Darin believes in building a strong and trusting relationship between patient and practitioner. He builds relationships with patients that are grounded in trust, clear communication, compassion, and professionalism. “To properly diagnose your condition, there must be a clear picture of not only what we see and feel on the outside, but also what is not seen and felt on the inside.” Darin is an advocate of combining compassion with clinical skill to make for the most effective healing process.
Darin’s clinical experience encompasses settings that integrate Western, Eastern and Naturopathic Medicine. Because of his strong background in medical sciences, Darin understands the importance of looking at the entire person, including their Western medical diagnosis and treatment. He uses his advanced training in Chinese Medicine to take a thorough approach to address your health concerns to create a pathway to transform your health. Although Darin relies heavily on the rich and encompassing traditions of Chinese medicine, his collaboration with physicians at Arizona Natural Medicine allows him to access medical input when needed.
