  • You say you practice Integrative Oriental Medicine. What is that exactly?
  • So what would be an example of when to use what kind of medicine?
  • Acupuncture is still relatively new in the U.S. and still seems to have an aura of mystery. Would you explain what it does it works?
  • What kinds of problems do you treat the most with acupuncture?

In 1986, Dr. McLean provided treatment to patients in pain and drug detoxification units in the San Fernando Valley.
