Dr. Susan Schiff

Susan G. Schiff, A.P., DOM

Dr. Schiff is certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as a Diplomate of Acupuncture (Dip.Ac.) and Diplomate of Chinese Herbal Medicine (Dip.CH). Dr. Schiff is also board certified by the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM).
Her initial motivation to study and train in alternative approaches to health care was a personal one. After suffering with endometriosis for 12 years, Dr. Schiff became disillusioned and frustrated with the limitations of Western medical protocols, and sought an alternative course of treatment that would enable her to manage and overcome her disabling condition.

 

In the hands of well-trained Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, her health changed significantly over a six month period through a combination of Oriental based massage, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs. This gave Dr. Schiff a new lease on life. She was so impressed that she made the decision to pursue the finest TCM education available in the field.

 

Dr. Schiff completed her studies at the University of Florida, the New Center College for Holistic Health and Research in Syosset, New York, The Heilong Jiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Harbin, China and the Community School for Traditional Chinese Medicine, North Miami Beach, Florida. She has interned with Randine Lewis, Ph.D., author of the Infertility Cure and founder of the Fertile Soul Retreats. Dr. Schiff is also a charter member of the Fertile Soul Clinic Excellence in Fertility program. She is also the founder and creator of www.AcuBaby.com, an integrative web resource for the fertility community, both patient and practitioner alike.

 

In Palm Beach County, Dr. Schiff is the clinical director of Acupuncture Associates and treats patients in Delray Beach and Wellington, Florida. She has been treating patients for a broad range of health issues for over a decade, with a special concentration and expertise in gynecology and reproductive wellness. Dr. Schiff works closely with many reproductive endocrinologists, OBGYNs, internists and supportive practitioners to provide a team approach for her patient base. She continues to study and train with classic masters and specialists throughout the world.

Susan G. Schiff, A.P., DOM, is NCCAOM Board Certified in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine, as well as ABORM Board Certified.

Dr. Irene A. García

Irene A García, A.P., DOM

Her journey into the world of alternative medicine began when it became evident that her daily routine filled with the stresses of corporate America was negatively affecting her health. The demanding lifestyle led her to her first yoga class. This ancient science helped to restore not only peace and tranquility to Irene’s life, but also introduced her to a theory of how the body could restore its health naturally. Shortly after, she was introduced to acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Ironically, her hunt was not to cure a so called disease but yet to feel healthy for the first time as an alternative to the current western medicines she had been offered. Dr. García proceeded to complete her yoga teacher certification.

 

Motivated to learn more about the ancient theories of natural healing she began her studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Chicago at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine, and continued studies at The Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

 

Dr. García strives to integrate the Eastern and Western theories and philosophies of healing in her approach to using acupuncture. Over the last 4 years she has been given many opportunities to juxtapose Eastern theories for healing and relieving discomfort of many complicated Western diagnoses such as infertility, migraines, and chronic pain. She worked and studied for two years with Dr. Peilan Yao, M.D. (China), AP, a seventh generation herbalist who specializes in fertility and gynecological issues. This gave Dr. García invaluable experience and knowledge of how herbal formulas can truly reduce the pain and suffering of many gynecological issues. She is currently taking continued education courses with Dr. Bruce Robinson, M.D., a medical doctor and surgeon for thirty years who embraces both Western and Oriental medicines and understands how the two paradigms can best work together for the benefit of the patient. These studies allow her to better serve her patients allowing them to benefit from the best of both Eastern and Western medicines combined.

 

Dr. García’s goal is to see patients integrate acupuncture and Oriental medicine as part of their daily lives, eliminating potential health risks in advance while maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle. In addition, her bilingual abilities allow her to communicate fluently with both the Hispanic and American population here in South Florida, allowing for a broader range of individuals that can benefit from this medicine.

 

Irene A. García is a Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl. O.M.) as certified through the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Donna J. Tomey

Donna J. Tomey, C.C.T.

Donna received her certification at Duke University under the auspices of the American College of Clinical Thermology, Inc.

 

After her own experience with breast cancer in early 2006, Donna learned about thermography as the earliest breast cancer screening tool available. There is no painful compression or harmful radiation, and is designed to detect abnormal vascular changes in breast tissue 8-10 years earlier than mammography or any other imaging method. It can also detect changes throughout your body, which allows you enough time to make the appropriate lifestyle, nutritional, and hormonal changes to reverse the possibility of disease and ill health.

 

Shortly after the mastectomy of her right breast, Donna did a thermogram of her other breast and learned there were significant vascular changes that put her at serious risk for cancer in that breast. With the help of a nutritionist, Donna was able to reverse these changes by making the necessary alterations to her diet, lifestyle and hormones.

 

Donna J. Tomey is a Certified Clinical Thermographer.
