Dr. Chiang chose the field of family medicine so she could provide care that addressed each of her patient's physical, emotional and social needs. Her goal is to gain an understanding of each patient as a unique human being because treatment depends on it. "Responses to treatments are very individual," she says. "Even within the same individual, those responses may change from time to time."

Given this philosophy, it was only natural for her to embrace an integrated approach to medicine. "I encountered many ailments that were not classifiable by conventional medicine or life threatening," she explains, "yet they affected patients' quality of life in profound ways. Powerful as conventional medicine can be, it offers no good solutions for such conditions."

Because of her own Chinese background, Dr. Chiang grew up with a real appreciation for acupuncture. She then began looking beyond her medical school training to incorporate treatments such as natural, dietary and herbal alternatives to potent modern prescription drugs, with their attendant side effects. Today, she coordinates her treatment plans with chiropractors, herbalists, nutritionists, psychotherapists and massage therapists.

While serving as a  clinical consultant for WholeHealthMD, Dr. Chiang practiced as a physician and physician-acupuncturist at AWH's Bethesda-Chevy Chase Center from  1998-2000. Today she practices at with the Kaiser Permanete Mid-Atlantic medical group in Fairfax, VA. In her own life, Dr. Chiang uses nutrition, herbs, prescription medication and acupuncture to maintain good health.
