Board Certifications

Internal Medicine

I am an integrative medicine specialist, board-certified internist, and a licensed acupuncturist who seeks to promote the health and well-being of people whose lives have been affected by cancer. I use evidence-based complementary approaches with standard cancer care to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of my patients. Drawing from the latest scientific evidence, I provide guidance on healthy eating, exercise, sleep, stress management, and the safe, appropriate use of traditional Chinese herbal formulas and other dietary supplements. I also use acupuncture to manage symptoms that may arise from the cancer treatment process such as pain, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, hot flashes, anxiety, depression, and difficulties with memory or concentration.

As a faculty member on the Integrative Medicine Service, I educate medical trainees and conduct research on the effects and mechanisms of complementary approaches, including acupuncture, massage, yoga, mindfulness techniques, and music and dance therapies. I currently oversee a study that examines the use of acupuncture to improve cognitive function in cancer survivors. I am dedicated to advancing the research and practice of integrative medicine with the goal of making evidence-based complementary therapies available to everyone and their communities.  

I use evidence-based complementary approaches with standard cancer care to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of my patients.
