In California, Acupuncturists are required to take an especially rigorous course of study since they are registered as General Practitioners (GP) and must attend a school that meets the standards for Western doctors. The program I chose to attend in New York thorough Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) is a California based program that trains graduates as GPs.
I had four years of clinical training at PCOM's resident clinic in New York City. I worked with several supervisors of numerous specialties to obtain a well rounded experience towards my diagnostic and practical skills. These included: women's health, auto immune disease, pain management, orthopedic assessment, and emotional health. In addition, during the past seven years, I served at several Community Acupuncture programs in New York and New Jersey.

With care proficiency and respect, it is my goal to provide compassionate, confidential and cost effective treatment in a safe professional environment. I am committed to the priviledge of serving each of my patients with integrity, enthusiasm, compassion and responsibility in their quest for optimum health and longevity.
