Priscilla Kerr has 11 years of post-secondary education as a medical doctor & TCM Doctor/ Acupuncturist. Her training as a resident of Traditional Chinese Medicine was extensive and supervised with high standards at University of Sao Paulo, School of Medicine. According to the 2020 CWTS Leiden Ranking, the University of São Paulo was ranked 7th in the world and 2nd in Latin America.
Despite not practicing as a MD in Manitoba/ Canada she accumulated all this knowledge to help her Canadian patients with an accurate TCM assessment, treatment and follow up. Most of the patients that come for acupuncture help already received a assessment by their MD, but they could not find complete relief with the Western Medicine approach. But when Eastern and Western Medicine are combined the patient can get the best results with a more holistic approach.
Patients don’t need a medical referral to have acupuncture treatments, but most of the time they come by their primary physician’s recommendations. In case a patient has not seem a physician in a long time and she can identify a condition that needs immediate medical attention she will make sure the patients see a MD before coming back for treatments, due to her education background she can identify when the patient must seek medical help and when could be very harmful to lose the proper timing for assessment and treatment under Western Medicine. In these cases, she will refer patients back to her MD and once investigation and treatment is completed by their primary physician, she will gladly treat the patient according to Eastern Medicine. The Acupuncture and TCM Dr. Practitioner Priscilla Kerr receives referrals from her Colleagues physicians on a regular basis and they know they can trust her TCM skills and judgment. There is space for working, growing and learning together in Health Care, Western or Eastern Perspective, we are working hard for the same goal that is to improve the health and life quality of our patients.
