East-West Consultative Care


UCLA Center for East-West Medicine (CEWM) began as a subspecialty consultative clinic in 1993, and has since become known throughout the UCLA Health system for its patient-centered approach that utilizes therapeutic practices from both the Western medical model and traditional Chinese medicine. While patients throughout the spectrum of disease often benefit from the combination approach, it has also become known as the clinic of last resort for referring providers with patients that are refractory to the best of modern Western medicine. As a patient in consultative care, you are empowered to take part in the healing process through patient-centered education, focusing on self-care techniques, home exercise program and integrative Chinese nutrition. Currently, there are three clinical locations that offer East-West medicine consultative care: Santa Monica, Westlake Village and Torrance.
