Meet Our Evergreen Family

Tina T. Chen, M.S., L.Ac.

As the youngest member in a family of licensed practitioners, Tina Chen regards Oriental medicine as a family tradition, not just a career. She graduated from South Baylo University of Oriental Medicine, the University of California at Irvine, and pursued extensive post-graduate training in China in Anhui Hospital, First Tianjin Hospital and Guananmen Hospital. Tina Chen is a licensed acupuncturist, also certified in TCM by the World Health Organization, with specialties in herbology, gynecology and internal medicine. Together with Dr. John Chen, she completed the textbook Chinese Medical Herbology and Pharmacology in 2003 and the companion volume Chinese Herbal Formulas and Applications in 2008.

“We train our customer service team to put your needs above everything else. You are our first priority, as we will demonstrate by our friendliest service, finest products and prompt shipments. ‘How may we help you today?’ is our sincere question.”

“The effectiveness of treatment is of utmost concern to me, for each and every patient. The safety, quality, and potency of the herbs are crucial factors in determining treatment outcome. My goal is to make both Western and Oriental medical communities aware of herbal alternatives to drugs and the importance of drug/herb interactions, eventually bridging the gap between Eastern and Western medicine by integrating use of herbs with modern technological medicine.”
