About Dr. Ergil
Who I Am and What I Do
I’ve practiced acupuncture and Chinese herbology since 1997. I have substantial experience in treating women's diseases, children, skin conditions, and painful conditions. While I am a general practitioner I have received advanced training in all of these areas. In addition to being a NY State Licensed Acupuncturist, I am a Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (Board certified in Acupuncture and in Chinese Herbology). In 2016 I completed my Doctorate in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
My interest in Chinese medicine grew out of my interest in Chinese language and culture. I studied Chinese in college and studied in Taiwan for a year to hone my language skills. While I was a graduate student I studied with Hen Sen Chin, a noted Chinese herbalist in Seattle. As an anthropologist I did my field research as a student of Chinese Medicine at the Tianjin College of Chinese Medicine in China, taking classes with Chinese students and following senior clinicians in their private practices.
In 1997 I completed my MS in Oriental Medicine at the Pacific College and began a private practice in New York. I have had offices in Manhattan and in Huntington, Long Island. In 2006 I joined the faculty of the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine of NYCC in Seneca Falls. At the College I teach courses in Acupuncture techniques, Chinese medicine, Chinese herbology and the classics of Chinese medicine. I also practice at the Seneca Falls Health Center on the Seneca Falls campus of the New York Chiropractic College.
