Yang Zhen, MD: Medical School graduate, medical degree, physician
Due to her many years of clinical experience and her dedicated work ethic, Dr. Yang Chen is able to maintain a high standard rate of diagnostic accuracy. This has enabled her to accurately determine root causes of health conditions that are often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed by others.
For example, Dr. Yang served two cases of obstructive jaundice without determination of etiology even after extensive testing. Dr. Yang was able to accurately diagnose one case as common bile duct cancer and the other as adhesion of colon due to colon cancer compression. Both cases were later confirmed by surgery.
In a breast cancer screening, Dr. Yang found a 7 mm tumor, the smallest size of a high-risk tumor that was later confirmed by surgery.
After graduating from medical school in 1983, Dr. Yang worked to a township hospital as a resident in the internal medicine and pediatrics department. She was transferred to a general country hospital in January 1985 and worked in internal medicine, pediatrics and the ER department.
She was transferred to the Ultrasound Department in 1991 and took charge of conducting tests and diagnosis of abdominal, OB GYN, cardiovascular and small superficial organ-related conditions, which advanced in her involvement in interventional treatments, ECG tests, diagnosis and ultrasound lithotripsy in the treatment of ureterolithiasis.
Due to Dr. Yang’s excellent performance and masterful skills, she was promoted to Department Director and was responsible for ultrasound diagnosis and interventional treatment, training interns, and conducting internal consultation at the hospital.
In addition to her vast clinical knowledge, Dr. Yang participates in continuing education courses and attends lectures by famous experts to further her professional standards.
In 2006 Dr. Yang immigrated to the United States and focused on studying English for three years.
In 2009 she completed a certification program on Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture and Tui-na from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine Adult Education Training Courses.
In 2010 she self-studied Dr. Hai-Sha Ni’s instructional materials on “Acupuncture and Moxibustion,” “Huang Di Nei Jing,” “Shen Nong Materia Medica,” ”Shang Han Lun” and “Jin Gui Yao Lue” and subsequently attended a two-month clinical training with Dr. Ni later that summer. She witnessed Dr. Ni applying Traditional Chinese herbs to treat various diseases and followed his teachings on disease etiology, pathology, diagnosis, differential diagnosis and treatment principles for different diseases.
While interning with Dr. Ni, they treated diseases from common cold to cancer, from arthritis to SLE (Systemic Lupus Erythematosus), from infertility to metrorrhagia, from diabetes, heart disease to kidney failure, heart and lung failure and more. Upon returning to China later that year, Dr. Yang was able to apply the clinical herbal formulas taught by Dr. Ni and achieved success in treating hypertension, hypoglycemia, diabetes, coronary heart disease, enlarged prostate, common cold, pneumonia, diarrhea, skin conditions, and breast cysts.
For example, a cancer patient with advanced stage throat cancer who was unable to drink was able to eat congee on the same day of Dr. Yang’s treatment. Another patient who had prolonged severe night sweats for a month, accompanied by phlegm and occasional bloody sputum with treatments to no avail, was successfully treated with Dr. Yang’s herbal prescription, and the sweating stopped at the first night after taking the herbs.
Dr. Yang continues to expand her knowledge in TCM. She strongly believes that Traditional Chinese Medicine takes the right approach in treating and curing diseases.
