Doug earned his Master’s degree in Acupuncture & Chinese Herbology from Seattle Institute of Oriental Medicine (SIOM) in Seattle, Washington. Dr. Xie and Dr. Dan Bensky among others had great influence on his path to become a practitioner of the Chinese medicine.
I may be new to the Raleigh area but I bring with me 20 years of experience from Lynnwood, Washington. My wife and I recently relocated from Lynnwood, Washington to Raleigh in order for us to be closer to family.
Doug is a licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.) in North Carolina and an East Asian Medicine Practitioner (EAMP) in Washington state and holds two National Diplomates in Chinese herbology and acupuncture from National Certification Commission Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). After graduation, he visited South Korea and developed a mentorship with Dr. Jae-Du Kim in Seoul, South Korea who studied in Taiwan. When Dr. Kim treated Doug years ago, it left a deep impression on Doug for the following years and Dr. Kim is the one who inspired Doug to study Chinese medicine years later.
