He completed rounds in the acupuncture departments and in herbal medicine departments for digestive disorders, diabetes, neurology, oncology, gynecology, cardiology, respiratory disease, and dermatology. The focus of his residency was with Dr. Zhang Zhi Wen, internationally recognized master Wen Bing practitioner; Wen Bing , ”warm disease”, is a specialty practice that tends to treat a range of upper respiratory illness and febrile (fever) disease. People would come to Dr. Zhang Zhi Wen for herbal prescriptions to treat conditions from the common cold to advanced pulmonary fibrosis.

Observing the practice of Dr. Zhang profoundly influenced my understanding and formulation of Chinese herbal medicine. I have adopted his approach for my patients in the United States.
