Through  visiting patients who suffered from failed conventional treatments,  medication addiction, drug side effects and also surgical complications,  Mehrdad was motivated to seek for a less invasive, more effective and  safer option to help them, which he discovered while being a volunteer  in an Acupuncture clinic in Glendale, California.

He  found the ability of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine to help patients  deal with their health issues. He realized in TCM (Traditional Chinese  Medicine), by applying basic medical history, physical exams, checking  tongue and pulse and also interestingly without ordering costly  diagnostic tests, the right diagnosis and optimal treatment can be  achieved.

After  earning his Medical Doctorate (M.D.) degree, he practiced Medicine in  Iran for 6 years. In US, by passing all Steps of USMLE (United States  Medical Licensing Examination) and receiving ECFMG (Educational  Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) Certification and furthermore  by spending 2 years of Clinical Research in USC (University of Southern  California), Mehrdad updated his knowledge in Basic and Clinical  Sciences.

By  spending years of study at SBU (South Baylo University), one of top  school of TCM in US, Mehrdad graduated with Master of Science in  Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MSAOM) degree in 2013 and Doctor  of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (DAOM) in 2016 to follow his  passion in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

 All these achievements have given him the confidence to combine Western  Medicine with Oriental Medicine in order to reach the best possible  result for his patients.

 He is now ready to help patients by incorporating years of the highest  levels of education and extensive clinical experiences in Allopathic  medicine and also in Alternative and Complementary Medicine.

Mehrdad believes in balancing energy in the body and addressing the whole person as body, mind and spirit.

Our Services

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Holistic Medicine is to locate the root of your health issues and reverse them naturally. Homeopathy can treat many chronic and acute diseases, rather than managing or suppressing them. Our Acupuncturist is able to provide a deeper healing of mental, emotional, and physical complaints.  


Pain Management and Natural Pain Relief

We specialize in non-narcotic practices in healing pain such as headaches, chronic pain, joint pain, and back pain. We use an array of proven methods such as trigger point injections, chiropractic care, and rehabilitation. Our goal is to treat and relieve your pain permanently instead of using pharmaceuticals for temporary relief. 


Weight Loss and Herbal Medicine

Herbs were commonly used before western pharmaceuticals were introduced. Treating and preventing medical conditions with herbs is naturally safe.
