As a native born Californian who has worked, traveled, trained and taught around the world, Dr. Adler’s scope of medical practice has been broad. Prior to medical school, she completed her Master of Public Health from San Diego State University.

Her training also includes a Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (DTM&H London) during winter of 1996, and she is a Diplomate in the Royal College of Physicians of London.

Her interest in acupuncture and oriental medicine began in the mid 1970’s when she began seeing a Chinese acupuncturist for her personal health. Dr. Adler’s training in acupuncture began in 1985 through UCLA. Since that time, she has become a practitioner and teacher of Auricular Acupuncture. She has trained with Dr. Terry Oleson, Dr. Richard Niemtzow and Dr. Raphael Nogier.
