Welcome to the Eastern Medicine & Acupuncture Center
Dr. Sophia Pan founded the Eastern Medicine & Acupuncture Center as a place to receive dedicated and comprehensive health care from the holistic and natural practices of traditional Chinese medicine. The Center is located in Walnut Creek, in the East of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Sophia opened the Center in 2018, after more than 10 years of practice in Taiwan as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and 4 years of practice as a Licensed Acupuncturist in California. After earning her medical degree from China Medical University, Dr. Pan practiced medicine at the Taiwan City Hospital and the Wan Fang Hospital for several years before practicing in private clinics.
In parallel to helping patients at the Eastern Medicine & Acupuncture Center, Dr. Pan taught theoretical and clinical classes in the Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine at Five Branches University in San Jose, California. At the University Clinic, she oversaw treatments for a wide variety of conditions across the many patients who come to the clinic for health care.
Sophia is also a former Acupuncture staff member at North East Medical Services (NEMS), a non-profit community health center serving the medically-undeserved populations of the San Francisco Bay Area. She participates in local community health fair programs sponsored by Buddha Gate Monastery and by Five Branches University in the Bay Area.
We invite you to visit the Eastern Medicine & Acupuncture Center to learn more about how traditional Chinese medicine can help you achieve a higher quality of life.

I highly recommend Sophia Pan. Sophia was the only Doctor able to treat my condition, after years of suffering from extreme premenstrual headache and nausea, making me unable to function during those monthly times. I spent hundreds of dollars consulting with various Chinese and Western medicine practitioners for more than seven years, including a famous TCM Doctor in Taiwan. None of the treatments I received were effective, with most doctors reverting to pain killer after the treatment failed. Sophia changed all of that. Her herbal prescription was effective immediately and it took just three months for my condition to completely disappear.
It has been now a few years since Sophia treated me.I wanted to leave this testimony as I cannot be more grateful to Sophia Pan for what she did for me. I consider her as an exceptional traditional Chinese medicine practitioner. I now consult her for any condition I have. She is involved in traditional Chinese medicine research, participating in a Doctoral Program at a TCM University in San Jose and instructing students. She is one of the most compassionate person I know and you can feel immediately that her focus is on treating your illness above all other considerations.— Angela L.
