濟生堂, pronounced "ji sheng tang" in Mandarin Chinese, translates roughly to the "place of service to life." We chose this Chinese name because we view our clinic as the North American extension of the original 濟生堂, a successful Chinese herbal medicine clinic opened by Dr. Eva Kozura's great-grandfather in Huwei 虎尾, Taiwan. Shown here in this picture is Dr. Chris Kozura standing with Dr. Eva's Uncle, Mr. Wu Yu-Tsang, also a medical herbalist, where the original clinic still operates today. Dr. Eva is a 4th generation Chinese medical herbalist.
