Dr. Max began his studies in 1999 by becoming a certified Oriental Sports Trainer. This led to a deeper interest in Eastern Medicine and he went on to earn both a Master’s and Doctorate degree from Pacific College in San Diego. While attending PCOM he enjoyed working in the integrative settings of both Rady Children’s Hospital and UCSD’s Baker site clinic. Prior to joining the faculty here, Max served as the director of acupuncture services for a San Diego based chronic pain clinic where he developed an integrative acupuncture program for functional restoration in the Worker’s Compensation system.
