My goal is to help patients get the care they need to bring them to a more balanced state of health at the lowest possible cost. I treat a lot of people who are suffering from long-term enduring, chronic conditions, those who are often told nothing can be done for them. I am speaking about people suffering from degenerative vision disorders. Being able to help them improve the quality of their lives is a blessing. I feel privileged to be able to help in any way possible.
I believe it is my job to help patients have reasonable expectations about the care they will receive, and if it is not possible to help them, I will send them to someone who can help. Acupuncture is not the right treatment for everyone, although it can help most conditions.
Educating patients is my passion; about acupuncture and oriental medicine, nutrition and lifestyle, as well as having a healthy attitude about health and life.
I was trained in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) at the International Institute of Chinese Medicine, a system that has endured for over five thousand years. Further training includes two systems for treating degenerative eye diseases; Acunova and Micro Acupuncture. I became a doctor of oriental medicine because I saw that this system worked, and I have always embraced the oriental traditions. There are only about a half dozen oriental medicine practitioners in the US who specialize in the treatment of degenerative eye diseases. I practice two modalities, both of which are known to help those suffering from these debilitating conditions. I have worked with the visually impaired for about 12 years, consistently seeing positive results.
