Dr Scott Ling is a fully qualified, professional traditional Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist.

Dr Ling undertook six years of training at the renowned Shanghai University of traditional Chinese medicine. During this six years period, Dr Ling's studies cover both Chinese medicine and Western medicine. He was also based at several hospitals including three of Shanghai’s largest TCM hospitals, namely Shanghai Yue Yang Hospital, Shanghai Shu Guang Hospital and Shanghai Long Hua Hospital.

As a result, Dr Ling has been widely exposed to all areas of medicine including general medicine, nephrology, rheumatology, neurology, cardiology, respiratory, paediatric, gynaecology, gastroenterology and dermatology in both Western medicine and TCM. Thus, Dr Ling has extensive experience in the practice of acupuncture and the prescription of Chinese herbal medicine.

His extensive qualifications also include a Master of Reproductive Medicine (western medicine). As such, Dr Ling is one of the most highly regarded integrative Chinese medicine practitioners in Melbourne. His patients are referred to him by a wide network of GPs, medical specialists, and alternative as well as complementary health professionals.

Due to his unique medical background, Dr Ling’s approach stresses on the integration of Chinese and Western medicine to ensure patients get the greatest benefits from the best of both medical systems. Before he migrated to Melbourne with his family, he ran a busy medical clinic in Malaysia.

Using the best of both medical systems, Dr Ling aims to help you and your family stay in balance and in harmony.
