Her initial motivation to study and train in alternative approaches to health care was a personal one. After suffering with endometriosis for 12 years, Dr. Schiff became disillusioned and frustrated with the limitations of Western medical protocols, and sought an alternative course of treatment that would enable her to manage and overcome her disabling condition. In the hands of well-trained Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, her health changed significantly over a six month period through a combination of Oriental based massage, acupuncture, and Chinese herbs. This gave Dr. Schiff a new lease on life. She was so impressed that she made the decision to pursue the finest TCM education available in the field. Dr. Schiff completed her studies at the University of Florida, the New Center College for Holistic Health and Research in Syosset, New York, The Heilong Jiang University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Harbin, China and the Community School for Traditional Chinese Medicine, North Miami Beach, Florida. She has interned with Randine Lewis, Ph.D., author of the Infertility Cure and founder of the Fertile Soul Retreats. Dr. Schiff is also a charter member of the Fertile Soul Clinic Excellence in Infertility program. She is also the founder and creator of www.AcuBaby.com, an integrative web resource for the Infertility community, both patient and practitioner alike. In Palm Beach County, Dr. Schiff is the clinical director of Acupuncture Associates and treats patients in Delray Beach, Florida. She has been treating patients for a broad range of health issues for over a decade, with a special concentration and expertise in gynecology and reproductive wellness. Dr. Schiff works closely with many reproductive endocrinologists, OBGYNs, internists and supportive practitioners to provide a team approach for her patient base. She continues to study and train with classic masters and specialists throughout the world. Susan G.
