About Dr. Aleksandra Mihajlovic, DTCM, L.Ac.,
I used to hear the expression that “children are your greatest teachers” and expected to see a young Buddha tell me life-altering truths. Once I was a mother, I realized that your children put you on a path to seek knowledge out of desire to prevent their suffering. It was my quest as a mom to have wider non-drug/surgical health options that led me on the path to study Chinese Medicine.
I love showing up in my clinic every day and making a difference in my patient’s lives.
Being a doctor is not a profession for me, but a calling of a lifelong passion for learning and helping people lead better, happier lives.
