Meet Eun Kim, MD

Developing an Interest in Alternative Medicine

Acupuncture helped patients with symptoms that conventional medicine was not able to resolve. She was able to witness during a research protocol performed by the Fellow at UPenn using with functional MRIs, the effects of acupuncture needling in distal points corresponded to responses in the brain. Dr. Kim worked with him as part of her residency and developed a passion to offer other healing modalities to help patients.
