Monte Gores' bio

This content was provided by Monte Gores "Dr. Monte Gores is a board certified acupuncturist and herbalist by the state of Idaho, California, and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). With Over 16 years of experience in Chinese medicine, Dr. Gores brings a wealth of knowledge to treat even the most difficult medical issues. In 1992, Dr. Gores began studying yoga, martial arts, and meditation while attending Arizona State University. This was his first introduction to eastern medicine and philosophy. In 1999, he began his formal training in acupuncture, Qi Gong, and herbal medicine while apprenticing at Quan Yin Healing Arts Center in San Francisco. This center is world famous for treating hepatitis C and HIV communities using an integrative medical approach. After leaving a stressful job with Goldman Sachs, trading equity options in Chicago and San Francisco, Dr. Gores studied Chinese language for a year before traveling to China. He wanted to visit the origins of Chinese medicine before embarking on a lifetime of study and medical practice. Upon returning to San Francisco, he attended one of the top Traditional Chinese Medicine schools in North America, The American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine (ACTCM), for four years. Dr. Gores also received extensive training in China. Orthopedics, diabetes, fertility, oncology, migraines, hepatitis and neprhology were areas of expertise gained while in China. In 2004, After graduating magna cum laude, Dr. Gores opened a Acupuncture clinic in Arizona. While maintaining a busy clinical practice, he completed a two year Doctoral program at the famous, Emperor's College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, in Santa Monica. The Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) is the highest level of education in the field of Chinese medicine in America. Dr. Gores focused on sports medicine, cardiology, oncology, and women's health while completing his Doctoral degree. His capstone thesis is entitled, "Acupuncture in the treatment of Insomnia." After graduation and 10 great years in Flagstaff, Arizona, Dr. Gores and his family decided to relocate to beautiful Coeur D'Alene, Idaho.

I have been going to Dr. Gores for the past few months for a variety of aches and pains. He is so caring, so knowledgeable, so capable. I leave his office feeling so much better and more informed about what is going on with my body and how I can better care for it. All with a few needles, maybe some herbs and no pills or shots. I recommend him highly.

Monte is terrific! I must admit that I was very anxious my first time. Monte immediately relieved all my concerns about privacy, respect, and safety with an up-front professional interview during which he explained his theory of practice. Monte took the time to educate me on his techniques & allowed me to choose when and how to proceed with treatment. My initial experience was truly an A-ha moment. Maslow believed all humans strive for peak-experiences. Thanks to Monte, I found relief and peace.
