I hope that you will find the information I have gathered and constructed for you on my site to be useful. It is my goal to answer your questions and allay your concerns about seeing a physician who is an acupuncturist and herbalist: a Traditional Asian Medicine practitioner.

If this is your first time, I encourage you to learn about the components of Traditional Asian Medicine and the differences between Chinese and Japanese acupuncture styles. If you know you will love this and want to bypass all the information for now, or you’ve previously been successfully treated with acupuncture and want to come back, then please call (773) 609-3520 for an appointment.

Because there are many things to go over with new patients in preparation for your visit, online appointments are not an option: please call the office for an appointment.

My office is located at 4753 N Broadway, Suite 810, Chicago, IL 60640 within Chicago Healing Center.

I’m delighted that you came to my site and look forward to seeing you in person!

An Important Note: May 30, 2018

Something has happened that I need to share with you. I was not looking for other work and certainly was not looking to move, but one of my mentors called to say she had created the perfect job for me a few months ago. As I explored this possibility with her, it became clear that this was indeed a possibility too ideally suited to my strengths and passions to pass up, but I explained that I would only consider this offer if I could be allowed to take it and still maintain my private practice. They have agreed to this stipulation.

Therefore, I am going to become the Director of Integrative Medicine and the Director of Culinary Medicine at SIU medical school in Springfield beginning July 16th. I will be there 80% of the time and here in Chicago seeing patients 20% of the time.

Because this job is being created for me from scratch, we are still working out what days of the week will be best for me to be at SIU and which in Chicago. As of right now, I am planning to be in Chicago every other week on Thursdays and Fridays. Thursday night will be a late evening clinic to accommodate people’s work schedules. After June 30th, I will discontinue taking new patients for a few months so that I am most available to those people for whom treatment regimens have already begun—i.e. you.

There will be a few weeks in early July where I will not be able to be in Chicago at all because of prior speaking engagements, movers, house closings, and the like. We will keep you posted about details and make every effort to accommodate your needs and schedule.

Your care will be further supported by the practitioners in the Chicago Healing Center Community Acupuncture Clinic: Sarah and I interviewed several practitioners today in anticipation of your needs.

Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
