Diplomate in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) 1994

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I graduated from Santa Clara University with a degree in Chemistry. After working in marketing and sales of scientific instrumentation, I became drawn to learn more about one of my earlier interests: herbal medicine. As I began to appreciate more about the rich history of Chinese herbal medicine, I visited an acupuncturist to experience a treatment first hand. I truly had been searching for a career that supported the alignment of my head and my heart. I found that life work in Chinese Medicine. It has been my pleasure to serve the needs of my patients in this Los Gatos clinic since 1994. I have worked in all areas of health care in treating musculoskeletal and headache pain, acute and chronic disease, and in supporting the body's healing from injuries and accidents. I have also worked in meeting the unique needs of women's health, through all the phases of a woman's life.

Meredith is a caring, nurturing person who really takes the time to listen to what is happening to my body. Her approach is very healing in itself. 


For someone who has lots of trouble relaxing and sleeping issues, it blows my mind that I can become completely 100% relaxed on the acupuncture table. Meredith is one of the most caring people I have ever met and I just soak up all the time I have with her.


I was told that I would need knee replacement surgery, and that I should start looking around for a good surgeon. A friend recommended that I see Meredith for the pain, as my friend had received a lot of relief for her back pain from regular visits to Meredith. I have been seeing Meredith for the last 3 years, with an improvement in mobility and pain levels, such that I have put off plans for joint replacement indefinitely. R.S.​ Meredith definitely helped with allergies. I was so tired of the congestion and headaches, the foggy head and fatigue. I saw her regularly through one tough allergy season, my symptoms improving with each treatment. When the spring allergy season kicked in the year following, I needed just one or two treatments to return me to a symptom free state. Why didn't I try acupuncture sooner? T.B.

Meredith is a caring, nurturing person who really takes the time to not only listen to what is happening to my body, but to other aspects of my life that may also pertain (job stress, etc.) Her approach is very healing in itself. P.L.

Meredith is an amazing doctor.  She has helped me with my migraines, and has helped my daughter with her arthritis.  She always goes above and beyond.  I have had a great experience in every visit that I have had.  On top of her being wonderful, the setting in her office is beautiful.


Meredith has helped me with chronic (auto-immune) pain and fatigue for years. The acupuncture and herbs have made a significant difference in my life. I am no longer  dependent upon the very strong pain meds that I had been prescribed for years. I feel like I have my life back. G.L.
