Healing Teams

While each patient receives personal care and attention, their doctor is supported through a healing team concept. Our patients receive the advantage of a breadth of knowledge and experience in ancient healing practices and modern, scientific approaches. The healing team concept also makes the most of Dr. Chen's experience in integrating specialties, treatment modalities, and Western medicine.


Yi Lin Medical Center has 3,682 square feet containing 9 fully equipped clinical treatment rooms and an extensive herb pharmacy, all with traditional Chinese Feng Shui design and decor. The herb pharmacy has numerous patent medicines and over 450 loose herbs used to create individual, personalized formulas.
