My name is Tsung-yun (Joey) Hsieh. I am a licensed acupuncturist (Chinese medicine doctor) working in Chinese medicine department, Tri-service General Hospital. We use
[color=#0000BF] Chinese herbal medicine[/color]
[/b][/color] (and moxibustion, cupping,etc.) to help patients with their discomforts of all kinds. I am also a NCCAOM Certified Practitioner since 2011.
[color=#BFBF80]I’ve just started a clinic section from 2-5pm on Friday in Neihu main Facility since October,2014. Since it’s less busy on Friday,(This sentence was the original post, might not be the case for now.)[/color] I’d like to invite you to come to [color=#FF0000]Neihu [/color]if you’re interested in experiencing acupuncture or herbal medicine, and I’d be glad to answer your questions in English. It is my dream to promoteTraditional Chinese medicine to the whole world.
There’s also a clinic section in [color=#FF0000]Tingchou [/color]Branch near [color=#0000FF]Gongguan [/color]MRT station on Tuesday afternoon.
Recently, I reviewed the patients I've treated. There were 2,391 person-time visits in 2014.
Approximately 1/3 of them took only Chinese herbal medicine, 1/3 for acupuncture only, 1/3 receive both acupuncture and herbal medicine. Below are the main discomfort they came for help, you’ll know better about the situation when Taiwanese turn to TCM for help.
[color=#0000FF]The most frequent chief complaints are: [/color]common cold, cough, allergic rhinitis, GI disorder (constipation, diarrhea, GERD, stomachache, abdomenal distension), asthma, chest pain/tightness, menstrual disorder, dysmenorrhea, acne, insomnia, neck stiffness, back and low back pain, degenerative spine conditions, sciatica, joint pain, muscle soreness, trigger finger, stroke (stable), facial palsy, headache, dizziness, cold limbs, fatigue, pruritus, DM, HTN, sjogren's' syndrome, anemia, etc.

[color=#0000FF]1. [/color]If you have never visited TSGH, please go to the registration counter and fill out a "first-time visit form."
If you've been here before, you could make an appoint online : www2.ndmctsgh.edu.tw/webreg/DrList.aspx and skip to Step 3.
[color=#0000FF]2. [/color]After that, give the form to the receptionist along with your ID card (and health insurance IC card if you’re with NHI). Tell the receptionist that you want to see [color=#FF0000]Dr. Hsieh[/color] (my last name is exactly the same worlds as “thank” in English：[color=#FF0000]謝[/color]) in [color=#FF0000]Chinese medicine department[/color]. Or you could just tell them the [color=#FF0000]clinic room number[/color], make sure you show up at the right clinic time section and remember the right clinic room number. They will register for you.
[color=#0000FF]3. [/color]Go to clinic room (162, 176 in Neihu or 220 in Tingchou branch), insert your NHI card to the card reader under the display screen near the clinic door. If you’re not with NHI, you could knock the door and tell the nurse that you’re here.
[color=#0000FF]4. [/color]Wait outside for a little bit. We can’t guarantee the time to see you since patients come at their own convenience. Please bring something to read. Sometimes no one's waiting and you could come in right away.
[color=#0000FF]5. [/color]we'll do a detailed TCM history taking, including asking you some questions about your symptoms and body constitution, see your tongue and feel your pulse. For the first visit, I'll prescribe herbal medicine for 1-2 weeks and/or do acupuncture, which usually will take 15 minutes. If everything goes well, we can prescribe for a longer period of time the second time you visit. (maximum 1 month)
[color=#0000FF]6. [/color]After the treatment, you could go check out at the registration counter.
[color=#0000FF]7. [/color]Pick up the herbal medicine at the pharmacy right in front of Clinic 162 and you're all set.
Looking forward to meet you!
