Many years ago and as a long time resident of Visalia, CA, Mr. Robbins recognized the need for natural and holistic medicine in the Central Valley. To that end, in the early 1990's he decided to re-invent himself. He went back to school and spent the next 5 years studying Western and Eastern medicine obtaining a Masters of Science Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Academy of Chinese Culture and Health Sciences in Oakland, CA. In any other health profession, i.e., MD, Dentist, Chiropractor, Podiatrist, etc. this would be eqvivalent to a clinical doctorate but in the State of California it is limited to Masters level.
He is co-founder, President and CEO of the Center for Integrated Medicine. Not since the 1800's when there was no doubt Chinese immigrants practicing acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine in Visalia he is the most tenured practitoner of this ancient healing art. The Center for Integrated Medicine maintains two locations, one in Visalia and one in Hanford, CA. Recently, the Hanford clinic has been converted to a Community Acupuncture clinc, the first of it's kind in the Central Valley. In the interest of helathcare reform, this was Mr. Robbins' attempt at a free market solution to the rising cost of healthcare in Kings County.
Mr. Robbins believes that "the differences between Western and Eastern medicine are not that one should be regarded as being superior to the other but that they should be sought out as to their benefit to the patient depending on their individual circumstances and after weighing the pros and cons of treatment. Both serve their purpose. In the final analysis, there is no dichotomy of medicine, however, there is only one medicine and that one medicine encompasses all healing."
Mr. Robbins has written and lectured on many topics of Chinese medicine. Mr. Robbins is a member of the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is a Doctorate Fellow at Five Branches University, San Jose, CA

I interviewed Mr. Robbins who is a co-founder, President and CEO of the Center for Integrated Medicine. This is a private practice with his colleague Dr. Kwong providing services in Visalia, A and Mr. Robbins providing services in Hanford, CA.
...
I was not able to observe Mr. Robbins treating a patient but he did allow me to interview him with several prepared questions. I am also now a participant in a study he is conducting on treating people with high blood pressure with TCM, with a first appointment on 2 Dec.
...
Mr. Robbins does not believe that one medicine is better than the other, and they co-exist to improve the health of all patients. He had received referrals from doctors of Western medicine and has referred patients of his own to Western doctors. One example he gave was if a patient is having problems with their thyroid, he will strongly recommend they see a Western doctor and have some tests done. He stated that Western medicine was designed to treat emergencies and uses lab work and machines to treat the symptoms of an illness and is more evasive.
...
Another school of thought believes as Mr. Robbins also believes that TCM needs to update its terminology so it can be understood and will become more integrated with Western doctors and insurers. An example he used is telling a Western doctor that a patient has Qi blockage in their knee preventing the flow of energy and blood will not be as easily accepted as diagnosing a patient with neurovascular blockage in their knee.
My last question asked if he thought TCM could be used to treat children with ADD. He stated that TCM and herbal medicine could definitely be used to treat ADD.

Thank you, F. E. Robbins, L.Ac., MSTCM, CEO Center for Integrated Medicine.
