One life. Live it well.
Here to listen.
Here to help.
Here to be an advocate for you and your health.
With decades of experience combining integrative medicine (treating the whole person) and western medicine, I take pride in bringing a diverse experience as well as a deep commitment to my patients. I strive to be an insightful advocate for your health and a collaborator who is ready to work with you wherever you may be on your health journey.
I hold a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine (M.S.O.M), from The Santa Barbara College of Oriental Medicine and I am licensed to practice acupuncture and herbal medicine. I am among only a handful of licensed practitioners internationally to hold an herbal dermatology certification, a rigorous 2-year study and testing process with one of the foremost leaders in the field, Dr. Mazin Al-Khafaji. Moreover, I have completed an intensive training on “Acupuncture for the Cancer Patient '' at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital in New York City. And am currently working on completing my certification at the American Institute of Integrative Oncology with Dr Nalini Chilkov. My experience and specialties include dermatology, auto-immune dysfunction, gastro-intestinal health, oncology support, addiction and pain management. My passion is to assist my patients and enhance their knowledge of integrating current western medical practices with Eastern medicine.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I really feel Aydin was able to provide the support I needed, as a woman, during a time when I wasn't sure what to do. It wasn't necessarily because he had all the answers or was able to give me something to make me feel better right away. It was because I had someone I could go to and voice my concerns. And I think that's a rare quality in practitioners.
I'm a health care practitioner, so I know what it takes to build rapport with a patient to where they can feel comfortable enough to give you the information you need. Aydin is, in my opinion and my experience, excellent at giving the attention and providing the safe environment to assist the patient in providing him with the information he needs to diagnose and treat.
I have psoriasis. No doctor would listen to me. Dr. Aydin listened. He wanted to understand. Conventional medicine just doesn't do that. Here's your pill. Here's your prescription. Out you go.
My psoriasis used to just be on my knees and my elbows, and then it started getting all over my thighs and stomach. Anywhere that I had skin, there was psoriasis. It was very frustrating and he helped me learn to manage it and heal my skin.
