Greg Livingston, PhD, LAc, is unique amongst Chinese medicine practitioners in the west. He completed a Chinese Medicine PhD in China, entirely in Chinese, and is one of the few westerners licensed to practice Chinese Medicine in China, where he spent over ten years in total as a student, teacher, and Chinese Medicine physician. Dr. Livingston has over 20 years of clinical experience specializing in general internal medicine with an emphasis on cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. He especially enjoys the challenge of working with individuals who have stubborn and difficult conditions.
Dr. Livingston earned his 4-year Masters in Chinese Medicine from Five Branches Institute (1997), in California, and his PhD in Clinical Chinese Medicine from Zhejiang Chinese Medicine University (2009), in Hangzhou, China. During his 10+ years in China he studied with numerous senior-level doctors, spending thousands of hours in clinic with them and seeing tens-of-thousands of patients. During the majority of this time he also practiced in local and international hospitals and clinics.
Dr. Livingston left China and relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2013. Currently he is a core faculty member at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM), and maintains a private practice at Root and Branch clinic in Portland’s west-side hills.
