About John Ross

With over thirty years of training and clinical experience in the fields of Natural, Integrated, and Complementary Medicine, Dr. Ross provides his patients with the best of both Ancient and Modern medical care, and a blending of Eastern and Western Traditions.

Evidence-Based Integrated Medicine may hold the solution to Health Issues which are not easily identifiable or treatable by other means. We specialize in the treatment of “Difficult and Unusual Conditions” which have not responded to standard care, either Western or Complementary.

Dr. Ross is proud to continue the practice of Dr J. Michael Moore, founded in Santa Fe in 1976. Trained in a Traditional Master/Apprentice Tutorial, Dr. Ross took over the practice in 2002. East West Medical Arts is one of the oldest continuous Acupuncture and Asian Medicine practices in the United States.
