FAMILY TRADITION, ONE MORE CHINESE TRADITION

 

Formed in 1979 by a group of highly educated Chinese medical experts from the same family,  ACMHealth Center is one of the most successful Chinese medical clinic chains in Northern California.  All our doctors are trained in China’s most prestige medical universities for both Western and Eastern disciplines and with years of experience in teaching, research and clinical practice.  Serving the Bay Area for more thirty years allows our doctors to work with tens of thousands of patients with all kind of conditions: from allergies to arthritis, from low back pain to migraines. 

From a famous medical family in southern China, Dr. Susan Chen, a 1958 graduate of ZhongShan University School of Medicine, and a professor of American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is the director of the San Francisco Clinic.  Her brother, Dr. DaRen Chen, the medical director of the Fremont Clinic, graduated from Peking (Beijing) University School of Medicine in 1959 with high honors and has been practicing medicine for fifty years with extensive experience in pain management.  His wife, Dr. Sue Y. Lin, also a Peking University medical school graduate, is a seasoned medical practitioner with a wealth of knowledge and experience in both Chinese and Western medicines. She is in charge of the San Mateo Office.  Dr. Edwin Chen, the elder son of DaRen and Sue, valedictorian from Palmer College and holder of both Chiropractic and Acupuncture licenses, is the head of the Clinic’s Oriental Traumatology Department.  Edwin’s wife, Dr. Jessica Min, a graduate of Shanghai University of Chinese Medicine, is especially knowledgeable in herbalogy. Dr. Ian H. Lin, the younger son of DaRen and Sue and an honor graduate of Tufts University School of Medicine, is a Board Certified internist and a specialist of Medical Acupuncture. He is in charge of Integrated Medicine Department. He is stationed at San Mateo Office.
