out I was pregnant and just gave birth to a 10 pound baby girl. I tell anyone who will listen that acupuncture is the reason I was able to get pregnant. I also had a C-section and recovered much faster than I did from my first section. Acupuncture and Lighthouse Wellness will always be a part of my routine and I couldn't be more grateful. Dr. Perretta and her staff are all knowledgeable and professional while still being friendly. Lighthouse Wellness has given me a beautiful daughter and made our family complete."

"I had a muscle spasm in my back that crippled me to the point of not being able to stand or sit without being in pain. Dr. Perretta took the time to work the muscle with a combination of chiropractic and acupuncture. I saw results within the first visit and was back on my feet within a week. Dr. Perretta shows a sincere interest in her patients well being. She followed up with a phone call to see how I was doing after my first treatment. The staff is friendly and professional. The atmosphere of the office is soothing and relaxing. I am a firm believer in chiropractic and acupuncture. Lighthouse Wellness Center combines the two perfectly for the optimum treatment."

"I was in a car accident a couple of months prior, while living in Staten Island. I was still experiencing a lot of back and neck pain from being rear-ended when I moved out to Long Island, and decided to see Dr. Perretta. In addition, my job is incredibly tough on my body, so I was experiencing some back issues from that a s well. Dr. Perretta's treatments were a blessing. In one visit, she made me feel better than I had since my accident! Dr. Perretta and her staff are not only extremely knowledgeable and helpful, but incredibly courteous and caring as well. I was greeted by name and with a smile, and never once made to feel uncomfortable. The massage therapist was simply amazing--she asked me exactly where my pain was, and proceeded to take great care in focusing on my problem areas. I had previously had a bad experience with acupuncture, and told Dr. Perretta about this. She informed me of her techniques, and guaranteed this would be different-and she did not let me down. She was so gentle and I felt no pain or discomfort at all. Her chiropractic techniques were the same. She was gentle, yet effective, while making it known that she truly cares. She took her time to explain things to me--why I was feeling pain, how she was going to help, and things I could do to continue feeling better. Dr. Perretta and her staff are not only true professionals, but it is also overwhelming clear that they honestly care about their patients. Since visiting Lighthouse Wellness Center, I've noticed a big change in my condition. Dr. Perretta and her staff sent me down a path of feeling better, and I could not be more grateful. Lighthouse Wellness Center is a rare find, and while you may not end up there under the best circumstances, you will certainly leave feeling like a new person"

"My primary visits to Lighthouse Wellness was for stress relief through massage therapy. One day I happen to get into conversation with Dr. Perretta about an on going problem of tooth infections that usually arise every winter (For some reason they only come in the colder months). I had explained to her that when the problem happens. I would take antibiotics and lots of ibuprofen to help rid the infection and pain. But sometimes the pain was just so unbearable that ibuprofen wasn't affective when taking so many. She wasn't so happy to hear about my home remedies. So one day I had a really bad infection, to the point my whole left side of my face was swollen. I had went to the dentist who could only prescribe the necessary antibiotics and suggested tooth removal. But they couldn't remove the tooth until the infection was cleared. The pain was so bad I didn't know what to do. I was in the area at the time and I just stopped into the office to see if she had any advice with the swelling and pain. Once she had seen my face. She immediately asked me to go into one of the treatment rooms. She had used a form of acupuncture and a heat stick called moxa but I will never forget the name. Within minutes of the acupuncture needles settings and the use of that moxa stick. The pain went away as well as the swelling decreased by at least half. This was within 10 minutes!! I was amazed. Thank you Dr. Perretta for all that you have done for me. You are a true saint."

"I came to Lighthouse Wellness Center for neck pain as well as hand, wrist & thumb pain. I was in 3 car accidents where I was hit from behind. I have to get chiropractic adjustments or I get dizzy & have a hard time functioning in every day life. I also have problems with my right hand, wrist & thumb. It's not carpal tunnel, but the doctors can not find out what the pain is from. I've been to many chiropractors & I always had to go three times a week because the adjustments weren't that good. Now I go once a week & feel great! Also, through acupuncture treatments & massage therapy my hands are doing so much better. In 2004, I went to cosmetology school, but was not able to take my state board exam due to the hand pain. I am happy to say that 2 years ago I did take the exam & I am now a licensed cosmetologist because of the treatment I received from Lighthouse Wellness Center. Everyone is so nice, friendly & professional. It's such a positive & relaxing environment. If I need to change my appointment, they always go out of their way to accommodate my request. I feel like I'm going to visit my family every time I go in for my appointment. They truly are a part of my family. The treatment that I get from Lighthouse Wellness Center has made a huge difference in my life. I'm so thankful that I found them. I have recommended Lighthouse Wellness Center to my friends, family and co-workers."

"After suffering from bouts of anxiety, depression and fatigue, I decided to give acupuncture a try. I was already receiving chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Perretta that relieved my back pain from scoliosis. Although it usually takes more than one treatment of acupuncture, I found relief very quickly. I now receive acupuncture regularly and also make time for massages from the wonderful massage therapists on staff. Every visit to Lighthouse Wellness Center has been a positive one. The staff is welcoming and kind and the atmosphere is warm. I travel from Westchester County to East Meadow for my treatment there because of how much better I feel!"

"Over a year ago I was in a bad car accident and resluted in 3 broken ribs and horrible back pain. I has previously seen Dr. Perretta before the accident so I knew exactly who to go to for help! Dr. Perretta always puts me as ease and even though I was in such pain I knew I would be taken care of. I was always comfortab le to ask any questions or concerns I had and was always given back knowledgeable feedback. I would go into the office at times in horrible pain but she would never let me leave feeling that way always made sure I was okay when I left, not just rushing to see a patient. She is always attentive and takes her time. Dr. Perretta helped me tremendously, my ribs and lower back and I still see her from time to time reaccuring pain and I know when I leave her office I will come out ten times better !! I would recommend her to anyone, because I know they will leave and get the right treatment and services they need."
