QUALIFICATIONS
I have been extensively trained in the art of oriental diagnosis and treatment based on ancient wisdom from a Traditional Chinese Master Physician. The school in which I trained is no longer open, however, the Master Physician that I trained under is still educating many in the field of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  The Chou School of Acupuncture trained their students with both acupuncture and Chinese herbs in order to get the best results for the patients.  Rigorous discipline and experience from serving in the Taiwanese military has also provided a platform for developing mental skills to logically, decisively develop medical treatment plans for my patients.  My desire was to bring the ancient wisdom of Chinese medicine to the people of the United States.  I pursued that desire by becoming licensed in the state of Florida by the Florida Board of Acupuncture.  I am a focused physician with broad clinical experience in multiple pathology in internal medicine.
