We are a unique and alternative medical practice devoted to treatment and healing of complex conditions including cancer, fertility, autoimmune, neurodegenerative, and other refractory medical problems. The practice was founded in 1997 by Dr. Raymond Chang, who currently serves as Medical Director of the clinic, and clinical services are provided by a core of expert practitioners. The clinic is an affiliate of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Institute of East-West Medicine which is advised by a distinguished Board of senior physicians and researchers.

We emphasize a no-nonsense approach to conditions refractory or poorly responsive to conventional medicine. Contrary to the current trend of managed care and protocolized “cafeteria” treatment of patients, Meridian considers each patient individually and customizes a healing program blending conventional and alternative, Eastern as well as Western approaches with the patient’s optimal health and recovery in mind.
