Shiroko Sokitch, MD
Dr. Shiroko Sokitch is a board certified medical acupuncturist, acclaimed medical doctor, and keynote speaker. She graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1984 and the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle, WA in 1990. She did two years of a general surgery residency at Swedish Hospital in Seattle before deciding that the surgeon’s way of life was not for her. While attending acupuncture school and starting her alternative medical career, she practiced as an emergency medical physician for ten years.
Since 1993, Dr. Shiroko has owned and operated Heart to Heart to Heart Medical Center, a complementary medical center in Santa Rosa, CA. She is quite excited to be the only doctor of her type in the area. Since January of 2000, she has also written an alternative medical advice column in three local Sonoma County Newspapers.

She is an expert at helping you navigate the understanding of Western medicine in combination with alternative medicine. Her unique perspective will help you understand what your soul and body are trying to communicate to you.
In May of 2009, she and her friend Sivan Garr, spiritual teacher, decided they wanted to help a larger audience with their work. They began filming Perspectives on Healing, a public access television show that is now airing in 9 cities in California.
