Why I Work at ICHS:

When I first arrived in the United States, the Asian community helped me get on my feet. In the multicultural setting of ICHS, I believe I can give back to the Asian Pacific Islander community. As opportunities to practice acupuncture and Chinese Traditional Medicine have become increasingly widespread in theUnited States, I am proud to practice in such a rewarding community health setting.

Patient Care Philosophy:

I treat every patient holistically and take care to consider each individual’s unique circumstances in his or her treatment plan. I believe my relationship with the patient should always be cooperative. Together, we decide how best to realize the patient’s health goals.

Note:

An acupuncturist knows traditional Chinese medicine and the body’s pressure points and uses special needles to treat certain illnesses and conditions in a holistic way.
