Additional Credentials and Training

The pursuit of lifelong learning is one of my greatest passions. Even after earning the 4 year Master’s Degree (Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine or MSTOM)  and passing state and national licensure exams followed by a doctorate degree, the learning never stops.

It’s safe to say that I’m usually always in the middle of some sort of training or class to expand my knowledge base and challenge my comfort zone.  Not only do I enjoy it but it also helps me to bring the most comprehensive and contemporary treatment to my patients.
