Bob Quinn DAOM, L.Ac.


Bob’s strong interest in medicinal herbs is what originally brought him to the study of Chinese medicine, eventually leaving behind his earlier career in high school education. This interest in herbs began in the early 1970s and continued as a hobby for years. In 1983 he began his formal study of Western herbal medicine; this was followed 12 years later by his study of Chinese medicine. In 1998, Dr. Quinn graduated from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) with a master’s degree and in 2007 with his doctorate in Chinese medicine. He was a member of the first cohort in the U.S. to graduate from a fully accredited doctoral degree program in Oriental medicine.

Dr. Quinn supervises the Clinical Internship Rotation at the National College of Natural Medicine (NCNM) and also regularly teaches several courses on acupuncture, herbal medicine, and Asian Bodywork. A writer as well, Dr. Quinn has contributed articles, case studies, book reviews, and interviews to professional publications such as the North American Journal of Oriental Medicine and The Journal of Chinese Medicine, along with monthly columns in community papers for the public. Bob has a private practice in SE Portland. In his spare time he practices taiji and qigong and enjoys getting out to the woods whenever he can.
