Binder LAc, MS, RNCNP, LCCE, Doctor of Acupuncture
Los Angeles Acupuncturist
I love medicine. All medicine. I have been a
practitioner in the Womenís Healthcare field for more than twenty years.
I began my career in Women's Health as an RN in Brooklyn working in labor and
delivery. It was in my first delivery I experienced the miracle that happens
when five people go into a room and six come out. From that moment on I
understood that I was meant to do this work.
After moving back to California, I entered Harbor-UCLA in Los Angeles to become
a specialist in Womenís Health as a nurse practitioner. I wanted to expand my
skills and knowledge in order to offer more comprehensive care to my own
patients. At first, it was exciting to have the new freedoms that my title gave
me, however, soon I discovered that I didnít have the whole picture. There was
more to learn and more to give.
I had been aware of acupuncture and alternative
medicine since the early 80ís. I had never considered applying it to my
patients. Then acupuncture interns from a local
school began seeing patients at one of the clinics where I practice. I began
referring my patients to them to address the complaints that my western training
had not resolved. To my delight, they consistently got results.
After a year of observing this phenomenon, I decided to study Traditional
Chinese Medicine to become a licensed acupuncturist. It has been an
extraordinary journey. I have learned a whole new perspective on health from an
eastern point of view to enhance my Western medical training.
It has enriched my life and I believe the lives of my patients as well. I am now
able to evaluate and treat my patients more completely through
acupuncture, herbs and a comprehensive lifestyle
My love for medicine will always lead me to the best and most comprehensive care
for my patients. I look forward to helping you on your journey to radiant
health and well-being.
